The Elegant Equestrian-her simple, classic jewelry choices represent her adoration for the horse.

As a child, she fantasized about someday owning a steed until finally, her one true wish came to fruition. She competed in dressage, making sure her trainers knew of the strong relationship she had with her beloved equine, and now, she’s teaching her own children how to love the same animal who once appeared in her nightly dreams. 

1. Susan Wheeler

A natural, radiant beauty, her trademark look when dressed in her equestrian best includes a crisp white dress shirt and a pair of ethically-made silver cufflinks.

Double-sided, high-polished horse profile cufflinks made in ethically-sourced, Fairmined silver.

3. Roberto Coin

Even though she’s a woman of relatively simple tastes, the Elegant Equestrian has — from time to time — splurged on herself when she sees something that speaks to her: a designer silk scarf, a pair of fine leather riding boots, or in this case, a gold and diamond bracelet.

THE FORTUNE TELLER is a woman who believes in the power of her talismanic jewelry. She loves past inspiration but prefers to wear symbolic pieces from modern designers and think about the next chapter in her life. She values love, luck and protection, and she appreciates charms that hold deep meaning in these areas. She is fearless about mixing metals, colors and medallions together as long as they are significant to her.

1. Foundrae

For the Fortune Teller, a charm bracelet reflects where she has been and how she is moving forward in her life. She wears the lion medallion for strength, the dream star, arrow and triangle for “actualizing her dreams,” the scarab for protection and the karma medallion to send out positive energy into the world.

Foundrae extended clip chain with four 20mm medallions with diamond accents, all in 18K yellow gold.

Signet rings have provided meaning throughout history, from family crests and seals that were used to sign important documents to motifs that related one’s hobbies. The Fortune Teller is enamored of contemporary signet rings that are relevant in modern times and to her on a personal level. This one with a lion signifies “fearlessness and being extraordinary.”

This Earth-Loving Bridal Customer Type Says “I Do” to Helping the Environment

When someone does all they can to help make our planet healthier, they want it to carry over to their wedding day. The Green Bride opts to go the recycled route. Her wedding gown is vintage — originally worn by her grandmother — and her jewels are all made by independent jewelry designers that use ethically sourced gemstones and eco-friendly gold in their creations.


1. Dana Bronfman

With a style that is earthy and elegant, the Green Bride chose simple — but meaningful — hoops for her wedding day.

New Constellation Bubble Hoops with reclaimed round brilliant cut diamonds (0.08 TCW) which are burnished-set into reclaimed 18K yellow gold satin finished earrings. 

$2,000

2. Bario Neal

Triangles are often used as spiritual symbols representing three parts of a being (mind, body, and spirit), or three parts of time (past, present, and future). The Green Bride and her beloved together chose this ring to represent both aspects of their existence together.

Handmade 18K recycled yellow gold Trillion Dyad ring with two ethically-sourced (and fully traceable) bezel set, custom-cut Sri Lankan white trillion sapphires. 

$2,550

3. Just Jules

The Green Bride believes it’s better to reuse and recycle than to buy new. This makes for less waste but still opens markets up to jobs for those who know a thing or two about previously-enjoyed products and jewels.

Vintage gold-filled locket redesigned on a 14K yellow gold chain with white sapphire briolettes and bezel-set moonstone accents. 

$800

4. Original Eve

Finding the perfect person with whom to share her desires, passions, and concerns for the planet is no easy task for the Green Bride, which is why she’s chosen a wedding band to represent the eternal love she and her partner will vow to stand by.

Satin-finished custom diamond eternity band in 18K recycled yellow gold containing prong-set elongated white baguette diamonds.
