Julie Romanenko, designer of the Just Jules collection, looks for unique gemstones around which she creates beautiful jewelry with a truly organic feel. She uses recycled gold for all of her pieces. ” As I was always shopping antique shows for my Incarnations vintage locket collection, I started collecting vintage elements that I could re-use to create bridal rings. I pride myself on making rings that always have textured shanks. There is not one that is a plain boring shiny band. They feature mostly floral motifs, but there is some very distinctive Art Deco inspiration going on.”
Julie picks the ring above as her ultimate favorite from the collection: “It is a big, impressive ring, the shank is created from a vintage bar pin. One half has gorgeous floral engraving and the other side is all full cut pave diamonds. It is just lovely.”.
Prices start at $440 for a thin textured wedding band.
