Put a Ring On It! Neil Lane Talks the Biggest Bridal Jewelry Trends, Plus His Collection for Kay JewelersAug 10, 2013 @ 1:00 pm
Neil Lane knows a thing or two about what makes women say “I do” — the designer is the unproclaimed king of bridal jewelry, and is responsible for the many lust-worthy sparklers we’ve seen adorning the lobes, necks, and wrists of the Hollywood elite. The past was Lane’s muse for his latest collection with Kay Jewelers, and the elements from the 1920s, Edwardian 1900s and late Victorian era were right in line with the vintage-inspired jewelry trends of today. ”I used old techniques, like polishing, adding detail, mill graining and engraving—they haven’t been used in bridal on a big level,” he told InStyle.com. ”To make something relevant, you need to go back to the past and make it relevant for the future, so I’m taking ‘vintage’ ideas and bringing them to today.” Lane noted that rose gold, stacking rings together and mixing metals were among the hottest bridal jewelry trends right now—all of which he has included in his designs (example: Desiree Hartsock’s sparkler on The Bachelorette). And although round and princess cuts are still the biggest in demand, emerald, oval, marquis and cushion cuts are swiftly rising through the ranks. “Now you don’t have to just love the guy, you can love your ring, too,” he joked. The Neil Lane x Kay Jewelers collection is available at kay.com and Kay Jewelers stores nationwide, ranging between $300 and $2,599 for non-bridal jewelry and between $2,600 and $7,499 for bridal.

Colorblocking, or lace? With a dress this pretty, there’s no need to choose just one trend! New Girl‘s Hannah Simone stepped out at the Fox Television Critics All-Star Party in Los Angeles wearing a Ted Baker dress, which combined the two runway elements in a romantic red and blush color scheme. Not to overpower the graphic lace detail, the star finished her look with a pair of Ted Baker’s nude pumps, and gold jewelry by Stella & Dot. Simone’s dress is available for $275 at nordstrom.com and Ted Baker stores nationwide, but if you’re feeling bold, try the number in orange, on sale for $192 at tedbaker-london.com.
