Bridal: Floral Motifs & (Heather B.) Moore



Moore, Moore, Moore!

There may be something in the water in Cleveland: 14 staffers at Heather B. Moore jewelry got engaged in the past year. No wonder Moore debuted a bridal line at June’s Couture show.

“Bridal has been on everyone’s minds—and what a fun topic because it’s the beginning of something new,” she says.

Moore’s signature style translates loud and clear. Designs allow customers to inscribe in the shanks a location, wedding date, initials, and more. “Our personalization techniques put us on the map,” she says. “We are not losing sight of that.”

Some 100 SKUs (starting retail: $500) come in 14k–18k rose, yellow, white, and green gold and palladium.

Wanting to stay ahead of the curve while honoring clients’ still-raging love affair with halo rings, designer Sylvie Levine tweaked looks just a bit at 2013’s JCK show. She planted floral motifs—peonies, poppies, roses, daisies, sunflowers, dahlias, and more—within the ever-popular engagement style. “I always have loved the flower element,” she says. “Since the Sylvie Collection celebrates femininity and romance, it seemed appropriate to use a floral element to evoke that feeling in the halo.” Levine wasn’t the only one with blooms on the brain: Gabriel & Co., Erica Courtney, Dawes Design, and MaeVona showed floral halos too.
