We are crushing on our new engagement rings…I am madly in love with halo engagement rings after having made one for my own engagement ring. We have a heart shaped ring surrounded by a halo of sparkly delicate diamonds that we have dubbed our Clementine Halo Ring.
You may have one custom made in 18k yellow gold, 18K peach gold or 14K palladium white gold. The best part is that we offer a traditional diamond center stone or a more budget friendly, eco-conscious option of moissanite. Both are brilliant halo engagement rings and have their own unique characteristics. We also have a rainbow of sapphire center stones to choose from as well.
On the right is our Helena Ring Halo Ring which I am in love with. It is a very unique halo engagement ring that can be customized with all of the different stone options that we offer.
Here is sneak peak at our new engagement ring line called Rough Luxe. We wanted to create something unique for the bohemian bride.
One of our favorites is the Past, Present & Future ring which is set with three golden hearts. You may have the choice of diamond or moissanite stones in this ring. Moissanite is a lab grown white gem which was first discovered over 100 years ago when a meteor struck the earth. Their brilliance and fire is 2.4 times that of a diamond. Proven to be harder than a sapphire or a ruby and second only to a diamond, Moissanite is extremely resistant to scratching, breaking or chipping.
The best part is that when it is viewed side by side with a diamond, moissanite stones are typically indistinguishable. They make the perfect eco-friendly and conflict free alternative. A big plus is that they are also very affordable compared to diamonds.
You can check out more of our bridal and anniversary bands here. We are always adding more unique one of a kind alternative engagement rings.
We are proud to announce our new Bridal division which offers organic and unique engagement rings for the bohemian bride. Rough + Luxe Jewelry was born out of creating my own engagement ring and the many requests from customers for heirloom quality diamond & sapphire engagement rings, anniversary band and wedding bands.
You may view our unique, alternative Bridal and Engagement line on our website at Rough Luxe Jewelry.
These new beauties are coming soon…here is a sneak peak of our alternative engagement rings. Sapphire, diamonds & a deep buttery 18k gold give them the look of buried treasure. Perfect for the bohemian bride…Rough Luxe Jewelry
Crushing on this horseshoe ring I made for a pretty special client a few months ago…dreaming of making one for myself one day. It would also make an awesome alternative engagement ring for a cowgirl bride.
Ever since I got engaged and decided to make my own engagement ring…(after all how can a guy buy a ring for a jewelry designer…talk about pressure)…I have been wanting to add an engagement line to Island Cowgirl.
I have created a lot of commissioned bespoke pieces for clients over the last few years but it has always been a dream to do a proper line where clients can see exactly the ring they were getting instead of only a sketch. Continue reading →
Soooo…we have been thinking of doing a engagement ring line for quite some time…but our move to Nashville kind of interrupted that project.
We are finally settled…(as settled as we are going to be) and we have begun to play around with the new line… Continue reading →
It’s that time of the year again…when we pack up all of our jewelry…new designs and all and hit the trade shows. I just returned from AmericasMart Atlanta and it is always one of my favorites. Southern hospitality is their specialty. Continue reading →
How romantic…a beautiful article on one of the most flocked to spots for couples in the city of lovers, Paris! Such a unique and grand display of love, touched by couples from all over the world… one day I will most definitely go and add my own lock of love!
He is honest and valient. He has reverie & honor. He slays dragons. He is old fashioned. He always does the right thing…even when no one is looking. He is courageous and brave. Evertime I think I cannot love him more…I do.
Marrying him was, hands down, the smartest thing I ever did in my life. I could not have found a more perfect man for me if I had made him up myself. I am profoundly proud to be called his wife.
From our wedding vows that we wrote… “Real love has absolutely no pride. It does not ever end or change and there is no language that speaks against it. You are everything I ever wanted and more than I deserve. Being loved by you gives me strength and loving you gives me courage. I will pass my days within the sound of your voice…and my nights within the reach of your hand and no one shall come between us…”
Almost everything in our wedding was DIY, vintage or recycled from flea markets. This wedding was a labor of love.
My mother-in-law made my wedding dress from Alencon Lace that I bought from Paris. She also hand stitched 400 vintage doilys together to make the table runners. We spent a year collecting the doilys from local flea markets. She also made the bunting running down the aile from vintage hankies. My husband gave her MVP of the wedding.
The back drop of our ceremony was vintage lace and hand dyed silk ribbon that my friend Hannah makes. Don’t even get me started on how many Alice in Wonderland giant Paper flowers were littered around our living room for a month…Nigel kept hiding his bones in them! And my bridesmaid, Kristen from Soul Soup hand painted our aisle runner which said “love is bigger”…I cherish that.
This is my friend Katie. I met her years ago at the dog park. Our dogs grew old together…and over the years and through our early morning talks in our pajamas…we became friends.
Now you have to meet Katie to understand her wonderfully, wild spirit. Her laugh is contagious. She is crazy funny. And her smile lights up a room. She is fiercely loyal and eternally optimistic. Everyone loves Katie.
Katie & I have been through boyfriends, husbands, break ups, break downs and lost friendships. But she always held strong. She is one of the bravest souls I know. So when her roommate of 5 years and her boyfriend of 2 years simultaneously screwed her over both in the same week….she picked up & moved to San Diego. Ballsy. Her life was here. But off she went.
Well, Katie ended up meeting the love of her life by following her heart. And Katie is getting married to the man of her dreams.
Here is the ring I designed for her….A 2 carat, flawless emerald cut diamond set in platinum. A bit more contemporary than my normal designs…but she wanted something clean & simple. And Katie was getting what she wanted. She waited a long time for her prince charming and left a trail of frogs behind her…and she deserves only the best…
I cannot wait to dance at your wedding. I love you girl.
