Journey of A Gemstone

We were recently featured in a Town Carolina post about the artisan boom happening in Nashville alongside many other Nashville artisans, including Jamie + the Jones and Ceri Hoover! The article is definitely an awesome celebration of the high quality handmade work that is being done here, and we are so happy to be included in the bunch:

“Specializing in gemstones and the meaning behind them, Bright utilizes stones from all over the world to craft affordable heirloom-quality rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets on-site. All her stones are hand-cut in India to her specifications.”

We often get the question about where our stones come from. The expansive list of stones we work with really come from all over the globe. For example, labradorite famously comes from Labrador and Newfoundland. Malachite was originally mined in the Ural mountains in Russia, but most is currently supplied out of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Aquamarine is often found in Sri Lanka and parts of Indo-China.

We are very proud of the fact that the stones we use are organic, but they are also sized and cut by our stone cutter to our specifications. We have a close working relationship with the company that cuts and sizes our gemstones- Judith was even invited to the owner’s son’s wedding in 2016! After they are cut in India, they are sent directly to our studio in Nashville. Our jewelry artists decide which stones will be best for our Zen collection, and which one are better set in metal, based on shape.

Finally, after our artisans craft our designs using these gemstones from all over the world, they go out to our sales floor, our store in Atlanta, or directly to you! We love knowing where our stones come from, and figure our customers appreciate that too!

Think Pink

Which color starburst is best? Pink. What is the best power-lipstick color? Pink. Best roses to give a girlfriend? Pink. And what is our favorite October birthstone? Pink Tourmaline!

The color of the year has undoubtedly been PINK! Whether your prefer the sleek “millennial pink” or the ever eye catching Barbie pink, there’s no reason to shy away from pink this Fall. Our favorite October birthstone is Pink Tourmaline & we love it as a dainty pop of pink for any look. Pair it with our rose gold for a really rosy look, with our traditional yellow gold for something classic, or the sterling silver for something really cool!

Trend Alert: Hoops!

 

Hoops are having a glorious moment! These have been hot all Summer, and are sure to be the go-to style of the Fall. They are the perfect last moment accessory that can take every look up a notch! (We also low key love them for those less-than-great-hair-days.)

Get the look:

Get our three standard sizes (Small, medium and large) in our 14 Karat gold filled and sterling silver, and our light weight XL hoops in 14 Karat gold filled, 14 Karat Rose-gold filled(featured above), and sterling silver.

It’s Fall Y’all

This is an obligatory Autumnal blog post. We love Fall. Of course we do. Fall means cozy sweaters, it means the holidays are approaching, it means Football season, it means those cool crisp mornings are finally here and we can all finally stop sweating our makeup off every morning before work. Of course there are people out there who would rather not celebrate the magic of the changing of the seasons. Those people are wrong. So, go ahead and enjoy your leaf throwing, your PSL drinking, your dark lipstick wearing- however you celebrate the coming of the best season of all, Fall.

Congrats & Best Wishes!

There is nothing more special to us than having the privilege of being featured in a bride’s special day!  Beautiful bride and long time Judith Bright customer Julian Langenkamp Hartner wore our 3-Stone Bangle and Medium Nest Post Earrings in white topaz, which symbolizes good fortune! The mother of the bride wore our Nugget Earrings and Mollie Necklace in labradorite (strength and perseverance), and Julian’s bridesmaids wore our Uno Bangle and the Alyssa Earrings in moonstone (New beginnings).

We give 10% discounts to bridal parties, and our associates are always glad to help choose special pieces for brides and their bridesmaids!

Trend Alert: Urban Jungle

Whether it’s in your studio space, kitchen, bathroom or bedroom, there’s no denying the power that plants have to transform a space. There are no rules about which plants to choose, how many you can have, or where to put them! (Pro-tip: consider what plants are good to keep around your favorite furry friend, or if you have a hard time maintaining plants in general, you can opt for a low maintenance succulent!)
