Are you buying an engagement ring in 2021? Until now, you might have opted for a yellow-gold ring, but today, there are many more engagement ring trends to consider. However, one thing has not changed: diamonds are still the most popular gemstone.

      Find your trendy engagement ring at BAUNAT.

      Diamond cuts in 2021

      In 2021, we are seeing a lot of original diamond cuts in the engagement ring trends. For example, the classic brilliant is making space for engagement rings with an oval-shaped diamond. Because of its special cut, the oval diamond seems larger, as it has a larger surface than a brilliant diamond of the same carat. So an oval diamond of 1 carat looks about 10% bigger than a round one of the same carat weight

      Stay on trend with a unique pear-shaped diamond engagement ring.
      Additionally, pear-shaped diamonds are also making a comeback among the engagement ring trends. The elegant and unique pear-shaped diamond is popular for various types of jewellery. In a diamond pendant, the neck is accentuated thanks to the length of the pear-shaped form. In a ring, pear-shaped diamonds make the hand look slimmer by pointing to the end of the fingers. Few diamond jewellery pieces have a stone with a pear shape, making them unique and original. Moreover, a pear-shaped diamond has an elegant and royal appearance.

      Gemstones and birthstones

      When choosing an engagement ring, diamonds are no longer the most popular option. Gemstones and birthstones are on the rise in terms of engagement ring trends. Choose a gemstone that suits your future spouse’s character: for example, a sapphire, emerald or ruby. These rare and unique gemstones give your engagement ring a special look and are sure to be the centre of attention.

      Birthstones can be precious stones, as well as more ordinary coloured stones. Each stone is associated with a particular month. An engagement ring with a birthstone is an original and unique gesture to your loved one.

      Rose-gold engagement rings are on trend this year.

      Rose gold engagement ring trends

      Rose gold is an alloy of fine 24-carat gold combined with copper and silver. The metal has a pink appearance and is a slightly different colour than red gold. Today, it is impossible to imagine life without rose gold as a trendy colour. More and more people are choosing a rose gold smartphone or smartwatch, and this tint is also often found in clothing and household decorations. 
      The rose-gold engagement ring trend is perfect when paired with a traditional solitaire diamond.
      The warm shade of rose gold makes it ideal for every type of person. The classic rose gold solitaire ring, for example, is perfect for a bride with a rather minimalist style. The rose gold reflects a certain sombreness but also gives off a warm glow in contrast to the central diamond. People who prefer more eye-catching jewellery tend to go for other settings; rose gold rings with a vintage touch, perhaps? The romantic hue of rose gold combined with subtle milgrain details is a perfect example.
      Choose a vintage yellow gold diamond engagement ring to stay on trend in 2021.

      Vintage

      The trend of vintage engagement rings has been on the rise for about 30 years now. A vintage engagement ring is almost always yellow gold or red gold, while many modern rings are white gold or platinum. Also, a vintage engagement ring is more likely to contain a coloured gemstone than a diamond. If you want to be a bit more extravagant, opt for a red gold ring with a green emerald. Unique, stylish and a true dream for vintage lovers.

      Not only are vintage engagement rings very popular, rings with subtle references to flowers are also on the rise. These hints can be found in details like coloured stones or a halo setting that resembles the crown of a flower.

      If you can't find what you are looking for, choose a customised engagement ring.

      The engagement ring trend for one with personal meaning

      Choosing from all the possible engagement rings can be quite the challenge. As you already know, you should choose a ring that complements your style. But also, the symbolic value of the ring can help you make your choice. For example, the eternity ring represents eternal love and loyalty with diamonds all around.

      The trilogy ring symbolises your past, present and future in three sparkling diamonds. Again, it is still very important that the ring fits your taste perfectly. Of course, you can also add a personal touch by engraving a romantic message on the inside of the engagement ring.

      Have your engagement ring engraved for a personal touch.

      How do I choose engagement ring trends that stand the test of time?

      Opting for trendy diamond engagement rings can sometimes result in a dated piece of jewellery. Although diamonds stand the test of time very well and almost always age gracefully, you should make sure you do follow trends too closely. It is more important to choose something that you truly love and that suits your style. That way, after the engagement, you can combine rings and other jewellery with your engagement ring in a finished and timeless look.
