Bling bling

I'm just going to put this out there: I'm not into pearls. I know they're "traditionally bridal" and "classic" and all of those other wonderful words, but I just can't get into them. At least not on my wedding day. They're a little too "cute" and I'm just a little too "sassy" for that.

On the other hand, I LOVE rhinestone jewelry. You get all the sparkle and bling of diamonds, but without the hefty price tag. For my wedding day look, I envision a fabulous pair of rhinestone earrings paired with an equally fabulous rhinestone bracelet. With all of that going on, I'm going to leave my neck bare. I've been searching for the perfect rhinestone bracelet (which I don't even wanna TALK about...grr), but recently my mom bought me a pair of rhinestone earrings from an area antique store. When she first sent me a picture, I was kind of underwhelmed. But last night I finally was able to see them in person and OH MAH GAH I love them.

The picture does not do them any justice. They are so freaking sparkly. They're clip-on, but my mom is going to replace the clips with posts. I wasn't able to try them on with my dress, but I know they will look awesome. Now I just have to find a damn bracelet.

Are you walking the pearl path, or going down the rhinestone route? (See what I did there with the alliteration? My communications degree is getting some use!)


  1. Those are FABULOUS!

    I will be going with rhinestones and diamonds. The earrings and necklace I will be wearing were provided to me by my g'ma.

  2. Love them! I have a pretty vintage rhinestone pin that you are welcome to borrow if you need some more bling!

  3. Gorgeous jewelry! As you saw, I am going the pearl route...but I love me some sparkles too!

  4. OMG I can't believe that is your dress--how weird! I bet you're going to look blazing hot in it--it's a gorgeous gown!
