Going beyond the classics

Whether it’s the wedding gown, a lineup of bridesmaid dresses, or a rehearsal dinner look, modern brides are opting for the unexpected more and more. From color to the silhouette, it’s often the uncommon choice that is the popular one for a totally stand-out bridal moment. An area that’s gaining much traction in the realm of the unanticipated is engagement rings. Brides-to-be are narrowing in on unique cuts, modern settings, and even eschewing diamonds altogether. One of the biggest engagement ring trends this year? Hexagon-shaped engagement rings.

Geometric and fresh, a hexagon engagement ring is the epitome of modern—the angular shape is extraordinarily eye-catching on the finger. Like with many ring styles, options run the gamut for a hexagon-shaped engagement ring, plus, not all are actually cut into a hexagon shape, but are simply placed into a setting to make various cuts seem more geometric.

For diamonds actually cut into this shape, choose from step-faceted diamonds in a minimal setting or a solitaire accompanied by side baguettes on a thin pavé band. A colored diamond or gemstone in a hexagon cut is striking, too—if you venture down this path, we’d be willing to bet you won’t find another bride-to-be with the same ring. Modern bands like an X-shaped band, double band, or split-shank are another way to set off a hexagon-shaped engagement ring—Eva Fehren is synonymous with this type of design. The brand also crafts bands intended for stacking for an extremely one-of-a-kind look.

Hidden halos where the diamond is actually set above the halo are a great way to showcase a hexagon diamond whether you’re one for yellow, rose, or white gold. Another less-than-standard look is a hexagon-shape diamond in a signet setting—we’re seeing this a lot more in 2018 and expect the look to trend more and more with modern brides.

Round and rose-cut diamonds are often set in hexagon settings, but appear just as angular when accented by a halo or fleet of baguette stones. Certain prong styles will amplify the look of a hexagon ring, too—a suitable detail for edgy brides.

Brides with an affinity for antique rings are in luck, too. Art deco and Gregorian styles come with hexagon-shaped stones like a round old-cut diamond flanked by rectangular baguettes or a hexagon-shaped sapphire ornately set in 18-karat gold and platinum with a few teensy diamond accents—we definitely advocate for this type of two-tone metal ring with extra shine.

If you’ve been looking for a unique diamond shape for your engagement rings, ahead, we’ve pulled together an edit of 38 hexagon-shaped engagement rings to inspire you.
