We loved seeing the gorgeous wedding gowns during Bridal Fashion Week, and we spotted some beautiful gemstone jewelry among the top wedding trends for 2016 and 2017. So we asked our friends at Braunschweiger Jewelers: Is there a ‘hot’ color of gemstone this season?
Robin Braunschweiger Silva, Marketing Manager for Braunschweiger Jewelers, shared the top gemstone colors for weddings this year:
“Rose Quartz has been rising in popularity in recent years and with the color just being named the Pantone Color of the Year 2016 we are seeing many requests for jewelry featuring that gemstone.
Rose Quartz does not only look beautiful but it is also known as the “Love Stone” and wearing it or holding it close is said to not only attract love but enhance love in virtually any situation, from self love, family love, romantic love and everywhere in between.
The Love Stone is a romantic pale pink color, the perfect accent to that blush colored wedding dress or a vintage inspired wedding theme. Often held close to one’s heart, Rose Quartz in a necklace is a great accessory for not only the bride, but bridesmaids or the flower girl.
Blue hues are also very popular right now, Blue Topaz comes in three different shades: sky blue, Swiss blue and London blue, it is one of the most requested gemstones by our clients. This stone adds a great pop of color to a simple black dress or can be worn causally with a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt. We are seeing it everywhere, from every designer, and set with or without diamonds.
Blue Topaz is the quintessential gemstone to choose for a “something blue” on your wedding day. Although not often used as an engagement ring, brides often wear Blue Topaz on their wedding day in a bracelet or necklace. For the brides who still want their “something blue” but it just doesn’t match with their wedding colors: try finding a blue topaz pin and hiding it in your bouquet – but remember to take it out before you toss the bouquet!”
