Vintage a trend in bridal jewelry
"Vintage remains a strong trend in bridal jewelry," according to Jill Maier, VP of design at CAROLEE.
Harking back to the adage that "everything old is new again," brides are favoring art deco, estate-inspired silhouettes when it comes to jewels.
The mix of crystal and pearl is a signature look of CAROLEE.
It's a timeless combination fused into an array of bridal designs: florette bracelets, delicate drop earrings, vintage-inspired necklaces.
Here, the bride can rest easy knowing she won't have to sacrifice for style: the majority of the collection comes in under $100.
These pretty pieces are perfect for the blushing bride and their versatility makes them ideal for the bridal party as well.
The desire to look fabulous without spending a fortune has never been quite so high.
Many brides are choosing just one or two standout accessories, balancing a modern detail-oriented ceremony and reception with their minimalistic, classic ensemble.
Maier also notes, "The beauty of this jewelry is that it's distinctive without being overwhelming. It can be worn alone and looks great layered."
