Ice Storm!

Weather Warning : Ice Storm arrives in DC! This bling-credible photo comes from our friends at I Gorman Jewelers in Washington DC who have just received all these beautiful new MaeVona styles…one of our Facebook fans said she had ‘frostbite’ just from admiring them! It also started to snow here in NYC right as we posted this…so we better be careful what we wish for!! Head on down to I Gorman’s gorgeous store and check these rings out in person today. They also carry a beautiful selection of fine European Art jewelry from many unique makers that you don’t find anywhere else in..

Fancy that!

We just love fancy shape diamonds here at MaeVona. The challenge of setting them elegantly into a practical ring that will stand the test of time is one we relish! Fancy shape accent diamonds can add so much to an engagement ring, and we particularly love to use them to frame a traditionally shaped center stone. Our beautiful EDAY enagement ring pictured here is a great example, as is GLASGOW (see below) – both feature pear shape, marquise or half moon diamonds to complement and balance the center stone. Look closely! These are such beautiful diamond rings. Check out how the Celtic-inspired..

Emerald diamond heaven!

Can’t quite put my finger on what I love most about emerald cut diamonds…the cut is so modern but also so timeless. There is just something so elegant and beautiful about them. The way the light catches the elongated facets…sigh! They definitely have the X-factor. At MaeVona we have always loved doing something different with this special diamond cut. The Celtic-inspired details in our INVERARAY and WESTRAY engagement rings are just the right balance of delicacy and detail to frame emerald cuts. We love the way they look in all Platinum or white gold, but the rose gold is absolutely..

Welcome to our Dark Side!

Welcome to our dark side! This beautiful new ad just came out in the May issue of INSTORE magazine. We decided to go with this dark, glamorous black background to make our rose gold, diamonds and Platinum really pop. What do you think? Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes of what goes into making just this one image… Step one – choose rings that go together stylistically. We chose a mixture of our Celtic-inspired brand new and classic styles, from back to front: OBAN (so new it is not on the website yet!), SKYE/pave, NOSS/pave (also brand new!),..

100K Facebook Milestone!

  Today we are celebrating reaching 100K likes on Facebook. It’s a huge milestone for us, and we are grateful to each and every one of our fans for making us what we are today. We launched MaeVona with the intention of becoming known as the most sought after, hottest bridal brand in America – no small feat for a previously unknown company, which began as the dream of Maeve Gillies, a young artist growing up in the beautiful country of Scotland, 3000 miles away. Since launch in 2005 in New York City, MaeVona has truly become known as a..

MaeVona Bestsellers!

MaeVona has done extremely well with a lot of different rings. Among the bestsellers are the CAVA, SHAPINSAY, CANNA, WESTRAY and BORERAY. These five rings are part of the MaeVona Scottish Islands collection as they are named after different Scottish Islands. They are special because they have a plain solitaire look, yet have exquisite designs that give you value for your money. These unique metal designs are a classic MaeVona look, but we combined these classic styles with the simplicity of solitaries. What makes these rings stand out is there prong styles. Like many MaeVona rings, the prongs are extremely..

Whisky on the Rocks!

Last night we held an amazing event with our exclusive Manhattan retailer Michael C Fina, featuring a sneak preview of our latest bridal designs, and a special tasting of rare Scotch, courtesy of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Twenty lucky guests had the opportunity to try unique and rare single malt, single cask whisky that is only available to members of the Society, while admiring our brand new styles. The guests ranged from whisky lovers to avid MaeVona fans and ring owners, who jumped at the rare opportunity to meet the designer of their rings, Maeve Gillies in person. The elegant..
