Bride’s Gift: Pearl Bridal Rings
Exchanging gifts between bride and groom on the day of the wedding is a popular wedding tradition. Great groom’s gift choices include cufflinks, a fine pen set or a nice leather valet for him to keep his new wedding ring inside. For the bride, jewelry makes a great wedding day gift that can be worn throughout her life and passed down to future generations. The usual jewelry-related bride’s gift consists of either earrings or a necklace, but there is a new trend among stylish brides of gifting right hand rings.
Since diamonds are the focus of the engagement ring and wedding band, pearl rings are a stunning choice for a timeless piece of jewelry that goes with anything. Accented with diamonds, a bold pearl ring for the bride can be worn for the wedding day and every day thereafter. By sticking with a gem as neutral as a pearl, the bridal right hand ring is sure to go with whatever style gown she has chosen. Gifting the bride a ring is actually even safer than giving her a pair of earrings or necklace to wear on the wedding day since the style of a dress usually dictates which style and size earrings or necklace should be worn to compliment it. Rings, on the other hand (no pun intended!), can be worn with a much greater variety of dress styles without clashing.
Three breathtaking pearl and diamond bridal rings we love hail from Apples of Gold. Their online store has just expanded its selection of pearls to include the highest quality Tahitian and South Sea pearls, making them an even more special bridal gift. Here are our top picks, and the type of bride they would be perfect for:
South Sea Pearl & Diamond Summer Ring
The South Sea pearl and diamond ring (at top left) is ideal for the traditional bride who values the inherent style of simplicity. The whopping ten millimeter South Sea white pearl is of superior quality with a very thick nacre and deep luster.
Tahitian Pearl & Diamond Eternity Ring
The Tahitian pearl and diamond eternity ring (shown at upper right) is a stylish stroke of genius in design. Three delicate diamond encrusted bands merge together to form a cradle for a gorgeous Tahitian black pearl. The eternity design is perfect for style savvy brides who love fashion and accessories.
South Sea Pearl & Diamond Blossom Ring
Girly girls who love all things floral and sweet will fall head over heels for the South Sea pearl and diamond blossom ring, shown at left. The design is exquisitely feminine with delicate diamond encrusted, stylized petals and a diamond covered solid white gold band.
