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.

Simple Solitaire

Skye Classic Solitaire, Keanes Jewellers

This gleaming 18ct yellow gold ring has a platinum head with a solitaire round, brilliant cut diamond. It’s delicate, scalloped set diamond band detail truly sets it apart.

Vivid Oval 

Evie Oval Halo, Keanes Jewellers

Set in a platinum band, this dazzling display is centred around an oval cut sapphire, embroidered with a halo of diamonds.

Platinum Pear

Skye Duo Pear Halo, Keanes Jewellers

Strictly diamonds, this pear cut ring glistens from all angles. It features a 0.5ct diamond surrounded by smaller stones that cascade onto the platinum band.

Royal Trilogy 

Royal Radiant Three Stone, Keanes Jewellers

Similar to the Meghan Markle’s trilogy ring, this platinum piece has three diamonds, one rectangular-cut and sandwiched by two round-cut stones, giving this classic design a distinctive edge.

Radiant Halo

For those who are looking for that extra sparkle, this double halo, radiant cut has twice as many diamonds – a shimmering showstopper.
