Christmas is already magical – making it the perfect time to pop the question. But which engagement ring styles will be sparkling the brightest in 2022?
We've looked at this year’s top five trends and visited our Festival Place jewellers to help you find the perfect little box of dreams to pop under the Christmas tree this year.
Toi Et Moi
Multi-stone engagement rings have been popular in celeb circles recently – with Ariana Grande, Megan Fox and Emily Ratajkowski all opting for double-stoned rings in unique combinations of diamonds and gemstones. Toi et Moi means ‘you and me’ in French, and the double stone showcases the coming together of two people as a couple.
Slim and stylish
The finer the band, the better it will show off a beautiful diamond or coloured stone. Keeping it slim and minimalist gives a pared back, elegant look perfect for those who prefer a classic choice.
Pandora: Sparkling teardrop halo ring, £80
A single, central stone surrounded by smaller stones gives a unique blend of vintage design and dazzling sparkle. Central diamonds are cut in elegant shapes such as oval, pear, square, cushion and emerald. For extra sparkle, choose double halo designs with encrusted bands.
Beaverbrooks: 9ct White Gold Diamond Heart Cluster Halo Ring, £850
An increasingly popular choice for brides-to-be who want a more striking centre stone than the traditional white diamond. Jennifer Lopez most recently opted for a stunning green diamond, but blue, pale pink and yellow are also the top of the list.
Goldsmiths: 9ct White Gold Blue Topaz and Diamond Ring, £375
Continuing to grow in popularity, many brides are opting for contemporary rings with Art Deco design motifs such as clean bold lines, geometric patterns and unusual cuts of diamonds such as kites and baguettes.
