My finace and I went to purchase his wedding band today and of course I couldnt help but look at the beautiful pearl necklaces and such in the display cases. He told me that if I wanted them that they could be my wedding present. The only problem is that Mikimoto does not make a pearl bracelet to match the necklace and earrings that I want. I would love to wear the diamond tennis bracelet that my fiance got me for Christmas but I am worried the diamonds and pearls will clash?
Here are the Mikimoto Necklace and Earrings
My Tennis Bracelet
And last but not least my ring set
My hair will be down so it wont matter that the metal clasp on the necklace is yellow gold and my bracelet and rings are white gold but I would love to hear some thoughts on how the pearls and diamonds would look together? Thanks Bees!

I cant help but laugh because almost the EXACT same thing happened to me! We were shopping for a wedding band for FI when I fell in love with a pearl bracelet! I tried it on and FI said if I wanted it, then to get it…I returned the next day and bought the bracelet and his band.
I think you could get away with the necklace and wearing that bracelet, because your hand will be so far away from your neck. Maybe visit the store again while wearing the tennis bracelet and try on the necklace and see how it looks and feels.
I’m personally having a combination of pearls and shiny things in both my necklace and bracelet.

I don’t see anything wrong with the bracelet with the earrings and necklace. I actually had a very similar set of accessories for my wedding. A strand of pearls and diamond and pearl earring set from Mikimoto as well. I paired it with a simple platinum bracelet that had some detail work. I actually didn’t want to be completely matchy match and had to be talked into having pearl earrings. I thought it all looked perfect.

Everyone has differing opinions, but pearls are both fragile AND look best with constant wear because of the oils from your skin. Personally, I won’t purchase an expensive pearl bracelet because of wear and tear.
I’m wearing my mother’s mikimoto pearls, but an inexpensive pearl bracelet. I think you’re making the smart choice with a real pearl necklace & earrings, and a different bracelet!

Pearls and diamonds go great together… that’s why they are worn together at weddings and why crystals and pearls decorate veils and dresses! And sarahcool is right… a pearl bracelet will scratch and get damaged easily.
My pearls come from South East Asia… they’re SUPER cheap there! If you can ever find a cheap holiday to a promising location, you should buy them there in bulk and have them set how you want. That way, if you ever want a bracelet in future, you can match the pearls to your set and save a fortune (plus if you ruin it through wear and tear then it’s no big deal).
But for your wedding, yeah, sounds fine to mix and match!
