They are open to new concepts in bridal jewelry,” says president Doron Hakimian. Composed of some 60 SKUs in 14k and 18k gold, the line retails for as little as $600.

La Vie Bohème
Designer Delphine Leymarie’s latest ode to love and commitment is Bohème, a wedding jewelry line reflecting her signature architectural aesthetic combined with a softer, more bohemian-chic vibe. Vibrant gemstones frequently take the place of diamonds across the collection—“like wildflower bouquets or cacti in bloom,” says the designer.

“A lot of customers come in with ring pictures on a cellphone. A man will say, ‘Here’s what’s on her Pinterest page.’ We can create custom pieces in CAD, and we try to get men to buy matching bands that day because you’ll otherwise miss the sale.”
