    I plan on wearing a pair of antique Victorian earrings that I inherrited from my great-aunt.  They’re antique diamond clusters in sort of a floral pattern.  Super sparkly, with old mine cuts in yellow gold.  So no money for earrings, at least.  

    I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a really nice necklace but that will depend on what dress I wind up choosing.  I like the idea of a really nice necklsce that becomes my signature piece for dressy/formal occasions!  (We go to a couple of black tie events every year.)  But I wouldn’t want to spend too mcuh on any jewelry that I wouldn’t get some good wear out of.

    Yep, my Fh has bought me a pearl necklace and earring set from Mikimoto which were just over $1000, he currently has them hidden from me in his safety deposit box I can’t have them until wedding day. He wanted to gift me something he knew I’d wear all the time. My gift to him on our wedding day is his cuff links and I’m going to get one of his friends to help me pick something else out as well. We wanted to each have a piece of what we wore we gifted to each other the morning of.

    bibilicious :  I mixed current pieces with heirloom pieces because they had a lot of meaning to me–my great-great grandmother’s pearl bracelet and the sapphire bracelet DH got me for our first Christmas together 🙂

    I found a beautiful vintage necklace/earring set on Etsy for a freakin’ steal…$27! Sterling/opal glass/garnet.

    I didn’t buy any jewellery for my wedding beyond engagement ring and wedding bands.

    I wore a pair of Swarovski earrings that I already owned (a gift from DH many years ago but still stunning – and I rarely have an opportunity to wear them), a pair of diamond studs that I had bought previously, and a white gold diamond RHR that DH had gifted me for my 18th birthday (and that I wear every single day along with my wedding set). I didn’t wear a necklace or a bracelet, but I wear very minimal jewellery on a day to day basis anyway so I didn’t want to change up my look too much (I still wanted to look and feel like me).

    The jewelry pieces that I wore were all gifts that I already owned.

    I am wearing my late grandmother’s jewelery on the day of, and that’s it. We’re tight on money because we splurged on the honeymoon, my fiancé was kind enough to treat me to having my hair and makeup done for the big day, and he surprised me with the wedding band and stacking ring I had been lusting over, so I feel like touching our bank account as little as possible right now, lol.

    I bought my flower crown but no jewellery.

    I wore a necklace I had already been given for my birthday, an heirloom ring I already had from my grandmother, and lace cuff bracelets my sister had made out of our mum’s old wedding dress. I don’t wear earrings.

    Less than $100 for me; other than my wedding & engagement ring, I just wore the pearl drop earrings, necklace, and hairpiece below!

    The only jewlery I purchased was earrings. On my right hand I wore my grandmothers diamond cocktail ring I inherited and didn’t wear a necklace due to the neckline of my dress.
