While spring and summer are prime wedding seasons, November through February tends to be popular months to get engagement. If you’re looking to propose, or if you’re wondering if you’re going to be proposed to, there’s a good chance you’ve at least considered what kind of engagement ring you would love to have.

While the gorgeous classic engagement ring styles will always be in, every season brings in new engagement ring trends.

Read on to see four of the most gorgeous engagement ring trends that couples have been choosing this year.

The Unique Pear Shape

For brides looking for the perfect compromise between trendy and timeless, the pear shape diamond is flattering and creates an elongating effect on the hand. A pear cut diamond is both modern and vintage, all at once, which is why we think the pear shape engagement ring will be hugely popular in the following years.

Colored Gemstones

We’ve already seen rose gold bands soar in popularity the past few years, and the love of color isn’t slowing down any time soon. Colored gemstones in the place of classic diamonds are starting to pop up as a fresh alternative to a classic engagement ring. From pale blues to bright emeralds, colorful engagement rings are growing as a top choice for newly engaged couples.

Open Wrap Rings

This ring is far from traditional. Open rings are a cool style option for those looking for a totally unique and modern flair to their engagement ring. More and more brides are opting for an opportunity for personalization that comes with open wrap rings.

East West Settings

This style is becoming more and more popular as brides search for something unique, while still maintaining a classic appearance. Almost every shape can be set this way, from a marquise or oval to a pear or emerald-cut stone. The emerald cut with an East West setting delivers an art deco feel with its sleek lines and clean cut while breathing life into the vintage classic.
