The start of a new year brings all kinds of reflection and planning. Of course, for all our trendy women, some of the biggest planning is determining which trends to hop on if getting engaged is in your 2019 future. Here’s our guide to what’s trending from the social landscape to the design room in the new year!
Split Shank Engagement Rings
Uneek has been perfecting the split shank over the years, making brides happy with delicate layers of sparkling diamonds. Creating an openwork illusion of two rings in one, this style has grown in popularity and been seen on some of the hottest celebrities like Joe Jonas’ bride and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner. We know it will continue to be on the list of stylish brides this year. Learn more about this fancy yellow diamond ring and emerald cut ring.
Geometry Lesson: Going Beyond Round
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again in 2019, oval rings are having a moment! More and more A-listers are choosing the bold oval and its close counter, the pear shape, for their statement rings. Whether your ice is large like theirs or more modest, you can’t beat the oval for a unique ring shape that makes the center stone look bigger! Hailey Baldwin chose the shape with her ring from Justin Beiber and we can’t blame her.

Colorful Gemstone Engagement Rings
What became a “thing” with Princess Diana’s much-replicated sapphire-and-diamond ring long ago is enjoying some modern love thanks to a resurgence of everything from the past. And it’s not just for royalty. Many brides are choosing colorful gems as a center stone or flanking a traditional diamond to set themselves apart from the crowd. We concur. Only another rare jewel can add to a diamond’s timeless style.

After decades of white gold and platinum, we find it refreshing to see this classic metal on the ring fingers of brides. Need more convincing?
