2011 Engagement Ring Trends Inspired By Recently Wed Celebrities!

Special to OneWed by Jewelry and Style Expert, Michael O’Connor, and Platinum Guild International In looking towards the fashion trends of the future, designers often help us look back and remember fun times and gentler eras. Such is the case with the 2011 fashion runways, which provided a retro revisiting of the classic elegance of the 1950’s and early 1960’s, and the swinging spirited side of the late 60’s and 70’s. And while fashion designers have set the tone, bridal jewelry designers are also taking notice, creating fresh interpretations of these hot-off-the-catwalk trends. Here’s a sneak peek at the top 3 engagement ring trends for 2011! 1- Inspired by the hit television show Mad Men, classic dresses and classic engagement ring styles are back! Remember the timelessness of celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor? Think the sophisticated elegance of a polished platinum setting with a solitaire diamond, or a vintage-inspired engagement ring style with filigree (like Megan Fox's stunning vintage rock). Investing in classic styles is not only a wise choice from a wear-ability standpoint (since they will never go out of style), but the investment in a platinum engagement ring means that the ring you purchase today will last for a lifetime, and will be ready to hand down to future generations. 2- Color is Back! We’re seeing more colorful fabrics with exaggerated movement and ruffle detailing on 2011 fashion runways. This will translate into engagement ring designs incorporating colored gemstones such as citrine, sapphire, and ruby, set in platinum. Penelope Cruz started this trend with her sapphire and diamond engagement ring bling from Javier Bardem, and Carrie Underwood followed suit. And since platinum is a naturally white metal, it will maximize the brilliance of all colored gemstones. 3- Flower Power! In 2011, we’ll also see engagement rings with a variety of floral motifs inspired by the 70’s. Whether this design surrounds the center diamond, or it’s part of the engagement ring band, much of this intricate detailing can only be accomplished with a platinum setting. This engagement ring style is ideal for the romantic bride! With the upcoming 2011 season, today’s platinum jewelry designers are providing the versatility of design in pieces that are classic, colorful, and design-oriented to work with any era, while platinum itself is providing the long term value that allows you to enjoy your favored pieces daily and still hand them down to future generations. Did your fiancée pick out an on-trend engagement ring when he popped the question? Are you showing off a classic or vintage-inspired rock, colored gemstones, or intricate floral detailing? We want to hear from you, lovely brides, so let us know in the comment section below!
