Among this year’s strongest themes in winter jewelry are pieces that add a feeling of warmth to the chilly season. In luxury rings, there’s a decisive move towards pink, yellow and rose gold as well as towards stones with pink tones. This trend not only mirrors the muted color palette dominating winter’s haute couture runways this year, but also expresses an increasing desire for jewelry that offers emotional as well as visual appeal. Instead of winter themes that echo the silver tones of a cold winter night, fashionable women are opting for themes that express the warmth and comfort of holiday evenings illuminated by firelight. Here are five examples of rings that capture this year’s warm and wonderful winter themes.
