2022 was a big year for style, as workers started returning to offices, people began to travel en masse, and the world slowly evolved in the wake of the pandemic. In short, we are all ready to look and feel beautiful again. We’re also still falling in love, proposing, and getting married. With these factors in mind, we decided to take a look back at some of this year’s engagement ring trends. Every style from classic to daring took center stage in 2022 as people are celebrating their individuality like never before. Take a look below at some of our Shane Co. favorites!
Bezel-Set Engagement Rings
A bezel-set engagement ring has a modern edge but an ancient history as one of the oldest settings that has circled back into style. The stone is encircled with metal, which slightly overlaps the edge to keep it safe. This is one of, if not the number one, most secure settings for a ring, so it’s a perfect style for people who use their hands a lot. Celebrities like model Poppy Delevingne are known for rocking a bezel-set engagement ring, looking fashionable and glamorous while doing so.

Meander Vintage Bezel-Set Diamond Engagement Ring
This elegant ring features milgrain detailing around 14 round diamonds. For the center stone, you can choose from a wide variety of gemstone shapes and colors, making it a ring unique to your or your partner’s tastes.
Toi et Moi Engagement Rings
“Toi et Moi,” sometimes referred to as “Moi et Toi,” means “you and me” in French. These rings feature two stones that represent the love between two people. The style first gained popularity in 1796, when Napoleon Bonaparte gifted his wife, Joséphine de Beauharnais, a Toi et Moi ring featuring a diamond and a sapphire. Today, Toi et Moi rings are popular with celebrities like Megan Fox. Shop a couple of Toi et Moi-style rings at Shane Co. below.

Geometric Engagement Rings
Geometric engagement rings are uniquely shaped, often incorporating symmetrical lines or patterns. A common era of geometric engagement rings was between the 1920s and ’30s, when Art Deco was all the rage. This popular design style featured many geometrical styles in jewelry, art, and architecture. Geometric can be a broad-ranging collection of looks, but we highlight one of our Shane Co. geometric engagement rings below.
