Wedding Jewelry

It’s Wedding Season – Pop-Culture Jewelry Hits from Celebrities

Wedding season is just around the corner and that means that all of the brides to be are going to be out and about shopping for their wedding jewelry. Statement jewelry is just as important as your wedding dress for spring/summer wedding style. Jewelry and color are playing major roles in the wedding trends for this summer.

With all of the celebrity engagements and weddings that take place throughout the spring and summer, women from all around will be looking to today’s pop-culture jewelry for ideas and inspiration.

For instance, take Sarah Jessica Parker’s pearl earrings in the Sex in the City movie

The pearl earrings for weddings is not only a classic bridal jewelry option, but an elegant one as well. If you really want your bridal jewelry to provide that hint of nostalgia for your weddings guests, then these pearl earrings will do it. Heck, even First Lady Obama wore them in the ‘80s when she and Barack Obama married.

A pearl string is one of the must-haves in every girl's wardrobe. And this season pearls have become really popular. Pearls with diamonds go very well with especially wedding gowns. They're classy, stylish and speak of luxury.

Layers of pearls go well with both the classic romantic and the avant-garde bride. Bridal gowns with backless and plunging necklines are best jeweled with long layers of pearls in uniform or graduated sizes.

Ashley Judd wore pearls on Salma Hayek's April 2009 wedding in Venice -

....... add some colour to your wedding
You can turn a classic look into something a little more modern simply by adding a splash of color. Lavish accessories with exotic gems, beading, pearls and a splash of color are very hot this wedding season. Elaborate necklaces with colored gems, beads, or crystals are very trendy. Another trend is flowers and rosettes incorporated into jewelry - necklace designs, statement rings and headpieces as they celebrate the freshness of spring and summer. The brilliant colors accentuate the dresses and flowers, yet stand out on their own as well.

Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands

Talking of weddings, we can't ignore the most important - engagement rings and wedding bands. Ultimately, out of everything your wedding band and/or engagement ring is something you would wear for the lifetime. And every girl desires some extravagancy when it comes to their rings.

As far as the ring goes, the bigger and more sparkly the better!! However, these days many girls are opting for coloured stones with diamonds for their rings or wedding bands. I would, though, still prefer the traditional diamond ring (certainly with a modern touch, but something that is classy).
.
Your engagement ring symbolise your love and choosing the perfect one can be really exciting. You can either buy a pre-set wedding band/ring or customise your own wedding band as per your choice and preference to bring in new meaning to your love. There are jewelry specialists like Abazias who can help you create your custom made engagement rings or wedding bands, using best quality certified diamonds in the size, shape and clarity you require. In addition to custom-made rings, they also have an excellent selection of pre-set engagement rings for those looking to purchase a finished ring.
.
For very extravagant rings and/or eternity bands, you can check out Lussori Online Store. They have a range of luxury jewelry designers from Chopard to de Grisogono to H. Stern with their unique designs.
Tip: You want designer style, genuine diamonds but don't want to pay just for the brand? Then you can choose the design from a luxury brand and then get it custom made to suit your budget.

I am listing here some of the delectable watches that you can get for your wedding, and would certainly be one buy that you would cherish (luxury, but for different budget needs) -

Extra Details - the unique wedding jewelry ideazz...

Want something a little more current, but still fashionable with a little pop culture tied in? Take Katherine Heigl’s unique reception table idea. Heigl’s jewelry choices not only adorned her, but her reception tables as well. Each table had an ornate snowflake brooch propped within the wedding flowers on the tables. The brooch went exceptionally well with the couple’s Christmas themed wedding. What an easy way to add elegance to your table as well as create a little pop culture nostalgia at the same time.

Large, chunky earrings are currently the order of the day in jewelry trends, and you can find your perfect piece to go with your wedding dress. But make sure you balance your jewelry, to avoid being over-the-top. Large earrings calls for no or very subtle neckpiece.

Recently Lisa Loeb, the singer, married Roey Hershkovitz. She wore a pink wedding gown which she accessoried with an antique brooch at her waistline. Brooches are a simple way to pep-up your simple wedding gown or your ensmble. You can even wear it in your hair, like Aishwarya Rai did at the red carpet at Cannes.

.
As you can see, this year’s celebrity bridal jewelry is coming from all over the place. Whether it is the movies or the actual celebrations themselves, brides just need to do a little searching for pop-culture jewelry inspiration. You can start before the wedding with your engagement ring or come up with neat little ideas like using a brooch as a centerpiece. This wedding season, anything goes as long as it’s creative, fun and unique!
