    Luxury Styles To Watch in 2018

    A new year means new, and sometimes old, styles to watch.




    This year looks to be the reemergence of 90's. With small sunglasses and 90's fashion making huge comeback, expect "colorful, bold, and extravagant" to be the words to describe 2018 in jewelry and fashion. Check out the list below to see what to watch in this year.






    1.) Statement Earrings

    Seen all over the fashion runways, statements earrings have officially arrived. Chandelier earrings that skim just above the shoulder create a dramatic and playful look to rock all year.

    Chandelier Earrings- 11. 88 carats total.

    Yellow and White Diamond Earrings- 6.08 carat weight total.








    2.) Hoop Earrings -

    There is a difference between statement earrings and hoop earrings, I promise. Statement earrings are worn for special occasion or events, hoop earrings are worn everyday.

    3.) Chokers

    But not just any simple choker. Diamonds, pearls, and colored gems will transform this piece to jaw dropping. You will become to the talk of the room as everyone will soon be following in your footsteps and wearing a diamond and pearl studded choker (2018 will be over the top.)








    4.) Stackable jewelry

    This look and style was everywhere in 2017. But it is such a diverse look that it is not going anywhere in 2018.








    5.) Sustainable Jewelry

    With people more conscious than ever of where their jewelry and clothes are coming from, sustainable lines will become even more popular this year. We carry a selection of sustainable luxury jewelry including Forevermark, John Hardy, and Heather B. Moore.  Forevermark  is at the forefront of responsibly sourced diamonds. With every Forevermark diamond originating at one of a handful of carefully selected mines that benefit the people, community and country where they are located. Forevermark traces each diamond along its journey, ensuring strict business, environmental and social standards are met at every step.

    Tips On How To Use Pinterest To Help Find The Perfect Ring For Her

    Similar to its other 200 million users a month, Pinterest gives me life. I spend hours scrolling through Pinterest finding inspiration on outfits to wear and pinning recipes I will never actually cook.


    Just like almost every girl out there, I have boards for “Wedding Inspiration,” and “Engagement Ring Inspiration.” These boards consist of hundreds of images of styles, designs, and cuts of what a girl loves in a ring. Which is why the boards are your best friend and secret tool in picking out the perfect engagement ring for your special someone.

    Pinterest is great for inspiration, but it is important to be mindful of what your budget, time frame, and style you are looking for. What you see on Pinterest may not always be in your budget, which is why it important to work with a great jewelry company to find a similar style in your budget.






    So, to help you out we put together five tips on how to utilize Pinterest to help you pick out the perfect ring for your other half.

    Go to a respected and American Gem Society (AGS) Certified jewelry store. A jeweler is like a doctor, a good one will be life saving and can save you time and money. (Hint: Gunderson’s is AGS Certified with over 70 years of experience.) For more information on what it means to be AGS Certified, click here.





    Scope their Pinterest page out before hand. This will help you get a better idea of what they want design, color, and style wise. Start searching through her Pinterest board at least a couple month in advance of when you plan to propose. Looking early gives you plenty of time to gage an idea of what she likes and time to order and even design the ring.


    Choose 3-5 photos as inspiration from the Pinterest boards. Having a couple photos on hand will help give your sales professional a better idea of what you are looking for.



    Talk to the important people in their life. Moms, sister, or best friends, anyone who knows her and her style best. They can help give you ideas and go through her Pinterest boards to show you which ones she would love the most. 





    Finally, take a breath and enjoy the moment. As you prepare to ask her to spend a lifetime together, think back to all the memories you have made together and why she is “the one.”






    A woman’s Pinterest page opens a door into what she wants in clothes, jewelry, and taste. Guys, utilize this to get a better understanding of what she wants. That way when she says “yes,” she will be thrilled with what you chose.

    Be Smart Folks, Insure Your Jewelry Against the Unknowns of Life
