1. Lab Grown Diamonds

Demand is growing for lab grown diamond engagement rings in 2023, a more cost-effective option that offers the same sparkle and durability as natural diamonds. Obtaining the beauty of a diamond through lab-created diamonds is an option to make budgets go further, and one that is being embraced by a growing number of consumers.
A major reason for their popularity is because lab-grown diamonds are more affordable, which helps meet a wider range of budgets. Natural diamonds are rare and only found in a few places on Earth, whereas lab-created diamonds are created in dozens of laboratories and factories worldwide with technology that is continually improving.
It is expected that this trend will accelerate in the near future, as lab-grown diamonds are becoming more accessible to everyone; allowing you to have designer settings, larger diamonds and better-cut diamonds at a more affordable price point.
This is a significant improvement over diamond simulants like cubic zirconias, which are now used extensively in costume jewelry. As a result, lab-grown diamonds will play a significant role in the jewelry industry going forward.
Whiteflash has always been known for providing the finest natural diamonds available. However, we are equally dedicated to supplying our customers with the diamonds they desire for their dream engagement ring.
To accommodate customers looking for lab-grown diamonds, Whiteflash offers the finest lab-created diamonds in our Precision Lab category. Our lab diamonds are the best of the best due to our expertise in cut quality and diamond light performance. At Whiteflash you can find the perfect diamond to match the engagement trends of 2023, whatever your style or budget might be.

2. Designer Settings

You can elevate an engagement ring to something truly stunning, even rare, by going designer. Regardless of whether you're a designer devotee or not, there’s been a revival in taking classic designer settings and making them uniquely yours. Yes, even solitaires!
A designer, unlike mass-produced manufacturers, only produces a limited number of designs. One designer can usually be distinguished from another by their own unique style and impressive styling. If you avail yourself to designer brands, you are sure to discover a particular designer whose style matches your own.
Today, most designers offer rings in a variety of metals, including platinum, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold.
As lab-created diamonds gain popularity, this trend of designer settings is likely to increase as well due to the savings the center stone offers. In many cases, people opt for larger diamonds with the cost savings, overlooking the advantage of acquiring an exquisite designer setting to make their lab-grown diamond pieces unique.
Buying a designer setting might seem impossible with natural mined diamonds, but lab-grown diamonds make it much easier.
Establishing a reputation for quality and customer care has allowed Whiteflash the privilege of representing some of the most prestigious names in designer jewelry. We are authorized distributors for some of the top designer brands including Tacori, Verragio, Simon G, Ritani, Valoria, Vatche, Danhov and Benchmark.
If you do not find a particular style on our site made by one of these fine designers, just let us know and we will get it for you. Read about our designers and access their catalogs conveniently on our designer engagement rings page.

3. Romantic Solitaire Styles

In terms of design, a solitaire ring will never go out of style because its simplicity is timeless. In 2023, we predict a pivot towards finer detailing that enhances the romantic and regal appeal of a solitaire engagement ring.
Take the 18k White Gold Seasons of Love Diamond Engagement Ring from A. Jaffe, which features a splendid oval diamond and a tightly twisted diamond shank that marries modern design ideas with romantic, classic sensibilities.
Oval-cut engagement rings have consistently been popular, but demand has increased in the past year, and we expect this to continue in 2023.
Playing on romantic elements, like soft curves, twisted shanks and intricate details, the high-impact look and dazzle of these types of engagement rings will draw all eyes to the wearer's finger. Their curving, unique shape also makes them stand out from the classic round diamonds widely popular for engagement rings.
*Many, if not most settings for oval center diamonds will also be available for a round.

4. Diamond Bezel Settings

In 2023, many individuals are looking to adopt healthier lifestyles, and a low-profile, streamlined diamond setting is a great solution for those who lead an active lifestyle or those incorporating more exercise into their everyday lives. An understated bezel setting makes for a stylish, durable, and versatile ring design.
In case you're unfamiliar with bezel settings, they consist of a thin metal rim around the stone, protecting it from all sides. You may want to use this setting for your engagement ring if you're planning to use a more delicate gemstone like an emerald.
It is expected that bezel settings will become increasingly popular in diamond engagement rings in 2023. Engagement rings in bezel settings create a sleek, contemporary aesthetic that lends a stylish, modern feel.
Diamonds with bezel settings tend to be geometric shapes like emerald cuts, Asscher cuts, and radiant cuts. Nevertheless, round cuts and ovals are increasingly being set in bezels too. We have yet to see bezel settings come into their prime yet - you can hop on this trend earlier and get ahead of the curve.

5. Two-Stone Engagement Rings

The popularity of solitaire rings will continue to increase in 2023, but an additional type of ring is on the rise. For the second consecutive year, the toi et moi ring - also known as two-stone engagement rings - is one of 2023's biggest engagement ring trends.
Symbolizing the deep connection between two people, this trendy engagement ring design can be highly symbolic. Pop stars, movie stars, and First Ladies have all sported the now-iconic two-stone engagement ring. This style was popularized by Jackie Kennedy's two-stone ring.
This engagement ring trend isn't going anywhere and will continue to grow in popularity. It's a great canvas for combining different gemstones, shapes, and colors, as well as incorporating graphic bands and settings if you're looking for something a bit more daring.

6. Yellow Gold Settings

Clearly, platinum and gold ring settings have both endured through the ages. Unsurprisingly, a return of yellow gold will be among the hottest engagement ring trends of 2023.
Yellow gold is regaining popularity in modern styles, from vintage-inspired designs to contemporary ones; this classic precious metal conveys a robust and rich aesthetic. Engagement rings for 2023 will feature diamonds set in yellow gold to perfectly contrast the buttery metal's warmth by adding an eye-catching icy sparkle.
It is possible to lower the diamond color by one or two grades when opting for yellow gold and prioritize the money saved on the cut or setting instead. Diamonds need not be colorless in order to appear white in contrast with the darker yellow metal.

7. Cut Over Carat

Well-cut diamonds will have more beauty and value than diamonds whose cut quality has been compromised for carat weight.

In the current trend for engagement rings, a sense of old meets new is permeating all aspects, from settings (e.g. Art Deco) to cuts (Old European). These pieces are characterized by their time-gone-by appeal, in contrast to the sleek, utilitarian lines of minimalist designs of the previous decade.
It is the timeless elegance of art-deco pieces that has kept them popular for decades. You can find something to suit every taste in such a broad style.
Lots of filigree detailing, white, rose and yellow gold metal, repetitive geometric motifs and clean lines can create an Art Deco feel with a contemporary twist fit for 2023 engagement ring trends.
People are choosing pieces that use classic design from bygone eras, yet use metals that are well-known and deemed current. Traditionally associated with vintage styling, rose gold is now becoming more popular too.
Using modern ideal cut diamonds, we can improve on the original look. It is typically true that things that you save for a long time will come back into style at some point in the future. There's no doubt that diamonds will never go out of style!

There is a playfulness to these gems that diamonds can complement. They are unique, brightly colored, and have an innate playfulness. Engagement is a celebration of love and beauty, after all.
The Platinum Verragio Parisian Shared-Prong Princess and Sapphire 3 Stone Engagement Ring with Rose Gold Wraps is a beautiful example of how colored gemstones can be matched with white diamonds.
Colored gemstones such as rubies and sapphires are experiencing a moment in the spotlight thanks to modern designs and top-quality cuts. A colored gemstone engagement ring adds a new dimension of personality to the wearer, especially if it is their favorite color, birth stone or holds some other personal meaning.
