Your wedding day is unlike any other day throughout your entire life. But just like every other day, you want to stay true to your specific style. When selecting your bridal jewelry there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First and foremost, you want to take this opportunity to showcase your individual style. It’s your big day- all eyes will be on you, and you can be as glammed up or as pared down as you desire. You will also need to consider the style of your dress and your hairstyle. Below we’ve chosen a few different selections of bridal jewelry for the modern bride, the vintage bride, the budget bride, and the bride again. So, what type of bride are you?
Bridal Jewelry for the Modern Bride
Engagement ring- Rose gold Beverley K morganite & diamond halo ring
Wedding band: Rose gold Hearts On Fire®Diamond Classic eternity band
Right-hand ring: Rose gold Hearts On Fire® diamond Lorelei Criss Cross ring
Necklace: Rose gold Beverley K tanzanite & diamond necklace
Earrings: Rose gold and platinum Hearts On Fire® diamond Liliana flower stud earrings
Bracelet: Rose gold Beverley K pink sapphire bracelet
The modern bride is more streamlined and contemporary than ever before. She is more artistic and had a hand in all the design elements of her wedding. The jewelry that suits her best is simply designer, like these Beverley K and Hearts On Fire® selections. The modern bride prefers to adorn herself in one precious metal, rather than going for a mismatched look. Since rose gold is a very modern and popular choice for bridal jewelry, we’ve chosen a rose gold palette with hints of pink for our blushing modern bride. And the gorgeous tanzanite in her necklace is the perfect addition of “something blue.” Her up-do and one-shoulder dress allow her jewelry to really dazzle.
Bridal Jewelry for the Vintage Bride
Engagement ring: White gold antique diamond engagement ring
Wedding band: White gold vintage Chanel diamond baroque eternity band
Necklace: Rose gold and platinum vintage Michael Beaudry Diamond Forever necklace
Earrings: Platinum vintage diamond & blue sapphire earrings
Bracelet: Yellow gold diamond swirl bangle bracelet
Something borrowed is the theme of this bride’s wedding and bridal jewelry. Lace, antique details and ornate decorations will rule her day. She is a sentimental romantic and wants jewelry that reflects the timeless traditions of marriage. The vintage bride prefers a mismatched metal look to emphasize her unique style, so we’ve chosen a combination of white, rose and yellow gold jewelry. Jewelry from the Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods will complement her flair. These vintage chandelier-style earrings with a pop of sapphires make an exceptional choice for her “something blue.” Since her hair is down and her dress is a halter, we’ve chosen a delicate, long necklace to let her earrings take center stage.
Bridal Jewelry for the Budget Bride
Engagement ring: White gold vintage Neil Lane diamond engagement ring
Wedding band: White gold diamond anniversary band
Right-hand ring: Sterling silver vintage Tiffany & Co. Paloma Picasso Loving Heart ring
Necklace: Sterling silver vintage Tiffany & Co. aquamarine & pearl Color by the Yard necklace
Earrings: Rose gold vintage Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti Diamonds by the Yard stud earrings
Let’s face it…many of us are counting our pennies these days so it can be hard to splurge on bridal jewelry. But the frugal bride can still look stunning on her wedding day. With choices in sterling silver and designers like Tiffany & Co., this thrifty bride will be able to score some extraordinary values that will let her sparkle without blowing the wedding budget. With her long dress and long veil, we’ve chosen to keep her jewelry to a minimum so she doesn’t look too cluttered. The most expensive piece she’ll be wearing is this vintage Neil Lane engagement ring. The bonus? All of these pieces will transfer quite nicely to everyday jewelry.
Bridal Jewelry for the Bride Again
Engagement ring: White gold Venetti diamond halo engagement ring
Wedding band: White gold Venetti diamond anniversary band
Necklace: White gold vintage diamond twist necklace
Earrings: White gold vintage diamond triangle stud earrings
Bracelet: White gold vintage diamond bangle bracelet
Her second wedding is going to be even more fabulous because her confidence lets her pull off a sleeker, sophisticated look. Since the second wedding dress tends to be more effortless in design, the complementing jewelry she adorns should be classic and delicate. Feminine designs featuring diamonds set in white gold will help her accomplish this look. Between her long, flowing hair and lower neckline this vintage diamond twist necklace makes a standout statement. A Venetti engagement ring and wedding band will pair nicely with other vintage accessories, as well. And the money she saves by choosing vintage bridal jewelry will allow for an even better honeymoon!
