1970s Engagement Rings Frequently Asked Questions

In fitting with the fun maximalist style of 70s fashion, large eye-catching engagement rings were popular. Particularly cluster rings, which are made up of a central diamond surrounded by a ring of smaller gems, were the go-to option for engagement rings in the 1970s – the bigger and chunkier, the better.

Halo rings also saw a surge in popularity, as people were looking for dazzling alternatives to the more refined jewellery styles of the 1960s. With multi-stone rings becoming so popular, channel-set diamond shanks also enjoyed a moment in the spotlight. Any design that could elevate the classic diamond engagement ring was well received in the 70s.

Another trend that took the jewellery industry by storm during this decade was bridal and wedding sets. In the 70s, coordination was key and choosing an engagement ring and a wedding band to match became a sought-after trend. Wedding sets also include a matching wedding band for the other partner.

Gold dominated the jewellery world in this era. From gold chains to gold bangles, people just couldn’t get enough. Much of the 1970s aesthetic was inspired by nature and natural motifs, and yellow gold complimented this trend perfectly.
