Drumroll, please! To follow are the five best pieces of the year, five rings that are true standouts for their exquisite style and flawless craftsmanship. This year’s top picks include both wedding bands and stunning gemstone rings, all of which display undeniable beauty, and all of which have proven their popularity.
Vintage styles are an obvious theme in the best jewelry of 2013, but that’s not all the top five have to offer. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the best jewelry of the year:
The Antique-Style 1/3 Carat Diamond Wedding Ring Set: This vintage bridal ring set is a celebration of love that’s made to last. A third-carat round diamond is the focal point of this striking pair; it glimmers elegantly from the engagement ring and is surrounded by a meticulously-crafted design of swirls and openwork that calls to mind the feminine motifs of the Victorian Era. The slender, perfectly coordinating wedding band curves alongside this ring in perfect harmony, creating a picture of the way that a husband and wife walk through life as one.
The Vintage Rose Kunzite Ring in .925 Sterling Silver: Also inspired by the Victorian Era, this antique-style gemstone ring places a softly glimmering gemstone in a distinctive setting. A sizable oval-shaped kunzite, a unique stone with a demure violet-purple hue, is perfectly complemented by numerous carved flowers that give this ring a decidedly ladylike feel. Crafted in top-quality .925 sterling silver, this ring is affordable as well as beautiful.
The 1/2 Carat Art Deco Black Diamond Ring: The glamour and excitement of the 1920s come to life in this classy ring. A half-carat round black diamond emerges from the petals of an opening lotus flower that’s been expertly crafted from 14K white gold. This shining blossom rises from a band that’s adorned with a carved leaf and swirl motif that provides the perfect contrast in texture, while keeping with the floral theme.
The Handmade Paisley Floral Wedding Band in 14K White Gold: The touch of a skilled craftsman is obvious in this handcrafted wedding ring. This Victorian-inspired band has been meticulously carved with a demure design of swirls and open flowers that captures the romance of a bygone era. Formed from cool 14K white gold, this 3mm-wide ring is soft and feminine, with a sweet sense of style that sets it apart.
The Emerald Cut Pink Topaz and Diamond Ring 14K White Gold: This attention-grabbing style gorgeously showcases one of the top trends of 2013: bright, eye-catching color. Like all pink topaz rings, this stunning piece features a vibrant gem that’s both bold and undeniably feminine. A 4.50-carat emerald-cut pink topaz, a full centimeter high, is the star of this ring, and it’s framed by glittering round diamonds. Additional diamonds stud the slender band that holds this show-stopping gem, contrasting its daring hue with colorless sparkle.
It’s not hard to see why these five pieces have earned the honor of being the best jewelry of 2013! These rings are impossible to ignore.
