Bridal Jewelry Trends

DiamondEngagement season is well upon us, and we can already see trends emerging. Nowadays, its all about creativity! While most may still opt for the classical diamond solitaire and matching wedding band, there are those who prefer something more unconventional.

Statement bands are very popular right now – who needs two rings when you can have one wide and sparkly one in their place? These bands feature multiple rows of diamonds, and can come in a variety of diamond shapes including the classic round brilliant, princess, emerald, asscher, and more. Hearts on Fire carries many of these statement bands, which can be worn on the right hand or left hand, and serve as a perfect anniversary gift or an alternative to wearing a wedding set. A few of our favorites are the Enjoyment, Ceremonious, and Joy (all pictured).Diamond

Colored diamonds are another great choice for a unique ring, and they don’t always have to be more expensive than the colorless diamonds. There are the few favorites like yellows, blues, and pinks, but if that is not in your budget, look towards more unconventional colors such as orange, brown, or even black.

Another hot trend right now are delicate, organic looking rings. A great example is Miley Cyrus’ engagement ring (refer to previous post). Her center stone is a vintage-cut diamond that is complemented beautifully by the yellow gold filigree setting.
