Jane Styles: Rings

Jane Styles: Rings

Ahhhhh ring styling.  I love it.   
People always ask would I do this or do that, and the answer is yes!  I do it all.  I love experimenting with stacking rings.  

Some of my tried and true suggestions:

Mix shapes/lines - eg. Try one with straight sides, rounded, curved all worn together.  

Switch the order - Sometimes switching the order of the bands will make them look completely different.

Mix thick and thin - The thin flat bands and twig rings have an amazing ability to give depth to a stack.  It's amazing what a little texture will add to a stack.

Add a stack topper - Most people think that you should bookend rings so that there are two matching bands on either side of your main event ring.  This can be lovely, but I also love two different bands on one side (or three) with a zinger on top.  There is something incredibly balanced in the imbalance.

Don't be afraid to try things you wouldn't think are you.  You just may surprise yourself.

Jane Styles: Necklace

Jane Styles: Necklace

You may have noticed that I rarely post necklace shots on myself while rings are easy peasy. Necklaces are so tricky to get a candid studio shots. Based on instagram engagement, it doesn't seem like you love the model shots as much as the candid shots.  The truth is that they are necessary to show styling tips for necklaces.

I wouldn't advise styling too many necklaces on our smallest chain. While it is durable, delicate style chains tend to tangle and can be a mess when piled on.  I do love a mix of a couple of chains.  A longer heavier chain with a shorter delicate chain is a staple for me.  I love layering my kiddos fingerprint necklace with a shorter necklace.  

I also adore the new heavier chains with a diamond zinger or gold staple worn together. It's a nice way to give some extra volume to to your favorite simple necklace. 

Necklace styling for me is on the subtle side, but if you love to pile chains on, the more the merrier.

Custom Project UPDATES

Custom Project UPDATES

Jane Pope has had so much growth in the past few years of which we are incredibly grateful.  With growth inevitably comes some change.  We have loved working on your custom projects and are so happy to be a part of updating your special stones, engagement moments both custom and the GILD collection, and reworking.  We appreciate the love so much.  We want to better manage our time and your expectations going forward, so we are updating our custom project policy here so that we can better serve you all.

I am taking a step back from the smaller projects to focus on the collection and have lots of fun things to share on that note in the upcoming months.   We will be accepting engagement ring reworks, new engagement ring projects, and necklace reworks on stones 4mm and larger only going forward, but will not be accepting small stone reworks.  I am excited to take the time that would be spent on numerous proposals and focus on creating pieces that are true to the brand and well as my look and feel.

 

UPDATES to our policy:

 

Custom projects start at $750 and go up from there.

 

If you have a stone that you want to use for the project, prices will range from $1000-$5000 including a fee of $500 if you provide your own diamond.

 

Custom diamond engagement ring pricing, including the diamond, starts at $5000 and goes up depending on the stone and complexity of the design.

 

Proposals will be sent within 2 weeks of us receiving all of the information necessary in the questionnaire.

 

As usual, a 50% deposit is required to start the project, and the final payment is due before the project ships.

Once the deposit has been paid, we can submit a design. If you prefer a mock up before starting the project, you may pay a non-refundable $750 design fee which will be applied to your custom project when we move forward.

 

Projects take 4-6 weeks for completion from the day the deposit is paid, unless the terms of your proposal state otherwise.

Perfecting the FINGERPRINT

Perfecting the FINGERPRINT

The custom FINGERPRINT necklaces are quickly becoming a fan favorite.  Each one is so sweet and shows the personality of each child... I mean, no two are alike.  How cool and special are they.  I wanted to capture a couple of cuties in the process so I reached out to two people I knew wanted to get their little nuggets' fingerprints captured. 

First I contacted my friend Gray Benko.  I knew she wanted a slightly more delicate version of the traditional fingerprints I had done before.  Although, she deferred to me in the end for the perfect size, I decided to try to modify hers some to make them as thin and little as possible without losing any of the special quality.  I am BURSTING to see what Gray thinks of them.  They are so cute and her precious kiddos, Farris and Charlie are such characters and Gray incredibly lovely and an awesome mom.

The second person I wanted to send a test kit to was Marina Squerciati from Chicago PD. She had contacted us about a fingerprint necklace for her little girl.  Marina is such a beauty and so kind and her daughter is little, so we thought it was a perfect test client.  Her fingerprints turned out so cute and Marina sent some precious videos and pics of them capturing it with out kit.

Each kit comes with easy instructions for capturing each child's fingerprint.  The imprints don't have to be perfect.  That is often what makes them so special.  A couple of times one has looked nothing like the other it is paired with, and I have asked the parents if they want me to alter them to make the necklace more uniform.  It is typically indicative of the child's personality and they want to leave it just as it is... which I love.   These necklaces are so much fun, and getting them to clients makes me super happy.

Hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day!

xx Jane
