Blue Jewelry For Your Wedding?

I wrote a post about Blue Wedding Shoes, (if you’d like to read it, just click on the link), but how about blue jewelry for your wedding?  We all know the old saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”  It seems to be one of the traditions that most brides are still adhering to.  Lots of brides are choosing blue wedding shoes, both my daughters did.  I love this idea!  But how about blue jewelry?  Love, love the ring below.

Want to go with a gemstone that is a little more traditional?  The above photo with all the sapphires makes my heart swoon!  I love rings that I can stack.

If you choose to go necklace free, then these earrings are for you.  I’m not a fan of BOTH necklaces AND earrings, unless are very understated.  You want your guests, to focus on you, not your jewelry.  Remember, your jewelry should compliment you and your style, not dominate it.

More rings above.  I do think I prefer the sapphires mixed with diamonds…

 

Stack 'em up! Love the classic combination of diamond and sapphire bands with an Art Deco engagement ring. Click to see more eternity bands.

If I had it to do over again, I’d choose a wedding band with colored stones.  I love the combination above.  Remember, as with all things in your wedding, there is not right or wrong, unless you hurt feelings.  Your wedding day is all about your choices and your taste.  So have fun with it!  Take a step on the wild side if you want.  No matter what you’re choosing, from food to venue, if you like it, and your fiance does, go for it!  Hopefully, this is a once in a life time event.  Don’t have second thoughts!

Have you given much thought to your earrings? I’m sure you will eventually…but don’t wait till the last minute.  They are more important that you may think… The earrings above demand a formal venue, and a dress that is not over the top.  Otherwise, they will be lost, or your look will be ‘overdone’.  I like the pearl and rhinestone combo.

Next up are earrings that my daughters wore.  Both Kathleen and Maggie wore the above earrings.  I think, like my headpiece, it has become a tradition.  I would be so honored if my younger two daughters would continue.

Maybe you’ll choose a colored stone in your earrings to match your wedding color scheme?  These are lovely and lend an air of sophistication, and are quite striking.  Perhaps you just want to embrace a beach-like feel?  These do the trick!

Don’t forget your bridesmaids.  Some brides care if their attendants jewelry match, some don’t.  But if you do…consider jewelry as your bride’s gift to them.  Then out of obligation they will wear the gift, and MATCH!  🙂  (As you are probably are aware, rose gold is the new platinum — and much cheaper!)

Dangly earrings not for you?  Perhaps you desire a bit of bling, but not too much.  The above earrings are perfect then.  They are respectfully dazzling, but still in the style of a stud.

And this last pair…just because I think they are so beautiful.  I am more of an understated type of gal, but these are exquisite.  (And while obviously not diamonds, these “faux” earrings are not cheap – $400.00  retail!) However, if earrings of this dazzle are worn, I think a bride should give considerable consideration to wearing no necklace.  Remember, less is often more — in decoration as well…

Wedding Jewelry…will you wear pearls or diamonds? The jewelry you wear on your wedding day can be sentimental, heirloom, or a fashion statement. Lots to think about… If you choose a dress that is fairly simple, i.e., little lace, beading, and fluff…you might want to “Kick it Up a Notch.” You can do this with jewelry. I personally favor pearls, but diamond, or cubic zircon, can lend an air of panache. Check out these diamond wedding bands to see what I mean.. The model below incorporates both! I especially love her veil. The rhinestones add a special touch. I like the way it covers just to her brows, but not her eyes. This adds a softness, an air of innocence without completely covering her face – good for photos!

What about using jewelry in your bouquet? The bouquet below is made of silk flowers with jewels interspersed. It’s novel and I’m quite taken with it. I think someone who was truly crafty could make a gorgeous, unique bouquet. I image eBay or tag sales would be a great place to pick up some vintage pieces. I collect clip on earrings, (I don’t have pieced ears), and find GREAT deals on eBay. They’re of surprising good quality too.

I’ve saved the best for last…below are art deco rings. Our KK will wear such a ring on her wedding day. As the first born daughter, of a first born daughter, of a first born daughter… she will wear my grandmother’s platinum diamond engagement ring. It’s much like the style below. It’s fragile, and I wore it infrequently. I was “saving” it. I wish I had worn it more, as soon…it will no longer be mine. But I will give it to KK with joy in my heart on her wedding day, as is our tradition.
