Jewelry has almost every girl’s heart so here’s your hottest guide to the trends in wedding bands for women in 2022 from hidden love notes to delicate silhouettes.
In 2022, mixed shape wedding bands are making a comeback. These rings can be styled in various ways. The mixed diamond shapes and sizes typically used are princess, round, emerald, half-moons, oval, marquise, pears, cushion, and heart.
Each of these sizes highlights the special attributes of every shape and compliment each other. Each shape has its level of luminosity performance, brightness, and the way each shape refracts light is different making the ring, sparkle, vibrant and stunning to look at.
Uniform shapes have become a little overdone these days so if you want something fresh and new take, for instance, a three-stone ring, it would feature a classic center stone in a fancy cut (if that’s what you desire) complemented by two other smaller stones like a pear and half-moons or this can even be paired with a birthstone/gemstone. This creates a result so individualistic, it’ll be hard to look away.
In a three-stone ring, they each represent the past, present, and future of the newly married couple so you can even consider adding heirloom stones that add to the ring’s story.
Due to obvious reasons, vintage wedding bands are timeless and exquisite pieces to own.

For couples who seek an engagement ring that represents a new depth to their love story, a big engagement ring trend for 2022 are love notes and hidden details.
This is a great way to go if you prefer a classic look but want to hide a secret message within the ring for only your spouse. A perfect and effective to personalize your wedding band is with an engraving on the inside of the wedding band.
You can add meaningful messages such as a significant date, meaningful symbols, initials, a poem, your names, a quote, a tiny image, or anything you can think of, it can be a little inside joke even!
