Here Are 3 Popular Engagement Ring Styles for 2022
The Halo isn’t new at all, yet this classical design is making a comeback in a big way. Having made its debut in the 1920s, Halo styled rings have done what others have not: withstood the test of time.
Halos, as the name suggests, are small diamonds that surround a larger main gemstone, framing and accentuating it—they add sparkle to the ring while giving it a larger than life appearance. Halos can border any main stone shape or cut, but princess cut, round, oval, and pear shapes are complemented best by the halo design. Halos allow for the ring to sparkle no matter what angle it is viewed from.
Three Stone Rings
The three-stone ring style comes in a variety of options as unique as the individual who will wear it. Traditionally, the ring features a central stone that is flanked by one or two stones on either side of it. These stones can differ in size, type of gem, color, shape, and more, making the three stone design a very customizable option that allows for a mix of gemstones and colors.
Three stone rings often have a princess cut diamond as the center stone. Rubies, sapphires, emeralds and other colored gemstones are popular choices for the flank stones and gives the engagement ring a pop of color. Three stone rings are currently “in”, popularized in media with even Prince Harry having proposed to Meghan Markle using a ring mounted with three sparkling diamonds.
Unlike the traditional yellow gold or silver bands with a main diamond center stone, eternity bands take a unique approach that has caught the eyes and hearts of couples in 2022. Eternity bands come in a variety of designs, with some of the most popular being an entire band lined with small diamonds that can be in different shapes. These are good options for women (or men) who want a ring that doesn't lay heavy on the finger or individuals can't wear a large diamond at work. A statement band is non-traditional and is totally customizable and there are diamond alternatives.
