Old & Collection Motivated
In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Due to the fact that the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find, rare lends itself to personal identity.
In an era of mass manufacturing, it's vital to shine in your own way. Vintage inspired is desirable because it evokes the sentiment and romance of years past.
Because of the beautiful craftsmanship such as hand inscription, often the techniques of vintage charms are very appealing.
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.
We love it for the reason 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 numerous 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 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 versatileness to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different differences of stacks.
Using colored gems has been prominent 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 out to see these exquisite pops of color as center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also seeing ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.
