If you plan to design your own engagement ring, you NEED to read today’s post from William Thomas Jewelers! They have years of experience in the business and share insight on the design process.
Our expert team at William Thomas Jewelers has crafted its share of engagement rings and wedding bands. While each client’s design is unique to them, all share a common desire to create a final piece that will be cherished for years to come. Today we’re sharing some of the trends we have observed throughout the years, and unique ideas from previous clients that we have loved.
Engagement ring styles have been constantly evolving since the early 20th century, from art-deco inspired designs to oval gemstones reminiscent of Princess Diana’s sapphire ring. But the style that has remained pretty consistent for the last few decades – round diamond solitaires! This design is classic and timeless, elegant and simple, and the single sparkling stone demands attention with no extraneous material to distract from its beauty.
Another current bridal jewelry favorite is the halo design. These rings feature a row of small melee diamonds that surround a single center stone! This beautiful style creates the appearance of a backdrop cushioning your center diamond and adds a little extra substance to your ring without going over the top.
While we love the simplicity of the solitaire and the beauty of a halo design, we have some ideas to add a unique edge to your engagement ring!
The best way to make your ring stand out is to take the current jewelry trends that you love and add a distinctive twist that reflects your personality and style. For example, rather than a circular halo around your circular center stone, the halo could be utilized to create a different shape in your ring to add an element of dimension and uniqueness, maybe a vintage feel!
Perhaps you take the basic idea of a solitaire ring, but rather than using a round brilliant cut diamond you might opt for a beautiful oval or even a pear! The addition of colored stones or possibly a black diamond would make for an interesting take on a classic style.
We love to watch the trends in bridal jewelry change and evolve, but what we love the most is to create jewelry for brides that truly reflects who she is and give her a ring that is as unique as her! We love to put personal twists on classic designs and use the special ideas from each individual client to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. Let us help bring your creative dreams to life and craft an engagement ring or wedding band that you will cherish forever!
