Fine jewelry trends for brides and grooms

June 27, 2008 10:48:02 AM PDT
It seems that nearly all of Hollywood's celebrities are either getting married or engaged these days. Since celebrities have the ability to effect and drive trends, it should come as no surprise that engagement ring trends are being shaped by what these celebrities are saying "I Do" to.

While celebrities can be trend influencers, the true personality of the brides and grooms-to-be become apparent with the fine jewelry and watches they select for their big day. The three main style and personality trends include fashion forward design, romantic glamour, and modern sophistication.

The following fine jewelry and watches were showcased on ABC7 Chicago. For more information about any of the jewelry or watches listed below, please visit www.jic.org or email info@jic.org.
