If you’re the kinda person that loves a bit of sparkle, then my goodness, did you click on the right blog today! We’ve curated our top 15 instagram accounts from engagement ring designers from across to globe to get you your sparkle fix!
Because, hello? Who doesn’t love their instagram feed to be littered with gorgeously set diamonds?! I know I do!
Whether you’re a bride looking for the perfect wedding band, a partner looking for that perfect ring to propose (eek!) or just a jewellery crazed diamond fiend who just can’t get enough (*ahem that’d be me ahem!*) we got you!
So, with instagram open and your finger poised ready to hit ‘follow’, you guys better sit tight, buckle up and prepare to be left starry-eyed!
With ‘lasting value and ethical origins’ at the heart of their jewellery, Bario Neal is also a design-forward, women-owned, feminist company. Each piece is designed in-house and handcrafted with reclaimed precious metals, Fairmined gold, and ethically sourced stones.
And let me tell you: good ethics seem to make for GREAT jewellery. I’ll let the photos do the talking though…
We adore their cluster style rings so much. The more sparkle the better, right?! We also love that Bario Neal choose to work with alternative precious stones too: coloured Sapphires, Andalusit, Opals (you’re gonna be seeing a lot more of them!), Myrtle and Jade. There’s something for every kind of bride!
Guaranteed, if there’s a picture on our instagram feed that makes us stop in our tracks, mesmerised by the sheer volume of bling and pretty setting, it’ll be a shot from Trabert Goldsmiths.
‘Fine jewelers selling & creating future heirlooms’, Trabert rings are often timeless in style, but with an up-to-date twist that makes them totally unique and totally lust-worthy!
From a round Old European cut solitaire paired with both a dainty eternity band and a vintage inspired hexagonal band, to their unmistakeable Freeform baguette diamond ring (one of my absolute favourites!), trust me when I say this’ll be an immediate ‘follow’.
Katie Diamond is an absolute gem of a designer.
(Sorry, couldn’t resist it!)
But seriously though, the perfect blend of bohemian and luxe, her collection is edgy while still so dainty. If your looking for something ridiculously pretty and feminine, with that little hint of edge, Katie Diamond’s designs are for you.
Those signature ‘Lace’ wedding bands are just incredible though. The Delphine is my personal favourite!
This one’s for the über cool ‘it girl’. As she so eloquently describes her brand, Jennie Kwon represents ‘quiet luxury and tomorrow’s classics’. We couldn’t agree any more.
Asymmetric designs, mixed stone clusters, cuff style bands, her stunning stackable Equilibrium rings… We could go on all day about Kwon’s designs, but seeing is believing guys!
That morganite and opal leaf ring is just BEAUTIFUL! Kudos, Kwon, kudos!
KatKim has been a long-term love of ours. Thoughtfully designed, her pieces are timeless yet modern and the definition of ‘fine jewelery’: the finest gold and diamonds, all responsibly sourced and created with a focus on technical perfection.
They’re modern, elegant and memorable.
Guys, good things come out of Australia, and Natalie Marie‘s jewellery is no-exception to that rule!
Handmade in Sydney, Natalie’s label has at its heart ‘an ethos based on connection, sentiment and originality’. And I don’t know about you, but we are totally feeling that vibe from her collection.
Join the #JAtribe and make a statement.
We’ve talked about Jacquie Aiche here on the blog before, but she continues to be such an inspiration, her instagram account had to hit our top 15! We think everything you need to know about this designer can be found in her own words:
“A woman’s natural beauty can be illuminated with the right piece of jewelry, and that is my mission. To create jewelry that will make every woman look and feel uniquely beautiful.” – Jacquie Aiche
The ‘sartorial embodiment of ethereal ease… with just a hint of rebellion’, JA’s pieces are striking, unique and all kinds of mesmerising!
La Kaiser is a new addition to us, but my goodness have we fallen for her quick!
Simple designs with a touch of contemporary and a splash of colour, Cindy is a Swiss native, born and raised in Zimbabwe and now residing in Chicago, and her adventure-filled, wandering life shines through her beautiful designs. La Kaiser donate a percentage of their profits to charity too, so you can give back as you move forward into an exciting new phase of life!
