Refinery 29: 7 Engagement Ring Trends That Will Be Big In 2022 January 05, 2022 (0 comments)


New York, NY—Refinery 29, a fashion and lifestyle website geared to Millennial-age women, recently posted an article listing seven engagement ring trends fthat will be big in 2022. Image: Solitaire ring by CrownRing.

Shelley Brown, senior fashion and beauty editor of bridal site The Knot, told R29, “Shape and setting are still the most important ring features, while [carat] size has actually become less important.” Though Brown says that diamonds remain the most popular stone, and round the most popular cut, there are less-expected design details that will garner attention — such as yellow gold settings, oval cuts, and lab-grown stones — this year. 

Noticeably absent from R29’s seven trends are halo settings, vintage design, milgrain and pavé accents, and other design standards of recent times. The examples shown by R29 are still delicate, but generally more minimalist than we’ve been used to seeing. It’s also interesting to note that while the trends they list might feel new to consumers, they’re not news at all to the jewelry industry, a reminder that what you see and what customer see aren’t always the same thing. 

Here are the top seven trends Refinery29 identifies for engagement rings this year:

A three-stone ring with oval center, by Uneek.
