Brides are being love struck by the Almost Instant Jewelry system, making their own stunning big-day baubles. Falling right in line with the colored stones and decadent gems we're seeing on the most stylish brides of the moment, this jewelry is the perfect complement to any fairytale wedding.

Developed with brides in mind, the Almost Instant Jewelry system offers economical and easy-to-design style, saving busy brides-to-be valuable time and money. It's as simple as 1, 2, 3: choose a stone, add epoxy and place in setting for an eye-catching result.

Colorful and sparkling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS fancy stones fit perfectly into the calibrated jewelry settings, giving brides the ability to customize bracelets, necklaces, earrings and more with a high-end appearance. Let the wedding party design their own statement pieces at a bridal shower and create beautiful jewelry gifts for the mother of the bride and groom and special guests. The finished jewelry can also be used as thank you gifts or over-the-top wedding favors.
Almost Instant Jewelry Components
Shop from a wide selection of pendant, bracelet, earring, drop, focal, link and ring settings, available in many different-colored metal finishes, and then browse the large array of fancy stones and cabochons to find the perfect embellishment. Brides can easily coordinate jewelry with their wedding colors and personalize for special meaning. Just adhere with epoxy, such as G-S Hypo Cement, 2-part epoxy or Apoxie® Sculpt and the jewelry is ready to wear. Almost Instant Jewelry components can also be incorporated into jewelry designs, such as the drop, focal and link settings, for brilliantly beautiful pieces. For example, add an Almost Instant Jewelry pendant to a strand of pearls for a sophisticated look.
