Are you a DRD girl?

5 May

Dana Rebecca Designs DRD Girl

We’re firm believers in wearing what you own. From the very beginning, the goal of DRD has been that jewelry should never sit in a jewelry box reserved for a special occasion. We want the jewelry to feel timeless, classic and functional on a daily basis, morning to night. The DRD girl is a girl that loves to layer and isn’t afraid to mix & match! Are you a DRD girl? Share how and where you wear your pieces on our Instagram using #DRDgirl or post on our Facebook page to be featured as our Girl of the Month.

Sofia Vergara Loves Her DRD

16 Apr

Sofia Vergara in Dana Rebecca Jewelry Bracelets MTV Movie Awards

From the MTV Movie Awards to an appearance on The Ellen Show, Sofia Vergara, alongside co-star Reese Witherspoon, had a whirlwind week promoting her upcoming movie, Hot Pursuit (hitting theaters May 8th.) While the two kept us laughing non-stop on Ellen, we also couldn’t help smiling from ear to ear over the high amount of DRD love from Sofia. Kicking off the Movie Awards, she sparkled in a blue bandage dress, sleek blowout and berry lip, paired with our one-of-a-kind Courtney Lauren square bangle and Melissa Louise sapphire bangle.

Sofia Vergara in Dana Rebecca Jewelry Diamond Initial Cuff

Keeping the DRD bling going, Sofia brought the laughs to Ellen keeping her love on her arm, rocking a custom initial cuff with initials “JS”. A modern way to wear a sentimental piece, this cuff can be customized with your spouse’s, kid’s or your own initials. (Or a little bit of both, as seen on Sofia, wearing her own plus fiancé Joe Manganiello’s initial.)

DRD Bride: Hillary Lev

7 Apr

Dana Rebecca Designs Bride Hillary Lev Bridal Jewelry

THE COUPLEIn October of 2010, my girlfriend invited me to a casino-themed charity event for Children’s Memorial Hospital. Little did I know, meeting my future husband would be the best bet of the night. After a night of games, laughs, and bidding for children, we arranged to have our first date the following week. After three blissful years of dating, we planned a trip to Nicaragua and on the morning of our departure, Jason got down on one knee and proposed! He whisked me away on a romantic getaway to celebrate our engagement and I have been on cloud 9 ever since!

THE PARTYThis may sound alarming, but I did not want a wedding! I wanted to elope and thought Nicaragua would be perfect. Unfortunately my husband-to-be was not on board! Thus, we came up with the idea of a surprise wedding! We let our immediate family in on the secret, but told the rest of our family and friends that we were getting married in a family only ceremony on November 29th and a week later December 6th would be our reception. Now this was an incredibly difficult secret to keep, but we had repeated the story so many times that I even began to believe our own lie!

Dana Rebecca Designs Bride Hillary Lev Bridal Jewelry

Needless to say our 200 guests were in complete shock after a slideshow and a previously recorded piece from Jason and I announcing that we did not wed the week prior because we wanted our friends and family present! Immediately following, the chuppah and rabbi came on stage and we walked down and said I do, while our friends and family watched in awe! I wanted a space that kept my guests on the dance floor all night while sipping on cocktails and enjoying great food! We chose 1st Ward inside the Chop Shop in Bucktown for our venue. We had lounge furniture throughout, purple and silver lighting, candles in crystals vases, and party favors such at “I love Lev” sunglasses to set the mood! To keep the party alive we hired Matt Roan who played all of our requests until 2 a.m.!

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS: I knew my strapless dress with lace detail was the one I was meant to wear when I put it on at Palazzo Bridal. I loved how the dress was elegant and timeless and would allow me to show off my dance moves! The satin belt, Manolo Blahnik peep toe shoes, and Dana Rebecca Jessica Leigh Teardrop Earrings made me feel like the ultimate bride on my special day!

WHAT WERE YOU LOOKING FOR IN YOUR WEDDING JEWELRY AND HOW DID DRD FIT THAT VISION?

I wanted to wear one piece of jewelry that would accentuate my features and be noticed through my long, dark hair. My Jessica Leigh Teardrops were the perfect piece and fit my vision of beauty and elegance.

WE KNOW A BRIDE’S FOCUS IS ON THE SPECIAL DAY. TELL US YOUR PLANS FOR YOUR DRD PIECES AFTER THE WEDDING.

My Jessica Leigh Teardrop Earrings are a timeless staple and I love wearing them for a night out on the town with my husband or for a special occasion! But, I still love and wear my first piece of DRD, my Rima Naya Earrings that Jason bought me when we were dating!
