Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day, 40% of all proposals in the United States are happening right now! Engagement ring trends for 2020 are on full display already. From yellow gold making a comeback, to pear-shaped diamonds to colored stones for the center of the ring, we’ve got you covered so you know what to look for, or you know what to hint to your boyfriend.
Engagement Rings with Colored Stones
While many maintain having a colored stone in the center of the engagement ring accented by diamonds really isn’t an “engagement” ring, there are plenty of celebrities who would disagree. Many at the end of 2019 were spotted with engagement rings that had topaz, tanzanite, and others for the center stone.
Yellow Gold Engagement Rings Make a Comeback
White gold and platinum rings ruled the past few decades and rose gold rings made a huge splash, but since the 80’s are making a comeback, so is yellow gold. The Gold Standard has always stood the test of time. While considering the “4 Cs” for your diamond, it is always important to consider what color mounting you prefer.
