In 2021, a ‘code of conduct’ for weddings doesn’t exist - you can (and should!!) make your day as unique as your love itself. All that said, we do still have a special place in our hearts for the “something old, something new…” adage, and it’s not because we’re suspicious of bad luck or omens on the wedding day, either. We just think it’s a fun tradition to play with, especially when the prescriptions are pretty tailorable. What each bride or couple chooses for their something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue is completely open to interpretation, personal tastes and preferences - making for weddings that aren’t cookie cutter anymore. So, as we think about the rhyme in the context of this year and beyond, we wanted to offer our two cents (do with it as you wish 😊): go with colorful gemstone jewelry for your something new. We’d be happy to make some recommendations, right Delarah Jewelry?
Delarah is a Los Angeles-based online fine jewelry retailer, with a primary focus on authentic high-quality gemstones. The name Delarah is a Persian word for “adorning the heart” and making it more beautiful. The company and its creatives and innovators, likewise hope that Delarah jewelry will adorn you and make you feel more beautiful. And on your wedding day? Psst, that’s the dream!!
Delarah is all about authentic, brilliant gemstones – the very treasures of the earth. All their gemstones are natural and of the highest quality in each category they’re offered in. The collection caters to a wide range of styles, from classic and traditional to modern and avant-garde, at myriad competitive price points, so there is truly something for everyone. Brand leadership believes that exceptional, best-in-class jewelry should be easily available and affordable, so by offering their jewelry online only, they can bypass traditional markups and offer incredible savings to you, the ones getting married and starting your own something new.
Yes, over the years, we’ve seen color come through in the world of ‘I do,’ but for the most part, iterations of white and neutral hues have been what’s trending for what seems like forever. Ivory, alabaster, blush, grey, champagne are all great, truly, but pops of color are unexpected and surprising. And with jewelry, colorful gemstones can bring drama and dimension in very subtle, yet commanding ways, unlike major fashion or floral moments.
Don’t get us wrong, diamonds and other white or clear accent stones (along with white and yellow gold) will always be beautiful additions to the contemporary bridal trousseau. But once your wedding day is done, what are your truthful and honest thoughts about when you’ll wear this bracelet, this necklace, these earrings again? We’d be willing to bet that they’ll be stowed in your jewelry box and taken out again on only the rarest and most special occasions. We get it, we have lots of those, too!! Gemstone jewelry, though, breaks through that ‘but it’s so bridal’ stereotype.
At Delarah, you’ll find an impressive variety of gemstones, from popular birthstones (like opals, rubies, and sapphires) to lesser-known, yet stunning gemstones (like rhodolite garnet - which is the prettiest rose-purple rendition of red), at a range of price points from affordable to high-end. For example, you can find affordable genuine emerald pendants at under $100, or heirloom-quality Zambian emerald pendants that are priced over $40,000. This ensures that gorgeous gemstones aren’t just attainable for an exclusive, privileged group of people. Every bride is deserving!!
Even if you’re not sure what to purchase (and that’s a fairly new thing to begin with, buying fine jewelry for yourself, not getting it as a gift), get in touch with their friendly and super-helpful representatives over email or live chat, and they’ll help you find the best jewelry for your wedding day [and well beyond]!
