Diamond Jewellery Trends for 2017
2017 is just around the corner, and we’ve got a few predictions up our sleeves for the Jewellery trends of 2017 (the rhymes are great).
Last year we predicted that Rose Gold would be the jewellery of choice for 2016, with celebrities such as Lauren Conrad and Leighton Meester sporting rose gold engagement rings. J-Lo and Gwyneth Paltrow were papped wearing chunky rose gold earrings and a stunning rose gold necklace. The rose gold trend then moved on from being a jewellery trend, and became a popular hair and nail colour for Autumn 2016. As usual, Diamond Heaven were on point with our jewellery prediction of 2016, and we expected this to be the case with 2017, so here goes...
Sapphire is a gemstone from the corundum mineral family. Typically, sapphires are blue but also come in other colours such as yellow, green and purple. This beautiful gemstone is synonymous with the British Royal Monarch, with the association fortified when Prince Charles betrothed Lady Diana Spencer. Princess Diana mesmerised the world, and her stunning sapphire engagement ring became intertwined with historical events and fairytales. This stunning Sapphire engagement ring was then reintroduced when Prince William asked Lady Catherine Middleton for her hand in marriage, and has since been hard to forget.
Sapphire has been a prevalent gem stone throughout history, and was adopted by the National Association of Jewelers in 1912. Blue is the most popular colour of choice when it comes to Sapphire, and it is easy to see why. Sapphire looks stunning on its own as a solitaire gemstone ring, or surrounded by a cluster of brilliant diamonds.
If you love feeling like royalty, and appreciate an simplistic, yet elegant and stylish look then congratulations, this year is your year to shine!
Here are three of our most popular pieces of Sapphire jewellery, that you'll find breathtaking:

This elegant Diamond and Sapphire Tennis Bracelet has flawless round blue Sapphires surrounded by brilliant round cut diamonds. The sparkling diamonds really compliment the deep blue shade of the sapphire, and will make a timeless statement. This unique Sapphire tennis bracelet is different to the usual single row diamond tennis bracelet, with a quirky yet intricate design.
Blue Sapphire and Diamond Halo Ring.
This Blue Sapphire and Diamond Ring features a stunning halo design. The cushion cut sapphire is surrounded by a halo of round diamonds, going onto the shoulders of the band. The clear cut diamonds accentuate the splendid sapphire, creating a statement piece.
