As we come into the third month of 2019, the year’s trends are starting to become clear. Trends, however, don’t come out of a vacuum, and in many cases, the year’s “it” jewellery takes elements from the recent past to make something brilliant and inventive.
Today, we’re going to discuss some of the wedding band trends that are set to shake up the world of 2019.
Petite & Understated
Two of the big trends in postmodernist aesthetics are minimalism and maximalism. In the last year or two, the pendulum seems to be swinging back toward minimalism. What does that mean in jewellery? Minimalistic wedding bands are cutting away extraneous details and decoration to pack as much beauty and meaning into the ring.
When it comes to the understated elegance that’s popular in 2019, look no further than Henri Daussi, who’s wedding bands revel in being surprisingly narrow. The precious metals that are used in their designs are packed to the edges with so many beautiful pave-set diamonds that you can’t help be mesmerized by the white, black, and yellow diamonds chosen for these ladies’ wedding bands.
Colour, Colour, Colour
Young women are quickly turning away from cookie-cutter designs in favour of radically unique colours that express their tastes better. When it comes to wedding bands, this preference expresses itself as a modern fondness for the rich, pretty colour of rose gold (once popularized by the luxury-loving Russian aristocracy), as well as favoring coloured gemstones in jewellery that was once dominated by white diamonds.
Here at GMG Jewellers, we offer plenty of wedding band offerings that fit these aesthetic criteria: From the genius artists at Hearts on Fire, several collections feature creatively moulded rose gold decorated with high-quality HOF diamonds, such as Coupled, Regal, and the HOF Collection. We’re also in love with Montreal-based designer Claude Thibaudeau, who not only use blue diamonds, canary-yellow diamonds, and black diamonds, but also utilize the one-of-a-kind beauty of green gold!
As an expression of minimalism, the embrace of intricate details is a way of packing elements into as little space as possible while maintaining elegance and eye-catching quality. Intricate details that are favored in 2019 include features like textured precious metals, milgrain beading, and lacy scrollwork.
If you’re interested in the idea of the intricate, check out CrownRing. Their Rope collection of wedding bands perfectly encapsulates our last idea: Smooth faces with various finishes are available in this collection, where hidden ropes of twined gold and platinum capture the light in a breathtaking fashion.
We touched on the idea of women liking the DIY aesthetic that sets their jewellery apart from other women’s. Stackables put this into practice in a very direct way. Rather than having an engagement ring and wedding band on one finger, women are now wearing many different pieces at once. This requires that jewellery be designed to be complementary with several other rings.
Coast Diamond is an ideal choice if you’re looking for a sculpted wedding band that can be easily stacked with not only engagement rings, but also other rings.
