5 Diamond Trends, According to the Fancy Specialists at Rahaminov


On day one of the Luxury show in Las Vegas in late May, Tamara Rahaminov Goldfiner, the designer for Los Angeles-based diamond jewelry brand Rahaminov, greeted retailers and press wearing an 18k yellow gold tennis necklace featuring more than 54 carats of mixed-cut fancy yellow diamonds, as well as a pair of long linear gold earrings stacked with over 12 carats of Asscher-cut fancy yellow diamonds.

It was, by all accounts, her laid-back look.

“Everything in yellow gold is more casual,” Goldfiner said by way of explaining a trend she’s noticed among her clients, who are asking for more “wearable” pieces.

“They want something that’s not going to be tied up in a safe,” echoed Melanie Goldfiner Goldberg, Rahaminov’s director of marketing and business development (and Tamara’s daughter).

Besides its yellow metal setting, Tamara’s necklace hit the right trend notes for another reason: It combines various diamond silhouettes, including ovals, pears, hearts, and radiants, in the type of mixed-cut look that is all the rage now that basic, same-shape tennis necklaces and bracelets are so ubiquitous.

Shapes in general are trending—especially elongated examples such as long radiants and long ovals. At Rahaminov, the latter are termed “Mováls” (as in, modified ovals), and according to Goldberg, they’ve been quite popular.

When it comes to the diamond necklace style du jour, it is undoubtedly the lariat, sometimes called the Y necklace. When strung with nearly 33 carats of Movál diamonds, as below, the only question is Y not?

Last but certainly not least, don’t count out the single biggest trending style in the diamond jewelry category circa 2024: brooches, which, according to Goldberg, have been “insane” ever since Robert Downey Jr. wore Rahaminov’s diamond starfish pin to the BAFTAs in February.
