Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Oh Valentine's Day! We love any excuse to celebrate love!

You certainly don't need to give a material gift to show someone you love them. But, if you're in the market, here are some of our favorite jewelry gift ideas (because I love jewelry - oh and because diamonds are a girl's best friend.)

These pieces are unique, have tons of personality and are of the highest quality. Feel free to drop hints, ladies!

You know I'm a sucker for antique stones! These old cut stones are bead set in platinum octagon plates - a gorgeous and unique shape. The fine milgrain along the edges of the plates is a lovely detail. Jewels by Erica Grace is owned and operated by two ladies (Erica and Grace) who are experts in old stones and extremely reputable. Let us know if you want to be introduced!

This silver cuff bracelet is constructed in the classic Victorian style popular during that era. It is sweetly engraved in a simple floral design. I love substantial pieces and you could wear this special cuff every day, and dress it up or down.


(49% off!)

Rose gold plated silver earrings with a hammered disc and faceted moonstones. I love how these are sweet and edgy at the same time. Can be worn day or night!

(price is for setting only, select diamond from BG's diamond inventory)

 
Hand-made bezel pendant with 16" fine cable chain for cushion cut diamonds. I adore bezels and you don't see them paired with cushion cut stones every day! Brian Gavin's craftsmanship is exceptional.

Vintage Fashion Expo: 1920's Dresses & Animal Jewelry

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Sunday we went to the Vintage Fashion Expo in SF and saw a huge array of eclectic pieces. We couldn’t help but think of our brides when we browsed Decades of Fashion's  collection. They carry gorgeous delicately hand-sewn 1920’s dresses by the same designers who did costume design for Oscar-winning film “The Artist” and upcoming film “The Great Gatsby”. You can enjoy elegance and comfort in one of these – they all have elastic waists so you can actually breathe and eat! Have a second piece of cake! 

Here's a sampling of what we saw:



My weak camera phone does the dresses no justice, but visit Decades of Fashion in SF to see some amazing options for your wedding, after party, or just for fun! You can make an entire day out of browsing their collection of clothing, hats, shoes, and bags. 


Seeing their lovely goods inspired us to share some other 1920's inspired looks we've been seeing around:

I of course got distracted by some adorably precious animal jewelry as well:



Animal shaped things! Sigh~ I have an addiction. Hope your Tuesdays are sweet & strong!
