COLUMBUS-- Are you looking for a wedding set that's classic and fashionable? Do you want it to still expresses your individuality and not simply simulated?
You are most definitely on trend for the most prominent Bridal Engagement Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and business experts say are the hot items for this year's wedding jewelry, just in time for Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event!
Vintage & Collection Influenced
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Classic lends itself to individuality because the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find.
In an era of mass produce, it's very important to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the passion and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand engraving, often the techniques of vintage charms are very intriguing.
Rose gold is not a new metallic, but since Pantone revealed rose quartz as color of the year in 2016, it has had a resurgence.
First 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 just because it is fashionable and feminine. We also love it because it's unexpected and that makes it unique.
Lifestyles have changed and many feel comfortable with a more minimalist look. We are seeing a number of customers who are interested in a delicate setting.
Brides are applying more emphasis on a single sparkling diamond and less on the band. They are purchasing classic solitaires or delicately accented engagement mountings.
This elegant and simple look also allows the wearer to emphasize her personality by stacking alternate bands in a variety of metals and shapes. This also gives her the versatility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different alternatives of stacks.
Using colored gems has been famous 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 beginning to see these sumptuous pops of color as center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also finding ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.
Three Stone Rings
Thank you Meghan Markle for bringing back the timeless three stone involvement ring, wonderfully fit for a princess!
We love Meghan's ring for several reasons, including the inheritance diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection and the cushion cut. Oh gorgeous and so elegant with such belief of past, current and future.
