If you’re planning a Christmas or Summer proposal you may be considering some of the upcoming trends for 2022.

In the New Year, we’ll see a trend and an increase towards engagement ring designs like that seen in the Gerard McCabe Celeste Collection.

These designs feature a finer band, which can be Diamond set, with a larger, fancy-shaped, central stone.  Diamonds set in this design appear in all different shapes and sizes - with Pear-shape, Oval-shape and Cushion-shaped diamonds all popular choices. Alternatively, coloured gemstones such as Sapphires are on trend and available in a variety of shapes to suit her style. The finer band is a large part of the trend as are fancy-shaped gemstones in general.

What are our top wedding band picks for 2022?

Gorgeous fancy-shaped diamonds can be taken into your wedding band with the Embrace Marquise & Round Brilliant Diamond Linea Ring. The inspiration for the delightful wedding band lies in Celtic knots and twisting vines. The vine is represented in the White Gold twisted band, the mixture of round and marquise diamonds perfectly complements engagement rings that include either round or fancy shaped diamonds. The arrangement of the diamonds gives a feel of textured lace, which would complement a fine lace bridal gown. This gorgeous piece is also available in Yellow Gold.

Tantalum wedding bands are our top pick for men’s wedding bands for 2022. Tantalum is a strong dark metal that can be beautifully finished with yellow, rose or white gold.
