Something Borrowed & Old

Something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new….

Your wedding day is an incredibly special time to celebrate the love between you and your partner. It is also a wonderful time to reflect on those that raised you and helped shape the person you are today!


In honor of the Royal Wedding this Saturday, we took a trip back in time to see what type of custom jewelry Queen Elizabeth II wore on her wedding day.

The Queen’s own engagement ring was a custom creation. Prince Philip proposed to Elizabeth with a platinum ring featuring a round, three-carat brilliant stone flanked by smaller pavé-set diamonds. The diamonds in her ring were all procured from the crown of Princess Alice of Battenburg, Prince Philip’s mother. That is not all the diamonds were used for. Queen Elizabeth also received an elaborate platinum and diamond bracelet crafted from Princess Alice’s tiara diamonds.

Bride, Kristen, is a perfect example of taking something borrowed and old and turning it into something remarkable. Kristen used various loose diamonds from both her grandmother and mother to custom design the perfect drop necklace to wear with her gorgeous gown. She was able to construct something meaningful to her wedding day, to her family, and something that she will love far after the wedding has ended. As you will see, she has 6 bezeled diamonds featured on her custom creation.
