In some cultures, wedding jewelry is part of the dowry the bride receives from her family. In Eastern cultures, the bride may receive necklaces, bangles, earrings, toe rings and nose rings from their family.
Wedding jewelry can be expensive or budget-conscious, based on your individual finances and desires. Some brides prefer to wear costume wedding jewelry so they don’t have to worry about losing it on their big day while others are willing to spend thousands of dollars on personalized, engraved wedding jewelry. Either way, many guests have been duped by a necklace or tiara with rhinestones instead of diamonds since often the bride is seen from a slight distance.
Because the bride traditionally wears a white, ivory or cream-colored wedding dress, pearls frequently appear in wedding jewelry. Simulated pearls, freshwater pearls and cultured pearls are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and shades to match your wedding gown. Mix pearls with diamonds or rhinestones for a glamorous look on your wedding day. A pearl strand necklace is always a classic touch. Dangling pearl earrings add drama while posts are more conservative. Add red or blue stones for a bold dash of color or that touch of blue you need for your wedding day.
Wedding jewelry is a unique, personalized way to express yourselves on your once-in-a-lifetime day. If you want to bring on the bling, you’re the stars of the day and it’s the best time to do it!
