You Won’t Believe Your Eyes

October 27, 2017  |  Bridal Jewelry, Gift Ideas, New Arrivals
This holiday season you don’t have to believe in magic to bring
a little sparkle with you wherever you go!

They say “seeing is believing,” but I can tell you right now, even once you see Patty’s new collection of Cubic Zirconia jewelry, you still won’t believe they’re not diamonds.

Pictures hardly ever do these beauties justice, but the quality of these CZ are top of the line. Anyone who knows Patty personally, knows she loves her diamonds, and she has a seasoned, trained eye when it comes to these, so you can rely on her to only put out the very best.

Not only are they great treats to give to yourself, these babies are gonna be hot items for the rapidly approaching holiday season. Their affordable price points and wide appeal of the different styles makes it easy for you to find fabulous gifts for women 18 to 80.

The designs Patty has created for this dazzling new line are so perfectly classic that they will instantly become a staple of your wear-everywhere, wear-anywhere jewelry collection. With varying sizes from the most delicate, understated, tiny touch of diamond to a fuller, more substantial CZ pendants, these timeless styles are equally suitable for everyday wear as they are for special, formal occasions.

The new CZ line is currently available at Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry in New York City and is coming this weekend to Circles in Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany.

Mother Of The Bride Jewelry Dos & Don’ts by Sophisticated Weddings Magazine

mother of the bride jewelry by patty tobin

Like mother, like daughter… both are wearing pearls by Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry.

Do: Coordinate with the wedding style and color scheme… Don’t: Match the bridesmaids.

Your mother holds a unique place in your heart and your wedding. Don’t make the mistake of grouping her into the look you’ve delegated for your bridesmaids. Instead, consider letting Mom look and feel distinguished in a role that is all her own. A great way for her to achieve a radiant look that also complements the tone of the wedding is to reflect the color scheme with a gemstone in Mom’s jewelry.

The Monique Lhuillier Fine Jewelry collection features blue sapphires, mirroring a navy color scheme exquisitely. The only thing that could make this more perfect is if the bride walks down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier gown, really tying the elements of design together.

Do: Incorporate a special memory into Mom’s jewelry… Don’t: Overlook that the little things matter too.

A small but significant detail can say a thousand words. Sharing a lifetime of memories and experiences, there has never been a more perfect time to pay homage to the journey that led you here.

Maps by A.Jaffe make for an incredibly thoughtful gift that is sure to ignite special memories. Honor the place you and Mom hold dear with a modern heirloom that tells the story of a beloved place in the world, and in your hearts. Each custom-made piece is engraved with the special location of your choice, pinpointed by a diamond to mark the spot.

Do: Go Classic, but modern… Don’t: Wear a bulky necklace that was on-trend circa 1987.

Mom needs something new to commemorate this occasion. After all, she will cherish this day for years to come, and neither of you should look back on family portraits with regret. It is amazing what confidence a new piece of jewelry can inspire. Encourage Mom to update her look while staying true to her classic roots in this gorgeous pearl necklace by Patty Tobin.

Do: Honor the important women in your life that have shaped the person you are today by inviting them to participate in the selection experience… Don’t: Forget to share a special bonding experience just with Mom.

Moms, aunts, sisters- two things are certain: they’ve been there for you through it all, and they love a touch of frosting. By inviting them along- whether your stepmom or mother-in-law to be- this is a great way to honor the relationship, and show that person how much they mean to you. London Jewelers offers an endless variety to suit every taste and occasion, and is the perfect destination to bring your loved ones. Just make sure that you get some one-on-one time with Mom too. You’re about to marry the man of your dreams, but you’ll always be her little girl.

Do: Take this opportunity to go custom… Don’t: Just assume Mom has something lying around.

Reserve the something old and borrowed for your bridal look- not theirs! Your mother is like a snowflake- there’s simply nothing and no one on the planet like her. It might seem like no matter how much of a selection there is, no one piece truly captures her magic. Creating a custom piece of jewelry is a wonderful way to give Mom something that no one else can have.

Whether you work your artistic side to create a piece by your own invention, or collaborate with a jewelry designer, you can be sure that Mom wears something that was literally made for her. Jewelry designers at Greenwich Jewelers work hand-in-hand with clients to make one-of-a-kind creations. Beginning with pencil and paper to sketch ideas, and working closely together as the vision comes to life, there is nothing that isn’t possible to properly capture Mom’s beauty.

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10th.

 

Behind The Scenes at our “Mother of the Bride” Photo Shoot for Patty Tobin Jewelry

Mother and daughter relaxing together in between photos at our shoot for Patty Tobin Mother of the Bride Jewelry.

Patty Tobin readers, I’d like to introduce you to two very special ladies:

Meet Kathy & Kienan Lacey
(pictured above).

Sophisticated Weddings’ own Steve Sendor personally photographing our Mother of the Bride campaign at the Lacey-Hoge residence on Park Ave.

This beautiful — and real life — mother and daughter duo will appear later this month for Patty Tobin in the 2015 New York Edition of Sophisticated Weddings. The release of the magazine’s 2015 bridal book will kickoff our first (“official”) Patty Tobin Mother of the Bride wedding jewelry campaign!

This time last year, the 2014 publication of Sophisticated Weddings New York Edition marked the launch of our first formal Patty Tobin Bridal Collection. We ran our first national full-page advertisement for Patty Tobin Bridal and saw our jewelry styled with several incredible wedding gowns for the magazine’s 2014 feature story. It was especially exciting to see Patty Tobin alongside impressive designer names like Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier, Galia Lahav, and Dennis Basso (exclusive for Kleinfeld).

In the upcoming issue, you can expect to see Kathy and Kienan modeling the Patty Tobin pearl necklaces worn at Kienan’s 2014 wedding in New York City. A full-scale black tie event held at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens last fall, both mother and daughter looked flawless in their unique South Sea and Freshwater Pearl creations.

Bride, Kienan, with mom, Kathy, at their family home for our Mother of the Bride photo shoot.

For her wedding day, the bride wanted to be “dripping in pearls” while still striking a balance with her dress so as not to be too over the top. As we do with many of our brides, Patty decided to design two custom pieces for Kienan in order to achieve the look she wanted. Using a hand-picked combination of creamy-white baroque Freshwater Pearls separated by small sections of 18K Vermeil chain, Patty created an elegant “floating” look for the bride’s necklace. Using two 40″ chains instead of one long, Kienan was able to style and adjust her necklaces to fall exactly where she wanted them. By spacing out the pearls with delicate vermeil chain, Patty created a look that was at once subtle and a statement. The vermeil sections in between the pearls gave the bride an elegant hint of glistening gold as she moved throughout the day while not competing with or overwhelming the beauty of the pearls’ natural luster.

Worn by mother of the bride, Kathy Lacey: Patty Tobin Couture 16MM South Sea Pearl Necklace with diamond and gold clasp.

For mother of the bride, Kathy, a beautiful strand of South Sea Pearls from our Couture Collection was met with love at first sight. No custom design was necessary. Before she even tried on the necklace, the moment she walked in, she saw it,  pointed to it and said, “That one!”

The necklace belongs to our Patty Tobin Couture Collection, which features a stunning assortment of large baroque South Sea Pearls; all hand-knotted on silk and finished with a 14K gold and diamond clasp. It was the perfect balance of sophistication, style and elegance to go with the black and white strapless designer ballgown she would wear for the occasion.

We are so grateful to both Kathy and Kienan, not only for their patronage and friendship, but for their continued support and overwhelming willingness to participate in this important advertising campaign we are undertaking in 2015! Ladies, we thank you both sincerely and are so happy we could be part of your magical day.
