We at Anouk Jewelry love creating unique engagement ring designs for alternative brides. We are inspired by non-traditional gemstones, such as marquise sapphires and diamonds, and love setting them in our alternative engagement rings. Recently Today’s Bride featured our Marquise Champagne Sapphire Halo Ring in a gorgeous French Style wedding photoshoot created by the talented Audrey and Yuuna Events.
The Marquise Champagne Sapphire Halo ring is a variation of another Anouk design, the Marquise Diamond Solitaire Ring. Both are cast in 14k yellow gold, and feature a larger gemstone. As we frequently create custom designs and unique engagement rings, the gem selection varies according to personal preferences and budget.
If diamonds aren’t your cup of tea, we are happy to suggest a wonderful alternative in form of green sapphires. We created this beauty with a three-quarter carat green sapphire for a non-traditional engagement ring look.
We offer yellow, white and pink gold, as well as palladium for most of our designs.
The soft colours and the romantic look of this wedding inspiration remind us of the informal French country event. Relaxed backyard atmosphere serves as the perfect backdrop to our luxurious engagement ring. The marquise champagne sapphire ring pairs beautifully with one of our curved wedding bands. They are designed to match perfectly and showcase a larger gemstone of the engagement ring. Therefore, with, or without accent stones, a curved or a V-shaped wedding band would be the perfect background to a marquise gemstone engagement ring.
Audrey Varengue, of Audrey and Yuuna Events, planned this gorgeous French-inspired styled shoot. Here’s what she had to say about the inspiration. “I am from the south of France myself, and living in Canada now. My inspiration comes from there – the love and nostalgia of La Provence, cicadas and olive trees and blue French shutters. I wanted to create organic, romantic south of France décor with all that: sunflowers and lavender fields, olive trees, blue and white china, terracotta pots, baskets for the market, yummy french desserts and herbes de Provence.”
