In 2024, engagement ring trends are evolving to reflect the diverse preferences and styles of couples. Follow along with us at Soha Diamond Co., as we explore some popular trends shaping the engagement ring scene so far this year. 

Elongated Cushion Cut Diamonds and Radiant Cut Diamonds 

If you feel like you have been seeing more and more elongated cushion cut diamonds and radiant cut diamonds, it’s because you are! This year, the elongated cushion cut and radiant cut are taking over the engagement ring world.

An elongated cushion cut diamond is a variation of the classic cushion cut diamond shape that has been elongated along one or both of its axes. The cushion itself is characterized by rounded corners and larger facets, giving it a soft, romantic appearance with plenty of sparkle. When the cushion is elongated, it means that the length-to-width ratio of the diamond has been adjusted to create a more oblong or rectangular shape while still retaining the basic features of the cushion cut. This elongation can vary in degree, from subtle to more pronounced, depending on the specific diamond. 

Elongated cushion cut diamonds offer a unique blend of vintage charm and modern sophistication. They tend to appear larger than traditional cushion cuts of the same carat weight due to their elongated shape, making them an attractive choice for those seeking a diamond with a bold and elegant presence on the finger. 

On the other hand, a radiant cut diamond is a square or rectangular-shaped diamond with trimmed corners, known for its brilliant facets and dazzling sparkle. It combines the elegance of a classic emerald cut with the sparkle of a round brilliant cut, making it a popular choice for engagement rings. 

Radiant cut diamonds feature step-cut facets and brilliant-cut facets, which creates exceptional brilliance and fire, giving the diamond a radiant sparkle. These diamonds can be square or rectangular in shape, with a length-to-width ratio that can vary depending on personal preference. Some prefer a more square shape for a classic look, while others opt for a more elongated rectangular shape for a more modern aesthetic. 

Three-Stone Rings Featuring Unique Small Accent Stones

On the rise is another classic engagement ring with a more modern twist: a three-stone ring with smaller accent stones. A three-stone ring features three gemstones or diamonds set side by side on the band. These stones typically represent the past, present and future of a couple’s relationship, making the engagement ring not only a symbol of love and commitment, but also of the journey they’ve shared and the life they plan to build together. 

The center stone in a three-stone engagement ring is usually the largest and most prominent stone, symbolizing the present moment in the couple’s relationship. Flanking the center stone are two smaller stones, known as the side stones. Now more than ever, these smaller stones can be baguettes, or other fancy shapes, such as pear or trapezoid. These smaller stones represent the past and future of the couple’s relationship, symbolizing the love and memories they’ve shared and the journey they look forward to embarking on. 

Yellow Gold / Two-Tone with Yellow Gold and Platinum 

Classic but timeless: a yellow gold engagement ring. This engagement ring metal continues to be popular among couples. A yellow gold engagement ring is a type of engagement ring where the band and setting is made of yellow gold. It has been prized for centuries for its warm, classic appeal. Yellow gold used in engagement rings is typically an alloy of pure gold and other metals such as silver, copper, or zinc. The purity of gold is measured in karats, with 24k gold being pure gold. Common karat values for yellow gold engagement rings range from 14k to 18k, with 18k gold being 75% pure gold and 14k gold being 58.3% pure gold. 

Stepping into the spotlight this year is the two-tone engagement ring, a type of ring that features two different metal colors in its design. This contrast adds visual interest and dimension to the ring, making it stand out and offering a unique twist on traditional engagement ring styles. Two-tone engagement rings commonly feature combinations of yellow gold with platinum, but can feature rose gold, as well. The contrast between the metals can be subtle or pronounced, depending on the desired effect. 

Two-tone engagement rings can come in a variety of designs and styles, from classic solitaire settings to intricate halo designs. The two-tone effect can be incorporated into the band, setting, or accents of the ring, offering endless possibilities for customization. 

These trends reflect the diverse tastes and values of couples so far in 2024, showcasing a range of options for creating the perfect engagement ring that celebrates love and commitment.
