Top Engagement Ring Trends for 2021

View Concierge Diamonds’ collection of engagement rings that are on trend for 2021

Last year, many weddings were put on hold, but just because the world stopped doesn’t mean that love did! Even locked away in our homes, love flourished and 2021 has been a big year for proposals. People want to make sure that their special moment is extra special after the last year, so folks are on the hunt for new ideas on engagement rings. 

Here are eight engagement ring trends we’ve noticed this year from our clients: is one them right for you? 

Complete Customization of Your Engagement Ring 

At Concierge Diamonds, we custom make all of our jewelry pieces so we’re able to breathe life into any piece you can envision. And we see more couples adding special customizations to their engagement rings so it stands out in a sea of standard designs. 

Some clients opt to have a hidden birthstone set in the shank or create a custom engraving with a hidden message meant only for the bride! 

When you work with Concierge Diamonds on your engagement ring, you’re in control of the design and can dictate it to your own specifications.  This thoughtful customization sends the message that you know your partner well, and that you’re more than ready to take the dive into the rest of your lives together.

Bezel Set Engagement Rings 

Many of our clients are opting to put a modern twist on their classic designs and setting their rings in bezel style settings! These settings don’t use prongs and look almost vintage in their appearance. The idea with a bezel set ring is to put a new twist on a classic design, even if it looks like a vintage ring! Is a bezel set ring the right ring for you? Take a look at some of our past bezel set engagement rings and decide for yourself! 

Heirloom-Inspired Old European and Old Mine Cuts

Old European Cuts might be a good choice for those who like a vintage look and feel to their engagement rings.  Bonus: you can actually go lower in color with these classic stones because they hide color exceptionally well, meaning you can put your budget towards carat weight! These classic gemstones were cut by hand before modern technology enabled diamond cutters to cut stones precisely every time on the cutting wheel. 

These are a legacy to say the least, and having one of these on your hand will never go out of style! 

Petite side stones

Right after Meghan Markle’s engagement ring gained so much popularity, petite side stone rings were all people could talk about. Petite side stone engagement rings are a fresh take on a three stone ring that looks more modern and delicate and draws more attention to the center stone. We think this exquisite design will remain a popular choice for many years to come! 

North South East West

To see things differently, try looking at them sideways! East West set diamonds and North South East West prongs, also known as compass prongs, are definitely a hot trend this year (and beyond!). This setting is a great way to put a new spin on traditional classics.

Band Style Rings

Another way to make sure your ring stands out, is the current trend of the band style or shank rings. Instead of focusing on one center stone, these rings use multiple stones to create eternity bands that break with tradition but manage to sparkle just as brilliantly as standard engagement rings.  Any way you choose to customize your band style ring, know that it will make a very personal statement. 

Yellow Gold

A timeless classic! Yellow gold will always remain a fan favorite for jewelry lovers. This precious metal’s dense and warm hue has been a symbol of opulence and prosperity for ages and won’t be changing any time soon. This metal has been a traditional wedding ring element for years, primarily because of its luxurious reputation, and the fact that it won’t rust, tarnish, or corrode.


Give your ring a touch of Emerald City magic with this gorgeous gemstone reminiscent of the Art Deco era. Emerald stones are popular in fashion jewelry and are finding a place in bridal. This deep green gemstone is believed to bring exceptional health and wellness to its owner. 

Whatever your personal style, Concierge Diamonds can help you create the custom engagement ring of your dreams! Contact us here for a free consultation.
