We take a look at the top engagement trends you'll be seeing this year. From stones to settings, these are the styles everyone will be wearing.
1. COLORED GEMSTONES
Since the beginning of 2020, colored gemstones have become increasingly more popular. What first began as a fun pop of color in a cocktail ring or pair of earrings is now a full on engagement ring trend. Now that lab-grown gemstones have become more accessible, we definitely see this trend continuing on into 2022.
2. CHUNKY BANDS
It seems that thick and chunky bands are making a comeback with no gender-bias. From wide wedding bands as engagement rings to bold metal-heavy solitaires, rings that take up real-estate are here to stay.
3. POSTMODERN INFLUENCE
Postmodern is the latest style of architecture influenced by a variety of different time periods. The mix of classic and modern elements creates a fresh new look that has recently emerged in jewelry. Since this style of architecture is still fairly new, we expect that it will continue to influence jewelry in 2022 and beyond.
4. CULTIVATED DIAMONDS
In 2020, cultivated diamonds were rapidly gaining popularity when shoppers realized they were able to get larger stones at a higher clarity and color for their budget. In 2022, customers will not only be purchasing cultivated diamonds to be budget-conscious, but also because they are a more sustainable and ethical option. Additionally, a wider variety of unique shapes are offered in cultivated.
