When it comes to emerging engagement ring trends, we figured looking at the number of pins per board was a better reflection of engagement with a trend than just total pins. Our thought process? The above may have fewer boards about them, but users are pinning them more regularly.
Gemstone engagement rings (208 pins per board) were our second most popular trend overall, and show up as our most engaging ring trend, too! Why are gemstone engagement rings so popular? We think it’s because of the endless shimmering options. From sapphires and rubies to amethysts, aquamarines, and more, these rings are a colorful, creative way to express your unique love story.
With their delicate glow and irresistible allure, engagement rings with a rose gold band (158 pins per board) add a contemporary twist to the traditional engagement ring. So, if you’re ready to pop the question, why not do it with a hint of pink?
Pear-shaped diamond engagement rings (118 pins per board) are another emerging trend worth digging into. The unique cut of the diamond on these rings, sometimes meant to mirror tears of joy, will give your ring a distinctive look that will draw eyes from across the room.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the emerging trend of men’s engagement rings (116 pins per board). Both partners in a relationship wearing engagement rings symbolizes their commitment to each other and the strong bond they share.
