Retailer Spotlight: Greenwich St. Jewelers



Today we are excited to introduce you our retailer in New York City, Greenwich St. Jewelers!

In a city full of big-name jewelry brands, it’s natural to yearn for a more intimate, personal experience when selecting jewelry. That is what sisters Jennifer and Christina Gandia decided to do when they took over the family jewelry business more than a decade ago.

Started by their parents in 1976 in lower Manhattan, Greenwich St. Jewelers had long offered exceptional service and an unusual level of onsite expertise. But the sisters’ dream of adding a broad range of services and a fashionable, curated selection of jewelry was visionary.

Today, Greenwich St. Jewelers presents a carefully chosen assortment of styles from sought-after and emerging designers, exquisite custom design work, and an extensive selection of engagement and wedding rings. All of this, in a boutique setting in the downtown Manhattan.

Greenwich St. Jewelers will be hosting our annual trunk show November 4-6 ! Join us to meet the designer and see the latest pieces in our collection. We look forward to seeing you all there!

A Picture Perfect Proposal


One of our favorite things to celebrate with our clients are their proposals! We feel so privileged to be able to be a part of such a special occasion and love to celebrate the love that each and every couple has for one another.

Meet one of our newest Single Stone Couples, Nick and Paulette. Nick proposed to Paulette in the south of France with a beautiful custom Savannah ring. Here, Nick tells us about how they met, the proposal, and more!

Q: How did you meet?

We actually first met through my younger sister Wendy. Wendy and my fiancé Paulette became best friends when they were in college together at College of Charleston. Eventually, after she graduated, Paulette moved up to New York City where I was living. We had met before, but hadn’t really spent time together, and we had each previously been involved in other relationships. We connected immediately when we spent more time together in NYC, and when my sister gave both of us her blessing and encouragement, I asked Paulette on our first date. The rest is history!

Q: Tell us about the proposal!

After spending a couple of days in Aix-en-Provence, we left for a surprise destination… I had booked a couple of nights at a great hotel in Eze, near Nice.  Once we arrived, we took a little stroll around the gardens, and then got ready for dinner. I snuck out and gave my phone to one of the concierge so that she could take secret video footage of the coming proposal. After we were ready, we walked down to a beautiful platform in the garden overlooking the Mediterranean to enjoy the view, and that’s where I proposed!

Q:What did she think of the ring?

She absolutely LOVES the ring, and I could not have been more proud and happy to finally give it to her. It was an extreme test of my patience to keep it tucked away in our apartment for so long- especially given how badly I wanted her to see it and how excited I was to propose. It was such a special moment, and hers is such a special ring- she talks about how much she adores it every day, and it makes me so happy to catch her admiring it.

Congratulations you two! Thank you for sharing your love story with us!

Couple Spotlight- Zack and Delsie



Q: How did you meet?

When Zack was 19 and I was 16, he worked at Family Video in our little hometown. I went in late one night to drop off some movies, and he was there working by himself. The rest is history! He actually asked my friend for her number, so I thought he was going to chase after her…until he asked her for my number later that evening. We connected right off the bat, and though it took us some years to find our way back to each other, we both think it was worth the wait! 

Q: How did you know he/she was the one?

Zack claims he knew from the very beginning. 🙂

The moment that I revisit every time I’m asked this question is one evening when we were together late at night—Zack had gotten off work at almost midnight, so we spent a lot of late nights together since our schedules were so different—and on this particular night, it was so late that everything we did and said was funny. We stayed up until almost 5 in the morning laughing at anything and everything. Zack has always been so easy for me to connect with, but this night was so much fun that I knew it was how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. I wanted to smile and love life every day, and I knew that with him in my life, this would be as easy as breathing.

Q: How did he propose?

           The two of us took a beach trip to North Carolina in March of 2015. It was perfect weather all week, until the day he planned on proposing; then, it became chilly and dreary. It rained all day the day before we were to head home. I was bummed because I wanted to go to the beach with him, and I was afraid we were going to be rained out. When it stopped, I was bound and determined that no matter how cold and dark it was, we were going to go walk on the beach together. Since it had rained all day, when we got there, the beach was completely empty. There was no one there but the two of us. We walked for a little while, then down to the water…that’s when it happened. It was so peaceful and intimate, and I never thought I would be so thankful for a rainy day at the beach! 

