This year one of the biggest themes of most predicted trends is a unique element. Many couples are opting to put their own personal spin on their engagement ring and make it individual to them. Non-Traditional rings are on the rise and creating your own bespoke ring has never been easier. Keep reading to see some of the main engagement ring trends of 2023!
Bigger Centre Stones
Many people have begun going for bigger rings, more carats. Lab diamonds have risen in popularity due to their affordability in comparison to natural diamonds resulting in larger diamonds being much more accessible. We see this continuing into the new year, with people jumping at the chance to get their dream ring within their budget.
Lab-grown diamonds have the exact same properties as a mined diamond allowing you to get a higher clarity/carat for significantly less. Additionally, Moissanite stones have the same benefit, being as sparkly as a diamond with a lower price tag. Browse our Lab and Moissanite engagement rings.
Toi Et Moi and Cluster Rings
Toi et Moi rings date all the way back to the 18th century, but have been seen all over celebrities’ hands lately, such as Emily Ratajkowski, Kylie Jenner and Megan Fox. Featuring two stones side-by-side rather than a single centre stone, this type of engagement ring is predicted to have a continued growth in popularity. Read our article on Toi et Moi rings here to learn more about them. On a similar note, engagement rings featuring clusters of multiple gemstones appear to be on the rise. Likely due to the rise in alternative styles and the affordability of different stones and lab-grown diamonds.
We predict a major rise of eternity rings as engagement rings or wedding bands, even as male engagement rings. With a rise in non-traditional rings some women are opting for a full band of diamonds rather than the classic solitaire diamond. Many women who aren’t interested in the style of one larger stone, but still want that sparkle of a diamond and a separate engagement ring are now opting for simply stunning eternity bands. Eternity rings represent the never-ending love between two people, look at our range of eternity bands or begin to create your bespoke ring today.
Rings with a step-cut such as emerald and baguette cuts have been really rising in popularity recently and will only continue to, likely due to their mesmerising effect of staring into infinite mirrors. Step cut diamonds and gemstones look stunning with a more vintage design, or to bring a unique element to a more modern setting, either way a step cut is a beautifully elegant choice. Browse our collection of Emerald-cut rings.
Non-traditional Gemstone rings
For a while now, engagement rings with an alternative gemstone have been on the rise and we don’t expect this to stop anytime soon! Stones such as a rich blue sapphire, an alternatively coloured diamond or a beautiful pink morganite are becoming increasingly sought after by many brides-to-be. Having an eye-catching coloured gemstone can draw instant attention to your ring and allows you to show off your favourite colour, your birthstone or your partners birthstone, every day.

Ethical Engagement Rings
Sustainability and being more ethical is becoming more important to people, as the planet is struggling with climate pollution and climate change. So, people are trying everything they can to do better for the environment.
This includes switching plastic bags with paper, you bar products instead of plastic bottles and now even engagement rings.
If you haven’t heard of lab diamonds, they are a more sustainable and ethical for the planet than a natural diamond. This is because they are grown and created in a lab. They are exactly the same a natural diamond. The only difference is how they are formed and the price.
A lab diamond is around 50% less expensive than a natural diamond. Meaning you can get a bigger diamond for a more affordable price. At Avita we have a gorgeous selection of lab diamond engagement rings.So, if you want a more ethical engagement ring, check out our range the website.

The moissanite gem is the most popular gemstone. With the moissanite stone you get the exact same as diamond but for less. They are also very sparkly and do not scratch easily as well.
