Split shank engagement rings
Another band-focused engagement ring trend is the split shank ring.
Another royal engagement ring, that of Zara Tindall, is of this style.
Laura said: “A split shank engagement ring is a very distinctive style we’re seeing increase in popularity, with a band that parts as it reaches the centre stone.
“The shape of the split shank frames the centre diamond beautifully, and as it’s the style of Beyoncé’s engagement ring, you’d be in good company.”
Beyonce’s huge cushion cut ring sits on two slender diamond pave bands.
Coloured stone engagement rings
Last but not least, a coloured stone may look like a unique choice than the diamond ring, but it is actually more traditional than a clear stone.
Laura said: “A classic style we anticipate still being popular in the coming year is coloured gems for the central stone. From birth stones to classic precious gems such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds, a pop of colour is a really eye-catching feature for an engagement ring.
“With its regal heritage, a sapphire is a timeless choice for an engagement ring with a splash of colour – think Kate Middleton’s iconic oval blue sapphire.”
Other famous engagement rings that featured coloured stones are a number of royal rings.
This includes Princess Eugenie, Princess Anne and Princess Margaret.
Boris Johnson proposed to Carrie Symonds with vintage emerald ring.
Actress Lily Collins recently became engaged with a stone from fiance Charlie McDowell. The ring features a pale pink rose-cut diamond.
