From royal weddings to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, our culture is saturated with nuptial celebrations that are grand, frilly and over-the-top. But not every bride loves the large and luxurious. 

 

If your significant other is a minimalist at heart, what kind of engagement ring should you choose? We’ve tracked the trends and found an array of gorgeous ring styles to soothe the minimalist soul.

 

1 - East-West Designs

It’s astonishing how much a classic solitaire can change when the diamond is set in the east-west position instead of north-south. Take an elongated diamond, such as a marquise or an emerald-cut. When it’s set perpendicular to the band, it has a traditional, precise appearance. Turn that same gemstone 90 degrees, and the engagement ring looks minimalist. The diamond and the band flow into one melodic line.

 

Grew-and-Co-2

 

2 - In-Line Stones

Here’s another take on East-West designs. We’re seeing minimalist engagement rings that combine the band and the stone in one seamless line. By using a baguette as the centre stone, jewellers are toning down traditional solitaires and creating understated, elegant engagement rings.

3 - Tiny Bands

Love the classic solitaire but want to adopt a more minimalist style? Jewellers are creating solitaire engagement rings with extremely thin, hard-edged bands. There’s something refreshing and young about this style; we expect to see more of it.

4 - Geometric Shapes

Scandinavian design has long produced minimalist interiors using simple geometric lines. By placing a round brilliant diamond inside a simple octagonal setting, we see a solitaire in a whole new light.

5 - Double Bands

The double-band engagement ring has taken many forms in the past few years, and most of them are anything but minimalist. We’ve seen double pave bands with huge haloed stones in the centre and postmodern rhombus bands with gorgeous opals spanning the divide. Currently, however, minimalist designers are showing how simple and understated double-band designs can be when the lines and stones create unexpected flow.

6 - Toned-down Symmetry

Minimalist rings don’t have to eschew texture and sparkle. Combining a round brilliant diamond, two baguettes and several, small side stones creates a harmonious design. Its perfect symmetry and subtle garnishes bring an organic appeal to minimalist form.

7 - Side-stone Simplicity

Sometimes it’s the details that create a minimalist look. On its own, a sizeable pear-shaped centre diamond might appear flashy, but when two round diamonds flank it and soften the line to the band, it achieves a gorgeous simplicity.

 

Side-stones

 

8 - Trillion Cut Diamonds

In the past, jewellers primarily used trillion-shaped diamonds as accents to other stones, but today they’re finally taking the limelight, especially in minimalist engagement rings. You’ll find three-sided gems with both round and pointed edges. One of the advantages of finding a trillion stone you like is that they appear more substantial, carat for carat, than most other diamond shapes.

9 - Constellation Rings

You’d be forgiven for thinking there’s a competition on Instagram to see which celebrity sports the most massive rock on her engagement ring. If that kind of sport isn’t for you, take a look at this trend: minimalist constellation rings. Instead of focusing on one giant sparkler, these rings create a delicate constellation of small diamonds or other gemstones.

10 - Side-by-Side Stones

This minimalist engagement ring trend tugs at our heartstrings with its beautiful symbolism. Instead of focusing all the attention on one stone, why not set two stones side by side, representing you and your partner?

 

Side-by-side

 

When you find the perfect engagement ring for your minimal bride, protect it with Q Report jewellery insurance. She can wear it with confidence and freedom, knowing it will be fully restored to her if the unexpected happens.
