Writing Your Wedding Vows? Read This First

Tips for writing your own wedding ceremony vows.

Writing your own vows might seem daunting, but it’ll be worth it when you’re up at that altar. Here are some tips and tricks to get you through it.

Read lots of vow examples for inspiration.

Start by reading traditional, by-the-book vows from your own religion if you practice a certain faith, and others as well, to see what strikes a chord with you. Incorporate these samples into the original words you write or simply use them as a jumping-off point. Once you’ve found a few you love, consider what it is about the style that draws you to those vows in particular.

Agree on how you want your vows to come across with your fiancé.
Do you envision them as humorous? Poetic and romantic? Go over the logistics too. Will you write them separately or together? Will they be completely different or will you make the same promises to each other as you would with traditional vows? Some couples do a little of each. Finally, will you share them with each other or keep them a secret until the wedding day?

Jot down notes about your relationship. Take some time to reflect on your fiancé. Think about how you felt when you first met, what made you fall in love and when you knew you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together. Write it all out to get your creative gears turning.

Here’s a handy list of questions to help get you started:

  • Why did you decide to get married?
  • What hard times have you gone through together?
  • What have you supported each other through?
  • What challenges do you envision in your future?
  • What do you want to accomplish together?
  • What makes your relationship tick?
  • What were your thoughts when you first saw your fiancé?
  • When did you realize you were in love?
  • What do you most respect about your partner?
  • How has your life gotten better since meeting your mate?
  • What about them inspires you?
  • What do you miss most about them when you’re apart?
  • What qualities do you most admire in one another?
  • Come up with one or two, or many, promises.
  • Write it all out.
  • Write out a short story and then circle back to it at the end.

Avoid clichés.
Now that you have your first draft, it’s time to make edits. Borrow from poetry, books, religious and spiritual texts, and even from romantic movies, but don’t let someone else’s words overpower your own. You want your vows to sound like you and relate to your relationship, and that won’t happen if every word is borrowed from other sources. And if you find yourself relying on cliché phrases (you know, those sayings that have been used over and over so many times they no longer sound genuine) to get your point across, come up with similar message but in your own words.

Take out anything too cryptic or embarrassing.
You’ve invited your family and friends to witness your vows in order to make your bond public, so be sure everyone feels included in the moment. That means putting a limit on inside jokes, deeply personal anecdotes and obscure nicknames or code words. Keep in mind about how your vows will sound to you 10 or 20 years from now. Have a friend or family member read it over ahead of time for feedback, if you’re okay with sharing your vows beforehand.

Shorten your vows to one to two minutes, max.
Your vows are important, but that doesn’t mean they should drag on. Pick the most important points and make them. Don’t let it run longer than two minutes. Put some of the more personal thoughts in a letter or gift to your fiancé on the morning of your wedding and save any guest-related topics for your toasts.

Practice out loud (MUST)!
It might sound a little awkward, but this really is the best way to prep. When you are practicing try to say it with meaning, don’t just say it, put your heart into it. Listen each time—then do it better, keep in mind as you recite them, listen for any tongue twisters and super-long sentences, then cut them out. This is also the time to practice the delivery. Stand in front of a mirror and practice your stance and your hand movements.

Make a clean copy for yourself.
The paper you read from should be legible, so even if you’re working on it right up until a few moments before your ceremony, use a fresh piece of paper such as a nice note card that matches the wedding colors or a little notebook or pad. You can hand write it or cut and paste the computer print to fit within that. And it also makes a nice keepsake to hang in your home later on.

Springtime Jewelry Care

Springtime Jewelry Care

Springtime is officially here! Which means spending more time outdoors in the sunshine. Now that winter is finally over we can get out and do fun activities like swimming and gardening. Springtime activities can be especially harsh on your wedding ring, so keep that in mind and make sure you are taking proper care of them. Precious metals can become damaged because of the soft nature of the metal. Here are a few tips to ensure that your ring stays as perfect as the day you first put it on.
–Gardening: While many of us can’t wait to start digging around in the dirt to get beautiful flowers and fresh vegetables planted, be mindful of your wedding band. It can get dirty, scratched, dented or even lost. The best and easiest decision is to remove your ring and put it somewhere safe. Or try wearing gardening gloves to offer more protection.

8MM double dome Serinium band millgrain finish RMSA002311 $450

–Swimming: Playing in the pool or a nice relaxing hot tub session is one of the activities that people look forward to most once the weather gets warmer. Pools and hot tubs have harsh chemicals like chlorine that can damage your ring. The general rule is that it is best to just not wear it. You don’t want to risk changing the appearance of your ring or losing it.

–Car Washing: Can’t wait to get all the winter weather gunk off of your car? Grabbing a bucket of soapy water and getting your car nice and clean can be a relaxing spring activity. It is usually best to remove any jewelry during this activity. Wearing a ring, bracelet or necklace while washing your car can damage the finish and not to mention scratching your car and ruining the paint.

