Well, pay her back and say you’ve decided to want to wear something else. She may be dsiappointed, but I know my mom would be more disappointed if i wore something I didn’t REALY want to wear because her own good intentions got the better of the situation.

Are you a “real jewelry” kind of girl in general? I know I am, so I’d be able to feasibly pull out the excuse that I wanted to wear real pearls/diamonds/gold versus crystal and it wouldn’t be weird since I don’t generally wear that kind of stuff.

I don’t think it’s a jerk thing to do…if anything, your mom didn’t take what YOU wanted to wear into consideration. And for $100, you could’ve gotten a really nice string of real pearls. Just let her know she didn’t take your own feelings into consideration and you want to wear something else. I’m not sure what else to expect when you jump the gun, you know?

Yikes, you’d think your mom would know better than to buy you big glitzy jewelry knowing you don’t wear jewelry in the first place!  I think you should time it, and just keep the conversation on the back burner until she is having one of her “good days.”  Then tell her how you never wear jewelry, and you’re not comfortable wearing that big hunkin necklace on your big day.  (Maybe even say it’ll “strangle” you…)  No matter how she takes it, that’s how you feel, and it’s better to be honest than spend your life looking at wedding pictures of yourself and wishing you didn’t have on the necklace.

Is it something you could wear to the rehearsal dinner instead….. Then have her wear it the day of the wedding?
