Traditional engagement rings are trending; here are five of our favourite classic cut rings right now.

When Meghan Markle flashed her upgraded gold trilogy ring last year, we loved her unique take on a classic cut. 

According to Google Trends, this return to tradition has been on the rise recently and is predicted to make a comeback in 2021. The top searches from brides-to-be have been pear cut, solitaire, sapphire, oval and platinum.

And many jewellers are rising to the occasion, creating brilliant, classic cut rings with intricate detail. Here are five beautiful, classic rings trending right now.
