#ohwowyes: DIY Sequin Maxi Skirt

DIY Projects

Things are about to get festive, because the party just arrived with this DIY sequin maxi skirt. Who doesn’t love sequins?! We started our 5 Days of DIYS yesterday, and today we’re back for our second one! I adventured my way into sewing in the quest for my holiday sequin skirt even being a beginner a sewer and I’m happy to report that you can totally make one too – and hey, for a fraction of the cost you see anywhere. Chin-chin!

These Snowflake-Inspired Rings Sleigh Every Season

Fashion & Beauty

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these snowflake-inspired rings are so delightful! Joseph Jewelry has done it again with these sparkly stones bursting with character, leaving us entirely smitten. You may not have realized that snowflake rings were at the top of your lust list, but after glimpsing these stunners, you’re sure to be singing a winter tune. And let’s face it, these rings are golden all year round!

Characteristic of snowflakes themselves, you may have noticed that each and every one of these engagement rings is totally unique (this is where we give Joseph Jewelry a pat on the back for their Design Your Own service that’s all about customization). This tool allows you to build your dream ring you thought only imagination could muster – gemstone, shape, setting, band and all! And these mesmerizing snowflake styles are a great place to start.

So close your eyes and think to yourself, what does my dream personalized engagement ring look like? And If you’re hitting a blank now that someone’s introduced you to the existential question that just might keep you up at night, don’t worry. We’ve got your back.

We’re sharing a few customization options to help you channel your inner jeweler (and full disclosure – companies like Joseph Jewelry are awesome sauce because they don’t make you think too hard… it’s all a collaboration with some help from trusted experts!)

Okay, leggo:

Clustered Stones: Take it from us, the more gems, the merrier! We love to see rings with colorful crews dancing around the center stone, patterned or in random arrangements! Take this amethyst, sapphire and diamond cluster engagement ring for example. Don’t you love this color way?!

Modified Halos: Ever heard that diamond halos aren’t limited to a circular shape? You could add all kinds of unique shapes to surround your center stone. We’re particularly suckers for the starburst effect as achieved here in this yellow gold engagement ring with a halo of baguette + round diamonds.

Double Halo: This one deserves its own line, and once you glimpse this pear-shaped beaut, you’ll understand exactly why. Captivatingly dramatic, we love the way the round diamonds contour in a pear-shaped band around the center stone in each parallel row. Halo engagement rings, you win.

Unique Gemstones: It’s no secret that colorful engagement rings make us weak at the knees. Maybe it’s the vintage effect or the story they tell about the wearer’s personality, but you just can’t beat a pretty little tint. Such holds true for this blue topaz ring with a rose gold band and double ring of milgrain beading. It even has matching pendants to complete the set! If you’re an old soul, you certainly can’t go wrong with something like this.

Incorporate your heirlooms: Hey, if your SO has grandma’s ring but you’d love for it to have a bit of personal flair, the option to customize a treasure that already exists is still on the table. This marquise diamond halo engagement ring is the perfect example of such a creation! Joseph Jewelry incorporated a beautiful center marquise diamond that the client provided with a band, setting and delicate halo designed in collaboration with the, too. And if that, my friends, doesn’t blow your mind, we don’t know what will.

Customized band: Sure you could switch up the band color from silver, gold, rose gold.. but why stop there? When a pave diamond band option exists, you welcome it with open arms. At least this couple did! The perfect balance of rock and metal (don’t worry, not music!), we’re obsessed with the final look.

Switch up the cut: We see a lot of brilliant cut diamonds, and while absolutely stunning, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t explore other options! Take the Asscher cut for instance, its step-like placements create multi-level sparkle and only enhance that unique snowflake like effect.

You with us still? We knew you would be! These dreamy gems from Joseph Jewelry are pretty hard to look away from. There’s so much beauty in making something your own, and when it comes to your engagement ring, that’s not something that you should ever have to compromise! So love a ring the way it is or make some tweaks to give it your personal stamp, but whatever you decide, be all in. With such a massive array of options these days, there’s no reason you should ever have to wonder “what if?”.
