Wedding Bands That Rock…

with 5 comments

…Craving Some Really Good Metal?

Getting married soon and in the market for some fabulous wedding bands?  Visit www.superiorweddingrings.com for an array of unique styles in different metals, including platinum, white gold, yellow gold, titaniumtungsten and palladium!  Take a look at a few of my favorites… 

 

 The following are some facts about the wedding bands from www.superiorweddingrings.com, to help you before you begin your ring shopping:

Tungsten

It’s virtually scratch resistant, by far the hardest metal they carry.  It’s 10 times stronger than 14k gold and 4 times harder than platinum.  They have a lifetime warranty on all of their tungsten and can also do laser engraving on them!

Platinum

This is an extremely rare, yet pure metal.  It is only found in a few places and is more rare then gold.  It’ll never fade or blemish and is made of PT950 platinum.

Gold

They offer three different karats ~ 10k, 14k, 18k in yellow and white gold.

Palladium 

Is extracted at the same time as platinum.  One of the whitest metals out there.

My sister and her fiance got their Tungsten Rings from SuperiorWeddingRings.com and love them.  When they showed me the set, I was quite impressed…they were not only stylish and of great quality, but they were really affordable too.  Seriously, the rings they got are awesome! 

So deario cheerios, if you’re looking for a cool pair of wedding bands, be sure to visit their site.  They offer a huge selection for all different budgets…I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Thoughtful, Inspiring & Affordable Bridesmaid Gifts…

with 3 comments

…To Inspire!

Sometimes you come across something and you can’t take your eyes off of it.  It inspires you, makes you feel good and brightens your day.  That’s what happened when I found these lovely copper creations created by Etsy seller JeanSkipper.  If these could have such an effect on someone by just looking at them, imagine the effect it would have on someone who actually receives one!

I believe these would make excellent bridesmaid gifts as they’re affordable and you can even personalize them with your very own sayings.  Now that’s a sweet deal!  The options are limitless in her shop, so be sure to stop on by.  You can see these and more by clicking HERE, or check out her blog by clicking HERE.  Enjoy!

…With Lovely Little Things!

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas right now, but soon it’ll be my birthday and also something else exciting!  Come January 17th, when I turn the big 30 twenty-ten, artist Elsa Mora will be reopening her Etsy shop.  What a great birthday surprise!  I’m hoping she’ll share some of her gorgeous jewelry and paper cutting artwork, such as the work shown below, in her upcoming shop…

Eternal Love Turned Glam…

with one comment

…And Soared Right Into My Heart!

Ok, so I’m not writing a romance novel here, however this jewelry is most definitely glamorous and very romantic!  In chinese tradition, a pair of sparrows represent eternal love as the pair will live together until their partner dies.  Sparrows are also known to symbolize true love, dedication and trust…so do welcome this lovely little bird into your lives!

Wear one of these with your wedding ensemble if you’re looking for something a little outside the box! Or, instead, pair with a fab outfit for your bridal shower, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner…to show off your heart soaring in love

 Valera London Glam Sparrow Necklace

Raven London Glam Brass Bird Bracelet:

Niki London Glam Red Flower Sparrow Bird Necklace:

All of these pieces are from the London Glam collection by Etsy seller Voleur De Bijoux, however be sure to check out her other heart-stopping collections including Venetian, Regency, Parisian, MataHari, BohoChic, Aristocrat and Americana.  Live in love!
