Many brides are happily steering clear of expensive wedding jewelry. In addition to the financial burden of authentic stones and precious metals, the worry over lost or broken items is a headache, too. Cheap wedding jewelry allows a freedom in purchasing as well as wearing, because no heavy investment has to be made.
Costume jewelry is very much in vogue today, although its popularity dates back many years. Back in the 1930's, costume jewelry was viewed as an inexpensive and practical way to purchase a special piece for a particular outfit. In fact, as styles changed, jewelry was often discarded and more costume jewelry pieces were purchased to complement the changing fashions.
Today, costume wedding jewelry allows brides and their bridal parties to wear any style jewelry. With faux pearls, rhinestones, cubic zirconium, crystal beads, and much, much more, costume jewelry can mean one simple elegant stone or a large multi-layered necklace filled with imitation diamonds. It can be subtle or dramatic, a small enhancement or a show stealer!
Costume jewelry can be purchased as complete sets boasting earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, and even anklets. Some bridal parties enjoy matching all of their jewelry in this way, while others may prefer to stay with the traditional matched dresses, but allow their differing jewelry to reflect personal preferences and variation.
Faux pearls are very popular when it comes to wedding adornments. White and ivory are the traditional choices, and they can often be matched to dresses and veils. However, one can find pearls in silver and black in addition to the many shades of pastels. Faux pearls are glamorous and affordable, and they make a striking choice for wedding jewelry.
Watches are another fun consideration when it comes to choosing wedding jewelry. Lovely ribbon watches allow for an elegant yet affordable display. These timepieces, produced with straps made of satin, velvet, or silky ribbons, are both inexpensive and lovely. Fabric bands are comfortable and chic. Tiaras and hair jewelry are also available, with dramatic stones that glitter as they add a feeling of ornate grandness.
If a rhinestone tiara is too dramatic, consider dainty rhinestone barrettes, or even decorative bobby pins. With the turn of a head your hair jewelry will add just the right touch of sparkle or color to reflect your spirit. Hair glitter is another inexpensive way to decorate your tresses. With the ease of hairspray, your hair will reflect light and sparkle for many hours.
Costume wedding jewelry is great fun, very affordable and stunning. Let your inexpensive wedding jewelry reflect your spirit!
