Since the beginning of the year 2020, we have seen various social media feeds flooding with wedding pictures. With celebrity influence getting stronger than ever, brides-to-be are looking for wedding rings that make them stand out from the crowd. As the younger millennial and the first of the Gen Zs are preparing to tie a knot for a lifetime, new trends play an immense role in choosing the perfect wedding rings and bands for women to match yours or your partner’s taste in style. From the types of rings to the shapes and settings that are on the rise or on the decline, Fascinating Diamonds will help you pick the perfect trend for your wedding day without any confusion or hustle.
Scroll further to learn everything that you need to know before choosing your wedding ring:
On The Decline: Pear Wedding Ring
Although Pears are simply magnificent, it is the most challenging of all shapes to produce. Longer or shorter proportions make pear-shaped diamonds less desirable. Teardrop diamonds gained popularity the year before as a wide number of celebrities chose to settle in for different kinds of pear-shaped engagement rings. Let’s just assume that brides had been looking for a shape that was a bit high profile and unique too. This year the trends for pear shapes shifted to ovals and antique diamonds.
On The Rise: Oval Engagement Ring
Whether you're searching for a minimal, timeless or vintage wedding ring, an oval diamond is a forever ongoing trend. An oval ring can easily match all your style needs and give you the desired look for every occasion. Oval-cut diamonds often give a “bigger look” than their carat size. Plus, they elongate your finger for an elegant and flattering effect. Vintage-inspired oval rings chip in a new vibe to the antique design. You could even choose to go super minimal by opting for a solitaire oval set on a thin metal band. Oval styles are a timeless trend for 2020 and hereon!
On The Decline: East-West Rings
The East-West rings had been in trend for years, thanks to the unique setting styles and the popularity it gained through celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor and many more. Although, recently, we have seen the East-West setting style being replaced by some more dainty two-stone and halo rings.
On The Rise: Halo Engagement Rings
Halo rings gained its popularity when Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Hudson, and many such celebrities tied a knot with this subtle ring style. Moving on to 2020, halos have landmarked themselves on the top of the list of diamond wedding rings for women with its sheer elegance and glamorous looks. The small diamonds encrusted design makes the center diamond appear larger than the traditional diamond in any halo wedding ring. Couples could be really creative by adding a unique twist with colored gemstones or additional detailing like different settings etc. on the wedding bands for couples or while designing wedding sets for women. Many are drawn to the beautiful symmetry and versatility of halo diamond rings.
On The Decline: Two Stone/ Signet
Two-Stone or signet rings have fascinated and charmed millions of women over the years, these rings were considered as style statements till the end of last decade and were worn by celebrities and influencers in major events. However, after ringing into the year 2020, most of the brides have shifted to new trends a whole lot more than before. With fancy trends like stackable bands and others, the signet rings have been taking quite a setback in the year 2020. Another reason why brides today resist wearing signet rings is that they often tone down the fancy attire of the brides with a faltered look.
On The Rise: Eternity Bands
Eternity rings and bands are designed to be the symbol or token of everlasting love and represent the loop of “eternity” that a couple plans to share. Moreover, these rings are meant to portray “the eternal circle of life”. Traditionally, the eternity wedding ring must be worn on the third finger of the right hand, but if you already have an engagement ring, it can be worn on the equivalent finger on the right hand. Eternity rings could be stacked for a snazzy look as well as used as a stand-alone ring for elegance & Sophistication.
On The Decline: Solitaire Wedding Ring
With new trends walking in and out every year, solitaires always held an elegant style statement. But with the new and unique designs like eternity rings and stacked bands making its way to the market of wedding bands, solitaires have received quite a setback in 2020. We see solitaires being replaced by stackable rings in the latest trends for women’s band rings.
On The Rise: Stacked Engagement Rings
When it comes to wedding rings, brides have a variety of choices. Most of the brides like the idea of wearing two wedding rings around their engagement ring for a symmetrical pattern. Meanwhile, others believe in the symbolism of the engagement ring being sealed within two bands. The 2020 trend has been favoring the “stacked” or “layered” look in jewelry for a while now. Hence, wearing several wedding rings at once can be seen as meaningful as well as fashionable.
On The Decline: Rose Gold Rings
Rose gold was one of the most popular metal requests for brides last year, but 2020 seems to be a year for yellow gold! Although rose gold rings are very durable, affordable and give a vintage/antique appeal complementing all skin tones. But, they do not suit all skin types.
On the rise: Yellow Gold Wedding Rings
Yellow gold wedding rings for women as well as platinum wedding bands for women have been the most trending ring styles for the year 2020. People are being inclined towards a more classic and timeless style along with a dainty and contemporary twist.

