Summer is the time for spectacular weddings! And with every new wedding, we get to see more and more innovative ideas for our own and future weddings to come.
This week, we'll be looking into those engagement rings and wedding bands that are just perfect for any vintage-inspired summertime wedding or proposal.
While some brides-to-be prefer that their partners select their engagement ring on their own, other brides prefer to have a say in choosing their engagement ring style or setting. For those brides who want to be part of the engagement, we at Long Jewelers have chosen some vintage styles that are sure to please.
Long Jewelers' First Pick: Solitaire Pave Diamond Engagement Ring
There's no more sparkling sight than the gleam of a bride's eyes as she makes her way down the aisle, but we think that this solitaire engagement ring makes a close second.
This diamond solitaire ring (model #MES336-98) is by A. Jaffe and is a part of their exquisite Classics collection. While any of A. Jaffe's exemplary engagement rings are a dream come true, this particular engagement ring has the added bonus of featuring a channel pave style band, creating a truly blinding diamond experience.
Paired with a beautiful teacup wedding dress and a solitaire diamond engagement ring, such as this A. Jaffe selection, the bride will be the epitome of classic-meets-modern chic in the best way possible.
Long Jewelers' Second Pick: Emerald Cut Diamond Ring
Nothing says glamour, like a bold emerald cut diamond engagement ring. For those brides wishing to channel their inner classic Hollywood icon, emerald shaped diamonds are the epitome of the timeless style, elegance, and sophistication.
And who better to trust with a vintage bridal look than ArtCarved? Creating unforgettable bridal jewelry since 1850, ArtCarved's Velma Engagement Ring 31-V728GEW-E showcases stunning milgrain embellishments and a wonderful halo of diamonds to create an engagement rings that is truly one-of-a-kind.
More than just an engagement ring, putting together the perfect summer wedding requires finding the ideal wedding band for both bride and groom. At Long Jewelers we believe that a couple who shops together stays together, and are thrilled to offer an amazing selection of exceptional wedding band collections in both men's and women's styles.
Here are a few of our favorite wedding bands:
Long Jewelers' First Pick: Eternity Wedding Bands
No list of classic wedding looks is complete without the eternity band! Symbolizing a couple's endless love, eternity bands are great not only for weddings, but also for anniversaries.
If you think that an eternity band is right for you, check out our amazing selection of vintage and retro-inspired bands from the California-based designers of Tacori. For glamorous brides-to-be, check out the Tacori Ribbon collection for an unforgettable diamond eternity wedding band, such as the immaculate band pictured above (model #HT2528B).
Not to forget the happy groom, also from Tacori are men's eternity style bands, like the Sculpted Crescent ring above (model # 80-5D), which features an "endless" row of diamonds in placed in a stylish and masculine manner.
Long Jewelers' Second Pick: Channel Diamond Wedding Bands
Another great bridal jewelry idea for the classically-styled couple is channel-set diamond wedding bands. Subtle and remarkable, channel wedding bands - such as the handsome rings pictured above by Jeff Cooper are known for featuring gleaming, diamonds securely set in the metal of the band itself.
For grooms we suggest looking at Jeff Cooper's 14-karat white gold wedding band 3290, and for brides, check out the wedding band 3309B from the Jeff Cooper Heirloom collection as a gorgeous complement.
