White gold has been dominating the market for quite a few years now. While you can still find yellow and rose gold without a problem, there’s no denying that white gold has been the popular choice.
However, this is predicted to change in 2019. Many couples are going to be opting for yellow gold to bring another traditional element back into their rings.
Of course, no one trend can sweep the engagement ring market overnight. White gold will still be a popular choice.
If you can’t choose between the two, consider opting for a two-toned ring. This is predicted to be another big trend in 2019 with couples opting to mix white gold with either rose gold or yellow gold.
Many come in braided, stacked, or woven styles to perfectly interconnect the two metals.
Why settle for just one diamond when you can get three? If you want to add a little extra bling to her ring but aren’t a fan of halos, this trend is for you.
The center diamond is surrounded by two slightly-smaller diamonds on each side. It makes for a simple, modern, and luxurious ring all in one.
Who says an engagement ring has to contain a diamond? Not only are diamonds a very expensive choice, but they’re the traditional choice, too.
This means that couples on the lookout for affordable or unique options are flocking to colored stones. Rubies, emeralds, and sapphires join diamonds as the four most precious stones. They all come in vibrant hues and are very durable, making them great options for engagement rings.
Blue, in particular, is predicted to be trending in 2019. If you aren’t a fan of sapphire, look into aquamarine and topaz as alternatives. Of course, you can also opt for a colored diamond if you want to mix unique colors into a traditional diamond ring.
Colored Accent Stones
What can you do if you want to add some color, but don’t want to give up that traditional white diamond? Well, many couples have asked that same question.
This is why colored accent stones are predicted to be trending in 2019. It’s the perfect way to highlight the clear brilliance of the center diamond and add a stone or color that’s meaningful to you as a couple.
It’s no secret that halos have been a huge trend of 2018. This trend is going to continue into 2019 with a twist.
Halos are most commonly found mimicking the classic diamond shapes, such as circle and cushion. But in the upcoming year, they’ll be in more creative and detailed shapes.
Look out for floral-inspired halos and geometric halos, like hexagons. These give the ring a distinctive appearance that’s perfect for those looking to add a unique touch to the traditional diamond ring.
Thin Diamond Bands
There have been a lot of thin diamond bands in stores recently. And it’s no wonder why! These bands add extra sparkle and shine to a ring without detracting from the center diamond.
That’s why this trend is expected to continue into 2019 and beyond.
Pear and Oval Diamonds
Princess cut diamonds have been all the rage for the past few years. However, in 2019, its pear and oval diamonds that are expected to take center stage.
Almost 57% of all diamonds sold nationwide are round. This shape has stayed strong for years, even through the huge princess cut trend.
Pear and oval diamonds are amazing options because they have a similar feel and sparkle to round diamonds, but the elongated or tapered shape helps them stand out.
At some point in your life, you’re sure to have heard someone say, “it’s all in the details.” This is true when it comes to decorating your home and planning your wedding, as well as picking out the perfect engagement ring.
