Australian engagement ring collection to surprise and delight any future bride-to-be.


The beginning of this year, temperates outside have been hot, to say the least; however, we have the hottest engagement rings in Australia to set the heart and soul alight. Not everyone has the time to flip through Vogue magazine or decipher thousands of posts on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out what's in style and what's not? 


We have done all the hard work for you! We have conducted extensive market research to remain on top of the latest trends, so we can help future brides and grooms-to-be find the ring style that best suits them.


The latest designs and styles can be found in a thousand and one places like colours, shapes, fashion, and architecture. Even the T.V. shows we binge-watch on Netflix, like "The Crown" and "Wednesday", have influenced the engagement rings on our top five list.


We have studied and identified the top five most elegant and modern emerging Australian engagement ring styles of 2023 that you will love! 


Trend 1: Classic


The classic engagement ring is a classic for a reason! Their timeless qualities and never-ending beauty go beyond a lifetime. Australia's two most popular choices in 2022 were the solitaire and the three-stone engagement ring. Both trends will continue throughout 2023.


Their popularity comes from the simple and elegant designs that are aesthetically pleasing for all to admire from near and far. The focus remains on the stones, as the attraction and the trend towards quality and brilliant sparkle from the solitaire engagement ring or the dazzling twinkle of the three-stone engagement ring with side and accent stones capture the attention before the centre stone stops the show.


A clear trend has emerged in 2023 for a higher quality of colour and clarity over the centre, side and accent stones size. A Solitaire stone is, on average, between 0.60 and 1.10 carats. In contrast, the three-stone engagement ring is between 0.50 and 0.75 carats for the centre, with side stones ranging from 0.15 to 0.30 carats each for a total carat weight of between 0.80 and 1.25 carats, with brilliance being the priority.


Diamond and Gemstone Shapes that are available from Jewels of St Leon Engagement Rings Australia

The four most desired shapes in Australia for solitaire, three-stone and accented classic engagement rings are oval, brilliant round, emerald and square cuts, with natural diamonds the most popular, and blue sapphire, lab-grown diamonds, Moissanite, champagne diamonds and ruby among the stone varieties highly favoured.


Australian brides admire and desire the classic engagement ring because its everlasting beauty radiates sophistication with a touch of class.

Trend 2: Regency Engagement Rings

Trend 3: Archi-Deco Engagement Rings


Art deco, for more than a century now, has influenced everything from architecture and interior design to car design and has had a significant influence on jewellery and, in particular, engagement rings.

In 2023 the art deco style is being reimagined for a new generation. This redesigned style is called Archi-Deco! The heart of this update is the luxurious feel and attention to detail you see in architecture from the 1920s, like Sydney's State Theatre or Western Australia's Gledden building.


Aussie bride's favourite types are halo and accented engagement rings styled in archi-deco. This modern twist is full of drama, excitement and rich detail that will attract the attention and eye of anyone near you.


In Australia, the ring's design determines the shape and size of the centre stone. Our clients, on average, prefer a centre stone of between 0.45 to 1.00 carat, depending on the design, and accent stones of various shapes and sizes; for an average total carat weight of 0.90 to over 1.20 carats.


Australia's three best-loved centre stone shapes are brilliant round, oval and emerald cuts. Baguettes, small rounds, and other cut styles used as accents highlight the ornamental design of your engagement ring. The prevalent stone types are Natural Diamonds, Champagne Diamonds, Moissanite, Blue Sapphire and Lab-Grown Diamonds, to name a few.

Modern Sleek engagement rings are a growing mainstream option in Australia.

The modern bride will adore this engagement ring from the beaches of Sydney to the outback of Western Australia as the symbol of everlasting love and commitment. 


Intensity from premium quality and stone type is the clear trend for engagement rings in Australia instead of higher carat, lesser quality stones. Solitaire sizes range from 0.50 to 1.10 carats. Side and accent stones go from 0.03 to 0.40 carats depending on the style. In contrast, a two-stone Toi et Moi engagement ring is 0.30 to 0.70carat each.


Brilliant round, oval, square and emerald are the most popular shapes in Australia for modern sleek solitaire, three-stone, halo and accented engagement rings, with Moissanite and Lab-Grown Diamonds as preferred stone choices.
