Exciting and Fresh 2022 Engagement Ring Trends

December 15th, 2021

If you’re planning to get engaged in the next few months, then you’ve spent some time meticulously choosing which wedding dress works best. However, you might not have taken as much thought in picking an engagement ring. While most people only don their wedding dress for a few hours, an engagement ring will encircle a finger for decades, so it’s only logical to choose a style that reflects who you are as a person and the intricacies of a marriage. At Long Jewelers, we’re passionate about helping couples make this important decision. Keep reading to learn about the most stunning 2022 engagement ring trends.

In With The Old

Expect to see plenty of vintage-inspired engagement rings behind the glass this year. These designs echo styles that were popular during the art deco era of the 1930s. Along with engravings and pave, our favorite vintage rings boast old-European diamond cuts like marquise. This Fana Classic ring with luxurious white gold and milgrain accents speaks for itself.

Vibrant Gems and Vivacious Jewels

Clear diamonds might be the traditional engagement ring stone, but that doesn’t mean they are the only option. On the contrary, an increasing number of people are opting for something a little outside the box. Think of Princess Di’s class sapphire ring. Not ready to swap out your center diamond? Consider this TACORI Dantela collection ring, which gets added excitement from side sapphires.

Make it Marquis

Many people are eschewing the common round cut in favor of the marquis, which could be described as a slender, pointed oval. These days, plenty of brides and grooms are choosing uncommon stone shapes such as the marquise. A popular choice for 2022, this style has ties to the past – in fact, the name supposedly originated with the Marquise of Pompadour. The story goes that King Louis XIV created a stone in this shape specifically for her, which allegedly resembles her lips. For a more dramatic ring, opt for a halo style marquise like this Fana design in rose gold.

Make it You

If none of the 2022 engagement ring trends meets your needs, there are plenty of ways to get a unique and personalized ring. The best jewelry shops can custom design an engagement ring that’s sure to please. Not only is this a great way to get exactly what you want, but it also serves as a romantic way for couples to bond over their impending nuptials. From selecting a unique setting to choosing exactly the diamond or gemstone you want, the options for designing your own ring are virtually endless.
