ENGAGEMENTS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF GEMSTONES
Non-traditional engagement styles for trendy Millennials
Diamonds are rare, beautiful and, yes, forever. That’s not going to change anytime soon. But gemstone engagements are making a splash among Millennial buyers. Remember that recently the DPA ran its “Real is Rare” campaign? It aimed at rekindling the diamond romance with younger customers. Since the Millennial group is the largest generation in our nation’s history, it’s advantageous to understand what drives this sweeping customer base. So the question remains: Are Millennials attracted to gemstone engagements because of their uniqueness or affordability? Well, the short answer is both!
Gemstone engagements stray from conventional norms and offer individual expression for younger audiences. Their bursts of colour grant wearers freedom from the traditional look and communicate uniqueness. Also, many gemstones have a lower price point, attracting frugal Millennials who opt to allocate their money elsewhere. However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, with gemstone popularity on the rise, certain stones can rival diamonds in price per carat.
After reviewing the numbers, we’ve isolated our bestselling stones for gemstone engagements.
