COLUMBUS-- Are you looking for a marriage ceremony set that's timeless and trendy? Do you want it to still expresses your individuality and not effortlessly duplicated?
You are surely on trend for the most preferred Bridal Proposal Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and industry specialists say are the hot items for this year's bridal fine jewelry, just in time for Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event!
Vintage & Old Inspired
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Classical 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 conviction and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand illustration, often the techniques of vintage fashion jewelry are very pleasing.
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone declared 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 simply because it is feminine and fashionable. Because it's unexpected and that makes it unique, we also love it.
Lifestyles have changed and many feel comfortable with a more minimalist look. We are seeing a variety 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 shapes and metals. This also gives her the flexibility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different alternatives of stacks.
Using colored gems has been prominent in both vintage and contemporary jewelry.
Because of the color or meaning of the stone, people and couples are often enticed to a stone. It really makes the ring an original and attaches significance to the piece.
We're undertaking to see these lush pops of color as jewelers near me center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also discovering 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 enduring three stone engagement ring, very well fit for a princess!
We love Meghan's ring for a variety of reasons, including the treasure diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection and the cushion cut. Oh beautiful and so elegant with such belief of past, existing 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 possibly, 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 personalized! Customization has become more popular than ever with millennials who want to be a part of the full design exposure in creating a piece that is truly special to them.
Picking the one for you!
So how to choose what's right for you? Pin all you like, but you really 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.
They are also presenting a $50 gift card to the Refectory Restaurant to the first 20 customers who schedule a custom appointment.
