Engagement Ring Style Trends in America for 2024

As we step into 2024, there is one rule - there are no rules.

The world of engagement rings continues to evolve, offering an array of stunning styles that reflect individual tastes and emerging trends. From classic elegance to modern chic and avant-garde designs, couples in America are embracing a diverse range of designs to showcase their love and commitment. 

This year, we are seeing more and more bold choices with a demand for unusual styles, think curves, heavy yellow gold settings and sustainable diamonds.

Let's explore the top 6 engagement ring style trends currently captivating hearts across the United States in 2024.

 

1. Curved Engagement Ring Style

The most exciting trend we are seeing, that we absolutely love in America's engagement rings is an unusual curved band, with diamonds often sitting in an east-west setting or held by the curved gold ring without prongs.

Whether in a crossover style or a diamond sitting atop a curved ring, the style is very feminine and shows off the diamond perfectly. It is unusual and it is striking, although the elegance on the hand makes it a strong future classic.

Scarlett Johansson's engagement ring, given to her by now-husband Colin Jost, features an incredible 11 carat light brown antique cut pear shape diamond nestled on a curved black ceramic band.

Heavy gold curves are in as well as the use of ceramics and use of other gemstones blended into the band such as moonstone, emeralds or black diamonds.

A curved engagement ring is like no other. A bold striking choice and we love to create this style for our clients. And don't forget to customise a wedding band to match your engagement ring. 

 

2. Vintage Inspired Engagement Rings

Vintage inspired engagement rings are making a grand comeback, evoking the romance and timeless elegance of bygone eras. Intricate filigree details, milgrain edges, and intricate halo settings adorned with sparkling diamonds are all the rage. These rings celebrate nostalgia while adding a touch of sophistication to any proposal.

Vintage and antique style diamonds such as old mine cut, old European cut and antique cushion cut diamonds are also in high demand in today's engagement rings. Due to the rarity of the real antique diamonds, the demand hugely outstrips their supply, luckily our worldwide suppliers can always help us find that perfect diamond for you.

 

3. Unique and Unusual Diamond Shapes

America is breaking away from traditional round diamonds. In 2024, bold and unique shapes are captivating brides-to-be. Oval, pear, and marquise cut diamonds are particularly popular, offering a modern twist on classic elegance. 

New fancy diamond shapes that are trending are portrait cut diamonds and unusual vintage style diamond cuts - such as moval and antique style cushions. All of these chunky faceted styles are very popular with American brides-to-be. 

Fancy shaped diamonds are celebrated for their individuality and ability to make a striking statement on the hand, reflecting the unique personality of the wearer. These are particularly great when wishing to create unique engagement rings, such as a snake diamond ring.

 

4. Mixed Metal Magic - Gold and Platinum

Yellow and rose gold are definitely picking up popularity in 2024 for engagement rings. Mixing metals is a trend that continues to grow for couples seeking distinctive engagement rings. Combining warm tones of yellow gold with cool hues of platinum or white gold creates a stunning contrast that adds depth and character to the ring design and the stones.

Two-tone rings offer versatility, allowing brides to effortlessly complement their existing jewellery collection and mix and match.

At Valentina Fine Jewellery, we love creating two tone engagement rings, it is very complimentary on the hand, shows striking contrast and makes your diamonds or gemstones pop.


5. Minimalist Chic Engagement Rings

In contrast to elaborate designs, minimalist engagement rings are still popular with their understated elegance and simplicity. Sleek bands adorned with a single, exquisite diamond or a minimalist setting exude sophistication and classic beauty. These engagement rings are perfect for those who appreciate clean lines and timeless beauty, making them the perfect choice for modern couples.

Meghan Markle's engagement ring from Prince Harry epitomises minimalist chic, with its sleek clean design featuring a simple band and a cushion cut diamond flanked by two side diamonds.
