Over a Third of People Want This Type of Engagement Ring Now

Latest news

    Since the announcement of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, we’ve understandably spent a lot of time talking about the dress. But we’ve also put in some quality time to marvel at Meghan’s gorgeous engagement ring. The gold band has three classic diamond stones—the outside two were repurposed from one of Princess Diana’s broaches, and the middle comes from Botswana. Now, while you might imagine that in 2018 the engagement ring trend would follow what the royal-to-be is wearing that actually isn’t the case at all.

    According to new information from Gemporia, a British jewellery retailer, 40% of its engagement rings sold are coloured gemstones, with an increase of 15% from the previous year. Half of the gemstone engagement rings sold are Tanzanite, with the top alternative gemstones include: emerald, tanzanite, ruby and sapphire. This is completely the opposite of Meghan’s more traditional ring. 

    I investigated this further and spoke to Salim Hasbani, director and diamond specialist at Tresor, who revealed a similar story about this year’s biggest trends. “Right now it’s all about unique rings and a great way to show your individuality is to have a stone as unique as you, such as a sapphire, ruby or coloured diamond. Coloured stones are very eye-catching and are an easy way to make your ring memorable.”

    So if you’re thinking about getting engaged, or you and your betrothed are looking for a more individual style, keep scrolling for our pick of different coloured engagement rings to suit every budget.
