1) Three Stone Design

Why have one stone when you can have three? Ever since Meghan Markle sported a three stone engagement ring, future brides have been following suit.


Not only do the three stones represent the couple’s past, present and future, they also present the opportunity to have a combination of diamonds, gemstones, shapes and sizes.

2) Pear Cut


Pear shaped center stones have become increasingly popular over recent years, and for good reason. This unique option adds an artistic element to any design and creates a world of opportunity when it comes to stacking your rings.


If pear shaped stones are good enough for the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Amal Clooney, they’re good enough for us. The term ‘pear shaped’ has never had such positive connotations.

3) Coloured Stones

Be it the main stone or as a side stone, it’s never been more on trend to introduce a pop of colour into your ring. 

4) French Basket

6) Halo Design

Despite taking inspiration from vintage eras, diamond halo settings are more relevant and popular than ever.


The intricate detailing looks perfect when paired with an oval shape, but looks just as sensational when set around a number of different shapes such as round and pear. This glamorous halo dresses the center stone perfectly, making it appear incredibly lush.

7) Yellow Gold
