We love discussing engagement rings and wedding dresses, but if we’re being honest, they get all the attention. Earrings for brides, however, are an accessory that no walk down the aisle should go without. We know you’ve got your hands tied between planning everything from invitation designs to table settings, which can make it hard to keep up with the latest bridal earring trends. So we tapped jewelry designer Elisabeth Bell for her insight on what brides are wearing during this wedding season.
“Sentiment and meaning are something to consider; everyone has their classics, but it is important to have something that feels unique to you on your special day,” Bell says. Bell noted that brides are shifting away from traditional white diamonds to alternatives such as emeralds. “Emerald is considered the stone of successful love,” she explains.
According to the designer, she’s been doing a lot of redesigns for clients that have incorporated heirloom jewelry, which result in more contemporary pieces. Bell also noted a trend in opting for more modern designs such as hoops and earrings that you’ll want to wear to your nuptials and every day after.
