If you’re new to the whole bridal jewelry scene, you probably have a few questions. We’re here to help you navigate the glittery waters of engagement rings and clue you in on some of the hottest ring trends for summer 2020.
Halo ring settings have grown in popularity, especially over the last five years. This is an excellent choice for a summertime engagement ceremony. The halo settings are intentional with one goal in mind, to make the center stone pop and look larger than it really is! Halo engagement rings are essentially solitaire rings with a halo of diamonds surrounding them, accentuating the main attraction which is the center diamond or gemstone.
Colorful Gemstone Engagement Ring
Emeralds, rubies, sapphires oh my. Who doesn’t like a pop of color on their ring finger? Not only are brightly colored gemstone rings super popular right now, but they are quickly becoming the go-to choice for summer engagement rings as well. One truly hypnotic gemstone is the purple-blue hues of tanzanite. Encircle a beautifully cut sapphire or tanzanite stone with a halo of diamonds and it is sure to knock your lover’s socks off.
Typically Intricate and uniquely ornate, vintage engagement rings are all the rage right now. Vintage rings can have a ton of filigree, gold or silver wiring formed into delicate tracery, or even a hint of art deco. Whatever the style, vintage rings are highly sought after because of their originality. You can feel good about showing off your ring knowing it is highly unlikely that you’ll find someone else wearing the same one. Vintage rings could even be a family heirloom. And if you can’t get your hands on an authentic vintage band, you may want to consider custom design to recreate the vintage engagement ring of your dreams.
Three-Stone Engagement Ring
This is a really versatile engagement ring choice and can be customized to suit a wide range of diamond shapes and cuts including, emerald, cushion, oval, heart, and pear shapes, amongst others. Three-stone engagement rings feature diamonds on either side of the larger stone to accentuate the size and grandeur of the main diamond. And don’t think for a second that the three-stone arrangement has to be all diamonds. Keeping with the theme of versatility, you can opt to use colored diamonds or different gemstones that truly represent your loved one’s taste and style.
Solitaire Engagement Ring
As the name suggests, a solitaire diamond engagement ring is about as traditional as it gets. That’s why it makes our list. Solitaire rings put the emphasis on the center stone. And what’s even better about this is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the setting. Since solitaire rings don’t require intricate settings due to the absence of accent diamonds, you can put the majority of your budget towards the center stone.
