With the New Year just around the corner, we already have our minds focused on what lies ahead. And like anything surrounding new beginnings—especially fashion—it’s out with the old and in with the new, and engagement rings trends are no exception. While there will always be the classic staples among settings and stones, we can’t deny that there are some engagement ring trends that’ll take over 2019. To find out exactly what brides-to-be are shopping for in the coming year, we asked jewelry designers Rachel Boston and Ashley Zhang for their expertise.
According to Boston, double-band engagement rings are having a major moment. “They have an instantaneous effect on making an engagement ring feel modern and a bit different,” she tells us. Zhang, on the other hand, explains that brides are opting for one-of-a-kind vintage rings as well as eternity bands. “Couples want to pick a ring that is classic but still unique to them. Many of these stones and settings are very difficult to find or reproduce so these rings feel special and romantic,” Zhang says. “Another trend we’re getting more requests for is our diamond eternity bands for an engagement ring. These rings feel substantial and classic but they are comfortable enough to wear every day and to stack with.”
