Could diamonds be on their way out?
Probably not, but there has been a rise in popularity over the past few years of alternative coloured stones gracing the lefthand ring fingers of newly engaged brides. Maybe it’s a millennial thing or just a sign or the times, either way, this is one trend that can’t easily be ignored. Even the Duchess of Cambridge has a massive sapphire on her ring finger!
Although this trend is popular with the 20 to 30’s crowd, a unique stone makes the perfect option for a second-time bride looking for something extra special and different. Even other celebs like Halle Berry, Jessica Simpson, and Olivia Wilde to name a few, don vibrant coloured sparklers instead of the traditional diamond. So, will we be seeing more and more of this colourful trend? We don’t think it’s disappearing anytime soon.
