Say Hello to Marsala!

Pantone Color of the Year Marsala Dana Rebecca Designs Gemstone Jewelry

Say hello to the Pantone Color of the Year 2015, marsala! This earthy wine reddish-brown is perfect for every look from dusk until dinner. Jewels are a great way to incorporate deep neutrals, like marsala, into your everyday ensemble. Our Cynthia Rose Hoops add a pop of color and are a fresh take on a hoop earring – an unexpected but beautiful touch. For more earthy options, choose from our Lindsay Allison Stud Earrings available in rhodolite garnet featuring a purple hue or the smoky quartz in a gorgeous chocolate brown. Both versions of this simplistic yet stunning earring can add a small touch of color to your look.

In addition to jewels, add some marsala with a deep, bold lip. Pick a pinky brown for easy day looks and a red wine hue to add a little drama for the evening.

Happy Birthday, January Babies!

15 Jan

Dana Rebecca Designs January Birthstone Garnet

Happy birthday, January babies! It’s your shining moment. In contrast to the cold month, January’s warm and bright birthstone, garnet, is believed to light up the night and protect its owner during travel. Garnet’s mystical powers also symbolize eternal friendship and loyalty, making it a great gift for anyone! Derived from the word “granatum” meaning pomegranate, the gemstone can be found in a variety of shades ranging from black to vibrant red’s and green’s. The gem’s faceted surface reflects light from all angles, creating a polished finish and eye-catching effect. Warm up your look by trying our Jennifer Yamina necklace or studs to add a delicate but luxurious accent or the Lindsay Allison Cuff Earring for an edgy statement.

DRD Bride: Nicole Shamis

13 Jan

Dana Rebecca Designs Nicole Shamis Bridal Jewelry

THE COUPLE: Ben and I met through mutual friends. My best friend was dating (and is now married to) Ben’s roommate. We were always around each other and realized we got along really well. Ben took me on our first date to La Madia, which is where we celebrated our engagement with our families three years later!

THE PARTY: Our wedding was at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. The ballroom had a vintage glamour vibe that was just perfect for what we envisioned for our big day. The chuppah held three chandeliers and was draped in gray to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. We had a lot of mercury glass accents throughout the space and pops of soft pink. My favorite parts were the personal accents, like the wedding photos we had of family members on the place card table. The music and guests really made the party. We had the Larry King Orchestra, who were amazing, and our friends and family danced all night long. We had just under 300 people at the wedding. Ben is from Ohio and my Mom is originally from New York which meant a lot of travel for our guests. We are so appreciative that they made the trip just to celebrate with us!

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS: As soon as I put on the Monique Llhulier Crème Brulee dress in the honey color, I knew it was my wedding dress. It had the exact old world glamorous feel that I was looking for. I wore metallic Jimmy Choo slingback shoes, which went perfectly with the honey color of the dress. I wore my grandmother’s pearl and diamond bangle as my “something old” and the Anna Beth pink quartz earrings to add a timeless elegance to the look. The earrings were the inspiration for the color palette of the flowers at the wedding.

It’s that time of year! Feeling motivated and determined to stay on course, but, let’s be honest – how many New Year’s resolutions have you kept past January? We’re with you. With 365 new days to make and stick to goals, we’re making one easy for you: taking better care of your jewelry! DRD pieces are meant to be worn, loved and shared each day – not placed in a box, waiting for a special occasion. To extend the life of your jewelry, please follow these few easy tips & tricks:

  • Take off your jewelry before your daily rituals such as: showering, lotion, perfume, etc.
  • Leave your jewelry at home before engaging in strenuous activities such as working out.
  • Do not wear your jewelry to the beach or the pool to avoid exposure to harsh chemicals.
  • Exposure to makeup, oil, and dyes can diminish the sparkle of your jewelry.
  • Your jewels need their beauty sleep, too. Before bedtime, lay your jewelry out flat.
  • For necklaces, clasp the necklace when removing it to assure the chain does not tangle or knot.

DRD Bride: Janice Ong Chiodo

9 Dec

Dana Rebecca Designs Bride Janice Ong Chiodo Bridal Jewelry

One of our favorite clients, Janice, tied the knot in a fun-filled dance reception in Philadelphia, wearing our Jessica Leigh drop earrings. Featured as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, the earrings added the perfect touch to her modern wedding!

THE COUPLE: Six years ago, we met at work in NYC. I always thought highly of Tim, but just considered him a friend, not knowing that he actually had a crush on me the whole time. For 3 years, we were friends and enjoyed going to concerts together (JayZ/Eminem, Usher, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi). Eventually, a mutual co-worker/friend planted a seed in my head that Tim would make a great boyfriend and I couldn’t disagree. Tim finally confessed to me that I was his “#1 draft pick” all those years, and as they say, the rest is history!

THE PARTY: Our wedding was a black tie event at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. The ceremony took place in the planetarium, which was filled with candles. The reception was in the main hall of the museum with a larger-than-life Ben Franklin statue looking on. The color scheme was white, blush, and gray flowers accented by mercury glass vases and votives. Our first dance started off to Stevie Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of My Life”, but quickly segued into a choreographed hip-hop routine to “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. Our biggest focus was that the reception be a non-stop dance party, and the band Go Go Gadjet made this all come true! As a final treat, the guests were surprised with a Philly cheesesteak truck as they exited the museum.

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS: I’m a huge fan of DRD and always knew that I would wear a piece of DRD jewelry at my wedding. In fact, I bought my wedding earrings (Jessica Leigh in white gold) before I even picked the dress! The next purchase was my Lazaro wedding gown, which I chose during my first day of wedding dress shopping at Kleinfeld’s. My shoes were glittery Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, which completed the look.

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

I wear at least one piece of DRD jewelry in my everyday life! My favorites include my Sylvie Rose necklace, Anna Beth earrings, Margo Ashley earrings, XO initial cuff, and Lauren Joy bracelet. I have also been lucky to have gotten to know Dana as a friend over the years so I always knew that I wanted to wear a piece of her jewelry on my wedding day!

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

The Jessica Leigh earrings are perfect for a night on the town or any special event (party / wedding). They are now my go-to “dress up” earrings, and whenever I wear them now, I think fondly of my wedding day.
