Most Popular Lab Diamond Engagement Ring Styles

Modern engagement rings with contemporary design flair from simple and elegant to something with a little bit of extra sparkle. 

These designs have evolved significantly over the years, reflecting changing tastes and trends in design. While traditional diamond engagement rings typically featured a solitaire diamond in a simple setting, modern diamond engagement ring designs embrace a wide range of styles and incorporate various elements to create unique and personalised rings.

One popular trend in modern diamond engagement rings is the use of multiple diamonds. Instead of a single solitaire, rings may now feature clusters of smaller diamonds or accent stones in random arrangements. These designs add extra sparkle and visual interest to the ring, creating a more luxurious and eye-catching look.

Another trend is the use of alternative diamond shapes. While round brilliant cut diamonds remain a timeless favourite, modern designs often showcase fancy shaped diamonds like princess, cushion, emerald, or pear shapes. These non-traditional shapes allow for more creativity in ring designs and offer a contemporary twist to the classic engagement ring.

In terms of metal choices, white gold and platinum remain popular options for modern diamond engagement rings, as they pair beautifully with the bright sparkle of diamonds. However, there is also a growing trend towards rose gold and yellow gold settings, which add warmth and a unique aesthetic to the ring.

Perfect for those with a contemporary yet timeless sense of style.  These pieces are expertly crafted, elegant and eye-catching.

When it comes to celebrities who have chosen modern or contemporary diamond engagement rings, there are several notable examples including Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence, Hailey Bieber, Meghan Markle and Emily Ratajkowski. These celebrities have embraced modern diamond engagement ring designs, showcasing their personal style and preferences. From unconventional shapes to unique settings and customisation options, these rings embody the modern approach to engagement ring design.

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of style is a modern engagement ring? 

Overall, modern engagement rings embrace a wide range of styles, shapes, and design elements that deviate from traditional norms. They offer a fresh and contemporary take on the classic symbol of commitment and love. Clean lines, simple silhouettes, and innovative design are the hallmarks and this look is ideally suited to those with a preference for striking forms and modern aesthetics.

Some common characteristics of modern & contemporary engagement rings include:

Non-traditional diamond shapes: Instead of the classic round brilliant-cut diamond, modern engagement rings may feature fancy shaped diamonds like hexagon, octagon, princess, emerald, or marquise shapes. These shapes offer a more unique look.

Multiple diamonds or diamond accents: Modern designs often incorporate multiple diamonds or diamond accents to add extra sparkle and visual interest. This can include clusters of smaller diamonds, diamond halos around the centre stone, or diamond pavé bands.

Unique settings and details: Modern engagement rings often feature creative and intricate settings, such as bezel settings, tension settings, or twist designs. These details add a contemporary and artistic flair to the ring.

Is it best to choose a contemporary, modern design or a more classic style engagement ring?

There are several reasons why you might choose a contemporary modern ring for an engagement ring over a classic style:

1. Unique Design: Contemporary modern rings often feature innovative and unique designs that stand out from the traditional solitaire or classic settings. If you are looking for something different and want your engagement ring to make a statement, a modern design can be a great choice.

2. Reflects Personal Style: Modern engagement rings allow you to showcase your personal style and individuality. These rings often incorporate non-traditional diamond shapes, alternative metal choices, and unique settings.

3. Trendsetting and Fashion-forward: If your partner likes to follow current trends, choosing a modern ring can demonstrate this willingness to embrace current trends. Modern engagement rings often reflect the latest jewellery design trends and can be seen as a symbol of being on the cutting edge.

4. Customisation Options: Modern rings often offer more customisation options compared to classic styles. You can personalise a modern design by adding intricate details, such as engraving or different-coloured gemstones. This allows you to create a ring that is truly one-of-a-kind and tailored to your preferences.

5. Enhanced Sparkle and Brilliance: Many modern engagement rings incorporate multiple diamonds or diamond accents, resulting in increased sparkle and brilliance. 

What metal colour is more contemporary in engagement rings?

We have gone through many metal colour trends in the jewellery industry over the past 50 years. Traditionally yellow gold was always used, so 30 years ago most engagement rings would have been yellow gold. However over the years platinum and white gold designs became more and more popular. All of a sudden the new ‘perfect’ engagement ring was a platinum, round brilliant cut solitaire. 

Well, enter 2020's and inspired by the vintage jewellery resurgence we saw another shift in the market with yellow gold becoming the front runner, especially in fashion jewellery. So, currently, the most on trend metal would be yellow gold. People like its warmth and it is felt to complement most skin tones. 

However, it's important to remember that trends can change over time and what is considered contemporary today might be different in the future. Ultimately, the most important factor is choosing a metal colour that suits the wearer. So look for the colour your partner usually wears, drop a few hints and see if you can find their preference.
