Ring designers clued us in on the hottest new engagement ring styles. A simple solitaire may be a classic (and safe) choice, but you’re going to want to think out of the box once you see these unique dazzlers. An engagement ring is the most important piece of jewellery a woman will own in her lifetime, so picking the perfect ring involves finding a design that is trendy but also timeless. In the past years many of the diamond jewellery trends have been influenced by the new wedding styles and celebrity engagements. So the jewellery industry had to find a compromise between a modern and classic style in order to help every woman find the ring or rook piercing of her dreams.
Wedding Ring Trends for 2015
Gemstone Diamond Engagement Rings
A white diamond is usually the most popular choice for centre stones, but this year gemstones such as blue sapphire, emerald or pink sapphire are the new trend and they are perfect for the woman who wants to wear a really unique ring.
A rose gold band makes a princess cut engagement ring different and feminine. This romantic and warm colour suits on all skin tones and enhances the sparkle of the diamond.
Blake Lively, ‘Gossip Girl’ star, has chosen a rose gold engagement rings and it look absolutely beautiful. One might say she launched this new trend!
Halo engagement rings made a huge comeback a few years ago. This vintage-inspired style is increasing is popularity. So into 2015 we will still see this trend, but that will have something new… Double halo settings and split shanks.
The halo designs, inspired by Art deco style, creates an elegant, classic style that emphasises the size of centre diamond. These designs work for any woman who would like to wear a beautiful ring with a vintage touch! If the Art Deco style is your favourite one discover the Paul Sheeran Heirloom Collection.
This summer a new trend is appearing around septum and nipple piercings. Get a little more naughty and sexy with these two piercings. Hey, nd if you scared to get our nose pierced, no worries, there are also fake septum piercings for you to wear this year.
Fancy diamond shape
The round brilliant or princess shape never go out of style, and they are a perfect choice for the classic woman. But this year fancy diamond shapes, such as pear, oval or baguette, will seduce a woman who want to stand out of the crowd. Fancy diamond cuts, such as cushion, emerald and Asscher, are becoming increasingly popular – giving your classic engagement ring an art deco, vintage-inspired twist. Cushion cuts, in particular, are gaining ground on the brilliant cut round and princess diamond shapes, appealing with their romantically antique silhouette. Emerald and asscher cut diamonds, have distinctive facet patterns that contrast light and dark planes within each stone.
Solitaire with a Twist
A solitaire or a morganite engagement ring is a timeless ring and in order to add a touch of style we are going to see engagement rings set with twisted bands. This design is still focuses on the beautiful centre diamond, but gives a bit of contemporary style to the band design.
As many sluts do, I see my body as a playground. A playground for me and whoever I permit to view it. Therefore, like any playground mine would not be complete without decorations; graffiti if you will. Tattoos and piercing are often our preferred decor. I have an itty bitty tattoo that does not make me cool or qualify me as a sexy tattoo lady, but I do have some badass piercings!
In this article, I hope to share with you what I have experienced with these piercings – both during sexy time and just in plain old life – so that you can make an informed decision if you choose to get a piercing to increase your pleasure, and in all aspects of your piercing’s life.
Pain: 10/10 *
Healing: Tedious and long
Payoff: Most likely extra stimulation!
10/10 – *but as any with piercing, it only lasts for long enough for you to realize it really hurts!
I can’t tell you what it felt like the first time, because I broke the first rule of piercings and took hydrocodone before my appointment. I can tell you that I looked down at my nipple and experienced mental pain. There I was, sitting in the chair with a needle just chilling in my nipple, and though I wasn’t feeling physical pain, it hurt something deep in my brain to see such a important part of my womanhood pierced. My friend screamed out “your mother’s a whore!” during her second nipple piercing, so it can’t feel good.
Nipples are notoriously difficult healers, so expect “crusties” for a while. Like bellybutton piercings, your nipple ring can get aggravated by something pulling on it wrong or a product it doesn’t like (like lotion). It is also aggravated by hormonal menstrual cycles in women. This piercing needs to be cleaned daily for the first month with a simple soap or saline solution soak (ask your piercer what they prefer). Later on in the piercing’s life, you’ll need to clean it 2-3 times a week for at least six months.
Bra type suggestions: For the first couple of days I would recommend going with no bra and loose shirts if you can get away with it. If you have big ole titties like me, I’d suggest a full coverage soft bra. I have a Victoria secret yoga lounge bralette that I ADORE, but they don’t sell it anymore. Wear anything that covers well above your nipple. Cups that are diagonal/plunging can shift and pull on your piercing. You want those babies safe and sound deep within the confines of your over the shoulder boulder holder.
