Wedding Fashion Jewelry
Q: Question re: wedding jewelry
Pearls or rhinestones? I'm a new Regional Manager with Liz Soto
Signatures jewelry, and want to keep a good stock of the most popular
styles of wedding/special occasion jewelry for my customers.
Will you be wearing pearl earrings on your wedding day or
How about necklace and bracelet styles?
What about your wedding attendants? Will they choose their own jewelry
to wear, will you buy it as a gift for them, or will you choose the
style and they will purchase themselves?
A:It will be a suprise from my maid of honor - I've delegated that chore! I just hope it isn't too gaudy (most likely won't be since she has great taste). I am not one to wear a lot of jewelry, and she enjoys buying that stuff, so it all worked out quite well. Maid of honor is choosing and buying her own jewelry too. This way the look will tie in together. My gift to her will hopefully be more personal and durable than jewels to match her outfit. I'm wearing diamond earlings my fiancee gave me for Christmas (they are very pretty... gold with dangline pear-shaped diamonds). I may get a new necklace, or may wear an antique "A" charm that was my grandmother's on my father's side (she passed away a few years ago). It depends on how it looks with the dress (haven't found dress yet). My mom has more jewerly than she knows what to do with (most of it is costume, but it is all very nice), and I may borrow something from her.... I know she would love for me to wear her wedding pearls, (it is also my birthstone), but I am not so fond of pearl necklaces. Just a few random thoughts... I'm not fond of rhinestones. They always reminds me of prom and the 80's, particularly when used in excess. I tend to go for more simple, less-flashy jewelery. I wore a pearl necklace and studs on my wedding day. It was a choice between that and a diamond and sapphire pendant and earrings. Since wedding gown styles seem to be leaning towards simple and elegant, I think it's easier for a bride to "get away" with wearing more elaborate jewelery. My attendants asked me what type of jewelery they should wear, and I suggested pearls, but didn't push it. (Although I know some brides do insist their attendants wear specific matching sets.) I actually ended up buying them earrings because 2 out of 3 didn't have any to wear, but also told them they didn't have to wear them if they didn't want to.
