The Secret Sauce of a Boho Engagement Ring: Show Your True Chic Style
Boho-style engagement rings and wedding bands are trending because couples are breaking the old, established traditions of weddings. The expression of off-beat designs, unique reception locations, and handpicked elements resonates with the free-spirited couple. Many of today’s couples want to show off their freedom-loving nature when they celebrate their ceremony, which gets carried through for a lifetime when they have a touch of Boho on their hand every day.
The Origins of Boho
Boho (Bohemian) Style is inspired by 1960s-1970s flower child design and lifestyle. Youthful people didn’t want the American Dream that the post-war style encouraged. These people were curious about the world and other lifestyles outside the suburbs. Celebrities like Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks wore long lavish imported clothing. Their clothes consisted of tassels and ornate patterns. The fashion was designed to be comfortable, softer, and whimsy. Men and women placed flowers in their overgrown hair and adorned handmade jewelry. People quit their desk jobs and traveled by VW buses with a community of friends to explore the world. Sounds like fun, right?
The Design Elements of Boho
Just like with all great styles, this one has come back with a unique twist. The lush psychedelic fashion has evolved to a simpler and delicate style, with elegant accents and elements.
This trending style includes color schemes with earth tones with pops of color. Natural elements of wood, pampas grass, rattan, leather, and other natural products are common. Handmade and recycled items are major keys to this style. Thrifted glassware and flatware for a dinner service give a quirky and relaxed style. Hand-crafted elements include dried flower arrangements and macrame decoration.
This fashion style is comfortable with natural materials and color choices. It's simple linen-made shirts with rattan furniture and cluster-style jewelry.
So What’s the Perfect Center Stone for your Boho Engagement Ring?
The relaxed, recycled and natural vibe translates well to your center stone. While you may still opt for a natural white diamond, perhaps you switch it up by going for a unique shape, or going lab created instead, for the earth-friendly angle. Is white just too traditional for you? Diamonds vary in multiple colors such as Salt and Pepper, champagne, color-enhanced, and lab-created, so you can get those pinks, blues, and greens you may be dreaming of.
A variety of stones is very Boho chic. Krikawa designers help guide you in the pros and cons of all of your options. Many popular styles use stones that are softer and can be easily broken. You just have to weigh having the stone that you love and accept that it may need to be replaced occasionally. Moss Agate, opals, pearls, turquoise, and jade are examples of stones that could chip or scratch due to everyday use. While we’ll make recommendations for stones that will have the best longevity, the final decision of what stones to put on your dream ring will be up to you!
