Did you know that the most popular time of year for proposals is between New Year and Valentines, and men typically spend around 3 months researching engagement rings before they buy. With this is mind I’ve decided to put together my predictions for the most popular engagement ring styles for 2021.
Asymmetrical Engagement Rings
Away from the norm and traditional asymmetrical engagement rings are increasing in popularity. This style is a beautiful way to show off your unique personality.
An unusual take on the cluster ring which features an 18 carat rose gold band with various shaped sapphires and rubies and featuring a stunning pink sapphire that twist around each other creating the illusion of movement.
Technical Tip: My advice when looking at this style is to make sure that the weight of the gemstones and top details are balanced otherwise the ring will fall to the heavier side when on the finger.

Diverse, exciting and unusual this ring features an 18ct white gold band with stunning sapphires that twist around each other creating the illusion of movement. This ring would make a beautiful, quirky engagement ring or for any special occasion.
Pear Shaped & Marquise Shaped Diamonds & Gemstones
This style is classic yet modern, often with a delicate band adorned in diamonds or gemstones which shows of the main focal point which is often a diamond in all it’s glory.
Technical Tip: In order for the ring to last the test of time, make sure that the even although the band is delicate, it shouldn’t be so delicate that it will snap or weaken over time and through wear – remember this is a ring that you will wear every day forever.

This is because these gemstone are incredibly strong and durable. But there are many other gemstones that are equally as beautiful to choose from. I love creating engagement rings with colored gemstones, especially rings with a color clash. My favourite at the moment is red and pink.

They are also perfectly paired with rose gold which only enhances their beauty and what’s not to love about rose gold which has never been so popular.
Rose gold engagement rings have been popular for quite a few years now with no signs of going away. For years I have been designing and making engagement rings which were mostly white gold with a few that were yellow. Now I’d say that rose gold is more popular than yellow with my clients. It has a softness about it which works very well with many different gemstones and skin tones.

Art Deco has increased in popularity over the past few years, it oozes style and luxury. Many designs include baguette shaped diamonds and emeralds. My own engagement ring is Art Deco in style featuring a beautiful green tourmaline.
