Fair & Lovely

Dana Bronfman’s first-ever wedding jewelry collection puts a pleasingly quirky spin on classic bridal styles. The new series is elegant, but also popping with eccentric details—think bands with tiny round cutouts and scattered gypsy-set diamonds. Plus, the line exclusively features eco-conscious materials including Fairmined-certified gold, vintage and antique diamonds and sapphires, contemporary sapphires from Montana and Australia, and Muzo Colombian emeralds. Every piece in the collection is one of a kind and can be customized with heirloom or freshly sourced stones. The collection “not only further develops my style while staying true to my values,” Bronfman says. “It also introduces something innovative to the bridal market.” —Emili Vesilind

Alternative Energy

We’ve got nothing against diamond engagement rings. (Don’t miss the dazzlers showcased in “Queen of Denim & Diamonds.”) But it’s hard to deny the appeal, and affordability, of colored center stones. This regal Juno ring—named for the goddess of marriage—by Seattle-based designer Valerie Madison ticks all the bridal boxes: wearability, thanks to its low profile; durability, owing to the purple sapphire; and, of course, sheer beauty. Come to think of it…who needs a proposal? It would work on any finger. —Melissa Rose Bernardo
