NYC jeweller Bliss Lau revels in this alchemy. Her fastidious selection of gems and her innovative design techniques and stylistic precision, belie an eye, skill and sorcery of a truly beyond realm multi-disciplinarian. Think coloured gems, in a flawless array of cuts, in architectural settings you won’t find anywhere else.

It’s no secret creatives often prefer to be surrounded by white. It evokes a feeling of limitlessness, of purity, peace and calm, the unblemished canvas of possibility and potential, the basis for unbound creativity and clear thinking. It’s also no surprise that historically it was, and still is, the preferred option for brides and couples beginning the journey of marriage.
Stepping into the flagship boutique of designer Rime Arodaky in Paris, and peering behind the scenes of her atelier recently, we were immediately welcomed and comforted by the familiarity of the serenity she has created for herself to design from, and the experiential environment she has created for her brides. Peppered with details, textures, and elements of her style, it is a place of tranquil beauty and osmotic inspiration.

Forever drawn to the beauty of contrasts and the nuances of juxtaposition, we love the irony of a statement piece espoused with disciplined minimalism. The way a red lip can look undone against a bare face, how a hastily pinned chignon can edge out a bold silhouette, and the infinite interplay of the female form as canvas for design, and design as canvas for self-expression.
Loving these jewels by Amandina Joyeria, who themselves, are driven by the unique beauty of Mestizo traditions and embrace their heritage in a contemporary fruition of design. Capturing a quietness of detail with their artisanal handmade filigree pieces, at an affordable price point, we’re picturing a curation of these jewels adorning a vivacious bridal party (bridesmaid gift alert!) and as a timeless memento of the wedding day for years to come.

Picture sprawling lawns, towering pines, a magnificent 18th century Dutch Colonial stone mansion framed in foliage almost fibre optic as the seasons change.

With event spaces, hotel rooms, and a ceremony backdrop in virtually every direction you turn, the estate is private and luxurious yet relaxed and charming. To enquire about working with Hasbrouck House for your wedding, see here.
