Fresh Styles and New Favorites Come to Modern Brilliance®

Our team spends months researching and understanding fashion trends. We always want to know what’s popular and what’s coming next so that we can provide jewelers with the styles they need. With the holiday selling season quickly approaching, our goal was to bring styles that are essential as consumers are searching for the perfect gift or self-purchase. We are excited to release these additions to our Modern Brilliance Collection — Stuller’s line of lab-grown diamond bridal and fine jewelry.

Before we dive into those updates, let’s explore what makes offering lab-grown diamond jewelry a necessity.

Offer Attainable Luxury

lab-grown diamond fine jewelry

You already know the appeal a diamond can have on a consumer. These gorgeous stones are highly sought for their value, beauty, and durability. But consumers across the generations are wanting to wear diamond jewelry with higher carat total weights while at an accessible price point.

Lab-grown diamonds answer that desire. Having the same chemical, physical, and optical properties of natural diamonds while being set at a price point 30%-40% lower than their natural counterparts, lab-grown diamond jewelry provides more consumers with the luxury of diamonds. Lab-grown diamond jewelry is perfect for the holidays. You can offer everyday essentials as the perfect holiday gift for a loved one or provide even more options for the young couple looking to start their lives together ahead of a holiday proposal.

Now that we’ve covered why you should consider expanding your lab-grown diamond jewelry offerings, let’s talk about our new styles.

New in Fine Jewelry

The theme for this season’s product expansion is core and essential styles. Many of our most popular natural diamond styles are now being offered with lab-grown diamonds as well as in expanded carat total weights. You will also see new stone shape options for our popular stud earrings, such as marquise and emerald. Finally, in response to the thriving pearl trend within the fashion industry, we also have brought in new styles that incorporate cultured pearls with lab-grown diamonds.

Our shining star this season that we are excited to offer is a lab-grown alternative to our popular diamond line necklace (688853). With a carat total weight of 6.75, this 16 inch necklace shows a timeless classic style that is perfect for all occasions.

Designs and Trends Featured in 302® Fine Jewelry

When trying to appeal to a large audience of customers, you need to provide an assortment that features variety. 302 Fine Jewelry is designed for every woman. Regardless of style preference, background, and age, we strive to create jewelry that helps women feel fashionable no matter where she’s going, what story she’s telling, and what activity she’s doing.

Inspired Designs

The 302 Fine Jewelry team is made up of women representing a variety of backgrounds within the Stuller building. We craft and believe in a vision for this series of collections that celebrates the uniqueness and confidence within all women.

Keeping these values in mind, we approach the designs of every piece from the perspective of the women that wear them. The women that wear 302 Fine Jewelry are moms, professionals, athletes, and so much more. They deserve jewelry that fits their lifestyle.

When thinking of the function within the designs, it’s these various lifestyles that guide us. For example, when we introduced the Charm School™ Collection, we discussed how we approached designing the bail. The bail is in the shape of a “D” so that when the charm rests against the skin, it doesn’t roll around. This bail also makes the charm compatible with chains of assorted sizes and can work on necklaces and bracelets. The goal was to give the piece as much versatility as possible while also solving a potential issue for the woman on the move.

In-Demand Trends

Not only are we thinking about the designs of individual pieces, but we are always on top of the trends that your customers are wanting. We curate these collections with pieces that will have them coming back for more. Here are some of our favorite trends that we have been following and have made sure are well-represented within the collections of 302 Fine Jewelry.

Ear Party

Layering and stacking is absolutely in style, which is why we offer such a wide selection of earrings for women to create their own ear party! Curate your own selection of studs, huggies, and hoops today.

Chain

Chain has had a huge presence on the runway over the last few years and is not just for the neck anymore! From cast chain rings and draping bead chain earrings to fashion-forward chain necklaces, make sure you hop on this utility and industrial-inspired trend.

Lab-Grown Diamonds: Knowing What You’re Getting

All signs indicate that the lab-grown diamond’s market share will continue to grow. This assortment lets you offer customers more options — with lab-grown, customers can choose a better color or larger diamond for the same price as a natural diamond. Lab-grown diamonds often give you a better margin, a novelty in diamonds. 

