One thing we know for sure about engagement rings – trends will definitely come and go as quickly as you can say “I do.” At least once every 2-3 years, a new style of engagement ring will emerge and rise to the top of the most wanted list, giving pause to every bride to be as she considers whether this new style has become “the ring.”

For the groom, who shoulders the enormous task of choosing and buying the ring, these trends can often lead to confusion and self-doubt. As they go about seeking just the right ring for their girl, they can become overwhelmed with trying to stay up to speed on trends and fashions.

To help both the bride and groom sift through the many choices of rings and hone in on what is most trendy, we provide the list below of trendy engagement rings of 2014.

 

East – West Settings

Taking an oval or marquise cut diamond and setting it horizontally, parallel with the band, has become a huge trend in the last year or two. Setting it horizontally adds a completely different look and can even make the stone appear bigger than it really is.

 

Antique Look

Some things just never get old. That is certainly true when it comes to the highly detailed design of an antique engagement ring. The advantage to an antique ring is that it increases the chance of the ring being one in a million. They are almost always more intricate and definitely draw attention to themselves.

 

Pear Diamonds

This is a cut and style that continued to make its comeback in 2014. Pear shaped diamonds have always been and continue to be for the princesses in the world. They are designed to be dainty with a royal feel.

 

Floral Accents

We continue to see more and more styles of engagement rings that surround the center stone with flowers, petals, and vines giving them a unique and fresh look.

 

Peach Hue

From pink to yellow to blue, hued gems and diamonds have made a huge splash in the engagement ring world over the last few years. In 2014, we saw the rise in popularity of the peach hue gems. They are very feminine and in hot demand.
