That’s awesome! That is pretty amazing about the raw diamonds. Sounds very special. I haven’t seen too many brides wearing sentimental jewelry–everyone I know just buys something!

I got to wear a pair of earrings and a diamomnd necklace my dad got my mom back from when THEY were DATING like 30+ years ago. When my dad saw them on me, he touched the earrings and was like, “wow…i remember when I gave these to her”. I also wore a big blue topaz ring my parents gave me on my 21st birthday. Granted that was only 2 years ago, but 21 is a biggie and it’s a really nice piece =]

Not yet, but I’m sure I will. My mom has several pieces of jewelry that I LOVED growing up, so I want to incorporate them somehow.

I’m wearing a brooch/pin my grandfather gave me on my 20th birthday. It’s one of his dress lapel pins from his WWII army uniform. It’s just rhinestones but it’s gorgeous and so meaningful to me. I’m hoping he’ll wear the matching one that he still has. I’m also wearing my mom’s pearl necklace, not as sentimental but I like it for my “something borrowed”.

You can see the brooch in the silly photo below. I wear it on a necklace most often, but for the wedding I’m going to pin it to my dress down near my hip. I think I’m nearly as excited about that as I am about  my dress!

well my ering of course is very meaningful, but i always get to wear that! it was originally my fi’s great grandma’s and has been passed down, his mom was wearing it before it came to me. i’ll probably also wear the bracelet that my grandpa (who has passed away) gave to my grandma for their 50’th anniversary. i feel like that might be lucky.

I’m wearing a heart necklace my fiance gave me when we first started dating! It’s really simple, but it’s special to me.

I’m planning to wear my grandmothers pearl necklace which my Mum gave to me a couple of years back, that’ll be my something old.

I also wear my grandmothers engagement ring (on my right hand) every day anyway; it has a sapphire in the centre so may well end up being my something blue!!

My family doesn’t have any jewelry to pass down, but I did get my great grandmother’s handkerchief.  She crocheted a border on it and dyed it blue.  It really meant a lot to have something sentimental with me on my big day, so happy for you that you’ll have something too!

I didn’t actually wear a piece of jewelry myself. However, I needed to spruce up my plain satin clutch, so I pinned on a gorgeous broach of my grandmother’s.

What a great topic! 

I wore the pearl necklace my mom wore when she got married (my sister also wore the same necklace for her wedding), and I wore my grandmothers watch (on my dad’s side) and my grandmothers bracelet (on my mom’s side).  One was silver and one was gold and they didn’t really match but I didn’t care.

Congrats to all of you future brides!