CanadaMark Melee Diamonds

Unparallel Lines

Unfortunately, the influx of lab-grown diamonds to the market raises a dilemma. Thousands of undisclosed lab-grown diamonds (ULGDs) — particularly melee — find their way into the vast streams coming out of diamond hubs today. So how can you know for sure if the diamonds and diamond jewelry you order is natural or perhaps a ULGD?

Choose Certainty

Stuller has a Zero Tolerance Policy for ULGDs, so when you purchase from Stuller, you have absolute certainty and can share that trust and confidence with your customers. We screen every colorless and near-colorless loose diamond and piece of diamond jewelry that enters our manufacturing facility — no exceptions. Our approach to screening ULGDs uses the most sophisticated and effective technology in the industry, so you can rest assured that when you order a natural diamond, that’s what you’ll receive.

Natural Round Melee Diamonds

We have a strategic service arrangement with GIA® (Gemological Institute of America), a separate entity from Stuller. The independent Melee Analysis by GIA lab in Stuller’s Lafayette facility has GIA specialists who use proprietary technology to screen round melee diamonds in sizes of 0.005ct through 0.24ct – our best sellers! After screening, their technology sorts the stones based on color grade, the industry benchmark. When ordering GIA-screened melee, a customer will receive their diamonds in a gray parcel sealed with a GIA sticker along with an assurance card, for easy identification.

GIA Melee Lab-Grown Diamonds

Eye-Catching Blue

We store and ship LGDs in distinct blue packaging. Lab-Grown Diamonds will arrive at your door in a blue parcel. Lab-grown diamonds weighing 0.33ct and larger come with an assurance card notating the inscription on the girdle and that they have been screened by the Stuller Gemological Lab. If we are setting jewelry with LGDs, the diamonds travel from workstation to workstation in a blue work sleeve alerting all associates who work on the jewelry piece that there are lab-grown diamonds inside. 

Do We Stop There?

Not even close. As added security, we further require our suppliers to screen all diamonds for lab-grown diamonds. Random samples of diamonds from all our suppliers are also periodically sent out to leading laboratories to check for lab-grown diamonds. These protocols let Stuller extend confidence and security to you, ensuring you get precisely what you purchase.

Stuller’s strategic partnership with GIA helps us ensure that you’re getting exactly what you order every single time. Our industry-leading processes help to ensure that we keep track of each stone we handle and that we are as fully transparent from the time of purchase through to delivery.




Meet Jordan Mantzke: Modern Goldsmith

Stuller recently launched a partnership with Jordan Mantzke, also known as Modern Goldsmith, to promote tools and other things a new jeweler would need to get started. Jordan is a popular creator on YouTube, boasting over 100k followers! We are so excited to let Jordan tell you a little bit more about himself.

Jordan Mantzke

Jordan, we are SO thrilled to have you partner with Stuller to give some educational content to new jewelers! So tell me, how did you get into the jewelry industry?

In 2001, I got my very first job as a polisher. I was in high school and could go to work for my uncle after school. Having a family member in the jewelry industry certainly helped shape my career path. I eventually moved up from polisher to apprentice. I also moved around and worked at multiple jewelry stores. It was very beneficial to learn different techniques from other jewelers. Finally, in 2012, I started my own business and named it Mantzke Metallurgy, and changed the name to Modern Goldsmith in 2016.

Looks like you really know your way around the trade! What would you say is your favorite facet (no pun intended) of the jewelry industry?

My favorite part about being a goldsmith is that there is no ceiling. There’s always room to learn, grow, and improve. There are so many facets to working with your hands or learning how to use certain tools. Your skills and experience compound over the years and you can eventually share your unique journey and set of skills with others. Starting a YouTube channel has been a rewarding way to connect with people from all over the world. I love being a maker in a digital age.

Well, whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it well. Your custom pieces never cease to amaze me! So tell me, why Stuller?

