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".

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.


Click Here for: Full Interview with The Knot & Catherine Angiel 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.
