RING BLING: Say I DO with WOW-worthy Rings

Posted October 1, 2010 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

HAPPY FRIDAY, brides!  Hope you have tons planned this weekend (I know I do)!  If you thought JAW-DROPPING, WOW-WORTHY engagement rings were only found at jewelers and fancy-pants places downtown, think again!  Some of the most incredible, original, awe-inspiring engagement rings are handcrafted by artisans – like these pretties (above) by Barbara Michelle Jacobs Jewelry.  When we discovered Barbara’s shop, we were floored.  These rustic, nature-inspired rings are something we’d only dreamed of (or heard about in fairytale dreamlands).  Check out the detailing – that’s handmade, honey!  You won’t find rings like these in chain stores.

But you WILL find them at shops like Barbara Michelle Jacobs Jewelry, an EB Featured Artist!  Barbara creates some of the most awe-inspiring rings we have ever seen.  Her collection of engagement/wedding rings are especially beautiful, with nature-inspired details and sensational diamonds and gemstones.  In fact, everything is made from recycled gold and most of the diamonds are pre-owned – easy on our collective social conscience. Check out our mini-inspiration board featuring some of our hand-picked favorites!

Find more rings here and at Barbara Michelle Jacobs Jewelry! xoxo
