Engagement rings have come a long way from the simple yet elegant designs of yesteryear. Today’s couples are discovering an assortment of styles to choose from. But while more variety is always welcome, deciding which ring style to pick can quickly become a daunting task. With this in mind, we decided to list the most popular ring designs in recent months. The following is a guide to the top engagement ring styles of 2021:
3 Stone Rings
This style of ring has made a comeback recently. It is a ring that is often known as a “Mom’s ring” for the three stones that are set on a band with two smaller stones flanking the larger one. Each stone represents a phase in a person’s life: past, present, and future. People typically use a solitaire cut for this ring, but you can get them in any cut that you wish, from emerald to teardrop. For those who want to have something just a bit more than a single stone but not have something too outlandish, this is the perfect ring for you.
A vine engagement ring features a floral solitaire style with a detailed leaf band and four-prong basket. They add some depth and drama to what could be a simple piece of jewelry. This style of ring is great for someone who has a passion for gardening. Having a permanent flower on their finger will only help increase the love they have for you and affirm how well you know them. Try to add some creativity to the design and enhance it with some colorful stones to resemble their favorite flower.
Traditional never goes out of style. A simple, round solitaire diamond on a classic gold band is a beautiful way to express your love. In the past few years, many people have opted out of this simplistic style for the more outlandish and lavish rings to show off their wealth and prominence, but this style has never truly gone out of style. Today, most brides covet this style of ring as it provides a sense of class. The simplistic nature of this style also makes it a great ring to pass down from generation to generation. It leaves open the possibility of modification should someone who receives it want to add a personal touch to it.
As the jewelry industry has grown, the popularity of different colored stones has increased and made them even more desirable than your standard diamond. To help with this, the fashion industry has worked with jewelers to create engagement ring styles using sapphires, emeralds, and rubies. There are also “chocolate” diamonds and pink diamonds. This can make a statement to all who see it and makes it one of the more popular engagement rings on the market today.
Just as the stones of an engagement ring can be full of color, so too can the bands that they rest upon. Most people think the bands must be made of either silver or gold. Today, you can purchase a beautiful ring with a white-gold band that will make it appear silver in coloring but is gold that has been discolored. For those who work in the manufacturing industry and don’t want to wear a ring where the band may easily be damaged, titanium or tungsten bands can also be outfitted. They can be colored and designed to make an exceptional ring for your loved one.
These kinds of rings have always been popular for engaged couples. Their classic looks shift the focus from some of the more modern techniques used to express individuality back to the centerpiece of the ring: the stone. The most popular vintage style features an intricate deco design or ornate metal milgrain. Depending upon the era the ring was crafted in, you can get some genuinely amazing looks. These rings have stood the test of time and will continue to do so. They are a great way to symbolize your eternal love.
