Wedding Ring Trends in 2020

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 

Wedding Ring Trends in 2020
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

Wedding Ring Trends in 2020 1
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

Wedding Ring Trends in 2020 3
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.

So, what do you think about our list of on the rise and decline for jewelry? Do you have more options on which designs would take the 2020 trend game to the notch and which would we definitely bid goodbye to?
