A Simple Shade

Friday, July 29th, 2016

This week we’re going to keep it simple. Instead of matching up our jewelry with extravagant gowns full of color and frills, we’re going to show you how a little bit of colorful sparkle can do wonders for a simple dress!

First up is our Ruby Bracelet. This classic gold bracelet is surrounded by diamonds and rubies fit for a queen! We matched it with an elegant and simple Lela Rose mermaid gown. This dress gives off an air of sophistication that works perfectly with this deep colored bracelet.
The second match we’ve created is our blue sapphire Dryden Bracelet with a simple southern wedding dress. This dress is full of southern charm with its lace design on top and a flowing white skirt. The blue of the Dryden Bracelet just adds more romantic charm to the look!
Lastly, we have a beautiful Justin Alexander cap sleeve gown that we paired with our Alicia Bracelet. This genuine Opal bracelet is wrapped with real gold to create a simple, elegant look. Opal is the stone of hope and innocence and we think it looks stunning with a simple cap sleeve gown!
At Adorn.com, we have all sorts of colorful jewelry for any bridal look. Whether you’re going for an extravagant gown full of radiant color or a simple white gown that is full of elegance, we have plenty of real diamond jewelry for every bride’s needs!

Barn Bride

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Rustic WeddingBarn weddings have never been more popular than right now and summer is the perfect time for them! Three things to keep in mind for your rustic barn wedding are lots of flowers, plenty of wooden elements, and the perfect dress. The key to a picture perfect rustic wedding is sticking flowers wherever you can. Pick out plenty of options and add them into your centerpieces, down the aisle, and anywhere in between. Obviously, a wedding wouldn’t be rustic without its wooden elements: A cute little sign, lots of wooden chairs for your guests, and of course, the wooden barn of your dreams! Lastly, make sure you’ve got the perfect dress. We’ve picked out one that perfectly combines that rustic feel with a touch of modern design. By pairing the dress with our Isabella Hair Pin and Materson Bracelet, you get the perfect touch of sparkle on your rustic wedding day!

Adorning Her Daughters with Diamonds

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

One of the things we love most about working here at Adorn is meeting the wonderful people who cross our path.  We had the pleasure recently of working with a mom whose heart is in the right place and could teach us all a thing or two.

We first met Cheryl when she rented our Brent necklace and Brent earrings for someone special – no, not her daughter, but her soon to be daughter-in-law! What a great lesson this Mom has for the rest of us that she wanted to do something special for her daughter-in-law on her wedding day and set the positive tone for their future relationship. 

Our bias aside, we thought renting her daughter-in-law diamond jewelry for the wedding was a special, one-time gift she could provide her new family member at an important time in her daughter-in-law’s life. Most brides don’t have the budget to purchase real diamond jewelry, especially if she wants something with a little more bling. We’re betting Cheryl’s gift of an Adorn jewelery rental was well received.

Cheryl’s selection of our Brent earrings and Brent necklace were the perfect accessories for her daughter-in-law, who looked beautiful in a strapless, classic wedding gown. The Brent necklace is a unique diamond and pearl drop necklace that offers plenty of sparkle for the bride seeking the glamour and allure only real diamonds can offer. Retailing for $16,250, the Brent necklace rents for $190. Offering the best of both worlds, the coordinating Brent earrings combine the same emerald shape diamonds and pearl combination for a stunning, classic look. The Brent earrings retail for $2,495 and can be rented from Adorn for an affordable $85.

As you can see from the photo with her bridesmaids, the choice of a pearl and diamond jewelry set by the bride, and the pearl necklaces worn by the bridesmaids, provided continuity and a coordinated look for the wedding party.

Here’s how Cheryl describes her experience with Adorn, in her own words:

“The first time I used Adorn, I rented a necklace and earrings for my new daughter-in-law on her wedding day.  It was my special gift to her (and the perfect beginning to a new and wonderful relationship)!   The second time I used Adorn was for my daughter on her wedding day (10/22/11). Both times, the jewelry perfectly complimented the day! The process was super-easy and the staff at Adorn was very accommodating. “ – Cheryl L.

As Cheryl mentioned, she also turned to Adorn when it was her daughter’s turn to get married in October.  Our Hartley necklace and Hartley earrings were a great choice for her daughter, and didn’t detract from the embellishments on the bodice of her wedding dress, but added an additional dash of elegance. The necklace has a retail value of $9,300 and can be rented from Adorn for $180. The Hartley earrings have a retail value of $4,475 and can be rented for $120.

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.

