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.





Drop It Like It’s Hot -The Drop Hoop Earring Heats Things Up!

Hoop earrings have been around for a long time.  Wildly popular in the 1960’s, thick hoop earrings in day-glo color were a groovy accessory for the “mod” fashion ensembles of the time.  Even the drop hoop existed then, usually as a plastic hoop that thickened towards the bottom and was suspended from a plastic button. Ah memories….

Today’s drop hoop interpretation is a horse of a different color. Our drop hoops are fun and frisky, but their restrained color palettes and precious materials make them an elegant and timeless addition to your jewelry  collection.

Spiraling Out of Control

Let’s start with these White Stainless Chandelier Earrings from Alor’s Noir collection.  A series of stainless steel and black cable hoops dotted with round diamonds almost form a spiral as they graduate in size from small to large.  Strikingly different, they go from day to evening with ease. Fun and hip, they work well for the modern businesswoman, the boho chic, and add evening elegance to any outfit.

We are also loving these Dove’s Diamond Hoop Earrings. White, cognac, and black diamonds ornament a slender hoop of 18 karat rose gold for a look that is thoroughly innovative and leaves the 1960’s in the dust (where it belongs!) You could make these earrings your statement piece and never regret the choice. Fashionistas take note –  these ARE the ones.


Nobody Does It Better

Once again, Ivanka Trump proves that nobody does it better!  These 18 karat yellow gold diamond drop earrings bear her unmistakable stamp. Interpreted with architectural brilliance, these pear-shaped hoops are at once intimately familiar and like nothing you’ve ever seen before. They speak volumes about the taste and style of the wearer, without uttering a single word. Bravissimo!

And Now for Something Completely Different…

Agora means “gathering place” in Greek. The ancient agora in Athens was the center of athletics, artistry, spirituality and politics. Everyone who was anyone gathered in the agora. These Hera Agora Drop Earrings in sterling silver and 18 karat rose gold with diamonds have all that is necessary to make you the center of everyone’s focus.  Three dropped leaf-shaped hoops in silver, rose and charcoal are soft, yet edgy. Feminine, but focused.  They say “the world is your apple, take a bite!”

Our advice?  Don’t drop the ball, drop the hoop!  Earrings are the best way to draw attention to the face. Lovely eyes, lovely lips, a well-shaped ear, the right earrings can highlight all your special beauty. A dropped hoop will make you feel and look youthful and sexy.  Pick a pair that highlights your individuality and you’ll be too hot to handle!


Silver & Gold, Mixing Metals (Not Metaphorically)

To say that the Met Gala is a fashion forward affair is putting it mildly. The gala is often the first venue to alert the public to new style trends, and this year was no exception. This May’s technology theme launched a lot of futuristic new looks, with many of the “celebrati” flashing metallics for high impact.  Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford and numerous others sparkled and shone on the red carpet.  Nor did they limit themselves to a single metal, rather, the silver and gold celebration was a kaleidoscope worthy of a Klimt painting.

It should come as no surprise then, that jewelry designers have also been embracing this trend; mixing yellow gold with silver-toned metals like platinum, white gold, silver and steel. The effect is lustrous, modern and infinitely wearable.


Alor Classique Multicolor Bangle

Take, for example, this Alor Classique Multicolor Bangle. Wrought in 18 karat gold with three shades of stainless steel, the effect is luminous and radiant.  This bangle flatters every skin tone and draws all other jewelry into shining harmony. It will look gorgeous on the sleeve of your favorite winter white sweater and equally beautiful on your tanned wrist in your favorite poolside ensemble.  Truly a bracelet for all seasons.


Ivanka Trump has shown more than once that her natural design talent produces jewelry worthy of the spotlight. These classical Ivanka Trump Diamond Earrings reflect beauty and grace in 18 karat yellow gold with 0.73cts of round brilliant diamonds. The clean lines are both modern and reminiscent of the great art deco era. Silver and Gold has never looked so sophisticated.



Finding your wedding band a little ho hum these days? Slip on this set of Three Diamond Eternity Bands custom created by none other than our own George Press. Sold together, or separately, the center band is platinum set with 3.94cts of round brilliant diamonds. Flanking it are two 18 karat yellow gold bands each set with 3.06cts of fine white and champagne round diamonds. So beautiful, you’ll vow to wear it forever!



Finally, Alor sets the pace yet again with this Diamond Ring in 18 karat white gold and stainless steel with a diamond buckle. So refreshing and contemporary, this ring appeals to women of all ages and styles. It makes a great gift for graduations, anniversaries, promotions and the always popular self-appreciation. (Wink!)


The Silver and Gold trolley has slowed down just for you so jump aboard! We know you’ll enjoy the ride.  Pick out some mixed metal favorites and ring the bell- because you’ll be riding the fashion train with the stars!


A Bevy of Bangles!

Bangles have been traditional for way too long. But surprise! At last there is a delightful alternative to the familiar, ring-shaped bracelet.  Cast your eyes upon these beauties that are breaking all the rules.


Fashionistas are fascinated with open-ended bangles this fall.  Especially coveted are bangles that add sparkle to the neutrals that Fall outfits bring, such as this George Press Custom Bangle. This three row overlapping diamond bangle is a great piece for this transition season, as the versatility of diamonds works extremely well with winter outfits!  Three Row Overlapping Diamond Bangle

This stunning 18 karat white gold bangle features 2.21cts of sparkling diamonds.

Working 9 to 5? You can still flash a little bling at your wrist! This stunning Bronze Stainless Steel with Brown Stingray and mixed color and white diamonds cuff from Alor is the ultimate power bracelet. Clap on this bracelet and watch the glass ceiling disappear!  Better yet, take this look into evening with ease, it goes with everything, especially a promotion!

Stingray Alor Brown

Absolutely stunning bangle from Alor’s Petra collection in 18 karat Gold, Stainless Steel, Bronze Stainless Steel with Brown Stingray and 0.38 mixed color Diamonds and 0.17 carats of White Diamonds.



Looking for something truly unusual?  Something that adorns a slender wrist in a little black dress with the utmost taste and just a touch of restraint?  Try this Hera Palmera Leaf Bangle in sterling silver and 18 karat rose gold with a swish of diamonds.  It’s your moment, enjoy it!


Sterling silver and 18 karat rose gold Hera Palmera leaf bangle features 0.08cts of diamonds.




A true connoisseur knows how to combine for maximum impact!  We love these two together…or even three or four!  Marco Bicego presents these African Gold Kissing and Bypass bangles in 18 karat hand-engraved gold. Splash a jangle of these bangles on and raise your champagne glass for a toast. “To fabulousness!  Hear! Hear!”

A contemporary twist on the classic bangle, Africa “kissing” bangle by Marco Bicego in 18 karat hand-engraved gold.
