The Most Popular Engagement Ring Trends for 2020
Hello February, the month of love. To anyone celebrating this Valentine’s Day with a beautiful new ring, congratulations! As you decide on the wedding band to add to your new ring, consider these four trends.
Yellow and Rose Gold
While white gold and platinum were the main metals used in ring pairings over the past years, yellow and rose gold have been gaining popularity. Yellow and Rose gold metals not only give your ring a beautiful new look but also goes well with every skin tone. The trend of mixing yellow and rose gold in engagement rings and wedding bands is also gaining popularity this year.
Non-Traditional Wedding Band
After the engagement ring itself, selecting a wedding band is a big part of self-expression. While a simple band to pair with your engagement ring can offer a classic look, there are a few different options to give your pairing a unique look:
- Stacked rings: Stackable wedding bands have become a huge trend. Whether they are simple or act as a halo for a solitaire engagement ring, stacked rings can add quite a statement.
- Eternity bands: An eternity band has stones wrapped around the entire ring. This adds a lot of sparkle to your pairing.
- Rope bands: Rope bands can be made up of either matching metal to your engagement ring or a combination of metal and stones. The unique look of rope bands can add a different look to your ring combo.
Over the past few years, diamond alternatives for engagement rings and wedding bands have been on the rise. Experts believe that this year, diversions from the norm will continue. A few of the most common unique gemstones are ruby, sapphire, topaz, emerald, black diamond, etc. Selecting a colored gemstone will make your ring stand out in a whole new way. Many women also choose to use their birthstones to give extra meaning to their rings.
Non-Traditional Stone Shape
The solitaire style has been the original and most commonly used diamond setting since 1886. However, this new year you may see a few different cuts a bit more often. The oval cut has been gaining popularity over the past few years and this year should be no different. The long lines of an emerald-cut ring offer a more modern look. The curves of a pear-cut ring have a feminine and sophisticated look.
Whatever look you choose for your engagement ring this year, you have many choices to ensure that it’s unique, beautiful and significant to you. Marksman Diamonds can help make sure that you get the best ring for you.
