订婚钻戒一般一辈子只买一次,所以很少有人会注意到钻戒的样式也在不断演变。100年前的钻戒和现在的钻戒差别有多大?过去一个世纪流行过的钻戒款式又有多少?哪一款钻戒最经得起时间考验呢?

According to WP Diamonds, engagement rings with geometric shapes and sharp lines were popular in the 1920s, coinciding with the height of the Art Deco period. Emerald-cut and Asscher diamonds were especially common, and more extravagant rings were accentuated with diamond halos.

最经久不衰:单钻金戒指

In the past century, the most popular ring style has been a gold band with a solitaire stone. Speaking to INSIDER, the president of WP Diamonds, Andrew Brown, said the most popular engagement ring style in the last 100 years is actually pretty simple: A "round solitaire diamond, around one carat, set on a simple yellow-gold band."

过去一个世纪以来,最经久不衰的戒指是黄金指环镶单颗钻石。WP Diamonds公司总裁安德鲁·布朗告诉Insider网站说,过去100年最流行的订婚戒指其实挺简单的:一颗1克拉左右的圆形钻石镶嵌在简单的黄金指环上。

According to Brown, there will always be innovation in the diamond industry but trends often "revert to the classics."

布朗说,钻石行业一直在创新,但潮流时常“回归经典”。

未来将流行什么样的戒指?

So, what will come next? Brown thinks that round diamonds will "remain the most popular shape" while oval and cushion cuts will "continue in their rise." The WP Diamonds president also expects other trends to go out of style, like the princess cut popularized in the early 2000s.

那么,接下来将流行什么戒指呢?布朗认为,圆形钻石将“依然是最流行的钻石形状”,而椭圆形钻石和长角阶梯切割钻石也会“继续流行下去”。WP Diamonds公司总裁预测其他一些款式会过时,比如21世纪初流行过的公主方形切割钻石戒指。

Unfortunately for those who love colorful stones, Brown said that we can also expect to see a "decline in production of colored diamonds due to supply constraints."

令彩钻爱好者失望的是,布朗指出,“由于供应紧缺,彩钻的产量将下降”。
