Jewelry Wedding Ideas

  • Before you and your significant other swap rings in front of your guests, give them the attention they deserve with a photo shoot. Below are some ideas to help you get creative!

     

    1. Invitation Only

    Place your wedding rings on your wedding invitations, and focus in on the month of your nuptials. Frame the photograph for a cute momento to cherish for years to come.

    2. Naturally Rustic

    Hang the bands off of a small branch, or etch a design into a piece of wood for a more rustic and natural photograph. 

    3. Fruity Fun

    Add some bright colors to your ring photos by placing them on fruits like grapes or lemons. Just about any fruit will add a pop of personality to the picture! 

    4. If the Shoe Fits

    A picture-perfect way to show off your bridal stilettos and gorgeous gems at the same time. We recommend shooting this before your walk down the aisle in case your heels get dirty.

    5. Beachin'

    If you're exchanging vows by the water, grab some seashells for a festive photo op. Not by the beach but still feeling inspired? These decor elements definitely say summer wedding, so go for it anyways. 

    6. Flourishing Flowers

    What a more beautiful way to display your wedding rings than by using flowers as the backdrop? Whether you place them on the stem or at the center of the petals, the pictures are sure to exude romance! 

    7. Extra! Extra!

    Read all about it! Pick up the local paper on the day of your wedding and use it as a fun backdrop for your ring shot! Make sure the date is clearly visible. 

    8. A Novel Idea

    If you and your significant other are self-proclaimed bookworms (or if you just love book decor), then this is the perfect photo backdrop for you.

    Trying to come up with the perfect bridal gift for your wedding party? Why not create "something blue" for them with this easy DIY earring tutorial? These would be a simple, sophisticated bridal earring option too.

    Here's how to make your own "something blue" dangle earrings in about 15 minutes.

    Materials:

    Earring hooks (pair) Geometric metal components (pair) Top-drilled teardrop beads (pair) 24-gauge wire (10+ inches) Flat-nosed pliers Round-nosed pliers Wire nippers

    How To:

    1. Pass the wire through the bead.  Make sure there is at least 2" of tail on one side.  You'll need this side to make the first wrap around the other end of the wire.

    2. Bend both sides of the wire upwards, following the sides of the bead.  The wire should cross over itself at the top of the bead.

    3. Where the wire crosses over itself, use the flat-nosed pliers to bend the longer piece of wire so that it points straight up from the top of the bead.

    4. Take the shorter piece of the wire and wrap it around the longer piece of wire twice.  Use the wire nippers to trim the rest of the short wire off.  If necessary, use the round-nosed pliers to tamp down any sharp edges on the clipped end.

    5. Wrap the longer wire around one side of the round-nosed pliers to create a loop in the wire.

    Now wrap the wire twice around the first wire that you wrapped. Like before, use the wire nippers to trim the rest of the wire off and use the round-nosed pliers to tamp down any sharp edges.

    6. Using the flat-nosed pliers, open the earring hook.

    Add the circle component and the wire wrapped bead and close the hook.

    7. Repeat these steps for the second earring and you're all done!

    Beautiful!

  • Now that you're engaged, it's important you learn how to take care of your ring. Here's how. (expert advice)     photo by Todd Rafakovitch   When it comes to engagement ring care, you'd be surprised how many women overlook the importance of ring upkeep. Just imagine – you are faithfully brandishing your ring on a daily basis with all of the everyday wear and tear that comes with your regular activities.

    Whether you're scrubbing caked on grease from last night's dinner or planting seeds in your garden, chances are your engagement ring has been right along for the ride. In order to rid your precious ring of unwanted dust, dirt, and yes…dead skin particles that have come in contact with your ring, commit to memory the following engagement ring care tips:

    Cleaning: For diamond engagement ring care, simply soak in warm water for at least 30 minutes using a liquid detergent. Another method for engagement ring care regarding diamond settings involves soaking your ring in a solution consisting of 50 parts ammonia and 50 parts cool water. Once out of the solution, use a soft brush to tap the front and back of the ring, in hopes of loosening any dirt. Rinse again in the solution, and then pat dry.

    Wedding Ring Prongs: Engagement ring care also means that you should treat ring prongs to a bit of tender loving care. Over time, they can become weakened, bent or loose. Check your stone by holding it up to your ear and slightly tapping it. A loose stone will produce a slight rattling sound. To prevent loss of your stone, have a trusted jeweler inspect your engagement ring, provide a professional cleaning, and look over your prongs.

    Storage: When not wearing your diamond engagement ring, carefully store in a separate jewelry case or individually lined compartment, which keeps diamonds from rubbing against other pieces of jewelry. This can produce a scratch.

    Protection: If you engage in hard labor on a routine basis, follow the important engagement ring care tip of simply taking off your ring when doing activities, such as operating heavy machinery or construction work. This will help avoid breaks, splits, cracks, and looseness. Keep in mind that even digging in the ground while gardening can cause damage to an engagement ring – there's a lot of rocks hidden in the dirt!
