Precious Stones

Earth tones have made a huge comeback this season. Perhaps the fashion world is becoming  more “environmentally sensitive”, but no matter the reason, we’re thrilled about it! As seen on the runways, earth-tone jewelry was a major theme. Letting us channel our inner hippie ( like a queen), we’re embracing gemstones with hues of green, amber and maroon. Also, ocean blue and topaz are being used constantly, which is especially good news if you were born in May.

Don’t miss out on one of the most chic accessories of the season. This gorgeous vintage cuff by Gottlieb & Sons offers  a uniquely formal take on this trend.

Well, neither is this ring, so it’s a match made in heaven. May you both be happy together!

Think of you ring search as just another shopping trip that’s going to reflect your bold and unique style. Don’t worry, we’ve got faith in you, little diva!

Engagement Ring Care Tips

It’s the jewelry you’re stuck with for eternity, so you’ll want to make sure it’s always a knockout. There’s nothing impressive about a semi-shiny rock, glazed in makeup, chipotle and whatever other messy obsessions you’ve got. Not cute!  To always keep your sparkler looking its best, you’ll want to take these careful steps to protect your diamond in the rough.

  1. Take It Off!

We cannot stress this one enough, and that’s why it’s made number 1 on this list.  If you’re getting your hands dirty (literally), do your ring a favor and set it aside. When you’re lifting at the gym, playing sports or getting cozy with massage oils, it’s a good idea to let your ring sit on the sidelines—hidden away that is. You don’t want your ring becoming a disgusting roadmap of all your daily activities!

Some women even choose to wear a faux diamond replacement ring, so they’ve still got something marking their non-single status. It shows respect to your fiancé, while also protecting your ring. For most ladies, it’s a brilliant option.

  1. Leave it to the Professionals

Just like spring cleaning, there’s going to come a time in the year where you need to do a full out clean of your ring. But unlike spring cleaning where you must slave away doing it yourself, this is a task better left to the jeweler. They’ll know exactly what to use on your type of stone and metal, and they’ll leave it looking better than when you dropped it off… “I’m here to pick up my glistening diamond, please.” Now, who needs a cocktail when you’ve got this pick-me-up waiting for you?

  1. At-Home Cleaning

In addition to the annual professional cleaning, you’re going to want to take matters into your own hands. Occasionally, you’ll have to get off your cute butt and scrub that ring yourself. Now we don’t mean an aggressive “scrub your bathroom tile” type of cleaning, but a gentle cleanse that will keep your ring looking fresh on the daily. Insider tip: use a makeup brush with dish detergent to clean in between all the little grooves.

  1. Ensure You Insure It

Just like you insure your car or your house, you should insure your engagement ring. There’s nothing worse than losing your gorgeous new ring, oh wait…except losing it and having no money to replace it! You can’t put a price on peace of mind, and insurance is going to make sure you and your ring spend your lives together in holy matrimony.

 

Remember, he put a ring on it, so the least you can do is keep that ring looking shiny and spotless. You wouldn’t wear a dress with a stain on it (we hope), so you shouldn’t be wearing a ring full of gunk and who knows what. Plus, since you’re newly engaged, you never know when someone’s going to ask to see your ring. Be prepared, ladies!

5 Deep Necklace Designs for Low-Cut Wedding Dresses

So you’ve finally decided to go a little risqué with a low-cut neckline on your wedding day. Fabulous! Now, you just need to find a necklace that matches your daring neckline-- not quite the easiest bridal mission! Yet not to worry. It’s all about mastering the careful balance between finding the right decoration for your neck, while preserving the sexiness of your neckline. You don’t want to cool down the sizzle, right?

Here’s our most popular necklace favorites chosen by fashion-forward brides.

Queen of Hearts

27594B

Keep the things you love closest to you -- and by “things” we mean this gorgeous heart-shaped necklace. It catches everyone’s attention immediately due to its uniquely hollow outline, even though you’ll already be turning heads with that gorgeous low-cut dress! It’s seriously love at first sight, and we’re not talking about the groom.

 

Blue is Best

29024B

For the girl who isn’t afraid to stand out, colored gems are your best friend. Sapphire, a stunning blue gem, and Kate Middleton’s favorite rock, will give you that wow-worthy factor and your big day.

