    I have alway’s liked the Pearl and Crystal mix. Alot of my clients lean towards that.

    I know it would be by personal choice, you do not have to match your BM’S. You can play off the Rhinestone in your sash, you can do a pretty pair of either chandelier or dangle earrings that have pearls and crystals and a bracelet to tie in the look. 

    The BM’s can wear the Freshwater Pearl necklace with simple pearl stud earrings and a one stranded pearl bracelet that has a Pave Crystal enclosure.

    Let me know if you have any questions, I can send you pics. 🙂

    @collieblueeyes:  Can you post a pic of your dress?

    What about pearl and bling mixed together? I like the idea of a double strand with possibly a little bling!

    IMO the double strand or not depends on how busy your dress is.

    But don’t worry I think everyon spends a lot of time on the jewelry.  I bought at least 3 sets and returned them before finding THE ONES.  I spent way too many hours online shopping for jewelry…

    I really love the crystal/pearl look or diamond/pearl. And then you can wear a necklace that matches the set or still just wear a single strand of pearls. Either way is beautiful. I’m looking for earrings like that myself – share if you find any!

    Oh I agree.  I am still goingback and forth with mine.  I am getting my deceased mother’s pearl necklace restrung and I pick it up on Thursday.  I will try on with my dress and see if I love it.  If I do I will just have to buy earrings which are easier for me to get than a necklace.  I have been debating and going back and forth with necklaces like crazy.  Please post a pic of your dress so we can see it.

    @tracy332: Thanks! I had found a set that I wanted to kinda tweak a bit and a friend of mine makes jewelery and she was able to replicate it with the changes I wanted. If you want her info I’d be more then happy to send it to you. She does really great work!

    Because we want to compliment our dress.. and not everything will go with our dress.

    Nothing wrong with wanting the perfect items!
