We are noticing a widespread comeback and revival of the multi-tone jewelry. Inspired by antique designs, mixing of two or three different colored metals is a hot new trend in modern jewelry styles. The color combination offers the best of both worlds to the jewelry owner by solving a problem of matching jewelry and also lends itself to another popular obsession: layering.
Tri-color wedding bands were used in Russian Orthodox marriage ceremonies since the 19th century, representing the Holy Trinity. The tradition was adopted in nearly 1920 by Louis Cartier, who’s famous Trinity ring incorporated a trio of bands in pink, yellow and white. According to Cartier, the colors were symbolic: pink for love, yellow for fidelity, and white for friendship. It’s amazing how the combination of white and rose or white and yellow gold can highlight or emphasize the design and details of your ring. I think a nice two or three tone ring is a staple every woman should have in her jewelry collection.
We see the combination of two-toned designs are becoming more and more popular in bridal jewelry as well. Two-toned rings and bands are equally popular among males and females. Two-toned men’s bands add a little bit of style to otherwise simple looking wedding bands. Love is composed by a unity of two bodies into a single soul, and I think a two-toned engagement or wedding ring perfectly represents the joining of two people together.
Not all the multi-tone jewelry is created equal. A “real” two or three tone item is consisted of all colored gold castings and they are fused together. It requires more work and also is more expensive in price. Plated two or three tone are the pieces that are solid yellow or solid white and parts of it are plated with a different color.
Multi-colored jewelry is not just trendy, it is always in fashion. Please visit our website to find the styles that will catch your eye.
