jewelry opinions

What do you think of this necklace and earrings for jewelry and possibly my something blue? The necklace is blue topaz with a small diamond, and 18K white gold. The matching earrings are also blue topaz and 18K white gold. They're really pricey though.. like a few hundred dollars. sorry about the crappy cell phone picture quality. =)

Ooooh, I love the necklace. It totally matches the earrings in the 2nd picture. For a while, I thought you were going to buy the earrings from the first picture and I was like: "Eeeeewwww... those earrings look so outdated!

I love the idea of using blue topaz as your something blue. A decent quality Topaz has a nice sparkle to it because of the cut and clarity of the stone (the same C's apply!). So with a simple design, a little sparkle and color would be perfect! :) Are the stones attached using a wire-wrap? (i'm assuming so but it's kinda hard to tell from the pic) If so, the price does seem a little high... I might see if you can negotiate a little of the "retail" price or wait out a sale.

That very pretty. I think I might go with just the necklace though. I checked on bluenile.com and the price seems a bit high, because some of the necklaces on there were a little over a hundred (not hundreds).

I think it might be a little too simple to go with your dress. For the amount of money, I would rather spend it towards something else? Plus you can borrow some jewelry as your something borrowed.

Mmm.. I dunno. Blue one to match white/off-white wedding gown? A little odd, but all right if you really like it.

Personally, with your dress, I imagine something more romantic and classic, perhaps with pearls. I prefer the one that Soon2BWilcox picked out. It has both pearls and the "something blue" if you want to incorporate that. For your wedding colors, I would pick something a bit more classic, but that is just me. Another way to incorporate the blue is to have it hidden in your dress, i.e. a tag with your name and wedding date?? The dress bustle strings beneath the dress (that is what I did). Or a blue garter?? But if you absolutely LOVE it, you HAVE TO GO FOR IT!!

haha, I thought you were talking about the earrings in the 1st picture too! LOL. good thing I scrolled down before commenting. :D They're pretty, but price seems high for what it is. Also, since blue isn't your color, I agree with deeinthenola that the hidden blue may be better. I also picture something more classic with your dress - either crystals or pearls or both.

I agree with Citybride and deeinthenola. I think the style of the necklace and earrings are pretty contemporary and simple for the style of your dress and other things in your wedding. I do think that the necklace and earrings are very pretty, but not my first pick for your Wedding Day. I looked at your bio again to refresh my memory of your dress. There, I saw a beautiful pair of earrings in the style I imagine for your big day. A necklace to coordinate with that would be perfect!

If you do go with these, I would suggest choosing one or the other.
