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.

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.

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.

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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
