Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day and accessorizing with jewelry can make a real difference to the overall look that can be achieved. Bridal jewelry doesn’t have to be over the top or excessive for it to stand out and look stunning. This is especially the case if the wedding dress is already extravagant on its own!
Jewelry is very personal at the best of times so for a wedding day, it’s even more so. It can be quite tricky to find the perfect jewelry that will complement the rest of the wedding attire. However, there are plenty of jewelry materials available for brides to create their own bespoke bridal jewelry so that they can achieve the look they desire.
We stock a range of beads and jewelry making supplies that could be used to create bridal jewelry. We’ve shared our 5 favorites below!
1. Cultured Freshwater Pearls
Pearls are traditionally used in bridal jewelry as they are seen as luxurious and are often found in white, soft cream and peach colors, which will complement most wedding dress colors. These are white flat sided potato pearls which have a beautiful lustrous sheen as well as an irregular shape which helps to add texture and interest to jewelry creations.
You could use freshwater pearls like these for a classic bridal necklace or choker and they can be easily strung together using thread and finished off with a clasp.
2. Galvanized Seed Beads
Seed beads can be used in a range of bridal jewelry pieces. They are especially useful in adding detail to intricate beaded jewelry used as beadwork bracelets or earrings. These particular seed beads are finished in a rose gold galvanized coating, designed to shine when the light catches them. The rose gold color looks beautiful when paired with creams, ivories and whites.
3. Czech Glass Faceted Beads
Czech glass faceted beads are great for adding a little shimmer and sparkle to bridal jewelry, especially metallic beads like these. They look stunning when used as part of earrings or a tiara as they shimmer whenever they move. Although our faceted beads are available in different sizes, our 4mm silver Czech glass faceted beads work well in bridal pieces because they can add sparkle without overpowering the rest of the bride’s outfit.
4. White Candy Jade Beads
These White Candy Jade Beads are bold and beautiful. They could be used to create a statement necklace which would look amazing if the bride’s dress and other accessories are simple. When paired with a short tea dress, they can be added to create a vintage 1950s look. These beads are made from opaque quartz and are highly polished to form a gloss sheen.
5. Heart Charms
These tiny 10mm silver plated heart charms can be used in abundance as part of a bridal charm bracelet that will jingle and jangle! They’re made from a lead free base metal and are irregular in shape. They look incredibly beautiful on their own as a tiny understated pendant attached to a silver chain with a ring.
