Jane Pope launched her first jewelry line in 2001 and was immediately picked up by Barney’s New York. How is that for beginner’s luck? Since then, she has grown her business into a fine jewelry line that works with precious metals and stone incorporating nature’s imperfect lines. Jane Pope Jewelry is a favorite of stylish celebrities and has been seen on Emmy Red Carpets and on The Today Show. While her studio is now located in downtown Spartanburg, SC she once was in the upstairs studio space here at Soiree. We are a big fan of her line, so today we are showing some of our favorite pieces and getting to know more about Jane! These pieces all make for gorgeous wedding pieces for those looking for something off of the traditional beaten path.

After our earlier post this week where we shared tips for keeping your hands and nails in shape to best show off your ring, we thought it would be fun to also share some of our favorite engagement rings from one of our favorite spots in town (in case you’re in the market)! Croghan’s Jewel Box is a 100-year-old family jewelry store on King Street here in Charleston, and I had so much fun playing dress up there while my friend Corbin Gurkin took photos of the styles on the top of our wish list. From simple to ornate, it’s important that your personal style is reflected in the ring you choose. There are so many ring shapes and sizes that it can be overwhelming to pick just one, but hopefully this list will help you narrow it down, and Rhett and Mariana at Croghan’s will be sure to answer any other questions you might have!

Our first pick is Croghan’s Single Stone Yellow Gold & Diamond Ring. This stunning ring features a 1.3 carat rose cut diamond surrounded by old European cut diamonds and an 18 karat yellow gold band. This ring is perfect pick for a timeless look that will never go out of style.

This Old European Cut Diamond Ring is breathtaking with .78 carats of Old European cut diamonds and a 14K gold Estate Piece Set. It’s bound to make anyone fall in love!

Oui Oui! This platinum pick is the Single Stone Old European Ring and features a 2.61 carat Oec Diamond, surrounded by .85 carats of French cut diamonds. The look of a single stone allows the beauty of the diamond to stand out on any finger size.

Our fourth pick has an old school flare, but features a breathtaking 2.35 carat Gia certified diamond surrounded by .6 carat diamonds. Contact Croghan’s for a similar style.

This Estate Edwardian platinum ring features a 2.01 carat diamond and stopped us in our tracks! Croghan’s sells lots of Estate rings, which you can find on their site here.

Our next pick is fairly ornate, but the simplicity of a band makes for an elegant and beautifully understated look. This platinum band has .75 carat diamonds and is the perfect complement to any style.

And when you’re ready, don’t forget the band! Croghan’s has a great selection and we especially love the ones from Single Stone. Happy shopping ladies and cheers to your engagement!