Material: Think soft, soft, soft! The inside of the bra should be lined with the same material throughout the whole cup. Except lace. If your bra/bralette is pure lace you could risk getting the ball of the piercing stuck through one of the holes in the lace design, and that sounds like a disaster! You’ll know when it’s time to go back to your sexy clothes, each piercing is different.
Sleeping with your Pierced Tit: Personally, I don’t remember this being a problem, but the internet says sleeping on your stomach will not be comfortable for a little while. Try to sleep on your side or your back.
Sex with your Piercing: You are set to go. You can hop on that as soon as you want, as long as your partner is aware of your new decoration. NO nipple pinching, licking, sucking, or biting yet! Honestly, you will be very aware of what you’re comfortable with in the beginning, stimulation wise, so just listen to your body. There is no official information of oral stimulation and the healing process, but I’d say stay away from it for a while – or if you can’t, at least clean it well after. Actually, clean it well after sex anyways. You know, sweat and cum and stuff.
Working out with it: Again, I don’t remember this being a problem, as long as I cleaned it as soon as I could after my workout. See bra type and material suggestions above for what you should wear.
Moderate. Be careful. Don’t let anything get wrapped around it. If something pulls on it, you won’t be a happy camper. My worst story about my piercing is that I somehow got my hair looped around my piercing. If something is caught, DO NOT use force. Inspect the problem and deal with it as gently as you can. Try to keep your jewelry in at all costs! If you have to unscrew a ball, try to keep the bar in it’s normal position. Remember that ball piercings screw on in opposite directions of each other!
Healing time: 3-6 months. My piercer told me “the bigger the boobs, the longer the wait” so keep that in mind. You probably will have to keep cleaning it long after it’s healed due to the problems listed in “healing” above.
Nipple piercings can increase your stimulation, especially if you already like nipple play. Yes, you heard right! But, it’s also been known to decrease stimulation. I’m on the lucky side of this, but I only have one nipple done! What does it feel like? I’d describe it as an extra tickle on top of regular nipple touchy feelies. All aboard!
Last word: I find myself playing with my piercing all the time; in class and in stores, I can’t keep my hands off of it. Good luck!
Clit Piercing (Vertical Clitoral Hood)
Pain: 7/10 *
Either my piercer was bad or I’m super sensitive. I’d read online that the piercing is similar to getting your ear pierced, but I had some qualms anyways. Knowing myself and my clit, I know that I’m a squirmer. So when she stuck a needle into me, I jumped, which may have added to the pain. I don’t know if it was the shock or the stimulation of the cold metal right by my clit, but it was easily my most painful piercing. As I say with every description of piercing pain, the pain lasted in all 5-6 seconds, including her inserting the jewelry. Find more information about the Christina Genital Piercing here.
Cleaning: Like most piercings, use a wound spray or a simple saline soak. This one is definitely weird to clean because it’s in a sensitive spot, but sometimes the sensation of the warm water is fun too! You need to really clean it every day for a month, especially after sexual activities. One website suggests you only dry your piercing using disposable products due to harboring of bacteria on towels, but I’m not that picky, and it turned out just fine.
Healing Pain:Very little healing pain. This baby about heals itself! There is some pain if I squeeze my legs together wrong or bang it on something (it can happen!) but all in all, it’s been really painless.
Panties: Stick to cotton and not thongs or tight panties. Cotton is breathable and always good for post-piercing clothing. Stay away from thongs for a week or so because of the pressure they can put on your clit.
SEX: If you’re like me, you probably sent out a mass snapchat to the boy toys in your phone with this piercing and can’t wait to try it out. My piercer said I should wait TWO FULL WEEKS to have sex – but of course, I didn’t. Once you feel like you’re ready or that you can’t wait any longer, make sure you use a barrier method to protect your clit (male condoms or dental dam for oral) and that you clean it well after. Masturbation wise: don’t use a lube that your body isn’t used to. Just like with sex, clean the piercing immediately after.
The Sexiets Piercing Payoff
For me, it’s been awesome!
Everyday life: I don’t want you to get your expectations up to high, I’m not walking around having orgasms every minute like Tamara Parks but I do feel like I’m having more fun than other people do doing the same activities.
Sex: The idea is that, especially during sex, the bottom ball of your piercing will come in contact with your clit, adding a stimulation that wasn’t there before.
