The Engagement Ring Trends for 2024

People have different priorities when it comes to purchasing an engagement ring. Some people prioritize the size of a diamond, while others are less concerned with the carat and more focused on design. 

The Engagement Ring Trends For 2024

Some people might choose to be engaged without a diamond engagement ring or prefer the simplicity of just an engagement band. With so many different perspectives on the topic, it's no wonder that engagement ring trends vary widely.

A simple engagement ring can be the most beautiful thing in the world. But sometimes you want more. You want to make sure that your partner knows how much they mean to you and that the engagement is special. This can be done by choosing a ring with details like diamonds, emeralds, or cluster stones. 

Here are some of the most popular trends for engagement rings in 2024:

Bezel Settings

Similar to a bezel chain, it's just what it sounds like: A metal band hugs the stone and secures it within the ring so that its edges do not come into contact with any other materials over time. This prevents damage from wear, chipping, or cracking. This style is good for delicate gemstones such as emeralds, and they're also very popular in engagement rings.

Olivia Landau, founder of The Clear Cut, notes that bezel-set engagement rings are gaining popularity due to their sleek, modern design and ease of setting. The bezels allow for a variety of shapes, including emerald cuts, Asscher's, and radiant diamonds.

Bezel settings can be used for both diamonds and colored stones, such as rubies or sapphires. But one thing they all have in common is that they'll give your ring an antique feel no matter what kind of gem you decide on.

Black Diamonds

Black diamonds are a relatively new trend. Although they are not as rare as you might think, black diamonds can be found in many different shapes and sizes. Round, oval, and princess cuts and their dark hue make them an excellent choice for engagement rings.

For couples who make their own rules, black diamonds offer an unconventional choice for engagement rings. This rare gemstone is thought to symbolize power and passion, making it a perfect fit for those who value dedication in relationships.

Jewelry designer Anna Sheffield points out that black diamonds have recently become popular in ceremonial jewelry, along with dark blue sapphires and other moody gems like gray spinels.

White Diamonds

When you think of fancy colored diamonds, you probably envision yellow, pink, or blue gemstones that are often auctioned off or worn by celebrities on red carpets. Less familiar may be the rare white versions known as Fancy White Diamonds. Though these stones are less well-known than others, they can be among the rarest and most exciting diamonds we see in nature.

White diamonds have gained popularity due to their color, beauty, and value. Leibish's 2022-2023 white diamonds collection has a variety of beautiful diamonds with bright luster and is good for any occasion. They are a perfect choice for engagement rings or other jewelry pieces, as they add elegance and sophistication to any jewelry set.

While all other fancy color diamonds obtain their coloring from non-carbon elements and atomic-level defects, white diamonds get their hue from submicroscopic inclusions that scatter the light to create a whitish appearance.

Antique Cuts

Antique cuts are the way to go if you're looking for something a bit more traditional. These diamonds have a more rounded shape than other types of diamond cuts and are available in a variety of colors. The most popular antique cut is the emerald cut, followed by the old mine cut and round brilliant.

Antique cuts were very popular back in their day, but they've since fallen out of favor due to their larger table size. Though this doesn't mean they're not worth considering as an engagement ring choice. Antique cuts are still great if you're drawn to vintage designs.

Cluster Stones

If you're looking for an engagement ring that will stand apart from others, yet doesn't break your budget, then cluster rings are a good option. A collection of different-sized stones in varying cuts is what gives these rings their interesting look and feel.

Cluster stones are smaller than solitaires and can be set in a variety of ways. The most common setting is the pave setting, which means that each stone is placed in its own little prong setting with no visible metal holding it in place. This is great if you want something flashy without spending too much money on diamonds.


Much like the other stones on this list, emeralds are a member of the beryl family. Emeralds are found in all three colors: green, blue, and yellow. They can also be found with a colorless or white body tone, making them a unique option for engagement rings.

Emeralds have been used as gemstones since ancient times and have been considered one of the most valuable gemstones since pre-Columbian times due to their high quality and scarcity at that time.

Designer Sarah Ysabel Dyne-Narici notes that emeralds have long been prized for their lush green hue, and in recent years the gem has become a popular choice of accompaniment to the classic diamond.

The engagement ring trends for 2024 are still being shaped, as only a few years have passed since the last wave of new styles emerged. However, we can expect more of the same in terms of color and cut when it comes to diamonds. White and black diamonds still dominate the market, but emeralds may soon see an uptick in popularity due to their natural beauty and versatility when paired with other gemstones.
