A Wedding Weekend in the Adirondack Mountains #LoveGold

IMG_4708 IMG_4725 IMG_4704 IMG_4760 IMG_4770 IMG_4757

A weekend wedding in the Adirondack Mountains required some quick, light packing.  With planned activities that ranged from kayaking and boating, to a round of mini golf, to a church wedding ceremony, and followed by a gorgeous wedding reception with incredible mountain views, my gold jewelry wardrobe had to be well-planned.  It was necessary for each piece of jewelry to be able to work throughout the wide range of activities this short trip called for.  

With a few staples like my engagement ring, diamond X earrings and gold Victorian bangle that I wore throughout, I found that the key to picking the perfect accessories for this trip was to rotate a few statement gold rings.  I packed a few of my favorites, some “oldies but goodies” and one new ring--an 18k yellow gold Hope, Peace, Love “word” ring--my latest auction score!  It came from Hampton Estate Auction, which just opened its doors last year, located in Lahaska, Pennsylvania.

For the wedding ceremony, I wore a bright red lace dress, which I accessorized with my three staples, and a pair of gold and ruby channel set eternity bands and a wide yellow gold cut-out band in between on my left hand.  My right hand sported a trio of gold rings--my HOORSENBUHS Phantom ring, Amanda Hunt Two Moon ring, and my pinky twist ring from Halleh Jewelry.  I loved this look, and it worked well for this special occasion.  

The next day, we had lots of outdoor activities planned--kayaking, store hopping downtown, enjoying the views of the Saranac Lake and Lake Placid.  Again, I used my three staples and added a few gold statement rings.  As per usual, I packed all the wrong clothes, not being familiar with the cool lake breeze that makes the temperatures a lot colder than what is expected.  We wandered into an Adirondack-themed store and picked out warm cardigan sweaters that can be customized with patches.  The sweater ended up being the best purchase ever as it kept me contently warm and went perfectly with my gold rings--stacked on the left hand, two rings worn from the other day--HOORSENBUHS Phantom ring and the wide cut-out band.  On the right hand my new Hope, Peace, Love “word” ring and Laura Tedesco’s L'Infinita ring.

Such a fun weekend spent with my new family, at a place I’ve always wanted to visit.  The Adirondack Mountains are truly a relaxing and breathtaking place, with beautiful views and fresh crisp air.  Nothing makes a trip more complete than family, friends, fun and some gold jewelry!

Jewels at my Doorstep: Halleh Jewelry #LoveGold

IMG_9437 IMG_9146 IMG_9152 IMG_9159 IMG_9409


A new segment of Gem Gossip, called “Jewels at my Doorstep” brings you gorgeous jewelry mixed with my artistic photography!  

Seeing a piece of jewelry or a designer’s collection in person, rather than online, can give you an entirely different feeling.  In this setting, designers loan me their masterpieces, I try them on, play with them, really feel the way they look...and then photograph the jewelry based on what it portrays to me.  And, yes you’re right, it is entirely way too fun!  Hope you enjoy! 


Halleh Jewelry has a hint of exotic with a warm touch of 18k yellow gold.  I was awed by the jewelry’s richness, its Persian influences and trendy, modern flair.  Pulling out eight rings from a package was better than any Christmas morning, and I was immediately inspired by the jewelry.  The hazy glow of the autumn sun in Nashville was the perfect setting for the shoot.  

Designer Halleh Amiralai, has been working on her collection of 18K yellow gold pieces for over five years and was one of the first fine jewelers to be carried by Net-A-Porter. Her designs are also available at Roseark and a few other retail locations.
