Engagement ring stone, metal and setting trends for 2024

Though you may have an idea of what you’re looking for, it never hurts to keep your options open. “I would advise you to go in with an open mind when shopping for engagement rings,” said Dousset. “Once you start trying different ring styles on, it may surprise you which ones you end up gravitating toward. Styles you may have in mind might look completely different when trying them on.”

With that in mind, consider these popular ring trends for 2024:

Bezel settings

“Bezel settings will become increasingly popular in 2024,” noted Dousset. “This setting offers a sleek, modern twist on the traditional claw prong setting. With bezel-set engagement rings, the center stone is held in place by a metal rim or ‘bezel’ that surrounds the stone. Since no prongs or claws are holding the center stone in place, this setting makes it less prone to damage or stone loss.”

Yellow gold and mixed metals

“Consumers are not gravitating towards classic white metals as

The Best Tennis Jewelry To Sport This Season

All About Tennis Jewelry

Long before Kim Kardashian lost her diamond earring in the Bora Bora sea, former world No. 1 tennis champion Chris Evert lost a precious piece of tennis jewelry, her diamond bracelet, mid-match on the U.S. Open Court. She then refused to resume play until it was found (a completely justified response, if you ask us). 

Knowing the history behind a key wardrobe piece, for style or for sentiment, is an important fashion lesson. For years, diamond tennis jewelry, like tennis bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings, were regarded as aspirational jewelry pieces that were largely unattainable to the everyday shopper — more country club accouterments than outright fashion-forward accessories. Though we can admit, we understand why the ladies who lunch were so attracted to traditional tennis-style jewelry. Besides the obvious appeal of dripping in diamonds, the simplicity of these designs makes the thin, singular strands of sparkles extremely wearable. Sure, tennis jewelry looks great when styled with a swoon-worthy black tie ensemble, but its versatility allows these pieces to pair just as effortlessly with dressed-down, everyday looks.

Lately, some of our favorite style icons have been sporting the tennis jewelry trend in a more casual way— and acing it. In the past few months alone, we’ve seen cool-mom Gigi Hadid, new-age-trendsetter Sofia Richie Grainge, and the quick-witted Morgan Stewart McGraw pair their tennis bracelets and diamond necklaces with everything from bikinis to blue jeans. Other celebrities have pushed the trend one step further, accessorizing with non-traditional tennis-style rings, earrings, and even belly chains. 

Tennis jewelry, more so now than ever, is a category that’s easy to obsess over and one packed full of must-have, never-take-off pieces—those well-worth an ocean floor scour and a game-suspending search. Take it from Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, Hailey Bieber, Taylor Swift, and

Linear Thoughts

A doubled lariat style necklace at Ralph Lauren picks up the tailored approach to metallic dressing.

Walters Faith’s 18K rose gold and diamond boa necklace is top on the list of transformable necklaces. It can be worn in multiple ways- doubled and long like a lariat or tripled and connected together , or you can dangle your favorite charm from the bottom when worn as pictured.

Past Present

Fred Leighton 19th century antique diamond bib necklace with enamel pansies from the Art Nouveau period, which were added later. The necklace is set in silver-topped gold and is a rare piece from the past and a conversation starter.

Of the Cuff

Alberta Ferretti’s wide yellow gold cuff bracelet is one that is being translated by multiple designers.

Wempe’s 18K rose gold Electrify bangle bracelet is streamlined yet bold in it’s design.

Karma El Khalil 18K yellow gold Railway Cuff is on trend with the new direction toward wide hard bracelets and will become a go-to in your jewelry rotation.

Why Meghan Markle isn’t wearing her engagement ring – after having it redesigned to add MORE diamonds

MEGHAN Markle has been spotted without her engagement ring, leading many to wonder where it had gone.

But a source has revealed there’s a very good reason the Duchess of Sussex hasn’t been wearing her redesigned diamond band.

Prince Harry got down on one knee to propose to Meghan, 42, back in November 2017 with three diamond stones from his mother, Princess Diana’s own collection, set on a yellow gold band.

However, the ring in question has been missing from Meghan’s finger recently.

According to an unnamed source, the band of the ring is currently being fixed.

The original ring roughly cost Harry, 38, a staggering £120,000 to create with the help of British jewellers Cleave and Company.

The central diamond was sourced from Botswana, where the pair had their second date.

While it is claimed the ring is off for repairs, it isn’t the first time Meghan has had her ring changed.

In 2019, the ring was redesigned, instead of a gold band, the ring most recently sported by the Duchess featured a micro pavé band filled with smaller diamonds. 

Zach Stone, managing director at Steven Stone Jewellers estimates the central cushion cut diamond sourced from Botswana to be around 3 to 4 carats.

He added that the two round diamonds supporting the centre stone,

Diamonds, Sapphires, Beetle Wings? Piaget’s New High Jewelry Watches Are Wearable Odes to Nature.

Piaget occupies a rare niche in the luxury world. It specializes in micro-thin mechanical watchmaking on the one hand, and high jewelry watches on the other, which are often introduced as part of high jewelry collections. It’s easy to imagine Piaget’s gem buyers out there competing with teams from Bulgari (which shares both specialties), to scoop up the world’s top gems. While both are masters of gem-setting and micro-horology, Piaget places a special emphasis on mixing gems with metiers, particularly inlay and marquetry using ornamental stones and exotic materials. The Metaphoria collection—inspired by nature’s metamorphoses—is 52 pieces strong, including 41 jewelry creations and 11 watches, most of which are one-of-a-kind.

Piaget says the goal of this collection was to emphasize details of natural phenomena, such as the flow of a waterfall, the colors of the forest, or the rays of the sun, all within the house’s signature style, which is festive, elegant, and unique. It accomplished the goal using ingredients from nature itself: coral, turquoise (which in high-quality grades is shaping up to be a favorite gem in high jewelry collections this year), lapis lazuli, petrified wood, and even elytra (beetle’s wings) along with diamonds and precious metals.

Piaget Alata Cuff Watch, Ring Ear Cuff and Earring, and Ring

Piaget Alata Cuff Watch, Ring Ear Cuff and Earring, and Ring

The collection is divided into subsets of pieces meant to be worn together, with high-jewelry watches sprinkled into the mix. The leaf-themed Alata set includes a cuff watch, with leaf-shaped pieces of hand-engraved yellow gold that are given Piaget’s special “decor palace” finish – a kind of organic version of guilloché that resembles tree bark. Yellow gold leaves are folded together over the cuff in layers with mother-of-pearl marquetry and white gold pieces set with round and marquis-shaped diamonds. Matching pieces include a necklace, ring, and a spectacular
