Rock ‘n Roll Recognized

We love hearing about unique and creative weddings – weddings that really reflect the bridal couple’s personality rather than fulfilling some perceived expectation of what a wedding should be. And we always love being a part of making that happen with creative and custom personalized wedding rings.

The Rock n Roll Bride is a very cool site that celebrates this kind of individuality. But let’s let Kat, the woman behind the site, describe her mission as only Kat can:

“Rock n Roll Bride promotes individuality and general awesomeness within a cookie cutter, pastel and puke-worthy wedding world. Don’t let the wedding industry define your day – let *you* define your day.”

Giggle. You gotta love it.  We especially love that the Rock ‘n Roll Bride recently posted a sweet little review of Sorella Jewelry Studio for their readers. We are honored to be “Rock ‘n Roll recognized”. Thank you, Kat!

Love Is In The Air

JESS-RING-110

Wedding  ring and anniversary ring orders tell us that there’s definitely quite a bit of romance in the air. And while our Roman Numeral, Chinese Symbol and Name and Message Rings are all very popular choices, we’ve been creating quite a few completely custom rings for customers. And that made us realize that we haven’t talked much about these little custom beauties.

If you have a vision for a ring – whether it be a modification of one of our existing pieces or something completely different and new – we can help you bring it to life.

Below are two completely custom rings we’ve recently completed – one a twentieth anniversary ring and one an engagement ring. Both stunning and one-of-a-kind.

Anniversary Ring

The first ring was created by a very sweet husband named Bill for his bride of twenty years. Bill wanted to create something stunning and spectacular that would thank his wife for twenty wonderful years. Now that’s a true romantic.

Bill’s inspiration was our Pierced Roman Numeral Ring, Rimmed with Diamonds in 18k yellow gold. We slimmed the band and added a 1.2ct center cushion cut diamond rimmed with twenty smaller diamonds.

We thought the ring was beautiful and really enjoyed creating it for such a special couple. Bill sent us a note after he gave his wife the ring to let us know it was a big hit. We were thrilled.

Engagement Ring

The second ring is an engagement ring for a very particular young woman. She had done extensive research and had selected different elements that she liked from a variety of different rings.  We pulled them all together to create a truly stunning engagement ring that fulfilled our bride’s vision.

The ring was created in platinum with the center piece a cushion cut 1.5ct diamond rimmed with small diamonds with a princess cut diamond on either side and small diamonds down the shank. The total diamond carat weight of the ring is 2.5ct.

It was a thrill to create such a spectacular one-of-a-kind ring for a very special young woman.

The Ring Finger?

Ever wonder why wedding rings in western cultures are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left hand, commonly known as the “ring finger”?

The most common belief is that the practice dates to the Roman betrothal ceremony. The vein in the left ring finger was believed to connect directly to the heart, the symbol of love.

But through history the wedding ring has been worn on different fingers and hands. Traditions have varied by time, locale, culture and religion.

Today, the left ring finger is where the wedding ring is worn in most western cultures.
