Necklaces

They continued the druzy jewelry theme with our Crystal Spike & Druzy Necklace. And they also fell in love with our raw crystal pieces, like the Pink Crystal Spike Necklace with Freshwater Pearl Accent.

Bracelets

When it came to bracelets, the Baltimore Museum of Art wanted something a little different. They liked our Chunky Crystal & Pearl Link Bracelet, but requested a customization: rose gold metals.
Since we’re custom jewelers at heart, we were happy to oblige! And we love the thought that the Baltimore Museum of Art has a piece of J’Adorn Designs jewelry that’s exclusive to their shop. As of this blog’s publication date, you can’t find this bracelet in rose gold anywhere else!

Hair Accessories

When we first met with the Baltimore Museum of Art, it was our hair accessories that caught their eye. With headpieces gaining popularity outside of the wedding industry, they were excited to add some to their lineup! They selected pieces with the material themes of raw crystal and rose gold elements with these three pieces from our collection:

Rose Gold Bridal Accessories & Baby Goats!

What do rose gold bridal accessories and baby goats have in common? 

They both steal the show in this bridal style feature!

We collaborated with a great team of Maryland wedding vendors to create this warm, romantic styled photo session.

The Annapolis Wedding Blog recently published this editorial on their website, so today we’re sharing some of our favorite pictures!

We adore the way Leah’s red hair looks with the warm tones in her rose gold bridal accessories.
It’s a look that we’ve just can’t get enough of!

And we think the botanical elements of her wedding gown pair perfectly with the little sprouts featured in her earrings & floral hairpin.
Here’s a closer look at that handcrafted rose gold hairpin:

Besides being adorable, the baby goat adds to the whimsical natural style of these photos. Sure, it would still be beautiful without the little goat. But why would you ever pass on that little face? We certainly don’t know!

Raw Crystal Bridal Jewelry with Vintage Vibes

Today, we’re showing off the custom set of bridal jewelry we created full of vintage vibes and stunning raw crystals.

Bride Kylie found us on Instagram.  She fell in love with a post featuring our Deco Rose Gold Bridal Earrings, but the metal color wasn’t exactly right for her.  She reached out to us to see if it would be possible to get them in yellow gold.  

  • And as a custom jeweler, our answer is (almost) always YES!

What started as a request for customized earrings quickly grew into a full custom set of bridal jewels.  The raw crystals paired with a vintage style came together in the most romantic way.

In the end, we created four elements for Kylie’s wedding look:
  • earrings
  • necklace
  • bracelet
  • hairpin set
Notice the vintage details in these pieces!  From the warm, yellow gold and deco-style embellishments inspired by the original earrings that caught Kylie’s eye; to the rough clear crystal quartz points and the more delicate clear Swarovski crystal “sprouts” (our signature element).

This set gives us all the romantic vintage wedding feels.  And we think raw crystals might be the most lovely wedding jewelry element since pearls!

We played with the contrast between rough + fine for a stunning effect.  The delicate chains on the necklace and bracelet set against the rough crystals give interest to the look.  And, the set ended up looking cohesive but not overly “matchy.”

Pure perfection!

And, in a time when rose gold is having a moment and white gold has been the standard, these warm yellow hues are refreshing (and just the right way to keep that vintage vibe).

Kylie sent us such a sweet message when her vintage wedding jewels showed up on her doorstep:

“I wanted to let you know I got all of the jewelry and it is even prettier in person! I love it all…and I can’t wait to see it all put together on the wedding day!”

This bridal set has got our design wheels turning as we think about the next bridal collection.
