Glittering Gems: Things we Love!

Move over Queen Elizabeth… there is a new royal in town!

Just as gorgeous as your gown, gems and crystals are among the great accessories for a bride to wear on
her special day. They add just the right “bling” needed to finish the ensemble.

While big and bulky necklaces are a stunning way to show off your sparkling eyes, dangling necklaces
have to ability to elongate your neckline. And a drapery of multi-strands of pearls can add a touch of
class as well as a clean, sheer feel.

Earrings with gems and pearls are not only stunning but also gorgeous; the chandelier style being a
known favorite.

Bracelets, while more or less optional, can either be bold and bulky or not even noticeable. Either way,
you have to make it your own and look good doing it.

Hair accessories, however, is a must. From demure netting to peacock feathers, clips or hats, these
tasteful choices of décor are top choices in finishing the overall look.

Make Queen Elizabeth jealous, and have fun doing it!
