01/07/2018 - 10:59 AM

While the diamond solitaire is still reigning supreme in the realm of engagement rings, the wedding industry has recently been mixing things up with more interesting and unique options. Don't want a diamond? No worries. Feeling inspired by Meghan Markle's incredible ring [1]? Who isn't. From classic shapes to original cuts and colors, read on to see the biggest engagement ring trends of 2018.

Gray Stones

If you want a sparkly stone but you still want something a little out of the ordinary, how about dropping a few hints about a gray diamond? Shades vary hugely, but opt for a darker one for maximum stormy impact.

3-Stone Settings

Undoubtedly inspired by Meghan Markle's own engagement ring [2], three-stone settings are back in fashion — and better than ever. They'll be the perfect statement piece for any classic bride-to-be.

Hexagons

If pear-shaped diamonds aren't doing it for you, then how about something more geometric like a hexagon? You'll really be able to have fun with this modern shape, from cut to color and setting.

Pear Shaped

Carrie Bradshaw might have hated the pear-shaped ring that Aidan bought her, but they're coming back into fashion in a big way. Pair yours with a curved wedding band for maximum impact.

Double Bands

Double bands are becoming more and more popular — just ask Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner [3] — and they'll be a great choice if you don't want to wear a wedding band alongside your engagement ring. If you'd like to go for a two-in-one look, it might be worth having a discussion with your SO or designer.
