1. CLASSIC BEAUTY 

Erika Winters’ romantic, handcrafted Caroline halo ring ($24,750 at Erika Winters Fine Jewelry) sets the stage for this classically modern silver and white invitation. The rounded shape of the ring’s 2.64-carat antique cushion-cut diamond surrounded by milgrain detail is replicated in the invitation’s finely beaded inset that surrounds the text. Price upon request from Copper Willow Paper Studio in El Segundo. Ring shown in the Mrs. Box, $75. 

2. POOLSIDE MUSE 

This timeless 2-carat Asscher-cut diamond ring in white gold surrounded by 22 glittering baguette diamonds ($68,500, from Martin Katz in Beverly Hills) sent Pigment & Parchment’s imagination to the famous pool at Hearst Castle. The shimmering, hand-painted wedding suite boasts splashes of blue watercolor with gold-ink calligraphy on 40-pound paper mounted on gold foil. Each golden envelope is adorned with a vintage stamp. Wedding suites starting at $350, from Pigment & Parchment in Sacramento.

3. LUX IN LOVE 

The Fortuna diamond ring features a halo of diamond accents that curve gently around a stunning emerald-cut diamond (starting at $2,250 for setting, from Brilliant Earth in Los Angeles and San Francisco). The classic setting pairs beautifully with laser-cut acrylic invitations from Jasmin Michelle Designs, which are mounted onto a handmade velvet folio with a customizable monogram mirror-finish emblem and precious ribbon closure.

4. LA VIE EN ROSE

Inspiration for this intricate blush and gold invitation suite bloomed from this handmade, floral-shaped white gold ring (starting at $8,995, Aspen Diamond Company in Los Angeles).
