Haute Baubles

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!

How did you complete your look?

    Beautiful choice! I’m going with sapphires as well. My FI gave me an earring/necklace/bracelet set our first Christmas together, so they are already very special to me. Can’t wait to see your whole look together.

    I’m wearing sapphire earrings too! They are also going to serve as my “something blue”

    I got lucky last summer in Boston. I found my dream necklace at an outlet mall (seriously, I love this necklace to pieces almost on a daily basis now) and reconsidered a pair of earrings in store that had not impressed me online. Voila!

    I completed my look bit by bit, the first item after the dress was my necklace, then the purse, then the shoes, and finally a hair comb. I purchased lots of stuff online and returned it very often until I found the right item of each.

    Sapphires? I am so jealous, and they look great, I hope you’re planning to wear your hair up to show-em off.
    I really, really, really wanted a sapphire engagement ring, I have a thing for sapphires even though I don’t own any, a part of me wanted to splurge on some earrings or necklace to wear on the wedding, but the truth is the blue would be totally our of place with my outfit.

    Oh I love those earrings–good choice (I’m a sucker for anything blue though since that’s my favorite color)! I’m also going with blue-hued earrings (and surprisingly a necklace–I didn’t think I would wear one with my sweetheart neckline dress, but they match very well together).

    These are beautiful! I don’t think there is anything wrong with a Kate Middleton theme — she is a classy lady!
