Summer Wedding Survival Guide - Part One

Written by Laura Stamper

Whether you are the bride, bridesmaid, mother (of the groom or bride)
or a guest, you will want to look and feel your best.  What better way
to do that than to accessorize with your own distinct style.

Let’s talk about rings.  Diamonds from Tiffany are nice,
but ... out of your price range??  Never fear!

Having financial parameters to work within does
not mean you have to sacrifice style or originality.
There are many talented artisans that offer fine
handcrafted options for every taste and budget.

This contemporary solitaire is edgy and urban, and there is
no need to worry about where and how the diamond was mined:

Gold bands are a classic.  This handcrafted set for
the bride and groom is simple yet contemporary.

Or this pretty yellow sapphire solitaire:

There really are no rules when looking for rings. Thinking
outside of the box opens the door for endless possibilities. 
Next time we will look at accessories for the bride!
