    I wore “real” jewelery.  But it was all gifted to me so I treasure it in that aspect.  Left to my own accord, it didnt matter.  I wasn’t going to wear a necklace, but my grandmother got me a beautiful diamond necklace, and my mother got me two tennis bracelets, a diamond and a diamond/sapphire one.  My earrings were statement piece that were “costume” I guess since they were CZ or crystal.

    I wore a combo of real and costume. The earrings were CZ and the tennis bracelet was my grandmother’s. I didn’t wear a necklace as my dress had a high neck. I think do what makes you comfortable on the day.

    I’m wearing a matching diamond necklace and bracelet set that mean the world to me …..yellow rose cut pears and rounds in halos with a diamond chain in between. My Fiance is having drop earrings made to match as a wedding gift 😍 

    Not the best picture but here you go 😊

    Heres another of the bracelet…

    mrslivyl :  I wanted to wear fine jewelry for the wedding. I borrowed some diamond earrings from my Mother-In-Law, tennis bracelet was a wedding day gift from Darling Husband, then rings of course. My dress was embellished so I didnt want to wear a necklace. Maybe you can borrow if you dont want to buy.

    The site says launching spring so I highly doubt there are any reviews yet. Great idea though 😊

    I use custom made real earrings. Most of the very fancy things my mom and grandma own were yellow gold and I wanted white gold. I also love pearls, and they didn’t have what I was looking for. So my parents gifted me with some diamond and pearl earrings (I didnt use anything else, just my rings) 

    I went to the family jeweller and choose some flower earrings that I loved (white gold with very small diamonds) and looked very bridal and he attached a big pearl on them! 


    Mom was not a fan because they say that pearls bring tears, but I love them more than the bling!  They look so classy! 



    And my ring!!

    mrslivyl :  I wore real stuff but it was just big pearls in my ears and my rings,  check out white sapphires or mossy jewelry.  I’m not sure how rentals work, do you have a photo of what your going for?
