Trend Alert: Minimalist Diamond Engagement Rings Because Less Is More

An engagement ring is a symbol of your love to your partner. It is the physical embodiment of the commitment and trust of your relationship. So while a ring that’s heavy on the bling might suit some people’s fancy, a minimalist aesthetic in engagement rings is the newest trend of the season.  A minimalist diamond engagement ring’s USP is that it can be easily carried everyday. It won’t only suit you when you’re in your bridal outfit but also when you’re at home in your pajamas enjoying a movie night. 

When it comes to choosing a metal for the simple band of your minimalist diamond ring, go for metals like white gold, rose gold, or yellow gold. A platinum band would increase the overall brilliance of your ring which may not fit into your minimalist aesthetic. You can choose settings like the bezel setting or a solitaire setting for a simpler effect. Round and oval cut diamonds take the win when it comes to the cut most suited for a minimalist diamond engagement ring. Read on to find which trends are dominating the minimalist jewelry aesthetic.

Lab Diamonds vs. Mined Diamonds

A natural diamond not only burns a hole in your pocket but also takes a toll on the Earth due to the extensive mining that is needed to get to the rock. Not to mention the unethical practices that have evolved in the diamond industry owing to the rock’s rarity. An obvious sustainable and Earth kind alternative to a natural diamond is a lab grown diamond. A lab diamond is visually and physically identical to a mined diamond. It is also more affordable and easy to customize. At Friendly Diamonds, we have a wide range of eco-conscious loose lab diamonds as well as lab diamond jewelry that can be customized to your style, be it minimalism or a lot of bling.