6mm Serinium round edge millgrain edge RMSA002032 $450

 

These tips apply to most jewelry, especially precious metals such as gold and silver and even some alternative metals. If you have a Serinium wedding band however, the rules change just a bit. Serinium is scratch resistant, will not tarnish, oxidize or discolor. All classic Serinium styles will hold up in a pool or a hot tub, so you can enjoy your favorite spring activities worry free!

Jewelry Protection Wintertime

Jewelry Protection Wintertime

Keeping Your Jewelry Protected in the Winter Months

We all know that we need to take good care of our jewelry, but harsh winter weather can create several hazards. Taking proper care to ensure your jewelry is protected from the elements can be challenging. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind this winter.

Cleaning Your Jewelry

You should maintain a monthly cleaning of your jewelry or more often if you wear it everyday. Gems can become hazy and dull and will need to be given careful attention to cleaning. Even the cold temperatures can cause your jewelry to need extra TLC. Simply use mild soap and water and a very soft toothbrush, making sure not to scrub with force, then rinse with water

Rings Falling Off the Finger

When it is bitter cold outside, your fingers can constrict and your rings will not fit as well. You may find that your rings slip off your finger very easily. The risk of losing your ring increases so you will want to take extra precautions to keep your ring on. Some options are to wear a ring guard or wear some type of layered ring that is tighter to hold it on your finger.

Wear Gloves

When you are outside in the cold for an extended time, you should protect your hands by wearing gloves. Keep in mind that the glove itself may cause damage to your ring if it is too tight or rubs on your ring. Use caution especially with the prongs to not tug or pull on them.

SeriniumDiamond

Heavier Clothing

Wearing many layers or heavier clothing can be damaging on your jewelry too. You don’t want to risk snagging your clothes and pulling out a stone. The heavier material may rub against your jewelry and possibly scratch your jewelry. Wait to put your jewelry on until after you are finished getting dressed and take off before undressing for the day.

When to Remove Jewelry

There are times that is just best to go without jewelry. When you are going to be participating in outdoor activities, it may be a good idea to leave the jewelry at home in a safe protected place. The risk of damaging a ring or your finger is too great.  Serinium® jewelry is strong and durable yet the safer option when it comes to emergency ring removal simply by applying pressure with house hold tools to crack it off.

Warm Glow of Royal Copper and Rose Gold’s Popularity

Warm Glow of Royal Copper and Rose Gold’s Popularity

Warm Glow of Royal Copper and Rose Gold

Choosing between Rose Gold and Copper for its distinctive characteristics is a wonderful option for those who enjoy both traditional and modern looks. The Rose Gold is a mix of yellow gold and copper which creates a warm glow that is flattering to all skin tones. The higher content of copper creates a deeper shade of red or pink that is sure to be treasured forever. Royal Copper offers more of an earthy tone, but also gives a soothing comforting effect, which will certainly stand out in a crowd. Our wide array of Royal Copper or Rose Gold inlayed in our Serinium® bands is sure to please, and we have many options available to suit each and every style and taste.

                                  
Not only has Copper gained popularity but the same holds true for Rose Gold. They both have distinctive hues making them stand out from white and yellow gold. Rose Gold has once again been gaining popularity over the last several years, becoming one of the most desirable metal options that it is being offered on many items other than jewelry. These two metal shades colors are becoming popular in accessories such as phone covers, sunglasses, and purses just to name a few. Even designers are adding these colors to customize their fashion line.

                                  
See for yourself the distinctive look when you mix Serinium® and Rose Gold or Royal Copper.

Darker Finish Options Create Masculine Design

Darker Finish Options Create Masculine Design

Do you know your Black Contemporary Metals?

Let’s face it — black jewelry looks cool on guys — and many men today are moving beyond traditional polished yellow gold and white gold wedding bands and are opting for a rougher, more masculine look i.e. black contemporary metals. Black wedding bands and rings made from materials such as black ceramic are popular, as are contemporary metals coated with a black surface. Guys are also choosing rough or dark, non-reflective finishes on their wedding bands to create a less formal, more masculine look, sometimes over the entire ring and sometimes in a contrasting pattern or band. Popular finishes, such as a stone finish, hammer finish or bark finish, provide a rougher less shiny look. Applying a sandblast finish or even some laser designs can reduce or eliminate the high gloss polish from a ring as well. As seen in our Serinium® bands below.

Designs made in Black Diamond Ceramic™, as well as our patented Serinium® metal with the Black Diamond Ceramic inlay, capture a more subtle, classic designer look that appeals to men looking for a more contemporary wedding ring. In the attached images you can see a variety of finishes that our jewelers use to customize a wedding band and fulfill your desire for a grayer or darker look.

