The Eco Friendly Jewelry of Dale Grey Vintage

It feels good to look good. Leaving the house dressed to the nines with a well-planned outfit and jewels to match can give your confidence level and self-esteem a pretty nice boost. However, simply looking good isn’t always enough to give you that lasting happy feeling. To truly feel good you have to do good. This can be as simple as staying environmentally conscious as you make your next jewelry purchase.

Make Your Jewelry a Connection to your World

Eco friendly jewelry does not leave any negative effect on the environment during its creation process. That means this type of jewelry is created with minimal pollution, waste and energy costs. The materials are generally recycled or may be primarily of renewable sources whose use doesn’t negatively affect nature in any way.

Dale Grey Vintage uses recycled and reclaimed materials—including brass, copper and gunmetal. These materials add to the vintage appeal of the gypsy inspired pieces, connecting to the environment in ways beyond the visual. The pieces are bold yet feminine—elements that capture the essence of Mother Nature through classic yet daring designs.

The eco-friendly gypsy collection is inspired by the world around you, and wearing it may even inspire you to think more about the environment that you can work to preserve. As you step outside with your eco friendly costume jewelry, let the sun grace your skin. Feel the dampness of dew on the grass graze your toes in your sandals. Feel the wind flow through your hair—let your eco friendly jewels set the mood and really embrace the world around you.

What to Look for in Eco Friendly Jewelry

The Dale Grey Vintage Collection is specially designed, eco-friendly jewelry that you can feel good about wearing. However, when looking for eco-friendly jewels there are a few things to keep in mind.

There are several features that make a piece of jewelry eco-friendly:

It is vintage: If it wasn’t produced just for you, then your desire for the product didn’t lead to any waste. Purchasing vintage jewelry is a great form of recycling. By giving an item a second life you save it from meeting a landfill.

It is reclaimed: Eco-friendly jewelry is generally made of recycled or reclaimed materials. While these materials still require some processing, and will generally produce some waste, they don’t require any destruction of natural materials.

The jewelry you wear can be more than a fashion statement. Jewelry is worldly—it represents different cultures, beliefs, passions and histories. Every piece of jewelry you wear carries its own inspiration and story. When you wear eco-friendly jewelry, that passion, history and meaning is even deeper.

The Dale Grey Vintage Gypsy collection provides this type of experience. When you wear a piece of the Dale Grey Vintage collection, your jewelry begins to tell a story. You are no longer an individual entity traversing across this planet. Instead, you are a fundamental part of your own world—connected to the emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual wellbeing of every person, place and living object you come across.

Marquise Engagement Ring Eye Candy

Every woman knows that the most important piece of jewelry you’ll ever own is your engagement ring. The sentimental value alone eclipses the actual worth of the jewelry. The choice of ring is paramount – not only does it symbolize the love of your life, but it’s a piece of jewelry that is worn every day. Your engagement ring should not only stand the test of time, but make you smile every time you glance at your finger.

Most men get slightly nervous when talking about buying a ring. That’s often written off as fear of commitment, but there’s more to it than that – shopping for anyone else, first of all, is not every man’s favorite pastime. Then traditional costs of three months’ salary get tossed around and that’s enough to make anyone with fiscal sense a little leery. Plus, no one ever wants to start their life together picking the wrong ring. They want their future wife to be happy with the choice, just like their future wife hopes that they will find the perfect ring.

The Marquis Cut Engagement Ring

When choosing the engagement ring, it’s the center stone that you should decide on first. Once you know the shape and size of the stone, the rest of the setting will naturally come together.

A marquis cut is a fantastic choice. First of all, it offers way more bang for your buck. Because of the shape, the stone gives the illusion of being larger than it is which, in turn, means that the cost will be lower. Another advantage to the marquis cut is that (if set so that the points are length-wise down the finger, rather than sideways) it has a slimming effect on the fingers. The stone can, of course, be set to your specifications.

Marquis cut diamonds are a great center stone if you want your engagement ring to have a little variation of color. Perhaps you’d like a diamond with a hint of yellow or one with rubies added to the setting, such as this:

Sapphires are also fantastic. The contrast of the stones really makes the diamond sparkle:

The best way to choose the right ring is to go with the bride’s style. Fads will come and go – for instance, twenty years ago, yellow gold was very popular. But it’s since been eclipsed by silver, white gold and platinum. You can’t do anything about the trends that will change in the next five, ten, or twenty years. What you can do is to find a setting and style that embodies the bride’s personal taste. Some women appreciate a more classic taste. They want something elegant and timeless, such as:

Many women today love the ornate feel of vintage jewelry – something with a pop of color that looks as though it might have been the height of fashion in the early 20th century:

Then, of course, there are women who prefer something simple and elegant.

Whatever your decision, make sure it’s something that will stand the test of time.
