Gold rings are forever young classics. This is both a gift for a celebration, and a symbol of fidelity and love: an engagement ring or a wedding ring. Many retain a fondness for simple, sleek designs, but when custom made, buyers want to see a special, trendy, and original ring. What are the trends in the manufacture of gold rings in 2022?
An alloy with copper and silver, which gives gold a pinkish tint, makes jewelry more durable, which becomes a special plus for rings – they will retain their appearance for a long time and will not suffer from scratches. A delicate peach shade is liked by those who are already tired of the standard yellow gold.
When ordering rose gold rings, shoppers opt for stylish, understated designs with unusual details such as matte inlays, twisted bands, stone or enamel inlays.
White gold is preferred by those who like cold colors. From smooth to matte, with stones, combined with gold of a different color, these rings meet the current trends for strict lines and bold combinations.
You don’t have to stop at one material. Gold can be combined in different shades with each other or other components can be added to it. Rings look unusual, in which half of the rim is smooth, and the second half is decorated with carvings, weaving or metal in a contrasting color.
More and more customers are choosing unexpected shades for finishing: it can be black or dark enamel. Matte gold rings are also gaining popularity. Some will like an even, velvety finish or a subtle streaked texture. A popular trend is mokume gane. This technique gives a wood-like pattern and is achieved with a mixture of multi-colored metals.
Rings with one large stone are still in demand. However, customers are moving away from transparent solutions to more fashionable brightness: they choose emerald, ruby, sapphire. Gold rings also look modern, completely covered with bright stones along the rim or decorated with their scattering, forming a pattern.
Two or more types of precious stones can also be combined in fashionable gold rings – excessive modesty is a thing of the past.
Also, enamel of different shades is used for inlay, which picky customers combine with engraving in the form of memorable phrases, names, runic script or elvish writing.
Not only a play of colors can make a gold ring trendy. Very popular in the new season are rings made in the form of knitting: braids, links, Celtic weaving. Wedding rings look unusual, in which the pattern seems to be sawn lengthwise in two – this symbolizes the unity of the couple.
Especially fashionable rings rely on asymmetry: the rim can be made in the form of two rings shifted relative to each other. Gold rings with moving parts are also interesting: the central part of the rim or its edges can spin. It looks unusual and allows you to calm your nerves by touching and twisting the ring.
