This hasn't been a great year for... well, anything, but IMO, all the celebrity engagement rings from 2020 have seriously delivered. From classic to unique to totally on-trend, A-listers have shown off a wide range of sparklers this year. While some newly-engaged Hollywood stars have yet to give fans a good look at their diamonds (yes, I'm talking to you, bride-to-be Sue Bird), plenty of others have made 2020 (and my IG timeline) a little brighter with their new jewelry. And though I couldn't pick my favorite one if I tried, there are def a couple of standouts that deserve your attention.
If you're wondering what's trendy in the world of engagement rings right RN, just look at what the celebs are rocking. Engagement ring trends for 2020 include hidden halos, elongated cuts, solitaire diamonds, side-stone accents, and — most notably — yellow gold bands. Of course, not all A-listers followed this year's trends. From Lily Collins' rose-cut bezel-set diamond stunner to Leigh-Anne Pinnock's vintage cushion-cut black diamond rock, some of 2020's coolest celeb engagement rings are unique AF. No matter your own personal preference, there's no denying these stunning celebrity sparklers made this year just a tiny bit more bearable.

Ever since Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announced their engagement in October 2020, I've been eager to see a good pic of her impressive bling.

Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock's engagement ring from soccer star Andre Gray (which she received in May 2020) is perhaps the most celeb unique ring of 2020: a vintage cushion-cut black diamond, surrounded by a white diamond halo with a split shank and diamonds on the band.

Her ring features an oval-cut diamond surrounded by a glittering halo and set on a slender pavé diamond band.
Younger actor Molly Bernard got engaged to Hannah Lieberman in January 2020, and though she has yet to provide fans with a super close look at her new jewelry, the ring appears to feature a solitaire or three-stone ring with tiny tapered baguettes and a second curved half-crown yellow gold band.
