The biggest engagement ring trends for 2019

From alternative gemstones to unique settings, here are the styles you'll be seeing everywhere this year.

Last updated:

Choosing an engagement ring can be quite a difficult process. After all, it’s a piece of jewellery that many people commit to wearing for the rest of their lives. With so many designs on the market, though, how do you ensure that you’ll love the one you pick for that long?

Often the best way to find designs you love (and weed out the ones you don’t) is to take a really good look at what’s available. To help you out, we’ve rounded up the top current and upcoming trends for you to browse so you can find your perfect ring sooner.


1. Art deco inspired

Non-traditional rings are shaping up to be the biggest engagement ring trend of the year. Many brides-to-be are choosing to stray from the typical diamond-on-band silhouette and picking something that lends a sense of individuality instead.

Art deco rings, like the movement, blend together different elements such as geometric shapes and bright colours. They offer a beautiful, vintage feel and are the perfect pick if you’re after something eye-catching and a little left of centre.

2. Coloured stones

While the diamond ring definitely hasn’t gone anywhere, colourful stone rings have recently seen a huge increase in popularity. Sapphires and rubies have begun to pop up everywhere, adding a splash of colour and individuality to the traditional engagement ring.

Some rings are featuring the coloured stone as the centrepiece, while others are adding unique quality by decorating the halo around a central diamond with them instead. Coloured stones are also being commonly paired with the art deco trend, coupling stones such as emeralds with non-traditional style rings.

3. Pear cut

From Emily Ratajkowski to Sophie Turner, everyone seems to be rocking a pear-shaped engagement ring at the moment. The cut offers a sense of uniqueness, without straying too far from traditional engagement ring styles.

You can opt for something elegant and classic such as a single pear solitaire or step it up a notch by choosing a pear-cut stone with a halo for added impact.

4. Rose gold

As one of the most coveted colours in fashion over the past couple of years, rose gold has now become a popular choice for engagement rings too.

While white gold and platinum are still hot commodities, rose gold and yellow gold are now being seen as the trendier option.

5. Trilogy stones

Three-stone engagement rings have seen a huge surge in popularity since the engagement of Meghan Markle to Prince Harry. The three stones of a trilogy ring are said to represent a couple’s past, present and future, making it the perfect choice if you’re a romantic at heart.

There has been a slight update to the trilogy ring trend recently, though. An increasing amount of couples are now opting for unique gemstones or different stone cuts in place of the usual round cut diamonds.

Shop the trend:


6. Distinctive halos

Given the vintage ring trends we’re seeing, it’s little surprise that the halo-style setting is rising in popularity too. Rather than just opting for a halo setting around a standard round diamond though, many couples are opting to place one around pear-, square- or oval-shaped stones too.

The biggest advantage of halo rings is that they allow you a bigger ring on a smaller budget. Thanks to the collection of pavé or micro-pavé stones surrounding it, the main stone can look up to as much as half a carat larger than it actually is.

Shop the trend:


7. Solitaire with a twist

The solitaire ring is possibly the most classic style around. Where it used to mean a ring with a single diamond, though, the romantic silhouette has now been given a modern upgrade.

Many brides-to-be are now opting for rings with micro-pavé diamonds in the band. The addition doesn’t take away from the main diamond (or stone of choice), but instead lends the style a sense of timeless elegance and added sparkle.

Shop the trend:


8. Custom made

With the common trend of the year being to pick something unconventional, it makes sense that many couples are now choosing to have their ring custom made. Getting a custom-made ring affords you complete design control, from the colour and cut of the stone to the colour of the band and, of course, the perfect sizing.

If you’ve really got your heart set on a one-of-a-kind ring, consider going with a custom make.
