We have previously written about the benefits of custom designed rings and the flexibility and choice that comes with creating a custom ring with Randor. This year, there have been some re-emerging trends in women’s ring designs that offer endless possibilities on how to use colour, cut and design. Here’s a brief overview on the elements that make up these three key trends!
Rose Gold is being chosen now more than ever as the base metal for custom design rings. It’s loved for its romantic pink hues and soft glow as it adds a different dimension than white and yellow gold does. This addition of colour in contrast to the diamond helps to accentuate design features of the ring. No wonder it is becoming a more popular choice!
Not only are we seeing more colour in metals like rose gold, we are now seeing it in diamonds as well. Have a favourite colour you want to work into your ring design? Coloured diamonds and contrasting metals are a trend we’re seeing more and more of in custom designs this year. Fancy colour diamonds are offered in a sparkling blue or a warm yellow hue and are being paired with an array of metals to create different textures, styles and looks.
Vintage sensibilities are showing up in many custom designs this year. The halo for instance, while a relatively new design, reflects the cluster ring that was popular in the 1980s. A halo features a center stone – which can vary in size – with a circle of smaller diamonds around it, creating a ‘halo’ effect. The design allows you to include more than one halo in a ring, depending on your taste. This creates a dynamic and layered effect to offers options on how to balance the center stone.
These three key trends are showing up everywhere in the custom design world. Like any of them in particular? We can work these ideas into your custom design easily to create a unique piece for your special day.
