When it comes to selecting a ring that she intends to wear and cherish for the rest of her life, it can be difficult to reconcile the concepts of fashion and timelessness. Nonetheless, the popularity of engagement rings, center-stone kinds, shapes, and sizes fluctuate with time. Celebrities, financial conditions, social media, and cutting-edge technology can all have an impact on these variables. While fashion trends come and go, you can be confident that your ring style will last the test of time if you adore it. With that in mind, here are some recent diamond-shape trends to consider.
For the past few years, ovals have been the most popular cut. We reckon that social media has played a role in spreading their appeal; emulating the curve of beautifully groomed nails - ovals truly do look charming on the hand!
With their glitzy vintage look, pears have a way of being feminine, sophisticated, and dramatic. Whether in a solitaire or halo setting, their beautiful contours enhance the stone's brilliance. With pears, the length-to-width ratio can vary significantly, with the differences being more a question of personal preference than optimal brilliance. A halo setting may benefit from somewhat narrower stones, whilst a solitaire setting may benefit from a broader stone.
Emerald cuts were having a strong celebrity-driven moment shortly before Ovals took the lead in popularity. They're still popular, thanks to their ability to highlight size when compared to other forms of the same carat weight. A good emerald cut offers prismatic flashes that can be captivating, rather than the traditional shine of brilliant-cut stones. Bezel-set emerald cuts are currently thought to be the pinnacle of elegance.
In recent years, two-stone rings set with "two-of-a-kind stones" have grown in popularity. Stones set with two distinct cut diamonds, and occasionally two different colors or kinds of stones, have recently become popular for expressing a couple's narrative. These customized rings combine squarish-looking cuts (Princess, Radiant, Cushion, or Asscher) with round or curved cuts (Oval, Pear, Marquise, or Heart) to symbolize the union of two unique persons.
Finally, yet importantly, rounds have always been and will continue to be the most popular shape with the large solitaires making significant impressions on social media.
