Yellow Diamond Engagement Ring

1 carat total weight yellow diamond 3-stone engagement ring in 14 karat white and yellow gold.

Unless you’re an industry insider, you’ve probably never heard of JCK Las Vegas. It’s the leading jewelry trade show in North America, a four-day event held annually in Las Vegas, NV that showcases industry trends and jewelry designers from around the world. Fred Meyer Jewelers sent a team to the Las Vegas Valley to bask in the bling. Jewelry buyer Kacie Capellas shared her notes.

According to Capellas, unique engagement rings had a huge presence at JCK Las Vegas 2015. More brides-to-be are opting for something other than the colorless-solitaire-in-platinum, and the industry has responded by adding more unique styles to their assortments.

When it comes to diamonds, there’s a crayon box of colors to choose from. From bowtie black to electric blue, brides-to-be are adding color to their bridal baubles, and the result is nothing short of stunning. Don’t get us wrong; we have as much love for a VVS1 colorless as we do for a candy apple red one. (We’ll take ‘em both.) The bottom line is: We like options. Who doesn’t like options?!

Engagement rings aren’t the only thing brides-to-be are seeing in color; anniversary bands and wedding rings lend color to this season’s look books and bridal guides. We like. What do you think? Would you do timeless with a twist?
