Spring Ring Trends: Jean Dousset Diamonds

I have been discussing some major spring trends for 2012 & there are so many trends that I can’t wait to show you.  The wedding starts with the proposal from your partner. Without that engagement ring, there would be no wedding.  There are some major engagement ring trends that are leaving a major footprint in the wedding industry, particularly by Jean Dousset Diamonds collection.  So many brides are in love with the brilliance of these diamonds, the elegance, and the attention to detail that goes into designing these rings.
 
My favorite trend is vintage glamour, which is inspired by the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. Some other trends are raised center stone diamonds and diamonds surrounding the center stone and band.  Check out some of their amazing pieces below. 
 
The Riviera, which is my personal favorite, is simply stunning.  The Riviera is handcrafted and set with approximately 80 brilliant cut diamonds.  The Riviera features a diamond center stone and is available in Platinum or 19K White Gold.
 
 
The Eva, highlighted by it’s stunning diamond center stone. I have seen a this ring on many brides to be lately.  This beautiful ring features diamonds surrounding the center stone and band, adding to the brilliance of the classically designed engagement ring.
                              
 
The Nina, tapping into the glamour of the ‘30’s, ‘40’s & ‘50’s. The Nina is a timeless engagement ring with a touch of vintage glamour.
                                           
 
The Sasha, with its intricately raised diamond center stone setting, adds to the drama of this elegant piece. In addition, the Sasha features approximately 100 brilliant cut diamonds.  
                         
So make sure your husband to be takes a look at Jean Dousset Diamonds collection.

Grand Central & Central Park are two of my favorite places for photographer’s to get shots of the bride and groom.  Before getting married and meeting with your photographer, be sure to scout locations that can be to your benefit! Your photographer may even know some great locations. These are great photo opportunities that will allow you to look back at your photos & smile.
