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

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

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

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

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

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.

Ring Styles for your Personality

So, your significant other listened to Beyoncé, and wants to put a ring on it?  Congrats!  But, are you now a little overwhelmed by the mission to find just THE perfect engagement ring?  Does it seem like Mission Impossible with so many options out there?  Well, the best strategy is just to relax and let your instincts (and maybe also your budget?) guide you.  Because ultimately, choosing the right engagement ring is pretty much an instinctive thing – you will likely be naturally drawn to designs that reflect your personality and taste, and you will know which ring should adorn your finger the minute you spot it.  It will be one of those Oprah’s “Aha” moments!

 

 

Practical

If you’re someone who chooses function over fashion, consider a solitaire set. With its classic simplicity, this setting evokes a subtle beauty—perfect for ladies who prefer taking a quieter approach to being fabulous. And best of all, it can easily match with your other jewelry pieces, making the art of coordination a delightful no-brainer.

Trendy

If you’re a diva who likes to stand out from the crowd, there are plenty of contemporary designs available. Halo settings, where your stone is encased by a heavenly pillow of small diamonds, is hugely popular. You could also explore the different shapes of stones available, from circular to marquise.

If you’re still not sure, you can add some oomph with a mixed metal band, or a pop of color such as rose gold. Who says engagement rings can’t make a statement?

Elegantly complimenting your freshly polished manicure and designer clutch, you’ll be thinking, “I’m so fancy. You already know!” while sipping on your low-fat latte and reapplying your rouge lipstick.

Glitzy

For the foot-stomping bridezilla, glitz is the way to go! Jam-packed with high-quality diamonds, sapphires and a fat rock, you’ll join the exclusive club of A-list engagement rings.  While inexpensive (and totally brag-worthy), you can treat your finger like royalty, giving her a crown fit for Kate Middleton herself.

You can wear it alone as a stunning statement piece or go wild by matching it with other jewelry. Go bling or go home!

Bohemian

If you’re a bohemian or a romantic soul, you’re best to simply follow your heart. Ignore the trends, the hype and the pressure to be fashionable and choose a ring that genuinely speaks to you. It could be unique, quirky or vintage— walk your own line when it comes to finding the perfect design. This way, whatever you choose will make a natural accompaniment to your carefree style, whether you’re a guitar player, hemp wearer or completely addicted to sriracha.

There are, of course, a few other styles betwixt and between those mentioned here.  But the point is, to think about and settle on a handful of descriptors that feel true to your personality and style before you embark on your engagement ring quest.  And once you’ve armed yourself with this critical criteria, it shouldn’t be too long before you’ll be waving your left hand in front of your friends to the tune of their sincere “Ahhs” and “Wows”!
