Rose Gold Bridal Jewelry for the Big Day

When it comes to trends, rose gold is the new black. We're seeing this perfect blend of copper and gold in all things girly -- nails, accessories, bags, and even bridal jewelry. Its warm hues are flattering on many different skin tones, adding a gorgeous, feminine glow. Not to mention it's so versatile in that it pairs well with silver, gold and diamonds. So why not opt for blush tones for the blushing (or power-tripping) bride with these stunning pieces by Gottlieb & Sons?

 

The Classic Cluster Pendant

29577B

Rose gold gives these clustered diamonds an extra pop in this pendant necklace, which is perfectly paired with a strapless sweetheart neckline or a deep V gown. Simple, dainty jewelry is gaining popularity for bridal looks this year, as brides begin to add more drama to the gown itself rather than the accessories. The rose gold does however add contrast to the classic white dress and makes this pendant a real game-changer.

 

Modern Yet Vintage

29079B

The copper alloy of rose gold has been used for many generations and has been called a series of different names over the years, such as pink gold and blush gold. Its use originally began in the 19th century in Russia and so it is also known as "Russian gold". Rose gold pieces for brides now nod to a more traditional era, while also taking on a more modern pattern like this bracelet by Gottlieb & Sons.

 

Stackable Luxury

29467B

One of the most popular choices for wearing rose gold jewelry is on a gorgeous ring. Without taking away from your engagement ring, rose gold seems to have more subtlety and softness on the hand. This ring encrusted with 7 linked diamonds is also stackable, allowing you to mix metals on your big day as you see fit! Who says you can’t go diamond-crazy with the sparkle?

 

Mixed Metals

29301B

For the chic bride, mixing rose and white gold like in this modern necklace is perfect for showing off her unique personality. It says you’re not afraid to break the rules and live life on the edge, while also staying true to your fashion conscience.  This solid rose gold piece brings out the diamonds encrusted in the white gold, while providing feminine pink tones. There is seriously nothing but happy tears flowing for this teardrop shaped necklace.

 

Chain Link Bracelets

29769B

Chain Links are becoming more and more popular for 2017, and we're not just talking about the old ball and chain. Brides are opting for these links of love for their wedding day, especially now that they come with rose gold accents like this gorgeous chain from Gottlieb & Sons. Chain link bracelets are also versatile in that they can be worn even after your wedding without looking too over-the-top.

 

Bottom line, you can't go wrong with rose gold for your big day. Whether you're a more traditional bride who likes the elegance of a simple pendant, or a trendy, modern bride who is drawn to chunkier or more abstract pieces, rose gold jewelry is going to let every bride dominate in her pics.

Classic Engagement Rings for the Old School Gal

When we think old school, the word “vintage” comes to mind. But why are so many brides drawn to the elegant look of these pieces? Maybe it’s because there’s something so precious about them, or because they take us back in time when chivalry was alive and well. Whatever it is, the intricate designs of antique style engagements rings are perfect for the old school bride with an appreciation for the timelessness of such jewelry. Gottlieb & Sons has a large collection of vintage inspired rings for every bride, that each have their own unique twist on their tribute to a previous era.

 

The Victorian Era

26095B

The 1800’s Victorian era was marked by Queen Victoria’s reign of England. During this time, many women’s engagement rings were inspired by the Queen herself who had an emerald engagement ring as it was her birthstone. Did you know that most engagement rings during this era featured the birthstone of the bride, rather than the diamond we know today? This engagement ring by Gottlieb & Sons is a testament to this era, with modern touches of diamonds surrounding the emerald itself.

 

The Edwardian Era

27530B

During the reign of King Edward, the era was known as Edwardian—sounds fancy, right? Back then, rings were often made with platinum, which enabled the creation of more complex designs due to its strength. Such designs were inspired by lace and flower petals that made for engagement rings that were feminine and intricate in their silhouette, such as the one on the right from Gottlieb & Sons.

27276

Many brides who opt for a more vintage inspired ring enjoy the Edwardian engagement rings because of their unique patterns. They were also not limited to diamond cut, as the one above shows circular cut diamonds, but square shapes were also very popular during this time. The combination of soft vine-like designs with a squared-off center diamond created a stunning contrast that really makes the ring pop!

 

Art Deco

25058

Rush into the roaring 20’s with cool, architectural style jewelry. The use of white gold was on the rise and linear rings were all the rage. Simple bands were also popular during this time, but could be livened up with bold gemstones or several diamonds instead of one centered diamond. An engagement ring from this era is perfect for an artsy bride (or the closeted flapper) — think Jordan’s style from The Great Gatsby, for all you Leonardo DiCaprio lovers out there!

 

Old Hollywood

27490B

As the second World War came to a close, the 50’s promised a life of luxury for many families. Hollywood actors and actresses rose to stardom and inspired glamorous, over-the-top accessories, including engagement rings of course. It was gold’s time to shine during this period, with most rings featuring yellow gold bands encrusted with diamonds like this one featured by Gottlieb & Sons.

 

Each of these gorgeous rings are inspired by eras of romance and class. So, if you’re a trendsetter or trend-reviver with a huge heart for history, you were meant to have a vintage inspired ring.

Top 5 Bridal Looks from Romantic Comedies

You might already follow a bunch of wedding related shows and about a million Pinterest boards for your wedding vision. BUT, what would your perfect bridal look really be without a little inspiration from classic rom com movies? Aren’t they what had us believing in true love in the first place?

Since you finally found that show-up-at-your-doorstep, kisses-you-in-the-pouring-rain kind of love that you see in the movies, you want to achieve a bridal look that gets your groom thinking he married a girl straight out of a fairytale (or rather, a romantic comedy). So take note ladies, these bridal looks are worthy of imitation and they're going to have your hubby-to-be's jaw on the floor.

