Pearls – to Wear or Not to Wear on Your Wedding Day?

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Choosing the right bridal jewelry can sometimes be about more than just the looks – it can be about the deeper meaning every single piece bears with it, it can be about sending out a message, and it can also be about wedding jewelry superstitions.

As probably one of the most frequently encountered type of bridal gemstone, pearls are also among the most debated ones.

Why are pearls highly regarded – and why are they sometimes considered not a good idea for brides?

We have some tips to help you decide – so read on and find out more.

  • Pearls are very highly appreciated by ladies everywhere because they are very elegant and gentle. There’s a sort of mysterious vibe to a pearl that makes it irresistible for women who love timeless elegance. Regardless of whether they are incorporated in a pair of very simple, dainty earrings or a necklace that’s meant to make a real statement, pearls are always a stunning element to incorporate in jewelry.
  • Despite their elegance, pearls tend to be debated when it comes to bridal jewelry. Some think that wearing pearls on your wedding day brings bad luck, but the actual superstition talks about wearing pearls on your engagement ring (because pearls are supposed to signify the tears of the bride). Thus, wearing a pair of pearl earrings or a pearl necklace is actually not connected to any superstition.
  • At the end of the day, you decide if you want to hear out this superstition. Pearls can be an amazing accessory for any bride, particularly because their color and their grace are more than suitable for this occasion. A simple dress with a minimalist elegance to it can be gorgeously adorned by pearls, and many times, pearls are actually used within the design of the wedding dress itself as well. If you are superstitious, you might want to opt for something else as your main gemstone for the Big Day (Swarovski crystals, for instance). If you are not superstitious, though, you simply cannot go wrong with pearls.

Popular Jewelry Styles and the Brides Who Wear Them

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Styles of jewelry that are popular really vary according to many factors – the bride’s personality, sense of style, formalness of the wedding itself, dress style, and wedding vision. Generally, however, we’ve noticed that a bride falls into one of three categories – the traditional bride looking for classic elegance, the more confident bride going for a red carpet look, and the bride with great fashion sense for whom the accessories take on greater importance.

This year, we’re seeing the more traditional bride opt for gowns with embellished, embroidered belts or a more detailed, embroidered and embellished bodice. Because of these beautiful details, we recommend, during our personal style consultations, that brides not choose overpowering jewelry with their gowns. We frequently recommend classic diamond studs or diamond drop earrings – our Middleton earrings are a perfect example. (The diamond drop Middleton earrings, which we rent for $160, retail for $8,250.) Our Danielson earrings (diamond studs) may seem a safe choice, but the diamonds do offer a sparkle quality that no other stone can, and that sparkle can’t be had with costume jewelry. It’s that sparkle that allows for diamond studs to be seen from afar.  Adorn’s Danielson Earrings rent for $150 and retail at over $5,900.

Brides that are more confident are going for that red carpet look and wanting to make a bigger impact with their jewelry, opting for a little more bling. A favorite pairing among brides in this group are our Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet. Our Lockwood earrings are big – and gorgeous – chandelier earrings that rent for $200 ($13,700 retail) and shout “glamour”. The Chadwick bracelet is a diamond cuff bracelet that is a great complement to the Lockwood earrings and are similar in style and sophistication (retail $24,750, rents for $250). Strapless dresses that define simple elegance are a combination when paired with the Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet. These brides are also exploring the use of colored gems.

From our most fashion sensitive brides, we’re seeing a lot of creativity. These brides don’t shop for jewelry, or other accessories such as veils, as a last minute to-do, they have a specific vision for their fashion statement on their wedding day and use each element, such as their jewelry selection, to complete the look. We’ve seen brides that fall in this category, reserving their jewelry selection prior to finding that perfect gown. A great example is one of our clients, Niurka, owner of Luli Meets Tulle, who really made a statement with her selection. (Niurka photo credit to Morgan Trinker Photography.) Niurka chose our Lockwood earrings and Chadwick bracelet, but paired them with a retro bird cage veil for a throwback  look reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour.

  • Green Brides Rent Diamonds

    Monday, March 1st, 2010

    The Green movement is everywhere, at the supermarket in new cleaning products, on the runway in organic and bamboo fashions, and even on our favorite television shows. According to Recycled Bride, the hottest green trend for 2010 is adding sustainable products and green friendly customs into your wedding day.

    Here are a few tips:

    Buy Pre-Owned Wedding and Bridesmaids Dresses: Obtaining a pre-owned wedding dress is easier than it sounds. A lot of great websites deal in the ‘recycling’ of wedding dresses and WHY NOT? You always get a great deal, the dresses are beautiful, and you’re helping a fellow bride out. Who knows, maybe she bought the dress in a rush and then found her dream gown 3 months later (which totally happened to one of my good friends). If you’re looking for a good website to start looking, we love the gals at Encore Bridal. Check them out!

    green-wedding-tipsPre-owned Wedding Decorations: I like this option because it’s not necessarily one that everyone thinks about. Its not like you’re reusing flowers and napkins, it’s the cake server you use only once, the large/colored candy dishes you need for the centerpieces, the Victorian themed wedding gift card box you wanted so much. You can look for these pre-owned items anywhere, but I recommend checking out Etsy.com, RecycledBride.com, or even asking anyone of your friends who’s gotten married lately if they have anything you could use. 24 hrs before my wedding I realized I didn’t have 1)a unity candle (it’s a Catholic thing), 2)a cake server, and 3)a case to hold the bubbles everyone used when my husband and I left the church. Thank goodness one of my bridesmaids tied the knot a month before and was able to dig up all of the above.

    earringsRent Your Bridal Jewelry: This ones my favorite! Not only is it economical to rent Adorns gorgeous dazzling diamonds – it’s great for mother earth too. Renting genuine diamonds helps to reduce your carbon footprint. Don’t believe me? Just check the Green Bride Guide for their tips on creating a sustainable wedding by renting your dress and jewelry. There’s nothing I love more than being green and looking

Its run by Emily Anderson – the author of the 2007 bestseller Eco Chic Wedding  – and has some of the best advice on how to create a wedding that’s sophisticated, stylish, and sustainable.

    Beautiful Wedding Gowns for Less!

    Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

    Ok, how awesome is this idea: PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com gives the world of weddings a way to connect buyers and sellers of new, sample and used designer wedding dresses. They’ve got over 3400 wedding dresses available to peruse in just about ANY price range (seriously – the dresses go from $100 to $10,000. Amazing).

    Wanna sell your wedding dress? This place is your dream. Its way better than putting it up on Craigslist or Ebay or some other anonymous website because your listing doesn’t expire for 12 full months AND they filter the spam requests for you. I know a few of you are shaking your heads right now “Why would I want to sell my wedding dress?” Honey, I’ve had several friends buy 2, 3, even 4 wedding dresses before they walk down the aisle. Why? They made the mistake of CONTINUING to check out dresses after they bought one. Take a piece of advice from Adorn – once you have your wedding gown stop looking at dresses! It only leads to bigger bills.

    Here are some glorious dresses (with some of our glorious gems to match) – bask in their lusciousness!

    This simple yet elegant Melissa Sweet gown pairs beautifully with the Stevenson earrings and necklace. Class Act!

    Melissa-Sweet-PreOwnedStevesonEarringsStevensonNecklace

     

    Not only is this Monique Lhuillier $1200 cheaper than retail value – its BRAND NEW! It looks amazing with the Budding earring and necklace set Monique-Lhuillier-Empire-PreOwnedBuddingNecklaceBuddingEarrings
