About Casual Seance
The curation of ethically sourced precious stones plays an essential role in the creation of each Casual Seance piece. Using uncommon stones; diamonds with opalescent hues, sapphires varying in intensity and shade, Lindsay feels the energy of these gems (once a fragment of the Earth), transcends to skin beautifully. A sacred and requisite signature of all Casual Seance pieces.
The Toronto-native and 10-year Brooklyn-expat felt that the jewelry industry was oversaturated with cookie-cutter engagement and wedding rings; so she created the alternative; out of the ordinary, beautifully divergent and almost otherworldly jewels, finding a language that speaks to the uniqueness that we each hold as individuals.
Behind The Brand
Where are your gemstones and diamonds sourced from?
Sourcing gemstones is one of our favourite parts of designing jewelry. The unique characteristics of a gemstone’s natural inclusions, range of color, and imperfections only add to their allure. We work with suppliers that not only share our love of unique gemstones but are also devoted to sustainable and responsible sourcing.
Do you offer a custom design service? If so, how long does it take to make a custom piece?
We love nothing more than creatively collaborating with our clients on custom designs. Depending on the complexity of the design, a custom piece can take anywhere from 3-8 weeks.
What is your most popular piece?
Our Rooney engagement ring is one of our best sellers. It features a teal blue unheated sapphire – which also happens to be one of our most popular gemstones used in bespoke and custom rings.
Our one half + rainbow rings are two of the first pieces we created – they are our go-to for an everyday ring that you will cherish forever!
What advice would you give to a couple looking for their wedding jewelry?
Have fun with it and choose something that YOU will love! Evolving tradition is at the center of everything we do – from reimagining design techniques to celebrating the natural beauty in gemstones. This allows us to create one-of-a-kind rings that celebrate the diversity of contemporary love.
We put all our effort into creating pieces you’ll love, but the real power lies in the meaning they hold for you – so have fun with the process, choose something that is well made, and that will make you smile every time you look at your finger!
What tips do you have for couples to care for their jewelry?
This is something you are going to wear every day, so of course, be careful! To ensure durability, clean your jewelry regularly. Gemstones can become loose over time – so when in doubt, get your jewelry serviced – which we also recommend doing once a year.
Why we love it…
There’s an innate feeling of homage to native American jewelry in Casual Seance’s collections. Each ethically-sourced precious stone is unique and combined unexpectedly to create exceptional pieces.
For the bride….
Drawn to sculptural and artisanal forms, looking for unusual stones and otherworldly jewels. She prefers the out of the ordinary, not the cookie-cutter style of wedding jewelry.
