Top engagement ring trends in 2020 by Taylor & Hart

November 18, 2020

Love is in the air. That’s right! Engagement season is upon us, pandemic or not. Today, we’ve teamed up with Taylor & Hart, who creates heartfelt custom engagement and wedding rings that capture your story, to provide some of their top engagement ring trends.

Engagement ring trends

Trend #1:  Lab-grown Diamonds

Couples are much more open to lab-grown diamonds and see it as the more affordable alternative to earth-grown ones. Engineered diamonds may not be perfectly sustainable as they require a huge amount of energy to be created, but still, they free your conscience from the burden of conflict mining which often goes undetected.

Trend # 2 Colored gemstones

From yellow diamonds to purple sapphires, people are starting to appreciate the chance to express themselves more boldly with colored gemstones.

Trend #3: Oval cut gemstones

This stone shape has replaced cushion cut from the second position, round always being the top choice. Fancy cuts like oval, pear and marquise make the fingers appear longer.

Trend #4: Trilogy

One of our personal favorite trends, the Trilogy diamond design with baguettes.

Trend #5: Underhalos

When you look at the side profile of a ring with a hidden halo, you’ll see a row of pavé set diamonds holding the rim of the setting. This is a great way to customize your ring and make it look larger.

Trend #6: Yellow gold

A classic choice that both sexes seem to love. This might be sparked by the ‘Meghan Markle effect’ of 2018 when her yellow gold trilogy engagement ring increased the popularity of the warm-toned metal.

Trend #7: Narrow plain or pavé diamond bands

Clean, delicate design for more of a subtle appearance.
