The store where I bought my dress, Vocelles, had a trunk show one weekend featuring jewelry and accessories from Haute Bride. I picked Bridesmaid BOC up on a rainy afternoon and we headed to our appointment. On the way I told her what I was looking for—a small dangly earring that was possibly sapphire. We arrived and were greeted by so much beautiful jewelry…
There were so many options! Above is only a sampling of the large selection we got to look at (and try on!). There was one pair that immediately caught my eye, an oval sapphire stone with a clear crystal halo.
These were exactly what I described to BOC! I sent pictures to my sister, who agreed they were a good choice. The owner of the store could tell I was close to making a decision, so she asked if I wanted to put on my dress to see how they looked together. Yes! It was so fun to get to put my dress on, even though the store sample was a bit too big (better than the opposite!). They looked perfect together! The owner showed me another pair just to see if I could like something any more than I liked those. She said these earrings could be done with a similar halo as the ones above:
They were a bit bigger than I wanted, so I ruled them out pretty quickly. I don’t think I am going to wear a necklace, but this one would be a good choice if I decide to, since it matches the earrings:
Want to know what may have been the decision maker? BOC pointed out that they look like Kate Middleton’s ring! Sold! I think my new theme for the wedding is Kate Middleton—is that OK?
Now the only item left to complete my “look” is shoes, which is turning out to be more of a process than I hoped. But that’s a story for another day!
