Alternative Engagement or Wedding Bands and Rings

The only rules in fashion these days is that there are no rules! That even goes for bridal and bridal jewelry, especially at Peggy Li Creations jewelry.

Alternative engagement rings allow the giver to express a more personal touch, whether it is using stones other than diamond, or something symbolic about their special relationship with the person they love.

I've had both my Teardrop Ring and Arrow ring be used as wedding/engagement rings! Just going to show that a ring doesn't have to be expensive, or even precious, to be able to seal the deal.  Here are some fun and simple rings to consider for your engagement or wedding ring or maybe even just a push present or anniversary gift!

Diamond Hug Ring - alternative wedding band
Diamond Hug Ring - sterling silver, champagne diamond.
Love Ring alternative engagement ring
Love Ring, need we say more?

Teardrop Ring alternative engagement rings
Teardrop Rings - a client ordered 3 rings in 3 different metals to represent their kids.

Thick band ring with diamond alternative engagement ring
Thick band ring with yellow diamond - Go big or go home! A cool, modern take on traditional engagement or wedding ring!

Teeny Gem Rings, stack them any way you like and choose gems that have meaning to you for alternative wedding bands.

Arrow Ring
Arrow Ring - a customer used this to propose to his girlfriend! The symbol had meaning to them and that's what's important for any engagement ring.

Which picks are your favorite? What was your engagement ring like? Post in the comments, below!

Felicity Smoak Earrings Jewelry Arrow Season 3

The best part of having Peggy Li Creations jewelry on Arrow is that I am truly a fan of the show! Arrow, starring Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy, Colton Haynes and Willa Holland is about DC comic hero Oliver Queen. His girl Friday and love interest is tech wiz Felicity Smoak (Rickards), who is not the typical leading lady in that she is geeky, awkward and an integral part of Team Arrow. Felicity wasn't originally a main character on the show, but the writers, after seeing the actors' chemistry in their first scenes together, immediately recognized character gold.

Season 3 of Arrow finds Oliver a true hero of Starling City, but finding new foes in Ray Palmer and the emergence of Ras Al Ghul. Felicity wants to date Oliver, but can Oliver be himself and the Arrow? We'll find out in season 3!

Some of Felicity's jewelry looks so far. She favors big, dangly earrings over studs and charm necklaces that contrast her usually boldly colored dresses and separates. I like to think of Felicity as a bit of my alter ego, if I had stayed with my job in the tech world!

Felicity visits Barry Allen on the first Flash/Arrow crossover episode! She wears her Aqua Triangle Earrings and my Thorny Hearts Necklace (appropriate, since Oliver had just broken her heart the episode before).
I LOVE Felicity in this soft draped blouse and my Gem Cascade Earrings! It's an  great office look that is still super sexy.

Peggy Li Creations and Boticca

It's been a few months since my web store on website Boticca has shuttered, but I thought I should let my customers know that I loved being a part of the Boticca community! It was/is such an amazing group of artists and I was proud to be among them.

Unfortunately back in May, for reasons not entirely obvious to me, Boticca decided to close my shop on their website. I was very, very, disappointed, as I felt I had a nice, steady following there, and I was always excited to place new designs into the Boticca shop. Boticca had proven to be an amazing opportunity to get my jewelry designs in front of a more international audience and had grown into an important source of income for my work.

I hope anyone who purchased items from me on Boticca is able to find this post or my website, Peggy Li Creations http://www.peggyli.com and will continue to shop with me!

Style Inspiration - Jennifer Lawrence Diamond Spike Earrings

I did a double take when I saw this photo of the lovely actress Jennifer Lawrence at a Hunger Games: Catching Fire press event. Not only was her new, choppy haircut amazing, but she looked fresh and beautiful in simple makeup. Even better, her accessories, of course! Her earrings were edgy, sparkly, and stunning. After doing a little research, I found out these earrings were EF Collection and well over $1,000 in cost!

Luckily, you can get the same look for less with my Peggy Li Creations Diamond Spike Earrings. I have them in two finishes, oxidized sterling silver or a rose gold plate over sterling, featuring a row of rough cut diamonds. These spike earrings are dramatic and beautiful! Find them at peggyli.com.

My Diamond Spike earrings come on French leverback earwires for even extra security when you wear them. Lucy Hale, who plays Aria on TV show Pretty Little Liars also wore a similar look, see my blog post about her PeopleStylewatch earrings here.

Vampire Diaries Season 6 Promo Picture - Elena

Who's excited for The Vampire Diaries season 6? I certainly am. After the season 5 finale, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) were left in purgatory/dead and Elena had finally made her choice -- Damon, of course. Soon we'll get to see what Stefan, Matt, Caroline and the rest of the Mystic Falls crew will tackle this new season. Will Damon and Bonnie stay "dead"? How has the Travelers spell changed Mystic Falls? Who is in bed with Stefan? There are only a few things for certain; tears, biting, love and drama.

Every season each network TV show will release promotional photos of the cast members of each TV show. I was thrilled to see the photo released for Elena. She is wearing an amazing black gown and looking fabulous! And her earrings? Peggy Li Creations Geo Calder Earrings in 14k gold-filled.