Funnily enough, I’ve known about Stuller since way back when I first started as a polisher. I guess you can say at this point I’ve known about Stuller for more than half of my life! Once I started my own business, I was able to see just how beneficial Stuller was to help me run things. The first few years of my business were heavily focused on repairs, so I went to them for everything I used a lot of. Getting sizing stock in all different metal types and sizes was a tremendous time-saver. Now that my main focus is on custom jewelry, I really value the fact that Stuller sells verified recycled metals and alloys. I also appreciate the fact that they have embraced lab-grown diamonds and moissanite as those are a big part of my business as well.

As a representative of Stuller, I am so glad to hear that we have been there for you throughout your whole journey. Thank you for your constant Stuller support! Lastly, how about you tell us a little bit about your life outside of your job?

Outside of work I am a husband and father. My wife Brooke and I got married in 2011. She often jokes that when she first found out what I did for a living, she was a bit confused because I didn’t wear any jewelry. We have three (yes, three) boys, currently ages 7, 5, and 2. So you can imagine outside of work things are rather exciting at home. My oldest wants to be a weatherman, but our five-year-old says he’s going to be a “modern goldsmith” when he grows up.

My other passions include making music. I play guitar and have a synth and a drum machine in the shop that I use periodically to de-stress. Over the years when I wasn’t learning the trade, I was either attempting to go to college (and failing). I also took a two-year hiatus to go to the Philippines for a church mission, where I learned the Tagalog language. The Filipino people are some of the nicest on earth, so I would love to take my family there one day. I grew up in the pacific northwest in a town across the Puget Sound from Seattle. We have since relocated to California but find ourselves missing the greenery and rain of the northwest.




Star-studded Fashion at the 2021 OSCARS

2019 Oscar Award Jewelry Trends Blog Banner

As the crown jewel of this year’s adjusted award season, last night’s Academy Awards held up to the pandemic-era standard. Although the red carpet and attendee list was reduced for this year’s event, those who were in attendance made their presence count. If you’re looking to know exactly what the latest and greatest in fashion is, just look at this year’s star-studded celebrities attending the Oscars.

This year, Shelby and Taylor from Stuller’s fine jewelry team are giving their expert opinions on what styles topped of their lists. Follow along for all the fashion inspo you’ve been waiting for.

Shelby’s Take: Diamonds Shined Bright

Even though expectations might have been lowered for another socially distanced award show, Shelby was pleasantly surprised at the elegance that took the stage.

“Although this year’s show may have been scaled down in attendance, diamond fashion was definitely scaled all the way up,” she said. “Whether it’s Zendaya’s canary diamond suite or Isla Fisher’s stacked line necklaces, carat weight seemed to outweigh the 8.5 pound gold keepsakes across the board.”

Enjoy Shelby’s top trends from the evening.

Canary Diamonds

Spring is in the air and that means everyone is looking for the perfect splash of color. Zendaya and Andra Day were seen making their own splash on the red carpet last night sporting beautiful pieces set with sunshine-inspired stones.

Canary yellow diamonds (DIAMOND-GEN:298100:G) are the perfect complement to any piece, such as earrings and rings. Try setting a square engagement ring mounting (122394:1581:P) or stunning teardrop earrings (84396:116:P) with diamonds that give you a spark of colorful inspiration.

Line Necklaces

Continuing on with the love of diamonds, Shelby noticed that diamond line necklaces were the real ultimate accessory of the evening. Vanessa Kirby, Isla Fisher, and Tiara Thomas were all seen sporting eye-catching diamond line necklaces. Simple in design, but truly stunning in effect. Another great fact about this trend is that is not isolated to just women. Daniel Kaluuya from “Judas and the Black Messiah” also grabbed Shelby’s attention with his own stunning line necklace. Everyone loves a versatile piece!

The beauty and elegance of this accessory cannot be emphasized enough. For a classic appeal, choose a white gold line necklace set with natural diamonds (68226:101:P). For a more progressive style, enjoy a stunning graduated line necklace set with lab-grown diamonds (653717:LG101:P).

