Old & Collection Motivated
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 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 gorgeous craftsmanship such as hand engraving.
Rose gold is not a new material, but since Pantone publicized 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 feminine and fashionable, 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 many 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 elegant and simple 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 versatileness to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different differences of stacks.
Using colored gems has been attractive 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 viewing ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.
Three Stone Rings
