    I don’t think $200 is a lot for your wedding day jewelery. I think those earings and bracelet are beautiful.

    headpiece aside, nothing, because Fiance bought them for me!  Buuut that’s probably not the purpose of this thread LoL 😉  But he got me a ~$200 bracelette (some kind of polished precious stones from our last vacation) and a vintage pearl necklace for an undisclosed amount.  I don’t have pierced ears, so no earrings.  So all in all, $200+

    Personally, if I were spending money, I wouldn’t have splurged so much on the bracelette (in your case, cuff and earrings).  The bulk of my budget would go to a fab necklace!  But to each their own, and if you can afford it, you might as well go for it!

    @ellbell921:  Not to thread jack or anything, but WHERE is the braclet from?!?! I’ve been looking all over for something like that! 

    I don’t think it’s outrageous, I am looking to spend somewhere in that range.

    I bought forever jewelry pieces for my wedding day jewelry so they were well over $200. I think if they are things you will wear again and you won’t break the budget then you should go for it.

    I wore my engagement ring, a bracelet and earrings. My neckline was high and ornate on my dress so no necklace for me. My bracelet was a wedding gift from my husband but I have no idea how much it cost. My earrings were huge and diamonds but they were loaned to me from my mom’s best friend so we didn’t pay for those.

    Not including headpiece, I actually spend nothing on wedding jewelry. I was lucky enough to be able to borrow my mother’s pearls, a double strand necklace and a bracelet. And I already owned a pair of pearl earrings that I wore with it. The sentimental value of the jewelry is what made it special, it was my “something borrowed”.

    I don’t think that price is outrageous. With my Swarovski crystal headband, earrings, and bracelet, I spent about $500.

    All the jewelry I wore was stuff I already owned or borrowed from mom/sister. 

    That said, I know I splurged in other areas.

    I don’t think $212 is too much if you can afford it. You’d be able to wear both things again, I’m sure, to other fancy events.

    If you can afford it, go for it!

    I’m lucky enough to be wearing my mother’s pearl necklace and earrings (which she had custom made for her wedding 31 years ago and would cost MUCH more than $200 nowadays), but if it makes you feel any better, my blinged out veil and belt were EACH $500, so $200 for jewelry that you may actually wear again isn’t so bad, haha

    My earrings I already had, bracelet I made for ~$5, and necklace I bought for $15. Yes, $200 is too much to me.
