Traditionally, when we think of weddings we normally picture an all-white affair. White dress, white flowers, white diamonds….here’s where we’d like to see a change. We love the idea of switching from the traditional jewelry such as white diamonds to colorful gemstones on your big day.
Our Facebook Fan of the Week did just that, Sandra Hicke-Bayne got married last year in Barbados. Instead of the traditional white diamonds to accessorize her gown she opted for her birthstone, Garnet. This deep red gem also seemed quite appropriate since she got married the day after Valentine’s Day.
Sandra wore several Garnet pieces from Ice.com on her wedding day including a Garnet bracelet & earrings, Garnet & Diamond necklace and a three heart Garnet ring! The rich red hue looks lovely against her white gown.
We’re predicting lots of vibrant jewels to hit wedding aisles in 2011. Princess bride-to-be Kate Middleton will likely enhance the trend at her April wedding to Prince William. She’ll be wearing Princess Diana’s famous Sapphire Engagement ring. We’re looking forward to seeing what exquisite jewels she pairs the ring with at the Royal Wedding.
Thank you Sandra for sharing your wedding day photos with us and including Ice.com on your special day. We wish you and your husband a happy and healthy life together. Happy early-Anniversary!
