Three-stone engagement rings are enjoying a big resurgence for 2022, thanks to the myriad ways they can be styled. A beautifully symbolic setting, each stone represents past, present, and of course, future. No longer about three uniform shapes, today’s three-stone rings now feature a traditional center stone accompanied by fancy shape side stones— think half-moons, pears, or even marquise, to create a diamond effect that’s utterly unique. Consider mixing in heirloom stones or even a fancy cut center-stone to add to the ring’s story.

Vintage and heirloom styles take on new forms for 2022 in the perfect blend of classic meets contemporary. The emerald cut—a firm Art Deco favorite, is having a major moment right now thanks to its strong, clean silhouette that works in many settings. Other styles with heirloom vibes give a nod to the cocktail ring era such as the dazzling Dantela with its blooming crown—giving the effect of a larger center stone. And, you can always give a more modern setting an antique edge by incorporating heirloom diamonds into the ring design too.
With couples wanting their engagement ring to signify new depths in their love story, hidden details and love notes are a big engagement ring trend for 2022. Exquisite and unique tokens imbued with added layers of meaning, whether the subtle hidden bloom of our Founder’s Collection, diamonds on the prongs or inside detailing of a Crescent Fabric, these are rings that sparkle from the inside, out.

Minimal silhouettes that make maximum impact; striking simplicity is in for 2022. Think thinner bands, delicate center-stones, and gentle detailing for a quietly confident effect. Look to the classics, whether that’s a Simply Tacori emerald cut with pavé band for all the sparkle, or a Classic Crescent with its slender new Cathedral silhouette.
Still going strong for 2022, the stacking trend shows no signs of slowing down. Many couples choose to style their engagement ring as the center piece, flanked by a wider stack of rings—each representing a different part of their love story. And, whether gemstone-studded bands, delicate high-shine or pavé bands or even mixed precious metals, there really are no rules when it comes to curating your own stack. Let your love story shine out in the most exquisite and unexpected ways.
Fancy diamond shapes are still going strong into 2022 with pear, emerald, and oval cuts leading the charge. Popular for good reason, each boasts a larger surface area than the average round cut—meaning they appear bigger, so you get maximum sparkle. These particular fancy shapes also help elongate the finger, making them a more tempting silhouette for many. All three cuts are surprisingly versatile, so you can go as subtle or as a statement as you like with a fancy shape as your center-stone.
Enjoying a chic comeback, the warm, sun-drenched tones of yellow gold are proving to be an engagement ring favorite into 2022. A true style icon, its elegant vintage vibes and vibrant hue makes any center-stone and pavé detailing pop. It also makes for some fun styling potential with your wedding ring too if you want to mix metals and pair it with a white or rose gold band for a unique statement.

Ever enduring, always alluring, the solitaire reigns supreme year after year. For 2022, style your solitaire your way, in round brilliance or sparkling fancy shapes, and choose between more statement or delicate silhouettes, in cathedral or classic 360 settings, and finish with pavé or high-shine bands. "Solitaire rings are always a favorite. We like to add subtle and unique design elements to differentiate your ring from the rest," says Nadine.
