Engagement Ring Trends of 2017 - Part II

This is the second part in a six-part series on the top jewelry trends of 2017. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Rose Gold trend that’s taking both the celebrity and jewelry world by storm. 

More engaged couples are looking for ‘unique’ designs to make their symbol of love stand out. Let’s dive a bit deeper and explore this gorgeous mixed-metal wedding jewelry trend. 

A Fascination with Rose Gold 

In 2015, Apple released their super trendy Rose Gold iPhone models. It was an instant hit! People around the world were craving this beautiful and limited edition phone. Soon, interior design trends, fashion, and even jewelry began adopting the look. It was here to stay. 

Today, Rose Gold permeates all things beautiful. The rising popularity of this beautiful two-toned metal is indisputable. Even celebrities have started drenching themselves in it. Amy Adams, Nicole Richie and even ‘Rose’ herself, Kate Winslet have embraced Rose Gold in all its glory. Rocking this trend with either a mix-matching silver or a two-tone ring, celebs have decked themselves out in Rose Gold for the last year. Some celebrity engagement rings have also been coupled with standard gold and rose gold to create a stunning wedding band.

With celebrities sporting Rose Gold everything, and more jewelry designers integrating this metal into their collection, it’s clear Rose Gold will be one of the hottest trends in wedding jewelry for 2017. 

 

Our Rose Gold Collection 

At Moi Moi, we’re all about giving our customer’s what they want, so we’ve naturally included the Rose Gold trend in our engagement and wedding ring selection. Take our "Melissa" Rose Gold Ring, for example. It has three rows of Pave set side diamonds with milgrain detail, and a stunning Round Centre stone of one full carat Moissanite which is perfectly diffused with stunning Rose Gold metal. The centre stone is of course a SUPERNOVA Moissanite stone, making it far more brilliant than traditional diamonds. 

Get this beautiful look on your finger when you shop at Moi Moi. Next we’ll look at trend number three on our list. 

 




Engagement Ring Trends of 2017 - Bigger Really Is Better

Date Added: February 20, 2017

Engagement Ring Trends of 2017 - Part I

Engagement season is official here! January is the official kick off month of engagement season, and with all the options out there for brides and future grooms to choose from, it’s a tough to narrow it down. 

The last hundred years has proven just how frequently jewelry trends ebb and flow. From vintage minimalistic rings to extravagant multi-colored gemstone art pieces, there’s been much for brides and grooms to choose from. As with any other year, 2017 brings with it its own unique assortment of ring styles, so let’s take a closer look to see what’s in store. 

 

 

Trend No. 1—Bigger Really is Better! 

One of the biggest trends hitting the engagement jewelry market is Bigger is Better! Large gemstones are making a serious comeback in 2017, and luckily we at Moi Moi have all the big rings you could want or need. 

Take our stunning Aria Moissanite Ring, for example. She’s an oversized round brilliant single halo cut with a split band and Moissanite stone, weighing in at some 3.64ct. She’s encircled by a dazzling array of gorgeous, smaller brilliant Moissanite stones.  The band shimmers like glitter, offsetting the stunning center stone. The ring’s total carat weight is 4.23. The band is available in 18K white, yellow or rose gold. We fully expect his piece to be one of our more popular rings in 2017.

 

Elegant and Colorful

Bold rocks with daring colors are leading the way in 2017. These elegant yet, original, rings are coming back with vengeance. We expect to see more brides turning to our shop to find a ring that flaunts a stunning center stone complimented with smaller, but equally as beautiful stones. 

Big rings were particularly popular in the 1900s, but like every other style, it’s coming back around. In most cases, oversized rings are only accessible to celebrities or the ultra-wealthy. For example, Mariah Carey, Jessica Biel and the like, were spotted touting their glorious massive center stone rings in 2016, and that’s a trend we expect to continue this year. What will be different, however, is the number of brides looking for affordably priced oversized rings. 

At Moi Moi, we offer several large sized rings. From our Aria Moissanite ring to our Eden cut, brides will find our collection stocked with gorgeous and large engagement rings to choose from. Flaunt your personal style and go big in 2017, with this hard to ignore trend. 

Next post, we’ll take a look at what else is in store for the coming new year. 

 




10 Awesome Marriage Proposals You Couldn’t Say No To

10 Awesome Marriage Proposals You Couldn’t Say No To

In a survey, 53% of all engaged women said they would’ve liked to change something about their proposal. 22% wished for a different location, 20% - a different speech, and 14% would’ve preferred to have different people around. 

This means most wedding proposal ideas could use a little work. 

We think that’s a shame - especially since there are so many sweet, dreamy, irresistible ways to ask for someone’s hand in marriage out there!

Our own customers have shared some amazing stories, including a helicopter proposal and a Vivid light show proposal.

So today, we’ll be sharing some of the best wedding proposals we’ve found out there - including ideas, inspiration and real-life examples. 

Let’s start with #1… 


A Scenic Surprise

 

If you’re going for a surprise wedding proposal, why not do it somewhere beautiful and scenic? 


That’s what Andrew - the young man in this photo - did when him and Magdalena went on a hike. He found the highest rock in the whole park, got down on one knee and proposed. Needless to say, she said yes to the wedding proposal immediately. 

 




2. A Film-Inspired Proposal

 

Michael and his girlfriend loved Pixar’s “Up” so much he decided to recreate one of its scenes in one of the cutest wedding proposals ever. He spent weeks market-hopping to find the right furniture,


 and a small fortune on balloons, but it was worth it! 

 


 

The takeaway is that looking for wedding proposal ideas doesn’t have to be hard; sometimes, knowing which films your partner likes is all the information you need. 




