Wedding fashion isn’t just about finding the perfect dress. Wedding accessories are essential to your bridal ensemble, and beautiful, unique wedding jewelry is the perfect way to take your dress from everyday to extraordinary. Read the articles above to find advice on picking wedding day jewelry, wedding jewelry sets and more.
Whatever you choose for your wedding jewelry, it should be suitable for the occasion, as well as symbolic of the change in your life. Some brides wear family heirlooms to reflect an appreciation for their past, while others may choose more modern pearl and diamond creations. A happy medium between the two can even be achieved with heirloom pieces reset to retain elements of their original designs in a setting that’s updated to match the wedding gown and wedding hair.
Don’t forget, wedding jewelry sets includes your rings too! When it comes to the rings, it’s really just a matter of preference, but consistency should be considered. A wedding jewelry set of rings can be worn side by side or the wedding band can wrap around or encase the engagement ring. Either way, the wedding bands should be chosen to match or complement your engagement ring. It’s also essential to pick your ring according to your job and/or lifestyle. If you have a job where your ring could easily snag or scrape, a ring with pronged settings may not be the best choice.
