Customized Bridal Earrings and Bracelet Set for a German Bride

How one #jadornbride made a pair of pretty bridal earrings perfect for her wedding in Berlin

Today I’m sharing a real-life example of how to order custom jewelry based on a pair of bridal earrings from my shop!

When #jadornbride Rachel first reached out to me, it was because she had fallen in love with a pair of beautiful bridal earrings from my collection. However, she was looking for a slightly shorter pair of earrings for her wedding in Germany. I assured her that she could have both the size and look she wanted and I worked with her over a series of emails to customize the opal and gold vine earrings she loved into a pair that was perfect for her!

Side by side comparison

The original pair of gold bridal earrings that Rachel fell in love with featured long opal teardrops below a delicate crystal vine. To make them slightly shorter I swapped out the long teardrop for a shorter opal teardrop stone. I couldn’t be more pleased with the way the customized pair of earrings turned out, and their #jadornbride agrees!

A Bracelet to Match

Rachel also ordered a matching bracelet to complete her bridal jewelry set: the Crystal Vine and Pearl Bracelet (pictured below) from the J’Adorn Designs jewelry shop. I custom-sized this piece for her as well because she thought it might be too big for her tiny wrist. I simply removed one of the vine links and added a small gold extender chain to ensure the perfect fit for her bridal bracelet!

A Rave Review for Customized Bridal Jewelry

When Rachel received her customized bridal jewelry set in the mail, she sent me an email to let me know just how much she loved it! She said:

“The earrings and bracelet are just beautiful!!!! Just what I was hoping for, if not even more beautiful in person!! I’ve shown photos to my best friend and my sister and they’ve described them as stunning and exquisite!!”

Jill’s Elegant Wedding Day Style

When Jill and I met for her initial design consultation, I knew almost immediately that her custom bridal jewelry was going to be special. As I shared in a previous post, I created a coordinating set of accessories for Jill to wear on her wedding day. This set included a double stranded pearl bracelet, two pairs of earrings, and a golden hair vine with elements in blush, pearl, and crystal – the perfect elegant wedding day look! Today I’m sharing a look inside how she styled these accessories with her beautiful gold and ivory gown on her wedding day.

The gold beaded belt she added was the perfect complement to the elegant gold jewelry with blush pearls, metallic leaves, and diamond white crystals. Her custom hair vine was molded perfectly by her hair stylist to complement the low, boho-style updo she chose for her blonde hair.

A Maryland-based artisan herself, Jill wanted to support local small business as much as possible while selecting items for her wedding.  She chose The Garter Girl to make her stylish ivory wedding garter and Eikoh Design Studio for her customized glass jewelry box. I think all of the details came together perfectly, don’t you?


elegant wedding custom jewelry, j'adorn designsEven though the accessories and details at this wedding were pretty darn close to perfect, the most beautiful part of the day was the love that Jill and Eric so clearly have for one another. It shines through every picture!  To Jill and Eric, the newlyweds: may your new life together as husband and wife be every bit as beautiful as your elegant wedding day was (even if it can’t be as perfect!) Thank you for choosing J’Adorn Designs to create your elegant wedding accessories!

Custom Wedding Jewelry for Olivia + Anthony

Olivia and Anthony have been friends of ours for years, and we’ve had the pleasure of watching their relationship grow from high school sweethearts to the young adult newlyweds they are today. The way these two adore each other is evident in every picture from their wedding day, and the jewelry I designed for Olivia was just icing on the cake of their beautiful love. It was my great honor to design custom wedding jewelry for Olivia + Anthony on their special day!

Olivia chose the Oval and Teardrop Bridal Earrings from our pre-designed couture jewelry collection to wear to her wedding at Celebrations by the Bay on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The earrings were a perfect complement to her engagement ring, which features an emerald cut diamond from Anthony’s grandmother’s wedding ring. We completed her look with an adapted version of our Something Old Pearl Bracelet, using sterling silver rather than reclaimed gold metal elements. The result was even more lovely than I could have imagined!

Custom Wedding Jewelry for Jill + Eric

Custom bridal jewelry set by J'Adorn Designs couture and custom accessories, gold crystal and pearl bracelet earrings hair vine photography by Nichole Rosado Meredith for bride Jill Dombroskie of Tomahawk Design Co, Baltimore DC Virginia custom jewelerThis summer has been the best one for J’Adorn Designs yet. This is because I’ve had record breaking numbers of custom designs, and each suite of accessories seems to be even more beautiful than the last. I’m more than a little obsessed with my most recent commission and I’m thrilled to highlight them on the blog today.

I made this set of custom wedding jewelry for Jill, a fellow creative entrepreneur and the designer behind Tomahawk Design Co. Like many of my clients, Jill has sensitive skin, which made the quality & type of metals I used to make her wedding jewelry a high priority. We opted for 16k gold plated earring posts, which I knew would ensure her comfort for the duration of her wedding day – from first look to last dance. We also incorporated freshwater pearls in an adapted version of our Laurel Earrings in Gold & Blush and some tiny accent earrings for her second ear piercings.

The set was made complete by a two-strand bracelet of Swarovski pearls with crystal and gold connectors. The finishing touch (and my favorite piece of the set!) was Jill’s branch-y hairpin, which makes the perfect complement to the low, loose updo that she’ll wear on her wedding day. Scroll through to the bottom of the post for a sneak peek of Jill’s gorgeous hairstyle!

Custom Wedding Jewelry for Kimberly + Jesse

One of the great joys I’ve had since founding J’Adorn Designs in 2012 has been the opportunity to reconnect with old friends right before one of the biggest days of their lives. This was the case with Kimberly – a friend of mine from high school with whom I’d only kept in touch via social media since our graduation. Interestingly enough, the groom also graduated high school with us (although they didn’t begin dating until after college), so designing this bridesmaids’ jewelry suite had an especially personal element for me as a designer.

Kimberly’s family lived in France for a good portion of her childhood, an experience that clearly had an influence on her sense of style and elegant taste. While the bride opted to wear heirloom pieces on her wedding day, she commissioned me to design a varied but coordinated suite of custom jewelry for her bridesmaids. It was my great pleasure to create these special pieces for the women who stood beside her.