Q: What was your favorite moment from your wedding?

            Both of us agree that our favorite part of our day was when we saw each other for the first time as I walked down the aisle. On our wedding day, I didn’t get nervous or upset or worked up a single time. Everything was so easy and smooth, and I couldn’t wait to see him. I was an emotional wreck. I teared up at the slightest little thing, as I was in such disbelief at how lucky I am to spend the rest of my life with the perfect man. I knew I was emotional, but not until the church doors opened and I walked down the aisle did I realize how emotional Zack was, too. His face was so priceless. And at that point, no one else mattered.

DB Creativity- “5 Mistakes brides make when it comes to floral.”

floralLets face it.. when it comes to floral choices for your wedding, it can be hard to choose! There are so many beautiful options. We got a chance to talk with Laura Hazzard, past Single Stone client and wedding planner extraordinaire at DB Creativity, and get her insight to the “5 Mistakes brides make when it comes to floral.”



  1. Not considering line of sight

When picking out your centerpiece design, oftentimes brides do not think about the line of site in the room. A lot of the styled shoots you see on Pinterest are misleading because they aren’t practical for a table setting and comfort of your guest.

  A low centerpiece draws the eye down to the table and can act as a great conversation piece for your guests. If you are going tall – keep it high and thin. Our rule of thumb is it must be taller than 18 inches to not impact the guest line of site at the table.

  1. Buying vs. Renting

Many couples go on a spending frenzy when they find deals at Michaels, downtown, or even Etsy. However, this may not be the most cost effective route – and really, do you want to own 20 tree stump vases after your wedding? Rental is almost always the most affordable route when choosing containers for your centerpieces. Also, there is a concern that what you purchase cannot be used by your florist to achieve the look you are going for.


  1. Choosing overly-fragrant flowers

We always recommend our couples stay away from fragrant flowers. There are so many people that suffer from allergies, and the scent can also impact how your food tastes at the table. This includes flowers like lilies, hyacinth, tuberose, or freesia. Some options that have little to no fragrance include hydrangea, orchids, most standard roses, and many more…

  1. Not having the proper lighting

So often we’ve seen couples choose BEAUTIFUL designs but choose not to include lighting in their budget. When the lights go down for dancing, all of the centerpieces disappear in the dark. Pinspots or candles are always recommended if your venue does not provide any type of dimming light source.


  1. Seasons are important!

Many brides come to us wanting peonies or dahlias which only bloom beautifully during certain times in the year. Requesting these flowers off-season can be very pricey or result in low-quality flowers. One of our favorites, the garden rose, you can get all year long in so many different colors.

Couple Spotlight- Brian and Brit


Today we are excited to introduce our newest Single Stone Couple, Brian and Brit! This adorable duo met while teaching as camp counselors and the rest was pretty much history. To see their love story and incredibly romantic wedding scroll below!


Q: How did you meet?

Brit and I both worked as camp counselors at a summer camp in Indiana- Camp Tecumseh YMCA- in 2010. We were both working with the same age group of kids and met during staff training. We bonded pretty quickly and over the course of the summer our friendship turned romantic. We started dating at the end of the summer and the rest is history! 

Q: How did you know he/she was the one?

Brian: Funny story- I actually had a girlfriend at the start of camp that summer. It didn’t take long to realize there was something about Brit. She always made me feel home wherever we were. I’m not great with words and emotions but over the course of the early part of the relationship, my feelings became obvious to me and everyone around. Later that year I was sitting at home and it all clicked- I knew I had to hold on to this one forever.

Brit: There was something about Brian from the moment I met him. I’m not sure if I believe in love at first sight, but I was drawn to him like I’d never been drawn to anyone before. Every time I was around him that summer, I knew it was different and he was somebody worth pursuing (despite the obvious obstacle). I’m not exactly positive when I knew for sure he was the one, but it’s safe to say I was the first to know 🙂 

Q: How did he propose?

