5 Engagement Ring Trends In 2020 You Need To Watch Out For

Posted on

2019 has come to a close, and it’s time we embrace the new year. As with every new year, a change in trend is usually not far behind. Just as wedding dress trends evolve with the fashion movement, so do jewellery trends.

If the change you’re looking forward to is tying the knot with your partner, take a sneak peek at the engagement ring trends in 2020. We’ve gathered a list of trendy rings that will suit your precious one!

1. The Minimalists

The trend of minimalist rings is on the rise, and it doesn’t seem like they will go anywhere soon. Its appeal is derived from its flexibility and timeless nature to suit on any occasions and in any era.

Jewellery ateliers are now often pairing striking stones with delicate, skinny bands, sometimes 1.5mm in diameter!  This classic take will direct all the focus to the diamond. Although not as popular, you may also want to consider opting for a cluster of diamonds instead of just one, big gem. Perhaps a fancy eternity band, or an endless circle of stunning diamonds.

2. The Dramatics

The direct opposite of a minimalist, the dramatics seek gems that not only take other’s breath away but also express their fun and outgoing personality. What spells fun more than a coloured gemstone? According to jewellery designer for Hollywood stars, Neil Lane, coloured gems such as aquamarine and garnet, are now in. Jenny Slate had just debuted her sapphire engagement ring, and Scarlett Johansson was seen sporting a massive light brown diamond on her engagement band.

Multi-stone bands are also rising in demand. The two stone engagement rings, also known as Toi Et Moi Rings, offers twice the glam. The ring also has an extraordinary meaning imbued: the two gems symbolising two souls have finally become one. Isn’t that so romantic?

There’s also the option of getting the three stone engagement rings. This classic diamond ring has been popping up in stores ever since the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, debuted with her cushion-cut diamond surrounded by two round ones. At Star Carat, we carry trilogy diamond ring designs.

Take your bling to the next level – you will be sporting a total of 37 diamonds on one finger altogether!

You can also opt for rings with a simpler design, like minimalistic rings, and stack them on top of each other. Not only does this give you more flexibility, but it also makes a statement that screams your style.


3. The Hopeless Romantics

For the hopeless romantic, you may want your ring to embody the magical bond that you share with your partner. You may be happy to hear that romantic cuts are rising in demand. While the pear cut raved back in 2019, oval cut stones are now rising in fad.

You may also opt for soft stones if colourful ones are not for you. Like the bold coloured ones, these soft stones are gaining the interest of many. The beautiful morganite stone with its clear, soft pink embodies a gentle but powerful love and compassion held between two people.

While it is in decline, you may also look into having a rose gold band as opposed to the standard platinum ones.


4. The Old Souls

Of course, if you’re talking about traditional rings, you can never leave diamond engagement rings from the picture. These round-cut white diamond rings have managed to retain its crown as the most popular engagement ring, and with reason too!

The solitaire rings are also a classic and timeless piece of jewellery that has been rising in popularity. This trend is particularly popular for those that can afford to purchase a big rock. Otherwise, you may include the hidden diamond halo that has been rising in fashion. While it doesn’t add a distinct shine as chunky halo does, the glimpse of sparkle from the side is enough to spark joy from within.

5. The Environmentalists

We are currently witnessing a contemporary shift to the expression of love. There has been a drop in the lust for mined diamonds, and a lot of it has to do with the redefinition of traditional customs and a greater consideration of the several different aspects in its production.

Luckily for you, there have been several ways you can go around it. One option is to seek for jewellery ateliers that use recycled metals for their fine jewellery.

Another option is to explore the idea of a lab grown diamond, an up and coming gemstone that savvy millennials and Gen Z couples are interested in.

As the name suggests, lab grown diamonds are grown in a regulated environment. The lab diamonds have the exact same chemical composition and characteristics as a mined diamond. However, they are much more cost accessible at a price tag that’s significantly lower than mined diamonds – up to 50% lesser! This means you can get your dream 1 carat diamond ring made from lab grown diamonds and save more for your wedding plans.
