Whenever someone asks me where they should look for unique engagement rings or wedding bands, Bario-Neal is always at the top of my list. Handcrafted in Philadelphia with reclaimed precious metals, ethically sourced stones, and low-impact, environmentally conscious practices, Bario-Neal jewelry is both gorgeous and one of a kind.

I love the juxtaposition of classic expectations with totally modern design in these pieces…

If you’re in the Philadelphia area, you can actually stop by the Bario-Neal studio storefront, but if not, their shiny new website makes it easier than ever to shop online. And if you love their style but don’t see exactly what you’re look for, Bario-Neal will work closely with you to create a custom engagement ring, wedding band – or even redesign heirloom jewelry!

Update! This contest has been extended until Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 11:59PM PDT. Read on for the full details.

Everyone is talking about The Great Gatsby these days (how could you not?!), so it feels like the perfect time to share this gorgeous customized invitation suite from Minted with you. It’s a beautiful example of how one bride, starting with the Ascot Chic invitations, used Minted‘s customization option to bring her Great Gatsby themed vision to life.

Minted Minted

After falling in love with Coralie Bickford-Smith’s cover of the classic novel, the bride asked the Perfection Team at Minted to customize her wedding place cards, menu, and program to match the theme while incorporating elements from her dream invitation.

Minted Minted

Using Minted‘s online screensharing tool, Perfection Live Studio, the bride was able to collaborate directly with her designer to see changes in real time, including custom color and design elements that matched the book cover inspiration. The result was a completely hand-tailored and fully coordinated invitation suite, from RSVP to menu to place cards. (Love these day-of details? Since they were all completely customized you won’t find them on the site, but contact Minted and they can customize them just for you!)
