It’s wedding season. Brides around the USA, following tradition, may be exploring blue fol-de-rol. The journey may culminate in a blue garter, it’s OK to be cheesy in wedding-land. But perhaps you are considering blue sparkle instead?
Congratulations! Beladora has launched their new website. I’ve been a blogfriend of the CEO for ages, have even met her in person. The site specializes in estate and occasionally antique jewelry. Try filtering by Blue. So many choices, or at the least so many pretty things to look at.
Consider. We will alphabetize so that we can pretend to be rational in the face of gems. You may actually have that gene. Quick, make yourself into a vaccine for the rest of us. Then consider a few choices.
a. The royal gesture of matched earrings and necklace. We’ll forgo tiaras for now. Options here range from pearl and sapphire parures, at a mere $19,000, to 18K modern earbobs for $800. One could acquire, or even make a string of aquamarine beads to match the bobs. Think about a small Tiffany sapphire starred with diamonds at your neck, contrasted with mid-century pearl and sapphire starred earrings.
b. While you can opt for a classic diamond and sapphire bracelet, I much prefer that pearl and sapphire grape cluster for $1850. To be avoided if you’re marrying in a vineyard – unless your theme is Full Bacchanalia, bridesmaids dressed as Maenads.
c. For a short-dress wedding, given the implied mid-century aesthetic, I think a blue zircon brooch is just the thing. And who says only brides get to play? Turquoise links and studs for the groom.
d. Rings. Opals hide their blue, in a flash here and there. Might be a good symbol in some relationships. Alternatively, commit to a honking big sapphire for a mere $5K and Kate Middleton the heck out of your day.
The icing on the cake, so to speak, that Beladora is offering $150 discount for each and every of you. Go to the site, sign in, create an account, and use the code SKYE for a $150 discount on any piece at Beladora.com or the more affordable Beladora 2. The code will be good until Mother’s Day. We do not cease to sparkle after our weddings after all.
Note: I’ve been given a $250 discount without requirement that I write anything. Plus I haven’t figured out what I want yet:). It will be dangly, however.
