So, the big day is fast approaching and it’s time to head to the jewelers again. But a wedding ring can come in so many options, and you may consider coordinating your wedding ring with your engagement ring, so if you’re lost on where to start, take a look at our suggestions. We’re covering everything from the hottest ring styles in 2022 to the most popular diamond shapes.
Toi et moi
‘Toi et moi’, or ‘You and me’ is a setting for your ring that sees one or two diamonds accompanying your initial diamond. The pairing is seen as a recognition of you and your partner in the ring and comes in various looks. Your main diamond can be flanked by two smaller ones on either side or simply have two mismatched but coordinating diamonds meeting in the middle.
It’s a good excuse to get creative with your engagement ring. You can add color and not miss out on your clean-cut diamond while experimenting with shape, with metals, and with the setting.
The oval-shaped diamond is making a comeback. There is something very timeless about this shape, which is proven by the fact that they’ve seen a bit of a renaissance in popularity. The pros say that the long shape lengthens the appearance of the fingers and draws attention to the hand. That, paired with its timeless nature, makes it quite the recurring trend and the one you can’t really go wrong with.
Stacked diamond rings mean that your wedding ring and engagement ring can be coordinated. You have your engagement ring with the stone that typically is a lot bigger than the band, and the stacked wedding ring that molds itself around the gem of your engagement ring. It’s a stylish option for that ring-wearer that gives a very neat effect. It would appeal to the people of the world who are already stacking rings with their outfit.
Art Deco, whether you’re talking about home décor or jewelry, is defined by its angular shapes. You know you’re looking at an Art Deco piece when you see a square, princess, radiant or emerald cut.
But there are a few rings out there with accompanying smaller angular gems that greatly replicate the geometric patterns of the roaring 20s. It’s also a good chance to incorporate some color in there, as emeralds and sapphires are very popular with this style and the grandeur that comes with it. And, of course, the band doesn’t have to be gold, but nothing says Art Deco more than gold.
This football-shaped cut is a nice mix of curved and angular, giving a vintage shape and a stylistic statement in the one piece. Considering vintage rings are also making a comeback, the marquise cut is perfect. It can hold its own in a lot of modern styles, but if you’re looking for something timeless, the marquise cut is a great option, not least because it has a reputation for lengthening and slimming the appearance of fingers.
