Our 2023 picks of the best diamond rings for women
When it comes to choosing the perfect diamond ring, the options can seem endless. Here at Mitchel & Co, we’ve identified some of our top picks from the popular styles and trends that have evolved throughout 2023. From timeless classics to contemporary twists, these dazzling diamond ring styles are sure to catch your eye.
Breaking away from traditional north-south settings, east-west settings offer a refreshing take on diamond rings. This 1920s art deco style is now being crafted for minimalist designs. This setting helps to create the illusion of a larger diamond, spanning the width of your finger. An east-west setting is also a great option for an engagement ring, it can be positioned next to a wedding ring without having to be fitted.
Mixing metals is a trend that continues to make waves in 2023. Combining gold, white gold, and platinum creates a visually striking contrast for an impactful look. This versatile style complements a range of outfits, making it suitable for everyday wear or special occasions.
Elongated, fancy-cut diamonds
In 2023, elongated diamond rings such as oval, marquise, emerald, and pear cut, became increasingly popular and it’s no wonder. While traditional round-cut diamonds may be the choice for some, elongated diamonds come in a variety of different shapes, giving you an option that better suits your hand. Elongated shapes create a flattering illusion, making fingers appear longer and slender.
Hidden stones or engravings add a beautiful personal detail to your ring. Engraving a meaningful date, an initial or short phrase in the band of your diamond ring is a subtle touch that creates a special connection to your jewellery that only you know about.
Another heart-warming trend in 2023 was birthstone jewellery. You could incorporate birthstones into your diamond ring to celebrate your relationships. Whether it’s the birthstone of your spouse, a sibling, or your children, this adds a layer of significance and meaning to your ring design.
The Toi-et-Moi setting features two distinct diamonds and is a symbol of two people uniting as one. This unique setting, representing love and partnership is the perfect choice for engagement rings and became a popular choice for celebrities during 2023, as seen on Megan Fox and Ariana Grande.
While classic, elegant white diamonds will always be a firm favourite, they also come in a variety of vibrant and beautiful hues, from blues and pinks to yellows. Opting for a coloured diamond in your ring design creates a unique look that stands out and expresses your individuality.
