Blingalicious Key Necklaces

Here’s an idea for guys who are afraid to pick out an engagement ring. What if you gave your gal one of Tiffany’s key necklaces and said “Here’s the key to my heart. Let’s go ring shopping?”

The guy gets to surprise the girl and the girl gets double bling. How perfect is that? The necklaces start at $100 and go up to $15K. They would also be great wedding, birthday or anniversary gifts…

Fashion Jewelry for Your Wedding Day

Weddings are all about the bridal party and guests wearing fashionable and “fancy” clothing and a great deal of thought and effort go into making a bride look fantastic for her “big day.”  I probably don’t have to tell you but, most modern brides will spend hours choosing and purchasing everything from special bags and shoes, to fashion jewelry that coordinates with their gowns.
But it doesn’t stop with the bride, most brides want their bridal parties to look their best too that includes groomsmen as well.  If you still haven’t gotten your bridal party gifts, why not give the guys and girls coordinated pieces of jewelry?

The fashion jewelry that a bride might present to her maid of honor and bridesmaids are often quite valuable, and usually include diamonds and precious metals. Items like simple pendant necklaces, delicate bracelets or elegant stud earrings.

Grooms might give his groomsmen cuff links, tie tacks and even watches. This sort of male fashion jewelry is also usually quite valuable and accented with diamonds and precious metals as well.

Just as any wedding planning is best done with plenty of time remaining in the schedule, so too is shopping for wedding jewelry for the entire bridal party. It is important to note that a shop or jeweler may not have a large enough quantity on hand or may need to resize certain items. So don’t wait too long try to finalize your decision more than a month before the wedding day.

Fashion jewelry is also a nice gift for the flower girl and ring bearer as well, and many couples will often present the youngest members of their party with their first valuable diamond or precious metal jewelry.
