Three words: oval engagement rings.  Oval engagement rings like this white gold Aria Diamond Ring setting is one of the most sought after engagement trends we’re seeing on Instagram—and we don’t foresee this fading anytime soon! Three stone engagement rings featuring fancy shaped side stone accents are also majorly on trend – and the likes reflect that.

11. Four-Prong Petite Comfort Fit

Our audience is loving surprise and hidden diamond details, like the sparkling hidden halo of the Secret Halo Diamond Ring. Diamond accents that peek out from under the center gem add something special to classic solitaire ring settings.

8. Six-Prong Classic Ring

Who doesn’t love a classic solitaire diamond ring (especially when positioned next to a cute dog nose!)? It’s hard to tell whether it was the dog or the Six-Prong Classic Ring that everyone loved, but we like to think it was both!

7. Pear Shaped Diamonds

Pear cut diamonds, also known as “teardrop” diamonds, add an element of distinction to any ring. The shape has long been favored by style icons, including Victoria Beckham, Katherine Heigl, and Elizabeth Taylor — who famously received a 69.42 carat(!) pear shaped diamond from her then-husband Richard Burton. The diamond halo and delicate accented band of the Waverly Diamond Ring in this Instagram post highlight the sparkling center pear shaped stone.

6. Petite Elodie Ring

At once modern and vintage in feel, rose gold engagement rings make a distinctive, beautiful choice. This warm hued precious metal has been rising in popularity, and is flattering to many skin tones. This Lumiere Diamond Ring pictured here embodies some of our most popular engagement ring photo trends: rose gold, oval diamonds, hidden diamond details, and an adorable puppy!

When looking at our most loved Instagram posts, it’s clear to see that oval diamond engagement rings with delicate diamond details are a winning combination! This classic engagement ring features sparkling scalloped pavé diamonds that extend three-fourths of the way around the ring.

Hidden halo engagement rings are definitely a fan favorite! The Haven Diamond Ring features a glittering hidden halo of staggered diamonds that wraps around the center gem while a petite band complements the gallery for a chic look

1. Ballad Diamond Ring

Even in the dim glow of twilight, the fire and brilliance of the oval center diamond of this Ballad Diamond Ring can’t be hidden! As you can tell by their inclusion in the majority of our most loved Instagram photos, oval shaped diamonds are extremely popular, and we anticipate this trend will stay strong for years to come. Oval diamonds cover more surface area, which can make your center diamond appear larger than a round diamond of similar carat weight. You can browse our current selection of oval cut diamonds here!
