It’s London Fashion Week so all eyes are fixed on the S/S15 catwalks, however back on the High Street A/W is the main event and there’s some style stories that are perfect for you and your wedding.

 

One of the biggest trends for the autumn season is one that will surprise you! Pretty candy colours have long been seen as spring-only shades, however nothing would brighten up a bleak, breezy fall morning like a dash of colour and soft pastels and romantic nude hues are a key trend this autumn/winter. Nude, blush, baby blue, soft grey shades, lilac, mint green are combined with neutral shades or teamed with black for a stylish statement.

Vintage-Engagement-Rings-2

 

The experts at Wedding Rings Direct have been on hand over the last few months with helpful hints and tips with regard to choosing the perfect engagement and wedding rings.

 

This month, the topic up for discussion is what’s got the wow-factor in the wonderful world of engagement and wedding rings this year…

 

Wedding Rings Direct:

So 2014 has begun and with it comes some lovely trends in engagement and wedding rings. So we are here to talk you through what’s hot for brides and grooms in 2014!

 

Rose gold – here to stay!

A key trend for 2013 was rose gold for plain wedding rings and also to create contrast in mixed metal rings. Its stunning pink colour creates a warm tone which also looks beautiful surrounded by diamonds.

 

Yellow gold is back!

White gold has been the popular choice for jewellery since the late nineties, but now yellow gold is making a comeback! The more traditional choice, yellow gold’s comeback has been championed by the Duchess of Cambridge who wears a plain yellow gold wedding ring next to her huge sapphire engagement ring. Whether going for something classic and simple like a gold band or adding diamonds, yellow gold is timeless and back in fashion!

Vintage:

Another trend that is here to stay is vintage! Alongside the desire for brides and grooms to put a vintage twist on their wedding reception, they are extending that look and feel to their engagement and wedding rings. Choosing a vintage style ring that isn’t an antique allows you more choice in style, size and diamonds; getting exactly what you want within your budget.
