Crafting Memories: Designing Jewelry for Wedding Couples  and Their Attendants

Custom Wedding Jewelry

 

The first “wedding” I did as a jewelry designer will never dull in my memory. The bride is still a friend of 20+ years. She opened my eyes to a new way of thinking about wedding day jewelry. 

She had a dozen bridesmaids - think "My Big Fat Greek Wedding”. She came into my studio with a notebook - each attendant had their page and info.- sizes, fabrics, colors and remarks. She wanted all the jewelry to coordinate, but not be identical - and to highlight the personality of each. We started pulling hanks of pearls and stones for colors - holding them up to the fabrics. One bridesmaid was 14 and an athlete. One only wore chunky jewelry. Another wore super dainty. We used the same few colors and stones but each piece was individual. It was a delightful experience that opened my eyes to the range of possibilities for jewelry for the big day.

For the bride - crafting special jewelry for herself and her dress was only one part of the equation. Designing jewelry for each special person in her wedding was a labor of love - a testament to the bond that united them on this joyous occasion. From elegant necklaces to dainty earrings, every piece was imbued with a sense of intimacy and care, reflecting the unique personality of its wearer.

In our more contemporary wedding culture - the possibilities for jewelry to play a part in the big event have only expanded as the traditional roles of bridesmaids and groomsmen have evolved to embrace a more inclusive approach reflecting the diversity and fluidity of modern relationships.

As jewelry designers, we more and more often consider all wedding attendants when crafting jewelry pieces/attendants gifts for the special day. The jewelry options have expanded for everybody to include stylish stretch bracelets, bolo ties or cufflinks, all of which serve as thoughtful and timeless gifts for wedding attendants. 

In the end, every couple dreams of their wedding day - the attire, the venue, the flowers, and of course - the jewelry. Designing jewelry for couples and their attendants is not just about creating beautiful adornments; it's about crafting memories that will be cherished for years to come. It's about celebrating love, unity, and the timeless bond between friends and family. And for me, there's no greater joy than being a part of that journey, one exquisite piece at a time.
