Alright bees, so I have recently been on a hunt for jewelry as a gift for my BMs. I am in love with these earrings and already bought them (so please don’t tell me you hate them haha… or do, but I am 100% sure on these).
I was looking on Etsy for jewelry and found this:
The shop owner can customize it with an antique silver chain to match the earrings. She also made another one with a bigger flower, shown here:
Which do you like better – flower # 1 or flower #2? I think both have their pros… the first one is little and cute and I love how you can see the backing. The second one is more of a statement and I like the design of the flower better.
Here are the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses so you can visualize the whole look together. They will be in plum.
Or am I going in the wrong direction? Too many flowers? Do the earrings match? I thought it would be a cute way to offset the flowers on the dress by putting the flower of the necklace on the other side. Thoughts? Suggestions? If you don’t like these, I’d love to hear your ideas for necklaces that would match the earrings and dress. Thanks 🙂

I love the earrings but I think that the necklace would be a bit of an overkill. Your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are beautiful and with that awesome neckline, I think the necklace would take away from it’s beauty. What about just a classic string of faux pearls? Or no necklace at all? Those earrings are so pretty you may not need anything else. If you really want another piece of jewelry …maybe a great bracelet.

I think the earrings are really pretty! But, I don’t think the earrings go with either necklaces. I think a pretty sparkly bracelet would look great!

I love, love the necklaces, and I just got my flower girl’s jewelry from Etsy and it’s very similar to what you’ve picked. I do, however, think the necklaces would be a bit too much considering you have pretty dangly earrings and flower detail near the neckline on the dress already.
I would ask the seller if she can make you bracelets instead of necklaces using the same ivory rose. They would go nicely with the look and wouldn’t be “too much”, IMO. If your seller can’t, try Miss Daisychains on Etsy. I would post a pic of mine, but weddingbee won’t let me lately!

i don’t think the earrings and necklace will look good together. i like them both but just not as a set.

Thanks ladies for your input! I almost wonder if the large size of the earrings in the image is making them look bigger than they are. But regardless, I can see where you are coming from. I am going to look around and post some more options (simpler necklaces and/or bracelets).
Where has everyone gotten their Bridesmaid or Best Man jewelry from? I am looking at Etsy and 1928.com. It’s hard to find things with pearls that don’t break the bank.. also should mention I’m looking to stay around $30 or below per girl. If anyone has pics of their girls in any type of pearl jewelry, please share!

What do you think of any of these? Well not the earrings.. it seems like most can be made in necklace or bracelet form, so let me know if you like a specific one and prefer bracelet or necklace. Thanks!

I think each piece is lovely but I think if you put them all together then it’s just way too much.
I think the necklace would take away from the dress’s embelishment. It also seems like the earrings are a bit of a statement on their own which would also compete with the necklace. Personally, I would go with the earrings and skip a necklace. Perhaps a pretty bracelet instead.

I don’t think a necklace is really needed….those earrings you got are AMAZING!!!!!!!!

I have to agree with the other bees! I do think a nice bracelet would look very pretty with it – the earings are gorgeous!

I’m in LOVE with those earrings! Sadly, I have to agree that the necklaces are all too much. How about a bracelet like necklace #1?

Thanks all! I’m looking into bracelet options of some of the necklaces I posted 🙂
@StormyRose: Oh good, another option – I’ll check this out. Thanks! I really like the necklaces you posted, but the consensus seems to be skip the necklace and go for a bracelet.

I agree, i think the necklaces and earrings are a bit too much – They detract from the GORGEOUS dresses! I’d go with a simple pearl drop like Nicoley1985 mentioned and a simple bracelet 🙂
