I was hoping to not spend very much on my jewelry- a simple necklace, simple earrings, and maybe a small splurge on a simple tiara.
I just found the most beautiful pearl jewelry from an Etsy seller:
And the necklaces are more than I wanted to spend, but not outrageously priced…
So tell me what you spent on jewelry- for each item and total.

Necklace and bracelet are my mom’s: priceless
Don’t buy from salons or stores labeled “bridal”; Macy’s, kohls and jc Penney as well as your local boutiques may have sparkly stuff for 1/10th the price of something labeled “bridal”

I found a site called http://www.weddingfactorydirect.com yesterday, and they seem to have LOTS of jewelry for decent prices. The bracelets are georgous. I think it is realistic to spend $100-$150 on accessories! Thats if you want necklace, earrings, bracelet, and hair clips. Mtrl01 is right, never buy these items from an actual bridal salon!!!

i bought my BMs earrings on Etsy from this shop:http://www.etsy.com/shop/MaryMorrisJewelry
She custom made the earrings for me, and added beads so they were longer. I paid ~20 each, and she was really fun to work with!

1000 for earrings and necklace set. WAY more than I thought I’d spend but I <3 them, and when I see pics I don’t regret it.
I also wore my engagement ring and mom’s engagement ring (something old) and SIL’s anklet (something borrowed) so I didn’t count thoes

Etsy is great for stuff like that!
I paid $150 CAD for statement earrings and a matching bracelet, but I needed hypoallergenic metal and also they just worked perfectly with my dress!

I spent $40 on a necklace and earrings from Etsy… they were beautiful, but I ended up wearing something I already had that was very special to my dad. I also spent $40 on a headband from Etsy that I loved!

Well, it sounds like my budget idea probably wasn’t very reasonable… looks like I have to up the budget a bit 😛 Does around $70 seem pretty reasonable for a pearl necklace and pearl earrings?
