With the holidays nearing quickly, engagement season will be upon us soon! Have you started dropping hints to your beau yet about your favorite ring styles? While it is fun to save a bunch of rings to your Pinterest pages and look through styles online, it is important to try them on in person as well. You might think you love something that looks completely different on your finger. Everyone’s fingers are different and trying on rings is just like trying on clothes or shoes, except you’ll be wearing this accessory for the rest of your life! 

Here are some of our favorite engagement ring trends for this season to help narrow your search and guide your soon-to-be fiance!

Classic & Traditional

You can’t go wrong with a classic solitaire diamond setting. It’s simple, timeless, and will always be in style. Round or princess-cut stones have been around for centuries and there’s a reason they stand the test of time. You can also add some flair with a pave band or smaller side stones around your center diamond. 


Antique-style engagement rings come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The style offers a feeling of nostalgia and romance you may not find in other ring designs. Many vintage-style rings boast flora or foliage designs around the center stone either with additional stones or in the metal on the band. While others can have geometric patterns and use contrasting gemstones. If you are a hopeless romantic, a vintage-style ring will make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale.

Unique shapes 

Your ring should be as unique as you are as a couple so why not try something a little different. Many brides are opting for different shaped stones like pear, heart, and marquise. These different designs have increased in popularity as brides choose to be more daring in their diamond selections. Don’t be afraid to try on some unique shapes and see how they look on your finger!

Alternate gemstones and metals 

Another trend we see this year is different gemstones like sapphire, emerald and ruby just to name a few favorites. If you tend to like a little more color in your jewelry you could opt for one of these other stones rather than a diamond. You can also try to mix your metals, don’t be afraid to see what gold looks like with platinum or silver. Yellow and rose gold have continued to soar in popularity over the last few years. Rose gold gives a more feminine and warm tone while yellow gold gives a traditional look, either can pair well with one another or with platinum.
