Many women don’t want the ring they will be wearing for the rest of their lives to be considered fashionable. This term, after all, means that it’s trending, it has an expiration date, and its duration is limited. Your engagement ring and especially your wedding ring needs to be something you will love as much as 40 years from today, which explains why classic cuts and detailed rings are still trending.
1. Delicate silhouettes
In recent years, we have seen a return to classic style as brides opt for thin, small bands, both in engagement as well as wedding rings. These rings incorporate accent diamonds that add slight shimmer and make the middle gemstone really stand out.
2. Unique vintage rings
These rings are loved by women looking for a special jewelry that tells their story or simply a story. In the previous years, ladies were really drawn to diamond rings from the Edwardian generation, but these days they are drawn to a wide swath of styles.
3. Distinctive halo styles
These designs, featuring cushion shaped diamonds and traditional round, have been a huge trend for many years, maybe because of their romantic feel or due to the way the halo make the center appear bigger.
4. Scalloped pave accents
When it comes to accent diamond along the ring’s band, today’s bride lean toward French or scalloped pave diamonds. This design minimizes clear precious metal, producing an impact of pure shimmer.
5. Colored gemstones
Although diamonds remain the number one sought after metal, we see an increasing number of ladies opting for colored gemstones as a way to show their individuality and style. These women are going for sapphires both in less common shades of peach, green, teal, pink, and yellow and traditional deep blue.
6. Nature-inspired designs
Ring designs that evoke leaves, buds, and vines using wispy, natural designs remain trendy, especially with ladies who love nature.

The romance and warmth of rose gold make this design a very sought after precious metal for the engagement ring. It is a perfect choice for vintage design but also look great in a modern style.
8. Baguette accents
With their step facets and rectangular shape, baguette accent diamonds have a stunning beauty that offers rings a customary beautiful look. For many years, shimmering pave accent diamonds had surpassed baguettes as the number one accent precious metal choice, but today baguette is growing in popularity.
9. Twisting and woven silhouettes
The majority of today’s women are drawn to engagement and wedding ring bands featuring interchanging strands of diamonds and metal. These rings symbolize both intertwining fates and infinite love, making them a quite romantic option.
10. Non-traditional designs
