Wedding season is in full swing! June is the most popular month for weddings, with 17 percent of couples tying the knot in this month. And, not surprisingly, June kicks off the top season for weddings: from now until September is prime wedding season. Since the average wedding has 139 guests, according the wedding website The Knot, there’s a good chance that you’ll be a wedding guest at least once this summer. While you won’t need to spend nearly as much time contemplating your look as you would as a member of the bridal party, you’ve probably already put at least a little though into what you’re going to wear. As you do, don’t forget to consider your jewelry! Pieces of heart jewelry are excellent picks for anyone sharing in a couple’s big day.
When choosing jewelry as a wedding guest, one primary rules applies: Don’t try to upstage the bride. Other than that, your options are open! The right pendant, ring or pair of earring can take any ensemble from simply nice to stunning, and a piece of heart jewelry is a lovely way to not only accent your outfit, but also to celebrate the couple of honor.
Opal jewelry can coordinate with nearly any color, making it a versatile pick that can be worn to every wedding that’s on your summer calendar. The unique iridescent appearance of opal seems to shimmer with a rainbow of hues, making it an intriguing and flattering pick. Opal jewelry that incorporates hearts is perfect for wedding guests, as demonstrated by the Genuine Opal Heart Ring in 14K White Gold. This classy pick features a 6mm-high, oval-shaped opal that’s surrounded by a sweeping heart of 14K white gold. Two small round accent diamonds glitter on either side of this heart, adding extra sparkle as well as a glamorous touch.
If you’d prefer to wear a heart around your neck, Apples of gold has plenty of heart pendants to choose from! The 14K Gold Filigree Heart Pendant is a graceful, gleaming accent that captures a sense of romance. Elegant, scrolling openwork forms both sides of this airy, golden heart as it hangs from a simple, gleaming bale. At 7/8″ wide and 1 1/8″ high (including the bale), it’s large enough to be noticed without losing its delicate feminine charm.
Pearls are timelessly classy picks and a strand around your neck or wrist is always appropriate for wedding guest. If you’d prefer a pearl pendant, consider the Heart-Shape White Freshwater Pearl and Diamond Pendant. This contemporary take on two classic gems combines the chic luster of a 10mm freshwater pearl with the colorless glitter of 28 tiny round diamonds. These diamonds stud a heart crafted of luxurious 18K white gold that hangs above the elegantly dangling pearl.
Each of these pieces is also an excellent pick for a bridal shower, engagement party or any occasion for which you’d like a look with a romantic touch. Heart rings and pendants are celebrations of love and beautiful ways to celebrate any couple’s special day.
