When you’re involved in the latter stages of your engagement planning it boils down to every little detail, including the jewelry and accessories that complement your elegant gown. Regardless of whether you are dressing ornate or sleek and simple, jewelry finishes off the entire look along with offering you the perfect way to flaunt your individual personality.
Wispy necklaces and rings including Chamise rings were the highlight of 2013, with a move away from the bling halo trends of the former years. However, the popularity of colored precious stone jewelry in oval and princess cuts have seen a dramatic rise in popularity. Here are some engagement jewelry trends to watch out for.
This wedding favorite is also making a strong statement at engagements with women wearing bigger and bolder pieces. Colors in black and gold look exquisite and spell wealth and prosperity. Adding the right amount of shine and color, chandelier earrings can be found in a wide range of textures, designs and metal options.
The hot ticket items include color gems and gold pyramid. Orange is the new black and it adds texture to slender chandelier options. It is important to note that minimalist doesn’t need to be plain.
Halo, Sapphire and Black Diamond Rings
Halo engagement rings are one of the trends being carried forward from last year. They are vintage-inspired and apart from enlarging the appearance of the center diamond, they also add appeal to the sparkle. Sapphire rings also look elegant basked in a halo of precious metals and make a great alternative to diamond rings.
Diamond engagement rings in black offer a sophisticated alternative to traditional solitaires and gemstone ring options. Sex and the City 2’s final scene featured a tear-jerking, romantic scene with a black diamond ring and Mr. Big saying to Carrie, “Because you are not like anyone else.” But if that’s not reason enough to fall in love with a black diamond engagement ring, know that these rings are also 2014’s newest and most stunning jewelry trend.
Oxidized/Black Rhodium Metals Pieces
Dark engagement jewelry options may not be witnessing a skyrocketing demand, but they’re present, and will regain popularity as long as consumers keep seeing darkened styles in brick and mortar and online stores.
Black Rhodium bracelets and oxidized rings can add a youthful and edgy vibe, while blackened metals are poised to add drama to brown rocks and pop to colorless diamond option settings.
Many women are opting to wear headband and tiara headpieces. This style can be worn alone at an engagement event and can also complement a traditional veil at the wedding.
The day of your engagement can be tied together with a jeweled headpiece, and it can also be matched with the bracelets and earrings. For example, floral headbands would be an ideal choice in the spring/summer season and would look chic when complemented with a bun or a side pony. It can be worn on the same side or balanced on the opposite.
Tourmaline Stones and Opals
These two stones will make a big impact in the entire industry this year and look elegant in engagement bracelets and necklaces. These official birthstones become even more special if the engagement is held in October. They can also be worn along with layers of pearls and chokers for adding purity to the occasion.
