Even if you don’t wear a lot of color in your wardrobe, these gemstones are just enough to brighten your look without being too flashy.

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:

For the Whimsical Woman…

It is no surprise that Megan Thorne has been featured in Vogue, Brides and Lucky. Her creations are instantly recognizable because they combine whimsical, antique and contemporary design into a truly unique piece. Because of the intimate size of the operation, Thorne touches every piece and she enjoys connecting with every couple as their personal stories shape the design of their rings. It is this intimacy with her craft and materials that brings forth the integrity of every piece.

Her bridal collection is perfect for women who have an appreciation for art and intricacy. She is not afraid to go against the grain and break the rules of the “traditional” engagement rings. The wearer of a Megan Thorne ring wants something that is uniquely her own.

Sales associate, Julie Wilson said, “Women are really drawn to Megan Thorne, they love her pieces and they tend to come back looking to add to their collection. Most of the pieces we sell at G. Thrapp are yellow or rose gold.”

Sales Associate, Michelle Farmer loves Megan Thorne’s designs because they are so incredibly unique. Her favorite ring is the emerald cut, picture frame ring because of its feminine, unique setting. It doesn’t look like anything else in the market.

Sales Associate and Watch Specialist, Joshua Shanafelt said, “I love the style of Megan Thorne’s engagement collection. Surprisingly enough, a few of my clients have reset their original diamond into a Megan Thorne ring and worn it as a right hand ring. They usually will then purchase a larger carat weight diamond for their original engagement ring.”

Lika Behar Jewelry

Lika Behar was born in the magnificent city of Istanbul. With roots in ancient Anatolian civilizations, this former Byzantine capital has evolved into a cosmopolitan metropolis which juxtaposes sublime historical architectural expressions within a modern skyline. As such, Istanbul is known as one of the truly great romantic destinations of the world and is the fundamental source of inspiration for the Lika Behar Collection.

Lika’s family lineage is one of storied gold coin dealers; a trade long believed to be the lifeline of the Mediterranean. Her collection elegantly reconciles the rich inspiration of ancient jewelry traditions, utilizing only pure and nimble 24 Karat gold. The results are pieces wrought with a sensual and tactile modernism. The 2008 collection is also infused with brilliant gemstones reflecting the varying hues that recall the depths of blue waters that cradle Lika’s birth country. Her workroom in Istanbul deftly reconciles ancient history with the sensibility of the modern world. Each piece from the collection is uniquely hand wrought with the exquisite precision once celebrated by ancient artisans; yielding a tawny luxury fit for the modern woman whose jewelry reflects, at the same time ancient history, and the art that is the modern feminine spirit.
