Finding Great Jewelry

When I started thinking more seriously about heading into the professional realm, I realized that I needed to update my jewelry. I had been wearing fun costume jewelry for years, but it wasn't resonating with the people that I worked with or my clients. It was really frustrating, so I decided to head shopping to update my collection. It was amazing to see how big of a difference a nice new necklace and some conservative earrings made. This website is all about finding great jewelry that fits within your budget and your wardrobe. Check out this blog for more information.

Handmade Wedding Ring Ideas


If you're looking for a unique way to showcase your love and dedication for your new spouse, consider purchasing handmade wedding rings, rather than traditional versions. If you're ordering the rings from a specialty retailer, do it as soon as possible to ensure that the rings will be ready on your big day.

Handmade wedding rings are available in a wide range of styles, and some retailers will allow you to completely customize your design. If you're undecided whether you want a handmade or traditional ring, you can combine elements of each. For instance, incorporate diamonds into a handmade gold or silver band. 

No matter what your wedding budget is, you'll be able to find handmade rings that won't make you stray off course. You can choose specific details, such as the types of metals and gemstones you use, to stay on budget. 

Exchanging handmade rings on your wedding day will give the tradition a more personalized touch than going the typical jewelry shop route. When picking out the perfect ring for your partner, use their personal preferences, favorite colors, and even their birthstones, such as sapphires for December and opal for October babies, as inspiration. 

Here are some handmade wedding ring ideas to get you started:

1. Wood Wedding Rings 

If you and your partner have casual styles and prefer a more rustic look, consider matching wooden wedding bands. They're made from a variety of woods, such as oak or maple, and have either a natural matte finish or are coated with veneer for a shine. 

You can also incorporate different gemstones, including diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, into the bands for a pop of color and glamour. Some even feature colorful resin coatings in a variety of creative designs. 

2. Brushed and Etched Metals 

For a casually elegant look, opt for brushed metal bands in either one or two metals, such as yellow and white gold. You can request gemstones of your choice to be inlaid into the metal for a one-of-kind appearance. Customize the band using a mix of your birthstones as a sentimental touch.

As another customized option, you can have the bands etched with meaningful symbols, numbers, or words. You can have the etchings on either the outside or inside of the bands, or a combination of both.

If you're on a budget, consider using stones with a lower price point, such as citrine, garnets, and lab-created opals.
