How Should My Wedding Ring Fit?
For many, an engagement ring or wedding band is one of the first pieces of jewelry you will ever wear for hours on end, every single day. Because of this it’s important for the ring to fit correctly! Finger shapes and sizes vary from person to person, and a lot of sizing comes down to personal preference. However there are some tips to follow to ensure your ring is comfortable for everyday wear...
How To Style Mismatched Earrings

This look is super easy to pull off and allows you to show off your own style in a unique way. I'm super excited to offer
Salt and Pepper Diamonds

What are salt and pepper diamonds?

Nearly all diamonds have "flaws" known as inclusions. There can be many different types of inclusions, from black to white or different sizes, shapes and colors. The term "Salt and Pepper" refers to white and black inclusions specifically. This gives the diamonds an icy gray tone. I like to call these diamonds galaxy diamonds because I think there is something quite celestial and magical about them. Each one is just slightly different making them really unique and one of a kind.  

What is the Difference Between White Gold and Silver?
A question I often get here at Lacee Alexandra is ‘what is the difference between white gold and silver.’ White gold is sometimes mistaken for silver because the production process takes away the yellow tint in favor of a white-silver finish.
How To Transition Your Look From Summer to Fall
While summer will always hold a special place in my heart Fall is without a doubt my absolute favorite season. There's just something so magical about this transitional period as the weather cools and the trees start to change. It always makes me want to slow down a bit, reflect and refocus. As we move from the pool to the fireplace our wardrobe also goes under a bit of change, requiring a few more layers but not yet that heavier winter coat
Choosing a stone: hardness, durability, and long term wear
Not all stones are created equally and while shopping for jewelry knowing the durability of a gemstone will help you decide not only how and when to wear the piece, but how to care for it as well.
Which stone is best for an engagement ring?

A couple of questions I get all the time is what stone should I put in an engagement ring or wedding band? & What is the difference between a mined diamond, lab-grown diamond, moissanite and white sapphire?

Ultimately the choice is up to you, however some stones (like the ones listed above) definitely hold up better to everyday wear making them popular choices.

The Story Behind the Isle Ring

I am forever inspired by the textures, colors, histories and beauty of our natural world. The Isle ring is the perfect representation of this. 

The Isle ring is part of the Ula Riva collection, which roughly translates to "sea jewel from the sea shore." My intention with this collection was to bring to life the magic and enchantment of our oceans...

How To Travel With Jewelry
Summer is in full swing and if you know me you know I LOVE to travel. Summer is a great time to explore new places abroad or even undiscovered places closer to your home.

Easy Spring Look For A Fresh Wardrobe
Spring always feels like a time of rebirth, I don't know if it's the longer days or the new growth sprouting up from the earth, but for me it's a great time for starting new. This can mean many things, like spring decluttering or a wardrobe refresh! I enjoy both but I especially love changing things around in my closet. This doesn't always mean buying lots of new, but learning how to style pieces differently for the spring season...
