If you’re looking for an engagement ring for your proposal, finding the best design to symbolize your love and match your loved one’s personality can be a real challenge. An engagement ring embodies your passion and how well you know your soon-to-be fiancé. Of course, a little inspiration from your sweetheart’s favorite celebrity icon certainly couldn’t hurt!

To help you make the best decision, we’ve put together a list of this year’s trends to help you understand what kind of rocks today’s celebs are rocking. Let’s take a look at the top 10 trendiest engagement rings from the past decade for inspiration. 

Tips for Buying an Engagement Ring in 2024

When you’re on the search for the perfect ring, one of the top approaches is to familiarize yourself with the current engagement ring trends. Here are some things to look for this year, according to Brides:  

Heirloom Stones

Choosing an heirloom stone is a great way to add significance to your proposal. In 2017, Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with a ring steeped in personal significance. The ring features a large center diamond from where they vacationed on their first date (Botswana) and two smaller diamonds surrounding it from his mother, Princess Diana’s, collection.

You may even modify your heirloom piece to fit a particular aesthetic. For example, Markle has since redesigned the ring Prince Harry gave her to feature a thin micro-pavé band.

Solitaire Settings

Solitaire settings will continue to trend in engagement rings. According to the experts, “Their simple, yet elegant, silhouette showcases the beauty of the single center stone, creating a focal point that exudes sophistication and understated beauty.” Here at Bromberg’s, we’ve found this to be absolutely true. Solitaire settings are a timeless trend that’s here to stay!

Diamond Alternatives

This year, experts say gemstones like rubies, sapphires, white topaz, and emeralds will become even more popular. Because each gemstone has a unique meaning, you can personalize your choice to add greater significance to any proposal. 

Ring Stacks

Another trend you’ll see a lot of this year is ring stacks that incorporate multiple pieces into one engagement ring. They come in various styles, offering versatility and a trendy look that brides can easily add to and update over time. 

Unique Designs

Many brides and couples this year will be sporting non-traditional rings with uniquely cut gemstones, bezel settings, and heavier band ring designs. This trend supports couples looking for rings to match their unique personalities and tastes. 

Let’s examine how celebrities have set these trends over the past few years, and you’ll see why they are staying put for 2024. 

2024’s Top 10 Trendiest Engagement Rings

1. The Bachelor Engagement Ring

Joey Graziadei proposed to Kelsey Anderson during the March 2024 Bachelor finale with a simple yet elegant ring with a 4-carat Neil Lane emerald-cut diamond featuring one diamond in the center flanked by two other stones and 18 diamonds on the band. 

2. Jennifer Lopez

In 2022, Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez for a second time with an 8.5-carat green diamond ring. The gemstone is unique and flanked by two trapezoid-shaped white diamonds and surrounded by gold prongs. 

3. Beyoncé 

Though Beyoncé got engaged to Jay-Z in 2007, the choice continues to inspire the BeyHive. After all, she wears the 18-carat, emerald-cut solitaire on her ring finger to this day. This classic-looking ring remains trendy, although the $5 million gem is gorgeous and unique to the piece—another argument for a custom engagement ring crafted by a master jeweller’s hand. 

4. Zoë Kravitz

In October 2023, Zoë Kravitz was spotted wearing a cushion-cut diamond engagement ring with a bezel setting, mounted in 18k yellow gold and blackened white gold. This ring is an excellent example of how couples are balking traditional rings for bolder looks. 

5. Katy Perry

Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine’s Day in 2019. Perry’s ring matches her unique persona with a large pink stone at its center surrounded by eight round-cut diamonds. This ring shows how a piece can be crafted to highlight an individual’s personal tastes and unique character. 

6. Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel remains as interesting and unique a character as you will find in Hollywood. The New Girl star wears a ring featuring a purple sapphire and two diamonds, with two stones resembling a flower and the other shaped like a star. If your betrothed-to-be has unique tastes, our jewelers can help you find the perfect ring to rise to the occasion.

7. Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian’s engagement ring is also a uniquely interesting piece of jewelry with an elongated oval-shaped solitaire diamond ring on a pavé band. The elongated oval-shaped gem is a trend with staying power, as this design is favored among women who want a more elongated look to their fingers. 

8. Simone Biles

In 2022, Simone Biles got engaged to Jonathan Owens, who gave her an oval-cut engagement ring with a halo around the diamond. This ring was specially designed to represent the unique bond between these two individuals, and many others will be looking for rings that do the same thing for their engagement in 2024.

9. Emily Blunt

The ring John Krasinski gave Emily Blunt is unique while maintaining a classical look. Her ring features a three-carat, round-cut diamond set in platinum. The center stone is flanked by diamond baguettes and is paired with a pavé diamond wedding band. 

10. Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland showed off her halo diamond with a thin platinum pavé band on the Queen Latifah Show in 2013. Even though it’s been over a decade since this engagement was announced, the style of Rowland’s ring remains a staple in trendy engagement ring designs well into 2024.
