Say "I Do" with The Eden Collective's Bridal Collection

As much as I needed a bridal selection like this when I first began to even think about engagement rings, I'm glad The Eden Collective is just now launching this fine, curated selection.  I wouldn't know which to choose, there are so many stunning, heirloom pieces ready to be treasured for a lifetime. The collection is a natural extension of Eden's desire to provide unique and personally meaningful pieces to her clients. It focuses on bridal options, with a hand-selected bunch of original antique and vintage pieces, coinciding amongst some new pieces created with antique inspiration and often cast from original pieces. Wedding band options are plentiful, along with lots of alternative engagement ring choices--something that has been buzzing a lot around the world of all things bridal as of late. And I'm totally on board with it! Future brides are no longer wanting a solitaire diamond with a plain gold band. Even more so, they don't even want diamonds! They want different, unique, one-of-a-kind...

Here's where The Eden Collective's new bridal collection comes into play just in the knick of time.

Eden says, "I think the bridal market has expanded beyond the diamond solitaire “box" to encompass individual expression and a desire for deeper personal meaning in one’s ring choices. It’s like wearing white after Labor Day: the old rules are obsolete and speak to a different time. There’s value in tradition certainly, and beautiful sparkling diamonds will always have a place (though I do prefer the antique cuts) but I think the time has come for acceptance of personal choice and the myriad of variation that can make your engagement ring uniquely yours."

We couldn't agree any louder and prouder. To start the collection, The Eden Collective created the stunning boulder opal ring, the first within a series of original pieces which will focus and bring to light gemstones and their romantic gemlore. Gemstones on deck? Eden excitedly says, "Turquoise, opal, moonstone, amethyst, ruby, sapphire... Gems that have symbolic reference to love, fidelity, patience, communication, truthfulness, passion and nurturing affection: all the things a happy successful relationship is based on."

If you're currently scoping the jewelry world for your future engagement ring or wedding band...or even a special anniversary piece of jewelry, make sure to check out the new collection from The Eden Collective. Find meaning behind the gemstone, discover something deeper than "just a ring" and create lasting memories.

Gem Gossip Visits The Eden Collective in Philadelphia, PA

I've been such a fan of The Eden Collective since she first launched her Etsy shop back in 2013 which she started as a hobby.  Not even two years later, her five-year plan has now turned into a budding business and she is transitioning to making antique jewelry her full-time gig!  And it is not a bad gig, considering it is her passion and she has been surrounded by antiques her whole life--it is only fitting!  Her taste in all things old and vintage is impeccable--every piece in her inventory is incredibly covetable and her natural knack for curating great pieces is perfect for her fans and followers who can't wait to see what she finds next. I am right there with them!  Whether it is a trip to Brimfield or a day spent bidding at auction, antique jewelry collectors are left clamouring at what she will bring to her online shop. 

I couldn't have been more excited to meet my virtual antique-loving friend and get the opportunity to see her inventory in person. Lining Philadelphia’s straight, gridiron streets, an iconic row house was the setting for our meetup. Built during the early 1900s and fully decorated and restored with treasures Eden has picked up throughout her life.  I was greeted by her adorable dog Darla and a few of her cats strolled in from time-to-time. She had several trays full of rings, which immediately had my attention!  One tray with all conversion pieces, one tray with engagement rings and alternative engagement options, and another tray with a wide variety of all-original antique pieces--like signets, large onyx rings, gemstone rings, REGARD rings, portrait rings, intaglios and lots of gorgeous agate pieces.  I surely was in heaven!  I got to try on some of her pieces and style a few different looks.  

Eden is excited about her bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces that are a part of her limited edition, original designs based on the pieces she has gathered over the years. Some great examples are her bug midi-rings and her Amor ring, which is cast in recycled 10k yellow gold with a warm rose tint, after a vintage ring found in Merida in the Yucatan Penninsula!  More pieces are being added to the collection.  She specializes in alternative engagement rings, not to mention customer service, with emphasis placed on the idea of repurposing and rediscovering the value of things once loved, giving them new purpose and new appeal.

The Eden Collective recently reached a milestone on Instagram, gaining 5k followers and is hosting a really great giveaway to celebrate. Up for grabs is a 10k gold Amor ring from Eden's original designs collection.  All you have to do to be entered is follow @theedencollective on Instagram, find the Giveaway photo and repost it, hashtag your entry #amor5000 and tag 3 friends!  The contest ends at the end of this month!
