a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

The Great Jewelry Hunt Begins June 3, 2008

So now that I have the dress and the shoes nailed down (a year in advance, yes!) I can begin to accessorize…I usually don’t go overboard in this area so I’m really only looking for two pieces. I do want some sort of veil/headpiece, but something non-traditional like an antique net veil or a feathered pin etc. The other item I’ve begun casually shopping for is jewelry. Usually I wear only very basic jewelry, and come to think of it, jewelry that has been given to me as a gift. Especially since my dress is fairly simple I don’t want to go overboard but I do want to have something that speaks to the importance of the day. I’m thinking a fabulous pair of earrings…here are some of my preliminary finds!

I love how these would compliment the yellow in my engagement ring, and I love Asscher cut anything. I think I may want something that dangles a bit more though, just for a little drama…

Normally, these would be just a tad out of my price range, but I have been playing with the idea of borrowing bling from Bag Borrow or Steal. I think the concept of renting designer jewelry for a fraction of the price is completely awesome, but I also may want something I can keep.

I adore Joy O’s designs, especially the earrings that Anne Hathaway wore to New York Fashion Week. I think these infinity earrings are gorgeously simple, and the tiny champagne diamonds are a luxury touch at a budget $158.

And while I’m on a modern jewelry kick, I have to mention By the Stones, because I love their work as well. These Rain earrings are on my Want list, even though they probably are a bit too casual for what I’m envisioning for my wedding day. Maybe the rehearsal dinner? I just want an excuse to buy them!

    Love those yellow stones! Hunting for jewelry was my favorite part. I could look for jewelry forever. And I did. I ended up getting mine made. Good luck. I can’t wait to see what you find.

    As for veils, I got mine here for cheap: and don’t forget twigs & honey:

    I have a list of some of the jewelery sellers that I saved as favorites when looking for my jewelery. Check out my blog if you’re interested.
