I am crazy impressed with Wexford Jewelers. Impressed is an odd word to describe my reaction to our newest jewelry sponsor, I know. But the thing is, I work for a wedding blog, I see a LOT of jewelry — and I have NEVER seen anything like Wexford Jewelers designs.
Wanna feel impressed along with me? You will be when you see more of their designs and the special offer they have waiting for you at the end. Ooh, and you'll get a gander at the most badass BLACK wedding set that is really tempting my pocket book something fierce.
Wexford Jewelers has built handmade wedding, engagement, and commitment rings for nearly two freaking decades in their Northern Michigan foundry. Their ring designs come in a dozen incredible collections:
- Their flower-inspired collections are like metal gardens growing on your fingers: The Rose Collection, The Root Collection, The Organic Collection and The Garden Collection.
- Their more modern styles are space-inspired and full of sharp angles and sweeping lines: The Moon Collection, The Underground Collection, and The Motion Collection.
- Their organic collections are like one-of-kind art: The Melted Collection, The Clunkers Collection, and my favorite, The Raw Collection — pulled from the Earth and set directly into the metals they once shared ground with.
- Finally their vintage pieces: the Art Deco-inspired Structured Collection, and The Vintage Collection — some rings were actually molded from existing antique pieces in order to preserve a bit of art history!
Nearly all of their metals and diamonds are post-consumer — lessening the impact on not only the mining industries, but the gem cutting and import industries as well. The rest of their colored gems are hand-selected from ethical sources the world over. To go an even further eco step, they can also use your heirloom gems in custom pieces.
In fact, their specialty is embedding a bit of your story into a custom piece. They just recently finished a ring carved of orchids for a customer, and included a tiny Mickey Mouse head tucked into a rose vine — both of those design requests reflected the couple's love story of the particular customer.
OFFBEAT DISCOUNT: Wexford Jewelers is offering Offbeat Bride a free side accent gem for any order — diamond, sapphires of every color of the rainbow, ruby, amethyst, peridot, aquamarine, and so on. Just mention you saw them on Offbeat Bride when you place your order.
Admit it: you're impressed now too, huh? But you ain't seen nuthin' yet, I swear. Head over to Wexford Jewelers site and get your wow face ready.
