Online jewellery retailer Leibish&Co has put the spotlight on colourful engagement rings this season.
Consumer passion for coloured gemstones has completely revolutionised the jewellery industry in the past few years, turning once achromatic window displays into riots of colour.
This demand for coloured stones has been strong in the bridal market too, with a significant focus on engagement rings adorned with coloured stones, with and without diamonds supporting the piece.
Internationally recognised specialist and online dealer of natural fancy coloured diamonds and colour diamond jewellery, Leibish&Co, has been catering for this shopper with its extensive collection of gemstone bridal jewellery.
As consumers increasingly look for more choice and, more specifically, to purchase something a little different, many are seeing other gemstones as viable options for their engagement rings.
While yellow and pinks diamonds have been the most popular products for family business Leibish&Co throughout 2016, the company has seen a rising interest in Emerald, rubies and Sapphires and expects this trend to continue throughout the next 12 months. The company believes this is in part due to the increasing number of celebrities adorning themselves in the classic coloured stones.
Partnering up with ethical gemstone mining company, Gemfields, Leibish&Co offer consumers sustainable engagement rings too. Looking ahead, the classic and legendary gemstone trinity will take the place of diamonds in a colourful and ethical expression of love.
To name but a few, Ruby engagement ring options include an elegant oval red Ruby solitaire ring, with colourless round brilliant diamonds set on the shank, a vintage inspired oval Ruby and diamond basket ring crafted in platinum, and an unusual 2.72ct pinkish-red marquise Ruby and triangle diamonds engagement ring.
On the Emerald front Leibish&Co offers consumers Art Deco styles which place the Emerald centre stage, alongside diamond adorned double halos, fancy shank dress ring designs and gold touches in the form of yellow diamonds and yellow gold prongs.
When it comes to Sapphires Leibish&Co adorns some of the pieces with a hidden yellow diamond accents on the side of the head. In terms of style, the pieces are very traditional, with some designs taking inspiration from the iconic Princess Diana/ Kate Middleton Sapphire engagement ring.
Leibish&Co was one of the very first fancy colour diamond companies to go online as its founder, Leibish Polnauer, recognised early on the internet’s potential as a sales, marketing and service channel to reach customers worldwide.
The company promotes certain fancy colour diamonds as excellent investment opportunities, and employs investment professionals who offer content, education, and advice.
