Love & Luxury: A Glimpse into 2023’s Celebrity Engagement Ring Trends
Engagement ring trends are constantly evolving and are heavily influenced by the elegance and grandeur of celebrity engagements. We’re over halfway through the year and the list of celebrity engagements continues to grow. Among some of them are Ashley Benson & Brandon Davis, Olivia Culpo & Christian McCaffery, and Logan Paul & Nina Agdal. From stunning solitaires to vintage-inspired settings, let’s delve into the current engagement ring trends among some of our favorite celebrities.
Sustainable Sparklers -
Eco-consciousness has become a huge factor in the engagement ring industry. Celebrities are embracing ethically sourced natural gemstones and eco-friendly materials to express their love for their partner in an eco-friendly manner. Recycled metals and natural diamonds are rising in popularity within this trend.
Unique Diamond Shapes -
Classic round-cut diamonds will always be a popular option, but recently we have seen a rise in unconventional diamond shapes. Celebrities have been leaning towards distinct shapes such as emerald-cut diamonds, marquises, pears, ovals, etc. Nina Agdal’s engagement ring features a 6-carat emerald cut center stone with a bullet-cut diamond on each side.
Colored Gemstones –
Diamonds remain the most popular choice for engagement rings, but colored gemstones such as emeralds, rubies, and sapphires are becoming increasingly popular among celebrities. From Hollywood icons to international stars, celebrities such as Rita Ora and Kate Middleton. Rita Ora’s stunning engagement ring features a 10-carat emerald-cut Columbian green, emerald set in a sparkling pave halo.
Elaborate Vintage Designs –
Vintage-inspired rings have been a longtime reoccurring trend, especially in the celebrity world. Celebrities have been choosing to go for rings with intricate engravings, bezel sets, milgrain detailing, and halo settings, which are characteristics often found in vintage designs. Lakeith Stanfield proposed to his girlfriend with a 2.5-carat natural diamond set on a double pave halo and twisted pave shank. These vintage touches offer a sense of nostalgia and seamlessly blend with modern characteristics to create a beautiful ring.
Delicate & Minimalist Bands –
In contrast to the grandeur of vintage designs, many celebrities are leaning towards minimalistic designs such as Ashley Benson. Thin and delicate bands are stealing the spotlight and allowing the natural diamond to be the star of the show. While thin bands are in style, we recommend nothing smaller than a 2mm band for the safety and security of your natural diamond. Ashley Benson’s 10-carat oval diamond is a great example of a safe and thin band.
As celebrities continue to influence and set trends within the jewelry industry, the engagement rings of 2023 are a testament to the blend of sustainability, uniqueness, and personal expression. From vintage-inspired rings to minimalistic bands, there’s an engagement ring style that fits the needs and wants of every taste and personality.
Remember, while celebrity-inspired engagement rings are captivating, the most important aspect of any engagement ring is the love and commitment it represents between two people. So, whether you’re drawn to the brilliance and sustainability of natural diamonds or the allure and uniqueness of a colored gemstone, let these trends be an inspiration during your search for the perfect ring. After all, the most beautiful ring will be the one that symbolizes the love between you and your partner.
