I think fancy cut Diamonds and gemstone e rings are on trend right now.  Definetly pave and halos, and rose gold.  I love it all lol, I wish I could have one of each ☺️.  Also, I know ring stacks have been around forever but I see a lot of them now and until a few years ago I hardly saw any.

 

eta I will add though, most of this is what I see on social media.  In person I still mostly see the same few rings, over and over again.

Colored gold (yellow and rose) is coming back in, but white gold is more popular than platinum right now, I feel. I still see round stones in cushion halos or classic round solitaires most often, usually in white gold. More unique settings are coming in too, like bezel set centers with pave bands, emerald or asscher cuts with halos, 4 prong round and oval centers (as opposed to the traditional 6 prong), and blue sapphires as centers/accents. 

Basically, pave bands, rose gold, and a unique center stone shape/setting is what’s in!

I’m glad to hear that yellow gold might be making a come back. I’ve always only worn yellow gold but no one around me does. I think rose gold is definately making a comeback as well.

FauxPas2012 :  I’m mid 20s and have an oval solitare in yellow gold and I LOVE it. I was very specific when I told my fiance what I wanted (haha) because I did NOT want what is trendy. All of my friends that are engaged have the exact same ring…round diamond cushion halo.

I feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of double halos lately.

I would say roung solitaire on a plain band paired with a pave or shareed prong diamond wedding band. EVERYONE seems to have that as their wedding set.

I think gemstone rings are trending and also settings that have a “hidden halo” or diamonds around the basket are becoming more popular too!

FauxPas2012 :  In my circle, solitaires (mostly round) on a plain band.  My friends who got married within the last 5 years all have white gold/platinum, but all the recent ones have rose gold (one with yellow gold).

I think that round center stones are the standard so they will always be in fashion. I think some people like that “classic” style of rounds, but I think other people feel it’s too common and not unique enough. 

I do think that ovals and emerald cuts are both very popular right now. But they are also very classy.

I think that solitairs are also “classic” so they never really go out of style. But again, some people might find them too plain? 

In real life I see a lot of cushions and rounds. And I pretty much only see halos! It’s rare to see a ring without a halo at this point – but several of those women are a little older than me and have been married for 5+ years. So that might be a dated trend by now? 

I do not see any yellow or rose gold IRL – I only see that as a trend online. 

I have one friend with an east west ring and I love it!! And I knew a few people with either rose cuts or old mine cuts, as well one friend with a deco style ring. It’s nice to see the vintage styles too. 

I know that pears are a shape people seem to either love or hate. I was never super into pears, but recently I’ve seen 3 pear rings that were really stunning! 

I have a 3 stone ring. I know one other girl my age with one. Otherwise they seem to be pretty rare. I also have a full bezel around by center stone and I only know one other person who has that. But bezels seem to decrease the sparkle (the rim covers up some of the facets on the edge so less light refracts) so I think that’s why so many people choose other settings.

skylar84 :  I also have a three stone, and don’t see a whole lot of them in my age group, either (early/mid 20’s). I see a lot of halos. I do see older women with three stones, though. I also have bezel, and rarely see those, either. I chose it for practicality with small children, not necessarily love of the style. Will you share a photo of your ring? I’m not sure that I’ve seen it.

i think cushion halos are the most popular right now… i was recently in a few jewelery stores and aside from RB solitaires, it seemed like the majority of rings that were displayed front and center were cushion cut halos. 

and colored stone accents seem to be much more popular now too.

MrsAL2012 :  You have a 3 stone AND a bezel? I’ve never seen anyone else with that combination! Please let me see your ring too!

I can’t seem to take good ring pics, but here’s my ring:

I think rose gold is definitely trending right now, along with halos. Ovals are trending as well. Especially on a dainty band.

Put it all together to get an oval (or round) rose gold halo and I think that’s pretty on point w/ current trends.

lavenderstone :  What I was going to say exactly!

Most of the people I know who have gotten engaged in the last year have a simple band with a high quality solitaire. A lot of rounds and emerald cuts in particular.

The one thing that will always be on trend? A well cut beautiful stone. Regardless of metal, shape or setting style. Recently I saw a marquis solitaire and while I’m not typically a marquise fan (although the I had one with my first engagement) I was in awe with the diamond regardless. It was stunning!  A well cut diamond is always going to be beautiful. But…the safe bet is always a round and the biggest setting trend is a pave or shared prong setting it seems. Haloes or not. Thinner bands seem to be everywhere.  Rose gold getting big and platinum/white gold I don’t think will ever go away.
