Put a Ring On It: What type of bride are you? November 20 2015 - Catherine Angiel, 0 Comments

You've found that special person, the love of your life, the one you want to be with forever. You've likely scoured small jewelry stores, some "big box" jewelers, maybe even skimmed a few pawn shops looking for an engagement ring as unique and special as the person who'll be wearing it. You don't want something plain and traditional, a boring emblem of your love. You want something edgy, current. You want something different.

But you haven't found it. What are you doing wrong?

Likely, you've been hunting for the wrong thing.

Stop looking for a piece of jewelry that says "We're engaged" and find finger candy that cries "No one else like this on earth!"

That's the kind of ring Catherine Angiel designs.

Catherine Angiel is not only a NYC jewelry designer, but also an out-of-the-box thinker who isn't afraid to offer up something that makes a statement.

Too many engagement rings are focused merely on the cut and size of the stone. Bling is best, and bigger is better, right? Well, sure, that's nice, but size and sparkle aren't everything, especially in today's fashion-forward world.

Edgy Black Diamond Engagement Ring

Colored diamonds are emerging as one of the most exciting components in fashionable diamond jewelry, color has turned into a huge statement maker.

Diamonds come in a wide range of colors, from crystal clear to deep black, and Catherine Angiel has created a stunning black diamond engagement ring that's sure to make your beloved's eyes pop.

The edgy hue of the large rose cut diamond is beautifully contrasted with the paleness of the white gold band, making it a fitting companion to any occasion and with any wardrobe. Wearing this ring only amplifies the truth that black and white will never go out of style.

It's all in the band. Gone are the days of a simple, plain band! Today's fashionistas are about "pop", texture, and dimension in everything from home decor to clothing to--you guessed it--jewelry.

Tattoo-Inspired Engagement Ring

Enter the tattoo ring. That's right: a ring with a band inspired by a tribal weave tattoo. The diamond is pristine yet humble, weighing in at a dainty .75 carats, and is the sideshow to the nontraditional artistry of the band. With its ebbs and flows of white gold, this ring's band speaks volumes of the character of the person wearing it. It says, "I'm sophisticated, but unordinary; in vogue, but non-traditional; youthful, but not naive."

Browse the rest of Catherine Angiel's line of engagement and statement rings and find the perfect piece to tell that special person in your life, "I love the one and only, unique YOU".

Los Angeles—In typical MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) style, the fashions at last night's awards show leaned towards the over-the-top (meat dress, anyone?) but in jewelry, a handful of styles, including oversized earrings, blackened metals and stacked bangles, managed to stand out against an abundance of glitzy shift dresses and flamboyant frocks.

After a strong showing at the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, blackened metals and black diamonds continued to dazzle on the VMAs red carpet, where the on-trend designs were worn by the likes of "California Gurls" crooner Katy Perry, Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara and the evening's host, comedian Chelsea Handler.

Handler, who did a number of quick-changes during the show, took to the stage at one point in a black diamond and platinum cuff bracelet plus black and colorless earrings set in platinum, and a black, yellow and colorless diamond cocktail ring, all from designer Neil Lane. Perry, meanwhile, paired a barely there appliqué dress with a "Pave 3D Heart Ring" in blackened sterling silver from M.C.L. by Matthew Campbell Laurenza, while Vergara glittered in over 500 carats of Lorraine Schwartz jewels, including a blackened platinum cuff and platinum earrings, both with colorless and black diamonds, among other designs.

A fresh, edgy take on the usual white-on-white look of colorless diamonds set in white gold or platinum, other VMA attendees to take part in the trend included Twilight actress Ashley Greene and Lo Bosworth of MTV's recently ended reality series The Hills. Greene sported Lorraine Schwartz platinum earrings with black diamonds, plus a platinum bracelet with black diamonds and black sapphires. Bosworth, meanwhile, selected oxidized gold earrings from Bavna accented with colorless diamonds, paired with a Bavna rose-cut diamond circle ring.

Earrings and bracelet pairings, as worn by Greene, and earrings and cocktail ring pairings, as worn by Bosworth, were among the evening's most popular jewelry duets.

Pop star Perry, who sported the blackened sterling M.C.L. ring, also accessorized with rose-cut diamond earrings from Sutra, while in another of her on-stage looks, Handler wore Neil Lane diamond earrings plus a stack of diamond, gold and coral bracelets and bangles. Vergara piled on the jewelry, too, wearing not only the blackened platinum cuff bracelet and the earrings mentioned above, but also another platinum cuff, two platinum and diamond bracelets and a platinum and diamond dome ring to top it all off.

Bringing a flash of color, meanwhile, was Selena Gomez, who wore "Blue Mordore" crystal earrings and a cocktail ring from Baccarat's "Insomnight" collection.

Gomez's earrings for the evening leaned towards the demure in terms of their short drop style, as did the diamond Le Vian earrings worn Taylor Swift. The Hills star Stephanie Pratt also selected a more understated earring style, specifically diamond stud earrings from Le Vian, plus bangles and stackable rings from the brand. Many of the earrings spotted on the red carpet, however, were notable for their oversized style, such as the Amrapali rose-cut diamond drop earrings worn by actress Rosario Dawson. Other oversized earring styles to get major play were shoulder-grazing chandelier looks and hoop earrings, the latter worn by the likes of the Jersey Shore ladies, Easy A actress Emma Stone and Access Hollywood correspondent Maria Menounos.

Aside from all of the earrings, bracelets and rings in the spotlight, necklaces received a fair share of time on stage. During her performance with Eminem, R&B star Rihanna sported a long diamond chain and cross necklace from Neil Lane. Towards the end of the evening, a necklace worn by Lady Gaga, who swept the VMAs by winning eight awards, might have gotten much attention, too, but that's if viewers were able to get past Gaga's dress, chapeau and purse. As she scooped up her "Video of the Year" award in her third outfit of the evening, the pop star shocked in a get-up made of raw meat, which she accessorized with a blinged-out necklace, bracelets and a cocktail ring.