Ear Climbers

Who doesn’t love a good stackable trend? Shelby certainly does and noticed that Regina King glowed with diamond ear climbers as she made her directing debut this season. Producer of the feature documentary “Collective” Bianca Oana also looked beautiful with floral-inspired ear climbers. Floral-inspired accessories in fashion are standing out and are more than just a seasonal favorite.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Regina King (@iamreginaking)

Finding floral-inspired climbers to add to an ear stack collection is an absolute necessity. Shelby’s top recommendations include two gorgeous earring climbers (86946:600:P and 81221:60000:P).

Taylor’s Take: The Award Goes to Layers

In Taylor’s opinion, the real Academy Award winner is a solid layered combination, particularly on the fingers and wrists.

“Celebrities were layering on the jewelry after their year-long break from the red carpet,” she said. “Chunky rings were having a moment on both men and women! Lots of stacks happening on the fingers and wrists. Why wear one ring when you can wear five?”

Honestly, we couldn’t agree more. Check out Taylor’s favorite looks from the evening.

Chunky Rings

Ring stacks are a prominent look among men and women with last night being no exception. Colman Domingo and Trish Summerville were perfect examples of having stunning ring stacks made with beautifully chunky rings.

A post shared by Colman Domingo (@kingofbingo)

Finding ring statements for both daily wear or formal occasions are all about expressing personal style. Choose from Stuller’s selection of dome rings that truly go with anything (124572, 72173, 52257, and 5206).

Chains

Rings weren’t the only chunky accessories that saw some love last night. Taylor had a keen eye and noticed some chain pieces capturing attention. Lakeith Stanfield featured chain both on his neck and wrist. He took a bold look to another level and really made us love this modern trend even more.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by The Academy (@theacademy)

It’s no secret that we love the chain trend, so we are happy to take any opportunity to feature a favorite piece. Stanfield’s look reminded Taylor of a stunning accented curb bracelet (BRC822:601:P) in our collection that would look perfect for someone seeking to stand out.

Colored Accents

Taylor agreed with Shelby that it was clear that a splash of color was a clear favorite last night. Angela Basset joined Zendaya and Andra Day in the world of color with jaw-droppingly gorgeous earrings that went perfectly with her vibrant red ensemble.

A post shared by Okayplayer. (@okayplayer)

Colorful gemstones deserve their chance to grab attention as well! Pairing gemstones and diamonds together make a match made in heaven, as seen with these lab-grown ruby and diamond accented dangle earrings (86989:6020:P).

Award Show Beauty

Shout out to Shelby and Taylor for giving us their hot takes on this year’s fashion seen at the Oscars. As expected, the Academy Awards did not disappoint in the realm of fashion last night. Judging from Shelby and Taylor’s picks, styles that are bold and make a statement are where you should take inspiration. We can’t wait to see where these looks go throughout the year!

Ring Stacks

All jewelry tells a story and a fun, on-trend way for friends to tell theirs is through ring stacks. Simple pinky rings or bold choices complete with diamonds or gemstones make for the perfect additions to anyone’s ring stack assortment. Check out a recent blog post where our team provided style suggestions for ring stacks based on personality and taste.

Origins of Galentine’s Day

If you have never seen the popular television show Parks and Recreation, you are seriously missing out. Other than being a memorable show about friendship in a small town’s city government and being gut-wrenchingly hysterical, Parks and Recreation has left a lasting impression on popular culture even years after the airing of its final episode – including the creation of an entire holiday. Thus, the inaugural celebration of Galentine’s Day was born.

In episode 16 of season 2 of Parks and Recreation (aired February 2010), lead character Leslie Knope introduces Galentine’s Day as a day to show your love to the girls that make up your support system. Honestly, Leslie explains it best: “Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”




Celebrate BeyDay with Styles Fit for Queen Bey Herself

The Beyhive is buzzing as we are bowing down in celebration of the flawless Queen Bey’s birthday. For 39 years, Beyoncé has graced the world with stellar performances, empowering music, and jaw-dropping style. Those who have been long-time fans of the Houston-native musical icon look back on various phases of her career and reminisce – her time with Destiny’s Child, the creation of everyone’s favorite alter ego Sasha Fierce, the love story between her and her husband Jay Z, the feeling of confidence you got when singing Single Ladies at the top of your lungs, the birth of Blue Ivy, the iconic gold Peter Dundas gown that highlighted her baby bump at the Grammy’s, performing at Coachella shortly after giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir.

