The perfect ring for you is a great way to mark the start of the exciting journey to come with your partner, and you want to make sure you choose a ring you will want to show off for the rest of your life. That's why we have put together the newest ring trends, so you know where to start when you go shopping for THE engagement rings for you.
Ethically Sourced Diamonds
While a beautiful ring to signify the love and union between you and your partner is a source of great happiness, of course, no one would want that at the cost of another's. This value is certainly beginning to show, with the ethicality and sustainability of the stones becoming a significant determiner in whether or not people buy the ring.
Colour is the Way To Go
According to a survey conducted by Wedded Wonderland in 2019, Aussies spent a median of 11,753 Australian dollars on their engagement rings - that is quite a big chunk of money. Couples don't hold back when investing in a ring that stands out from others, and what better way to do that than steer away from the traditional white diamond in favour of coloured stones instead! With many options and shade variations - even the same kind of stones can differ in hues - coloured stones like blue sapphire, emerald, and ruby, amongst other kinds of stones to choose from - it is easy to choose one that best resonates with you.
Since different stones carry different meanings and symbolise different qualities, you can also choose to pick a stone to feature in your ring based on the meaning it holds. For example, one of the meanings behind a blue sapphire is truth and innocence, while a red ruby, befitting its captivating red hue, symbolises energy, love, and passion.
The Trend For Chunky Jewellery Fans
If you love your chunky jewellery, there is no reason your taste cannot manifest in your ring. The Gypsy setting, which was first popularised in the Late Victorian Era, makes a strong comeback with its bold and modern style and winning hearts. This ring style features stones that are deep-set or engraved into the ring's metal body so that the metal encases them from all sides except the top. You can think of the stones in a Gypsy ring similar to chocolate buttons when they are pressed down into unbaked cookie dough, but of course, a whole lot chicer. Aside from how modern they look, the Gypsy ring is also very wearable since the stone is set much more securely within the band than in other styles. Overall, a great choice for those who love to steer away from the traditional.
This elegant and delicate-looking shape of diamonds, also known as the teardrop cut, is gaining popularity this year! With the choice to position the tip of the stone either facing upwards or downwards, combined with the design of the band of the ring, this shape of diamond has the potential to create a design that exudes a range of moods, and you are sure to find one you fall in love with.
Now, just enjoy keeping an eye out for these trends when you go shopping for your ring with your partner and draw some eyes to your new ring with your choice!
