Origin & Vintage Motivated
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Given that the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find, classic lends itself to personal identity.
In an era of mass manufacturing, it's very important to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the view and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.
Often the tactics of vintage jewelry are very alluring because of the spectacular skillfullness such as hand engraving.
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone introduced 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.
Because it is feminine and fashionable, we love it. 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 numerous customers who are interested in a delicate setting.
Brides are applying 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 varieties of stacks.
Using colored gems has been trendy 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 initiating 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 spotting ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.
