Recently I purchased a piece from this Etsy seller and, I must say, their pieces would make the perfect bridesmaid’s gift. With delicate necklaces, earring, and rings featuring non-traditional stones, JewelParadise’s well-made, affordable accessories would make any woman smile. I’m especially impressed with the more whimsical necklaces featuring camera and calla lily charms. Check them out!

Jewelry is and always will be the icing on the cake of a bride’s ensemble. To make sure your bling is extra sweet, head over to Amamika & Shinji. This Tokyo-based  Etsy shop and private atelier sells artfully crafted sterling silver pieces inspired by whimsical motifs such as dragonflies, clovers and sakura, in addition to more simplistic designs. The prices may be a bit indulgent (from $40 to a whopping $940), but the pieces are well worth the cost.

Minter and Richter Designs is an Etsy shop that fashions wedding bands out of the most unlikely materials. The shop has the usual suspects (titanium) and has picked up on some trends (woodgrain inlay)… but, how many people can say that their wedding band features concrete? It may be considered an industrial material, but Minter and Richter designs incorporates it in a way that makes the final product an elegant option with  a little edge.

Streamlined Elegance

Etsy has provided yet another means to acquire wedding day accessories. Little White Dresser specializes in wedding day hair accessories, dress accessories, and jewelry for the vintage-loving bride. Among my favorite lacy pieces in the shop is their silvery belt and this lovely blush pink hair flower. Several of the necklaces made me smile as well, and the affordability will make the budget-savvy bride grin from ear to ear.

In my head, I imagined that engagement and wedding rings of the future would look like this!

Renaissance Fine Jewelry is an Etsy seller that specializes in titanium rings. Within their inventory is a wide range of lovely tension-set rings featuring several different gemstones. Not only are the prices perfect for a couple on a tight budget, but they offer sizing at no extra cost. Yes! Now, it only we could perfect the flying car…

Once again, I am impressed with wedding bands made with alternative materials! Custom Jewelry by Johan is an Etsy seller that specializes in titanium, meteorite, and wood-grain rings that would be perfect for the modern couple. Johan also accepts custom work-just send him a sketch and he will turn it into reality. But, if your imagination doesn’t stretch so far, simply choose one of the gorgeous ready-made designs.

As you are more than aware by now, I am a huge fan of alternative engagement rings (i.e., ones that don’t necessarily feature the traditional diamond). I am also a fan of Etsy. So, imagine my joy when I discovered Kyle Ann Metals, an Etsy shop that creates gorgeous handcrafted jewelry with a lovely selection of rings to choose from!

Kyle Ann’s pieces tend towards the very simple, minimalist bezel set design, but with a twist. Moonstones, amethyst, pearls, and other unique gemstones are the focus of their collection. But, for you traditionalists, there is a lovely diamond ring that is included. Best of all-these rings can be had for a steal!

Zoe and Doyle is an Etsy seller that specializes in titanium rings with fashionable flair. While some of their bands are pure minimalist, some incorporate details such as engraving, wood detail, and color for an added kick. These bands would be a perfect fit for a no-frills bride and would be a fabulous option for the future hubby’s wedding band-masculine enough for him, classy enough for you.
