When someone says the word “trend”, the first thing that comes to mind for many is a fashion trend. Just like with fashion, new trends in jewelry pop up all the time. The great advantage of jewelry trends is that they tend to stick around for a while and most good jewelry never goes out of style. Think diamond studs and pearl necklaces, to name a few.
Colored diamonds and center stones are now trending in the world of engagement rings. This is due much in part to celebrities who are opting for something different and driving the trend. Perhaps, one of the most recognizable is Kate Middleton’s engagement ring with a blue sapphire center that is surrounded by diamonds.
John crafted this ring that looks very similar to Princess Diana's ring, the one that Kate Middleton now wears.
The greatest part about this trend is that it’s attainable for everyone! No matter what price point you are working with, you can find or create a stunning ring. Colored diamonds can be quite pricey, but there are many options to attain the same look with a tighter budget. Here are some great options if you are thinking about a colored stone for your engagement ring.
For those that already have a ring but like the trend and want to add some color to your bridal set, a colored band is a great option. Many women are opting for another band that stacks with their original bridal set. We have seen some go for a band with the birthstone of their significant other, their children, or just a stone that they really like.
The greatest part about working with John is the ability to customize your jewelry however you like. We have great ring options from the John Wade Bridal Collection that can easily accommodate a colored center stone instead of a diamond. Or you can think outside the box and work with him to create a one-of-a-kind piece! The novelty of custom jewelry is that it allows you to take a trend and make it your own!
