Choosing a wedding ring can be one of the most exciting parts of the run-up to your big day. While this might not be something big and flashy like your venue or your dress, your ring is actually one of the most important and intimate choices you’ll make. It isn’t just for your wedding day; this is one piece of jewellery that you will be wearing for the rest of your life.
Here, we have collected three of the top trends in the world of wedding rings for 2022. Whether you want to go for something popular or classic, these trends will give you a little inspiration.
Sustainable jewellery is an increasing trend overall, with consumers in 2022 more interested than ever about where their jewellery comes from.
The provenance of your wedding ring might matter to you for both ethical and sentimental reasons – but when it comes to diamonds and other precious jewels, it is especially important to understand where the stones have come from.
Many jewellery companies work with ethical gem and precious metal suppliers. Make sure to pick carefully so that you can be assured that you’re choosing the perfect ring for you, while assuaging your environmental concerns.
Diamonds may be forever, but there are plenty more precious jewels out there to choose from. Stones in different colours can match your birthstone, or be a more accurate reflection of your personality. Now it is more popular than ever to choose different stones, such as rubies and emeralds. These can even be combined with diamonds in order to create a truly unique looking ring.
Sapphires are one of the most beloved gemstones in 2022, as they represent fidelity and love, while still being durable enough to stand the test of time. Whether alone or surrounded by smaller diamonds, sapphires can be an affordable and creative choice.
The metal you use for your ring can be as important as the jewel you choose – some wedding bands do not feature jewels at all. Mixed metal rings are becoming more and more common in 2022, creating a stunning and unique look. A multi-tonal style can be perfect for men and women, combining the best of two metals – ideal for anyone who wants a really contemporary look that still has that feeling of luxury. Not only that, but mixed metal rings can also be very strong and long-wearing. Bringing together gold and platinum is a highly regarded choice that can be subtle and charming, either with a thick or slender band.
With these three trends in mind, it may be a little easier to choose a ring you will be happy to wear for the rest of your life. There are options for those who love to put a spin on traditional rings. Make sure when you are shopping for your unique wedding ring that you choose something that truly reflects your personal style and personality – and you will find a ring that you truly love.
