Wedding and Bridal Jewelry
So your not one of those fabulous actresses or models who has the luxury of the finest gems and diamonds being loaned to them by the likes of Harry Wintson.
No matter, you can add a little sparkle and look extra-ordinaire in your gown on your wedding day. Here's some helpful tips on how to shine on your most important day!
Faking It is Fine! It doesn't matter if you cannot afford to adorn yourself in diamonds and pearls. The quality of Faux diamonds, gems, and pearls is amazing.
Gone are the days were anyone could tell real from fake. Only your gemologist will know real from fake. You can sparkle like a million dollar babe and you won't break the bank.
The best way to choose earrings is to try them with your gown. The best styled earring will depend on the neckline of your gown, the type of necklace you are wearing, and how you will be wearing your hair.
You want your earrings to be seen but you do not want them to be overpowering. Drop earrings or short dangle earrings work well and pearls or diamonds [real or fake] add elegance and sparkle.
If you're not wearing a necklace you may want to wear more dramatic earrings. If your dress is beaded and sparkly then you'll want to choose a more subtle earring so as not to detract from your gown..
Diamonds are a girls best friend, Pearls are truly a bride's best friend. Pearls never go out of style, but this season they aren't just in style, they are "hot".
Not only are they "hot" they are very versatile. Pearls have been worn by fashionable women for ages. You can choose to spring for cultured pearl or purchase quality imitation pearls for a fraction of the cost.
When buying pearls you will need to choose a strand length that enhances the neckline of your gown. The best size pearls to choose are in the 5 to 7 mm range.
There are many length choices with pearls. A pearl collar is usually made of 3 or more strands and measures 12-13 inches. A pearl collar will hug the middle of the neck so it works well with a v necks, plunged necks or off the shoulder gowns.
A choker measures 14-16 inches and is the most versatile length to own. It will work with any gown neckline.
The 17-19 inch Princess with either very high or very low necklines. There are longer lengths of pearls available however they are not very suitable for wedding gowns.
If your lucky enough to have a fabulous piece of jewelry that's a family heirloom, your wedding can be the perfect time to wear it. Feel free to ask family and friends to borrow a piece of jewelry you adore. They'll be honored that you asked.
It's also a great way to cover the "something borrowed." Wearing jewelry that's close to your heart is extra special because of emotional attachments.
Vintage jewelry is hot right now and can lend an added dimension to your bridal look. So if you have a favorite piece you'd like to borrow ? ask. If you spot a wonderful must have piece to buy, don't hesitate ? it's a hot statement this season!
Colorful jewelry is a great way to spice up your wedding day ensemble. Rubies, emeralds, and sapphires [real or fake] can add some punch to your wedding jewelry.
This season, colored pearls are a very "hot" fashion statement, available in a wide range of color from silver to bright pink. Just remember a little color is very good, but don't go overboard and take away from your beautiful gown.
Dare to Be Bare. The options in jewelry can be overwhelming. How do you know which length necklace looks best with your wedding dress? Is your trendy four-strand pearl collar strung on wires a bit too trendy? One way to go is to keep it simple.
As for necklaces, you might decide to skip them altogether. This allows you to show off your dress' stunning neckline whether it's strapless or high or in-between. And it allows you to show off your neck, which you might not want to show off in 30 years. You can also completely forego bracelets. Especially if you're going to wear gloves, a bracelet can look funny and get in the way.
The norm is to not wear a watch unless it is elegant and delicate enough for wedding day attire. However, these day's even your watch can count as a piece of jewelry.
There are some fabulous fashion watches available, many look like a bracelet. So if you just can't bear not wearing a watch, go shopping.
The choices for your hair jewelry are endless. Tiara's are very "hot" right now, however adding a necklace with the tiara might be a bit much. Sparkling crystal and rhinestone clips or pins are a nice touch to the brides hair adding a subtle sparkle.
The most important thing to remember is to keep your gown the center of attention. What ever jewelry choice you make, be they trendy, traditional, or funky be certain they work well with your gown and compliment it not over power it.
Jewelry is an important accent on your wedding day, but make sure it doesn't become center stage.

Astrology is considered to be the oldest of all sciences, which studies the effects of the planetary positions and movements on our lives. Indian Astrology is an integral aspect of the Vedic literature (Vedic Astrology) and was practiced over the years by Indian sages and passed on to their disciples.
