Wedding Jewelry 101: Perfectly Matched Rings for the New England Bride

Calling all fabulous New England brides – this one’s for you. Because today we’re teaming up with one of our fave jewelry stores, Long’s Jewelers, to break down that age old question: which wedding band + ring combo should I choose? From classic solitaires to eternity bands to yellow gold beauties, we’ve got your answers. Scroll below to find the one perfect for you and yours.

The Classic Pairing

New England brides are known for their classic meets rustic chic style; we all know that. And when it comes to wedding jewelry, there’s nothing that falls within that category more than a single solitaire engagement ring paired with a breathtaking eternity band. Perfect for the bride who dreams of a Grace Kelly-esque wedding (read: all of us), it’s a look that will never go out of style. Sooo incredibly timeless.

Modern Yellow Gold Pairing

If you thought that yellow gold was reserved for your mother, grandma or friend who said “I do” in the 80’s, think again, loves… yellow gold is back with a seriously stunning vengeance. We promise. Long’s Jewelers suggests pairing this sweet metal with a modern halo and then adding a unique (+ drop-dead gorgeous) infinity swirl band for a perfectly awesome update to the traditional. We are so on board with that.

The “Boston” Ring

Fun fact of the day? The classic three-stone ring was created in the great, great city of Boston (we’re sort of partial), which makes it THE quintessential engagement ring for all of New England. Even better? This awesome setting allows you to mix and match with stones… use your mother’s, your grandmother’s, your mother-in-law’s… or your own. And when it comes to pairing this Beantown Beauty with a wedding band, Long’s Jewelers suggest a bead set diamond eternity band for an amazing look.

A Feminine Touch

We love, love, love a rose gold setting, especially one that has been paired with a white gold metal. It’s a mix and match we’re totally on board with and when it comes to romance, well… it doesn’t get any better. Try one of Long’s Jewelers awesome halo engagement rings with a stunning oval diamond (sooo pretty) and adding a rose gold halfway diamond band. The results are flawless.

From halo engagement rings with intricate detailing to bezel set diamond eternity bands, finding that perfect pairing that evokes the beauty of yesterday is as simple as saying “YES!” to the one you love.

A Yacht Club Wedding with a New Spin on Nautical

The practice of planning perfect parties is very much alive and well when it comes to the Newport Yachting Center Marina. Take this lovely affair captured by Elizabeth LaDuca as the pretty little proof. For it’s nautical meets Newport and we’ve got it all waiting for you to fall madly in love with via The Vault!


From Elizabeth LaDucaSiobhan and David had the quintessential Newport wedding, with nods to Vermont to represent the groom’s roots. Siobhan spent the morning getting ready in the home of a childhood friend, surrounded by her family, beautiful natural light and gorgeous ocean views. Her bridesmaids wore mismatched sea-foam Amsale gowns, complemented perfectly by organic floral bouquets of cream, green and blue. Siobhan wore a classic Peter Langner bridal gown, complete with a delicate embellished belt and satin rose-petal Badgley Mischka heels.

A heartfelt ceremony took place in their church, and guests enjoyed Del’s frozen lemonade while mingling after the ceremony. Their reception was at the beautiful Newport Yachting Center, where they treated 200 of their closest friends and family to a luxurious celebration under a Sperry tent and along the docks amongst the yachts.

Each place setting was decorated with a custom bottle of Vermont maple syrup, donned with the couple’s custom crest created by one of their mutual friends. It was truly a stunning event, full of elegant touches, subtle references to the oceanside setting and lots of love and laughter.

From the Bride… It was important to my husband and me that we draw from the natural beauty of Rhode Island and showcase what makes Newport so special. The Bohlin is already such a beautiful venue so we pulled colors from the buttery hues of the marina’s sails, the grey and blue tones of the ocean, the glimmer of lights on the water, as well as the overall airiness of Newport in July. We used these tones to guide our choice of flowers, bridesmaid dresses, votive candles, and suits. Petite bottles of Vermont Maple Syrup donning a tag with an anchor transitioning into an Evergreen was our gift to the guests and a way for us to give a nod to Vermont-my husband’s home state. Overall, we really wanted the feel of the wedding to be light and lovely; to give our guests the experience of a day on the water, rather than the formality of a structured reception.
