A classic solitaire diamond engagement ring is safe but safe isn’t fun. And no one has more fun than our friends in Hollywood. If you are on the lookout for an edgy engagement ring, turn to the tabloids because these celebrity engagement ring trends are simply stunning:
The toi et moi
Toi et means ‘you and me’ in French, and these two stone rings do justice to their name. The ring usually consists of two different gemstones in different cuts and sizes. However, there are no rules when it comes to designing toi et moi engagement rings. The different gemstones are meant to represent the harmonious union of two unique individuals. Emily Ratajkowski and Ariana Grande are responsible for the wild surge in their popularity in 2021. Megan Fox carried the trend into 2022 with her pear cut emerald and diamond toi et moi ring which nearly broke the internet.
Minimalist cocktail rings
Cocktail rings were originally worn on the right hand to differentiate them from engagement rings. However, these lines of distinction have blurred as the fashion industry keeps reinventing itself. Celebrities have married the two ideas of the unapologetically bold cocktail rings and the sleek, traditional engagement rings. In this trend, the center stone is large but placed tastefully on a plain shank. Kourtney Kardishian and Hailey Beiber grabbed headlines for their subtle yet glamorous oval cut diamond engagement rings.
What do Princess Eugenie and Katy Perry have in common? Gorgeous engagement rings that look like fresh blossoms. Orlando really brought the ‘Bloom’ by fashioning the pop-icon’s ruby and diamond ring to look exactly like a flower. The ruby center stone is the same size as its diamond counterparts, giving the whole ring a tumblr-esque aesthetic. On the other hand, Eugenie’s padparadscha sapphire engagement ring has an oval cut center stone with the surrounding diamonds shaped to look like leaves and petals. Floral motif rings will never go out of style.
Fancy Color gemstones
From Heidi Klum’s mysterious color changing alexandrite ring to Scarlett Johanson’s golden hued- rare brown diamond ring, color gemstone engagement rings have been blinging all over the red carpet. The fancy color gemstones engagement ring trend isn’t new but it doesn’t seem anywhere close to dying out. Currently, pastel-colored gemstones like morganite, tourmaline and aquamarine have a strong hold over the industry and have become a popular choice for engagement ring center stones.
Antique-Style engagement rings
The antique style doesn’t refer to one single design but is an amalgamation of various time periods in art history and jewelry fashion, namely: Edwardian, Victorian, Art Deco. Penelope Cruz has one of the most beautiful antique blue sapphire halo engagement rings in the world. Set in an alluring silver-gray metal, the ring is probably an authentic antique piece. Lady Gaga’s pink sapphire ring was also rumored to be an antique piece.
