Every bride wants her big day to be as special as possible, which might be why the cookie cutter affairs of old have given way to a new era of wedding personalization (The Knot just released an entire issue dedicated to it). Today’s brides are looking for details that feel personal and unique to them, and jewelry company Loren Hope is offering exactly that.
Loren Hope, created by artist Loren Barham and sold in Nordstrom, is known for its statement baubles, which feature multi-colored stones and vintage-inspired details. Now, with its bespoke bridal service, the brand is offering brides (and their bridesmaids) a chance to custom create what they describe as “heirloom-quality” jewels to wear down the aisle.
So how does it work? For starters, the brand’s bridal specialist asks that you supply a collection of inspiration images, including details from flowers to the color scheme, to get a sense of your vibe and aesthetic. With your budget in mind, the designers will put together a “preliminary palette of stones and colors” to start the process. From there, you get three design options — you can choose earrings, bracelets, and/or necklaces — as well as a follow-up phone call to discuss tweaks. A sample mock-up is then made and images are sent for your approval.
A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to start the process, and is applied to the final cost if you decide to continue after the initial consultation. To get an idea, bridal earrings range from $128-$298, bracelets range from around $98- $148, and necklaces start at about $150. The whole experience takes roughly five to six weeks and though it isn’t exactly inexpensive, that’s just the cost of getting exactly what you want, made especially for you.