Masturbation: It’s actually a little harder to stimulate my clit since I got this done. It’s not physically difficult – I just have to move around the jewelry. Lately, I’ve been flipping the bottom bar up (which gets the hood out of the way) and then I get direct and almost unbearable direct clit stimulation.
In the expert’s words:
“The piercing goes through only a thin bit of tissue above the clitoris (NOT through it) but the jewelry itself touches the clitoris. This means that when there is any activity in the area, the clitoris will receive more direct stimulation. Most women like this a lot. In fact, I distributed a research study for the University of South Alabama regarding VCH piercings and female sexual satisfaction! The data (published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology) has shown that this piercing DOES result in increases in sexual DESIRE!”
But… there’s always the possibility something could go wrong. There is a myth that it desensitizes your clit, which after doing my research on the internet and at my well loved parlor, I’ve discovered that it is just that: a myth. The general opinion is that as your body gets used to the piercing, you don’t feel it as much in little activities as you used to. Basically, you just get used to it. But it in no way desensitizes your clit itself.
Some of the most memorable swimsuits were worn by women other than bikini models, yet the public has never forgotten about those looks. If you ask anyone born in the 60s to recall any such moment during their lives, when a bathing suit made headlines, they won’t hesitate for a second before blurting out Farrah Fawcett’s name, and then describing that red full-body swimsuit she once modeled in the 70s. Fawcett’s photograph had sold in the millions, with her poster hanging in teen’s lockers at school as well as on bedroom walls.
An early swimsuit bombshell, at a time when fashions tended to sway towards the conservative, was Esther Williams. Esther Williams had a fabulous figure, and elegant swimwear in the 1940s and 50s were made famous when she appeared in movies that highlighted her synchronized swimming abilities. Esther’s suits were very classic and glamorous, her hair and makeup were always immaculate, and every woman back in the day wanted to look as good as Esther Williams, even if they didn’t know how to swim.
Elizabeth Taylor in a white swimsuit captured attention when she starred in a 50s film titled, “Suddenly Last Summer.” Her pose didn’t really show much of the suit, yet that moment had become etched in people’s memories as iconic.
Deborah Kerr, made this look extremely sexy in the 1953 film “From Here to Eternity.” Her suit embodied that famous pointed bra look and a tailored waistline prevalent in fashion during those years. She starred alongside another iconic film star Burt Lancester, but his suit went completely unnoticed while Kerr splashed in the waves in her suit.
When thinking famous bikinis, it’s pretty ironic that a fur swimsuit that would be impossible to wear in the water was nevertheless made famous when Raquel Welch wore it the classic film from the 60 titled “One Million Years BC.”
Ursula Andress stepped out of the water as a Bond Girl in the 1962 film “Dr. No,” wearing a two-piece white bikini with a diving knife strapped to her side. This is a moment in Bond-film-history that many young boys who’ve since grown to manhood, fondly remember.
Marilyn Monroe again made headlines when she posed in a white one-piece while vacationing with her husband Arthur Miller at Amagansett Beach, Long Island. Those days, when the fashion world seems to have a preference for slender physiques, still, women such as Marilyn with fuller figures remain the image that continues to stick in people’s minds.
Brigitte Bardot was known as one of the world’s biggest sex symbols in the 60s; she could wear a burlap sack and make it look good. So it’s no surprise that when she posed in this swimsuit– notice how ill-fitting is was with loose fabric on her bottom– no one else but Bridgitte would have been able to turn it into the sensation that it had become.
Pamela Anderson’s image has become engrained in people’s minds as that girl from Baywatch in the red swimsuit. Unlike Farrah, Pamela seems less shy. More comfortable in what she’s wearing, and showing a lot more of her body. The high-waist design, low cut neckline coupled with Pamela’s big blonde hair, earned her the status of an icon and became a look that many women would try to emulate.
After viewing each and every photograph, the first thought that comes to mind is how so many designers had created swimsuits and cheap opal engagement rings over the years that bear a strikingly similar style to those worn by these famous women. Some of the suits worn by these women looked simple, others impractical, especially those made famous in the 50s that bore a cinched waist, yet somehow they had turned into a sensation. So, what made those moments so memorable after all? Perhaps the fact that the women who wore those suits did so with a definite attitude and sex appeal; only a handful of the suits made famous were a two-piece, yet each one of those actresses knew how to wear their suits in a way that caught the attention of both men and women alike. The train their body with bosu balls workouts and other fitness equipment. They posed in such a way that elevated their suits to the status of most iconic swimwear moments in history.
