Bracelets are the go-to accessory this year. Everyone is wearing a stack of bangles, cuffs or wide models with clasps. This bracelet was David Yurman’s very first design in 1983. It’s no surprise that it was an immediate success, and is still one of the world’s most beloved jewelry designs. It comes in a wide variety of sizes and you can finish it off with just about any gemstone.

Petite Wheaton Bracelet | Designer Jewelry Indianapolis

Top Picks & Stacking Tricks: Beverley K

 

 

Want bands that add something different to your look? Like the multiple band, stacked look? This is the blog for you. We present to you our Beverley K Top Picks & Stacking Tricks…

One of our favorite vintage inspired lines of engagement and wedding bands, Beverley K, will be making a big appearance at this Saturday’s bridal party. Our staff is in love with the collection because there is nothing else quite like it within the industry. A graceful femininity embraces the entire collection; from lacy, vintage filigree to elegant, modern design, Beverley K offers a variety of rich textures and finishes. This collection has something fitting for everyone’s personal style.

Whether you are looking to add some jazz to your engagement ring, start a stack for a different finger or on the right hand, or mix a variety of metals for an everyday look – this is the designer for you! We love to incorporate Beverley K to add a little mixed metal look when framing the engagement ring or stacking on the right hand. Nearly every band comes in white, yellow, rose gold and platinum, and some come with fun colorful stones. Interested to know what some of our favorite looks are? Check out some of the staff pics below:

What’s an Ear Cuff?

 

We’ve all heard of earrings and cuffs, but what in the world is an ear cuff? An ear cuff is best described as an earring that travels up or down the curve of the ear, and one thing is for sure… it’s a trend. It’s clear that the ear cuff trend is here to stay –  we’re seeing ear cuffs all over the red carpet this year on celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Sienna Miller, Demi Lovato, Vanessa Hudgens, Victoria Justice, Jessica Alba and Jennifer Connelly. Ear cuffs have been featured in magazines like Lucky, Glamour, Vogue and Cosmopolitan.

EarCuffCollage

It wasn’t long ago that we saw ear cuffs popping up on the runway and it’s clear that they are much more than a fad. “What’s the difference between a fad and a trend though?” you say.  Trends take a long time to burn out and they impact several different industries, whereas fads are here today and gone tomorrow and typically only affect a single industry. Clients have been coming into G. Thrapp Jewelers asking if we can show them a few styles for galas, black tie events and other occasions. Ear cuffs encompass many of this year’s jewelry trends: bigger and bolder looks, more colorful and exotic color combinations, as well as vintage and geometric looks.

Ear cuffs come in all shapes and sizes depending on what kind of look you are going for, they can be dainty or statement pieces. The best part is, they don’t all require pierced ears and they’re the perfect way to spice up your outfit for an upcoming cocktail party. Here are a few of the  most popular looks…

Since G. Thrapp Jewelers is always on the cusp (or cuff haha) of new trends, we HAD TO purchase at least one pair of ear cuffs during the Smart Show in Chicago. The pair we purchased were designed by Meira T, one of the designers we already feature at G. Thrapp Jewelers, and we are in LOVE with them. Take a look at our new ear cuffs Dana is modeling below:

Nina Nguyen’s Golden Beginning & Bright Future

 
One of our favorite parts about the Smart Show this weekend was talking with Nina Nguyen and ordering pieces of her newest jewelry. Nina’s world travels and life experiences inspire her creation of intricate, colorful, and artistic jewelry. Read below for more information on a truly inspiring designer, and check out some of the incredible pieces you can find at G. Thrapp Jewelers, just in time for Spring and Summer!Nina Nguyen Jewelry | Jewelry Stores IndianapolisNina used to help her mother trade gold in her hometown of Pleiku, Vietnam. On Sunday, her mother would set up her little table, and workers from the nearby river who’d panned for gold would line up to sell my mother their gold. Nina’s uncle used to make the beautiful sparkly gold dust into rings. As a girl growing up in war-torn Vietnam, Nina loved to help him with this process in his jewelry casting foundry. It was her job to bike to the market to deliver the gold. The gold rings were fastened on a chain for her to easily disguise under her clothes. This was to evade the communists’ eyes and ears on her parents. Being able to work closely with her family is a major part of her designing process.

After relocating to the United States, Nina continued to design jewelry as a hobby, using stones that are unique, mineral and fossilized, and can’t traditionally be found in jewelry stores. Lately, she’s incorporated stones such as druzy and geodes in her pieces. Now, she has a very successful line of jewelry that has been featured in magazines and jewelry stores all over the world. Not to mention, her jewelry has debuted on famous artists such as Miranda Lambert! Each of her pieces is designed in her Colorado studio and then handcrafted by artisans in Nina Nguyen Designs’ very own Women’s Co-Operative. The women employed at the Co-Op are given professional training, higher-than-average wages, full benefits, as well as education for their children. Nina holds the same high standards for their work conditions as she does for the beauty and quality of her products. Nina remarks,”I think all products should be made in a manner that benefits everyone involved. People should always be concerned with where the things they purchase come from, who made them, where the materials are from, and what will become of it when its life is over.”

Martin Flyer’s Bridal Party Preview

 

 

Since you’ll be browsing the largest selection of Martin Flyer inventory we’ll have in store this year at our Bridal Party on April 19th, we thought you might like to know some information about the brand, and of course, view some photos of their incredible engagement rings.

Martin Flyer opened its doors more than 65 years ago and is one of the most recognizable names in the jewelry industry today. Now based in a 10,000 square foot facility in Manhattan’s diamond district, the family business continues to carry out the Flyer tradition of providing customers with the highest quality products, competitive prices, and first class service.

Martin Flyer’s FlyerFit line was created in 2006. FlyerFit rings seek to eliminate “the dreaded gap” that exists between the engagement ring and the wedding band so the two rings fit together perfectly.

Martin Flyer engagement rings are broken down by five categories: Three Stone, Solitaire, Shared Prong, Micro Pave and Channel in order to simplify the buying process. Pick your favorite! There are images of all five categories below.
