The wedding ring is the single most important piece of bridal jewelry. While wedding rings may date back to the ancient Egyptians, bridal jewelry is a much newer tradition. White jewelry for the bridal attire became popular in the 1870s, and the custom of wearing a white wedding dress is thought to have originated with Queen Victoria. Floral pearl jewelry and lacy filigree jewelry can be the perfect complement.
Bridal jewelry should complement the gown, whether sleek and chic or billowing and romantic. The ensemble becomes an expression of your personal style. Subtly colored gemstones such as rose quartz, pale amethyst or blue topaz, and pearls in delicate tones of pink and peach are popular choices for bridal earrings. Silver jewelry settings are the most common, but some brides select gold.
Whatever you choose, your wedding jewelry commemorates an important milestone in your life, and may become a family heirloom — that "something old" chosen by daughters and granddaughters for their own weddings.
