The 4 Biggest Engagement Ring Trends for 2020

Shopping for an engagement ring can be completely daunting if you don’t know where to begin. With so many factors to consider like stone shape, gemstones, setting styles, vintage versus new, and more, the number of potential combinations approaches infinity. In other words, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the choices you can make. So before you get in over your head, we’re here to help guide you to (hopefully) finding your perfect match.

Since we’re a trend-minded bunch here at Who What Wear, we wanted to look at engagement rings through that lens. Let’s face it, even though they’re a jewelry staple that’s supposed to be a “forever” item, they’re also subject to the ebbs and flows of the trend cycle. So to get you up to speed on which ring styles will be the most popular for brides-to-be in 2020, we tapped an expert who knows a lot more about the topic than we do. We sat down with Olivia Landau, a fourth-generation gemologist and founder and CEO of The Clear Cut, who clued us into four engagement ring trends she’s noticed cooling off this year as well as four more that she’s flooded with requests for, a telltale sign of an emerging trend.
