Is Your Diamond Jewelry ‘Ethical?’

This week on Under The Radar:

Pop the champagne! October is the most popular month to get married, according to The Knot, the nation’s leading wedding marketplace. And the wedding industry sure is on the rebound after more than a year of postponed pandemic weddings. That includes increased consumer demand for diamond engagement rings.

Diamond sales shot up 30 percent from last year. Consumer demand coupled with COVID-19 restrictions led to global diamond shortages, and something else: a more vocal movement calling for a move away from mined diamonds toward so-called ethical or conflict-free diamonds.

Angelina Jolie’s Minimalist Jewelry Staples Are Timeless

Lately, the jewelry trends have been heading in a more maximalist direction. Fashion girls are opting for whimsical beaded necklaces reminiscent of ones in their childhood jewelry boxes. Earrings and rings, too, seem to have become more expressive, with some chunky baubles even resembling the confections you’d find in a candy store.

Jewelry artist Siedra Loeffler was born during a meteor shower, so her parents named her after the Urdu and Latin “Sidra,” meaning “Like a star.” 

It makes sense that she should have become fascinated by the sparkle of jewels and drawn to jewelry making.

The Fall 2021 Jewelry Trend Report

Spring 2022 is a body-con season for clothes and some types of jewelry. Body chains adorned bare midriffs and were threaded through cutouts and under corsets, while arm bands drew attention to the biceps. At the same time, both hoop earrings and chokers grew to enormous proportions, and chainlink for women, as well as men, blew up too. Necklaces were sometimes layered but most pile-ups involved rings and stacks of bangles, often in rainbow-bright colors.

Fringes continue to be popular (some
