Brilliant – a symbol of loyalty to a pair
When I look at my wedding ring, which I call my cocktail ring for my right hand, because the union associated with it resembles a fairy tale now, the thought comes to mind that diamonds really are a symbol of magnificence, Robin writes McKacken (Robin McMacken) in an article published by the online newspaper Springfield News-Sun on the portal .
What does it tell us that love – in any of its forms, including the act of my mother, who gave me her wedding ring before I got engaged – more than a diamond?
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I love (yes, it really is) becoming a hopeless romantic and finding out what the trends are in diamond jewelry.
Let’s talk about true love.
A promise bonded with a diamond engagement ring symbolizes the depth of commitment between a man and a woman, just as it did in the 15th century, when the Austrian Archduke Maximilian presented the engagement ring with the diamond of Mary of Burgundy, which was the first recorded case of such a gift.
Since then, the diamond began to light hearts.
According to a national survey conducted by Sears among more than one thousand people, the upcoming Valentine’s Day will be a memorable date for many couples.
Forty percent of men and women who have love relationships with each other say that they either expect or plan to get engaged on February 14.
According to Sara Johnson, director of digital marketing at James Free Jewelers, which has stores in Dayton and Cincinnati, buying diamonds in them all the time throughout the year, but she says, “we celebrate their increase as Day approaches Valentine’s Day until the end of spring. ”
John Stafford, CEO of Stafford Jewelers in Miamisburg, confirms the importance of Valentine’s Day.
“Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular dates for buying diamonds, as this is the perfect day to make an offer to the one you love,” said Sonu Singhvi, co-owner of Centerville and Troy, Elizabeth Diamond.
“This holiday is marked by hearts and cupids and all that love means,” she notes.
What trends are outlined
There are several trends in the styles of the most popular wedding rings.
Elizabeth Diamond’s Tacori line of rings is inspired by time.
“In the Tacori rings, heirlooms of family jewels are noticeable,” says Sonu. “The shades of antiquity in jewelry are very fashionable. … People want to wear jewelry that looks like they have always been in their families.”
The eye-catching jewels are back in fashion, says Roxane Barry, director of investor relations for Irving, a company based in Texas-based corporation Zales. She says that brides choose rings with a diamond in the center framed by smaller diamonds, which adds more brilliance to the ring.
As for the shape of the diamonds, then, according to Stafford, in this regard, round-cut stones excel, followed by radiant, princess, and oval cut stones.
“Diamond jewelry feels a flow of different trends, which mainly relate to floral and vintage diamonds, jewelry made by Eternity and Infinity, and colored diamonds,” says Johnson.
She sees a shift towards a more subtle, natural and generally “pleasant” design.
I found that almost any fine jewelery retailer — whether it’s an independent store or a chain store — offers someone a pleasant buyer’s St. Valentine’s Day benefit.
At James Free, for example, if you buy more than $ 500, before 4:00 pm on February 13, the shop will send a bouquet of red roses from Oberer’s Flowers to your loved one.
Stafford Jewelers is currently running an advertising campaign in conjunction with the WDTN Channel 2 channel, during which viewers can win a $ 5,000 gift certificate. Visit this jewelry company page on Facebook or on www.wdtn.com and find out more. (The contest ends on February 10.)
The Elizabeth Diamond Company offers a Norwegian-style cruise (for two for four days and three nights) to the Bahamas with the purchase of an engagement ring costing more than $ 2,500.
