There's no doubt, the increasing number of marriages indicate it's still a wonderful institution. 'A Bunch Of Romantics 7 Says Jeweler Of Young Generation By Monique New York News Writer PARIS -- The young generation? A bunch of romantics," says experts Paris jeweler Raymond Gillet, who stocks more than 150 different wedding bands, many antique reproductions. : French teenagers are so sentimental they even exchange mini-bands to mark a first date," he reveals. At $20 each, in pink or gray gold as fine as thread, they are worn by both sexes. ; Even more striking is the statistic that for the first time sentimental designs have outsold traditional gold bands (what the .trade calls curtain rings). · "Our open-work garland of entwined ivy leaves copies from a Victorian original at $200 tops all sales," says Gillet. · Other favorites include the so-called ·"water witch" (because by an optical illusion it appears to flow in a liquid stream around the finger) and the design of clasped hands around a diamond-centered gold heart. The oldest motif is a knotted band mimicking the plaited wheat straw that Christian slaves of the Romans gave to their ·wives. Those who worked the boats then are reputed to have used a secret chapel close to the present site of the Gillet store, at 19 Rue d'Arcole-squeezed between the ·banks of the Seine and Notre Dame cath- iedral. I Much, in demand are made-to-order 'wedding rings that hinge open to offer "space for a personal message or secret in- [scription. "The same principle as the Borgia's poison ring," quips Gillet, only in -reverse!" ~. However, most of the 57 designers competing in the National Diamond Award this year opted for contemporary shapes. First prize went to woman jeweler Mar- "ianne Camus for a long and narrow dia- inond solitaire embedded sideways into a plain gold band. . ·· Another winner was Pascal Morabito, who sets engagement and wedding dia- 'monds into transparent lucite so that the ·stones have no visible means of support. His wedding ring droos 20 tiny diamonds into crystal-clear plastic by a special Morabito -- patented process to achieve the effect he calls diamond in aspic." And in this ultra-modern untarnishable setting, the engagement ring uses even more stones to glow on the finger like a constellation of stars.
