Modern Minimalism

Minimalism is a major part of the contemporary aesthetic. From art to fashion, minimalist designs are ubiquitous. Understated looks bolstered by eccentric silhouettes are defining elements of this style. These pieces exhibit straightforward designs focusing on geometry and a balanced chic. They often do so with subdued but bright metals like white gold or via bezel settings.

This Noam Carver bezel engagement ring has a sublime design featuring a distinctive, minimalistic chic. A bezel-set center stone bolsters the understated silhouette. Note that it fits radiant, cushion, asscher, and princess cut stones in addition to the distinctive emerald cut diamond.

Vintage Vibrance

Vintage jewelry can evoke images of yesteryear and styles impossible to find today. Designer brands craft a wide variety of jewelry that takes inspiration from these marvelous accessories, repacking and reinventing them to cater to contemporary tastes. While the term itself is broad – “vintage” being defined as between 20 to 99 years old – they all have a spectacular, unique style.

Consider this A.JAFFE Art Deco engagement ring. It has a unique and vibrant silhouette reminiscent of older, more eye-catching jewelry. The floral diamond-imbued halo conveys familiar but uncommon vintage imagery. Precious metal beading on the band and halo makes them stand out even more.

Fantastic Floral

In direct contrast to modern minimalist, nature-inspired or floral jewelry evokes images of flowers and trees. Wrapping silhouettes akin to vines, precious metal petals, and complex designs define these pieces. Due to their connection to nature, these pieces have a warm, pleasant glamor.

Simply Spectacular

For many, more is more. Some love creating a show of their jewelry through colorful gemstones, plenty of diamonds, and evocative designs. Engagement rings are no exception to this, and bridal jewelry designers offer a wide selection of mesmerizing and bold statement-making engagement rings.
