    I generally am not a big fan of pearls. However, I will be wearing them for the wedding because I have heirloom jewelry: a pearl necklace from one grandmother and gold earrings from the other, and I’ll be tying them together with a gold-and-pearl headpiece.

    I’ve heard the “pearls represent tears, therefore bad luck” thing before, but I’m not superstitious. This is probably one of only a few times in my life that I expect to wear pearls, and they are special ones with a link to family.

    So beautiful!

    I think it depends on your heritage. From what I understand ancient Greeks and Romans considered pearls to symbolize purity, and thus be ideal wedding jewelery. Pearls were also considered very appropriate wedding jewelry in the Victorian era, with both Quuen Elizabeths, Queen Anne and Queen Caroline all wore pearls at their weddings.

    So… if you have any heritage/family traditions from the British Isles, I would say wear your pearls!

    I love pearls and when I get married I will be wearing a pearl necklace my SO gave me. I really like your accessories the heand band is really cute. And I had never heard of pearls being bad luck until the bee so I don’t think my family believes that. I say if you love them then wear them.

    They’re pretty! I too will be wearing pearls because they’re my birthstone (I’m a June baby) and I have some beautiful pearl jewelry (my first real pearl stuff) my Fiance has bought me throughout our relationship and I think our wedding is probably the best time to wear them 😉

    My heritage states that pearls are a sign of tears, so I cant bring myself to wear them on my wedding day.  But if your background isnt like mine, then go for it.  Its still a pretty selection.

    Sure, why not? 😀  I’m personally not a fan of the headband look for brides, but it’s pretty!

    @abster323:  I have a double strand pearl necklace with a diamond flower in the middle AND a freshwater pearl and swarovski crystal necklace with matching earrings to choose from. I think they are beautiful and my dress has pearl accents on it so I will match. I’m not superstitious at all and I favor pearls over diamonds to tell you the truth, I think theres something innately classy about them but thats just my opinion! If you bought your stuff because you liked it then thats all that matters!

    I’ve heard of this superstition — but I’ve also heard it turned around as yes, they bring tears — all the tears of joy which you’ll shed on your wedding day, leaving no sad tears for the rest of your marriage!

    I wore a handmade pearl necklace and bracelet. Your accessories are pretty. Go for it.

    I had never heard of pearls being bad luck until I read this.  I love pearls and love the jewerly you picked.  If you like them, wear them.  Your marriage “luck” isn’t going to depend on if you wore pearls the day you got married!

    I’ve never heard that. Pearls are my birthstone. I love them. Most wedding jewelry is either crystal or pearl, so I don’t think many people are paying attention to this superstition.
