Rose Gold Engagement Rings and Gemstone Engagement Rings on the rise…

Are you considering using Rose Gold or a Gemstone in your Engagement Ring?

You’re not the only one…

This year not only is designing your own engagement ring a big hit, but engagement rings crafted in Rose Gold and set with colorful Gemstones are also finding there way back into the engagement ring scene. In years of old, the “traditional” engagement ring was most often yellow gold (with the trend turning towards white gold over the last decade) set with white diamonds.

So, where is this new trend coming from?

Our research shows that 68% of brides and grooms are buying their rings together and 60% of all engagement rings sold are custom designed. Combine the trend of more couples discussing their rings pre-proposal with the ability to share creative ideas through emails easily and conveniently with an online boutique like MiaDonna.com, and you get an easy way to create your dream ring without ever having to step into a jewelry store.

The possibilities for today’s couple to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring or wedding ring set is growing everyday. The internet is flooded with imagery and fantastic design ideas. You can compile a favorites list, contact a custom ring design specialist and start receiving quotes for a custom design or many rings can easily be modified to match your unique style with gorgeous colorful gemstones and/or Rose Gold. The end result whether custom made or simply modified is a very diverse array of taste and style, shown here in some of our latest creations. Each one of these rings was customized by individuals looking for something original, personal, beautiful and affordable and we think they did an amazing job. Gorgeous!

Diamonds are a “GIRLS” best friend….Right?

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but

a woman knows better!

 

 

 

MiaDonna&Co.® offers lab created diamond alternative technology that directly benefits African communities ravaged by conflict diamond mining. Today, you can choose a timeless, beautiful ring that will change a life. The Diamond Industry is evolving, and MiaDonna&Co.® is proudly at the forefront.

 This year at the 2011 JCK Las Vegas, the jewelry industry’s premier buying event, there was a seminar on “Conflict Minerals” that addressed new regulations requiring extra attention be paid to the source of the gold and tungsten that jewelers use. These new regulations ensure that these materials’ acquisitions are not funding conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo or elsewhere. MiaDonna® is excited to see change happening in the jewelry industry. Raising awareness around conflict diamonds, gems, and precious metals is the cornerstone of the MiaDonna® pro-consumer philosophy.

 Using the latest diamond science, MiaDonna® offers consumers diamond alternatives at every budget. According to a Bloomberg.net article by Bryan Linares, “Man-made diamonds will be the fastest-growing segment of the entire jewelry market”. Linares also predicts that cultured, or simulated gems will constitute 20 percent of the $74 billion a-year diamond jewelry market within a decade. MiaDonna® is leading this expansion by not only offering Man Made Synthetic Diamonds and Gemstones, but also offering the latest diamond simulant technology. The MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® is the most beautiful and scientifically advanced simulant ever created. Constructed from a crystal core that has an infusion of enhanced Lab Created Diamond on the outer layer, the MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® poses the most realistic, natural looking brilliance you will ever see from a stimulant. The MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® is offered for 3% the cost of a mined diamond.

 MiaDonna® is an advocate for diamond and gem consumers. “Media messages have influenced our culture to make us believe that love, responsibility and other values are connected to a mineral – this is simply not true,” says MiaDonna® founder and CEO Anna-Mieke Anderson. MiaDonna® is the leader in change, rejecting destructive, brutal ideals and concepts that the diamond industry heavily bases their value on. Everyone at MiaDonna® is not only committed to offering the latest diamond and gem technology, but they are also passionate about the environment, their communities and sustainability. When you choose a MiaDonna Diamond Hybrid® or a MiaDonna® Man Made Diamond, you make a conscious choice to engage in your global community. MiaDonna® funds “The Greener Diamond” a foundation that rebuilds communities devastated by diamond mining.

 Jule Styne famously wrote and Marilyn Monroe famously sang, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”; however Anna-Mieke Anderson said that “as a consumer, wife and mother, I no longer want to be part of the problem – I want to start being part of the solution. As consumers we hold the power.” With her company, MiaDonna&Co® she is leading the diamond industry evolution. Today, MiaDonna® is a girl’s best friend.