This circular pendant is a unique piece, best suited for the vintage bride, but with that sexy plunging neckline, it works well for the millennial era - you get the best of both worlds!

 

Keeping it Simple

27333B

Whoever came up with the phrase, “less is more” was a genius-- letting your natural beauty shine is way more tasteful than hiding behind heavy mounds and heaps of glitz. Every bride should take note.

Dainty necklaces like this precious piece match beautifully with bare necklines. Featuring dazzling diamonds encased in a teardrop shaped silhouette, it truly defines comes to style and simplicity.

 

Back to Black

28184B

Seeing as you’re already a bit of a daredevil, since you chose a cleavage-baring dress (tastefully, of course), you’ll have no problem taking your edge to the next level. Perhaps sporting black jewelry on your wedding day will spice things up? This subtle hint of black in this pendant necklace will create a dramatic contrast to your white dress, rebelling against the cliché of the all-white blushing bride.

 

Blinded by the Light

28388B

Last on our list, but certainly not least, is this radiant pendant glistening with more diamonds than you can count. Blindly bright with its clear-cut stones, it draws attentions to your face and bare neck. So, if your face wasn’t already glowing with excitement, your jaw-dropping necklace will surely light you up-- and the entire room!

 

Ultimately, you should find a piece that decorates you, while still preserving your bare decollete-- after all, that’s why you chose a dress with a low neckline, right? So, it’s all about balance. Your necklace shouldn’t be too noticeable and cover up your bareness, but it also shouldn’t reveal too much bust-- unless that’s the look you’re going for and in that case, kudos!  Take these necklaces ideas as inspiration for finding that special jewelry piece that matches your dress. Hopefully, it will be another match made in heaven!

5 Engagement Ring Designs That Will Never Go Out of Style

With the ever-changing fashion trends that dictate our jewelry choices, things can get real tacky really quick-- eek! So, how can you make sure you’re not creating these disasters in the engagement ring department? There’s nothing worse than purchasing a piece of jewelry you’re supposed to wear every day and then seeing it in the “Fashion Don’ts” column of Cosmopolitan only a year after you bought it. So, there’s one thing we can all agree on – engagement rings should be timeless. With the help of Gottlieb & Sons, let’s look at the most stylish engagement rings that you won’t have to worry about trading in 10, 20 or even 30 anniversaries from now.

 

Tried and True

29666

Don’t get us wrong, we love a trend-driven bedazzled engagement ring once in a while, but nothing quite says “forever” like a classically cut ring like this one. Complete with a diamond encrusted band, this piece is going to have women from their 20’s to their 80’s gushing about it.

 

Rose Gold Never Retires

29355

Rose gold metal has made an appearance in the jewelry scene all throughout history, so it’s no surprise it’s on our list of engagement ring classics. Gottlieb & Sons has perfected the balance between timeless and trendy with this dazzling rose gold ring. Until death do you part when it comes to this beautiful piece!

 

Eternal Obsession

29491

They say obsession isn’t healthy, but when it comes to this ring, it’s hard to avoid. This piece is classically elegant in every way with its heavenly halo and perfectly cut round diamond. Ultimately, its femininity and grace will never die, starting from your early years as a newlywed to the journey of marriage ahead.

 

Three for Me, Please

29178

This trifecta of diamonds couldn’t be more timeless if it tried. With a stunning arrangement of two precious sparklers between a central knockout diamond, it’s sheer elegance far surpasses the limitations of trends. In the world of engagement rings, this design has us saying, “if you like it then you should’ve put a (deposit) on it”.

 

Happily Ever After with Emeralds

29748

This sophisticated design will never make the “out of style” list. Its elegant emerald cut offers a vintage essence, combined with a modern halo to create a unique combo of old and new. For girlie girls, it may be reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’s style, so if you love Breakfast at Tiffany’s, you know what it means to be classically chic.  That’s how you know this baby will withstand the test of time-- just like her little black dress!

 

Our final words: don’t choose an engagement ring based on this season’s hottest trends, or even this year’s most popular designs. We all make mistakes, especially in the fashion world, but you can’t go wrong with engagement ring styles that will never go out of style. Remember, diamonds are forever – or at least these classic ones are.

