Another, incredible option for bridal jewelry pendants is pearls. Also, a classic and famous gem stone the pearl has very often been used as the symbol of feminity.

As with diamonds, there has been many an art piece featuring pearls. From the Girl with the Pearl Earring portrait to the movie of its namesake pearls attract our attention and guide our imagination. For bridal jewelry, pearls have always made a classic appearance whether as earrings or bracelets or even sown into gowns. However, we see the pendants as a unique opportunity. Particularly for low cut or open neckline gowns, a pearl is a simple additional touch that accentuates your dress. Whether worn with a silky or lace gown pearls glow.

Colorful Gem Stone Pendants
Next, in our selection of pendants for your wedding day are truly unique colorful gen stone pendants. These feature some of the world’s colorful and scarce stones like tanzanite and emeralds. Unlike white diamonds and pearls, these are more statement pieces as the colors splash against gowns. While some are more understated than others they are each gorgeously unique in their own way. What color or style of pendant you wear it really is just personal preference. We have selected two colorful pendants to showcase the colorful stones and they are both very unique cuts. The cut of a stone gives it not only its shape but also brightness and how clear the color is. Depending on the cut of your gown’s neckline the shape of the pendant is also important. You want it to accentuate and adorn your gown in a way where it can complement your dress.
First, is a trillion cut Tanzanite gem stone pendant in a truly unique swooping 14k yellow gold setting. Also, this pendant has five accent diamonds along the outer edge of the stone. The design of the pendant is modern and elonganted. This style works best with gowns that have an open neckline so there is plenty of space for the pendant.

Finally, another option all together for a bridal jewelry pendant is a designer pendant. More focused on the iconic design and style of certain designers rather than on the specific stones being used these are ones that are emblematic of their brands. For a look that is recognizable and iconic a designer pendant is the best option.
