There is nothing more fun to look at for a woman than jewelry. It’s like we wait our entire lives to get married but then someone else buys us the most important ring of our lives. It’s ironic if you think about it.
Even though personally I am not a high jewelry wearer, in fact I generally only wear one piece at a time, I do love to look at the styles out there. I am a woman after all. I have traded in my engagement ring once before and some day I hope to break down the diamonds for a necklace for my daughter.
The solitaire is one of the most understated and overstated rings. A single diamond that can be petite as a princess or as gaudy as statement jewelry, but nonetheless with all the beautiful shapes, colors, and sizes out there, you can find exactly what you are looking for and show off the one diamond you love the best.
Of course, any more a solitaire doesn’t have to be just a single diamond. From a vintage look, classic look, or single set, there are some incredible brands that are certainly showstoppers.
Rings with a splash of color
Just like wedding dresses are getting trendy in off colors and bright sashes, you can also get colored diamonds in pink, black, chocolate, and even blue. I am not 100% sure if this is something that I would be interested in personally, at least not for a wedding or engagement ring. I like the sentiment of purity in a brilliant white diamond, but I do believe they would make beautiful anniversary presents or hand me down rings from mothers to daughters. I read somewhere a long time ago that diamonds that have an off color are actually flawed, but jeweleries have found ways to market them.
I have no idea how true that statement is.
Not to leave the men out (after all, marriage is two people…) when are talking about a little bit of color, there are also options black tungsten rings to be used as tungsten wedding bands and Hildalgo that come in stackable and engravable looks. I am not sure Hidalgo is actually for me, but to me many of the styles have a masculine flare to me.
Here are two that I think are beautiful regardless of whose hand they go on:
For woman wedding bands, you can go all out as well. I have seen so many styles that are not just traditional circles of gold or silver, but some can get seriously intricate like Kira Kirk.
My hands down FAVORITE type of ring in the wedding band area however is the diamonds all the way around.
Simple yet incredible.
But those types of rings are in the thousands.
I guess Ill just have to marry someone rich!
Or maybe a jeweler. That would probably be easier.
