Cuffing season is right around the corner.

August 18, 2022, 4:12 AM

As summer comes to a close, fall will begin — and engagement season will be here before you know it.

While couples are getting engaged all year long, the deeper fall months, also known as "cuffing season," has notoriously been a popular time for ring shopping and proposals.

If you are on the hunt for the perfect bling to present to your fiancé-to-be, and they haven't given you any hints at what they'd desire, fear not.

While there are tons of different rings on the market to choose from, there are several styles that are also trendy yet timeless.

"Good Morning America" tapped Gabriel & Co. bridal merchandiser Inna Kushnirski as well as jewelry designer and curator Stephanie Gottlieb to find out the hottest engagement trends of the season.

From Cardi B to Paris Hilton, pear-shaped rings have not only become a trend but a celebrity favorite as well.

"The pear shape appears much larger than its carat weight, as compared to other diamond shapes, and the elongated outline flatters most hands," said Gottlieb. "When set in a solitaire design, the pear becomes the star of the show."

Classic round diamond

Classic round diamond rings will stand the test of time and never really go out of style.

"The classic round diamond with tapered baguette side stones is also making a comeback,' said Gottlieb. "Typically this resonates with a bride who is inclined towards a vintage aesthetic. The addition of side stones offers a lot of finger coverage, which is why brides are often drawn to this look."

Hidden Halo

According to Kushnirski, hidden halo-style rings are having a moment. "It's like the traditional halo, but made for the minimalist," she said.

She added, "Due to the uptick in alternative center stone options, you can achieve a bigger center look without the traditional halo, but still give the extra bling on the sides without adding to the band or shank."

Toi et Moi

What's better than a one-stone? Two stones! This duo-style look, also known as "Toi et Moi" rings, are currently trending, according to Gottlieb.

"We love this style because the two stones in combination create a much larger impression than one single larger diamond, and can be created at the same price point," said Gottlieb. "This is a beautiful way to incorporate an heirloom diamond or gemstone, and can also be done to incorporate birthstones."
