Here are 5 retro jewelry trends that are predicted to make a big come back: including the continued rise of rose gold and the return of the bypass ring. So many great designs! Let's take a closer look...

Retro Jewelry Trend: Bypass Rings

Though they never really left, bypass rings are making a comeback! These free spirited designs are a fresh take on symmetry giving breath and movement to traditional designs. From gemstone to diamond designs, and single to double stone settings, there is a wide variety of bypass rings to fall in love with; here are some of our favorites:

Retro Jewelry Trend: Rose Gold

Rose gold is back and it’s not going anywhere! Over the past few years we have seen a growing interest in rose gold, so much that it has been added to both the David Connolly and Jabel collections as a standard metal option. This retro precious metal is not only romantic and beautiful, but it pairs perfectly with white or yellow gold, giving you a chic mixed metal look with a feminine touch!

Retro Jewelry Trend: Flat Band Rings

The crisp clean lines of a flat band ring are in striking contrast with some the rounded bands common to the ornate designs that have been popular throughout the past few years. However, these rings look equally as beautiful with vintage detailing; giving them a romantic feeling with a fresh look.

Retro Jewelry Trend: Symbolic Jewelry

Symbolic jewelry is continuing to gain popularity as it is not only beautiful, but tells the story of a lifetime, a passion, a moment, and a journey. Symbolic jewelry makes excellent gifts as well as self-purchases during life affirming moments. Here are a few of our favorite David Connolly designs:
