Coloured Gemstones

A lot of young consumers are ditching traditional diamond engagement rings for something that shows a bit more of their personality. The coloured gemstone trend has been around for a while now and will continue into 2020. Think further than the more conservative yellow to purples, blues, reds and pinks. Consumers that want something unconventional are mixing things up with coloured gemstone like rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. Coloured gemstones can also be a lot cheaper than diamonds which is an added bonus for a lot of couples.

Lab Diamonds

Environmentally conscious consumers are looking away from mined diamonds and are opting for diamonds made in a lab. They have minimal impact on the environment and their origins are a lot more transparent. While this sustainable jewellery trend will pick up in 2020, the majority of consumers still prefer traditionally sourced gemstones.

Georgian Inspired

The Georgian era introduced the jewellery industry to cluster settings, pearl accents and rose cut diamonds. They will all be making an appearance in 2020 but with a modern twist. This is a ring for the classic bride that wants something that makes a statement without the flashy feel.

Classic Solitaires

Consumers are ditching the halo for a higher quality center stone. The minimalist solitaire makes for a simple and clean-cut ring that an increasing number of consumers will be requesting in 2020.
