In an age of tech and digital, we tend to take comfort in the nostalgia of vintage items. Classic lends itself to individuality because the jewelry is commonly one of a kind or a rare find.

In an era of mass produce, it's essential to shine in your own way. Because it evokes the passion and romance of years past, vintage inspired is desirable.

Often the techniques of vintage jewelry are very alluring because of the spectacular skillfullness such as hand engraving.

Rose Gold
Rose gold is not a new metal, but since Pantone introduced rose quartz as color of the year in 2016, it has had a resurgence.

Seen in the 19th century in Russia, it's a blend of yellow gold and copper. Rose gold has a warmth and softness that exudes romance. It's a very durable metal and doesn't require rhodium plating or dipping like white gold.

Because it is fashionable and feminine, we love it. Because it's unexpected and that makes it unique, we also love it.

Delicate Settings
Lifestyles have changed and many feel comfortable with a more minimalist look. We are seeing numerous customers who are interested in a delicate setting.

Brides are applying more emphasis on a single sparkling diamond and less on the band. They are purchasing classic solitaires or delicately accented engagement mountings.

This simple and elegant look also allows the wearer to emphasize her personality by stacking alternate bands in a variety of metals and shapes. This also gives her the flexibility to change-up her ring daily by wearing the piece in different variations of stacks.

Colorful Gemstones
Using colored gems has been favored in both vintage and contemporary jewelry.

Because of the color or meaning of the stone, pairs and people are often pulled to a stone. It really makes the ring an original and attaches significance to the piece.

We're starting out to see these exquisite pops of color as center stones, accented stones and on bands to complement the wedding ring. More and more we are also spotting ovals of all colors set in an east west facing mounting, which can be very chic.

Three Stone Rings
Thank you Meghan Markle for bringing back the timeless three stone engagement ring, very well fit for a princess!

We love Meghan's ring for numerous reasons, including the legacy diamonds more info from Princess Diana's personal collection and the cushion cut. Oh so elegant and beautiful with such view of past, current and future.

Or it could be that, it's just the opposite and you can tell someone what you don't like but you aren't sure what you do like.

Not to dwell ... there is always custom! Personalization has become more popular than ever with millennials who want to be a part of the full design exposure in creating a piece that is truly special to them.

Picking out the one for you!
How to pick what's right for you? Pin all you like, but you need to start trying on! It's common to love a ring in a photo, but it isn't until you try that piece on that you are able to understand if the look is right for you.
