debra setWe did a feature on Debra Moreland’s cake jewelry a few weeks back after we got back from Bridal Week in New York City, and now it’s time to focus in on her spectacular bridal jewelry. As you can see, she brought quite a bit with her to the New York Bridal Market (Pier 92), and we certainly weren’t complaining.

PARIS is an exquisite collection of wearable pieces that are the perfect finishing touch to any bride’s outfit, and it’s quite extensive. Moreland is a master of it all, from elegant hair jewelry (because there’s no other way to describe these pieces as other than jewelry for your hair), to accessories such as necklaces, brooches, and bracelets.

When we got up close, it was apparent that all of her classic (yet modern) pieces were made with extreme care, each eye-catching detail carefully thought … [read more]

Moonstones & Diamonds

moonstone braceletThere’s just something about the combination of moonstones and diamonds in this bracelet that makes the day a little brighter. Everything sort of just fades away next to the sparkle of the diamonds and the soft blue glow of the moonstones. And when they hit the light just right? Wow.

Set in 18k white gold, this mesmerizing bracelet bends with you, which I always find to be important. There’s nothing like wearing something that feels clunky and weird when you’re trying to simply do things in life like type, write- you know, functionality.

This beautiful bracelet was created by Joyce Groussman Estate & Fine Jewelry out of Scottsdale, AZ, a contemporary piece with no price listed. Interested? Contact them before we do. It’s perfect for your wedding day!

Cheryl King Couture and Wedding Story Writer are practically neighbors, both living in the Raleigh, NC area, yet New York Bridal Market always serves as the place for us to catch up and have a glass or two of wine, while browsing through Cheryl’s fabulous latest pieces. Cheryl’s friend, Sherry, joins her in New York every year, helping her set up and meeting with clients and press, but also offering a comfortable place to rest one’s feet during the hustle and bustle of activity during New York’s Bridal Market.

A Love Note in a Ring from 1790

When I stumbled across this beautiful piece of jewelry, I knew I had to share it with you. This sentimental piece is from circa 1790, according to the actual handwriting on the ring and says in French, “For my Sophie You are always my little darling 1790.” One can only imagine the woman wearing this ring and the man who held her so close to his heart.  Was she a wife?  A lover? A grown daughter or treasured sister? We will never know for sure, but their adoration has stood the test of time, outliving them and becoming a mystery.

Winter Wedding

We are so much in love with “Long Francine” gown by Temperley Bridal of London, accompanied by a divine fox fur trimmed cape from Harrod’s. What a great combination for a winter wedding, the most neglected season of the year! The Penny Preville drop earrings is a purchase I plan to make ASAP. Talk about jewelry lust, pure and simple! In fact, they deserve a feature of their own, so stay tuned!
