Let’s face it, choosing an engagement ring is a big deal. The choice must perfectly embody your partner’s individuality and unique style preference, represent the love and depth of commitment you share, and be a wise investment.
No pressure, right?
For Braswell and Son’s engagement and bridal specialists, it’s an honor to assist Central Arkansas couples in discovering the stone and setting that speaks to them. Here’s a look at three stunning style trends we favor for 2017:
All About Detail
We are delighted by the return of understated, classic designs where the magic is in the finer details. Think of a soft-spoken classic round diamond set atop a contrasting yellow gold and diamond basket; or a gently colored gemstone paired with a surprise precious metal halo; or a deceptively simple band with a delicately jeweled filigree woven into the side view to showcase subtle elegance.
The Warmth of Rose Gold
Warm and romantic, the gold and copper alloy is a favorite among artisans. It flatters all skin tones and offers a lovely contrast for a classic diamond setting. Especially intriguing is the emerging trend of tone on tone; the play of a pale orange-pink morganite or a blush colored citrine set in rose gold. We also like no rules layering; the use of rose gold as a contrast in customizable stacking bands—the ultimate in personal expression.
Handsome, vintage era designs never go out of style. Alluring Deco and Edwardian period-inspired pieces marry bold geometry with intricately patterned settings, perfect for showcasing a traditional stone or an alternative black diamond or ruby. The daring yet delicate nature of the design is as important as the stone itself, and always reads as one of a kind.
