Exquisite Day-Of Jewelry in the Charlotte, NC Area
The Perfect Balance
When picking a type of metal, look at your dress in natural lighting. If you're wearing pure white or something with hints of blue, a striking white gold will accentuate the unadulterated purity of the fabric. For gowns in champagne or ivory, yellow gold highlights the golden undertones. Anything with a rosy hue or iridescent sequins looks lovely with rose gold. If you've got a fabric sample of your dress, consider bringing that shopping with you to compare against hues of metal. Always remember that you want the jewelry and the dress to complement each other to attain the right balance of sophistication and elegance!
Jewels for the Girls
You've invited your best friends to help you celebrate your big day, and you'll all be getting ready together. To make the most of this special time with just you and your best girls, give each one a gift of matching jewelry to wear. Earrings are a great token of appreciation and easy to pair with all cuts and colors of bridesmaid dresses. If you'd like something a little more personal to commemorate sharing your big day with your besties, opt for a charm bracelet where you can put the date, your bridesmaid's initials, and a few charms that sum up the day (why not champagne?!). It's a day you'll remember for the rest of your life, but they'll remember it too!
What's the Color Scheme?
Depending on your wedding colors, picking jewelry with accent colors can really tie the whole thing together. Sapphires in various hues are perfect for blue or even yellow-themed celebrations, like those at the beach. Rubies are perfect for fall weddings accented by rich jewel tones. If you don't want to match your wedding colors but would love some nontraditional gemstones that shimmer and shine, consider iridescent opals or moonstone. Jade, emerald, or peridot will match any bouquet of greenery or outdoor wedding. Adding accent colors to your wedding day jewelry is a fabulous way to tie together your color scheme — especially for the times when you aren't holding your bouquet!
Something For Him
While it's true that the bride has the most fun accessories, it's important for the groom to have something nice for the wedding, too! Tie clips, tie bars, and cufflinks are all subtle accessories to dress him up and will make a big impact. Get matching tie clips for all the groomsmen as a special gift, and be sure to take advantage of custom engraving to get the date of your wedding commemorated forever on this keepsake. Custom cufflinks would be a beautiful place to represent your new last name or bring in a pop of your wedding color by inlaying a colorful gemstone.
