Your wedding day is inching closer! As you embark on the exciting journey toward your big day, selecting the perfect pieces of jewelry to complement your look is a truly magical part of the process. It’s all about finding those pieces that resonate with your personal story and the love you share. Let’s start with the star of the wedding jewelry–the wedding band.

The wedding band is a symbol of commitment and eternal love. It’s the one piece you’ll wear every day, for the rest of your life, making it arguably the most important choice you’ll make in your wedding jewelry selection. Here are a few tips to ensure your wedding band is as meaningful as your bond:

  • Coordinating your wedding band with your partner's is a beautiful way to symbolize your unity. Whether it’s a matching design or the same metal, it’s the small details that can make a big impact.
  • Personalizing your band with an engraving makes it uniquely yours. Think beyond your wedding dates; consider inscribing a phrase that holds special meaning, like lyrics from “your” song, or an inside joke.

With your bands chosen, let’s add some sparkle and color to your wedding day ensemble with gemstones that tell their own story.

sapphire: your something blue

The tradition of adding “something blue” to your wedding ensemble is a cherished bridal custom that symbolizes purity, love, and fidelity. Sapphire, with its regal beauty, effortlessly embodies this tradition with its deep blue hues, making it an ideal choice for brides looking to incorporate “something blue” into their wedding attire. Whether set in earrings, a necklace, or even your wedding band, a sapphire gemstone not only complements your look but also carries a story of enduring love.

lab-grown diamonds: sparkle more, spend less

If you’re looking for the brilliance of diamonds without the steep price, lab-grown diamonds are a fantastic choice. These stones are visually, physically, and chemically indistinguishable from natural diamonds. Opting for lab-grown diamonds allows you to embrace the sparkle and significance of diamonds, while also making a choice that’s kind to the planet (and your wallet). Whether it’s a dazzling pair of earrings, or an envy-worthy tennis bracelet, lab-grown diamonds bring the glamour without the guilt.

pearl: timeless elegance

Pearls are the epitome of timeless elegance, adding a touch of classic beauty to any bridal look. You can opt for a dainty pearl necklace as a centerpiece of your bridal look or opt for pearl studs to add a touch of grace to your outfit. Apart from their beauty, pearls symbolize purity and new beginnings, echoing the essence of your wedding day. Plus, they transition seamlessly from wedding to everyday wear. What’s not to love?

colored gemstones

If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your wedding look, colored gemstones like emeralds, rubies, and morganite are perfect. They not only add a unique element to your bridal look but also carry a deeper significance, making your day even more memorable. Emeralds, with their lush green hue, symbolize growth and renewal–perfect for beginning your new life together. Rubies, on the other hand, evoke passion and energy, bringing a fiery splash of color that mimics the intensity of your love. A gemstone we’ve been crushing on lately is morganite. With its soft and subtle pink tones, it represents tenderness and warmth, lending a more understated elegance to your wedding look.

Wearing a piece (or pieces) of jewelry featuring these gemstones not only adds a splash of color to your outfit but also allows you to express your unique style and the multifaceted nature of your love.

Selecting your wedding jewelry is a personal journey that adds meaning to your big day. From the symbolism of your wedding bands to the personal touch of gemstones, each piece says so much. As you select these pieces, keep in mind that the best choices are the ones that resonate most deeply with you and capture the essence of your relationship. Here’s to finding those perfect pieces that you’ll cherish for a lifetime!