And here you’ll notice the opal trend we’ve been hinting at throughout this post thus far come to it’s peak in La Kaiser’s dreamy collection…
This brand is such an infusion of new and old. The name itself, Audry Rose, in fact pays homage to designer Jaclyn’s grandmother: ‘a beautiful woman with impeccable style who was generations before her time. Our company is infused with her spirit’.
This focus of being unique while timeless is at the heart of this beautiful brand, their pieces are built to last and to be handed down generations, for each piece’s story to evolve.
Many jewels are one-of-a-kind, leaving us swooning for days.
That Healing Stone Ring is just incredible.
Elizabeth Street is an inspired line of jewellery that we can’t help but find bewitching.
With a specific interest in Indian rose cut diamonds, stemming from her love of her grandmother’s collection of ancient and estate jewelry and stones, Street’s line embraces the Indian rose cut’s ‘inherent quality that is both imperfect and uniquely beautiful’.
It’s this focus that, for us, gives Street’s creations a grounded and earthy while incredibly beautiful feel.
We even snook one in for the guys too there: how incredible is that Chevron engraved band?
Another recent discovery for us in the world of Instagram, but it’s safe to say we wouldn’t be without their account now we’ve found them!
Meet Wwake, a painfully cool jewellery brand who are ‘redesigning tradition with an element of surprise’.
My goodness, are they ever?!
I can still remember the first time I landed on Communion by Joy‘s account. I’d never seen designs like hers, so delicate, so intricate, with an undeniable handmade feel there was something divine about them.
The obsession has continued ever since!
Joy is one seriously inspired and fascinating lady, she describes her creative process:
“I love to make jewelry that carries an energy of inner-strength and contains the power from the design or the stones I set into them. I keep my creative fire going by connecting to people and their stories.
Her pieces are spiritual, freeing, bohemian; they’re talismans. In fact, Lulu Brud of Of The Wolves describes them perfectly:
Cushla Whiting has captured us heart and soul.
What happens when a leading gemologist raises three kids? Well, in Cushla and her siblings case, they absorb all that passion for gems and channelled it into their own distinctive line.
What captured our attention the most (aside from the each incredible stone, of course!) their stunning use of blackened gold.
Luna Skye is a brand built with love, and that same love radiates through their beautiful line so brightly.
Samantha Conn describes her ocean and moon inspired collection:
“I always loved the way a new piece of jewelry could really make a women feel special and beautiful – the confidence and certain allure that came from these special pieces. I wanted to take that feeling and harness it into my designs […] To feel like they are “taken care of.” I truly feel we as women, are one of a kind, and something as personal as jewelry should reflect that. That’s why I designed my line to be delicate, yet strong… Pieces that become like your second skin. Pieces that women can wear day-to-day, illuminating their own natural inner beauty and spirit.”
Safe to say we believe you’ve achieved that Samantha! What an incredible collection and utterly beautiful instagram account!
Samantha is a girl after my own heart, fascinated with all things ancient Egypt as a child, her incredible Pyramid Eye Ring speaks to me on all kinds of levels… What a statement engagement ring that’d make!
Last, but by no means least, is another long-time love of ours here at FBrides, Digby and Iona.
These designs just scream ‘history’ to us. They’re nostalgic, inspired by the designer’s childhood fascination with discovering ancient artefacts and exploration to seek out hidden relics.
Originally setting out to become a furniture deisgner, Digby and Iona’s founder, Aaron Ruff found a more intimate connection with constructing objects that people could wear and cherish, a connection that’s distinct in each one of his well-crafted pieces.
So! Get your ‘follow’ on for these feeds, they’re sure to add a dose of sheer luxury and sparkling creative to you instagram feed everyday and make sure you give our feed a follow, we’ll be continuing to share our shining favourites for these designers and more!
And to all the partners out there who’ve just received a hundred ring screenshots and will have to endure a seemingly endless conversation of the merits of a cluster diamond ring versus a single solitaire… #sorrynotsorry!
Peace + Love
