The Top 5 Engagement Ring Trends For 2023
Nude Jewellery is a forward thinking independent jeweller that specialises in creating unique and unusual exclusive engagement ring designs. Owner & award-winning designer Nikki Galloway spends her days liaising with clients to discuss which styles they are looking for and creating their perfect bespoke engagement. “Everyday is different which is why I love my job, creating engagement rings on a daily basis gives us a fantastic insight into how trends and styles are ever changing and what we foresee as future styles".
So here are our predictions for engagement rings for 2023:
1, Sapphires & Coloured Gemstones
This year we have made many gemstone engagement rings in a rainbow of colours, from breathtakingly beautiful violet sapphires to yellow diamonds and green tsavorite. There seems to be no stopping the bright and adventurous colour combinations. The most traditional gemstone for engagement rings used are, sapphires, rubies and emeralds. This is because these gemstone are incredibly strong and durable. But there are many other gemstones that are equally as beautiful to choose from.
Did you know? Sapphires don't just come in the traditional and most common blue, you can also get teal, green, pink, white and yellow all in many shades and hues. Below is our Flutterby ring featuring a stunning violet sapphire.
I love this, we have a wide selection of colour clash engagement rings and have created many throughout the year. My favourite is red sapphires or rubies with pink sapphires it's just such a fun combination.
2, Asymmetrical Engagement Ring
A new contemporary trend away from the norm and traditional is the asymmetrical engagement rings which are increasing in popularity. This style is a beautiful way to show off your unique personality. We started out with our Atlantis ring which continues to be one of our most popular ring designs and then couple of variations on this ring. The Atlantis Storm and The Atlantis Paradise and new for October 2022 is our Seline ring.
Technical Tip: My advice when looking at this style is to make sure that the weight of the gemstones and top details are balanced otherwise the ring will fall to the heavier side when on the finger.
3, Pear Shaped & Marquise Shaped Diamonds & Gemstones
This style is classic yet modern, often with a delicate band adorned in diamonds or gemstones which shows of the main focal point which is often a diamond or stunning gemstone. Take a look at our Calista ring, our most popular combinations in this ring is ruby and black diamonds and yellow/champagne diamond and white diamonds.
Technical Tip: In order for the ring to last the test of time, make sure that the even although the band is delicate, it shouldn't be so delicate that it will snap or weaken over time and through wear – remember this is a ring that you will wear every day forever.
4, Champagne – Chocolate Diamonds
Champagne and chocolate coloured diamonds are stunning, vivid and full of life and are typically not as expensive as the traditional white diamond making them an increasingly popular choice. They are also perfectly paired with rose gold which only enhances their beauty and what's not to love about rose gold which has never been so popular.
5, Rose Gold
Rose gold engagement rings have been popular for quite a few years now with no signs of going away. For years I have been designing and making engagement rings which were mostly white gold with a few that were yellow. Now I'd say that rose gold is more popular than yellow with my clients. It has a softness about it which works very well with many different gemstones and skin tones.

Toi et Moi Engagement Rings
Translated to “You and Me” from French, Toi et Moi rings nestle two showstopping stones together in one simple and uncomplicated band. This is the design to look out for in the next couple of years and I think will be on my list for 2024!
