As winter finally releases us from its frosty clutches we can feel that spring and summer are truly on their way, and that means all the couples you expect to get engaged will soon upload their announcement photos. (As well as some couples you didn’t!)
If you are one of those couples congratulations on finding the one, and if you’re just here because you adore beautiful jewelry, well, so do we. While classic engagement ring styles will endure the test of time there are always stunning new styles that come into fashion each engagement season, so let’s take a look at some of the top styles for 2020.
Mixed Metals Engagement Rings
In 2020, couples are looking for ways to make their engagement rings as unique as they are, and one way to do this is by mixing their metals. White gold and rose gold have been in vogue for many years, and we’ll now see them brought together on the same band to create something truly special, without straying too far from a classic style. Our Hoyt Two-Tone Engagement Ring is a perfect example.
Multi-Stone Engagement Rings
When Meghan Markle stepped out in her three-stone engagement ring, brides-to-be all over the world set their sights on a multi-stone engagement ring. Even with the royal wedding long-since passed, this trend is set to continue in 2020 and beyond, as we see rings with three, five, or even more stones on their engagement band.
The beauty of a multi-stone ring is in their versatility; couples can customize them relatively easily to find a combination of setting, band, stones, and cuts they haven’t seen before on anyone else’s finger. The Isla, one of our latest designs, showcases three emerald cut diamonds beautifully.
The Return of Asscher Cut Diamonds
Asscher cut diamonds were huge back in the 1920s and 30s in the Art Deco era, and a century later they are making a comeback. This cut is elegant, unique, and catches the light spectacularly. Asscher cut diamonds are stunning set with other stones or look incredibly modern when set alone on a simple band of any color. This cut is timeless, so it’s perfect if you envision having a ring that can be passed down through the generations.
Ethically and Sustainably Sourced Rings
Like you, many of the people getting engaged in 2020 (and beyond) have passionate beliefs about what is ethical, and they simply aren’t prepared to throw those values out when they buy their rings. Choosing lab created diamonds and gemstones and 100% recycled metals for your ring is a great way to make sure your purchase is in line with your personal ethics. The Lilac Wedding Set puts a modern bezel on your choice of lab-grown diamond shape.
Of course, these modern engagement trends are just some ideas you can work with, but if none of these speak to you there are thousands of other combinations to consider. If modern isn’t for you, check out our collection of vintage and antique inspired rings are more your style.
