Love Wins
For the last several years, the words Alternative Bridal have been bantered about in the jewelry industry.   But w hat exactly does Alternative mean?  Alternative what? Alternative metals? Alternative gemstones? (as in not diamonds?)  

We all recognized that lots of people were getting engaged and married, not just those who wanted the classic diamond solitaire. But  ' Alternative '  never  sounded right to us.

Well, now it's official and as it always will, L ove Wins
From now on, we will just call them ALL wedding or commitment rings. And this month we have a selection of rings that will appeal to anyone who has decided to tie the knot!
