Blake Lively skyrocketed this trend with her engagement ring, and since then many celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Sarah Hyland were engaged with oval bling. Ovals are amazing because they show their carat weight well and are very flattering on your finger.
Plain yellow gold or platinum with pavé diamonds has definitely been the most requested ring style of the year. People are leaning toward a more classic/ timeless style while still having more of a dainty and modern twist.
The super-skinny solitaire, featuring a very thin 1.5mm band, is absolutely the most in-demand setting. Brides just fall in love with the thin delicate band because of its classic yet modern edge. It also makes the diamond really pop! The setting is timeless and amazing for stacking and styling with other rings.”
