Louis Vuitton Bravery High Jewelry Collection LV Monogram star-cut diamonds
It should be the dream of all girls to wear a diamond ring that symbolizes love for themselves by the beloved half. Shining with crystal-clear light, diamonds symbolize pure, loyal and unswerving love, and are endowed with countless beautiful and sacred meanings.
In the late 15th century, Duke Maximilian I of Austria and Duchess Mary made a love oath with a diamond ring. Since then, diamond rings have gradually been regarded as the embodiment of romantic love. Today, with the development and maturity of diamond jewelry design and craftsmanship. Supplemented by a good commercialized business model and the brand’s strict control over the quality of diamonds, the diamond ring, a long-established jewelry category, has taken on a new lease of life.
At the same time, under multiple factors such as the global outbreak of the new crown epidemic and the official closure of the Argyle mine, it is more expensive than ever to buy a diamond ring of excellent quality. But what’s eye-catching is that major jewelry brands are still doing their best to break people’s stereotypes about diamond rings. From a variety of unique cutting techniques, innovative setting techniques, to the bold use of colored diamonds and the combination of unconventional materials such as stained glass and enamel, to breaking traditional meanings and designs, the new diamond rings of major brands this year are particularly special. It is eye-catching, and it also inspires us to imagine more of the future diamond ring category.
