Check out some of the exceptional styles you can expect to see adorning fingers celebrating new engagements in the coming months.

2021 Engagement Ring Trends Are Already Turning Heads

Not all engagement rings are created equal. Believe it or not, there are plenty of ways to personalize this most important item of jewelry. From side stone accents to sustainable designs, here are some of the engagement ring styles you can expect to see shine brightest in 2021.

Unique Side Stone Accents

Engagement ring designs have evolved past traditional side stones. These days, vintage styles featuring milgrain detailing and unique shaped side stones are cropping up on the scene with a vengeance. We’re especially fond of marquise-shaped side stone designs, which were a top choice among 80s-era brides. Think Dynasty diva and channel your inner Krystle Carrington. 

For the woman who loves everything uncommon, opt for the Genevieve Engagement Ring. Marquise-shaped silhouettes hold two round cut side stones, for a truly unique look that combines the brilliance of a round cut with the unique shape of the striking marquise. As a bonus, milgrain detailing frames the stones giving this band an extra burst of elegance.

Refreshing Solitaires

Of course, the classics are beloved for a reason. If you love the look of a sleek solitaire design but want to add a touch of playfulness to your ring, consider one of the uniquely beautiful settings boasting intriguing subtle details. From hidden halos to unexpected metals, the options for understated elegance are virtually endless. We recommend considering a less common metal and stone shape, such as rose gold with a radiant-cut center stone found in the Lily Engagement Ring

Three Stone Rings

What’s better than an engagement ring with one stone? A ring that features three. Often said to symbolize past, present, and future, three stone rings are perfect for the woman who loves to shine bright in everything she does. Fortunately, Ella Rose offers an array of three-stone ring options, so you’re guaranteed to find the perfect one for her. 

Sustainability 

These days, many brides are passionate about the environmental impact of the bridal industry, and for good reason. So it’s little surprise that one of the most popular 2021 engagement ring trends is sustainability. 

The good news is that Ella Rose is just as passionate about ethical sourcing and protecting the environment. All engagement rings feature lab-grown moissanite as a spectacular diamond alternative as well as ethically sourced and traceable gemstones. For every purchase made, Ella Rose donates to a conservation fund dedicated to protecting America’s natural resources. You can feel good about choosing a proposal-ready ring that’s as breathtakingly beautiful as it is eco-friendly and responsible.

When it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring, band selection gets most of the attention. However, that doesn’t mean you should neglect to consider the shape of your center stone. Whether you opt for a diamond or another gem, the cut is of optimal importance, affecting everything from how much the ring sparkles to the way it makes you feel. Moreover, different stone shapes work best for certain types of brides. 

At Ella Rose, we take pride in providing rings made from beautiful and environmentally friendly moissanite, the only stone that originated from the stars. Found in meteor remnants, moissanite is now made in a lab; however, the end result is no less brilliant. Keep reading to learn about the top trending moissanite shapes for 2021, along with tips on choosing the right cut for your bride to be. 

Matching the Stone Cut to the Bride

What’s the perfect gem shape for your sweetheart? Is she traditional or modern? Elegant or unconventional? Read on to discover the top trending moissanite shapes for brides of different stripes. 

Round Cut

Looking for a ring that shines brighter than the rest? Then look no further than the classic engagement ring stone cut, the brilliant round cut. Trending endlessly because of its captivating shine, every year round cut rings are the most popular cut of engagement rings sold. While this cut is popular, it is anything but ordinary. Choosing a round cut moissanite allows brides the most options for finding an engagement ring setting that reflects their own unique personality. Not to mention the timeless cut allows for the piece to perhaps one day be passed along as a family heirloom. 

Oval Cut 

Want to step away from the crowd, without sacrificing any sparkle? An oval cut ring may be just the thing to help you achieve your dreams. This particular stone cut is second only to the round cut for brilliance, however, the elongated shape allows for an increased surface area, which means more ways to enjoy the irresistible shimmer. At once feminine and delicate, oval stones evoke memories of ages past. Additionally, these shapes look lovely when paired with side stones in different colors. Consider an oval-cut moissanite ring with a rose gold band for the bride who stands out in any room she walks into. 

Pear Shaped 

Featuring a narrow top and rounded bottom, pear shaped stones are undeniably modern, making them a great option for contemporary-minded brides. Reminiscent of a teardrop, these uniquely dazzling stones are at once playful and romantic. For a look that makes the center stone the star of the show, opt for a classic solitaire setting. On the other hand, if you want a more ornate style, consider a vintage-inspired band boasting side stones or a halo.
