Modern Engagement Rings

Showing all 12 results

Modern engagement rings are characterized by sleek, clean lines, minimalism, and innovation. One style that stands out is the “Toi et Moi” setting which often mixes two different stones. This style has been celebrated as being a physical representation of the coming together of two people during an engagement. Another trend that is commonplace with modern rings is the use of color. Although colorful gemstones have been used for quite a long time, incorporating color into modern rings offers an alternative to the classic colorless diamond. Gender-fluid options for rings have also risen in popularity typically with a thicker band and simpler understated design. Furthermore, experimentation with the band of the ring to create a more sculptural ring is also a feature of modern rings. Some styles worth noting are the crossover or bypass band, twisted band, and stacked.
