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.

 

 

 

 


Springtime Florals for Spring Weddings

Half a dozen (or so) nor’easters later, spring has finally sprung! With so much warmer weather fun to look forward to, we cannot wait to kick it all off with spring weddings. Spring is a time of transformation with the promise of rebirth and renewal, love and hope abundant in the warm, sweet air.  After the dark and gloomy winter months, springtime welcomes color back into our lives with the beautiful greens of new leaves appearing on trees, the soft pastels of blooming flowers, and bright yellows of warm spring days. Whether you are attending a spring wedding as a guest, an attendant…or the guest of honor, it is a great season full of endless options to compliment your ceremony and reception looks.

Nothing says spring more than flowers, and weddings are known for their gorgeous arrangements from the bouquets and boutonnieres to the table settings. But how about some floral jewelry??

Tulips are a well-known spring flower favorite, making this gorgeous diamond and pink sapphire necklace the ideal accessory for that upcoming garden wedding you’ve been looking forward to.

1

Another diamond and sapphire floral necklace option is this stunning piece by Gregg Ruth. This beauty will fit right in at the upcoming black tie wedding you RSVP’ed to. It will dazzle on the dance floor with 18 karats of white gold, 0.34cts of diamonds and 2.43cts of rich blue sapphires.

If you love the ideal of floral-inspired jewelry, but would rather finish off your spring wedding look with a pair of beautiful earrings, here are four very different – but equally lovely – options.

Do you have an upcoming wedding where you must dress to impress? Perhaps as the mother of the bride or groom? These diamond drop floral earrings are nothing short of spectacular. You will never think of floral details the same way again once these beauties are hanging from your ears.

Made with 18karat white gold, the pair features 7.28cts of sparkling diamonds for an exquisitely stunning look. Our designers and gemologists at George Press created this piece exclusively for us – for you.

These enchanting pink sapphire and freshwater pearl earrings would be perfect for an afternoon wedding. Made with 14 karat yellow gold, the pair features 0.70cts of pink sapphires framed by freshwater pearls.

4

Another classic option for an afternoon affair are these mother of pearl and jade Tiffany earrings (does anything spell classy more than vintage Tiffany’s?) with stone inlayed 18karat yellow gold.

5

For a little more color and sparkle, you may want to try these beryl and diamond flower earrings on for size. These little numbers pack a big punch with 3.75cts of pear shaped yellow beryls and 0.24cts of round diamonds.

6

Another sweet floral option, that definitely does not lack in sparkle are these adorable earrings. Simple and sophisticated, they are made with 18karat yellow gold with 0.90cts of round diamonds.

As we leave March behind us – she definitely came in like a lion and out like a lamb this year – and look towards April and the spring we cannot wait to put our snow boots away, thaw out, and welcome in this warmer weather. There is so much to look forward to as we embrace the new season. And if the sight of new buds on trees or flowers poking up from the ground doesn’t make you smile, we know that the spring weddings you have this year – with some great new floral jewelry – definitely will.

Always remember, as Robin Williams once said: “Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Let’s Party!’” so make sure you do…with some superb George Press jewelry on of course.


Beautiful Jewels and a Rainbow of Colors at the 2018 Oscars

 

The most coveted event of the 2018 awards season has finally arrived: The Oscars! This red carpet is like the grand ball for stars in their designer gowns. We could not wait to see what our favorite stars were going to come up with, from the fancy shoes to of course the glittering jewels.

After the sea of black gowns at this year’s Golden Globes, we weren’t sure what to expect. Thankfully, the Oscar’s red carpet treated us to gowns in all colors of the rainbow, and the glittering gems were like the magical pots of gold at the end. Every single look was worthy of a second glance – or more depending on the details.

Gal Gadot, the star of Wonder Woman, looked absolutely wonderful with this 27-carat aquamarine drop necklace with over 1,000 diamonds(!). It definitely made quite the statement and was hard to miss!

If you are looking for your very own necklace that could rival any superhero’s ensemble, look no further than this incredible George Press diamond Riviera necklace. Who needs special powers when this beauty can light up a room? Featuring 23.33cts of diamonds it definitely has the ability to bring people to their knees.

2

If you are after something a little more understated, take a cue from Zoey Deutch. Her simple, yet equally lovely earrings were the ideal accessory to her detailed gown.

Perhaps you have a top with a lot of beadwork in your closet that you love, but never know what to wear with it. Well, these Marco Bicego Siviglia sapphire earrings are just the finishing touch you are looking for. These spectacular little numbers are hand engraved with 18 karat gold featuring vibrant pink sapphires, for just the right pop of color.

4

Helen Miren definitely got the memo about bringing some color to the red carpet, and she glammed it up even more with a breathtaking blue sapphire necklace and coordinating earrings. The simple and flattering lines of her gown really showcased these pieces in all of their glimmering glory.

We all have a simple dress – or two – in our closet. Well, why not be like Helen and step it up a bit? You will never look at that dress the same way once you pair it with these Gregg Ruth diamond and sapphire chandelier earrings. The sparkle of the 0.74cts of diamonds can transform it in the blink of an eye… but why stop there? Helen didn’t.

