The Top 5 Engagement Ring Trends You’ll be Seeing in 2019
As we wrap up 2018 and enter into the new year, we find ourselves in a pleasant, yet slightly stressful, season of life - engagement season. With every new year comes new trends and styles. Just like we see changes in fashion and decor, engagement rings are continuously evolving. Trust us, we know picking out an engagement ring in St. Louis is no easy feat. Should the diamond be round or square? White, Yellow, or Rose gold? There are so many aspects to take into consideration when picking out the perfect ring but luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place. The Diamond Family has been a trusted family jeweler in St. Louis since 1978, and has an incredible selection for every taste and budget.
In 2018, brides-to-be were looking to put a unique twist on the classic ring, with colorful stones and non-traditional diamond shapes seeing a spike in popularity. Pinterest’s annual wedding report highlighted that classic engagement rings, art deco, and oval stones experienced high search volumes when compared to other ring styles. After getting engaged to Justin Bieber in the summer of 2018, Hailey Baldwin proudly flaunted her stunning oval-shaped ring.
With 2018 being such a unique year for engagement rings, we expect similar styles to continue to rise in popularity in the new year. Here are the top 5 engagement rings trends you should expect to see in 2019:
Color is becoming increasingly popular for brides looking for a unique engagement ring that truly represents their personality and offers a unique twist to the engagement ring. The Diamond Family has a large selection of colored diamonds in St. Louis. While white diamonds are still a classic staple, many brides enjoy the pop of color these gemstones add as it helps to set their rings apart.
“2019 will be the year of the pear stone,” says jewelry designer Jade Trau. The pear-shaped diamond really grew in popularity after Ariana Grande was seen wearing a custom-made Greg Yuna engagement ring. But Grande isn’t the only celebrity in Hollywood seen wearing this beautiful cut - Cardi B, Paris Hilton, and Sophie Turner were all seen wearing the same style.
When looking at halo settings, most brides believe a round cut stone is the only style they can pair with this setting. But halo settings are actually extremely versatile and come in all shapes and sizes. Want to know another secret? It makes the center stone appear larger and boosts the overall sparkle of the diamond. That sounds like a win in our books!
With more and more brides preferring non-traditional ring styles, it’s no question that east-west settings will make a stride in 2019. This style is the perfect way for you to put a unique spin on your ring while still giving it that classic feel. Catherine Zeta Jones and Portia De Rossi have been seen rocking this style for decades.
Yellow Gold Bands
Back in the 1960s-80s, yellow-gold was the standard for wedding bands and in recent years has seen a rise in popularity. This style helps to give your ring a warmer tone and it’s also the easiest of all three golds to maintain. But rest assured, if a bride finds herself doubting the band color, it can easily be swapped out with another metal.
