Jewelry Trends You Should Know This Wedding Season

Right from the engagement ring to the bridesmaid ensembles, jewels have always played a starring role in wedding festivities. From dainty bracelets to bold earrings, their styles change, and change again, creating a wondrous world of playfulness, artistry, innovation and expression. Today, couples craft their own trends and make their own statements. Today’s  bride is discerning; she knows great design. It’s important to her that such a special day be marked by meaningful jewelry that she can cherish and wear for years to come. Right now is the best time for the contemporary bride, given the unbelievable array of materials and technology. So whether you’re after something traditional or avant-garde, subtle or striking, this season’s trends can bring alive dream jewelry moments for every kind of bride.

Customization Is Key

What better way is there to express yourself through jewelry than to be a part of its creation? Jewelry design is a mesmerizing artform, one that allows you to experiment and get personal. At the same time, it allows for the creation of something that has never been done before. With bespoke jewelry, brides can push the boundaries of design and imagination, and come out of it with pieces that are truly in a class of their own. The process can also be a great experience for couples or even the bride and her best friends – seeing your unique vision brought to life certainly makes for a truly unforgettable experience.

Mix Those Metals

The days of matching one’s wedding jewelry or buying sets are long gone. This is another opportunity to get creative – pair a white gold band with a rose gold engagement ring, or layer three gold bracelets that are each a different color. This brings us to the next trend….

Stack Up

Just like in the fashion world, layering makes a world of difference. Chokers or collar necklaces pair beautifully with lariat necklaces, as do ear studs with danglers and ear cuffs…and everyone loves a well-curated stack of rings. Lots of brides are playing around with the concept of multiple wedding bands that fit perfectly with their engagement ring. And if you’re going the created diamond route, you can give each one of those layered pieces their own sparkle without breaking the bank!

Think Bigger!

Brides are gravitating more towards jewelry that tastefully spotlights a more exquisite and brilliant centre stone. Complex designs that feature multiple smaller diamonds and precious stones are being replaced by simple yet spectacular bling that is sure to turn heads, a la Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Paris Hilton’s engagement rings.

Bring On The Bezel

Minimalism is also having a moment in the world of fine jewelry. Brides are seeking designs that are understated, elegant and eternal – values that are perfectly exemplified by bezel-set jewels. Beyond their sleek appearance and contemporary curves, they also protect the diamond and showcase it almost like a photo frame.

Create Your Own Sparkle

A diamond can now be so much more than a girl’s best friend. Created diamonds are truly revolutionizing the world of jewelry – no one can deny the possibilities that come with the choice of a bigger and better diamond. Even Duchess Meghan Markle is on board! Plus, for a generation of individuals that are more conscious and mindful about what they spend on, created diamonds represent the best of both worlds. You can own an extraordinary Type IIA diamond and still be able to pay for your wedding or go on a nice holiday. For context, only the best 1 to 2% of mined diamonds can be categorized as Type IIA, so think: the Koh-i-Noor, The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond, The Regent Diamond and The Star of the South. What’s more, you can personalize even further with unique colors, shapes and cuts. Exciting, isn’t it?

Get Fancy

While round diamonds do have an inimitable appeal, fancy-shape diamonds are making a big impact these days. Pear, oval, emerald and cushion diamonds are gaining popularity, especially among celebrities, namely Karlie Kloss, Jennifer Lawrence, Priyanka Chopra and Gina Rodriguez.


Amish Shah, president of ALTR Created Diamonds, has never been afraid to challenge the status quo. After gaining experience, through his family business, in the diamond industry, and in fine jewelry at an early age, he joined R & R Grosbard Inc. in New York in 2001 and helped transform it into an international powerhouse. Ten years later, Amish took over its operations and led a merger with his family business, conceiving R.A. Riam Group in New York, which includes ALTR Created Diamonds. As the only vertically-integrated diamond enterprise that provides a true end-to-end product, it creates the purest form of diamonds (Type IIA diamonds) known to man.
