Engagement Ring Styles Trending This Holiday Season
November 5th, 2021
The holiday season is an inherently sentimental, family-oriented time of year, making it a great opportunity to ask the love of your life for their hand. Central to this moment is, of course, the ring. Their engagement ring is a piece they’ll keep forever, so you want to strike the right balance between trendy and timeless. We’re here to help!
Elongated Center Stones
One of the hottest trends we’re seeing this winter season is elongated center stones like emerald, marquise, pear, and oval cut. These shapes create the illusion of a larger stone and make the wearer’s finger appear long and slender.
Oval cut rings have persisted as one of the most popular new engagement ring trends of the past few years. The unique marquise and pear cut diamonds are also gaining well-deserved popularity. Present your love with one of these stunning stones this holiday for guaranteed shock-value.
The Classic Solitaire
There is a reason this style of ring persists. A single stone set beautifully atop a glittering band produces an undeniably dramatic effect. This style is modernized by new takes on the band of a solitaire ring.
Past decades featured thicker bands, but, today, the thinner the band the better. Bands can either be simplistic, further drawing the focus to the center stone, or feature delicate details and metalwork. A solitaire ring with a thin band also makes it ideal for stacking other rings like wedding and anniversary bands, another trend gaining major traction this year.
Mixing metals is popular in all areas of jewelry right now, and it’s one of our favorite engagement ring trends of the moment. Sterling silver or white gold have been the most common engagement ring metals for years, so add dimension and visual intrigue to your ring with a pop of yellow or rose gold. A two-tone ring is unique and eye-catching, great for your trendy fiancé to be.
Next Level Halos
Halo settings are phenomenal choices for a holiday proposal because they add extra shimmer to your center diamond reminiscent of the sparkling lights of the holiday season. But this year, designers are taking halos to the next level.
Hidden halos, double halos, and side-stone halos are making their appearance in engagement ring collections around the globe. If your partner is a fan of sparkle, this style is sure to stun and enchant them.
In the past few years, we’ve seen designers and buyers alike opting for a more creative approach to their engagement rings. Colorful diamonds and gemstones offer a unique alternative to traditional white diamonds that we absolutely love.
Choose their birthstone or favorite color to feature in the center of their ring. A deep red garnet or vibrant emerald would be very fitting for a holiday engagement!
