* Brands mentioned by more than one of 139 Brain Squad members when we asked what had been their best-selling wedding jewelry brands in the past 12 months.

 

Lashbrook Designs are really popular since they revamped their look. — Carol Drake, Touch of Silver Gold & Old , Nashville, IN

Fantasy Cut premium cut round diamonds (100 facet from IDD), set into semi-mounts from Ashi. — Larry Exum, Chandlee Jewelers, Athens, GA

Verragio semi-mounts with rose gold trim. A. Jaffe is coming back. — Milton Doolittle, Benold’s Jewelers, Austin, TX

We do well with Mark Schneider Design, Simon Golub and Gabriel & Co., which pretty much runs the gamut of price points, but that doesn’t seem to matter. — Chuck Kuba, Iowa Diamond, Des Moines, IA

Benchmark for bands. His band $300. Levy Creations for settings. Her engagement ring setting $1,500 to $2,000. Diamond average size 0.75 to 1.25 carats. — Christine Matlack, E.G. Landis Jewelers, Boyertown, PA

Rose gold is finally catching fire, especially in Frederic Sage pieces. Adwar, Overnight and Unique Settings have the halo and solitaire selections we need if we don’t create a custom piece. — Denise Oros, Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

Victor Corp., Ostbye and Empire Corp. Halos are still strong, and we still have sales of three-stone rings, but micro-pavé settings beat them all. — Rosanne Kroen, Rosanne’s Diamonds & Gold, South Bend, IN

I’ve done well with Joshua J and Precision Set. We’re selling a lot of ovals and cushion cuts. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX

Bridal Bells and Niki J by Gems One. — Bill Warren, The Gold Mine, Hudson, NC

Ever & Ever by Stuller is a great line that provides prototypes and customization options! — Traci Hill, Got Rocks, Harrisonburg, VA

Romance by Kim International and Star Gems — some two-tones, but mostly still white gold and still mostly halo styles. Some movement to non-halo with side diamonds. — James Gattas, James Gattas Jewelers, Memphis, TN

The Love Bright line from Ashi has shown the biggest increase in activity in the last year. — James Sickinger, Sickinger’s Jewelry, Lowell, IN

We’re thrilled to now have the L’Amour Crisscut (by Christopher Designs) diamond engagement rings and wedding bands. They are beyond stunning!  — Mary Jo Chanski, Hannoush Jewelers, Rutland, VT

Amavida by Gabriel & Co., Simon G, Classique, and JB Star crossing all price categories. — Bob Richards, Bob Richards Jewelers, Germantown, TN
