Some of the top jewelry trends of 2012 are also looks to watch in 2013. These styles have been growing in popularity, and they promise to be top picks for the year to come. Here are four jewelry trends that are going strong in 2013:
1. Pink Topaz Rings
The brilliant color of pink topaz has won it many fans, and it’s clear that this stone isn’t content to sit in the background. Pink Topaz Rings offer an eye-catching combination of girlish charm and daring appeal. For instance, the Emerald Cut Pink Topaz and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold puts a show-stopping 4.50 carat emerald-cut pink topaz on display, accented by 38 round diamonds that stud the band and form a frame around the center stone.
Vintage Rings have been popular picks for their time-honored style and irresistible feminine appeal. From bridal jewelry to gemstone rings for all occasions, the looks of the Victorian Era and the Art Deco Period continue to inspire many of most sought-after styles. For example, the Art Deco Diamond and Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold showcases a 7mm cushion-cut amethyst, 7mm square, in a unique 14K white gold setting that calls to mind the stunning style of the 1920s with a perfectly-carved pattern. Eight channel-set diamonds accent the band, completing a look that captures the best of the past.
From glittering diamond pendants to gemstone rings to wedding bands, hearts have been popping up in jewelry of many kinds. Whether you gravitate toward traditional styles or contemporary looks, there’s a piece of heart jewelry to suit your taste. These pieces are popular gifts that communicate affection in a way that few others gifts can. For instance, the Double Heart Pendant in 14K Yellow Gold presents a sparkling picture of the way that two hearts intertwine. The larger of the 14K yellow gold hearts in this piece is accented with diamonds while the smaller shining heart interlocks with it in perfect harmony. This pendant seems to capture an embrace and preserve the moment as a continual reminder of the love you share with that special someone.
4. Gold Crosses
While both white and yellow gold crosses are particularly popular right now, the message they convey is far from a passing fad. From minimalistic, gleaming pendants to diamond-studded styles, cross jewelry demonstrates the importance of your faith. In addition to cross pendants of many varieties, cross rings have also been sought after, from wedding bands to pieces for your right hand. For instance, the Women’s Diamond Cross Ring has been peaking in popularity for its sparkling statement. Five diamonds accent a petite but powerful cross on this feminine ring, allowing any lady to keep of reminder of her savior close at hand.
We’ll be looking at several of these trends throughout the week, so stay tuned for more on the looks that we’re sure to see a lot in the year to come. Happy New Year from Apples of Gold!