Not only has Bey created memorable musical moments for us over the years, she is also known for her impeccable style and striking jewelry selections. Her looks are always blowing us away – from beautiful diamond pieces and gold that could break your heart to cutting-edge, fashionable hoop earrings and gorgeous emeralds. If you want your customers to stun the masses like Bey, be sure to suggest styles that allow them to be bold, be confident, and be noticed. Want some inspiration? Check out some of our favorite pieces that will make you want to put a ring on it.

Big, Bold, Beautiful Diamonds

Diamonds certainly are Beyoncé’s best friend. From being sewn into clothing – such as the black diamond dress from her Formation World Tour – to being used in jewelry settings that are the talk of town, like the Messika silk tie diamond necklace from her performance at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, her approach to utilizing diamonds in fashion is inspiring and eye-catching. Nothing grabs attention quite like a beautiful diamond and we are crazy in love with them.

While having entire garments made of diamonds isn’t the goal for the average customer, suggest sporting elegant Lab-Grown Diamond Earrings (653632) or a stunning Diamond Pavé Ball Pendant (653709) to let your customer feel big, bold, and beautiful.

Stylized Gold

Various metals will come in and out as trends, but gold will always be in style. Beyoncé left a lasting impression with gold during the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. Not only did she rock the gold Dundas gown, but she was also adorned with an intricate gold choker, golden hoop earrings, and an assortment of bangles on each arm. Not to mention the giant gold headdress complete with a halo.

Adding gold to your customer’s ensemble will help them complete any look, both casual and formal. Stuller’s Old World Globe Necklace (87532) can brighten anyone’s day and make them feel like they run the world.

Hoop Statement Earrings

The Queen Bey is known for her accessories that make a statement and grab attention. One of our favorite looks are her hoop earring choices. For example, in 2017, she attended a Bruno Mars concert shortly after giving birth to her twins, Rumi and Sir. She wore a set of gold hoop earrings with the word “chunky” placed on them. Women’s bodies are often scrutinized after giving birth, but Beyoncé had a body positive message to love your body because it is golden.

Encourage your customers to get their own hoops that make them feel golden with our gorgeous Flexible Endless Hoop Earrings (52243). Pair them with any item from our Petite Pavé Dangle Collection for a unique statement piece.

Large, Elegant Emeralds

You won’t only see Bey wearing dazzling diamonds. Another gemstone she keeps prominent in her collection is emeralds. One of our most memorable moments includes her diamond and emerald baubles valued at $10 million that she wore to the 57th Annual Grammy Awards where she won “Best R&B Performance” for her song Drunk in Love. Let’s also not forget the emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings and ring valued at $2.5 million she wore when she sang the National Anthem at President Obama’s Inauguration in 2013. These pieces are in our sweet dreams and we are green with envy.

Your customers could add a touch of emerald to their ensemble at a great price point with an Emerald Petite Dome Ring (72173) from 302® Fine Jewelry. While not the flashy-sized emeralds donned by Beyoncé, this sleek and modern emerald ring is rising in style and popularity. It’s the “little something extra” Queen Bey would be proud of.

These styles are truly irreplaceable and always fill us with inspiration. Happy Birthday, Beyoncé. Stay fierce until the end of time.

Over the past year, we have been layering rose-cut engagement rings into our assortment. Rose-cut stones date back to the sixteenth century, but have grown in popularity the last few years.  These trending stones allow us to design into bigger carat looks while keeping the total carat weight low because of the 24 facets. These have such a beautiful, low profile look on the hand and are a perfect fit for the low key, elegant bride who wants a non-traditional diamond engagement ring.
