We are excited to see other websites showing an interest in Fine Colored Diamond Bridal Jewelry and thank The Pink Ladies for their support!

Extraordinary Rings

Thursday, February 28th, 2008
Why do engagement rings get to have all the fun? Who says your wedding ring has to be the boring one? Wedding rings are becoming more of a fashion statement all on their own! From celebrities like Brad Pitt designing their own custom rings, to high-powered working women who want a clean look to wear everyday, wedding bands are becoming the center of attention!

One designer whose work just blows me away is Etienne Perret. His pieces are so creative, so gorgeous, soooo stunning. You’re not just buying a piece of jewelry, it’s an investment in a piece of art. Some of these rings can even be worn as the engagement ring AND wedding ring like the triple curved channel band above.
This look is so multi-faceted; from contemporary to classic to traditional to unique, these awe-inspiring creations are the perfect symbol of your union as husband and wife. They’re sure to be pieces that you will love to wear every day, and someday pass down.

What Colors are Hip?

Did you know that there are certain trends regarding which hues of colored diamonds are most popular? Apparently, although not entirely surprisingly, the popularity of different colors of diamonds is correlated to a number of different factors such as function of the piece of colored diamond jewelry, season of the year and even the region it was purchased!

An interesting site, Diamond Maestro's Blog, has suggested that colored diamonds purchased for bridal jewelry are most commonly pink or yellow which is not surprising at all. More interestingly, fall diamond purchases are commonly in cooler champagne to cognac shades as opposed to brighter summer hues. Sales analysis even supports that metropolitan consumers favor the less common and more spectacular blues, greens and black diamonds as opposed to consumers from less urban environments!

Here at Etienne Perret Colored Diamond Jewelry we enjoy working with any and all shades of natural color and color treated natural diamonds! Our Engagement Ring Designs are available in not only yellow and pink, but with diamonds of any shade, from brilliant color treated blues and greens, to the warm earthy shades of champagne and cognac. Black diamonds are an especially popular choice in Etienne's Mens' Wedding Band designs. Another very popular Etienne design is the Rainbow Channel Band, encompassing all colors of the rainbow into one breathtaking wedding band/fashion ring!