Top Engagement Ring Styles for the Anti Girly Girl

So you're not a girly girl, but a woman through and through. While other ladies might be bedazzling themselves from head to toe in diamond earrings and extravagant bangle bracelets, you might be more of the hemp and beads type of gal. Not to worry! The thought of now having to wear a ring on your finger forever might freak you out a little, but you can relax with the help of Gottlieb & Sons. We promise it won't be pink or flowery. Deep breaths!

 

Bigger isn’t Always Better

29226

There's a common misconception when it comes to engagement rings that the bigger the bling, the nicer the ring...and while there's nothing wrong with giant diamonds, these things just aren't for the tomboy type. But that’s not to say you can’t add a little sparkle without blinding everyone you wave at. Thin bands with diamond accents like this one can be just the right amount of glimmer you need to feel feminine without going over the top.

 

Something Sapphire

29654

Just like it’s now totally acceptable to rock a pantsuit to work instead of a dress, you can wear a more subtle engagement ring that doesn’t scream girly girl. This gorgeous ring with sapphire accents is perfect for the woman who embraces the fact that she may not be all florals and frills, but she still has great taste in jewelry.

 

Shoot for Gold

29269

The anti girly girl isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty, so choosing a ring with fewer details is a must. For every groove in your ring, that’s another minute you’re going to spend cleaning gunk out of it, and as a famous meme once said, “ain’t nobody got time for that”. If you’re the type of girl that also tends to appreciate quality over quantity, opt for a simple band with a beautiful center solitaire diamond like this one.

 

Three’s Company

25593

One of the best things about the non-girly girl personality is that you’re practical. You’re not going to wear a skirt you can barely walk in, and you’re definitely not going to wear a ring that’s going to get caught on everything and get in your way. Choosing a ring with a smooth band and embedded diamonds like this gorgeous trifecta of awesomeness is exactly what you need.

 

Strikingly Solid

29229

Does shopping for a ring make you want to tie up your running shoes and run for the hills? We promise there’s something for everyone, even the girl who isn’t a fan of all the fanciness. This gorgeous thick banded ring is strong and beautiful, just like its soon to be owner (lookin’ at you!).

 

It doesn’t matter if the other girls have always fantasized about their engagement rings-- sometimes the best decisions are clean-cut and practical, just like these options. Your ring can be simple and easy-to-wear, while still being as gorgeous as anyone else’s. You can truly have the best of both worlds!

5 Jewelry Looks for the Simple Bride

Finding the perfect pieces for the simple bride might seem like anything BUT simple when you have to wade through all the big, bold and sometimes boisterous bridal jewelry. If you’re not feeling the Kim Kardashian-esque type of bling there’s no need to panic—hidden behind all the glitz and glam are a selection of understated but sophisticated ornaments that are perfect for the more elemental woman. Keep in mind that simple does not mean you have to limit yourself, there are tons of trinkets from Gottlieb & Sons to suit your minimalist needs. So buckle up, even though we’re going to try not to make this too much of a wild ride.

 

Classic with an Edge

28668

This gorgeous twist on a classic solitaire engagement ring is a breath of fresh air in a world of competition for who has the biggest rock. Encased in a bed of diamonds, this simplistic and sultry ring will draw attention without distracting from the exquisiteness of the girl who’s wearing it (that’s right, we’re talking about you!).

 

Toned Down Distinct

28571B

Chunky bridal jewelry is so 2016, and this year if you want something a little more unique but still inconspicuous, choose a necklace with a distinguished shape like this beauty. Ever heard the expression “the beauty lies in the details”? This piece vouches for exactly that. You’ll be low-key while impressing everyone with its vintage details and its different shape. We are seriously obsessed!

 

Slender Sparkles

29476B

The best thing about more subdued wedding day pieces is that they put the focus on what’s important—your beautiful face AND the fact that you’re not going to be forever alone! Now THAT’s a celebration in and of itself. Try out thinner hoop earrings like these little miracle workers and you’ll have the perfect combination of minimal and magical. They scream “I’m gorgeous without trying too hard”, which is exactly what you want to aim for—effortless beauty.

