Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day we see an increase in engagements. We believe this season brings family and friends together, so what better time to celebrate a new engagement? And, it gives you time to plan for a summer wedding!
This year, we’ve been noticing an increase in a few bridal trends that we wanted to share:
1. Yellow gold. This metal hearkens back to a more elegant and romantic time and its popularity continues to grow. Gold is a precious metal that is strong and timeless.
2. Two Tone. For those who are not sure about saying yes to a yellow gold engagement ring, we’ve seen an increase in two-tone bridal jewelry. This option allows you to have a touch of yellow gold, but maintain the presence of a white metal. Two-tone diamond rings also provide many brides the confidence to mix golds and not feel like they have to commit to a watch, earrings, necklace and bracelets in the same tone.
3. Halo free. We don’t believe diamond halos will ever be out of style, but we are seeing more and more brides choosing an engagement ring without a halo. In an effort to be different and stand-out from their friends they are breaking away from what was so popular for so long.
4. Multi-stones. Solitaires and single-stone rings with diamond halos and diamond shanks will always be classic. But this year we are seeing more multi-stone rings being selected than we have in some time. Couples preparing for marriage appreciate the symbolism of past, present and future, or you and me, in engagement rings featuring two or three stones.
Regardless of the ring you choose, remember that this is one piece of jewelry you are wearing every day, forever. Make sure this special piece represents your style and reflects what you love.
And for guys getting started on the process of purchasing a ring, our friends at The Plunge offer some great tips for shopping and selecting the perfect diamond.
A quick Google search of the term ‘handmade’ results in this definition: “made by hand, not by machine, and typically therefore of superior quality.”
At Danhov we take great pride in offering diamond jewelry collections that are handmade, and some that are hand-assembled. And regardless of handmade or hand-assembled, all of our bridal and fine jewelry is made in the USA.
At some companies, the term handmade is additionally interpreted as hand-assembled or hand-altered, or even hand-touched. When we say a diamond ring is handmade, we are talking about the most literal sense of the word – it really is made by hand. From start to finish, the piece of jewelry is made by the skilled hands of one of our expert jewelers. And we are honest and up front that some of our collections are hand-assembled – meaning that parts of the jewelry are individually created with a wax mold and then assembled and finished by hand to create the perfect ring.
Mass-production is not used at Danhov, and no manufactured-by-machine rings (that are then polished by hand and called handmade) have the Danhov stamp.
Our handmade and hand-assembled rings are produced one ring at a time by skilled artisans at our California office. This individual, hands-on approach further exemplifies the precision, quality and strength for which Danhov is known.
