The year 2020 has certainly been a year we will never forget… for better or for worse. After months spent quarantining together, you and your partner may be ready to take that next step (congratulations!). For most people, choosing an engagement ring is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which is why the choice has to be right and the ring has to be perfect! Nowadays, brides are getting more and more involved in the process.
If you want to know what the engagement ring trends are going to be for the year 2021, keep reading because we have collected them all.
Elongated Cushion Cuts
An elongated cushion is a perfect balance between modern and traditional, and it is a perfect choice for the brides that want something unique but still do not want to stray too far from the classic.
This cut can be described as a square shape softer on the edges, which give it a display that reminds of a pillow. The centerpiece appears as though its facet is larger than its equivalents that are identical in karat weight, thanks to its appearance and shape.
Unique Center Stones
The classic cuts are not going anywhere, but we are expecting to see a rise in alternative shapes. Every engagement ring cut is equally stunning on its own, we can all agree on that. However, in 2021, we are going to see an increase in center stones that are shield, hexagon, or trillion cut, as well as heart, kite, and teardrop-shaped.
Three-stone settings are certainly not new; they have been popular for a while now, but we are going to see a rise in more unique shapes for these trios. The timeless and elegant nature of a three-stone engagement ring style will be front of mind for brides, but more and more brides are going to customize these timeless styles with personalized touches or fancy shaped diamonds.
