Brides go through great lengths to find that perfect wedding dress. It only makes sense that they would spend just as much time searching for jewelry to compliment their dress.

Right now, brides are searching for pieces that compliment their personality. They want to be unique and have jewelry that is unlike anything that their friends have ever seen.

For engagement rings, the younger brides are choosing princess and cushion cut diamonds most often. This differs from what the older generations chose. However, the new brides are searching for a modern style with a classic twist.

There has been a renaissance in brides choosing colorful jewelry. They are not scared to choose colorful pieces. Pink and blue diamonds are becoming ever popular as well as blue sapphires.

The metal settings are also an important part of the jewelry pieces. Platinum and palladium are the most common metal pieces. Platinum is a classic and highlights engravings.

Finally, we are currently seeing designers being inspired by nature, like this beautiful ring.

Pay attention to these trends at the next wedding you attend!

Every girl grows up reading fairy-tales like Cinderella and Rapunzel. These stories provide the inspiration for women’s want of a royal wedding. Unfortunately, there are not to many royals in the world, so the chance for a royal wedding is slim. However, just because you are not royal does not mean you can’t be accessorized like a princess.

Compliment your beautiful wedding dress with vintage inspired jewelry to make your wedding as close to that fairy-tale wedding as possible. Vintage jewelry was more elaborate than the jewelry of today, so it is sure to wow your wedding guests!

Think long chandelier earrings and a choker with an elaborate pendant in the middle.

If you are not wearing a veil, opt for a jewel encrusted hair clip for an extra pop. Remember, everyone will see your arms as you walk down the aisle, so a bracelet is necessary. A bejeweled bangle will add that extra something to make you look like a princess.

It is important to make sure your jewelry is not clashing with your wedding dress!

Keep these thoughts in mind:
-if you are wearing white, gold may clash… we suggest going with pearl or platinum
-if you are wearing diamond-white, gold and silver would work well
-if you are wearing ivory, stick to gold to bring out the creamy tint of the fabric

Don’t forget about your neckline! A great necklace is just as important as the ring! It can add character to your gown or highlight a unique feature.

The best advice we can give: when in doubt, stick to the basics. You can’t beat a pair of diamond drop earrings with a strand of pearls or a diamond chocker.

While the engagement ring is an extremely important part of getting married, let’s not forget about the wedding band! This is equally important as both the bride and groom get one!

Give yourself time to pick out the right band– you can always bring the band back to get it engraved since it can take up to a month to get it done!

Have a budget, but make sure you get something that you will enjoy! Remember, you will be wearing this everyday!

Make sure your rings respects your lifestyle! Those who enjoy sports or music should opt for a comfort fitting ring.. slimmer ring with rounded edges, rather than a wide, bulky band. Those who work with their hands will want a simple, solid metal ring, as stones can come loose and carvings will trap dirt.

Think about all of these things so that you can have the perfect wedding band!
