Engagement rings trends to look out for in 2022

Ramsdens

With the end of the year approaching, you might be looking forward to the jewellery trends of the future — particularly if you're planning something big, like a proposal.

Engagement rings are one of the most significant pieces of jewellery you will ever buy, so it's important you make your decision confidently. If you're not sure where to start, it's a good idea to look to trends. That way, you know that the ring you choose will be current and your partner will be excited to show it off once you pop the question.

We've looked at jewellery trends from the Spring/Summer catwalks to determine what engagement rings will look like in 2022. Read on to find your perfect match.

Eternity rings

Unlike most engagement rings, eternity rings have stones dotted all along the band as opposed to a feature setting. They are traditionally given at a significant point in a marriage — usually an anniversary, or another important life event. However, eternity-style engagement rings are set to be huge for 2022, as people choose more understated and gender-neutral looks for their proposal jewellery.

Pear-shaped diamonds

The pear has been one of the most definitive diamond shapes of the past few years, with celebrities like Cardi B, Ariana Grande, and Paris Hilton all wearing engagement rings that feature pear-shaped diamonds. And, this trend is unlikely to go away in 2022. Pear diamonds are usually worn with the tip pointing up the finger, and they look great on their own in a solitaire setting, flanked by side-stones, or surrounded by a halo of diamonds.

Solitaire settings

The solitaire setting is a classic diamond ring style, and while it never really goes out of fashion, it's due to spike in popularity in 2022. Minimalism is set to be a big trend in jewellery, with quality taking precedence over quantity or size, and with a solitaire setting you can focus all your attention on getting the best possible diamond for your money. Our diamond buying guide can tell you more about picking the perfect diamond for your engagement ring.

Recycled Diamonds

Preloved diamonds which are recycled into new modern styles are very popular due to the sustainability movement and are set to be trending in 2022. At Ramsdens Jewellery, we have a range of Anya Belle diamond jewellery which features handpicked and carefully selected recycled diamonds, meticulously graded to ensure quality throughout each piece. In a world of throwaway fashion this range of carefully selected jewellery is a breath of fresh air; economically reviving the old styles into something up to date and modern.

These are some key trends to look out for in 2022 if you're shopping for an engagement ring. Looking at trends can be a great way to determine what style to go for, but remember to take your partners taste into consideration too. Read our guide to buying an engagement ring, and along with these trends, you're sure to find the perfect piece in no time.
