You may remember Michelle’s custom jewelry story and her sapphire jewelry from earlier this year…
After falling in love with an unattainable antique necklace that she saw in a magazine, Michelle reached out to have me make a custom set of wedding jewelry for her using that necklace as inspiration.
Scroll down to see how she styled her custom sapphire wedding jewelry set!
Michelle’s personal style is one of classic elegance with sentimental touches.
She combined timeless pieces like her solitaire diamond engagement ring with personal details like hairstyling from her long-time friend Erica Cote of Silver Immersion.
Her sapphire jewelry set represents both of these important elements as accessories and new heirlooms. The style is ageless; and Michelle will enjoy remembering the happiness of her wedding day whenever she wears these special jewels.
Here’s what Michelle had to say about her custom sapphire jewelry and her custom design experience:
“Everything Alison created was totally beautiful and far met my expectations. I so enjoyed working with Alison in the months leading up to my wedding. She was extremely responsive, always willing to share ideas, quick to research my visions, and helpful with referrals to other vendors for my wedding planning. Not only did Alison create stunning pieces for my wedding, which my guests were talking about all night, she also became my friend.”
Michelle’s sapphire and diamond halo earrings and matching necklace were bespoke designs. To inquire about similar custom bridal accessories for your wedding, send me a message!

We recently had the honor of seeing an editorial shoot we contributed to earlier this year featured on the wedding blog, Burnett’s Boards. In this post we’re sharing a few of our personal favorite shots by Red October Photography from this cool, modern D.C. bridal shoot with gold and navy blue elements.
We especially love the way Tiffany of Simply Breathe Events chose to style the jewelry from our collection into a few different looks for the bridal model – and that amazing cake created by Evan of Sweets by E! Check out the full gallery, and let us know in the comments which part is your favorite.

Today we’ve been given the great honor of being a Highlighted Vendor on The Big Fake Wedding’s blog! Click over to their website to read the full write-up and learn a bit about lead designer Alison’s journey as the owner of J’Adorn Designs.
Enjoy some images of the jewelry we created for The BFW Baltimore after the jump!
“It was SUCH a joy getting to know and work with Alison from J’Adorn Designs in Baltimore. It is difficult for me to believe that she is a self-taught jeweler as her intricate designs are pure artistry. Alison’s attention to detail – and sweet personality! – make her a dream to work with. For all of you brides-to-be out there, I encourage you to consider working with J’Adorn Designs to create something special for your special day…and for all of those special ladies who will be by your side (mamas, grandmamas, bridesmaids, flower girls).”
-The Big Fake Wedding Baltimore Team
We are pleased to announce that J’Adorn Designs has been hand selected to be a vendor for the Big Fake Wedding’s event in Baltimore, MD, on July 23rd, 2015. BFW events take place across the country and we are thrilled to have been hand selected for their production in Baltimore.
For those unfamiliar with the event, The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative in the form of a big, fake wedding, which gives brides-and-grooms-to-be the unique opportunity to see the work of local wedding vendors in action. There is a ceremony, reception, catered meal, and Tunnel of Love where guests get to meet and collect goodies from participating vendors. J’Adorn Designs will be the official jeweler of the event, providing jewelry for the bride and her bridesmaids.
While our specific jewelry designs for the Baltimore BFW will remain a secret until the event’s big reveal, here’s a little teaser of the styling you can expect to see from those of us putting together the details:
Will you be one of the “wedding guests” in attendance? Leave us a comment and we’ll look for you in the Tunnel of Love!
