Then you are definitely on trend for the most popular Bridal Engagement Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and business experts say are the hot items for this year's bridal fine jewelry, just in time for Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event!
Old & Old Inspired
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Given that the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find, classical lends itself to individuality.
In an era of mass produce, it's necessary to shine in your own way. Vintage inspired is desirable because it evokes the sentiment and romance of years past.
Often the procedures of vintage jewelry are very alluring because of the attractive craftsmanship such as hand engraving.
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone publicized rose quartz as color of the year in 2016, it has had a resurgence.
Seen in the 19th century in Russia, it's a blend of yellow gold and copper. Rose gold has a warmth and softness that exudes romance. It's a very durable metal and doesn't require rhodium plating or dipping like white gold.
We love it considering that it is fashionable and feminine. Because it's unexpected and that makes it unique, we also love it.
Lifestyles have changed and many feel comfortable with a more minimalist look. We are seeing numerous customers who are interested in a delicate setting.
Brides are setting more emphasis on a single sparkling diamond and less on the band. They are purchasing classic solitaires or delicately accented engagement mountings.
This simple and elegant look also allows the wearer to emphasize her personality by stacking alternate bands in a variety of shapes and metals. This also gives her the flexibility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different variations of stacks.
Using colored gems has been well-known in both vintage and contemporary jewelry.
People and couples are often drawn to a stone because of the color or meaning of the stone. It really makes the ring an original and attaches significance to the piece.
We're undertaking to see these exquisite pops of color as center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also discovering ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.
