Be honest with yourself, does this diamond trend truly represent your style?
Let’s face it, if finances were endless, we’d all be dripping in the latest diamond trends, but this is not the case for all. For most of us, investing in a gorgeous diamond piece, especially a diamond engagement ring, means we’ve given a lot of thought to the style. Our intention is of course to wear it for many decades to come.
Observing diamond trends is a great way to discover diamond cuts and setting styles you might not have considered otherwise. For example, a trend towards oval cut diamonds has recently brought these beauties into the limelight. This has inspired jewellers to stock up on them. A couple looking for a unique diamond engagement ring (trendy or not), is now spoilt for choice in this previously unsung cut.
Even outdated trends are worth looking at and exploring. Think of the high-set solitaires of the 1960’s, or the chunky geometrics of the 1980’s. Could your ideal ring lie in the hot pages of yesteryear as opposed to current trends?
Complete fashionistas should be careful of copying very defined red carpet looks when it comes to making long term choices. Which an engagement ring certainly is. Rather opt for the simplest style that warms your heart, but with a twist to make it uniquely yours. For example, a classic solitaire diamond engagement ring can always have a funky design element to set it apart from the rest. Think prominent claws or a little feature on the side of the setting.
