You might be wondering what the top engagement ring trends are for 2019. In this blog we highlight the top 5 styles that we predict will be most popular for this year.
Customised Engagement Rings

Though yellow gold engagement rings were once popular, during the 2000's platinum and white gold took over as the metal of choice for the majority of engagement ring customers. However, in the last couple of years we have seen a surge in demand for yellow gold. Perhaps this is linked to yellow gold becoming more popular in fashion jewellery in recent years. This isn't surprising as its warm tone is very complementary to a variety of skin tones. It also makes sense to match the metal of your engagement ring and wedding band to the metal of the jewellery you wear on a daily basis.
A Splash of Colour
Sapphire engagement rings have been always been popular throughout the years. Traditionally, sapphire engagement rings have been set in a diamond halo surround. In 2019 we definitely see colour gemstones making a comeback but set in more contemporary engagement ring designs. For instance, this simple three-stone sapphire ring pictured below has both a contemporary and timeless appeal.
Again, multi-stone engagement rings have been popular over the last century, but are seeing a comeback in 2019. Megan Markle's engagement ring is likely to be part of the reason for this. The Duchess of Sussex's engagement ring comprises of a central cushion cut diamond that Prince Harry sourced himself in Botswana, flanked by two round brilliant cut diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection. This round brilliant cut three stone diamond ring is the perfect example of a contemporary twist to a traditional style ring and is similar to the Duchess of Sussex's yellow gold engagement ring.
There is no doubt that oval cut engagement rings have become increasingly popular over the last few years. The oval shaped diamond is extremely flattering as it elongates the hands and fingers. So it's really no surprise then that celebrities such as Blake Lively and Hailey Baldwin are fans of this cut. Check out our bespoke oval cut solitaire complete with diamond band below.
