Wedding Bands = What’s OLD is NEW Again
I was surfing around the web yesterday, just perusing some bridal blogs. In my wanderings, I came across some gorgeous vintage bands. Maybe I thought they were so gorgeous because not only did I opt for a vintage engagement ring from the 50’s when I was married years ago, but the “things of yesterday” are a huge influence for me. Surely, my vintage jewelry collection and my recent Pinterest boards of old and new wedding bands are proof.
That is why I get so excited to work with brides-to-be, especially those who want to recreate something with an heirloom or vintage feel (Grooms, I love working with you too but let’s face it, you are never as excited as your bride is about the jewelry).
Right now, I am working with a bride-to-be for her September wedding to create a gorgeous and unique engraved wedding band. “Wheat” or “Arrow” style engraving, similar to the style on the ring below, is an “old” world style of engraving. I just love bringing a vintage details into my pieces.
It’s no secret that so much of my work is influenced by antique and estate jewelry. Several months ago, I created this Art Deco inspired band. The piece is a perfect accompaniment to match the bride-to-be’s “real” Art Deco emerald and diamond engagement ring for her June wedding.
It would be remiss if I didn’t include the grooms here, as well. The most modern and best-selling of my wedding bands are my hammered bands. Traditionally, a 6mm width is the best size for a guy. However, I have designed as thin as 4 mm and as wide as 8 mm, so it really comes down to personal preference. I love the hammered bands because they truly get better with age, just like vintage rings.

I am a huge fan of vintage and I really love your designs, especially your wheat and arrow design above, I have been hunting for a few months for the perfect ring. I am also looking at a simple art deco piece like the sondra style: http://www.brilliantearth.com/art-deco-engagement-rings/
