Choosing the perfect wedding ring is no small feat—after all, it’s the one piece of jewelry you’ll wear for the rest of your life. Whether you’re in the market for an engagement ring that captures your unique style or an everyday band to complement your sparkler, there are plenty of options out there. But not all rings are created equal. This year, we’re seeing a number of trends that feel fresh and new, from an emphasis on sustainability to bold bands that can make even your most minimal stone stand out.

In fact, the biggest trend we’re seeing in 2024 is that people are willing to break away from tradition to find something truly meaningful. This could be anything from a gender-fluid ring with a textural detail to an open-band design that emphasizes your unique style. And, of course, if you’re a sucker for a good deal, you’ll be happy to hear that lab-grown diamonds are becoming more and more common as an affordable alternative to traditional diamonds.

While the classic round-cut engagement ring continues to be the most popular, many couples are looking for ways to add their own personal flair to this timeless staple. And that begins with the choice of metal. While most people still choose white gold—which saw a slight decline in popularity last year—there’s a growing interest in slightly unconventional finishes and textures like matte, satin, or hammered.

Another way that soon-to-be-weds are putting their stamp on their rings is with stacked styles, a trend that has seen considerable growth in popularity over the past few years. Stackable bands allow you to mix and match different metals, gemstones, and designs, creating a collection that tells the story of your love. You can also add new rings to celebrate special milestones like anniversaries or the birth of a child, letting your collection evolve with your relationship over time.

Of course, you can’t talk about wedding ring trends without mentioning the increasing popularity of colored gemstones. With a wide range of colors to choose from, these baubles offer the chance for you to infuse your ring with personal meaning while also showing off your bold sense of style.

And if you want to go all out with your sparkler, there are also a lot of options for those who love to surprise. This year, we’re seeing ring designs that are more than they appear, including hidden halos and delicate diamond-adorned petals beneath a center stone. And of course, we’re also seeing a spike in interest in non-diamond precious stones like sapphires.

The bottom line is that there’s never been a better time to be a bride or groom than right now. With options for every kind of personality, you can be sure that your ring will reflect your unique style—and your commitment to one another. So get out there and start shopping! You’ll be glad you did.
