When it comes to ring styles, today’s young-adult “millennial” shoppers demonstrate a surprising preference for the traditional. Although some retailers say they are seeing some experimentation with colored gemstones and alternative metals like titanium and even stainless steel, the default choice is still a center-mounted diamond, with up to 90 percent of buyers opting for white gold settings. Growing demand from same-sex couples has generated greater interest in nontraditional offerings such as the ornately carved bands by Lithuanian designer Alex Sepkus (p. 80), says Matthew Rosenheim, president of Washington, D.C.’s Tiny Jewel Box. However, a significant portion of same-sex bridal shoppers do gravitate toward classic selections, notes Rosenheim.
What’s different about contemporary rings are the embellishments: Although the stones are smaller, they’re accented more frequently with smaller diamonds on the sides or around the center—a distinction jewelers say is a uniquely Gen-Y spin. According to JIRI stats, a mere 28 percent of rings today are solitaires. The vast majority are what Gassman calls “something extra and different.”
“They want more detail in a smaller space,” says Brian Toone, president and CEO of the Jewelry Design Center in Spokane, Wash. “What we’re seeing has a solitaire or streamlined look, but when you look closer, there are more stones on the sides or detail work underneath to add that personal element.”

'Chasing the dragon with jewelry designer Catherine Angiel' July 12 2010, 0 Comments
Dragons, gothic crosses, skulls and the classic arrowed heart that reads “mom”, if you think this is a description of artwork on the wall of a NYC tattoo parlor you’re mistaken. I just walked into Catherine Angiel, a Greenwich Avenue jewelry store located in the West Village.
I’ve always felt tattoos forward implications of danger and mystery onto their owner. Yet, making a lifelong commitment to a particular design is dreadfully disconcerting. (That, and there’s always my mother’s voice in the back of my head warning how it will look when I’m eighty with sagging skin) I conquered my fear of tattoo commitment at Catherine Angiel. Twirling around in front of the store’s mirror with a white diamond dragon pendant shimmering around my neck, I felt like a rock star and I decided that I’d finally found a “tattoo” with which I could form an allegiance.
Now for most of us, a diamond encrusted pendant is not an impulse buy. However, until one can save for the real McCoy, Catherine Angiel also offers silver versions without diamonds that won’t break the bank. You have to be buzzed into the store, which can be a little intimidating, but once inside the music is thumping and the casual atmosphere makes you feel completely comfortable. The store also offers engagement rings and slightly more conservative jewelry designs if the rock and roll experience of her tattoo inspired collection is not for you.

Q&A With Gothic Jewelry Designer, Catherine Angiel
When it comes to wedding jewelry, one radical designer taps into this exquisite contradiction embodied in her edgy, inspired pieces. Meet Catherine Angiel: drummer, gardener, and artist whose
avant- garde jewelry just might dictate the future of gothic wedding style.
Gothic.Weddings.com: Music and art have greatly influenced the gothic community. How have the two influenced you personally and artistically?
Catherine Angiel: I felt I was born to be a drummer. I was banging on pots and pans at four. By the time I was 15, my band was opening for Blondie and I was playing the club circuit.
To me, everything is a creation, and music, art, and jewelry design are all different outlets. My inspiration is romance -- I'm a hopeless romantic -- and its ups and downs. When you fall in love, it's like this burst. You can't wait to express it.
When I'm designing, I'm designing from the heart. I want my jewelry to appeal to everyone. I like designing for people like you and me, who want something sexy and sophisticated that suits their personal style. I want people to be able to wear my jewelry every day.
Check out Catherine Angiel's online jewelry gallery or visit her rock n' roll nightclub-themed shop, located at 43 Greenwich Ave., NYC.

The Black Diamond Angiel June 12 2010, 0 Comments
Catherine Angiel, who truly put Black Diamonds on the map, was featured in Life & Style this past week because of the inspiration from the 5ct Black Diamond Big gives Carrie at the end of SATC2.
Black Diamonds are being more and more recognized. When is the last time that you saw somebody wearing a black diamond ring? It's truly a unique stone and gives more character to today's already impeccable designs.
However, Ms. Anigel has been using Black Diamonds in her designs for years; I'm happy to see that the rest of the fashion world is finally catching up!
Black diamond gets play in 'Sex and the City 2' - National Jeweler
New York--Spoiler alert! Sex and the City fans will remember that at the end of the 2008 film, Carrie Bradshaw got engaged with a diamond-encrusted shoe rather than a diamond-encrusted ring. While it seemed a fitting engagement for the die-hard fashionista, fans who might have been gunning to see Carrie get a ring will finally get their wish.
Back for another round in Sex and the City 2, which opened at the No. 2 spot at the box office this weekend, Carrie and her trio of best friends, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte, sport jewelry throughout, but the piece that's getting fans talking is a 5-carat diamond ring from designer Itay Malkin.
The hefty carat weight makes for a talking point of its own, but the real buzz factor is the diamond's hue. For fearless fashionista Carrie--who was ready to get married in the first film wearing a bright blue feather on her head--a crystal clear diamond ring just wouldn't do.
In the final scene, Carrie's longtime love, Big, presents her with a black diamond ring, explaining "because you are not like anyone else."

