Engagement Ring Trends To Watch For in 2022
If you and your partner have made a New Year’s resolution to get engaged, here are some engagement ring styles for you both to watch for in the new year. Although your engagement ring and wedding band should reflect your personal preferences — not to mention the 4Cs of cut, color, clarity, and carat — exploring various designs is always great for finding inspiration. Here are the looks we anticipate seeing more and more of in 2022. Explore these engagement rings featuring VRAI created diamonds and discover the style meant just for you!
The Hidden Halo Engagement Ring
The Hidden Halo engagement ring is a contemporary take on a traditional style. The clean, fluid lines of our Classic solitaire engagement ring pair with an intricate array of handset pavé diamonds in this unique setting where the halo is placed within four curved prongs. The recycled solid gold placement and matching band secure this intriguing array of VRAI created diamonds, creating an unforgettable luminary effect that shines from all directions. The Hidden Halo continues to rise to the top as a favorite setting, and we expect it to keep doing so!
Vintage-Inspired Engagement Rings
Vintage-inspired engagement rings reimagine the traditional for a thoroughly original result. An elegant juxtaposition of history and innovation, these settings feature VRAI created diamonds and bridge worlds old and new. We anticipate seeing more settings such as the Duet engagement ring, the Curator engagement ring, Halo engagement rings, and Signature V pavé engagement rings in 2022. Added details such as an engraving or pavé band always give these styles a vintage touch.
Pear and Oval shaped diamonds
Pear shaped diamonds and Oval shaped diamonds are quickly becoming some of the most sought-after diamond cuts today. Round Brilliant diamonds remain the most well-known diamond shape, and Princess cut diamonds are some of the most popular in recent years. But Pear and Oval (as well as Marquise) maximize carat weight due to their large, open table — making your diamond often appear bigger. This fact, combined with the soft curves and romantic style these diamond shapes create have many wearers saying yes to this look.
Custom-designed Engagement Rings
More and more couples are opting for the white-glove experience of custom-designing their very own engagement ring. Most are inspired by timeless, classic looks but want to add bespoke details to create a ring that is their very own. This might include adding a bezel setting to their Three Stone engagement ring, opting for kite-shaped diamonds or other unique shapes, or adjusting one small detail to a design they adore. Our design experts at VRAI assist with every detail of custom-designed engagement rings, and look forward to this special option growing in popularity.
The Two Tone Engagement Ring
The Two Tone engagement ring combines the elegance of our Classic Solitaire design with the versatile appeal of a two-toned setting. The design includes a combination of 18k solid yellow or 14k solid rose gold band with platinum prongs. The contrast in metal colors enhances the band’s hue and lets your VRAI created diamond shine brighter than ever. Because of this setting’s modern yet timeless look, expect to see more couples opt for a two-tone design.
Eternity Bands give individuals looking for the same brilliance, fire, and scintillation of a VRAI created diamond engagement ring but in the streamlined style they’ve always wanted. This alluring unisex look is ideal for any and every couple wanting something slightly off the beaten path. The strength of your commitment is embodied by a platinum or solid gold band featuring VRAI created Round Brilliant diamonds. Commemorate an eternity of love with this design that can be worn solo or stacked with multiple rings for a memorable look.
