WINDSWEPT COASTAL WEDDING INSPIRATION IN OAHU
"This stunning windswept coastal wedding shoot was captured at sunrise on the shores of Oahu by Dallas wedding photographer ALLEN TSAI who worked with Hawaii wedding florist DESIGNS BY HEMINGWAY. Inspired by the coastal blues of the Pacific ocean it features muted tones throughout the florals and styling elements.
From Debbie of DESIGNS BY HEMINGWAY; “In designing the windswept table scape, I was inspired by the colour palettes of the ocean and a beautiful silk table runner from Silk and Willow. The coastal blues were a nice complement to the natural tones of textured bleached ferns, fan coral, lunaria and fresh florals of muted golden mustard garden roses & creme orchids that I designed into a lush oversized coastal garland draping off the table. The pretty stationery and menu cards from THEO BERRY STATIONERY, were simply gorgeous textures adding one more coastal element to the table. The beautiful CAROL HANNAH dress was sewn with layers and layers of white silk chiffon trailing into the wind down the beach as the bride strolled among the lava rocks and sand. I’m also in love with the delicate gold wire and crystal head crown from NOON ON THE MOON!"

These Trendy Moissanite Engagement Rings Will Take Your Breath Away
"Whether you're looking for a nontraditional stone, a socially conscious ring, or a larger cut within your budget, there's a reason moissanite engagement rings are the latest trend.
Instead of the traditional diamond, many couples are opting for this mineral that was originally discovered in a meteor crater and now mainly produced in labs. Unlike diamonds, a moissanite stone isn't graded on color, but often has a more yellow or grayish hue and can be perceived as more vibrant than the beloved gemstone. Moissanites are also considered more brilliant than diamonds because they disperse less light and also sparkle longer because they don't attract as much dirt.
...Let these jaw-dropping moissanite rings ahead inspire you!"

Why You Should Consider Moissanite With Fire & Brilliance
"We recently had the pleasure of spending some time with the well known fine jewelry company Fire & Brilliance. They are known particularly for their Moissanite rings, but are experts in all thing diamonds and customizable jewelry. This was the first time we had seen Moissanite in action and since we walked impressed and with new knowledge - we are sharing some reasons we learned you might want to consider a Moissanite stone for your engagement ring.
You may be wondering what is with the funky name (we were). It was actually named after Nobel-Prize Winning Scientist Dr. Henri Moissan who discovered the mineral in a 50,000 year old fallen meteorite more than 100 years ago. Yes it can be earth mined too, but that is actually rarer these days than finding a diamonds so the Moissanite you see today is made in a lab. Fire & Brilliance actually works with moissanite manufactured and graded by the original creator of lab-moissanite, Charles and Colvard..."

Certified Colorless Moissanite with Fire & Brilliance
"In recent news, Michael Nguyen, Founder of Custom Jewelry Company Fire & Brilliance, has teamed up with David Gendal, Head of Mostly Moissanite Inc. to introduce the world’s very first certified Charles & Colvard (C&C) Forever One moissanite gems!
These Charles & Colvard moissanite gems created in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina are certified by a 3rd party diamond and gems grading company called Precision Gem Grading Laboratory (PGGL). Utilizing the latest state-of-the-art technologies made for jewelry, PGGL is able to provide a very detailed laboratory grading report for each moissanite gem to ensure that the characteristic descriptions are specific to that stone’s individual quality.
The 'Moissanite Jewel Grading Certificate' provides thorough information similar to that of diamond grading reports, such as: “Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight.” It also includes the stone’s exact dimensions, measurements, crown angles, girdle thickness, polish, symmetry, and fluorescence grade. The guarantee of such is the defining difference between uncertified and certified moissanite stones."
Millennials, Moissanite, and the JCK Las Vegas Show
Now that millennials are becoming more sophisticated consumers, the time for lab-grown gemstones has clearly arrived. From Pure Grown Diamonds to Charles& Colvard Created Moissanite, the selection of lab-grown products has begun to change the marketplace. It’s no longer a matter of if or when they will become sought after, rather, it’s by whom and how.
At the Charles & Colvard booth at the recent JCK Las Vegas show, independent jewelers, e-commerce buyers, and designers were three-deep to view the new colorless moissanite set to debut this fall. Eyal Brikman of Kobelli Fine Jewelry in Los Angeles said his moissanite business is on fire. Michael and Linda Nguyen, designers of the Fire & Brilliance collection, were equally thrilled with their moissanite business.
“Oh, wow! is the first thing we heard from everyone when they saw our new gem,” says Sarah Williams, vice president of marketing and branding for Charles & Colvard. “It’s a game changer. If you were on the fence with moissanite, there is no reason to be now. The stone is simply magnificent. On top of that, lab-grown gems, which are considered to be socially responsible, are quickly coming into the market, and we are poised to ride this wave.” Millennials, in particular, are asking for Forever Brilliant moissanite as a center stone for engagement rings. “We met numerous retailers who said their business is growing significantly due to referrals from the chain stores, which are ‘walking’ customers since they don’t offer the option of moissanite,” adds Williams.
