Our Monday morning trend report….
It’s all about being fancy.
The fancy cut stone trend has evolved into such a fun and creative category, thanks to designers like Grima, Mccaul, Lily Kamper, Polly Wales and Tomasz Donocik, just to name a few.
They have brought these unique and fashion forward designs to the front of the line, using fancy cut stones in different shapes and colors, to form these modern and distinctive jewelry pieces, very current and so innovative.

Fun fact: The word diamond comes from the Greek word “adamas” meaning unconquerable or invincible. Interestingly, its Aryan root “dam”, to tame or subdue, is also the basis of the word ”madam”. The adjective “adamas” was employed to describe the hardest substance known and became synonymous with the gem, in reference to the hardness of this stone made of carbon, a chemical element fundamental to all life, here in its most concentrated form.
