COLUMBUS-- Are you searching for a wedding event set that's usual and elegant? Do you want it to still expresses your individuality and not effortlessly duplicated?
Then you are undoubtedly on trend for the most popular Bridal Engagement Rings of Winter 2018! Here's what forecasters and business experts say are the hot items for this year's wedding fine jewelry, just in time for Argo & Lehne Jewelers Bridal Event!
Old & Old Motivated
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Since the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find, venerable lends itself to originality.
In an era of mass manufacturing, it's important to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the way of thinking and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand engraving, often the techniques of vintage fine jewelry are very interesting.
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone revealed 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 considering that it is fashionable and feminine. 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 variety of 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 simple and elegant 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 versatility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different differences of stacks.
Using colored gems has been favored in both vintage and contemporary jewelry.
People and couples 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 starting to see these sumptuous pops of color as center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also viewing ovals engagement rings diamond cut 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 interaction ring, thoroughly fit for a princess!
We love Meghan's ring for numerous reasons, including the heirloom diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection and the cushion cut. Oh so elegant and wonderful with such sentiment of past, existing and future.
There are so many styles 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 an individual what you don't like but you aren't sure what you do like.
Not to dwell ... there is always custom-made! Customization has become more popular than ever with millennials who want to be a part of the comprehensive design experience 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 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 understand 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.