3. A Hot-Air Balloon Proposal

 

Looking to make a unique wedding proposal? Consider doing what Adam did when he proposed to Anna, and popping the question in a hot air balloon!

 


You can make things even more special wi


th a romantic breakfast, on-location musicians and a great photographer or video crew. The latter is especially important - because hot air balloons make for beautiful wedding proposal videos, as you can see here



4. Involve the Kids

 

If you or your partner have children, why not get them involved? You can teach them wedding proposal songs, have them make a wedding proposal speech, or simply have them photograph and help out - like Jordan did in the photo above. 

 

And speaking of musical wedding proposals - here’s another great one…


5. Surprise Her With Musicians & Dancers


In Spring 2012, Roger Taylor hired 100 professional choir performers and 200 dancers to perform a stunning flash-mob rendition of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. 

Passersby loved the cute wedding proposal - and delighted girlfriend Jeanie looks ecstatic in the video


You can use this idea - and you don’t need 300 people for it to be awesome!

 

6. Turn Your Home into the Ultimate Romantic Experience

Wedding proposal ideas at home can be great. Dylan used removable paint to propose to his girlfriend in the image above - but the great thing about being home is that you can use anything: flowers, chocolates, musicians, dancers… 


Since a home proposal is guaranteed to be a surprise, everything you do can - and will - add to the delight of your partner. 





 

7. Get Her Favorite Band to Help

 

Here’s the story behind the photo. 

Will’s girlfriend had a favorite new band, whom she’d bought tickets to see. Will asked the musicians if he could propose during the concert, on-stage… And ended up shocking his girlfriend in front of 7,000 people. 

 


Granted, not every band will be cool enough to say “yes” - but if you can pull something like this off, your fiancee will be the envy of everyone she knows for years to come.

 

 8. Get your Friends Involved

 

In one of our favorite wedding proposals on YouTube, Dave had two friends stretch his proposal behind him and his girlfriend while they were holding a “W” for another project. 

 


 

When she took the camera 2 minutes later,


 she saw the image above… And went crazy with delight! You can wait longer than David did if you want - but a delayed-reaction proposal is a definite winner in our book. 


 

9. For the Pet Loving Couple

 

Who says a funny wedding proposal can’t be sweet and romantic? This dog’s owner created a lovely hand-written board, then got his do

 


g to “deliver” it to his partner. The result is a lighthearted, humorous and tender proposal - and a lovely photograph.

 

10. A Breathtaking View

 

This couple was out, hiking around Lake Trolltunga for 9 hours, when the young man suddenly pulled out a ring, surprising his girlfriend with a proposal set against the backdrop of a breathtaking view. 

 


The one thing we can’t help but wonder is how long the photographer spent waiting for the couple!



At the end of the day, everyone’s “dream proposal” is different. Someone wants a fairytale Disney wedding proposal - and other people want something more true-to-life and down-to-earth. 

An idea that seems crazy to you might be perfect for another person - and vice versa. 

What really matters most of all is the emotion you give (and receive). You don’t need a wedding proposal planner; it’s your own enthusiasm that makes the whole thing special! 

That’s why the surest way to make a wedding proposal that’s completely irresistible is by doing everything lovingly - and using the intimate knowledge of your partner that only you have. 

So long as you manage to do that, whatever you do will be delightful and surprising!

A Look Back at 2016 from Moi Moi

Date Added: January 16, 2017

A Look Back at 2016 from Moi Moi 

2017 is already here, can you believe it?!

2016 was a very interesting year for the entire world. It was also a busy year for Moi Moi. Before we start a new adventure in 2017, lets take a look at some the highlights of 2016. 

A Brand New Store. 

We renovated our store in July, with a very inviting colour and fresh and modern look. We now have a dedicated cabinet of wedding bands for you to browse. We were able to provide you with a much beautiful store to visit to feel good in.

Introduced SUPERNOVA Moissanite in September

We launched and introduced the next generation of colourless SUPERNOVA Moissanite to the market in September 2016 and was met with significant acceptance and demand. SUPERNOVA is a result of years of development by Moissanite International. SUPERNOVA is now out selling Forever One Moissanite by Charles and Colvard. SUPERNOVA offers more value and it has the largest range of cuts and sizes of Moissanite for our consumers. 

This sparkling, dazzling, and wholly unique gemstone was an immediate crowd pleaser since the launch, and we see the trend to continue in 2017.

New Asscher Cut Collection

To respond to the demand of SUPERNOVA fancy cuts, we introduced a whole new collection of Asscher cut, Emerald cut and Oval collection featuring SUPERNOVA Moissanite. We also introduced range of bracelets featuring SUPERNOVA Moissanite.

New Videos for our Collection.

In response to our customers who are living outside of Sydney, we are adding videos on our website showing each ring in our new collection, so they can see the whole design online and on our hand model. We will progressively continue adding videos to our entire range. 

12th Year Anniversary

We celebrated our 12th Anniversary in December with Moi Moi jewellery prizes given away each week for 4 weeks. The demand of Moissanite is growing worldwide and the demand in Australia is the same. We see this trend to continue in 2017 as we have seen this grow year after year.  Moi Moi will continue to raise awareness of this amazing product through social media and our online presence. We have expanded our largest collection of Moissanite Jewellery in the world for you to browse.

 

Looking Forward to 2017

2016 was a wonderful year for the Moi Moi team. With amazing plans for 2017, we are excited about what’s to come.

We will continue to stay focused to give you the best advice for engagement and wedding rings.

We hope your 2016 was incredible, and we wish the best for your 2017 year!
