Pearls of Wisdom
Wedding project ideas and style how-tos for brides, bridal jewelry designers and wedding planners.
Brides are thinking pink when it comes to wedding dresses, hair accessories, flower bouquets, make-up, nails, shoes and of course, jewelry. As seen on celebrity brides such as Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel, pink is being translated into mainstream wedding fashion and design. This feminine, youthful and eye-pleasing color offers a shade for everyone from pastel/pale pink to bright candy-like pink (and yes even neon pink) for the most fashion-forward brides. Whether it is a pop of pink you're after or a head-to-toe pink ensemble, jewelry is a great way to incorporate this on-trend color into the special day.
Mellow rose, an almost neutral/pastel pink, is known to be one of the most universally flattering colors, complementing any skin tone and hair color. Highlighting the natural flush of a bride's face, this sophisticated color is a top choice for wedding jewelry because of its versatility and wide appeal. Design with rose quartz beads, briolettes and cabochons for stunning pieces that can include gold- or silver-colored elements or a blend of both. Pink cultured freshwater pearls and Swarovski pearls, pink river shell and mother-of-pearl shell beads and components also exude this sought-after shade for beautifully feminine jewelry. Pair pale pink with Emerald green, the 2013 Pantone® color of the year, for stunning results.
Punch up the color with brighter shades of pink found in Swarovski crystal beads and components, Dione™ beads, chalk turquoise beads and gemstone beads. Bright pinks, such as fuchsia, combine well with mint green or aquamarine for a stunning wedding color theme. Right in line with the current neon color trend, brides are also using neon pink in jewelry for a fun and unexpected pop of color. Great for bridesmaids' gifts as well, pink jewelry makes an outstanding statement. Easily shop SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS by color and gemstone beads by color to pick out the perfect pinks.
