Characteristics of Modern Engagement Rings
When we distinguish modern engagement rings, we’re immediately creating a contrast between them and vintage or classic rings. But what does it mean to have a “modern” engagement ring? Here at The Wedding Ring Shop, you’ll find hundreds of different modern engagement rings from top designers in the industry, which can give you clear insight into the trends that distinguish contemporary design: Minimalism, maximalism, reinterpretation of vintage elements, and modern settings. Whether you’re searching for something dainty or something vivacious, you can be confident that there’s a modern engagement ring ready to impress you.
Popular Modern Engagement Ring Collections
Minimalism has been a big trend in contemporary jewelry design for over a decade now, and it finds its apotheosis in some of our favorite designers’ engagement ring collections. For example, when you browse the Love collection from Michael M, you’ll discover pieces with smooth, minimal shanks that lead to a head whose swooping prongs that not only lift and accentuate the center stone, but add light in the form of pave-set side diamonds. On the other hand, the maximalism of the Tacori Sculpted Crescent collection pairs center stones with layers upon layers of interwoven diamonds, filigrees, and milgrain beading to elegantly dizzying effect.
Additional Modern Engagement Ring Collections
Reinterpretation of vintage jewelry is another big trend in contemporary jewelry, and we’re partial to how Noam Carver does this with his Bezel collection. Bezels are a particularly vintage touch, but by pairing the design with modern elements like princess-cut diamonds, white gold, and tapered shanks, the old is made dazzlingly new once again. We also suggest that if you’re looking for an engagement ring that screams “modern,” you take a look at A. Jaffe. In addition to their line of bezel-set diamond rings, their Classics collection features the contemporary cool of channel-set diamonds made to accentuate the center stone in a striking manner.
