With engagement ring trends everchanging, how do you decide on a design that will stand the test of time? If you ask the diamond experts at Diamonds and Design in Vineland, NJ, it’s less about following the trend and more about following your own unique sense of style. You want to find a ring that feels good the moment it goes on your finger–and when you purchase a ring from Diamonds and Design with Xspero™ Dollars , you’ll also feel good about 20% going directly to a charity you choose!

That said, here are five engagement ring trends to consider when shopping around for the ring that suits you best.  

Pear-Shaped Stones

The pear shape diamond has long been a symbol of refinement and elegance–and after a brief retirement, it’s back and better than ever. It’s a flattering, feminine shape that’s been slowly making a comeback–and we have a feeling it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

Mixing Metals

Among the many engagement ring trends we’re seeing spring up in 2019, we personally love the use of mixed metals. Accenting a setting on a platinum band with yellow or rose gold, for example, will draw attention to the center stone and add an element of intrigue that may be lacking in a one-tone ring.

Colored Accents and Stones

More and more, we’re seeing brides incorporate color in their engagement rings. Be it a rose gold band or canary diamond, things are finally starting to warm up from the whiteout trend of icy diamonds and platinum rings. We’re also seeing more diamond engagement rings with colored accent stones such as rubies and sapphires.

Yellow Gold

It’s ba-ack! Yellow gold is making a splash once again on the fingers of brides-to-be. But this time around, it doesn’t feel retro or passé. This new incarnation of yellow gold feels fresh in sleek silhouettes and minimalist bands.

Minimalism

Speaking of minimalism, an over-arching trend that spans all of the above is a move towards minimalism. Bands are skinnier, prongs are smaller, and design is limited to emphasize the stone and setting. It’s about saying more with less.
