Just as clothing fashion changes from season to season, so does diamond jewelry enjoy different, new trends each year. Recession and personal economic instability always makes people think twice where they invest their money. During the past few years there has been noted quite a trend in diamond investments, because people know that by purchasing diamonds they invest in a very secure future for themselves and their family. So let’s check out a few of the most important trends in diamonds for 2015:
Purchasing colored diamonds
For decades, when people talked about diamonds they meant the white, clear and utterly brilliant stone. It seems this year people are more interested in purchasing unique and interesting colored diamonds. There are basically two types of colored diamonds available:
- Naturally colored diamonds- quite rare and very expensive/ not too many color options available as with treated diamonds
- Chemically treated diamonds which are less expensive than the natural colored ones
Regarding the popularity of colors and combinations, here you have a few trends:
- Diamond earrings- combinations of cluster set diamonds with black diamond accents. Yet another great trend is represented by diamond earrings in neuter color combinations such as espresso/cognac & white diamonds.
- Diamond rings- 14k rose gold combinations with dark blue colored diamonds. Typically, the ring style is quite complex just as its fancy color combination. Vintage diamond cuts also represent a huge trend for the year.
- Necklaces with pendants containing multicolored tiny diamonds in ceramic plates shaped in different styles
Experts agree that the most popular color for 2015 is the yellow, color which seems to take over the pink colored diamond which was favored for years.
Trending diamond shapes
This year, it seems more and more people focus their attention on purchasing high graded loose diamonds. They will use the diamonds in order to get the personalized jewelry they dream about. Jewelers agree that the number of people purchasing princess cut or heart shaped diamonds seems to be decreasing dramatically. Many consider the heart shape is not capable of reflecting the diamond’s true sparkle, while the princess cut has been a trend for about 30 years now, so it’s time to move on.
The shapes rather preferred include emerald cut that mirrors beautifully the best properties of the stone, pear cut and the classic round cut especially for earrings.
…Becomes something new, because a greater number of people this year opt for upgrading their diamond rings, earrings, necklaces. Some people may not have the economic freedom to purchase new jewelry, but they can afford to upgrade an old piece of jewelry. By upgrading diamond jewelry, its real market value will instantly increase. People can make safe investments by upgrading old diamond jewelry when they do not have the possibility of buying new.
