Now that it’s engagement season, many would-be brides and grooms are looking at rings. Whether you’re proposing this year or you're interested in what might be adorning your own hand pretty soon, there's no better time to check out the top engagement ring trends for this year:
1. Splashes of Color
One of the biggest engagement ring trends in 2019 is a pop of color. Steering away from the precious metal and icy diamonds seen previously, couples are increasingly choosing rings with color accents. Some are skipping diamonds entirely and choosing brightly hued stones instead. While color can be a lot of fun, be aware that most colored gemstones are not suitable for the rigors of everyday wear necessary for an engagement ring.
2. Mixed Metals
Many of the most coveted rings mix metals in unique ways. Whether it’s platinum and yellow gold or two types of gold, the contrast can create a modern or classical look. Combining metals can also make a ring work well with different kinds of jewelry and can offset a stone beautifully.
3. Pear Shapes
Pear-shaped stones are one of the top engagement ring trends of this year. From diamonds to other gems, many jewels are set in a pear shape, especially at unusual angles or in unique settings.
4. Unique Settings and Cuts
Many couples today are passing on a traditional band with a round stone and are looking for pieces as unique as their love. From double bands to half-moon diamond stones to shield stones, everyone wants something different.
5. Antique and Vintage Rings
Antique, heirloom and previously owned rings that have withstood the test of time are making a massive comeback in 2019. Many brides like the environmental friendliness of an antique ring. Additionally, older rings often have settings and details not common today, allowing couples to enjoy something special in their ring choice.
6. Multiple Stones
Side stones and rings with stones on the band are some of today's most popular designs. Depending on the ring, this can create an Art Deco feel or a more luxurious “big stone” look. Three-stone rings have been popular since Prince Harry announced his engagement, and two-stone rings and multi-stone settings have gained a lot of traction as well.
7. Double Bands
Why pick out just one band when you can have two? Double bands, criss-cross bands and other variations shift from the simple band that was part and parcel of traditional rings for so long. Double bands make engagement rings look more fashion-forward.
8. Little Details
Micro pavé, tiny diamond detailing and accented galleries are hot right now. Some couples want little details etched just for them onto the band to make a mostly traditional ring slightly more unique.
9. Yellow Gold
Warm yellow gold is enjoying its moment in the sun in 2019. This is the most popular metal used in engagement rings this year. It works beautifully with most stones and styles. Even those who opt for white gold are choosing natural white gold, which has a warmer glow.
10. Conscious Rings
Today’s couples don’t want their love story to include exploitation or environmental harm. Many are conscious consumers are asking more questions about sourcing and process. Here at Koser Jewelers, we are proud to source and operate with the highest of ethical and environmental standards.
