Bridesmaid Bling

Planning a wedding is no small feat. With so many details to oversee many couples find themselves not only leaning on each other throughout the planning process, but their beloved bridal party as well. Odds are these nearest and dearest friends will lend a hand on more than one occasion such as pitching in for the bridal shower, organizing a bachelorette getaway and volunteering their time for bridesmaid dress fittings. Giving your bridesmaids a thank-you gift is not required, but it never goes unappreciated as a thoughtful token of your gratitude.

The great thing is that there is no “right or wrong” bridesmaid gift. You can get as creative as you want. However, it is always a good idea to gift them something multifunctional and timeless – such as a new piece of jewelry. After all, who wouldn’t love to receive a pretty new pair of earrings, a bracelet or a necklace? Plus, it will take the guesswork out of how they should accessorize their dress on the wedding day.  

Alor has a great line of bracelets that would be perfect for a wedding day – and any day thereafter. Featured on CBS’ The Talk, these Love Affirmation bangles will show your girls how close you hold them to your heart.  

Available in yellow gold, rose gold or black & silver, each feature an 18karat yellow gold charm, engraved with the word LOVE and a 0.01karat diamond. With three styles to choose from you can take your pick depending on the color of their bridesmaid dress.

If you like the idea of giving your girls each a different gift with the same theme, Honora has a wide variety of pearl earrings that could work well with anyone’s individual style. Plus, the members of your wedding party will appreciate the extra time you took to select the specific pair for each of them. 


You can keep the look consistent by selecting different pairs within the same color family, such as these beauties all with black, white and/or grey tones. All are timeless looks, featuring freshwater cultured pearls set in sterling silver. 

6-11No matter what style of jewelry you choose for your bridesmaids, your wedding party’s been with you since the beginning – and a lot of times this even means at the beginning of the relationship with your fiancé. Taking the time to pick out a thoughtful gift as a token of appreciation and a sweet memento of your wedding is always the right move.


Congratulations and best wishes on your wedding day. It will be a night you and your bridal party will always remember.





Strike Up the Band for Summer Weddings!

 Is there anything more promising than a summer wedding?  Love is in the air and summer romances flourish on the dance floor to the beat of a great band. Dresses swirling and men shedding their tuxedo jackets as the evening progresses, indoors or outside, few celebrations capture the pure joy and festivity of a summer reception.

If you are planning a summer wedding, chances are that you’re a social creature who wants to be surrounded by family, loved ones and friends galore on your special day.

You want your guests to be entertained in style, while fixing their eyes firmly on you!  Enjoy the spotlight, you deserve it.  Just like you deserve a wedding band that reflects your individuality and generosity of spirit.

“I Do’s” on the Beach

Have you chosen a beach venue for your nuptials?  Do you just love the informal serenity of sun and sand and waves lapping at the shore.  If your gown simple yet elegant?  Does the menu feature oysters and lobsters?

If you like a little bit of sunshine with your special moments, then you’ll love this Diamond Wedding Band from Verragio.  In 14 karat white and yellow gold with 0.45cts of diamonds, this band delivers a ray of sunshine between each flounce of diamonds.  Its lively and joyous, just like your wedding.  Wear it and remember the feeling always!


City Slickers

Glamour, elegance, air conditioning, nothing beats the view of a city skyline from the floor to ceiling windows of a hotel ballroom.  Dance the night away in the city of your choice. The cocktail hour is amazing.  Your gown is to die for. Your guests are soaking up the sumptuous splendor of a perfectly planned reception with all the bells and whistles. All is lavish and luxurious.

If your engagement ring wasn’t so fabulous, it might be jealous of your new wedding band from George Press.  In vibrant platinum with 7.85cts of stunning emerald cut diamonds, this is a ring for the society pages. Custom made for you by George Press himself, you can alter it to your choosing.  But you know what they say – don’t mess with perfection!


Garden of Eden

Gardens full of roses, hydrangeas and heavenly-scented blooms.  A pergola for the vows perhaps, or an arbor laden with crystals and wisteria.  The ideal backdrop for the pledging of your lifetime troths. Your gown is flowing and romantic. Flowers adorn your hair. Your groom is fresh-faced and eager. Love doesn’t get any better than this.

Afterwards, a large reception tent has been transformed into a bower suitable for two lovebirds and their flock of treasured guests. On your hand is a symbol of your undying love and fidelity. A daisy chain of sparkling diamonds from Christopher Designs. Wrought in 18 karat white gold and 0.57cts of diamonds, it’s whimsical elegance perfectly captures your starry-eyed devotion to each other.  Fairy-tale and tether, an enchanting bond for all time.

Exotic Escapades

Does any phrase generate as much excitement as “Destination Wedding!”  Don’t we all wish we were invited to one? The perfect excuse to take a vacation with loved ones in tow.  Days of celebrations in some enchanting paradise, complete with fruity frozen cocktails and beach lounges.  Count me in!!!

Your reception features island cuisine and limbo contests.  Your dress shows your curves and sets off your newly acquired golden tan.  Tiki torches flare on the edges of the dance floor and everyone is letting loose. You don’t play by the usual rules and neither does your wedding band. Why line your diamonds up in a row when they can dance with abandon along the platinum perimeter of this custom-made George Press cluster wedding band.  As mischievous and fun-loving as you are, this ring will be as unforgettable as your wedding trip!

Choose a wedding band with a personality that mirrors your own.  One that reminds you of the day you put it on, and the celebration that followed. Remember, “special” isn’t limited to  the engagement ring, “special” isn’t limited at all!
