2022 was the year to get married or engaged, with tons of rings popping up on Instagram. With covid a conversation of the past lots of romantic proposals and luxury weddings made it through in 2022. And how great to see! To wrap up the year we are listing the top engagement ring trends of 2022. Some of these trends are here to stay and others may be left in this year where they belong!
Two stone engagement rings have been a trend in the past and are back again with a vengeance. Almost 70 years ago the two-stone engagement ring was flashed by First Lady Jackie Kennedy, featuring an emerald cut emerald and an emerald cut diamond. However, this last year has proved that two stone engagement rings are back to stay and are the top engagement ring trends of 2022 . Double the diamond, diamond the love we say!
Interestingly, the round solitaire engagement ring was also in the top trends for 2022. For the more classic consumer, this piece is timeless and continuted to maintain its relevance in 2022. Round solitaire may be a safe choice but it it is a timeless piece that can be layered or appreciated on it’s own. Not quite a trend but definitely deserves a mention as it was very popular this year!
Whilst fine and dainty may have been popular in the past, interestingly we are seeing the chunky diamond ring come back in fashion. Heavy gold bombe or sculptural diamond rings had a revival in 2022. Chunky rings offer a unique design and challenge the more traditional settings. Additionally, it is also a great way to get the impact of a big ring without the big diamond. We think this is a trend that will go into 2023, but definitely won’t last forever!
Lastly, if you found yourself sitting in between the traditional and the contemporary ring styles, the tilted ring offers the perfect combination of both. These rings were very popular in 2022 with the feature cetnre stone set slightly on an angle. Both unusual and classic, this ring will definitely continue into 2023 and we look forward to seeing the endless possibilities.
