Nowadays, the simple band and diamond combination won’t always cut it, and likewise traditional rings can seem overdone or tired. What everyone is looking for in 2019 is a little bit of uniqueness. Though Italian rings are one of the most popular options, within that category there is still a mountain of choice, with dozens of incredible brands to choose from. Here are four up-and-coming ring trends of 2019, guaranteed to inspire you in your search for the perfect Italian creation:
Vintage rings: Though traditional can seem outdated, vintage jewellery is increasingly popular, as it results in an entirely unique purchase, and something you would not have necessarily considered. Even if you don’t fancy the idea of buying a ring that has belonged to someone else, perhaps just browsing the styles will give you inspiration for a modern alternative.
Coloured gemstones: Especially for engagement rings, a diamond represents the classic opulent gift. However, recently other hard stones have been considered very stylish, whilst having the same durability as a diamond. Sapphire rings, for example, are on the rise; it’s a very hard stone, and comes in different shades of blue, from the recognisable deep navy, to one so light it looks like a tinted diamond. Adding a pop of colour to a ring can also make it stand out on your finger and say more about your personality and individuality.
Rose gold: Why stick with the more traditional silver or gold ring? Recently, rose gold has been extremely popular, and for good reason. It is an elegant in-between, that has a slightly pinkish tint, perfect for someone who likes to be a little bit different. What’s more, if you aren’t so keen on the idea of a coloured stone, but still want the ring to pop, choosing a classic diamond with a rose gold band might be the way to do so.
Open rings: Another new trend that is sweeping the fashion world is the open ring, as opposed to the classic unbroken circle. This can come in many different styles, from an overlapping swirl, to a semi-circle, but however it comes it is sure to make you stand out. Equally it can add a little complexity to a plain band or highlight a stone that is set in a unique position.
These trends can all be mixed and matched. If you shop at a respectable jewellers or online store, such as at Nomination Italy, you are sure to find the perfect ring, especially with so much choice from established Italian brands.
