    Default Wedding pearl necklaces

    Hello PG friends,
    I have been invited to exhibit at a designer stand, at a Paris wedding fair,
    I thought that this type of necklace would be suitable for brides, mixing pearl with either white rubber or braided steel as pictured, for a modern look, but what is your opinion ?
    What is the best pearl necklace for a bride, besides the full strand ?
    Thanks for advising.

    These will also make lovely accessories for the bridesmaids. It seems more brides are choosing non-traditional gowns, jewelry and color schemes; wanting to personalize the ceremony and save money, too.

    anna - been on your website a few times of course now but just checked again to see what i thought would be really 'bridal' (and i'm a bit quirky myself!). i love the white rubber! very 'futuristic"! i also LOVE the pink stingray (pink is pretty big for weddings the last few years i think - at least here in north america). plus, i really love the look of the 12 strand wire cables. in all the finishes: silver, gold and the pink and blue! i think those would be a BIG hit! the multi strands give it a very 'light' look i think. i'm wondering if the braided steel might be a bit too casual for a wedding look?

    for clasp options other than pearls (as if ANYONE would want to wear anything other than pearls!), i think the opals would be lovely with any of them too - so feminine.......

    so, that's my opinion - hope that's okay~!

    Hi CliClasp,

    Went to your website, I like how innovative your designs are! I see the pieces you show in this thread, being for not just the bride, but the entire wedding party. The darker colors for the men lighter colors for the women. Depending on the colors or theme of wedding colors to match or accent the outfits. Some examples of themes wedding I see these being worn include Steampunk, Luau or Beach themed weddings. (Just my first thoughts on these specific pieces.) Since themed weddings still seem "in favor" right now. Just my opinion.

    I am sure whatever you present will be fabulous!

    Cheers
    Ash
    Cheers,

    White rubber and pearls for weddings - LOVE IT! They're fun and not to be confused with anything your grandmother wore in her day.

    Hope these bring in the crowds and sales, Anna. Who could ever imagine that pink rubber could look so glamorous.
