The Hollywood jet set defines trends in fashion from the latest gowns to what next year’s bride will be wearing on her ring finger. Immediately after the first photo hits the information highway jewelry designers from Los Angeles to New York start counting the profits—anticipating an influx of new orders.
Nothing influences the retail and replica jewelry business like the announcement of upcoming celebrity nuptials. Celebrity designers like Harry Winston and Neil Lane create masterpieces that command hundreds of thousands of dollars per piece. The budget for the average bride-to-be is smaller, but she’ll still want a unique, dazzling design.
Before you decide which jewelry designer is going to make your special ring, check out several. Blue Nile and James Allen of New York have both been in business for years. According to Ira Weissman, who has written reviews for James Allen and other exceptional designers, James Allen has truly amazing design skills. He also offers an inventory of diamonds that can be viewed online with stunning clarity and detail for his customers.
An engagement ring should reflect your style, your passion and personality. If you fall head-over-heels in love with a celebrity’s engagement ring—by all means have a replica made. Choose a designer that has superior craftsmanship skills, communicates well, and has stones and settings that exceed your expectations.
What is Your Style?
Future brides want to show off their stunning engagement rings. They are looking for sparkle, dazzle, romance and brilliantly cut stones. Some of the trending ring styles today include new designs like the Miley Cyrus stunner with an antique center and renewed interest in Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond creation.
Fiancé Liam Hemsworth helped design the captivating 3.5 carat engagement ring he gave to rocker Miley Cyrus. He told MTV interviewers that he wanted something “beautiful and romantic”.
