Engagement Ring Styles: Engagement Ring Trends to Consider in 2024

'Cause if you like it, then you should put a ring on it! These are the engagement ring styles and trends to consider in 2024.


Be my rock. Be my forever. Is that the sound of upcoming wedding bells we hear? 

Unlike the fast-paced trends that keep your Instagram feed and online shopping tabs afloat, engagement ring styles tend to move to a subtler, more personalised beat.

Plus, when it comes to envisioning slipping the perfect engagement ring on your fingers, it's about so much more than a sign that you're soon to be married. It's also a key indicator of your personal style – or how your partner feels about and sees you. So, finding the perfect ring can be a challenging process. 

Engagement ring trends in 2024 are poised to impress both minimalist mavens and bolder baddies. Options are diverse and jewellery brands and designers, the likes of Temple & Grace and Sarah & Sebastian run the gamut from traditional solitaire settings and modern Art Deco interpretations to tension-set bands and colourful stones.

That’s why designing or choosing your ring in a private, bespoke appointment is something many couples are opting for today. So, without further ado, we now pronounce these engagement ring styles as the ones to consider this year and beyond. 


Engagement Ring Styles: Vintage-Style Engagement Rings

Vintage-style engagement rings are a classic choice that will weather the test of time and trends. More and more brides-to-be are looking to bygone eras for a romantic and one-of-a-kind piece. Inspired by eras like Art Deco, Victorian, or Edwardian, these rings blend intricate craftsmanship with romantic aesthetics.

The appeal lies in their unique character, offering a departure from contemporary trends. Adorned with filigree detailing, delicate engraving, and often featuring precious gemstones, vintage-style rings symbolise a connection to the past, celebrating love with a touch of nostalgia. Choosing a vintage-inspired ring reflects a desire for enduring elegance and a commitment to lasting, sentimental beauty.

Engagement Ring Styles: Quiet Luxury

The "quiet luxury" movement was put on the map thanks to the blockbuster series Succession, and in 2024, the trend will only dominate more. When it comes to quiet luxury influencing engagement rings, it's all about embracing understated elegance over flashy displays.

Couples are increasingly drawn to simple, refined designs that prioritise quality and craftsmanship. This trend has ushered in a shift towards minimalist settings, emphasising the intrinsic beauty of high-quality materials like platinum or rose gold. Diamonds, often fewer in number but of exceptional clarity, take centre stage.

Engagement Ring Styles: Toi et Moi

Celebrating the luminescent love of twin flames. Toi et Moi is one of the most historic ring setting styles and one of the most sentimental engagement ring styles to consider. Considered one of the most romantic styles of all time, its appeal is summed up in its name, meaning 'you and me’.

Designed to symbolise love stories and partnerships, the iconic style incorporates two main stones into the design placed side by side, symbolising the union and devotion of two people.
