While engagement ring trends evolve at a slower pace than the regular fashion cycle, there's still plenty to keep up with in terms of what’s popular each year. For 2019, everything from unique diamond cuts to East-West and rose-gold settings are some of the most popular non-traditional styles while classic solitaire and three-stone rings are favored by many modern brides. It all depends on your aesthetic, which can certainly change over time, just as it does with the rest of the clothing and accessories in your wardrobe.
Sometimes, a big part of the decision-making process is where you want to buy your engagement ring from and whether or not you want to work with a designer one-on-one to create a completely customized design. Of course, price is a major factor when it comes to shopping for an engagement ring, but whatever your budget or design preference is, there is a worldwide retailer that offers it all: Etsy.
Known for being the go-to retailer for unique and creative goods from around the globe from home décor, clothing, and party decorations to wedding-specific categories like flower crowns, invitations, bridesmaid gifts, and, of course, engagement rings. The website has everything under the sun from delicate and dainty styles to popular cushion-cut stones and baguette bands as well as budget-friendly options like under-$1,5000 rings all the way to diamond alternatives like moissanite, morganite, white sapphires, and more.
