Carl Blackurn Talks Engagement Rings

28 Jan


I recently talked about a trend in engagement rings where some brides-to-be are considering colored gemstones rather than diamonds. However, Carl Blackburn seems to think diamonds are still a bridal jewelry trend, but now the style is turning toward vintage designs:


" In keeping with antique diamond cuts, vintage-inspired designs continue to drive engagement ring fashion trends. Everyone still remembers Madonna's beautiful Edwardian-style engagement ring, with its classic hand-engraved scroll work. One vintage style that is extremely popular this wedding season is the filigree engagement ring. Filigree is the ornamental work of fine gold or platinum that's carefully crafted into an openwork design. It's an art form that can be traced all the way back to 3rd century Greek jewelry. During the 1930s, platinum and 18K white gold filigree engagement rings were among the most sought after rings in both America and Europe. Today's jewelry designers have brought back the romanticism of this age-old art, taking elegance and sophistication to a whole new level. Enhanced with geometric patterns, floral cutwork, and milgrained edges (which lend the appearance of fine antique embroidery), these new filigree rings capture the breezy elegance and femininity so often found in today's young brides."
