Novel Twists in Bridal Jewelry, Unusual Shapes and Surprises Inside

The bridal market has been all a-twitter lately with some of the new trends in engagement rings and wedding bands.  Gold and mixed metal rings are in vogue, as are unusually shaped stones and bands, and engagement rings that hide a sweet secret meant for the bride’s eyes alone.

George Press Diamond Engagement Ring

Today’s engagement rings have been featuring unusually cut stones. For example, kite-shaped diamonds which look like four-sided stars. Or this lovely oval center stone set in 18 karat white gold by George Press and surrounded by 0.90cts of round diamonds.

Gabriel & Co. Diamond Wedding Band

Or if you’re looking for a different shape in a wedding band, how about this Gabriel & Co. Diamond Wedding Band?  In 14 karat white gold, this band contains 0.26cts of diamonds and nests comfortably with your engagement ring for a winning combination.

Verragio Diamond Engagement Ring

Brides are also being wooed by engagement rings with sweet surprises meant only for their eyes. Most people view an engagement ring from the top as the soon-to-be bride holds out her hand or moves it about.  But future brides often spend countless hours admiring their rings from all sides, turning it this way and that to sparkle and shine in the light.

The sides of the settings have now become opportunities to enchant brides with special designs and even “secret” diamonds or other gems.

This 18 karat white gold Verragio Diamond Engagement Ring is a classic example of this technique with its yellow gold “underskirt” and a nosegay of  diamonds underneath that are nobody’s business but the bride’s. We’re charmed. Aren’t you?

Tacori Diamond Engagement Ring

This principle can be applied to more streamlined rings also. A modern setting from Tacori, this Diamond Engagement ring is traditional, yet unconventional, and still manages to intrigue with an unexpected display of side diamonds.

On this 18 karat white gold Diamond Engagement Ring, the surprise continues all around the band with curlicues and arches that few people will see besides the bride.  Maybe they help keep her ring in place, or maybe they are a love note just for her that says “you are loved in your entirety, as a whole, for all that you are and will ever be.” This is for her to know, not us.  We can only guess and wish it was ours.


The Wearing o’ the Green

March 17th is right around the corner, and with it the rollicking celebration known as St. Patrick‘s Day.  Now you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, but sure and begorrah, you better be wearing your green!

We love green stones at this time of year anyway, because they seem so symbolic of spring and regrowth.  Flowers are pushing up their leaves and before you know it , new grass shoots will be covering the lawns. Can’t you just smell the air after a spring shower….mmmmm.
This Marco Bicego Jaipur Color Tourmaline Ring captures that moment perfectly in 18 karat gold with green tourmaline. It’s enough to make us buy dozens of tulips and put them all over the house!

Or maybe you love the stately elegance of lilies? Then you may prefer these Doves Agate and Diamond Earrings in 18 karat white gold featuring green agate.  Look at that beautiful true green. These would look gorgeous with green eyes, blue eyes and brown eyes too! As long as they’re Irish eyes, and they’re smiling!


Finally, stop and admire the allure of this platinum George Press Diamond Eternity Band with 6.84cts of emerald cut diamonds, enveloped by two 18 karat gold channel rings, each set with 3.74cts of square peridot.  It deserves a parade all of its own!

So have fun on St. Patty’s Day, dance a jig if the spirit moves you, but above all wear your green.  Here’s wishing you the luck of the Irish!