When thinking about high-end jewelry, what comes to mind? Tiffany, Cartier, Choppard and Bvglari are just a few names that many consider to be the classicists of fine jewelry. For decades, New Yorkers have strolled the windows of Fifth Avenue, dreaming of the day they can own a piece of this luxury. What is strange, however, is that most of the recognizable names in this luxurious jewelry industry belong to men. Then along came Catherine Angiel, who did not just take down the walls of fine jewelry design, she busted through them with a sledgehammer.
Angiel isn’t you typical jewelry designer. While she was at the forefront of female jewelry designers, she didn’t attend design school, her pieces don’t retail for outrageous prices and her work experience includes drum solos, as her previous career was a drummer in a Rock 'n' Roll band. As one thing led to another in inspiration began to take control and before she knew it her love of music turned into a profitable design business.
“I’m really inspired by what evokes emotions in me, which is love, romance, music – and that’s how I get my ideas. I can be listening to a song and all of the sudden it will inspire me to create something, hence the "Dangerous" Collection, which is really Rock 'n' Roll inspired.” While music has had the most obvious impact on her opulent creations, the people in Catherine’s life have inspired her as well. “Love is also a fantastic Muse. I’m really inspired by my partner Martha – just her style and the way she puts herself together will give me some ideas.”
Angiel has created five unique collections - Dangerous, Androgyny, Renegade, Delicate and Glam – each evoking Catherine’s fun yet sophisticated spirit. Using distinctive elements and unconventional materials, Angiel creates jewelry bursting with personality, yet remains subtle enough for the red carpet and the mom pushing the baby carriage down the street. “I love working with unusual stones. Whether its black diamonds, or gray diamonds, I’m really inspired by things that are unusual yet can be brought into a classic type of design.” While her pieces might be considered to be dark, they are the perfect combination of a hard attitude and a soft soul.
Angiel’s designs are made for a wide array for clientele, and many times she works with her clients to make sure what they wear is exactly what they want, customizing pieces to any specific need. “I design for a cross between Audrey Hepburn and Angelina Jolie. To me, those are powerful women in their own right, one being more demure, the other being out there and more edgy, but I still get that feminine, delicate, yet sexy twist.”
Angiel, like her clients, is a strong woman with visions of success. Celebrities like Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Olsen, Sandra Bullock, Rhianna, Parker Posie, Mary Louise Parker, Rosario Dawson, The Pussycat Dolls and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been seen rocking pieces from Angiel’s collections.
One of the most important lessons Angiel has learned over the years however, is that often times the vision of success means remaining true to one’s self. “I know I have to do what’s in my heart, and I have to design what I’m feeling. It has to be less about ‘What does the client want?’ because when I design what I think the client is going to want and I don’t feel it, it’s the ring that doesn’t sell.” It is with this attitude that Angiel is seeing plenty of sales and noticeable press.
Of the highlights of her career, Angiel mentions the independent film The Guitar, in which her jewelry was exclusively used as a definitive element in the story telling of the movie. “(The producer) felt that our pieces really matched what the actress was going though in the movie. It worked in unison... and was a great match for the movie. It was truly an honor.”
While it seems that Angiel is well on her way to conquering women’s jewelry, her next move is taking on the men’s side. “There was a void for jewelry for men. It was either something plain or something vile. Men would love jewelry, if it were cool. Jewelry is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be expressive.” And expressive it is–her lighting bolt cuff links and cross necklaces will add a touch of edge to any outfit, with no motorcycle required. With the men’s collection already in motion, Angiel hopes to one day push the envelopes even further. “I love designing homes and gardens. I’m an artist and my pallet choices are precious stones and unusual metals, but to me art is everywhere. Anything that follows creation I would love to push my brand into.” If her boutique on Greenwich Avenue is any indication of her interior design capabilities, she will create some awesome places to call home.
In every ring, necklace and bracelet Angiel produces, her femininity with a punk edge shines through, providing clients with an individual sense of “something different and fresh... without any constraints.” While she might not have the brand name status of other designers in her genre, her pieces hold a name for them selves, and could help you build a name too. Angiel’s something shiny might not come in a little blue box, but it will get you some big attention.
