I just finished reading Grace Bonney's post about "old, new, borrowed, and blue." The truth of the matter is that most of you will be wearing your something old in the form of a piece of jewelry passed down through your family. Older jewelry has a distinctive look that can sometimes be hard to match to its more modern cousins. So I dug up this source to help you out. Miriam Haskell has some great new vintage-inspired costume jewelry that pairs nicely with your actual vintage pieces. Costume jewelry is huge in the bridal industry right now, and the old-world flair of Miriam's jewelry puts these pieces in the unique position of being both timeless and trendy. I love all these pieces. Even the brooches make great bridal hair accessories. What do you think of them? What are some of the jewelry vendors you are considering shopping at for your wedding? And what is your take on the current costume jewelry craze? Cheap or chic? I'm personally all for it, but I'm eager to hear what you all have to say about it.
