Adding to Heirlooms
What makes fashion Classic, Modern or Timeless?
Grandma’s jewelry box is often associated with vintage classic pieces, or those that appeal more to sentiments rather than fashion. Each time we buy a new ring or try on a new necklace, it is natural to wonder what it would look like around the neck of your daughter, at your granddaughter’s graduation or at your great-granddaughter’s wedding. Like humans, memories and the jewelry we wore during those memories gain more value as time goes on, and we wonder what jewelry we should pick to best complement a future where fashion and style might be drastically different.
If you wish to add classic jewelry to your collection, look out for clean lines, simple shapes, and ageless appeal. These pieces often feature traditional designs and motifs that have remained popular throughout the decades, such as solitaire diamond rings, pearl necklaces, and diamond stud earrings. Classic jewelry is often associated with elegance, sophistication, and understated beauty, and is a popular choice for formal occasions and special events. Smiling Rocks’ Smiling Brides is a carefully curated collection of rings which are a hallmark of classical heirloom jewelry, passed down from generation to generation as cherished family treasures.
Maybe you will want to be remembered for your recognizable unique style. You might, in this case, choose more modern jewelry. Characterized by its bold designs, unconventional shapes, and innovative use of materials, these pieces often feature asymmetrical shapes, unexpected combinations of materials, and experimental designs that push the boundaries of traditional jewelry-making. Modern jewelry is often associated with a sense of playfulness, creativity, and individuality, and is a popular choice for those who want to make a statement with their jewelry. Smiling Rocks’ Gemtastic might be a collection for you, with the avant-garde mix of white and coloured lab-grown diamonds set on white gold bands in a variety of shapes.
In a world where there is such demand of time, timeless jewelry remains special by its enduring beauty and lasting appeal. These pieces often feature classic designs and motifs, but are updated with modern twists and contemporary elements that keep them fresh and relevant. Timeless jewelry is often associated with quality, craftsmanship, and longevity, and is a popular choice for those who want to invest in pieces that will outlive them and be passed down through generations. Smiling Rocks’ Flora Collection allows for an iconic floral symbol in the pieces while maintaining a timeless femininity and daintiness.
Regardless of which style you choose, it's important to invest in high-quality pieces that are made with fine materials and expert craftsmanship. By choosing pieces that are well-made and of high quality, you can be sure that your jewelry will stand the test of time and continue to be cherished for years to come.
Because diamonds are for everyone.
