Mark 2020 with your personality

A natural bride-to-be

Add flowers, pearl headbands, ribbons, or hippie braids to enhance your beautiful traits.
To complement the look, the engagement ring trends tend to be as special. Couples want more history, than modern. More yellows, cushion cuts and hand-mined diamonds, than movie-star choices.
2020 is all about jewelry impact with Georgian-inspired models, instead of minimalist ones. Of course, if you don’t want a big stone, you can opt for a band with more petite stones. If you can, reinvent old pieces or invest in vintage rings to be as sustainable as you can.
