Signet & Pinky Rings
Have you thought, what is a signet ring? And how do I pull off a pink ring anyways? We’re here to help! Signet rings, simply put, are rings bearing a mark or seal, and are frequently worn on the pinky finger. Signet rings are part of the perfect pinky ring category.
Pinky rings aren’t just for the Godfather anymore. Pinkies provide one more opportunity to make a stylish, sparkling statement. There’s a reason it’s called the power pinky. Some argue pinky rings are the most feminine piece of jewelry one can wear. Dating back to the suffragette movement, back then women wore them as a symbol of self-love, and we are here for it!
Dating back to Mycenaean goldsmiths of the 13th century, the decorative art of enameling jewelry became particularly popular during the 1920s Jazz Age, when flapper girls wore jewelry and vanity cases accented with graphic blocks of color.
Now in 2023, these vibrant enamel accessories continue to prove a popular choice among jewelry lovers. This is a trend that’s been growing over the past few years, and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon!
Are pearls in style in 2023?
Yes, yes, and yes! While pearls are timeless and never really go out of style, in 2023 pearls are making a major statement as part of this year’s jewelry trends. From a classic string of pearls to big bold pearls and everything in between. Mix your pearls with diamonds and gold or let them shine on their own, pearls are back in a big way, and you won’t want to be left out of this gorgeous trend.
What jewelry will increase in value?
Jewelry made with diamond, gold, platinum, and even silver is likely to increase in value thanks to the rareness of the materials. Pieces with a more classic look will also retain their value better than pieces considered to be more trendy.
What jewelry does not depreciate?
Generally, fine jewelry does not depreciate and, in some cases, can appreciate or increase in value. Jewelry made from gold, platinum, silver, and diamonds will usually hold or increase its value.
What should I buy instead of gold?
Try silver or platinum if you are interested in fine jewelry but prefer a metal different from gold. And, of course, don’t forget about dazzling diamonds!
The trends ahead for 2023 are some of the best yet! In fact, most of these looks are actually timeless trends just finding their way to the current spotlight.
From sumptuous silvers, precious pearls, bold, beautiful cocktail rings, dazzling drop earrings, show-stopping cuff bracelets, raging punk pieces, and perfect pinky rings. The trends this year are some of the yummiest yet. So get yours today at JamesAllen.com to set the trends others follow.
