Everybody believes that their wedding is going to be some sort of fairy tale romantic event until they get down to the nuts and bolts about planning it. There are far more practical considerations to be made in order to make sure that not only the big day goes off magically, but also the marriage itself is one that is as wonderful as possible. This is true even for what most people think of as the most romantic aspect of the wedding day. The list of what to consider when buying wedding rings may be short, but it is important.

The first consideration needs to be about the marriage and not the wedding. In other words, the diamond wedding rings need to be wedding rings that both people can live with. They are going to be looking at them every day for the rest of their lives. Fads come and go, and it can make for a long life if two or three years after the wedding day the rings look sadly out of date.

Another aspect of why style is important is because there should be a consistency between the engagement ring and the bride’s wedding band as well as between hers and her husband’s wedding ring. One way couples ensure that this happens is by buying their diamond wedding rings as a set with the engagement ring. At the very least – and especially if a significant time has elapsed between the proposal and when the wedding happens – it is best to return to the original jewelry store with the engagement ring so that prospective wedding bands can be matched up.

A final consideration should be given to the possibility of waiting and celebrating the first year of marriage by exchanging diamond anniversary rings. Not only does this help to spread out the expenses over a longer period of time, freeing up additional funds for the wedding itself, it also creates the impression of a magical yearlong celebration of the wedding.

People always want to know what to consider when buying wedding rings. The most important consideration should be to not think of them as wedding bands or diamond wedding rings, but rather as diamond marriage rings. Be sure to select rings not just for that first day, but for all the days of the future.


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have perfect hair and wear jewelry that complements it? A lot of people are enthusiastic about jewelry and hair color alike, and even though grossly overlooked, hair color can change your complete look. The best thing is you can wear jewelry that brings out the best in you – your skin color, hair color and clothes.

Here is an article from Mark Schneider Design that guides you to choose the right jewelry for your hair color, or vice versa.


How To Match Jewelry and Hair Color

Hair color and jewelry are unlikely allies. Although it is often overlooked, hair color is a large part of a person’s overall appearance. As such, it is important to consider your hair color when choosing outfits, hats and especially jewelry. Because hair and jewelry share the same space on the face, it is critical that they co-exist in harmony. Even beyond that, it’s important that they complement one another. There are countless guides for matching skin color with jewelry and outfits with accessories, but very few address the importance of hair color. To enhance your overall ensemble and create a cohesive look that flatters, follow the simple guide below.

1)      Blonde

For blonde-haired beauties, the possibilities are endless. Most colors look great with fair hair because it is versatile and not too imposing. However, there are some colors that especially stun. Blue hued gemstones like sapphire and blue topaz look breathtaking with blonde hair because they serve as a subtle contrast against the lightness of the locks. Greens look great as well. If you’re feeling bold, opt for orange gemstones that will create a healthy glow when contrasted with fair skin and hair. Click here for full post

Finding the perfect vintage or estate piece of jewelry can be a treasure hunt!  I love to see the unique and one-of-a-kind pieces and imagine the story behind each one…where have they come to get here?  The icing on the cake is choosing something special to take home and continuing its story.

Not many people know this, but my late grandfather “papa” owned a small repair and jewelry store downtown many many years ago. I fell in love with antique pieces as a young girl rummaging through what was left from his business, and the gifts he had given my nana and mom over the years. There was one diamond princess ring in particular that I was given on my 16th birthday. It was handed down two generations and remains so very special to me! I still wear it on special occasions.

For two days only, August 14th and 15th, we will have the largest selection of estate and vintage jewelry Steel’s have ever seen! Come ‘rummage’ with us as we see what comes in that weekend.  Bring any favorite pieces that you have collected over the years and share with us your story…we can’t wait! Take a peek of some of the amazing pieces below that will be in our store.

I picked three of them to share with you today…I very well can’t show them all at once, right?!?!  😉  

The first is a brand new line we are introducing….Meira T.  This designer is known for her asymmetrical lines and natural yet edgy creations. Her collection reflects her European upbringing, her love for fashion, and her passion for world travel. The diamonds and unique stones are set in such an elegant and feminine style- you can wear them from day to evening with no problem. A definite fave of the Steel’s Girls!
