Top 10 trends for engagement rings in 2019

Ready to pop the question, but not sure where to start when choosing the ring?

From statement solitaires to unusual shapes, colours and settings, selecting the perfect engagement ring for your loved one can be a daunting task.

Never fear, we’ve done the hard work for you. Below, you’ll find the top 10 biggest engagement ring UK trends for 2019.


Unusual Shaped Diamond Rings

Unusual shaped diamonds are arguably the biggest trend in 2019. Shapes like pear, oval, heart and hexagon are being favored over traditionally styled rings, thanks to the likes of recently engaged celebrities such as Cardi B and Priyanka Chopra.

Heart Shaped Engagement Rings

Despite this surge in popularity, fancy-shaped diamonds have been popular for hundreds of years. Pear-shaped diamonds can even be traced back as early as the 15th century!

There are a few characteristics to watch out for when choosing an unusually shaped diamond for your engagement ring. You’ll want to think about symmetry, sparkle, and length to width ratio to ensure you get a quality diamond for your money, and one that will stand the test of time.


A popular choice for decades, yet one that continues to grow in popularity, ‘trilogy’ or ‘three stone’ rings feature just that – three classically cut diamonds set in a simple band, often of varying sizes to signify the couple’s past, present, and future together.

Gemstone and Diamond Yellow Gold Engagement Rings

Prince Harry chose an elegant trilogy ring when he proposed to Meghan Markle, and it’s easy to see why. Trilogy rings offer three times as much sparkle as a solitaire and allow the wearer to make a contemporary statement without the risk of ever going out of style.

Some more daring designs seen in 2019 showcase a trilogy style featuring unusually shaped diamonds, from baguettes to pears and trillions, set on elegantly thin bands.



While we’re speaking of Ms. Markle – yellow gold is experiencing a huge resurgence this year thanks to Harry’s choice of engagement ring. Meghan’s three-diamond showstopper is set on an elegant yellow gold band.

This eye-catching metal makes a statement and can be paired with both diamonds and coloured gemstones for a bride that is looking for something both bold and unusual.

Minimalist Band Engagement Rings


Minimalist engagement rings are trending, big time. These delicate rings often feature twisted bands, claw prongs and intricate diamond accents, and are an ideal choice for the bride that favors classic simplicity over flashy, ostentatious pieces. Think ‘less is more’ when selecting your minimalist ring.

Look for simple yet striking designs featuring delicate stones for a contemporary twist on traditional engagement ring styles.

Stacking Diamond Rings


Stacking rings have been increasing in popularity over the last few years, thanks to several prominent costume jewellery designers. For many, the engagement ring is the start of the ultimate stack, and several jewellery designers are now embracing the trend.

Be bold and choose unusual shapes for your loved one’s stack - oval, rectangle and octagon diamonds offer a unique twist for fashion-conscious brides.

When you're choosing a stacking ring, you’ll need to think long term – many brides and grooms will choose their engagement ring and wedding bands at the same time, as they are often designed to interlock when worn together.


Fancy making a statement when you pop the question?

Cluster Setting Engagement Rings

One of the biggest trends this year is the surge in clustered rings – where many smaller coloured diamonds are set to create a unique and eye-catching design. However, clustered rings have been a popular choice since Roman times. Historically, the number of stones included on a ring signified the wearer’s status and wealth.

Today, clustered rings are a popular choice for those looking to flaunt their individuality.


Gemstone Engagement Rings

Ruby and Diamond Engagement Rings

Colourful engagement rings are on the up.
Whether it’s a stunning sapphire engagement ring, a glowing green emerald or a deep red ruby, coloured stones are the perfect way to make a statement and stand out from the crowd, which is why many brides are choosing coloured stones for their engagement rings in 2019.

Kate Middleton famously said yes when Prince William popped the question with Princess Diana’s huge sapphire back in 2010, which many believe kickstarted this major trend.


As brides look for ways to make their weddings unique, this has also transferred to the jewellery they’re choosing to mark their special day. A huge the trend for 2019, hand-made and naturally inspired shapes and accents are being chosen over more uniform rings.

Engagement Rings


Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but pearls aren’t far behind either.

Combining these two classic stones creates an effortlessly elegant and timeless look for the modern bride. Pinterest has also seen a huge spike in pearl and diamond ring repins, thanks to a resurgence of pearl jewellery of late.


Solitaire Engagement Rings

While we love a bold style, a pop of colour and an unusual shape, solitaire rings continue to be the number one choice for brides the world over. It’s impossible to go wrong with the solitaire style, which is why this classic silhouette has stood the test of time.

These traditional rings usually feature just one focal stone and are the perfect choice for couples opting for a traditional wedding ceremony.

That said, there are still some fun ways you can create a unique look while still choosing a classic shape. Think about a minimalist band, or a modern metal like rose gold when choosing your solitaire ring.
