No matter how much you adore your wedding dress, you (usually) only wear it once. Don’t let the same thing happen to your bridal jewels! Choose at least one timeless piece of jewelry for your wedding day, and you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.
Fine bridal jewelry doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Although you may want to consider spending a little less on the dress, and a little more on the jewelry. After all, the jewelry will last longer. If you want the look of diamonds, but want to keep costs down, consider Swarovski crystals or Moissanite. For the look of gold at a fraction of the cost, consider Vermeil or gold-plated pieces.
When the time comes to choose your bridal jewelry suite, there are many classic options, such as diamond pendants, pearl strands, and pendant necklaces. You can find gorgeous sets in keepsake boxes that you'll treasure forever.
There are also many ways to make traditional metals and stones feel fresh and contemporary. A multi-strand pearl bracelet with a bold clasp is modern and romantic. Pair it with London topaz drops for a splash of blue. A sterling silver charm bracelet with a single charm to commemorate your wedding day can become a beautiful heirloom as charms are added on future special occasions. Consider layering sterling silver and pearl bracelets for a contemporary take on classic pearls.
The following bridal pieces, available from Girls' Guide to Glitz's fabulous affiliates, are an excellent mix of quality and value, each of them a worthy candidate for wedding-day wear and future enjoyment.
