Rose Gold Jewelry

23 Jan

Rose gold or pink gold jewelry has gained much popularity over the past few years. So, what is rose gold? It is a warm, pink-toned metal that results when copper is alloyed with yellow gold. Soft and feminine, rose gold is all the rage and is still very much “in” according to celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss. Rose gold jewelry is still popping up on the hands of celebrities and it’s adorning the runways. Subtle and versatile, it mixes well with other metals and compliments nearly every skin tone. Seemingly a new trend, rose gold’s roots are in Russia. Also called Russian gold, rose gold was created when Czar Nicholas II ordered a necklace made to mimic the color of a scarf dropped by a princess at a ball. Who knew men paid that much attention to accessories? But, we’re glad he did or we wouldn’t have this beautiful pink-toned metal. If you want to browse more of this lovely hue, check out some of our favorite Adorn512 pieces, great for Valentine’s Day, Bridesmaids and Mother’s Day. Check out the Valentine’s Day gift section for a sweet selection of heart warming hearts in rose gold, gold and sterling silver!

Bridesmaid Gifts: Making it Personal While Keeping it Affordable

12 Apr

So, your wedding day is approaching rapidly and you’re looking for meaningful and affordable gifts for your wedding party? Wedding prep can seem like a planning frenzy. Here are some things to consider when selecting bridesmaid gifts.
How soon should I buy them?
There are no guidelines as to how soon, but keep in mind you’ll want to give them out at the rehearsal dinner or maybe even beforehand if a bridal luncheon or tea is on your agenda. As a general rule, purchase them one to three months in advance of the wedding.
How much should I spend?
When deciding what to spend on your bridal party, there are two things to consider; how much you are asking each person to spend on you, and how much your budget allows.  If each bridesmaid is covering travel costs, hotel, dress, shoes, wedding shower costs and bachelorette party, obviously you want to spend enough to let them know you appreciate all they’ve invested in your special day.  You don’t have to spend the same amount they’ve shelled out, but you might want to consider something in the $100-$150 range for that level of bridesmaid participation. On the other hand, if their expenditures are much less or you have a large bridal party and your budget doesn’t allow for over $1000 in bridesmaid gifts, there are many options for gifts in the $50 range that can be personalized so each bridal party member knows you recognize and appreciate her for the unique friend she is to you.
Add a wire-wrapped birthstone and charm to this hand stamped initial necklace to create a unique gift for each bridesmaid.

We’ve all been given bridesmaid gifts that we wear on the wedding day only and then pack away for 10 or more years. How do you avoid repeating the useless bridal gift cycle?  A gift card for a restaurant or spa is something most people will certainly use, however, it can seem impersonal. A personalized clutch or scarf can allow for an embroidered initial or possibly a meaningful quote.
Perhaps jewelry allows for the most personalization. When selecting jewelry, take some time to think deeply about your relationship with each individual and take her personality into consideration. Is she the outdoors type, a yogi, a tech geek or hard-core professional? Do you know her favorite color, her style, what type of music she enjoys? Are there any symbols or shapes you know she loves? A simple, everyday necklace can include a hand stamped initial and one or two special charms. Consider adding a wire-wrapped birthstone and a tiny clover or bird or a perfect circle to symbolize the ongoing nature of your friendship. Does your friend love the fact she’s a native Californian or Texan? Add her birthstone to a state necklace. Select a finish of rose gold, silver or gold, depending upon your friend’s style. If the gift reflects something personal about your relationship with each bridesmaid, you’ll feel as great giving the gift as they will feel receiving it.

this wrinkled gold engagement ring is made out of 18k gold with diamonds and ruby embedded in it.
I love to design all my jewelries with a bit of a twist and no doubt that this engagement ring is different.

This ring is part of a collection in which Orit Kanner created and designed items in a technique of carved wax in order to give it a look similar to the look of a paper that was wrinkled and then was opened again.
The upper part of the ring (in which the diamonds and the ruby are located) is in a size of 10*9 mm with 19 gemstones embedded within the ring- 10 diamonds and 9 ruby gemstones in a size of 1 mm.

Ring Width: 2.5-3mm
Ring thickness: 1.5 mm
