There can be various jewelry options to choose from and various ideas to make the day special. By going a little way ahead of engagement ring and wedding band and adopting some innovative ideas the wedding day will become memorable. Here are some ideas - from traditional to trendy - that might give you some wedding day jewelry inspiration.
Start a family heirloom: Start your own family tradition by selecting jewelry you can pass down to future generations as an heirloom. Choose jewelry that will withstand the tests of time in terms of durability and style. Gold and platinum are the choices that traditionally hold up over the years. Likewise cultured pearls, diamond stud earrings, tennis bracelets, and charm bracelets also have a timeless quality. If there is any confusion, study pictures of your grandmother's wedding day. The piece of jewelry you could see yourself wearing, in that picture is the one that will make a good, classic choice.
Accessorize the wedding gown with veils, tiaras, and hair jewelry: Whether or not you wear a veil, a tiara can add just the right amount of glamour to your wedding day regalia. If you choose a bold tiara, the rest of your wedding jewelry should be less dramatic to create a more balanced look. Bejeweled hair clips and hair pins are an alternative and more individual way to dress up your outfit.
Add some style using brooches: Brooches are perfect for modern brides and also for brides seeking a vintage look. You can pin them to your gown's neckline, use them to hold a shrug or shawl in place, add a touch of sparkle to the comb holding your veil in place, or dress up the top of your shoes. This added bit of glitz will go a long way in raising your spirits.
Use earrings: If youíre going for an understated look, pearl stud earrings and diamond stud earrings are always an excellent choice. However, if you're a modern bride who wishes to keep pace with the latest in fashion, select drop earrings or bold chandelier earrings, which are all the rage on the runways. Even if you donít have pierced ears, you can add glamour with beautiful clip on earrings which are available in abundance.
Make a careful choice of a necklace: A pearl choker or a single diamond pendant is always in. To add some novelty, consider wearing several beaded necklaces of varying lengths to add a vintage feel to your gown. As for bracelet options, if youíre not wearing gloves, think about a simple tennis bracelet, or better still wear a thick silver cuff or gold cuff.
Use lively colorful jewelry: Your wedding jewelry accessories are a great way to add a splash of color to your wedding day palette. Try wearing emeralds, rubies, or sapphires for your earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. Just remember, too much of color is not desirable, even a little splash is enough to lighten the moods.
Pick a pearl: Pearls, a wedding day classic, can come in just about every shape, size, and color to suit your taste and your style. They are an all time favorite all over the world.
