- Signet Rings
Traditionally, signet rings were worn on the pinky finger and used by religious leaders, pharaohs, and gentlemen involved with business or politics. This kind of ring was historically marked with a unique family crest and used to mark and seal important documents by pressing the face into hot wax before being used to print a signature.
Today, signet rings are a classic fashion statement worn by men and women alike. It is a trend to wear heavy signet rings with engravings or a stone setting. People are veering towards statement pieces with unique designs, which are most achievable when you create a custom ring.
- Tennis Bracelets & Necklaces
A tennis bracelet or necklace contains a symmetrical pattern of diamonds or gemstones, connected by a thin, precious metal chain. The bracelets typically feature stones of the same size, shape, color, and clarity. This jewelry gets its name from the professional tennis player, Evert, who paused a tennis match to look for the thin diamond bracelet that fell off her wrist.
Tennis bracelets and tennis necklaces are an elegant yet simple piece of jewelry for everyday wear that adds a little something extra to your daily attire.
- Vintage Designs
Jewelry designs that were popular 50 to 100 years ago are coming back in style now. The most common example is the ongoing obsession with coins and medallions. Medallions can be in the form of charms or animal shapes as well. The metal used in such jewelry is often oxidized to give that authentic vintage look. Overall, the 2023 trends are gravitating towards uniqueness.
- Fancy Shaped Diamonds
Pear and marquise cut diamonds are appealing to the timeless, unique, and playful aesthetic of today’s brides. While the traditional round cut diamond will never go out of style, this jewelry season, stores are seeing a rise in demand for more offbeat diamond shapes like the pear and the marquise. Brides want something different for their engagement ring, and top-quality diamonds in unique, flattering shapes are just the thing they want.
- Bold Colors
Keeping with the ongoing trend of standing out, bold, colorful jewelry seems to be all the rage these days. In the diamond category, customers are preferring colored diamonds way more than they did before. People’s taste in picking diamonds is becoming more fun and flirty this year.
- Diamonds and Pearls
Partly due to their evergreen charm and because of the influence of celebrity figures, like Kamala Harris, pearls are in vogue like never before. This year, designers are amping up the contrast by combining these seaborne gems with edgy diamond styles. Diamonds and pearls make a magical combo that is both versatile and light. It is a fresh white-on-white pairing that literally glows.
- Layered Chains
2023 is expected to be defined by a look comprising a mix of dainty and bold chain necklaces. Yellow gold options with diamond pendants or charms are particularly popular. As more jewelry enthusiasts experiment with different chain lengths and pendant sizes for a layered look, this year has something fresh in store for the minimal jewelry aesthetic we all know and love.
- Earring Huggies
Huggie earrings sit close to your earlobe. They are a style of hoop earrings that are small and hug the ear. This means you can choose diamonds that are fewer in number and chunkier in shape. Huggie earrings have become increasingly popular, both for their look and practicality. As earring huggies are a lot smaller, they can be more comfortable to wear. They are less likely to get in your way when you are doing everyday tasks.
- Three Stone Engagement Rings
“Why have one diamond when you can have multiple?” said the brides-to-be of 2023. Also known as trinity rings or trilogy rings, three stone engagement rings have three diamonds set horizontally in a row. They are a fan favorite as both engagement rings and anniversary rings. There are several engagement ring settings and styles to choose from in this category.
- Gender-neutral Pieces
Jewelry that blurs gender lines is the flavor of the year, as it should be. Diamonds have always been gender agnostic and as more designers create unisex styles that anyone can wear and love, the rise of gender-neutral jewelry is unstoppable.
Think “live in” jewels with androgynous designs that are more comfortable and discreet. You never have to take them off. This translates to smaller diamonds, cleaner lines, and minimalist looks that speak to both masculine and feminine tastes of the 21st century.
