Sophisticated, simple and classic designs with a unique touch are all about engagement ring trends 2021. Jewellery designers are maintaining elegance with more personalized features than ever to resonate the new reality.
Engagement Ring Trend #1: Solitaire
The trend for solitaire engagement rings is back again. It never actually went out of style, but 2020 has shown us that less is more. Whether you prefer four or six-prong setting, plain or pavé band, it is time to pair striking diamonds of classic cuts such as round and oval with delicate bands. This trend is perfect for those who prefer stylish and elegant designs. Brides-to-be are coveting the austerity of minimalist engagement rings more than ever.
Engagement Ring Trend #2: Gallery Details
Like in 2020, adding a hidden touch to solitaire engagement rings will be a popular choice. Classic rings with tiny diamond accents on the gallery provide a beautiful and unique look to your piece of jewellery. Such detailing serves to both adding extra sparkle and a little secret to your engagement ring and is a perfect chance to set yourself apart from the crowd.
Engagement Ring Trend #3: Delecate Halo
No surprise, halo engagement rings are popular – after all, they make the centre stone appear larger. Halos are staying in the game for 2021 too. Like in 2020, more and more couples are getting creative with halo designs, choosing hidden halos, unusual shapes and gemstone combinations. However, we should not forget that current jewellery designs are to resonate the new reality, meaning the diamonds surrounding the central gemstone should look delicate not to overpower it.
Engagement Ring Trend #4: Three-Stone Rings
Three-stone setting is still one of the most popular choices when it comes to an engagement ring. Designed to represent the past, current moments of your relationship and future, its symbolism is filled with aesthetics and personal significance. This ring comes in various styles, but it is not your mother’s or grandmother’s classic three same cut diamond ring. 2021 brings us a brand new design with three diamonds or other gemstones of different cuts that truly make a statement.
Engagement Ring Trend #5: Art Deco and Vintage
Art Deco and vintage designs have made a serious comeback in 2020. More and more brides-to-be will be opting for vintage designs with unique antique cuts such as Old Mine and Old European cut in 2021. Even those who are rather looking for a contemporary engagement ring than a ring from that period will be choosing detailed work and intricate designs accented with an invisible setting. If you are an everything-has-meaning type of person, then it is your time to shine. This is a wonderful occasion to custom design your engagement ring in vintage style as each unique trait of the ring will tell your story.
