Imperiali says the changing jewellery trends give consumers variety every season, but like a little black dress, the classics are always great picks. Diamond trend forecasts are usually done a year in advance; jewellers find trends through cinema, fashion, exhibitions and their consumers buying trends. What’s important is to find a trend that not only suits your personality, but also has some meaning behind it. Scroll ahead to know more about Forevermark’s four major trends for the next season.
Enigma: Focus on geometry, and the power constructed geometry can give to you. For example, a mandala shape can be interpreted by one person as a flower, and by another person as a star. Geometry proves as the base of the product, but the diamond itself can take so many different shapes depending how it is cut.
Culture fusion: A culmination of not just East-meets-West, but also a clash of cultures that wouldn’t usually be put together. We especially loved their India meets South Italy piece.
One-of-a-kind: Using pink gold and black gold to create one-of-a-kind looking pieces [will be a trend]. We now see women who are more confident to set their pieces in colours other than the usual white and yellow gold. Setting your pieces in a different a unique gold is a great way to express your individuality.
What should you be asking while making your purchase?
It’s important to know all the facts about your diamonds before you make the purchase. A rock the same size could cost half the amount because of compromised quality. Here are the questions Imperiali says you have to ask before buying your next diamond:
How to make sure your diamond has been responsibly sourced?
Buying a diamond is a very special process, but knowing it’s been responsibly sourced gives it even more meaning. Only one per cent of the world’s diamonds can get a Forevermark inscription, which proves they are sourced responsibly. The process of selection is extremely strict, and goes beyond the 4Cs to make sure the diamond is at an ultimate level of purity.
What you should be buying if you are making your first purchase?
Make sure your first purchase is a classic, like a pair of stud earrings, that you can convert into a new piece of jewellery at a later stage in your life. Your studs can always be changed into a pendant or a necklace should you so choose.
Which diamond shape should you buy?
Round diamonds are always great, but this year a huge trend is to buy a cushion square cut, surrounded by baguettes that works as a great contour to the diamond. It looks geometric and modern, and is an unexpected silhouette.
Fun facts about diamonds
Did you know it takes 45-60 KBR of pressure to create a diamond? To give you some perspective, this is equivalent to putting the point of the Eiffel Tower upside down on your hand.
Did you know that a diamond is so rare, that every diamond ever cut and polished would fit in a London double decker bus with room to spare?
