Every year marks new trends in bridal jewelry, and what was popular only five years ago may look hopelessly passé now. Now that we’re well into 2017, we can see clear patterns from designers, tastemakers, and consumers about what kind of engagement rings have characterized this year.
We’re used to a certain set of materials in the repertoire of the designers’ toolkit of design, such as gold, colourless diamonds, and perfectly round pearls. But while those precious materials rightly deserve to be the standard for jewellery creation, sometimes taking the path less taken is better — and choosing different, alternative materials invites a different kind of beauty.
Oh no! You want to propose to your favorite lady in the world — you’ve got the venue ready, you’ve got the ideal place to pop the question, and heck, you’ve even got a camera person ready! But you don’t have the ring yet! You might think you can push that to the last minute, but you’re sadly mistaken if you think a lady won’t notice that her ring, her one-and-only engagement ring, was picked without enough care and attention.
Are we all in love with European style here in the U.S.? Mais oui! From the 1700’s to the runways of modern Milan, the fifty states have always had a fondness for Europe’s chic designs in jewelry and timepieces. Here at Premiere Jewelry Designs, we always swoon when we see pieces from three of our favorite European designers: Henri Daussi, Officina Bernardi, and Cartier.
New York City is one of the main arteries of creativity and design in the jewelry market, and pieces from the Five Boroughs are the talk of the town—the town of Centennial, Colorado, in fact, and the town of Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Everyone’s been going green, from Cameron Diaz, to Harrison Ford, to the illustrious Daryl Hannah. With that in mind, why not make your wedding an organic affair? People have the skill to create stunning exquisiteness, but nobody can do beauty better than Mother Nature. Make your wedding an organic paradise, and take inspiration from the natural world when choosing your bridal jewelry.
It’s soon to be the most wonderful time of the year! And with festivals like Christmas, Diwali, Hanukkah, and even Chinese New Year (it’s February 16th in 2018), coming to ring in the winter months, there’s no better way to celebrate winter than with some new styles from Michael M that invoke the unique qualities that people love in the three chilliest months in the year.
Ladies, let’s be honest: One of the nicest things about engagements is being able to show off that new sparkle decorating your ring finger. Some women like a more subtle ring and some women prefer a colored stone for their engagement, but there’s just something special about wearing a big, glorious diamond on one’s finger.
While fall lacks the pastel delight of spring, the brilliance of summer, and the cool, dark hermitage of winter, it’s a season that evokes its own unique jewelry combinations. The changing of the leaves and the foods and festivals of the harvest season inspire autumnal shades of soft oranges, gentle metallic colors, and dull reds—as well as inspiration from fall’s favorite flavor: pumpkin spice.
