Colour is in! This autumn, the catwalks were crammed with rich, colourful hues for all occasions. Whether you’re dressing up for work, dressing down for play, or slipping into a wedding dress on the Big Day, adding colour to your wardrobe is encouraged like never before.
Brides are finally realizing that it’s okay to deviate from the norm. In fact, branching out from the traditional diamond ring and white dress can make your wedding day that much more memorable and unique. Newly engaged couples shouldn’t fear making a statement. Designers are enthusiastically creating wedding dresses in a variety of colours including bold reds, deep blues, and even black.
Perhaps we owe it to Kate Middleton, or maybe this new trend would have erupted regardless, but it is undeniable now: engagement rings with colourful gemstones are the height of fashion.
While diamond engagement rings remain the most popular item of jewellery with which to pop the question, sapphires, rubies, and other gems are seeing a big increase in popularity.
If you’d like to stick with the traditional diamond but you are looking for something a little bit different, you could opt for custom-made wedding band designs, or add a splash of colour on either side of the main diamond. The diamond will stand out even more against the contrast of the coloured stones.
Think about what colours look best with your skin tone and opt for a ring that accentuates your natural colouring. At Ingle & Rhode, you can find a number of stunning, ethically-sourced gemstones for custom-made jewelry. Looking for something with that splash of colour? Pick out the gems you have your heart set on, and let us create a ring tailored to your exact specifications.
