@ky-pie:  Wear Mom’s for the wedding and Step Sis’s for the reception. Really though, I’d cross this bridge when/if you get to it…….

@ky-pie:  I would plan to wear the set your Mom gave you on your wedding day.

If the step sister does gift you with more jewelry, I would plan to wear it to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. 

I would thank her profusely at the shower, then speak with her privately some time soon after the shower to explain that your Mom had surprised you with the blue topaz set. Tell her that you feel you must wear the set your Mom gave you and that you know she will understand.

I would ask your mother, relatives, and friends to broadcast that you received this set and are planning to wear it to the wedding. Hopefully it won’t cause hurt feelings, a gift from your mom trumps other gifts. I normally hate facebook sharing but you might post pictures of the set.
