For the Ethically-Minded Bride - A Styled Shoot

Caitlin McCord

Sarah O. Jewelry recently participated in a styled shoot unlike any other we've ever had the pleasure of being involved with. This photoshoot focused on vendors whose main objective is to provide ethically sourced and sustainable options for your Big Day. Many also work alongside non-profit organizations to help with everything from cleaning the oceans to providing support for sex trafficking victims. Take a look below to see the ethical beauty that came to be! 


The Rings

 The featured ring is made with a Golden Sheen Sapphire as the focal point. This breathtaking stone, discovered by renowned gem dealer Tanzim Khan, was not released to the market until January 1, 2014, making it a very new player on the engagement ring scene. The dramatic folding light that emulates from the Golden Sheen Sapphire has drawn comparisons to the Northern Lights, which lead Khan to name this new phenomenon the Aurora Effect. No two are the same which makes it a perfect choice for the unique bride-to-be.
