Favoured by the celeb set in the early 2000’s, ‘the bigger the better’ mentality is no more when it comes to engagement rings, rather loved-up couples are favouring more affordable and quirky bling.

According to new data from Pinterest, searches for ‘moissanite gems’ were up by a whopping 249 per cent, while searches for ‘art deco’ rings were up 173 per cent and ‘oval stones’ 125 per cent.

Last year, the coloured engagement ring began to trend, and it seems to have continued this year with Princess Eugenie’s engagement diamond being a striking shade of pink.

London designer, Lily Kemper, who specialises in bespoke engagement rings told Refinery29, "I think art deco has always been popular.

“The proportions are satisfying and so is the symmetry. You can see amazing antique pieces in the shops in Hatton Garden which are still so popular today."
