Cool Gemstones trends for 2017

Whether it’s a strange setting, an unusual cut or a colorful stone, these gemstone trends for 2017 stand out from the crowd. No longer are the pockets full of diamonds. Also there is no doubt that, when it comes to jewelry trends, the popularity of colored gemstones has skyrocketed.

Last year, there has been a very clear trend within coloured gemstones - a desire for blue stones.

No matter where they live, youngsters are overwhelmed by debt, rising housing costs, and a weak employment market. They marry later, sometimes forgoing the engagement ring for a simple wedding band. When they do opt for an engagement ring, they may be unwilling to go into debt for a diamond, instead choosing moissonite or cubic zirconia. They may select a lab-grown diamond as being more socially or environmentally acceptable.


When youngsters choose diamond engagement rings, they may choose unusual cuts and colours, such as this gray rose cut. 14k gold makes the ring more affordable. 14k yellow gold, gray and white diamonds ring.
