I love vintage Hollywood glamour, which is why my dress and my girls’ dresses all have that hint of Hollywood-glamour-meets-rock-star going on. So when I went to find jewelry, I wanted something that this lady right here would have loved to wear:
I love Ingrid Burgman’s style. Classy yet bold. I spent a long time looking for jewelry that fit that criterion, but with all the detail going on in my dress it also had to be simple. When I saw this photo on Overstock, I knew this was what I was looking for:
There were two problems though—it cost too much $$ and was way too green. So, I put an alchemy request out on Etsy for a similar necklace with a clear stone and a thinner chain. I got UBER lucky and Launa from Looking Glass Silver told me she could do it with no problems. I was a little worried ordering from another country, but SHE DID A FANTASTIC JOB!!!
I was floored by the quality of the necklace. It was exactly what I wanted. Simple, yet bold at the same time.
With the necklace bought and my ears not being pierced, the only piece of jewelry left (if I want one, I’m still not sure) is a bracelet. I was thinking about starting a Pandora bracelet from Medawar Jewelers:
If you have never seen a Pandora bracelet, it’s one where you can pick out different “charms” to put on it. They have all different kinds to signify different events in your life including a nice selection of wedding charms.
On their site they have a screen to design your own, and here is what I came up with:
I could start out simple with this “wedding ring inside a heart” charm and then I could add new charms for special occasions like anniversaries, etc.
What do you think? Get a bracelet, or go with just a necklace?
