Engagement and wedding rings are arguably the most important pieces of jewellery you’ll ever purchase or receive in your life. These are rings that are meant to be worn forever. That’s why picking out the perfect rings is so important. And knowing the bridal jewellery trends for 2020 can help point you in the right direction.
Learning the variety of styles designers are making right now is useful, especially if you discover new trends that fit with your style. Every bride is unique. You may want a classic style, but find one with a new twist. Or you could go in a completely different direction. There are no rules! But here’s some bridal jewellery trends to help guide you along.
Engagement Ring Trends
One of the classic styles that is returning in 2020 is the simple solitaire engagement ring. A simple solitaire means just one stone on the band, with no halos or embellishments. This is especially popular with couples who can afford a large stone, because it gives that diamond a chance to shine.
Another way to make a solitaire stand out even if you can’t afford a J.Lo-sized diamond is to get a fancy-shape cut. Asscher-cut diamonds are making a comeback. Pear, oval, and marquise shape diamonds are also skyrocketing in popularity.
If you can’t buy a large diamond, the halo trend can also help make your stone stand out. A halo is a ring of diamonds surrounding the center stone, which helps give the appearance of a larger diamond. Some use the halo to form different designs, like singer Katy Perry’s flower-shaped engagement ring.
A trend from recent years that is clearly here to stay is the use of rose gold. The pinkish hue is romantic, and fun. Many brides are forgoing traditional metals for rose gold engagement rings.
Wedding Band Trends
The rose gold trend is also being used in wedding bands. Some brides are choosing to make their whole bridal jewellery set rose gold, while others are mixing metals—another trend that has risen in popularity.
Stackable rings is a trend that many brides are using with the mixed metal trend, while others are wearing stacked rings made of all the same metal. Some brides choose the stacked ring trend to create symmetry in their wedding set, with two bands enclosing their engagement ring in the middle. Others end up stacking additional rings that are given to them to commemorate an anniversary or the birth of a child.
A more classic trend when it comes to wedding sets is the curved wedding band. These are made to fit snugly with an engagement ring to give the appearance of one ring on a bride’s hand. They can be just metal or have diamonds of their own.
Some brides choose to go with a singular eternity band of diamonds, representing never-ending love. More and more women are picking delicate eternity bands, embracing the minimalist trend of recent years.
No matter what style you want to go with, talking to your partner ahead of time is a good idea if possible, because you can often get better value when you buy the full set of bridal jewelry together. Diamonds and gems can come at a reduced price per carat if you buy more than one at once, and bridal sets are always a good value.
