Minka’s Lucy Crowther is regularly called upon as an expert in the national press and, most recently, she talked to Who What Wear about the upcoming engagement ring trends for 2022. Introducing the piece, Maxine Eggenberger wrote: ‘It seems counterintuitive to talk about engagement ring trends. After all, these are pieces of jewellery you’ll likely be wearing for a very, very long time, and the term “trend” feels all too flippant. But still, it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge that engagement ring preferences tend to ebb and flow.’
One of the six trends highlighted in the article was that of Gypsy Engagement Rings. ‘Gypsy rings [rings where gemstone is set flush into the band] have been making a real comeback recently and we are thrilled about this as big and bold is what we do best,’ Lucy Crowther said. ‘We recently made the most beautiful blue sapphire and diamond Gypsy style ring as an engagement ring for a bespoke client and have added a range of ready-to-wear gold gypsy rings featuring an array of vibrant coloured stones to our Berlin Collection, all of which make wonderful alternatives to the traditional engagement ring.’ This trend was illustrated by Minka’s Gypsy Diamond Ring, which has 0.40 diamonds and 18kt yellow gold.
Also featured in the piece, under the trend ‘Coloured Engagement Rings’ was the Deep Green Gypsy Ring from Minka’s Berlin Collection. Writing about this style, Maxine Eggenberger explained: ‘Not only does this open up a host of chic engagement ring options, but it means the ring you or your partner chooses has the potential to be a more acute reflection of your overall personal style.’
