I previously mentioned that Eryn had her eyes on my opal lariat necklace for her big “something borrowed” jewelry, but wound up selecting a different design. Here’s a belated photo of her mom helping her with my one-of-a-kind Selene moonstone necklace.
When you work for a jewelry designer, you don’t stop with one “something borrowed.” As you can see, Eryn also wore my opal studs, while her mother wore my Papessa prayer locket necklace. (The bridesmaids also got to borrow.) Here’s a close-up of Eryn’s pieces. I’m proud to say she mixed metals. The earrings are set in 18K yellow gold, while the necklace is 18K white gold.
Continuing the mixed-metals theme, you may recall that I made Eryn’s custom engagement ring in blackened 18K rose gold.
I created her wedding band with the same vine-like motif, but in 18K yellow gold with black diamond accents. She requested the style, metal, and gems, but she didn’t get to see the finished ring until the big moment. I like to keep those surprises coming.
The band is curved gently to fit around her engagement ring, and it’s slim, to leave room on that finger for an 18K white gold anniversary band. (Hint, hint.) Once again, best wishes to Eryn, and congratulations to her handsome groom, Donnie!
