COLOR IN BRIDAL IS BACK WHERE IT BELONGS

Diamond gemstones not just for engagements anymore. Colored gemstones are making a comeback with all their magnificent color and beauty. “At Villarreal Fine Jewelers we love working with colored gemstones.”- designer Malcolm Brown.


There was a time in this great land, not too long ago, when a great behemoth of a company ruled the airwaves with a constant barrage of commercials stating that “A Diamond is Forever”. One would have been considered weird or rebellious to get engaged with anything other than a diamond. Well, things have changed here in the 21st century with a renaissance of color emerging in engagement rings. Women and men are choosing gemstones for their most important and symbolic piece of jewelry that better reflect them as individuals. It is a new age, free of any pressure or traditional bonds to choose fabulous color over the monotony of the colorless.

Prior to the days of mass marketing’s influence on the population, colored gemstones were far more popular as a symbol of one’s love for another. In fact, sapphires were the gemstone of choice in early engagement rings, not only for their beauty, value and symbolism of love, but they were also believed to reveal any infidelity of the wearer. In the 18th and 19th century, colored gemstones were valued higher than diamonds, so it was more special for a bride to receive a rarer, more valuable colored gemstone than a more run-of-the-mill diamond. 
Today’s brides-to-be can choose from an incredible array of gemstones and hues. There are so many reasons that a person may connect with a particular type of gemstone. It could be as simple as a favorite color. It could be the origin of the gemstone. It could be a special cosmic trait that a gemstone possesses and creates a bond with the wearer. Whatever the reason, there is a universe of options available to the newly unshackled engagement ring shopper.

There are some practical considerations that should come into the decision-making process when choosing a colored gemstone engagement ring. One of the most important factors is durability. You will wear your engagement ring for a long time, so it is imperative to select a gemstone that will stand up to the daily grind of life. Really durable gemstones include sapphires, rubies, chrysoberyl (alexandrite), topaz and spinel. Within this list, you will find every color in the rainbow to select from.  Your choices are endless and it is entirely up to the wearer as to which gemstone speaks to him or her.

Colored gemstones are returning as the symbol of love and romance as they have been throughout history.  The few decades-long blip on the radar of mass marketed colorless stones is being replaced by a new era of freedom of choice and personal expression.  We are honored and proud to be able to play a role in so many new special moments involving our beautiful colored gemstones and award-winning jewelry designs, and look forward to many more as color returns to its rightful place in the realm of romance.

“I recently worked with Malcolm to redesign my wedding ring…”

“I recently worked with Malcolm to redesign my wedding ring after inheriting some family diamonds. Malcolm was fantastic to work with. I was a blank slate walking in and his expertise helped guide me to make a gorgeous ring that was right within my budget. I am a repeat customer of Villarreal having purchased our engagement and weddings rings here about 5 years ago. I was happy to find that the amazing customer service has stood the test of time. I would recommend Villarreal jewelers to anyone in the market to purchase or design jewelry.”

“I worked with Malcolm to design an engagement ring inspired by some vintage designs…”

“I worked with Malcolm to design an engagement ring inspired by some vintage designs my girlfriend (now fiance!) liked. Based on that we discussed how the design could be enhanced and made even more beautiful than the vintage designs it was inspired from. The process went very smooth and the end result is a ring my fiance adores. Everything about the process was explained up front what I could expect and what everything may cost and how much time everything may take in realistic terms. I ended up getting the final ring a few weeks before the quoted time. Some advice to would-be clients: go in with an open mind and when in doubt defer to the wonderful experts at Villarreal.”

Large, Rare Diamonds Reveal the Inner Workings of Earth’s Mantle

A Diamond Truly Is Forever – in more ways than one. You will never look at a diamond the same way again.

Large and exceptional gem diamonds like the famous Cullinan or Lesotho Promise tend to have a set of physical characteristics that distinguish them from other kinds of diamonds (fig 1). One of the most noted characteristics is a low nitrogen concentration, such that these diamonds are predominantly type II, although not all type II diamonds necessarily belong to this family. New research published in Science reveals that these Cullinan-like gems, dubbed “CLIPPIR” diamonds, tell us something remarkable about the deep earth.

“Malcolm and Joseph are the best!”

“Malcolm and Joseph are the best. I lost my wedding ring and decided to go to these guys for a new one because my friend got a gorgeous new ring for her 10 yr anniversary. She told me she got it from Villarreal Jewelers. I wanted something out of the ordinary but was feeling overwhelmed. They made it fun and guided me one step at a time. The result was a ring that took my breath away and was unlike anything I could find in the store. I had a vague idea of what I wanted. They listened to me and came up with the ring I could never have described but love so much.”

“My wife and I had new rings made to celebrate our 17th year anniversary!”

My wife and I had new rings made to celebrate our 17th year anniversary. Malcolm was a pleasure to work with and a great designer. He listened to us, brought his knowledge and experience to the table to help us make great choices, and made us comfortable throughout the entire process.

Our finished rings are stunning! We’ve gotten tons of compliments on them and love wearing them every day.

I highly recommend Villarreal and Malcolm to anyone looking to have jewelry custom designed.

“My fiancé and I visited Villarreal Fine Jewelers after a friend of ours suggested them. We were trying to find someone that could design a custom wedding band that went well with my vintage engagement ring. We were both BEYOND pleased with our Custom Designer, Malcolm, every step of the way. Not only was he extremely nice and professional, but what he created for me is more than I could have ever imagined. Villarreal’s combination of AMAZING design and craftsmanship combined with their genuine kindness and honesty makes them, in our opinions, the BEST Fine Jewelers in Austin, TX!!! I will forever recommend them and Malcolm to everyone I know! Thank you, thank you, thank you Malcolm for what you designed for us, it is truly a work of art that we will treasure forever!”

“We had no idea what a fruitful and enjoyable process that would be.”

“What a pleasure it has been working with Malcolm Brown designing a ring for my wife for our 35th wedding anniversary. After some false starts it became obvious that we should include my wife in the process. We had no idea what a fruitful and enjoyable process that would be.”

 

“We started with the idea of a simple traditional diamond ring. That evolved into integrating her previous ring into a composite design. The final ring includes 8 marquise-cut diamonds creatively tucked around a beautiful new oval-cut center diamond. The marquise diamonds are meaningful relative to the age and birth order of our two granddaughters.”

“Thus the final product is far from being “just a ring” but rather a significant and meaningful heirloom that will be greatly treasured and passed down through generations. All of this was possible due to Malcolm’s vast experience, creativity and artistic talents. Everyone, from the design team, family and friends, including our insurance agent declared it the most the beautiful and unique ring they had seen. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice of Villarreal, the design process or the final result.”
