You've probably heard us rave about Anna Sheffield's array of stunning, unique engagement rings on a number of occasions, but today we're talking about her equally stunning fine jewelry collection.
As I've gotten older, investing in fine jewelry pieces that I'll have forever has become increasingly important to me, as opposed to only hoarding costume jewelry that may tarnish or break after a few wears. Sheffield is the designer that I repeatedly look to when seeking out the freshest fine jewelry trends, as she's constantly combining gemstones and metals in unique ways and reimagining the classics (e.g., pearls), turning them into modern yet timeless pieces that cool girls covet.
So you can probably see why Sheffield is who I turned to for the inside scoop on what fine jewelry trends people are actually spending their hard-earned money on as of late. As with any major purchase, educating yourself is key to choosing something that you'll love and wear for years to come, so read Sheffield's insight and shop corresponding pieces below.
"Important social markers, which show up as trends, are often generated by a sentiment or collective interest, and I find that infinitely interesting, both as a woman and a designer. In the current jewelry market, I see a lot of contrasting interests, which to my mind are empowering and owning of the female aesthetic, as individuals.
"There are some women who love modern, minimal pieces, which we see quite often manifesting in a love for emerald cuts, like in our Bea and Attelage rings as well as pieces with sleek lines, more simple jewelry. Our Attelage harness hoops and cuffs fit this type.
"Simultaneously, we see a strong interest in romantic jewelry styles, like our Celestine pendants and earrings, which are quite decorative and delicate. Also, there has been a growing appreciation for soft color palettes like Morganite in rose gold, or lavender moon quartz in yellow gold, both of which speak to a dreamy, delicate aesthetic. And of course, there are those who like to mix the two (myself included)!"
