wedding is an occasion marked by milestone jewelry, but once the dress
is selected it is time to have some fun picking the accessories! The
Jewelry Brief picks for bridal jewelry 2012 go from the traditional to
the latest trends.
The bridal cuff, love it! Jewelry designer Catherine Marche
created this hand engraved cuff bracelet with the bride in mind. The
lace-style engraving on this is stunning. How incredible would it be to
have the lace pattern from your wedding dress engraved on a cuff to wear
again and again? Very romantic!
in New Jersey report they are seeing brides wearing their engagement
rings on their right hands and buying multiple, stackable bands for
their left hands. Fantastic idea! Stackable bands can be so much fun.
They are a great way to quickly dress up or dress down a look,
incorporate a mixed metal look or even add colors with enamel or colored
stones. Gemvara has an
incredible stackable rings collection where a bride can create her own
or choose from one of the seemingly endless options already on the site.
Diamond slice jewelry is something I first wrote about two years ago.
I loved it then but wondered if it was passing trend or here to stay. I
am happy to report it looks like it is staying. L’Dezen Jewellry
is designing gorgeous diamond slice jewelry for brides. Chandelier
earrings with delicate gold work incorporating diamond slices have a
lacy quality to them. A sophisticated look any woman is sure to wear
again and again.
Last, but certainly not least, pearls. They are a classic, can be
found for any budget and we love them! For a more traditional feel a
single strand of pearls may be best, a choker creates a vintage feel and
multiple strands will add a bohemian touch. A simple pearl stud earring
is always charming, but a 12-14mm pearl stud is a chic statement.
The possibilities are endless! If you design for brides or are a
bride that wants to share ideas and pics, we would love to see them
