COLUMBUS-- Are you giving onto for a wedding ceremony set that's usual and sophisticated? Do you want it to still expresses your individuality and not conveniently simulated?
Then you are undoubtedly on trend for the most popular Bridal Engagement Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and business specialists say are the hot items for this year's pre-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. Vintage lends itself to individuality because the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find.
In an era of mass manufacturing, it's most important to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the view and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand illustration, often the techniques of vintage accessories are very fascinating.
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.
Because it is fashionable and feminine, we love it. 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 placing 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 flexibility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different varieties of stacks.
Using colored gems has been favored 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 embarking on 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 seeing 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 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 so elegant and stunning with such sentiment of past, present and future.
There are so many varieties to choose from and so many elements from different rings calling your name, but why can't you find the one?!
Or it could be that, it's just the opposite and you can tell somebody what you don't like but you aren't sure what you do like.
Not to dwell ... there is always custom! Modification has become more popular than ever with millennials who want to be a part of the complete design exposure in creating a piece that is truly special to them.
Selecting the one for you!
How to pick what's right for you? Pin all you like, but you may need to start trying on! It's 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.
A great start is at Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event which runs from January 22-27. There will be thousands of rings to preview including a private trunk show with Whitehouse Brothers (a local Cincinnati designer with vintage styles), Venetti and Dora.