 

Simply Solitaire

28429

Less is definitely more when it comes to a modest engagement ring. They say to appreciate the simple things in life, but keep in mind that simple doesn’t equal ugly. Clean lines and classic cuts are where it’s at, so rocking a solitaire ring like this is exactly the way to go for the more conservative chick. This ring is a minimalist bride’s dream in literally every way.

 

Beautifully Blended

29714B

Just because you’re a bride who appreciates understated pieces doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. This gorgeous mixed metal bracelet will seriously go with anything and everything (ok maybe not those hideous feather earrings that used to be in, but you should throw those out anyway). It’s not too showy, but it’s not boring enough to make us yawn. Score!

 

Engagement is a time to focus on the big picture and not fret too much about the ring, especially for the bride who likes to keep things simple. Look at it this way: bridal jewelry shopping is only one step in planning a wedding, so you don’t want to complicate things already or it’ll be bridezilla mayhem. Just have fun with it and try to find minimalist pieces that match your style, while looking forward to marrying the one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life (kidding, but not really)!

Classic Necklace Styles for the Mother of the Bride

Your precious baby is getting married to the love of her life…wow, does time ever fly! But just because everyone’s getting older doesn’t mean you can’t still turn heads as you glide down the aisle. As the mother of the bride, you are the second most important lady-of-the-hour and you’ve got to look the part. Plus, you deserve to be pampered with the finest jewelry…I mean you DID raise her after all! So how can we celebrate this hot mama? Check out these gorgeous necklaces from Gottlieb & Sons.

 

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

29294B

For the mother of the bride, borrow your inspiration from vintage styles, in the most stunning way. Essentially, you want to show you’re a classic lady with a love for finery and elegance. This beautiful haloed blue sapphire piece would look darling around any MOTB’s neck, and if you’re wearing a blue dress, even better!

 

Religious

29574B

This gorgeous cross pendant encrusted with diamonds is meant for the traditional mother of the bride who still likes a bit of bedazzling. Pretty much, if you’re a devout lady who also speaks Chanel, you’re a fashion-forward conservative who needs to shine! So go ahead and combine your two faves for the big day: style and faith (okay, and your daughter, of course).

 

Pretty and Pear-Shaped

29171

If you’re a fun mama who prefers fat sparklers to dainty accents, we’ve got just the thing for you! Go for a classy gemstone that gives a little pop of color. This pear-shaped piece with a gorgeous yellow diamond is all you need to feel special.

This gorgeous piece exquisitely captures the allure of Victorian art, but also carries some big-time personality. It features shimmering outer diamonds and ornate detailing in the middle! Heritage pieces like this one are like an aged fine wine; it never goes out of style and makes you feel all tingly inside.

 

Yay for Pavé

28360B

After the wedding, you can wear it casually by pairing it with a v-neck shirt and you’ll be good to go!

You don’t want to pull the #1 mistake for any MOTB and go overboard with the glitz and glam. So choose any of these necklaces to feel both memorable and stylish, the ultimate combo to ace your look.

6 Rules to Live by When Choosing an Engagement Ring

You’ve already chosen the guy, the hardest part, now you just need the bling to seal the deal. No biggy, right? Wrong! Like every picky bride-to-be, you’ll want to navigate your options with a clear agenda and list of priorities. Fortunately, with the help of Gottlieb & Sons, you can collect the ultimate tips for sifting your way through thousands of rings and come out with the winner. Here we go, ladies!

 

Personality is Everything

29662

A ring can be super beautiful and glamorous, but if it lacks personality, it can get boring really quick. Sigh! It’s important to choose a ring that’s meant for YOU, and not necessarily the ring that has the most pins on a bridal board. Basically, if the ring doesn’t capture your unique flare, you’re going to fall out of love with your sparkler fast! So, to avoid a casual fling with your ring, find the one that’s going to be a relationship for the long haul.

 

Shape Up or Ship Out

29519

The number 1 thing that gives a ring its overall “look” is the diamond’s shape. Are you a fan of the oval style? radiant or princess cut? Or maybe heart-shaped suits your fancy. Whatever shape you choose, make sure it bodes well with your hand shape. If you have long, slender fingers you can go more round, but if your hands are on the stubbier side, try to go for straighter lines that will elongate your hands like this one from Gottlieb & Sons.

