The 1920's Antique Bride

Muted notes of Louis Armstrong can be heard trumpeting your slow walk down the aisle, father's arm linked with yours at the elbows.  There are tuxes with shiny lapels for rows upon rows, and bubbling champagne fountains with tiers that flow.  An Antique bride favors the understated opulence that vintage engagement rings can provide, combined with the strength of platinum and diamonds cut in the famous styles of yesteryear- most notably Asschers, Old Miners and Old Europeans.  Their color may be a touch warm, but isn't that just grand on a frosty winter's wedding night?

The Blushing Bride

For the doe-eyed sweetheart amongst us who favors rose gold hues to match her icicle kissed cheeks, this winter's Blushing Bride favors petite diamond pave halo's with modest bands.  For a classic look, try Mark Patterson's round brilliant setting intended for sparkling white center stones.  For a more alternative version, Anne Sportun's champagne pear shape is just one partridge short of perfection.  Those who love naturally inspired motifs will swoon for a stack with Cathy Waterman's platinum side leaf band, instantly transforming your diamond ring into a bud ready to bloom in time for Spring.

The Modern Vintage Bride How to know if you're a Modern Vintage Bride by answering a few simple questions:
  1. Do your table arrangements feature mercury glass hurricanes and pillar candles surrounded by magnolia leaves and white freesias?
  2. Did you letter-press your invitations with hand drawn calligraphy and metallic ink?
  3. Does your wedding dress have pockets?
  4. If your wedding dress does not have pockets, are your shoes are blue?
Anne Sportun reimagines the vintage bride with thoughtful modern flair as observed in brushed bands, milgrained bezels and plenty of pave.  Mixed metals play up a graduated diamond halo, a mock emerald shaped setting nods to the art deco movement with subtle, delineated grace.

The Golden Bride But soft, what light... 20 karat gold casts upon a sun-missed skintone.  Yellow gold's glow stands out amidst the frozen temperatures of the season.  Like a crackling fire fogging up the window panes, these resplendent settings warm up champagne diamonds, and even the misty shimmering grays.  Rose cut stones and hammered metal speak to ancient gold-smithing techniques perfected by Caroline Ellen and Cathy Waterman.  These styles prove that yellow gold engagement is not an outdated remnant of forgotten decades past, but an artisanal alternative to the tradtional platinum and white settings we've come to expect so much.

The Simplistic Bride, The Princess Bride and The Avant Guarde Bride Behold, if the moon was splintered into a thousand sparkling shards and gravity contained it within a single, round stone.  A'int no shame in a traditional, brilliant cut diamond ring.  No fuss for a basic bezel.  Classic femme's opt for a pave diamond halo and side stones.  The new guard is geometric and futuristic with a milgrain throwback to eras gone by.
