The custom of rings has prevailed from the most remote times and finds a mention even in the Holy Scriptures. Rings, by far, are the most subtle statement jewellery pieces adorned by both sexes. Delicate or statement-making, they adorn your fingers and lend a perfect sense of beauty each time your hands get noticed. Rings, today, are not only restricted to wedding bands, but are for everyone who want to make a statement of their individual style.
The Season's Glimmer
Year after year, the fashion and jewellery industry churns out a range of trends for the seasons to follow. While diamond and gold rings will not wear off the trend, titanium rings, especially in white, have made a huge comeback with their striking impression of platinum.
Breaking away from classic shapes, today's trendy rings are all about geometry. Innovative shapes, like a bezel or halo setting create a lot of visual interest and add extra shine. Not far behind are men's rings, which have also become a rage these days, especially bands in different metal tones and finishes.
The Stone Edge
This season will see a huge wave of rings in emeralds, rubies and sapphires. The classic diamond solitaire has made a huge comeback, though this season most women are opting for two carat diamonds or larger. In terms of popular cuts, the marquise cut, emerald cut, pear-shaped cut and heart cut are most preferred.
A lot of people are now keen on experimenting with various designs as an expression of their individual tastes. Antique style settings have also become a big hit. Diamond intensive designs, filigree, textured gold is in. While diamonds will forever remain the popular choice, most people prefer diamond rings, in white gold or platinum.
For Special Occasions
Cocktail rings: This upcoming season look for oversized gemstones, eclectic patterns and gloss to accentuate your signature look. Oversized cocktail rings with giant metal flowers to big rocks and stones, the trends in rings lean towards designs that stand out.
Engagement rings: The hottest trends, this year, include the classic solitaire, vintage rings, split shank bands and bold combination designs.
Wedding bands: Historically, the bride and also the groom wore wedding rings of the same design. Stylish bands in different metals, colours and styles now replace this trend. The trends in men's wedding bands seem to be changing more rapidly than those in the women's category. Today, men are opting for Titanium wedding bands. They are lightweight, yet strong. From braids to basket weaves, intricate trellis bands are becoming a popular way to give your ring an elegant level of texture.