Black wedding rings

Do you know the difference between the coated metals and black ceramic metals? Black Zirconium, Black Titanium, Black Tungsten are all coated or treated to apply a black surface layer. They look great when they are new, but these coatings can tend to scratch or wear off over time, revealing the silver metal underneath. Black Diamond Ceramic™, on the other hand, is a super hard black ceramic metal that is solid black all the way through, so the color will never scratch or wear off. It is also one of the hardest materials known to man, making it a great choice for a man’s band that will be worn every day. For the contemporary masculine look and quality that will last a lifetime, be sure to check out our Black Diamond Ceramic™ Bands and our brilliant Serinium® designs.

Rings for the Modern Man

Rings for the Modern Man

Rings for the Modern Man – Forget the wedding band, wear a statement ring!

For the modern man, wearing a ring beyond the wedding band creates a statement. Many men wear rings as way of expressing themselves. What is your style? Do you like to express your individuality? How do you think others see you? Do you think it tells the world that you are an independent man, not afraid to show your true style?

josh-hand-on-tree-close-up      hand-on-ledge-high-res

Are you a Modern Man that wears rings other than a wedding band? If so, what style? How do you think it affects the opinions of others? Do you even care? Should you?

Whether you are aware of it or not, people always notice rings. People cannot help themselves from noticing jewelry worn on men. What is the message you are communicating when you wear your rings? A Modern Man can make a statement when he wears a ring that is a symbol to commemorate a special life event, maybe an achievement, or your favorite hobby maybe to show your success and personal style. Do you want to show off your prized trophy Antler Inlay ring? Maybe you are a hunter who wants to show off your favorite camouflage print. Are you a motorcycle buff, or are you an executive wanting to show your prestige?

United Together – Stronger Together

United Together – Stronger Together

United Together-Stronger Together

United Together – In America where we are stronger together when we are United Together. We all have a shared responsibility to bridge the differences that are becoming quite evident in the last several months. With many celebrities, and high profile personalities speaking out about becoming more united and less reactive with violent outcomes. It is clear that we all have the same hopes and dreams to live in a land without divisiveness between our law enforcement and our citizens. As in all relationships, whether in your family, your community or between nations, the question is how? The answer is not an easy one but showing your support and helping unite one another is good place to start. What are you doing to make a change?

Jewelry is not immune to the shifting tides of social consciousness. Statement jewelry doesn’t need to be bold or flashy to be noticed and respected for its true meaning. Whatever you are saying with your jewelry whether it is a social stand or a fashion trend, the ability to show your passion to unite our communities and loved ones, will never cease. With the resurgence of social injustice these days, finding a way to create unity and appreciation for one another is in high demand. Serinium® jewelry not only offers a socially responsible, high fashion, high tech look and feel, but it is the safer and higher quality contemporary metal option available today. Just like a statement piece of clothing, the kind that stands out and says I am speaking from the heart, your jewelry can create the same effect and show that you share in the urgency to participate in social change in this time of conflict and divide.

Show your support with our United Together blue and black thin line Serinium® band. Remember, “We are only as strong as we are United, as weak as we are Divided”. J.K. Rowling.

Happy Labor Day

labor day flag

Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is a celebration of American labor and is an inspiration to the American workers. We often neglect to show our appreciation to those who work in the trade and labor sectors. We have become a nation that thinks of Labor Day as the end of summer celebration, back to school sales or that final summer get together, but we forget to remember that Labor day should be the most meaningful holiday of the year. We need to raise awareness that American workers still make awesome things! How about remembering that good ol’ American promise of creating American goods.

What kind of American trade worker are you? Do you work in a factory, oil field, or out on the construction site? Or do you work with heavy machinery? Do you ever think of safety out in the field? Of course you do. With all the safety measures being practiced on these jobs, do you ever worry about your wedding ring getting caught on a part of a machine? Do you know how to safely remove the ring if you are injured? What if your finger is swollen or broken? Most metals other than precious metals would be very difficult to remove from the finger in these types of situations. Serinium® is the most logical choice when it comes to the ability to be very durable and hold up with in the jobs that hard working hands go through. Yet, ease of removal is needed in an emergency situation. Serinium® can be easily removed from the finger using any readily available tool, such as vice grips to apply pressure on the band to crack it in half. The other contemporary metals would require a lengthy removal process that is extremely uncomfortable and time consuming to remove from finger. Serinium® metal jewelry ultra-hard and will not tarnish or change colors.

Maybe we should celebrate Labor Day by supporting local independent stores that provide you with goods and services that are made by people and their hands. As Americans we need to celebrate our independent local workers throughout the year. Maybe we can inspire our children to create their dream of making things with their hands, simply by recognizing our local chapter of labor and trade in our own communities.