6

Make her (and her stylist) proud by also wearing this antique diamond and sapphire necklace. You will absolutely fall in love with this exquisite piece, and with 11.63cts of round diamonds and 4.50cts of sapphire, who could blame you? Your reinvigorated dress definitely won’t!

7

Another well-known star of the silver screen, who kept her look clean and classic was Jane Fonda. Her perfectly styled hair and simple neckline gave her drop earrings just enough room to shine. They weren’t overpowering, but you couldn’t help but notice them all at the same time. It was the perfect balance.

These George Press one of a kind drop diamond earrings can give you that same effect. These stunners will captivate anyone and everyone with 4.81cts of fine white, champagne and cognac diamonds.

If perhaps you want something with a touch more drama, these George Press decorative diamond drop earrings may be just right. Another one-of-a-kind piece, these earrings pump up the sparkle with 5.84cts of fine white, cognac and champagne round diamonds.

As awards season winds down, and we (finally!) head towards spring and warmer weather, each of these red carpet looks gave us a taste of fun and playfulness. Whether the stars brought the rainbow to the Oscars red carpet with their couture, their jewelry, or both, it was as night filled with beautiful and impactful statements – from the outfits to the acceptance speeches.


Must-Have Jewelry Trends that Revive your Favorite Looks

As we (finally!) start to move towards spring trends and embrace a new season, it is time to give our accessories a little spring cleaning and revive some classic looks to make them more distinct and personal. These range from pendant necklaces to layer, gold hoops of all sizes and statement rings that cannot be missed.

Eye-catching pendants are always an unexpected way to add some flair to an outfit, and you can get way more mileage out of your jewelry collection if you know how to layer your pieces. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, or worry about spacing your necklaces out evenly. In fact, some necklaces with pendants will help your chains stay untangled.

To break up a solid colored top, wear necklaces in the same metal. Two beautiful options would be these sapphire and diamond necklaces by Gregg Ruth.

The top pendant is made with 18 karat while gold featuring 0.23cts of diamonds and 1.54cts of sapphires. The equally gorgeous one below is also made in 18 karat white gold with 0.34cts of diamonds and 2.43cts of rich blue sapphires. By pairing these two stunners together, imagine the extra sparkle it would bring to your favorite understated top!

 

1 2If you plan on wearing a brighter blouse, go for a pendant that is a little more subtle in color – but is still attention grabbing. Gregg Ruth has some amazing options to choose from. This incredible spiral diamond pendant features 1.96cts of dazzling diamonds and would catch anyone (and everyone’s) eye.

3

Another possibility with a similar refined look, but in a different shape (and definitely not lacking in sparkle!), is this diamond pendant from the Gregg Ruth Asher Collection. This incredible necklace features 0.73cts of diamonds.

4

Also, don’t be afraid to mix masculine with more feminine pieces. A chunky chain can make your more delicate accessories pop even more. And what could be more delicate than some adorable baby footprints? Or maybe a pawprint?

6 Both necklaces, designed by Monica Rich Kosann, come on a 30” diamond-cut chain and feature white sapphires.

How many gold hoops do you think you have packed away in your jewelry box? One….two…ten?!  No matter how many or few you may have, this is the season to bring them out of hiding and make a statement. If you are looking to add some new ones to your collection, Alor has some great choices to fit any style or budget.

This classic pair is made with 18 karat yellow gold and puts a small twist on the classic gold hoop.

7

Or for a look that is a little bolder, this pair of hoops features 0.10cts of diamonds.

8

If you are loving the layered look, you don’t have to stop at your necklaces. By wearing these little numbers you will immediately add a whole new level to your style with one pair of earrings – and some subtle sparkle as well with 0.16cts of diamonds.

9

A few weeks ago we looked into the history, legends and lore of cocktail rings. Well, this season it is time to up the ante a little more with statement rings meant to stack. Go ahead and throw a hand party and invite all of your favorite rings of different shapes and sizes. Just be sure to keep the rest of your look simple so your hands can really steal the spotlight (and don’t forget about that manicure!). If your ring guest list is looking a little lean, we have some great choices to bring some new life to the party.

This Masai yellow and white gold five strand ring has a stackable look all its own. It is made with five strands of interwoven 18 karat white and yellow gold and gives you the look of multiple rings all in one!

10 If you are yearning for something a little “extra,” this beauty by Marco Bicego could be just what you had in mind. This unique Goa ring is made with seven rows of 18 karat yellow gold, and 0.41cts of diamonds.

11

 

If you want something a little more unexpected and with a little more edge, this white gold ring by Alor strikes the perfect balance. A part of the Classique collection, this stainless steel fashion ring is made with 18 karate white gold cable, featuring 0.08cts of round diamonds.

Everyone has their favorite go-to pieces, despite how many you may have in your drawer or jewelry box. While always reaching for your tried and true pieces makes things easier, hopefully these tips on reviving those classic looks – with maybe some new pieces thrown in – will give all your must have jewelry a fresher look.
