Princess Diaries

Posted by on Mar 18, 2010 in Gem Trends, Gems, News | 2 Comments

One of the cool things about being a retailer that offers thousands of different gem options is that you get really interesting data on jewelry trends. It’s like having a 24/7 focus group with thousands of women all over the country advising you on what jewelry designs they like best. The biggest gem trend that we’ve seen on the Gemvara site during our first month is princess cut gemstones.

This isn’t totally unexpected. Princess cuts are the second most popular choice for engagement rings. According to a survey by The Knot of recently and soon-to-be married couples in March 2009, 29 percent of all engagement rings today are princess cuts. It makes sense that women who love princess cut diamonds in their engagement ring also love princess cut colored gemstones too. And some of the princess cut colored gemstones that our customers have ordered have been engagement rings. Couples are much more creative today when it comes to engagement rings, both in shape and color.

Here are five of our most popular princess cut gemstone designs. Since everything we make can be customized, they are available in any gem. The most popular gem choices in princess cuts so far have been amethyst and sapphire. I think peridot, citrine and red garnet also look great. What do you think?

    Amethyst is always my preferred choice, but they all look just lovely. The color of the citrine is astonishingly cute, and the olivine peridot also very attractive. Very nice selection indeed.
