Let’s say we add a little sparkle to the blog today. When it comes to commitment, bridal, and fine jewelry, you need options: stones, styles, colors, shapes, you gotta see it all. That’s why we love these rings by Anna Sheffield. Their mega-collection of one-of-a-kind designs created with quality, conflict-free diamonds and rare, precious, and antique gemstones pretty much has you covered in regards to the whole choices thing. Sure, it doesn’t make reaching a decision any easier, but hey, variety is the spice of life, right?

Each ring is designed with a mix of vintage + contemporary influences, for beautiful, surprising jewelry every time. Plus, each of the engagement pieces stack with the commitment bands—a totally unique and awesome feature to consider. We’re particularly smitten with the gorg stacking sets below:

1. The Carousel / 2. Sheaves Band Trilogy / 3. Curve Trilogy / 4. The Chrysler / 5. Rivet Set / 6. Crescent Set / 7. The Honeymoon / 8. Hammer Texture Band Set / 9. The Mabel / 10. The 3 promise set

Inspired by different elements, from Art-deco era architecture like The Chrysler to timeless beauty like the Hammer Texture Band Set, each collection looks beautiful displayed individually, but creates one breathtaking unit when stacked together…  A nice little metaphor, don’t you think?

Encircled with prong-set diamonds, this double banded harness Attelage Emerald cut Diamond Ring is a chic and modern alternative to the staple engagement ring.

The aptly named Theda Ring is a truly splendorous piece evocative of it’s namesake, a star of the Silent Film Era. The layout of the five diamonds in this design call to mind the glorious cinemas in which her silent films were screened, and an elongated rose cut center is reminiscent of the the marquees that announced them.

The Tiny Wheat Engagement Ring is set low to the finger with a delicately tapered pave band. Select a half  carat white, champagne or black diamond center stone to create the perfect token of your affection.

The Moonstone Bea engagement ring features a stunning Emerald cut Moonstone set in an A.S. bridal signature basket- 10 prongs of mixed flat and delicate round. Inverted set white diamond trillions on each side lead the eye from the perfectly proportioned center to the subtle knife edge band.

Luna, the second of our rings with a divine namesake, is made in Rose Gold with a stunning, smoky-hued Champagne Diamond held aloft by an architectural setting that calls to mind a palace or place of worship.

3 Stone Hazeline is a corner stone of the Anna Sheffield bridal jewelry collection. A classic style with a delicate silhouette, this timeless design is based on a ring belonging to Anna’s grandmother.

As LA ladies ourselves we may be biased, but we think this bright DTLA wedding captured by Jennifer Emerling of YEAH! Weddings = the perfect party. You don’t need to book a SoCal venue to appreciate how these two planned the whole shindig with their guests in mind, talking deets with Bash Please well in advance so friends + fam from all over the US, Canada, and Australia could gear up for a Cali holiday.

From the bride: We wanted to make sure they enjoyed all California has to offer! I had fun creating a Los Angeles City Adventure Guide and California Dreamin’ mixtape to pop into welcome bags with LA-centric goodies to start them off well! Having been together for over a decade, we swapped any seriousness for an epic party to celebrate our love with great music, great food, and happy dancing vibes!

Illustrator + designer Ngaio had a blast creating a hand-lettered invitation suite and menus, travel guides, place cards, and a mixtape, as well as custom stamps and calligraphy. She says, My favourite element has to be the mad libs rsvp component of the invitations—we got some hilarious responses!

Modern Chicago wedding | Photo by Woodnote Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=75758

Kate + Jeff wanted an urban rustic wedding that would feel like one epic party with all the people they love. Katie explains… We thought a lot about how this was our opportunity to have all of our favorite people in one room and how we really wanted to maximize that. So that meant finding the coolest officiant ever and awesome music and dancing and manhattans and fried chicken and pumpkin pie. And if you mix all of those things with the coolest friends and family it equals SO MUCH FUN. It’s basically science.

We think they’re on to something here, especially the part about the pie. So thrilled we could take a peek into their super fun day with these photos captured by the talented Woodnote Photography.

Katie requested succulents and a light/dark floral mix, and Janessa of Forget Me Knodt got right to work. What a beauty!

Katie’s advice: If you can, write your own vows. It will be so stressful before, but it makes that part of the ceremony so much more personal and lovely. Let me put it this way: I cried when Jeff read his vows the first time. I’ve cried every time I’ve read his vows since then. I’m crying as I write this. And I probably wouldn’t be if we had done traditional vows. So sweet.

From Jeff: What was most incredible to me about our wedding day was the fact that every cliché I had ever heard was absolutely 100% accurate. People would tell me that you are overcome with joy to be surrounded by all of your friends and family who have traveled from near and far. True. People would tell me that it will be the greatest day of my life. True. People would tell me that everything is going to go by so fast and that it is very important to stop and take some time, even if it is just a few seconds, to stand back and enjoy the moment. Also true.

Congrats K + J!
