I am thinking about my wedding day jewelry and could use some help! I am looking for a necklace to wear with my wedding dress. Originally I just wanted to wear a single strand of pearls, which I already own.
Below is a picture of me in the sample dress. This one is white; mine is ivory.
I wish I hadn’t blinked!
Should I go with the pearls I already own or keep looking? Here are some of my other ideas.
I found this set at JCP. It would go with my blue theme:
It is a a blue topaz and slightly lighter than it looks in these pictures. My bridesmaids will be wearing davids bridal dresses in horizon blue:
And I am hoping flowers will be blue, green and white hydrangea with hypericum berries:
What direction should I go in for my necklace? Single strand pearls, blue topaz (above), or something different perhaps like these:
(available on Etsy)
(This one was on etsy too, but I can’t remember where I found it)
Let me know what you think or post other pictures or links for considerations!

I like the blue topaz and how it picks up the blue of your girls. I also wouldn’t want anything to bulky or chunky taking away from the pretty dress!

I completely agree with the PP. The blue topaz will look very classy and stay elegant and won’t be a trend you might question years down the road. It’s a timeless beauty!

Personally, I think pearls would compliment your gown best! I think that the blue gemstone would go great with your bridesmaids gowns.
What about this one:

First things first, we have the same colors and the same inspiration photos from theknot! 🙂 I am also going blue and green and will be so excited to follow you as you make more of your wedding plans. I agree that the pearls will go best with your gown, and like the one suggested, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the other clustered pearls with/without flowers! The topaz/swarovski necklace sets are beautiful and really would look great on your bridesmaids!
This being said, I’ve chosen crystal necklace for myself, and chunky pearl necklaces for my bridesmaids. So I’m biased that either way could go! 🙂

Thanks ladies for sharing your ideas! Now that I look at some of these pictures side by side, I don’t think I want the rosettes because it may be a trend I look back on later and regret a little.
I do however really like the clustered strand of pearls in the first Etsy picture and still unsure about the blue Topaz. It’s much lighter than my girls dresses and I have already picked out the girls necklaces. Not sure if we will keep them on the ivory ribbon or change out the ribbon for black or blue. Thoughts? The girls are wearing the horizon DB dress above with black shoes of their choice.

I think the pearls you have would look great with your ivory dress! plus, you wouldn’t have to buy another necklace. However if you are looking to buy another I love the blue set 🙂

What about something with pearls that would pick up the vine-like lace motif from your dress?

@marjojo: That could be pretty too. I hadn’t really come across anything like that. Where did you find it?

@Future Mrs Morison:I found them at two (inexpensive) jewelry stores in Wichita, KS- Accessory City and Dustie’s Jewelry. I tried to look for them online because originally I could only find two, but I found more at the 2nd store.
They came with matching earrings and I bought bracelets that have the matching crystal beads.
They were a steal- $17 per girl for necklace, bracelet and earrings.

I heart the pearl & crystal necklace you’ve posted with the ribbon! Beautiful!

@melisslp: Thank you! If that is what my BMs are wearing, what should I wear? I probably don’t want something that hangs quite that low for myself.

I love the rosettes and pearls but it will probably be to busy for your dress. I like the clusters a lot too.

Your dress is so pretty and has so much detail in it that I’d keep the jewelry a little more under-stated. I also personally really like the drop necklace look with a sweetheart neckline.
I love this look!
(I also make jewelry and could easily replicate this … not trying to plug anything but just throwing it out there 🙂 )
