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.
