Bridal Jewelry Custom Made

This bride cried when she tried it on with her tiara, it was a perfect match and captured the essence of what she envisioned for her bridal jewelry set.  This was a perfect example of wearing a family heirloom and having a new future heirloom created for her to give to her daughter one day.  Many times, we want to incorporate family heirloom jewelry, however it can be difficult for finding jewelry in the stores that matches as  jewelry in the stores is usually manufactured with newer materials.  If you are thinking of using a family heirloom piece as part of your bridal jewelry accents, then you might want to consider having your pieces custom made with vintage crystals and findings.  I can say that many of my brides actually find bridal jewelry sets on the web site that are perfect to be the added compliment to their vintage accessories as I create with the newest Swarovski crystals available and the styles are reminiscent of vintage era’s so they become timeless pieces.  When it really comes down to it, the jewelry we wear on our wedding day has an amazing significance which we are reminded of our wedding day each time we wear our jewelry!
