Angara Sees Flower Power and Vibrant Hues as Top Spring Trends


With winter fading and spring marching in, Angara and other fine jewelry brands are releasing collections that use vibrant gemstones in shapes inspired by a blossoming garden.

“Spring is synonymous with a burst of color, particularly happy greens, yellows, pinks, sky blues, and purples,” says Angara cofounder Aditi Daga. “Angara has an array of precious and semiprecious gemstone jewelry in nature-inspired designs to match that spring vibe.”

The vernal equinox, which will occur at 11:06 p.m. Eastern time on March 19, marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The season brings not only warmer temperatures and sunny days, says Daga, but also jewelry that celebrates the season’s symbols. For Angara, that includes sparkling butterfly rings, flower-shape pendants, and olive branch bracelets and necklaces.

Angara peridot pendant
Angara’s Trillium flower pendant ($2,319) features three marquis-shape peridots weighing a total of 4.2 carats and 18 round diamonds, 0.55 cts. t.w.

“Spring is all about renewal, and refreshing your wardrobe with a pop of color is the perfect way to experience it,” Daga says. “Think jewelry dressed in gemstones like pink and yellow sapphire, peridot, opal, aquamarine, ruby, emerald, and amethyst that reflect the palette of nature in bloom.”

A big trend for spring 2024 is “color, color, and more color,” she says. “Greens are really in vogue right now. We’re seeing a surge in the popularity of nature-inspired jewelry and vibrant hues, whether they’re lab-grown or natural gemstones.”

While sapphires, rubies, and emeralds are favorites year-around, Angara tends to see an increased interest in amethyst and aquamarine as spring nears (they happen to be the birthstones of February and March, respectively), Daga says.

Angara pink sapphire ring
Angara’s 14k rose gold butterfly bypass ring ($829) has 17 round pink sapphires and 16 round diamonds.

Opals and pearls are also quite popular this time of year, she says. “Classic pearls are making a comeback, offering a chic yet effortless way to accessorize any spring outfit.”

Another trend Daga has noted for the season: “More is more.” She says, “We are telling people to mix, match, stack, and layer this spring. Tennis bracelets in mixed metals, name necklaces paired with chains of various textures, and ear stacks features a mix of hoops and studs are absolute must-haves.”

Angara recently added lab-grown diamond and gemstone jewelry, as consumer interest has increased. “It caters to the growing desire for both ethical and price-conscious fine jewelry,” Daga says.

Angara emerald bracelet
Another nature-inspired piece from Angara is the Olive Branch bracelet ($1,519), with one 0.2 ct. pear-shape emerald and five 0.65 ct. t.w. marquise emeralds.

“Our lab-grown pieces have the same brilliance and craftsmanship as their nature counterparts.… This allows us to democratize luxury, making fine jewelry accessible to a wider audience,” she says.

With couples getting engaged, Angara is seeing an uptick in interest in solitaire rings and jewelry that tells a story of love and new beginnings.

“We’ve also added some stunning engagement ring designs to our collections this year, given that our customers are increasingly seeking more colored gemstone options as well as upgrades to stones with higher carat weight,” Daga says. “Our Create With Angara feature offers them a range of customization options, allowing them to design a one-of-a-kind ring.”
