Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: Who’s That Girl?

Earlier this year, we explored eight distinct personality types that play into type of engagement ring you may choose. With Wedding season right around the corner, we wanted to revisit those past posts to help inspire your own big decision!

Since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one. Take into consideration the girl’s personality and style!

She’s a Minimalist: Sleek, streamlined, and never fussy, but just to be clear—that doesn’t necessarily mean small. She’s a woman who does not…[click here to read more & examples!]

She’s got Classic Style: Serious, mature beyond her years with an eye for a retro-yet-lasting kind of glamour. The slender profile of a marquise with tapered baguettes in platinum looks great with a champagne flute and almost makes you wish foot-long cigarette holders were still acceptable fashion accessories…[click here to read more & examples!]

The Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: Mysterious

Can you gauge a girl’s personality, spirit, and style by glancing at her engagement ring or noticing which rings she gravitates towards? We certainly think so… So many “personality quizzes” are based on individual preferences and choices, and since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one.

This week, Tennie’s is exploring the mysterious type:

She’s Mysterious: In a galaxy of her own, she likes contrasting dark-and-light, yin-and-yang, and can sometimes be hard to read. Add a mounting to a rings-of-Jupiter style ring with black and white diamonds to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring as unique as she is.

The Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: Nature Girl

Can you gauge a girl’s personality, spirit, and style by glancing at her engagement ring or noticing which rings she gravitates towards? We certainly think so… So many “personality quizzes” are based on individual preferences and choices, and since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one.

This week, Tennie’s is exploring the ‘Nature Girl’:

Nature Girl: She loves the outdoors, wears floral prints, and accessorizes with leafy, feathery things… Designs engraved with leaves, tendrils, and flowers just make her happy as can be. Precious gem side stones in her favorite color would be especially significant to her.

The Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: Modern vs. Traditionalist

Can you gauge a girl’s personality, spirit, and style by glancing at her engagement ring or noticing which rings she gravitates towards? We certainly think so… So many “personality quizzes” are based on individual preferences and choices, and since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one.

This week, Tennie’s is exploring opposite personality traits: Modern Sensibility vs The Traditionalist:

She’s got a Modern Sensibility: With the will and the wits to lead—unique, contemporary designs balance her break-the-rules style. Two-toned combos with sculptural lines and high polished finish speak to her sense of individuality and forward-minded outlook. Goes great with the latest mobile device and the coveted corner office.

She’s a Traditionalist: Friends and family are top priorities. She values enduring styles and here-to-stay trends. Halo style engagement rings, with their feminine look and strong circle-round-the-sun message speak to her sense of commitment and grace.

The Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: The Romantic

Can you gauge a girl’s personality, spirit, and style by glancing at her engagement ring or noticing which rings she gravitates towards? We certainly think so… So many “personality quizzes” are based on individual preferences and choices, and since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one.

This week, Tennie’s is exploring ‘The Romantic’:

She’s a Romantic: Whether it’s velvet and lace or more of the contemporary steampunk trend, she’s a Jane Austin fan and can’t get enough of period costume dramas. Channel your inner Mr. Darcy and suggest a vintage style ring with filigree, milgrain, scrolls, a cushion cut center stone, and lots of glittery accents.

Hot Jewelry Trends Expected in 2015

A new year is upon us, and with a new year comes new looks, styles and trends. We’ve compiled a list of some of the hottest jewelry and accessory trends we can expect to see in 2015.

Back to Earth
In the past couple of years we’ve seen a boost in bright, bold and neon colors. While bright and bold is still popular, we will start to see more pieces designed with nature in mind. Pastel corals, and soft sea foam shades will be hot this spring.

Back to Earth 1 tj2 tj3

Bold statement
The jewelry we wear is more of a centerpiece, instead of the finishing touch to an outfit. Big, chunky and unique pieces will be turning heads throughout the year.

tj4 tj5

Elementary
Jewelry and other accessories are becoming more elementary as we get closer to 2015. We are seeing more basic shapes and solid colors. We expect to see this trend continue to grow as we move through the year.

tj6 tj7

Which trend do you prefer? Whether you’re a trend chaser or have more of a classic or traditional taste, we have something for everyone here at Tennie’s. Stop in and browse some of our newer pieces for 2015. 

The Engagement Ring Cheat Sheet: Classic Style

Can you gauge a girl’s personality, spirit, and style by glancing at her engagement ring or noticing which rings she gravitates towards? We certainly think so… So many “personality quizzes” are based on individual preferences and choices, and since an engagement ring is usually a once-in-a-lifetime decision, it can be a quite telling one.

This week, Tennie’s is exploring the ‘Classic Style’ personality:

She’s got Classic Style: Serious, mature beyond her years with an eye for a retro-yet-lasting kind of glamour.
