2020 is proving to be a big year for alternative bridal! Brides are looking for something different, and there are many ways sapphires contribute to this trend.
Say goodbye to the classic round shapes in favor of new, trendy shapes such as pear, radiant, and emerald cut. Each stone lends a different look to the ring, and all of them can help the wearer express their individuality. Emerald cuts have been particularly hot leading into 2020, with their sharp lines, excellent clarity, and large flashes of reflection. They make for a show stopping piece every time!
Padparadscha, peach, and light Greenish-Blues are all the rage this year. Brides are turning away from past years that featured darker and more heavily saturated stones, the pastel colors are now having their time in the sun. Additionally we are seeing a rise in popularity of bi-color sapphires, that feature two colors in one stone. These are some of the most uncommon sapphires on the market and make something that is truly a special masterpiece.
The recent growth in popularity of irregular stones like salt and pepper diamonds has also translated into a bridal trend for all colored stones. Sapphires with certain inclusions can be gorgeous and can reflect the light in a wonderful way. If you can look past the imperfections, you can see some truly glorious pieces that have these remnants of nature right there inside.
Whichever bridal trend you choose to embrace, any of these suggestions are a great place to look for something rare and special that you can feel is truly your own.