 

Mamma Mia! - Sophie (Amanda Seyfried)

1

Planning a destination wedding? Or at least a lakeside wedding? Look no further than Sophie's bridal look from Mamma Mia! Let's talk about the dress first: layers of tumbling chiffon encrusted with jewels are absolutely stunning on Sophie and go perfectly with the island setting. Not to mention her long, textured waives are flattering for any hairstyle and the flower crown added to this beautiful bohemian bridal look.

28396B

Sophie kept it simple with the jewelery -- no necklace, small studded earrings and a bracelet. This bohemian-inspired bracelet from Gottlieb & Sons features black and white diamonds in a leaf silhouette – perfect for your island bride look.

 

Bride Wars - Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway)

2

Besides being one of the cutest wedding movies about BFFs, the film also features two of the most gorgeous bridal looks in rom com history. Liv looks like she just stepped off the top of a wedding cake, and Emma's elegant dress was passed down from her mother (thankfully her mom had good taste).

29678B

Liv's Vera Wang dress has all the tulle layering you could ever dream of (seriously you could get lost in it) and an innocent satin bow defines her waistline, while her Bridget Bardot bangs give her a bit of an edge. Two-tone drop earrings from Gottlieb & Sons would pair perfectly with her up do.

29678B

Em's taffeta dress with an off the shoulder strap gives more of a romantic feel, with a classic curled up do. Pair them with a more vintage-inspired earring from Gottlieb & Sons, like these rose and white-gold diamond clusters.

 

The Notebook - Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams)

3

Now what would this list be without the most romantic movie of all time? Let's just forget she didn't actually walk down the aisle in this look. Soft, romantic old Hollywood curls on this gorgeous redhead's character are stunning. Her post WWII gown features gorgeous lace details and an off-the-shoulder illusion with nylon material covering her shoulders kind of reminds us of Kate Middleton's dress -- and who doesn't want to look like a princess on their wedding day?!

27476

Now for the jewelry...think vintage-inspired like this square classic from Gottlieb & Sons. Top it all off with a long, flowing veil and a crown of pearls and you'll be looking more beautiful than Ryan Gosling's ex beau (It’s tragic they’re no longer together).

 

The Hangover - Tracy Garner (Sasha Barresse)

4

For an extremely light-hearted movie, this girl's got some serious style in the bridal department. This look is for the bride that wants a sweetheart silhouette. Her strapless silk gown with a swan-like fit complements her shape. The satin ribbon adds just a hint of spice to this classic dress.  

29363B

Tracy breaks the rule that you can't rock a ponytail to your wedding – her gorgeous side-swept hairdo with floral details fall effortlessly on her bare shoulders. Finish it off with this diamond necklace by Gottlieb & Sons, adding just the right amount of bling to this bridal look.

 

The Vow - Paige (Rachel McAdams)

5

Rachel McAdams’ bridal look in this movie is quirky yet cute. Now we're not saying you have to go all out with the floral pink AND short gown, but you could do one or the other. Short dresses are certainly making a return and they're perfect for summer weddings, while pink makes a statement that’s naturally unforgettable.

29533

The bouncy pink veil adds more fun to this look, while the jewelry is minimal to balance everything out. To add the ideal finishing touch, this white, yellow and pink halo diamond ring from Gottlieb & Sons is a beautiful cross between classy and unique.

 

 

One of these ideas is bound to strike some interest for your perfect bridal look -- after all, Hollywood is where all the style trends tend to begin. But the best part is, your romantic comedy doesn't end when the credits come on!

Wedding bells are ringing! You’ve planned the theme, proposed to your bridal party, you’ve got the dress, and now it’s time to add the finishing touch: Jewelry!

High Neckline

Break up this traditionally feminine look with some modern hoop diamond earrings. Perfect for brides who love keeping it classy, but still crave some flavor, these earrings create a memorable way to add some fire to your flair. So, channel your inner Grace Kelly (with a dash of Kardashian) as you walk down the aisle. When it comes to fashion, who says you need to choose sides?

29765B

 

Up-Do Hairstyle

An up-do hairstyle leaves tons of room for creativity with your glitz-- yes!

29373B

 

 

 

Bracelets

 

When the photographer zooms in on that bouquet, you’ll want to be prepared. 

28194B

Give the camera an eye-full with a breathtaking bracelet. Depending on the style of your dress, you can either play up the glamor with a chunky cuff bracelet or keep it subtle yet elegant with a beautiful diamond bracelet.

27588B

Just try not to overdo it and make your hand appear cluttered.  Don’t make the bridal faux pas of trying to look like a diamond-draped princess, but ending up like an indecisive bling addict.

 

Blush Dress

3

As every trendy bride knows, blush or peachy toned wedding gowns are very in for the Spring wedding season and look great on all skin tones. But accessorizing this color may be a bit more of a challenge. This feminine style calls for even more feminine jewelry. 

28036B

Opt for pretty and elegant pearls or tear drop clusters, try them in a beautiful rose-gold color and look pretty in pink.

 

Something Blue

4

For “something blue” in your wedding attire, consider a large cocktail ring like this gem by Gottlieb & Sons.

29005B

A cocktail ring will add a special touch to accent a dress that has texture or is surfaced with lace or detailed embroidery. If your dress lacks shimmer, a large cocktail ring will do the job and give it some edge. Basically, it offers a truckload of oomph to ensure you’re not a basic B (bride).

 

 

On a day that is always linked to classic beauty and tradition, how often do brides ever get the chance to wear something truly trendsetting? On the day where all eyes are on you, let your fashion conscience be your guide. Good luck to all of you beautiful brides to be!
