2020. It’s a year of promise and novelty, particularly since it’s the first tentative steps that the world of jewelry will be making into a new decade. Here at BARONS Jewelers, we’ve experienced the development of jewelry first-hand, and we’re intrigued by the shifts in aesthetics and the carry-overs that are beginning to characterize 2020. If you’re planning on getting engaged in 2020, you may be wondering what you should look for when searching for an engagement ring that will encapsulate the trends of the new year. Have no fear! We’re here to present the four big looks that we think will be ideal for ringing in the new 20s!
It’s important to start with yellow gold, because we suspect this is going to be a surprise explosion in the 2020s. Jewelers have, over the last two decades, been shifting to white gold as a standard, since it acts as a blank canvas on which colors and diamonds can be shown off cleanly. Rose gold also stole the show in the late 2010s thanks to its unique tone and feminine grace. However, a traditional yellow gold engagement ring will never go out of fashion—and we’ve been noticing that its sunny color has been seen on a lot of fashionistas’ hands lately.
ASSCHER AND EMERALD CUTS
The trend of “excavating the beauty of the past” continues with Asscher and emerald cut engagement rings. Similar to each other, these vintage cuts are known as step cuts thanks to their anterior facets creating a “hall of mirrors” effect of black and white in the stone. In an era when uniqueness is celebrated, a form of diamond cut that minimizes scintillation and fire in favor of a unique inner pattern is going to be highly regarded. If you get the chance to find a rose cut diamond ring—a much rarer shape—that also falls under this 2020 trend.
THE JOY OF COLOR
Emeralds, rubies, blue sapphires, as well as less common gems, such as morganite and pink sapphire, are set to make a splash in 2020. We’ve also seen quite a few women selecting their birthstones for their engagement rings and wedding bands. Really, the sky’s the limit when it comes to color in the new year. However, even if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for among the designer collections we showcase at BARONS Jewelers, don’t forget that we can custom design an engagement ring whose gemstones will perfectly match your personal aesthetic when it comes to bridal jewelry.
MINIMALISM + MULTIPLE STONES
Minimalism isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The trend of tightly packing beauty into a minimal space is something that we’ve seen going into 2020, but there are reasons to think that designers are beginning to find a little wiggle room in the aesthetic theory. For the most part, that wiggle room seems to be adding multiple stones to an engagement ring. A simple three stone engagement ring may be just the thing to celebrate the aesthetic of the year for years to come.
