Great Jewelry Picks for Your Wedding Ensemble
August 7, 2012 by Afshin Yaghtin
It’s wedding season! According to the Association of Wedding Professionals International, July is the most popular month for weddings in the United States, and chances are, you’ve received at least one wedding invitation in the mail in recent months.
The average wedding has 145 guests, and if you’re one of them this summer, you’ve likely thought about what you’re going to wear. But, have you given any thought to what jewelry could give your ensemble that little something extra for such a special occasion? The right necklace, bracelet, ring or pair of earrings can help your look communicate that’s it’s a time to celebrate.
“Something blue” is just as nice for wedding guests as it is for the bride. The Enchanted Blue Topaz Ring in .925 Sterling Silver is the ideal vintage-style accent for any wedding ensemble. A swirling Victorian design creates a unique foundation for the light, vibrant color of blue topaz. This time-honored style is perfect for a day that celebrates the beginning of a life lived together. Or, choose a similar style with the gemstone of your choice that best matches your outfit. This setting, whether in yellow gold, white gold or silver, adds a timeless quality to any gem.
If you’re planning on styling your hair in a special-occasion twist or braid, a pair of glittering earrings is the perfect accent, and the Blue Topaz and Diamond Swirl Earrings are an ideal choice. Set in 14K white gold, pear-shaped blue topaz stones dangle from rows of diamonds with just enough drama.
While the focus at any wedding should be on the bride, a wedding can also be a time when guests celebrate their own relationships, and a personalized piece is a lovely testament to the love you share with that special someone. The hand-stamped Trio Letter Charm Sterling Silver Bangle, created by artist Kira Ferrer, keeps both of your initials close at hand and shows that you belong together. Three charms dangle from a hand-forged hammered bangle, creating a piece that’s perfect for dancing in each other’s arms. Or, for a stylish symbol of two lives intertwined, don the Celtic Knot Sterling Silver Bangle Bracelet.
A key can serve as a symbol of a heart that’s unlocked by love and it’s a unique way to make a statement the next time you’re a wedding guest. The 14K White Gold Key Pendant is a particularly elegant example, with its graceful curves and a heart-like design.
If you’re attending a more formal or evening wedding, consider taking your look up a notch with pieces that speak of glamour and that demonstrate that the occasion is truly one for celebration. The 1 Carat Blue and White Diamond Heart Pendant is a stunning declaration of the beauty of love, fitting for the fanciest ceremony. A half carat each of white diamonds and blue diamonds surround a white gold heart, creating a look that won’t soon be forgotten.
No matter what style of wedding you’ll be attending, you can never go wrong with a true classic: pearls. Pearls are the epitome of sophistication, and Apples of Gold’s Lavender Freshwater Pearl Necklace with Matching Stud Earrings adds a subtle hint of color that endows them with an extra sense of glamour. A hint of lavender is unexpected but entirely elegant in this perfectly coordinating set. Add a matching bracelet for a look that’s pulled together and polished.
While you’d never want to outshine the bride, adding a little extra dazzle to your wedding look can communicate that you’re sharing the joy. Put on one of our top wedding guest picks and get ready to celebrate!
