When searching for the perfect engagement ring, one of the most important things to do is match the ring to the person. A woman will always look her best with an engagement ring that matches her style. While vintage engagement rings have made a huge surge in popularity with millennials, many other couples seek something more modern. However, the idea of modern engagement rings is a little tricky. Because the industry definition of “modern” a bit vague, many customers are confused as to what counts as a modern ring. In order to help ring buyers find the right modern look, we’ve put together this brief guide on modern engagement rings.
What Does Modern Even Mean?
The idea of a modern engagement ring style does not simply mean “contemporary.” A modern ring actually refers to the modern design aesthetic most commonly associated with architecture and graphic design. In this case, modern refers to bold, clean lines. While modern architecture rejected classical styles and instead preferred plenty of steel and lots of glass, modern engagement rings do something similar. Typically, a modern engagement ring includes a channel set diamond. However, this is not the only style of modern engagement rings available. Like the designs of popular modernist architect Frank Lloyd Wright, modern engagement rings often bridge design with nature by using multiple diamonds in the ring setting.
