2019 Engagement Ring Trends

It is that time of year once again: the holiday proposals. And we are right smack in the middle of it. Christmas Eve through Valentine’s Day is an incredibly popular time to get engaged. With all of this love in the air it is time to dive right in to the top engagement ring trends for 2019.

Whatever statement you want your brand-new bauble to make, it should definitely say “I love you!” and be a true reflection of your personal style. It may seem overwhelming at first, but we are here to help you find the perfect style that you will love.

Pear shaped diamonds are resurfacing as a popular trend, and for good reason; its faceted cut and feminine curves make it one of the most elegant and flattering shapes for the hand. When paired with delicate diamond halos it can highlight the stone’s shape and intensify its sparkle.

Even within this particular cut there are a variety of styles. One stand-out is this exquisite ring by Steven Kretchmer. The elegant platinum helix style is unique for a pear shaped stone to maximize the brilliance.

A more “traditional” look is this delicate 18karat white gold setting, with a 0.80cts diamond halo.

If you are unsure about using a pear shaped diamond as the center stone, consider placing them on the sides instead. In this sparkler the pear shaped diamonds flank a lovely oval stone for a stunning look. These romantic and round inspired brilliant cut diamonds are close in sparkle and feel to a traditional round diamond. This helps the engagement ring stand out.

Baguette diamonds will be the stone of choice for accents in 2019 engagement rings. Their rectangular shape is what sets them apart from classic diamond cuts, but they still add an element of elegance to the ring.

This amazing ring by Tacori features 0.68cts of baguettes and round diamonds that embellish the princess cut center stone, giving it a uniquely stunning feel.

The Bypass ring is also a style that we will see more of this engagement season. Originally popular in the Victorian era, this style was usually given as an engagement ring because it symbolized two souls coming together as one (aww). Today bypass rings have become popular because they offer a great mix of minimalist and negative spacing that you don’t get with traditional rings.

One of our favorite ring designers Steven Kretchmer, has a few different bypass styles that you can choose from.

Micro pave bands are a great trend that we are loving. Many couples are moving towards having a very thin micro-pave diamond band on their engagement ring and for their wedding band as well. This ultra-thin look highlights the beauty and size of the center stone.

Multi-stone rings are having a real moment. You can use a variety of cuts to create different silhouettes on a standard band. And stacking three – or even five! – stones side by side gives an engagement ring some serious stature.

Check out this five stone ring featuring 1.26cts of emerald cut diamonds, D in color, VS1 in clarity, framed with four trapezoid diamonds in the mounting. Simply breathtaking.

Everything’s Coming Up Rose Gold

There’s no question that there has been a trend in gold this year. Rose Gold in particular has risen and remained at the top of women’s fashion must-have lists.

It’s really no wonder that this gold is so popular. The softness of rose gold can add a feminine, yet glamorous, touch to your look in any season.

Rose gold first rose to popularity in the 19th century in Russia. During the 1920s, Cartier debuted the now iconic Trinity ring of rose, white, and yellow gold, bringing rose gold back to the forefront of fashion. Although Rose Gold is currently trending, it’s not to be confused with a simple fad. Rose Gold is classically beautiful and easy to wear with many outfits. It is so sought-after today, that even Apple is introducing a Rose Gold tone iPhone this year–finally!

 


Ready to embrace the beauty of Rose Gold? This simple yet elegant 18 karat rose gold Marrakech bracelet by Marco Bicego unites femininity and minimalism masterfully. Less is definitely more with this beauty.
