Engagement Ring Trends To Watch Out For In 2019

Choosing the perfect diamond ring isn't always easy. With so many styles and designs available on the market, it's overwhelming to decide on the perfect stone and setting. Throw in your special someone's personal tastes and things are bound to get more complicated. To help you with your search, we've rounded up the top engagement ring trends to expect in 2019.

Coloured stones

Coloured stones are becoming more popular for brides who want to stand out from the crowd or those looking for something that truly reflects their personality. Coloured stones also add a pop of colour to a classic white diamond engagement ring and add to its uniqueness. Popular choices include rubies, yellow diamonds, and blue sapphires.

Pear cut diamonds

Looking for something different than the usual round and cushion cut? Pear cut diamonds might just be for you. While pear cut diamonds have once been considered as unusual, they have regained popularity, especially when Pete Davidson proposed to then-fiancee Ariana Grande with a stunning pear-shaped rock. To make pear cut diamonds stand out more, try incorporating them into a halo setting.

Pearl and diamonds

Pearl jewellery has become popular again lately so it's no surprise that it's been making the rounds on everyone's Pinterest boards. Pearl and diamond engagement rings are effortlessly elegant and chic, making it ideal for the classic bride.

Double bands

Brides are now choosing for interlocking options like the double band instead of stacking the wedding band below the engagement ring. This look can be created in different ways, such as with a simple twisted band or a more intricate one.

Halo setting

The halo setting has always been a classic thanks to its versatility in design and it's not going away anytime soon. The halo setting is typically made by flanking a single centre diamond with smaller diamonds. This makes the centre diamond appear bigger. For a twist, you can replace the centre diamond with a different coloured stone to create a more signature look.

Overall, the most important thing that counts when choosing the right diamond engagement ring is how you feel about it. While these trends are worth noting, you should always follow what you think is the best option for your special someone.