Even The Weather Couldn’t Stop This Bride From Having Her Dream Wedding

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Sometimes, there’s no getting around it; the weather is just not going to cooperate for your wedding day. For outdoor weddings, a backup plan is a must. But, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the mood you wanted to create for your wedding.  See how Adorn client Jill, and her husband, tied the knot amid a romantic setting shaped by the ambience of candlelight.

Jill and her husband chose to have their wedding and reception at Lake Placid Golf Club. Although the rain did alter their plans somewhat, the one thing that wasn’t affected was the fact that Jill made a beautiful bride!  Jill’s gorgeous dress was a strapless, wrapped gown with a jeweled bustline, and fur wrap to complete the look.

Jill chose Adorn’s Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet to complement her embellished bodice for a perfectly stunning mix of bling and glamour. With her hair in an updo, Jill needed that extra something that our Lockwood earrings could provide in order to add the right amount of sparkle, focal point, and sophistication that was embodied in her choice of gown. In lieu of a necklace that would detract from her dress, Jill opted for our Chadwick bracelet, which makes a great accompaniment to our Lockwood earrings in terms of style, detail, and glamour.

In regards to her experience renting her diamond jewelry from Adorn for her wedding day, Jill had this to say:

“The jewelry was absolutely stunning; even better in person! It looked brand new and was perfectly packaged. The service I received was impeccable. I received the package overnight and returning the items was so simple. I can’t wait to use Adorn again for a future event – love Adorn!” – Jill

Not only did Jill provide continuity throughout her dress and accessories with a little bling, she and her husband enjoyed a wedding cake that included rhinestone flowers and a jeweled ribbon draped around the cake! Now, that’s having your cake and eating it too!

Adorn would like to thank Jill and her photographer, Paul Reynolds of Burlington, Vermont, for sharing these gorgeous pictures with our Adorn clients. We really enjoyed the photos of the couple with umbrellas overhead to show that the weather was not going to prevent this couple from having their dream wedding!

To help them achieve their dream wedding, Jill and her husband chose florist and decorator, David Michael Schmidt, of Renaissance Floral and Design to set the mood. The club’s darker than preferred paneling appeared to create some challenges at first, but the use of color and candlelight helped to overcome these obstacles to create gorgeous table settings and overall atmosphere.  See for yourself by visiting the Renaissance Floral and Design site, and get some ideas for your own wedding.

Popular Jewelry Styles and the Brides Who Wear Them

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Styles of jewelry that are popular really vary according to many factors – the bride’s personality, sense of style, formalness of the wedding itself, dress style, and wedding vision. Generally, however, we’ve noticed that a bride falls into one of three categories – the traditional bride looking for classic elegance, the more confident bride going for a red carpet look, and the bride with great fashion sense for whom the accessories take on greater importance.

This year, we’re seeing the more traditional bride opt for gowns with embellished, embroidered belts or a more detailed, embroidered and embellished bodice. Because of these beautiful details, we recommend, during our personal style consultations, that brides not choose overpowering jewelry with their gowns. We frequently recommend classic diamond studs or diamond drop earrings – our Middleton earrings are a perfect example. (The diamond drop Middleton earrings, which we rent for $160, retail for $8,250.) Our Danielson earrings (diamond studs) may seem a safe choice, but the diamonds do offer a sparkle quality that no other stone can, and that sparkle can’t be had with costume jewelry. It’s that sparkle that allows for diamond studs to be seen from afar.  Adorn’s Danielson Earrings rent for $150 and retail at over $5,900.

Brides that are more confident are going for that red carpet look and wanting to make a bigger impact with their jewelry, opting for a little more bling. A favorite pairing among brides in this group are our Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet. Our Lockwood earrings are big – and gorgeous – chandelier earrings that rent for $200 ($13,700 retail) and shout “glamour”. The Chadwick bracelet is a diamond cuff bracelet that is a great complement to the Lockwood earrings and are similar in style and sophistication (retail $24,750, rents for $250). Strapless dresses that define simple elegance are a combination when paired with the Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet. These brides are also exploring the use of colored gems.

From our most fashion sensitive brides, we’re seeing a lot of creativity. These brides don’t shop for jewelry, or other accessories such as veils, as a last minute to-do, they have a specific vision for their fashion statement on their wedding day and use each element, such as their jewelry selection, to complete the look. We’ve seen brides that fall in this category, reserving their jewelry selection prior to finding that perfect gown. A great example is one of our clients, Niurka, owner of Luli Meets Tulle, who really made a statement with her selection. (Niurka photo credit to Morgan Trinker Photography.) Niurka chose our Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet, but paired them with a retro bird cage veil for a throwback  look reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour.
