Chinchar Maloney, based in Portland, is a team of special artisans creating unique hand-made jewelry. Their lines range from beautifully selected natural diamonds and gems, to simple pieces that are great for layering. Their engagement rings have a rustic yet modern feel, most of them are rose cut to show off their natural characteristics. For brides looking for that one-of-a-kind ring, they also do custom work. The best part is they are very concerned about using ethical and conflict-free diamonds and stones.
As we were searching for the perfect engagement ring, we stumbled upon Trumpet & Horn, a jeweler based in Los Angeles who specializes in only antique and vintage jewelry. They carry a vast collection of wonderfully unique jewelry, some are as old as the 1700’s to 1950’s. There is something very timeless and elegant about these one-of-a-kind pieces. I love that each one has such a rich history, and their story will be carried on by the next bride.
