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.

We’re Calling This the Best Christmas Present EVER

The best Christmas present ever? Meeting your soulmate. That’s what happened to Rachel and Jonathan, a seriously sweet duo that happened to meet at a Christmas dinner hosted by friends and spent the remainder of their winter heading to Vermont to cross country ski together. If it sounds like a romantic movie, you are correct… and just wait until you lay your eyes on their stunning West Mountain Inn wedding, all captured perfectly by Nicole Baas Photography. Head to THE VAULT to soak it all in.


From Nicole Baas Photography… I wanted to share this beautiful Vermont wedding filled with soft color, beautiful design, real emotion and a lot of fun.

Rachel and Jonathan make their home in Brooklyn but head to Vermont any chance that they get. Having their wedding in Vermont was a way to share their special place with their friends and family. Everything was beautifully simple and elevated in the most well-designed and thoughtful way. You could tell from the ceremony that Rachel and Jonathan really felt the importance of their wedding day as Jonathan cried watching Rachel walk down the aisle and she burst into tears mid-walk with her father when she saw Jonathan for the first time that day.

From the Bride… Jonathan and I met over a Christmas dinner with friends. We quickly bonded over our love of the outdoors and spent the rest of that winter cross country skiing in southern Vermont every weekend we could manage.

Since that’s where we fell in love, Vermont was the obvious choice for our wedding. The summer months always promise beautiful weather and the mountains are so green and lush. I really had my heart set on doing everything outdoors. The West Mountain Inn was perfect — the property is so beautiful and they have amazing views of the Green Mountains. We held the ceremony in their labyrinth garden with beautiful rolling pastures and mountains as our backdrop. The reception took place on the sprawling lawn next to the barns where we had ample space for a large white tent and plenty of open grass for guests to spread out and enjoy the sunset over the mountains.

I wanted to keep everything for the wedding very simple and romantic. Our flowers were all white and blush but mostly I wanted everything covered in lush greenery to match the scenery. The stand outs were the beautiful garlands our florist put together for the tables and the hanging greenery over the dance floor complete with ivory ribbons and hanging votives. My bridesmaids and I carried beautifully undone bouquets of roses and each girl wore a long blush dress of her own choosing. The guys wore navy blue suits with pink Liberty of London print ties to match the ladies. My dress had a simple silhouette to match the theme but was done in the most beautiful beaded fabric. We were married under an arbor draped with greenery, white hydrangeas, and blush roses in one of the most simple, heartfelt ceremonies I could’ve imagined– we both cried most of the way through it!

Each of our 94 guests were given a small bottle of local maple syrup, tied to which were their escort cards done in beautiful navy blue calligraphy. They traveled from all over the country and we were so grateful to have everyone we love in one place. We had an amazing 8-piece band that was absolutely phenomenal — the dance floor was packed all night and there were audible groans from the crowd when they announced the party was over.
