But let’s be honest: engagement ring shopping can be intimidating! if you have no idea where to start when it comes to ring shopping, don’t worry. Understanding the trends in today’s market is a good place to begin. With that in mind, keep reading to discover the biggest trends in engagement rings for fall 2019 and as we move into the holiday season.

 

MIXED STONES

Gemstones and birthstones add a unique touch to any engagement ring. Many brides in 2019 are choosing to incorporate their birthstone into their wedding jewelry. For example, a bride born in May might want to have an emerald stone instead of a diamond. It’s a great way to express your creativity: include gemstones as the main stone, on the band, or both. Because there are so many different gems to choose from, you don’t have to feel stuck with one option. This trend is a unique alternative to standard engagement ring design and is good for a bride who doesn’t mind being a little different than the rest.

NON-TRADITIONAL CUTS

The princess cut remains the iconic type of engagement ring, but there’s been an influx of interest in other shapes and designs in 2019. Oval cuts have been especially popular. The oval shape is a classic and timeless option, perfect for anyone who loves more of a vintage style. You can also consider combining different cuts together as well in a custom-designed ring. Don’t feel confined to single stone options, either: three-stone settings can offer a beautiful, but simple, alternative.

HALO SETTINGS

The final trendiest option in engagement rings to close out 2019 is the halo setting. Halo settings enclose the main stone with diamonds or other gemstones. If you want to add some extra glamour to your engagement ring, consider getting a ring with a halo setting. The contrast between diamonds and other gemstones, for example, could be beautifully accentuated with a halo setting around the main stone.
