“They want something that is made just for them,” Snow said. “Many times they like to participate in the actual design of the piece.

Snow said in Mississippi, couples are still loving the vintage and halo looks of engagement rings as well as the classic looks of the solitaire, mostly in the white metals of 10-, 14-, and 18-karat and platinum.

“However, designers from Europe, New York and California are moving back into yellow metals, two-tone mixed metals, as well as rose-colored metals.

“What we do is try to find out what metal looks best on a person’s skin tone,” Snow said.

Snow said men’s wedding bands have taken “a giant leap” in design and materials. A few examples include mixed white and yellow gold metals, stainless metal, cobalt, tungsten, and wood inlay.
