How to Wear Our Rose Gold Bridal Vine

A Very Versatile Vine

Why choose when you don’t have to?  We are obsessed with OPTIONS.
And our Rose Gold Bridal Vine gives you plenty of options!

Today we’re sharing two gorgeous ways to style it in your locks. 

(Plus, a third bonus look if you read through to the end!)

We made this delicate show-stopper with freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and genuine rose gold plated wire. It’s sure to become a treasured heirloom and special occasion go-to. 

High quality materials make our hair pieces stand out in a sea of rhinestones and nickel!

Style #1: Cascade on a Braid

We designed this vine with loops on each end.  When wearing the vine in your hair, use the loops to anchor bobby pins through and fasten it securely in your updo.  Place a few more pins along the length of the braid, and you’ll be set to dance the night away!

We love how the crystals and pearls add a touch of sparkle and (even more) interest to the side braid in this style.  It’s perfect for elevating a more relaxed dress style, like the one pictured here!

Style #2: The Halo (or, Party in the Back)

Did we mention we love options?  Because, we really really love options.

Styled as a halo, the vine can be worn with a veil or as a stand-alone piece.  Photographers especially love the versatility of this piece.  Give yourself the gift of variety!

If we haven’t given you enough reasons to get all tangled up in this vine, here’s one of the BEST ones:

Even though it’s ultra delicate and flexible, it’s made with one continuous piece of rose gold plated wire.  

That means it won’t come unwrapped.  You’ll never get poked or scratched by a rogue wire end.  And, you’ll never lose a crystal or a pearl!

How would YOU wear this piece?  

We’d love to hear your ideas in the comments.  Maybe you’ll think of something we haven’t yet!  Or, take it to your hairdresser and let them play!  You’ll have a look that’s uniquely yours.

Bonus look: The Choker

To wear the vine as a choker, loop the included ribbons through the ends and tie the ribbons together.  That way, you’ll always have a comfortable fit!

As you’re scrolling through these images, if you can peel your eyes away from our Crown of Ice hair comb, pay attention to the fun and intriguing play on opposites.

Heavy and Light

We love the way our Crown of Ice crystal spike hair comb glows in the natural light.  We think it’s the perfect hard and edgy compliment to the bride’s soft, natural curls.

We’re also loving this non-traditional gown by Baltimore designer, The Lotus Bloom Co.

It’s giving us all the badass, do-your-own-thing and own-it vibes.  And, we are here for it!

Nature plays a big, inspiring role here at J’Adorn.

So, we’re obsessed with these botanicals.

We’re loving the greens; and the geometric displays are everything.  The play on opposites here makes for an intriguing, appealing and – dare we say – SHOW STOPPING photograph!

 What more could you want?!

Oh, a stunning hairpiece to top it all off?

A boudoir shoot is designed to celebrate a woman’s beauty and sensuality.  When you’ve got the right photographer, they can be fun, empowering and FULL of self-love.  We love that our jewelry becomes a delicate compliment to the look, while still letting the woman’s beauty take center stage.  Have YOU ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot?

STYLE TIP 1: Statement Jewelry

  • Of course, we think tassel jewelry adds just the right amount of double meaning for a graduate, but it really is a great way to work some statement jewelry into your look.
  • Pick tassels that work well with your complexion or eyes: Warm colors like those in our Tiered Tassel Earrings in Red Neutrals complement brown eyes and warm complexion.
  • Add a hat if you’re comfortable (or bring one along to try out for a couple of shots)

STYLE TIP 2: Sparkly Earrings for Close Up Headshots

  • We love our Druzy Jewelry pieces because they catch the light so well and really “show up” on camera.
  • We’ve got them in *almost* as many shades as our tassels… and, with options available for silver, yellow gold or rose gold metal elements, you really can create the perfect look!
  • For fair skin, we love the way our Black Druzy Earrings pop in a headshot.

New Year, New Pantone, New Possibilities

Here at J’Adorn Designs, one of our favorite New Year traditions is the announcement of the Pantone Color Of The Year.

The new year is a time to embrace certain rituals and traditions of looking back and looking forward.  Last week, we reminisced about our favorite editorial collaborations of 2018.  But this week is about anticipating all that is to come in 2019!

2018 was royally vibrant with Ultra Violet.  But this year, we are so excited about LIVING CORAL!

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”

Pantone 2019 Living Coral

The warm, playful beachy vibes in Living Coral are GIVING US LIFE.  And we are so ready to fast forward to summer.  Or, at least to hop on a plane and jet set to the Caribbean!

However, it’s the meaning behind the color that really has us dreaming about all the potential 2019 holds.

Pantone 2019 Living Coral

This year, Pantone is seeking to capture the real-life warmth of human connection and intimacy with their 2019 choice.  Here’s what they have to say about Living Coral:

“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”

Ummm… did they just say: PLAYFUL EXPRESSION?!

Pantone, we must be vibing on the same frequency because Playful Expression is our middle name!  Well, at least  it’s the middle name we’d give ourselves.  Especially when we’re talking TASSELS and GEMSTONES.

And, “enabling connection and intimacy” is basically our mission statement with every special piece we make here at J’Adorn Designs!

Living Coral feels like a day on the beach with your besties.  Fruity drinks, straw hats, oversized sunnies, loose braids and vibrant tassel earrings.

We love the way aquas, blues and greens compliment Living Coral and help it pop.  So, if you’re wearing a coral swimsuit or sundress, pair it with our blue-hue tassels for a playful expression of your own!

But, if you’re wanting a Living Coral look that’s a bit more refined, we say:

GIVE US ALL THE GOLD!

Rose Gold has been in the spotlight for a few years now, and we’re certainly not ready to see her go.  However, yellow gold is the perfect warm metallic to compliment Pantone’s 2019 choice.

And if yellow gold is what you want, yellow gold is what we’ve got!

And lots of it, too.  Beyond our Gold Leaves and Pearl Necklace and our Pink Crystal Spike Necklace we’ve got warm golds in just about any way you’d want to wear them.

In addition to Living Coral, we are forecasting the 2019 trend of HAIR ADORNMENTS!  Not just for bridal wear, we are seeing an increased demand for beautiful hairpins and combs to be worn day-to-day.

(And especially you babes with the mermaid hair!  Twist up all those stunning colors and add some sparkle.)

So, fill your wardrobe with Living Coral and then swing by the Jewelry Shop and stock up on all the warm golds and playful tassels your little heart can handle.  We’ll just be here, in a coral daze, waiting for beach weather!
