Thinking about proposing this year? Keep up to date with the latest engagement ring trends for 2020. Using our expert opinion and sales data, we’ve compiled a list of jewellery options that strike the right balance between trendy and timeless.
Oval Shaped Diamonds
Oval diamonds have become increasingly popular over the past few years because they display their carat weight well and are finger flattering. With celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Katherine Schwarzenegger, Bindi Irwin and more opting for oval diamonds, they are expected to remain popular through 2020.
Pear Shaped Diamonds
Pear shaped diamonds, along with other elongated shapes are also increasing in popularity. Recent celebrity wearers include Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Paris Hilton. Pear shaped diamonds are a great choice for people looking for a unique look and great value.
Yellow Gold and Platinum Settings
Yellow gold or platinum ring styles are hugely popular at the moment. This is due to people trending towards a blend of classic/timeless style and a dainty, contemporary twist. The warm tone of yellow gold in particular pairs beautifully with classic and vintage inspired styles.
Stacked and Nested Rings
We expect people will continue to lean towards classic style engagement rings a spiced-up look with stacks of sparkling bands. Whether diamond-accented, chevron, curved or crescent shaped, these accompaniments are a wonderful complement to any engagement ring, allowing the wearer to express their unique style.
An alternative to the classic engagement ring, a fancy shaped eternity band features a dazzling display of smaller diamonds arranged in a long row. This style offers maximum sparkle from every angle and is a great choice for the type of person who dreams of a statement ring that sets them apart.
A hidden halo essentially involves decorating a structural part of the existing ring. This means adding pavé diamonds to the metal wire on the basket of the ring. Unlike a typical halo, a hidden halo doesn’t change or affect the look of your overall ring. It simply provides a glimpse of sparkle from the side for a subtle, classy look.
Shared Prong Style Rings
Floating shared prong style rings look as though they are made of a band of floating diamonds. This makes for a stunning and eye-catching look, making these rings the type that cause a stir when they appear on social media posts. They are particularly gorgeous when paired with an oval center diamond.
