A lot of time and effort is taken to make the perfect engagement, the location, how to do it and obviously the ring. Picking the perfect engagement ring is not easy and it can take a long time before finding the right one. But how do you know what the “right one” looks like? what shape and colour? Well, in this article we will go through some trends for engagement rings in 2021 to help you find that perfect ring.
Vintage Engagement Rings:
2020 brought the lockdown and with it came a lot of reminiscence from previous years where we could be doing things throughout the seasons. Engagement ring trends are doing this also as a growing trend is for vintage engagement rings. Vintage engagement rings are becoming popular from the Edwardian era, Art Deco and mid-century modern. With vintage being a trend in fashion, so comes the engagement rings with their timeless styles. Sophistication and elegance are key features of vintage jewellery and its colours and settings being some of the details which will be increasing in popularity this year.
Sustainable & Ethical Diamonds:
There has been an increase in popularity with sustainability in all aspects of business and life. Whether this is the production, materials used or even the amount of waste pollution, people are now being a lot more conscious in the way they purchase products. Everyone knows that the diamond industry has not had the best history and it still doesn’t really due to the unsustainable mining and bad labour regulations for the workers. With modern technology, it is now possible to create diamonds from a lab. So it’s no surprise that there are many people now looking for sustainable engagement rings, whether this being something vintage or maybe even a lab-grown diamond. Either way, sustainable and ethical jewellery are a huge trend to be following in 2021.
With people having more time on their hands, it has been clear that many have been taking that extra bit of time on deciding a ring. Adding personal touches to a ring has been a huge rise in trends with people wanting more detail around the gallery. This is the part of the ring that you can see on a side view that holds the main stone. This is a great way to add some personality into a ring and is a nice way to show that special someone how much you love and know them. People can add what they want, whether it is just a simple diamond pattern, a love heart or something completely unique. This could be looking at a long trend so keep your eyes peeled for these.
There are so many different types of engagement rings to choose from so it can be difficult in finding the right one. If you are wanting to find something that will be in style for a long time then follow some of these trends. However, getting married isn’t all about the trendiest ring or the biggest wedding but the love that you both share, so if these trends aren’t for you, then go with your heart.
