Introducing Sera Wedding Band

For some time, we have been asking ourselves the question, Why don't wedding bands ever look like they match the engagement ring?! 

We used this premise as a starting point in the design of a wedding band.  We wanted a ring that can stand alone as a beautiful wedding ring but also can work as a companion ring to the Amare ring. We came up with the Sera ring.  The Sera ring nests into the opening of the Amare ring to become one interlocking ring.  Even by itself, the small twist of the ring gives it a simple statement that is totally unique.

The Sera ring is available in all of our precious metal finishes: silver, 14K plated rose gold, 18K white gold, 18K rose gold, as well as platinum.

 
Sera
from 250.00

The Sera ring is a companion ring to the Amare ring.  The two rings interlocks with each other to form one ring.  It can be used as the matching wedding band for the Amare diamond engagement ring.

Material:

Platinum, Sterling Silver, 18K White/Rose Gold, 14K Plated Rose Gold

Dimensions: 0.9" x 1" x 0.27"

 

Now Introducing The Amare Diamond Ring

Several months ago, we received a request from a client who loved the Amare ring and wanted to have it as a diamond wedding ring. We have been wanting to introduce diamonds to our pieces for some time so it gave us a great excuse to work on it!  Working with our local setter for the past 2 months (as all of our precious metal pieces are produced in DTLA), we are now pleased to introduce the Amare Diamond Ring to our website. We set one of the twisting band with approx. 30 small, round, brilliant cut diamonds (= .5 carat total weight) to highlight the interlocking design of the Amare ring.  The ring is available in Platinum, 18K White Gold and Sterling Silver and includes a custom milled wood display case.  We have already produced them in all three materials and happy to announce that there have been several successful proposals with them! 

Currently in prototyping stage: We are working on a matching wedding band that will nest into this wedding ring as well as a diamond ring with both twisting bands set with diamonds.  Stay tuned...

LACE "Celebration of Women" Series - Adria Tennor

In the year and a half since the collection has launched, I have met so many amazing women who have worn my pieces.  As a way of giving back to the community, I want to feature some of these women who have set their own standards of beauty and grace through their own self expression, personality, and strength of character.  I asked each of them to define beauty for us so that we might gain some insight into these incredible women.

This installment of LACE’s "Celebration of Women" series features Adria Tennor, the co-owner of Barbix Wine Bar, All'Acqua Restaurant and Market Provisions as well as an accomplished actor, writer and director.  We had such a good time at our photoshoot that, in the photo series, I wanted to capture some of the goofy moments of the shoot.

 

Adria Tennor

"I've always found people to be the most beautiful and attractive - I like to say, 'shiny' - when they're being authentically themselves – living in their own joy, their own glee, their own bliss – doing what they're good at doing, doing what they love, and getting off on it, and then sharing that exuberance with others in an authentic, true way - singing a song, cooking a meal, buying stocks, whatever. Listening to one's heart and following it bravely is a really sexy, beautiful way to be, a really sexy, beautiful way to live. And if that bliss connects back to the world and makes it a better, more beautiful place to live, even in the tiniest way, that's good icing on the beauty cake." - Adria Tennor

Adria is wearing Lini earrings and the Prelude and Interlude choker in sterling silver.

LACE "Celebration of Women" Series - Sharon Oyler

I'm very excited to launch LACE's "Celebration of Women" series on Mother's Day with Sharon Oyler, mother of my partner Dwayne Oyler.  In the year and a half since the collection has launched, I have met so many amazing women who have worn my pieces.  As a way of giving back to the community, I want to feature some of these women who have set their own standards of beauty and grace through their own self expression, personality, and strength of character.  I asked each of them to define beauty for us so that we might gain some insight into these incredible women.

"There are no standards for beauty.  To me, beauty is a delicate combination of humility, compassion, and acceptance of all - to the point that everyone feels important.  My goal in life is to be that kind of a person every day." - Sharon Oyler
