Wedding Jewelry

In case you all were dying for a wedding update, I'm figuring out what jewelry to wear for the wedding.  I have my grandma's wedding jewelry that I'm planning to wear with a purple dress for the rehearsal:

Isn't it great??  I would take a page from the Man Repeller and do an edition of "Who Wore It Best?" but my grandma would win, hands down.

But this still leaves to be decided what jewelry I'll wear for the wedding.  I have a fairly simple dress (with straps) and a pair of simple, small, cubic zirconia drop earrings, so I'm thinking of doing something a little over the top for a necklace.  Now, "over the top" for me is still pretty conservative.  With that in mind this is what I've found so far:

On Etsy

From Kohl's

What do you think??  I also have a very simple aquamarine necklace (from John at Christmas) that I could wear, but it's much smaller than these choices.
Per Lynn's request :)

What do you like best?


  1. Hmmmm...both are pretty, but I think I'm leaning towards the Kohl's necklace or the aquamarine one. Can we get a picture??? Lynn :)

  2. I like the etsy but I love big & bold pendants.

  3. I love the one from Kohl's, but I think either would look gorgeous with your dress!

  4. I love the vintage look of your Grandma's necklack, but my favorite color is purple so... I think you should change it throughout the day :).

  6. Thanks for the picture! I like the aquamarine best for sentimental reasons, but the Kohl's necklace would also be pretty.

    Hey...the aquamarine necklace would also count as "something blue"!


  7. Your Grandmas jewelry is wonderful. You will look great wearing it. For the wedding I like the Etsy necklace. Xxxx

  8. Thanks everybody for the feedback!! I actually had my first fitting today (the dress doesn't even need to be hemmed!) and we ordered a necklace/earring set there. It's purple and sparkly... stay tuned to see if it works out :)

  9. Holly, your grandmother's jewelry is beautiful. You are so lucky to be able to have something of hers. She looks lovely in her picture!
    I am excited to see your wedding pictures and see what you end up wearing!

  10. Oh, thank you, Betsy! I'm excited to wear it for the rehearsal.
    I'll definitely be posting LOTS of pictures!
