Engagement Rings Through The Decades

As time goes by, styles and trends constantly evolve and it’s no different for engagement rings. Through the decades we’ve seen certain styles, metals and stones dominate with many factors influencing their popularity. We’ve even seen several rings go out of style, and then make huge comebacks, and we consistently see this cycle through the years.

The history of engagement rings

We’ve put together this timeline to highlight what style of engagement rings have been the most popular throughout the years, taking you from the 1940s, right the way through to the present day. We highlighted all the engagement ring trends throughout the decades in the timeline below, but for some more interesting facts about each make sure you check out the history of engagement rings.

Once we had all the information about the history of engagements rings, we wanted to put together our predictions on the future trends. We ran a study and surveyed 500 people who had either got engaged in 2020 or who are in the market to get engaged by the end of 2021 to understand the current and future engagement ring styles and trends.

We also spoke to the stunning bridal brand Emmy London to get their insight and thoughts on what we’re likely to see over the next year.

We put together more insight from the survey we carried out in the future of engagement rings article, so head there for some extra detail!
