3 Exciting Engagement Ring Trends For 2021

3 Exciting Engagement Ring Trends For 2021

Not even the pandemic can stop love, and as restrictions ease and people head back out into the world, some are preparing to pop the big question to their loved ones.

Engagement rings have become more creative over the years, as couples seek spectacular designs to express their love for each other. It has led to the rise of quite a few trends, such as yellow diamonds, but we have a look at three popular trends for engagement rings.

 

The personal touch

The pandemic led many people to try to find ways to take back control of their lives, and personalised engagement rings are representative of that need for control. People are engaging with designers to craft the perfect ring that will not only be unique but truly express meaningful love to their partner, with hidden messages of love that only they will understand.

People are always looking for ways to do things differently, and engagement rings are no different. Styling the ring with designers is the perfect way to add extra love and meaning behind the proposal. 

 

Band style rings

In lieu of the traditional single stone engagement ring, band style rings have grown in popularity in recent years. Instead of having separate engagement and wedding rings, many couples are choosing rings that have multiple bands and stones that can be used for both purposes.

During the pandemic, the need for regular hand washing and sanitising has led to people needing to clean their current rings more, which could be the reason why single rings have become more popular.

 

Classic Styles

With people unable to visit jewellers during the lockdown at the height of the pandemic, people turned to online shopping, which has given way to the rise of classical styles. With people unable to view rings in person, they tended to play it safe with traditional and timeless styles.

Top Tips For Cleaning Earrings

The right pair of earrings can do so much to elevate an outfit and frame a face. However, because they not only go on but into your ear, they must be kept clean and healthy.

Besides the possibility of infection, jewellery can become dull and discoloured, losing its impact and dulling its immaculate shine.

Thankfully, with some patience, care and a gentle touch, you can get your beautiful earrings to look like new, whether they are tiny studs, classic gold hoops or elaborate costume statements.

 

Know Your Stones

Typically, a soft polishing cloth, suitable for polishing glass as well as a tiny amount of non-antibacterial soap and warm water is perfect for cleaning your earrings. Bathe them in the water for a brief time and wipe them down using the polishing cloth.

Different stones need different treatments, however, as some types of natural gemstone are more prone to absorbing dirt and water, due to being more porous.

Most stones can be cleaned with a soft, damp polishing cloth, whilst stones such as emerald, turquoise and pearl should be cleaned with a dry soft cloth.

 

Deep Clean Every Month

In an ideal world, you would clean your earrings every day before you wear them, but with daily pieces that may not be realistic. Instead, gently polish them every few days and give them a deeper clean every few weeks.

 

Store Separately

Store each earring separately from the other. Most jewellery boxes are designed to allow this. As well as this, if you have a lot of humidity, place a packet of silica gel or other desiccant crystals to stop them from tarnishing.
