Gorgeous Jewelry for the Bride on a Budget

There are basically three options when looking for beautiful jewelry to wear with your wedding gown without breaking the bank. You can buy pretty costume jewelry at affordable prices, you can borrow real jewels from family and friends, or you can rent expensive, one-of-a-kind pieces. Whichever route you go, you are sure to sparkle!

If you are buying, here a few pretty trinkets I found by browsing online. These two pieces are availible at Anna Bellagio: Sophisticated and Affordable Bridal Jewelry. The earings cost $54.00 and the bracelet costs $48.00.


You can buy designer knockoffs such as this Fred Leighton Inspired  Earring & Pendant Set (89.99) or this Vera Wang Inspired Necklace ($49.99)at overstockjeweler.com.


If you just can’t abandon the thought of wearing real, red-carpet-worthy gems, you can rent peices from a place like Adorn Bridal. This Lloyd pearl and diamond bangle bracelet retails for $7,600.00 and can be rented for $290.00. These white gold and diamond earings would cost you $3,030 to purchase, but only $100 to rent.
