A Rare Beauty, Yellow Diamonds Make a Comeback

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Yellow diamonds have always been a favorite around the Adorn office so we’re proud to see they’re finally getting their due. Their popularity is on the rise as the unique coloring of this rare diamond becomes more appreciated – and dare we say, a trend?

Sotheby’s auction house location in Geneva recently made headlines when it offered at auction the largest yellow diamond in the world. Going price? More than $10.9 million!  But you don’t have to be a millionaire to enjoy the beauty of the yellow diamond, as some of our Adorn clients are finding out. This past September, Amber looked sophisticated and elegant wearing a yellow diamond pairing from Adorn Brides for her wedding jewelry.

Of our two yellow diamond earrings available for brides to rent, Amber opted for our Crestwood earrings, shown here in her wedding photo. Retailing for nearly $15,000 and packed with charm, we consider it a steal for a rental price of $200.

A beautiful piece in its own right, Amber chose our Ashcroft pendant necklace which coordinated beautifully with the earrings she selected. Featuring a princess cut yellow diamond surrounded by white diamonds in a white gold setting, our Ashcroft necklace is one of our favorites and rents for $140.

Amber gave this testimonial about her experience with Adorn:

“What an amazing experience I had with Adorn! Everyone complimented my beautiful jewelry for the night and I couldn’t have felt more like a princess. Never would I have been able to wear such amazing yellow diamonds if it weren’t for Adorn!!  Thank you again so much for helping to make my day great!”          -       Amber, 9/10/11

For brides interested in our yellow diamond collection, be sure to also check out our Everett earrings. A yellow diamond drop earring surrounded by white diamonds, our Everett earrings rent for $150.

As you can see from her wedding photo, Amber did a great job incorporating yellow diamond jewelry into her wedding day. The yellow diamonds coordinated well with her overall wedding colors and a bouquet of yellow and gold flowers. The uniqueness and character of the yellow diamond jewelry really complemented the delicate, lace neckline of Amber’s wedding dress; it framed the pendant necklace beautifully and created a romantic look for Amber on her wedding day.

It’s All About the Dress

Saturday, November 5th, 2011
Congratulations to Randy Fenoli on his new book, “It’s All About the Dress:  Savvy Secrets, Priceless Advice, and Inspiring Stories to Help you Find ‘The One’”! The star of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, Randy also stars in Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bridal Bliss and Randy’s Top Ten. As Fashion Director for Kleinfeld Bridal, Randy personally sees over 15,000 brides each year, so his experience with brides is extensive.

It's All About The Dress

Photos used throughout the book are photos of real brides – in all ages and sizes. (Now, here’s an expert that gets women!)   Other topics covered include dress and wedding budgets, wedding accessories, and bridal party attire. Whether it’s in his role as Fashion Director of Kleinfeld Bridal or author of his new book, Randy’s goal is to make women feel her most beautiful on her special day, and this book will help brides do that.

“It’s All About the Dress” is full of great fashion advice for brides, including suggestions on flattering cuts, fabrics and styles for different body types. As he states in this interview on The Today Show (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/45149664/ns/today-books/t/randy-fenoli-explains-why-its-all-about-dress/ ), the book title was written in jest;  Fenoli stresses to brides that although the dress is symbolic of your personal style, its purpose is to reflect how the dress makes you feel – beautiful – on your most important of days.  We love Randy’s take on the traditional fashion advice women have received regarding body shape – throw out the pear shaped metaphors, women aren’t fruit!  He discusses this further in the book, under Rule #7.

 During The Today Show interview linked above, Randy presented a gown by Tara Keely (TK 2201) which retails for $1,925. The dress is an ivory, Alencon lace, A-line bridal gown with V-neckline, keyhole back and cap sleeves. It features a satin ribbon at the natural waistline with floral organza appliqué and chapel train. 

We completed the look for this beautiful gown with Adorn Brides’ dangle marquis diamond earrings, the Clemons earrings, an accessorizing piece which complements the overall look at an affordable rental price of $160. Our Clark bracelet finishes off the look; the Clark bracelet is an elegant and unique flower bracelet that beautifully incorporates 5 total carats of diamonds and rents for $190.   These pieces are classic and romantic. More importantly, we share Randy’s belief that on your wedding day, the focus should be on how your clothes and jewelry make you feel.  Our experience with brides who have chosen to wear real diamonds on their wedding day is a great example; it feels special to wear real diamond jewelry on your most special of days, and they lend authenticity, as well as glamour and elegance, that carry over into how you feel on the day you exchange “I do’s”.
