Hottest Trends in Engagement Rings for 2022

Updated: May 19

I spoke with diamond specialist Kathy Zaltas of Zaltas Gallery of Fine Jewelry in Westchester County, NY about the trends she is seeing now.

“I am seeing a lot of ovals, cushions, and emerald shaped stones. Ovals are really popular because people like the way the shape looks on their hands. They are particularly nice on someone with long fingers. Also, cushions are very big. I just love cushions.

Some people will always like the quiet elegance of the step cut, which is the emerald cut.

But the perennial favorite is still the round brilliant diamond.

Go in and try on lots of different shapes. The most important thing is to get something you really love, because you will be wearing it for a very long time!”
