Engagement Ring Trends for 2023

Engagement Ring Trends for 2023

Thinking of proposing to your partner this year and the idea of ring shopping is stressing you out? Well, you have come to the right place! Check out the top engagement ring trends for 2023 below to give you some guidance on all things trending.

First things first, you have to know if your partner is a gold or silver person. Then, you will need to find out their favourite diamond shape and if they want any custom elements.

Oval Cut Diamonds

Propose to your partner with one of the most sought-after diamond shapes that is certain to catch everyone’s eye! Oval diamonds are the new craze and are rapidly rising in popularity, and for good reason; they are beyond beautiful! (And we’re not just saying that because they are our personal favourite!) Don’t believe us? Some of our favourite jewellers including Parade Jewellers and Simon Curwood Jewellers couldn’t agree more! They shared with us that oval shaped diamonds are at the top of engagement ring trends for 2023! Why? Because, oval shapes can be so versatile. So, if your partner is all about elegance, then a plain gold or silver band will be the perfect match to the large diamond and will suit their style perfectly. If your partner is someone who loves all things glamour and sparkles, a full diamond band is the best way to go.

Lab Grown Diamonds

Interested in sourcing a more ethical and eco-friendly option? Lab grown diamonds have been soaring the ladder of popularity in the engagement ring industry! We spoke to Parade Jewellers and Simon Curwood Jewellers and they shared that this is one of their most popular requests of 2023 so far! Lab grown diamonds look the exact same as natural diamonds to the naked eye. Lab grown diamonds are also perfect if you’re not wanting to spend an exorbitant amount on the ring (save some for the proposal setting!). The price can be reduced by up to 50% in comparison to natural diamonds because there is no wait time for the growing and mining process. You can learn more about lab grown diamonds here.

Radiant Cut Diamonds

Another style of diamond we have seen a lot of lately is the radiant shape. These diamond engagement rings look so delicate and exquisite on the hand. If your partner has a vibrant personality, this might just be the diamond shape for them! Parade Jewellers told us that this shape has been highly requested this year. The shape looks so classy, and adds levels of elegance to make it stand out from all the other diamond cuts.

Two Stone Engagement Rings

Go big or go home! Does your partner loves diamonds? Why not choose a ring that has more than one big diamond! It is going to be on your partner’s finger for the rest of their life, so you might as well make sure they love it! These rings give off the ultimate boujee vibe. So, if you’re partner is extra in any sense of the word, this will be the ring of their dreams! This style engagement ring is worn by celebrities such as Ariana Grande and Megan Fox, so your partner will feel like a superstar wearing one of these.

Coloured Stone Engagement Rings

One of our favourite engagement ring trends we’ve seen this year with our clients is coloured stones! It’s 2023, let’s be real people love straying away from the norm and doing something unique and true to them! If your partner is fun and free spirited, a coloured stone would compliment them perfectly. Whether your partner is eccentric, or they just love their favourite colour too much to have a plain diamond on their finger for the rest of their life; a coloured stone is undeniably the way to go! You can find beautiful, coloured stones in all different styles including the above trending cuts and art deco styles if they love vintage. For something out of the ordinary this is your best bet!