Brian’s story:

Brit had told me that when I was ready to pop the question, I should reach out to her best friend, Corinne, for ring help. Corinne and I spent hours scouring the web, and she stumbled upon Single Stone. In total guy move, I went into Single Stone the week we left for Europe. Thankfully, Molly set me up with the ring of Brit’s dreams. Props to Corinne! 

Brit and I had a trip planned to Europe, and I decided to propose on the trip. I had asked Brit where she thought the most romantic place in the world is, and she said “Paris.” So, on our trip, I planned to propose at the Eiffel Tower. I was super calm and didn’t show my nerves at all (sarcasm), and right as the sun set behind the Eiffel Tower, I asked her to marry me. 

Brit’s story:

We spent a very long day in Paris touring the Palace of Versailles. On the train ride home, Brian implored me to get ready quickly so we could go take dressed-up pictures before our scheduled dinner. I was NOT having it. I wanted to nap so badly, but Brian was being super weird about wanting to take these pictures (we had been to the Eiffel Tower twice already), so I agreed to go. Glad I did! 

Q: What was your favorite moment from the wedding?

After we finished taking our post-ceremony pictures, we went back to cabin where we had all gotten ready to wipe off some sweat before introductions- it was the hottest Labor Day weekend on record in Indiana. When we got inside the cabin, we found our entire bridal party and most of our immediate family jamming out and passing around a handle of Fireball. Many of the groomsmen were in a band with Brian, and one (Rob) played us down the aisle on acoustic guitar. It was so much fun having everyone reunited in a moment we did not plan!  

Q: Anything else you want to share?

We invited the Director of Camp Tecumseh to be our officiant for the wedding. He was the one who hired us both to work that summer. It was meaningful to have everything come full circle.

Solstice Bride


Solstice 0079

Today we are excited to introduce you to Orla, the owner of Solstice bride! Orla started Solstice Bride to offer Brides to be a fresh alternative to mainstream bridal salons. Her chic bridal boutique is located on the second floor above all the hustle and bustle on Abbott Kinney and provides a thoughtfully curated selection of wedding gowns in a fun and unpretentious vibe.

After visiting her beautiful showroom we sat down with Orla and asked her for a couple “tips and tricks” for finding the perfect wedding gown.

To see more read more below!

Q: What style gowns does Solstice bride carry?

Our selection of gowns are effortless and fuss free, a reinvention of the traditional – evoking LA’s bohemian spirit and Rock and Roll edge. From modern and simple to classic and romantic,  a bride can wear them with a veil at a Malibu vineyard, wildflowers in Joshua Tree or barefoot in the sand. 

Q:What are some of the current bridal trends?

I’ve seen a lot of brides loving bridal separates, long sleeves, exposed backs and personalized accessories. Our bride isn’t really one to follow mainstream bridal trends- she wears what she feels beautiful in. A bride’s wedding day look should be an extension of her personality and make her feel like the most elevated version of her everyday self. Our gowns allow her individuality to shine through. 

Q:What is your advice for a bride to pick out the perfect wedding gown?

 Come with an open mind. Our most popular dress is one that often gets overlooked by brides on the hanger, but once it’s on the body it’s a knockout. 

Q: What should you expect to spend on your wedding gown?

Our gowns range from $2,000 – $7,000.  I also warn brides to leave room in their budget for alterations as those can cost anywhere from $150-$700. 

Q: How far in advance should you start looking for your wedding gown?

I recommend that you begin shopping for your dress at least 8 months before your wedding, as it can take up to 6 months for your gown to arrive. I also suggest giving yourself an extra 1-2 months for alterations leading up to your wedding date.

Q: Any other advice for our Single Stone brides?

Once you find your dress, get off Pinterest and stop looking at other gowns. You will drive yourself crazy with second guessing and doubt.

*Single Stone tip- When you plan your visit to Solstice Bride be sure to bring your girlfriends, bridesmaids, squad, and make a day of it! Stop at some of our favorites spots- The Butcher’s Daughter, Burro, Blue Bottle, and The Juicy Leaf.
