Smales Jewellers are thrilled to see the emergence of yellow gold engagement rings this year, however it isn’t the only trend turning heads in 2019. Here is our selection of some of the most exciting diamond ring designs trending now with forever in mind.
1. Trilogy Diamond Engagement Rings
Said to represent the past present and future, this style is timeless,understated and continues to be popular. Ever since Harry met Meghan the world fell in love with the three diamond engagement ring design with many customers designing their own. Selecting with high quality diamonds such as Hearts on Fire diamonds & combining this with incredible craftsmanship, trilogy diamond rings are definitely worth considering.

2. Coloured Gemstones
Coloured gemstones in engagement rings are still making headlines in social circles of recent times. Do you remember the pinkish red padparadscha sapphire ring worn by Princess Eugenie last year ? The allure of its rich bold tones had everyone talking, and the style surrounded with diamonds had heads turning.
This year, colour will remain prominent but not centre stage. Its design will be in the details, rubies set in a pave band, emeralds on either side of a white diamond – the possibilities are endless making this trend one to follow.
3. Yellow Gold
Yellow gold has made a comeback this year with more and more clients requesting this precious metal in everything from pendants to bangles. This trend was lost a decade ago when the shift to white gold appeared to be more contemporary and fresh. Now this silent star is rising, symbolising richness and luxury this trend is shown to stand the test of time.
4. Pink Diamonds
Pink diamonds are known to be feminine and beautiful. The value of a pink diamond is not something unknown to many and with its rarity in the market, owning a pink diamond engagement ring is still what dreams are made of.

5. Bespoke Jewellery: Hidden Pave
Design is in the detail and at Smales Jewellers this is very much the truth, especially with many handmade jewellery orders outlining subtle detail.
Classic, contemporary, art deco or even traditional, diamond engagement rings with hidden detail are unique, and unassuming. Diamond detailing or an accent gallery maybe the very difference from a "MEH” engagement ring to a “OMG” engagement ring for many years to come.

6. Diamond Stacked Bands
Any bride would tell you owning a beautiful diamond ring is wonderful but having the wedding band to match is another.
A well curated wedding band is not only well planned but also aesthetically seamless when worn with an engagement ring.
Eternity bands, anniversary bands and first baby bands are added to symbolise the test of time and will definitely become beautiful heirlooms for the next generation. Hearts on Fire Lady Di Band RRP 2200
7. Diamond Twist Bands
Bands are really making a statement this year, from shimmering strands of pavé diamonds entwined with a lustrous ribbon of precious metal to asymmetrical twists highlighting a centre diamond. Originating from the eternity symbol these bands are elegant and soft in design yet beautiful in appearance.HOF Destiny Twist Engagement Ring RRP 21,000
8. Men's Engagement Rings
Last but not least men’s engagement rings are on the increase. With so many options on offer it is an exciting new market trend which is on the rise. One carat solitaires set within a platinum band or diamond band has been the most popular, however we are we excited to see more requests on bespoke men’s engagement rings in the near future.
