COLUMBUS-- Are you searching for a wedding ceremony set that's fashionable and classic? Do you want it to still expresses your individuality and not simply duplicated?
Then you are surely on trend for the most popular Bridal Engagement Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and industry experts say are the hot items for this year's bridal precious jewelry, just in time for Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event!
Origin & Old Influenced
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Venerable 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 essential to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the conviction and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Often the methods of vintage jewelry are very alluring because of the lovely workmanship such as hand engraving.
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone introduced 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 just because it is feminine and fashionable. 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 many 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 simple and elegant 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 varieties of stacks.
Using colored gems has been in demand in both vintage and contemporary jewelry.
Couples and people 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 luscious 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 ageless three stone interaction ring, very well fit for a princess!
We love Meghan's ring for numerous reasons, including the inheritance diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection and the cushion cut. Oh beautiful and so elegant with such sentiment of past, present and future.
There are so many types to choose from and so many elements from different rings calling your name, but why can't you find the one?!
Or maybe, it's just the opposite and you can tell an individual what you don't like but you aren't sure what you do like.
Not to dwell ... there is always custom-made! Personalization has become more popular than ever with millennials who want to be a part of the comprehensive design exposure in creating a piece that is truly special to them.
Selecting the one for you!
So how to choose what's right for you? Pin all you like, but you may need to start trying on! It's engagement rings for women common to love a ring in a photo, but it isn't until you try that piece on that you are able to recognize if the look is right for you.
