If you’re planning your wedding, you know there are a million and one details that have to be taken care of. One of these concerns is wedding jewelry. The engagement ring is the obvious big deal, but it’s not the only jewelry issue you want to address. This helpful checklist will help you make sure you’ve got all your bases covered:

Wedding Bands

Whether you’re planning a one-ring or two-ring ceremony, you’ll want to be sure you have your wedding band well in advance of your ceremony. If you’re choosing to have custom wedding bands made to commemorate your one of a kind love story, begin that process three to four months in advance. Designer wedding bands can often be obtained more quickly, but you still want to leave a cushion of at least a week to make sure both rings fit properly!

The Bride’s Jewelry

Will you be wearing earrings on your special day? How about a necklace or bracelet? The bride’s jewelry can be chosen specifically to complement the wedding gown, or it may be a family heirloom piece with sentimental meaning. Top traditional choices include white or colorless jewelry, including pearls and diamonds, with white gold being the most popular metal. Any jewelry you’re wearing on your wedding day should be jewelry you can wear with absolute confidence: if you’re wearing a vintage piece, have our Master Jewelers look it over for you a month before the ceremony to make sure it will serve you well.

The Groom’s Jewelry

An impressive watch, luxury gold chain, cuff links and tie tacks are among the fine jewelry options for men to wear on their wedding day. The groom’s jewelry is often used to introduce a subtle hint of color to his ensemble: choose gemstones or watch faces to complement your wedding colors.

For The Moms

Being the Mother of the Bride or Groom is a very emotionally profound experience – for you and for them. It’s a very nice tradition for your intended & you to pick out a piece of jewelry for each one’s Mom to wear on your wedding day. This is also true for Stepmoms and anyone else who’s been like a Mom to you. Pins and pendants are the most popular choices: keep in mind you’ll want to choose a piece that works with the outfit Mom’s planning to wear.
