The holidays are the perfect time for bringing together family and friends for food, fun and fellowship. The cold, dark nights and warm, cozy firelight experienced during this time of year is also the perfect setting for a beautiful and festive wedding proposal.
If you’ve been thinking about popping the question to your significant other this holiday season, there’s really no more romantic time to ask someone one of the most important questions of your life. The glimmer of a beautiful diamond ring is the perfect counterpart to Mother Nature’s backdrop of frosted leaves and icy snow that give off their own natural brilliance and shine.
Fall means that it’s time for the first peak at the Spring 2015 collections. This season the clothes were paired with bold jewelry that made as much of a statement as the clothes did. Some of the highlights of the spring jewelry selections included metal jewelry, saturated, child friendly colors, gold, translucent crystal, gunmetal and numerous global influences in texture, style and color.
In a counter play to the reality TV world of Bridezillas and bigger-is-better weddings, some couples are opting for simple engagements that give a nod to times past with a ring of vintage, antique or estate heritage. Estate jewelry not only means owning a slice of history through a unique piece of jewelry, it’s also a way to purchase jewelry that’s ethically gained and economically friendly. In some cases this may be an heirloom piece of jewelry or a stone that’s passed down over many generations or perhaps it’s a piece that was found after many days browsing through antique stores and estate sales to find the perfect piece.
