- Hidden Halo rings
We have all heard of the halo design engagement rings, but what’s new is the hidden halo design that has recently hit the markets this year.The halo engagement ring has a small center stone surrounded by pave set tiny stones which are placed to make the center stone appear larger.

Although there is not much change in the appearance, the added glow and sparkle is sure to catch the attention of anybody.
- Black Diamond rings
The black diamond gemstones were not very popular until recently and black diamond rings are trending in 2020. Because of their out of ordinary appearance and aura, there has been a renewed interest in black diamond especially when it comes to engagement rings.The most trending design with regard to the black diamonds is the black diamond eternity rings.

The use of black diamonds with a contrasting yellow gold metal not only makes the get up of the rings unusual and unexpected but also gives it a fashion forward vibe. Not just as eternity rings, but black diamonds paired with contrasting metals and stones in a multi stone ring or a pave set ring also look very chic and stylish.
- Two tone rings
A refreshing take on the color of the metal structure and a personal favorite is the introduction of the two tone rings. Two tone rings are basically stacked rings having different metals or a metal structure which contrasts the center stone so that it appears as two different colors. These rings are trending because they offer you room to play with the details of the rings by mixing and matching the color of the stone and the metal structure and choosing something that appeals to you and is unique at the same time. For example, when you are buying a diamond ring with a platinum setting, you can add a thin yellow gold or rose gold metal band to make it a stacked ring. The platinum metal easily blends with the colorless diamonds but the addition of the gold band will not only add warm vibes to the ring but also make it stand out. If do not wish to opt for stacked rings, then choosing a contrasting metal color like platinum for black diamond or yellow gold for colorless diamonds will add elegance and beauty to the ring.
- Signet style rings
An old favorite that has recently made its way back into the spotlight is the signet style engagement rings. As more and more people work from home during the pandemic, the focus is shifting towards a ring that is in flush with the fingers and is comfortable to wear not leaving behind the stylish part.
