Crystal Bridal Jewelry Gets a Dressing Down

Ever wonder what you’re going to do with your crystal bridal jewelry or pearl bridal jewelry after the BIG DAY has come and gone? True story: Few brides-to-be ever give this a thought. And why should they? Most are more concerned with the gown… will they preserve it? Sell it? Donate it? Mod it? Bridal jewelry sets tend to get worn, get saved, and eventually get pushed to the darkest corner of the jewelry box, never to be seen again.

You can imagine that we don’t like that fate very much.

Which is why we’d like to offer an alternative for after you say your I dos. Instead of treating your crystal bridal jewelry or pearl bridal jewelry like relics to be taken out and examined every now and then when you’re feeling a bit sentimental, why not actually (gasp!) wear it?

Oh, we get your lack of enthusiasm. Totally. Right now, you’re so wrapped up in wedding planning that you’re probably thinking when I get married, I’m never wearing another Swarovski crystal as long as I live! But hear us out. There’s something fun and chic about pairing the formal with the casual, right? That’s why we think our bridal jewelry sets deserve a good dressing down.

Imagine our dramatic Sensation CZ necklace paired with a plain black t or tank and jeans!

The same goes for our chunky coil pearl bracelet

And our Dominique rhinestone headband, too.

Don’t think you can pull it off? Whatevs. That’s why we put together the mini inspiration board above. Yes, that’s Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey in two of the pics, but the others are all actual real people who decided that there was no reason to keep neglecting the crystals and rhinestones in their jewelry collections. They did it and looked amazing. All we’re asking is that after the wedding, you give your bridal jewelry some love because you’ll look amazing, too.
