Diamond rings are elegant, classy, and timeless. Or so you thought. A look at 100 years of diamond ring evolution reveals that this luxury item does change over time, albeit gradual and subtly. During the early 1900s
the most popular trend was lacy white on white that reflects the Edwardian period. Ten years hence to the thirties, we’d see white gold become the de facto precious metal for diamond rings. By 1950s
fancy diamonds came around, featuring emerald cuts, pear, marquise and heart-shaped styles. Likewise, platinum became the standard precious metal, replacing white gold. However in the eighties, gold accompanied by channel set mountings became a trend. Today diamond rings like Hearts On Fire
keep adapting to fashion trends promoted by celebrities and fashion gurus alike.
Hearts On Fire is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive and at Short Pump Town Center and Carry Town.