The bigger the hoop, the bigger the... Oh no, we won't say that out loud. They were once considered trashy and unattractive to be seen on a woman, but look how times have changed since then. Golden or silver, large or small, matte or glossy, these ear candies should never leave once they enter your jewellery box. Whatever colour you choose, they go perfectly with any hairstyle, especially with a tousled ponytail and loose waves. These circular stunners are easy to pair with any outfit as well, and you can also wear them with your favourite bathing suit. Beach goddess alert! Whether you match them with sneakers or a fancy dress, you can’t go wrong. If you haven't got a pair of them yet, it's time for a mini addition.
Skinny Frames Are The New Stunna Shades!
The 90's are back, people, and the teeny-tiny frames are taking center stage! From street style fashionistas to runway models, these retro pieces made a huge comeback. It seems like Kourtney Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Rihanna can literally put their trademark on them, since they barely take them off. After all, It's not about protecting your eyes from the sun, but it's all for the aesthetics. Although these types of sunnies don't flatter everybody's face shape, you can always choose sunglasses you won't get mocked for, such as round or square-shaped ones. But if you are determined and don’t care about what everybody else think, then there is no shape you can't pull off. Besides, everything is ugly until Rihanna decides it's not!
Less Is More, Always
Statement necklaces will get you noticed, but subtle necklaces even more. There's something about these accessories that will effortlessly complete your whole look. For ladies who adore the minimalistic charm, golden chain necklaces and subtle, layered chokers are the way to go. Perfect for any occasion, these discreet pieces bring out your feminine and classy side.
Straw Hats Are Amazingly Stylish
Straw hats with a contrasting ribbon never went out of style. You can wear them during the day, but most importantly, they keep your head safe at the beach. If you are one of those girls who aren't ashamed to speak their minds but you'd rather have your hat speak instead, then embroidered slogan hats should be your staple head accessories for this season. Oversized hats are trending too, and they are all over Instagram.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend? I'd rather say it's a nice watch. These are the most common and the most wearable hand accessories ever, and if you don't own at least one, then we're calling the fashion cops. It's 2018, which means you can wear the same watch with a baggy tracksuit and a glamorous dress. Stylish Daniel Wellington watches made their way into fashion, and Instagram influencers went crazy over them. Who wouldn't? Cuff and anchor bracelets are a perfect addition to this watch and trust me, no one really cares whether they are gold or silver because rules don't apply anymore.
Bandana Oh Na Na
Bandanas are the easiest hair accessories ever and they look super cute too. You can wear them with different hairstyles, such as voluminous ponytails and messy buns. Since it's summer and our wardrobes are getting more colorful, opt for the floral, red, yellow or white ones. For the beauties who’d like to bring the 60's back, these are super cheap and light-weight too. So make your hair big, and show the world your inner Brigitte Bardot.

It's not a secret that women love jewellery. Receiving it makes them feel and look special.

"The best part of gifting jewellery is that whatever it costs, once gifted it becomes a piece on which you simply can’t put a price tag. It works like a photograph, the memory associated with the gift will carry through with the person for life," says Urban Cocktail and we couldn't agree more.

Debora Ann Malouf, owner and creative designer of DM Jewellery Designs, explains, “I will design and re-design a piece until it perfectly captures not only my vision, but also the vision of the client who is involved in the entire custom design process. I refuse to finalize a piece until each one of us experiences what I term as the “WOW” factor.” She continues to state, “Nothing excites me more than manifesting the visions of designs that capture the essence of a woman.”
