A Journey Through Time: The 2000s

Join us in celebrating Holt's 75th anniversary as we take a nostalgic journey through the decades that have shaped our industry. This week, we focus on the exciting 2000s, a period marked by the dawn of a new millennium.

What happened in the 2000s?

2000s Jewellery Trends:

In the world of jewellery, the 2000s witnessed the rise of halo rings as a popular choice for engagement rings. Coloured diamonds, like those embraced by JLo and Paris Hilton, became a trendsetter. Pave bands gained popularity in the mid-2000s, while double bands and radiant cuts dominated towards the end of the decade.

Vera Wang emerged as a prominent bridal designer, renowned for her exquisite strapless and spaghetti strap dresses. The early 2000s favored simple, unadorned gowns, but brides later embraced embellishments and lace in the mid-2000s.
