Well- now that the invitations are in the mail... I've moved on. On to the next priority- the rings- of course!!
This was really hard for me. I have two very distinct sides - vintage and contemporary. Makes sense if you know what product I have in the shop. That said- finding the perfect ring was really a challenge. I already had a beautiful vintage style aquamarine ring given to me by mon amour last year for Christmas. (similar style shown above) so our search really focused on wedding bands.
I prowled the web, honed my style, found inspiration, met with several local jewelers and then finally found "THE ONE", at a lovely retail shop in Chicago!
"THE ONE!" ;)
I looked long and hard and thought I'd share some of the great websites and images I found along the way:
A great site that has incredibly well priced jewelry - some classic and very traditional and some beautifully contemporary.
A really unique concept using finger prints to create jewelry. This was our first runner up as a modern twist on a tradtional rings. Super nice guy, interesting concept but in the end, we wanted to support a local business and we just weren't comfortable making our ring purchase site unseen.