 

Mull over the Metal

29792

Once you’ve selected your diamond shape, you’re going to want to choose your metal wisely. Think of what color metal you tend to wear the most. Your engagement ring doesn’t always have to match, but it’s best to try to choose a ring that goes well with a lot of your other pieces. White gold and rose gold are both very popular colors for 2017, but you also need to think of your long-term commitment. Wear gold and silver equally? Choose a mixed band like this knockout.

 

Don’t Break Your Budget

Weddings are an expensive time for all of those involved, so remember that the engagement ring is just the start. Set a reasonable budget and choose a ring within it. You can also work with your Gottlieb & Sons retailer to make sure your dream ring doesn’t break the bank (and your honeymoon savings).

 

Pick the Right Setting

29427

A beautiful diamond can go from a 10 to a 3 if it’s encased in uncreative “meh” filigree. It’s like having a great figure and then wearing a paper bag—it does nothing for your shape! So, don’t make the mistake of underdressing your diamond and give it the outfit it deserves!

 

Don’t Rush It

Last but certainly not least…TAKE YOUR TIME! This isn’t like you’re going to the store because you ran out of calorie-free sweetener— you’re going to be wearing this piece for a long time, and so the worst thing you can do is rush this process. Spend lots of effort collecting images and consulting your friends, so you feel confident about your final selection.

 

Try to think of this process as less of a chore and more of a shopping trip. Have some fun with it and remember at the finish line there’s a dazzling ring waiting for you (oh and a dashing man to put it on your finger!).

How to Take the Perfect Engagement Selfie

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody’s there to Instagram it, did it really fall? The answer is definitely no. So, now that we’ve established nothing really exists unless it’s online, you’re going to want to post THE perfect picture when you’re announcing your engagement.  A winning engagement post is one that sends hearts soaring and comments bursting your page, designating you with “it girl” status for at least the next week. So, if you’re thinking all it takes is the right filter and a newly bleached smile, you’re in for a much-needed surprise.

 

The Mani

29775

Nothing showcases that engagement ring more than a beautiful mani, and nothing ruins an engagement ring more than unpolished fingers. So if he proposed while your hands and nails looked like they’ve just been through 60 hours of handy work, you’re going to need to call and book an emergency manicure ASAP. Call in a favor if you have to, because this is the very first thing you need to do! There’s no sense in getting a rock like this one by Gottlieb & Sons just to hide it behind poorly manicured nails!

 

Let’s Get Technical: The Angle and the Lighting

29748

Just like the wrong angle can quickly change your single chin to a double, it can also take your 2 carat ring to a solid 1. You’ve earned this ring by being exceptional wifey material, and you definitely want to show it off. Taking the photo from above is going to be the most flattering angle for your hand, and for the bling.

Also, don’t keep your followers in the dark when it comes to your engagement ring picture. Nobody wants to see a blurry, dimly lit photo any more than they want to see another wannabe Kim Kardashian. Stick to natural light and take the photo by a window! Hint: Diamonds cut like this one by Gottlieb & Sons reflect light the best so they photograph really well!

 

The Background

 

Please, step AWAY from the busy floor tile and your messy bed. You want the ring to be the center of attention, so it’s super important to keep the background elegant and simple. This type of background will help draw more attention to your prized sparkler!

Try floating your hand above a marble countertop, a white wall or even your car steering wheel (granted it doesn’t have some flashy steering wheel cover). If you want to be real cute, try taking it on your new fiancé’s knee, just make sure he’s wearing some nice jeans or a suit!

Accessorize your Shot

29659

If you want to take your creativity to the next level with your IG announcement, show off your new bridal bling with a pastel-coloured clutch, a bouquet or even a coffee cup (just make sure it’s a cute one…aka avoid the McCafe cups please). Need an example? Check out above- Hillary Bontempo’s snap from her Instagram where she shows off her fave sunglasses along with her new favorite jewelry piece. You can also achieve a similar statement with this gorgeous engagement ring by Gottlieb & Sons…bonus!

 

Remember, practice makes perfect so don’t be afraid to take 100 pictures of the same engagement pose. Ultimately, that’s what everyone does anyways, so chug some caffeine, grab your man, and snap, snap away!
