Accessorizing your every day summer soiree outfit can be easy with all the options the streets of NYC offer from small boutique shops, artsy street vendors and vintage resale stores. Options are endless and jewelry accessorizing is key, especially with stacking bangles and rings and layering necklaces all on trend. However, with wedding season in full swing, whether you’re the bride, a bridesmaid or just a guest, picking the right jewelry for that big day can be tricky, but you don’t have to compromise being on-trend when accessorizing for a wedding either.
I am currently obsessed with Dogeared Jewels, created by Marcia Maizel-Clarke when she recognized the need for a jewelry line that “speaks.” Pieces range from subtle and modern to statement and everything in between and each style celebrates something specific, whether it is love, friendship, or good fortune.
Dogeared recently launched a specific bridal collection with styles for everyone in the wedding party whether you are a bridesmaid, maid of honor, mother of the bride, flower girl or the bride to be. The “Celebrate Love” gold dip necklace is ideal for bridesmaids with a teardrop stone on a gold dip chain in an array of colors, which will easily match nearly any dress color. It is a subtle, yet ideal way for the bridal party to match as well as a great option as bridesmaid gifts.
The “Tying the Knot” necklace, available in sterling silver or gold, is a perfect gift from a bridesmaid to her bride, perhaps as a shower gift. The necklace features a large bow charm that is meant to be worn as a reminder of your love, passion and commitment. Or the simple and delicate “Flower Girl” sterling silver cherry blossom charm necklace is the finishing touch on any flower girl and bears the message of thanking the little lady for leading the way down the aisle. Pricing varies based on sterling silver or gold. Check out http://www.dogeared.com for more! Also available at Bloomingdale’s.
I recently stumbled upon a website called BaubleBar, and it is a site that must not be overlooked. This site is absolutely the one stop shop when it comes to jewelry that is on trend and definitely offers a little something for everyone at highly affordable price points. From button earrings, to stackable bracelets and bangles to neon acrylic necklaces, BaubleBar is a jewelry accessory heaven. Especially if you are a guest at an upcoming wedding, these jewelry pieces are bound to turn some heads!
Destination wedding? No problem. BaubleBar has colorful jewelry that will accessorize any outfit from a rehearsal dinner to an after-wedding brunch. Attending a casual chic wedding and trying to glam up a low-key dress? Done. The variety of jewels offered are sure to spice up any outfit. Or, even if you are bride on a budget looking to make your accessories go a long way, BaubleBar has a collection they call “Diamond District” offers dazzling chandelier earrings as well as other ice cluster earrings that are sure to look stunning without spending a small fortune. Cluster earrings start at about $34 with chandeliers going up to about $58. Or if you are more of a classic pearl gal, pearl necklaces and earrings starting at $28.
What is even better about this website is that once you register, which is free, you collect points that go into a vault. Of course, the more you spend, the more points you get which result in dollars off on future purchases, but just for signing up, you get 100 points or $10 off your first order.
