3. Unique and One-of-a-Kind
Most of the designers we polled are betting on their brides-to-be wanting something personal and breaking with tradition. “For 2020 I think clients will continue to seek out non-traditional rings that feature unusual stones,” says AZLEE founder Baylee Zwart.
4. Bands that Stand Out
Even when brides want to keep the centerstone shape classic, they're looking for something out of the ordinary for the setting. “We have been seeing an increase in requests for a unique band over a solitaire engagement ring,” says Katherine Kim. “Clients seem to love the idea of going more non-traditional with a statement band that feels more special to them.”
5. Multiple Stones in a Ring
You can thank Meghan Markle for the rise in popularity of the three-stone engagement ring, and 2020 will see brides-to-be wanting even more stones. "Three and five stone rings are becoming popular choices for engagement rings,” says designer Ashley Zhang.
6. Emerald Cut
Maybe it’s the return of Downton Abbey, but brides are also looking for vintage inspiration when it comes to centerstone cuts. "Emerald cuts are rising in popularity,” according to Zhang. “The emerald cut was a staple of the Art Deco era, but it can look very modern when set on a delicate or simple band.”
