Exciting Jewelry Pieces featuring the Brilliance of Swarovski Genuine Gemstones & Swarovski Zirconia
Bridal today is the preeminent segment for unbounded innovation and abundant inspiration in jewelry design. Beginning with the all-important engagement ring and embracing all kinds of possible wedding jewelry for the bride and her groom, Bridal also proposes beautiful pieces for members of their families and close circle of friends. Bridal jewelry pieces are as multifaceted as the brides who wear them and continue to reflect the multitude of cultural traditions to which they belong. Traditional world cultures, which often embrace rich, vibrant colors, are now influencing western brides to stray from their traditions of pure brilliant white to embrace more vivid personalized bridal pieces. One stunning example is this modern Indian bridal piece by Surya Golds; an intricate, traditional cuff infused with contemporary styling. Fashioned out of 14k yellow gold and set with Swarovski Zirconia in various colors and cuts, it is just one of the fascinating Cultural Roots pieces featured in Swarovski’s Gem Visions Bridal Book.
In the West, the choice of colored stones, which began with the introduction of subtle and innocent pastels, has gradually progressed to fully blown, color-saturated stones. One such stone, the stunning blue Ceylon sapphire in the engagement ring given to Princess Diana, the late 20th century’s ‘Queen of Hearts’, ignited significant interest in this fascinating gemstone. The ring, now worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, has sparked renewed popularity for blue sapphires with today’s on-trend brides-to-be. They are even subtly integrated into the wedding rings themselves. And in the popular bridal tradition of ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,' Japan’s Citizen Jewelry Company is offering its Something Blue collection made with Swarovski Genuine Blue Sapphires.
But, as beautiful as sapphires are, the spotlight is also on colored stones of different hues. Some like it hot as in bold crimson red and even others revel in shades of bewitching green. Berricle is now featuring a collection of stunning solitaires made with sparkling red and green Swarovski Zirconia in the beautifully feminine Princess cut.
Still, the devotees of brilliant white will not be denied. www.jckonnline.com has engaged in for attention-grabbing web research into the most pinned engagement rings on the Pinterest social media platform. An impressive 63,000 pins make the Verragio engagement ring set with a brilliant white zirconia one of the top contenders.
Also in the headlines is the Body Art jewelry trend, which is making a dramatic entrance into the bridal sector as seen expressed by this elegant and original, back-hugging pendant rope made with Swarovski Zirconia, as seen in the Gem Visions Book. Not to be outdone, there is one specialist area of bridal jewelry that has been making a crowning comeback – the regal tiara. One extremely contemporary example is from Japanese artist Nakaba Kowzu, who has created a real work of art made with Swarovski Genuine Topaz. Together the blue stones represent a family of stars somewhere in the universe and according to the artist the botanical ivy-like spiral formation represents gravity and time. An earlier design made with Swarovski Zirconia graces the cover of Swarovski's Gem Visions Bridal Book.
