As we get closer to the year 2023, I can’t help but feel excited about the new engagement ring trends that are emerging. Whether you’re thinking about popping the question soon or just love to stay up to date with the latest styles, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 engagement ring trends to keep an eye on in the upcoming year.

Colored gemstones are definitely having a moment in 2023

Colored gemstones are definitely having a moment in 2023, and I personally love the idea of incorporating rich emeralds, vibrant sapphires, or romantic pink morganites into an engagement ring. There’s something so special about adding a unique touch of personality and color to such an important piece of jewelry.

Let’s take a look at diamond and gemstone shapes.

In terms of shapes, I’m thrilled to see a rise in unique diamond shapes such as oval, pear, marquise, and cushion. These unconventional shapes offer a fresh take on traditional engagement rings, and I can’t wait to see more people embrace them and add their own distinctive flair to their rings. My personal favorite is the cushion cut and the princess cut.

Influencers’ Latest Engagement Ring Shape Trends

Are you looking for an engagement ring that is both unique and elegant? Perhaps you should take a cue from the stars and consider an oval-shaped engagement ring. Many famous people have been seen wearing this shape and for good reason.

One reason for the popularity of the oval shape is its sophistication. It provides a modern twist on the classic round shape, with its elongated design offering a more refined and sophisticated look. This unique shape sets it apart from traditional round or square shapes.

In addition to its elegant design, the oval shape is also very versatile and flattering. It elongates the finger, creating a longer and slimmer appearance that many people find desirable. The shape also works well with different diamond cuts, such as pear, marquise, or emerald, and can be paired with other stones like sapphires or rubies.

Finally, the oval shape offers a larger surface area than other shapes with the same carat weight. This makes the stone appear bigger, which is perfect for those who want a larger diamond but don’t want to compromise on quality. It also gives the ring a more luxurious and expensive appearance, something that many celebrities look for in their engagement rings.

Many famous people have been spotted wearing oval-shaped engagement rings, including Blake Lively, Hailey Bieber, and Jennifer Aniston. These stunning rings have become a symbol of luxury and sophistication and are now a popular choice for anyone seeking a timeless and unique engagement ring.

In conclusion, an oval-shaped engagement ring offers a sophisticated and versatile option for anyone looking for a ring that stands out. With its elongated design, ability to pair with other stones, and the appearance of a larger stone, it’s no wonder why so many famous people have chosen this shape for their engagement rings.

Two Colored Metals for Your Engagement Ring: Why Settle for Just One?

Mixing metals in engagement rings has been a trend for a while now, and it’s one that’s still going strong in 2023. I personally love the contrast created by combining white gold, rose gold, and yellow gold, and I think it’s a great way to add some versatility to your ring while still keeping it cohesive.

When it comes to jewelry, I believe that adding a touch of personal style can make all the difference. That’s why I love the idea of combining white gold and silver in a ring. It’s a unique way to add some personality and character to an engagement ring or wedding band while still maintaining a timeless and elegant design.

The contrast between white gold and silver is not only visually appealing, but it’s also striking. The cool tones of silver work beautifully with the bright, white shine of white gold, creating a contrast that draws the eye and makes the ring stand out. This is especially true when diamonds or other gemstones are incorporated into the design, as the contrast of the metals can highlight the brilliance and sparkle of the stones.

In my opinion, combining white gold and silver is a stunning choice that offers versatility, timelessness, and striking contrast. Whether you’re looking for an engagement ring, wedding band, or just a beautiful piece of jewelry to wear on any occasion, this combination of metals is sure to turn heads and make a statement that reflects your personal style.

Finally, stacking rings are becoming more and more popular as a laid-back and casual option for engagement rings. I love the idea of being able to mix and match different bands to create a personalized look that’s perfect for any occasion.

Overall, I’m so excited about the engagement ring trends that we’ll be seeing in 2023. Whether you prefer classic or contemporary styles, there’s something out there for everyone. I can’t wait to see what creative and unique engagement rings people come up with in the upcoming year.

Vintage Engagement Rings Make a Comeback!

As someone who has always been drawn to vintage-inspired jewelry, I’m thrilled to see this trend making a strong comeback in 2023. There’s just something about the intricate details and delicate designs that make these rings so unique and special. From the stunning milgrain edging to the elaborate filigree patterns, vintage-inspired engagement rings are truly works of art.

One of the things I love most about vintage-inspired engagement rings is their timeless elegance. These rings have a classic and sophisticated look that never goes out of style. They are the perfect choice for anyone who wants a ring that is both unique and timeless. Whether you’re looking for a ring with a bold and dramatic design or a more subtle and understated look, vintage-inspired engagement rings offer something for everyone.

In addition to their timeless appeal, vintage-inspired engagement rings also offer a sense of romance and nostalgia. There’s a certain charm and sentimentality to these rings that makes them feel extra special. They evoke images of a bygone era, a time of glamour, elegance, and old-fashioned romance.

Finally, the level of craftsmanship that goes into vintage-inspired engagement rings is truly exceptional. These rings are often made using traditional techniques and materials, with skilled artisans handcrafting each piece. This attention to detail and dedication to quality is evident in every ring, making them heirloom-quality pieces that can be treasured for generations to come.

In conclusion, vintage-inspired engagement rings are a beautiful and timeless choice that offer a sense of romance, nostalgia, and exceptional craftsmanship. Whether you’re a lover of all things vintage or simply appreciate the elegance and sophistication of these rings, they are sure to make a stunning statement and become a cherished piece in your jewelry collection.

Add a New Side Ring to Your Engagement Ring Every Day

As someone who enjoys expressing their personal style through their jewelry, I am thrilled to see that stacking rings are becoming increasingly popular as a choice for engagement rings. Stacking rings provide a lot of creativity and individuality, as you can mix and match different bands to create a unique and personalized look.

One of the things that I love the most about stacking rings is their versatility. You can easily swap out the bands next to the ring to match your outfit or mood, and even add new bands to your collection over time. This makes stacking rings perfect for someone who wants multiple engagement rings, but doesn’t have the opportunity.

In addition to their versatility, stacking rings offer a laid-back and casual option for those who don’t want the traditional look of a single engagement ring. They’re ideal for the non-traditional bride who wants to make a statement with their engagement ring while still maintaining a relaxed and casual vibe.

Another great thing about stacking rings is that they can be mixed and matched with other rings and jewelry to create a layered and eclectic look. You can add other statement rings or delicate bands to create a truly unique and personalized look that reflects your personality and style.

conclusion to my little blog post

In conclusion, I am thrilled to see stacking rings becoming more popular as a choice for engagement rings. They offer versatility, creativity, and individuality that are perfect for someone who wants a unique and personalized look for their engagement ring. I can’t wait to see how this trend evolves and the creative ways that people will incorporate it into their personal style.

Overall, I’m so excited about the engagement ring trends that we’ll be seeing in 2023. Whether you prefer classic or contemporary styles, there’s something out there for everyone. I can’t wait to see what creative and unique engagement rings people come up with in the upcoming year.

The Tape Method

1. Grab a tape measure, string, or strip of paper.

2. Wrap it around the finger you’ll wear your ring on—if you’re creating a ring stack, consider where on your finger the ring will sit—and mark where it joins with a pen.

3. Lay your string or paper strip on a flat surface and measure the length up to the mark using a ruler. Use the chart above to match the measurement to the closest Abelstedt ring size.
