Top Four Bridal Jewelry Materials

Brides always tell us that they want their jewelry to be “perfect” and choosing the right material is often a good first step. Here are our top four picks for beautiful bridal jewelry materials.

Cubic Zirconia 

If you’re looking for a fine jewelry look without the price tag, consider cubic zirconia bridal jewelry. We believe these high quality stones are the next best thing to diamonds! They provide the subtle sparkle many brides are looking for and give a formality to your look.


Like cubic zirconia, crystal bridal jewelry gives off a moderate amount of sparkle. These pieces photograph well and are very affordable. Crystals can be dressed up or down and look great for most any bridal look you’re creating from ultra formal to rustic elegance.


Women have worn pearl bridal jewelry for centuries as a symbol of purity and perfection. Pearls look fabulous when combined with other materials such as crystals or cubic zirconia. Many of our pearl pieces are available in our colored pearl collection. With more than 35 different pearl colors to choose these are the perfect choice for bridesmaids.


If a bit of glitz is what you’re after, these mirrored stones are the perfect choice for serious sparkle. Many dresses and veils are set with rhinestones, so choosing rhinestones in your jewelry or hair accessories will pull your look together.

More Tips 

Most of these materials mix and match beautifully. In fact, many of our pieces combine pearls with crystals, pearls with cubic zirconia, and pearls with rhinestones, so much of the work is done for you. The general fashion rule is to choose a material that is going to be consistent with your look, from your hair accessory to your shoes. If you have pearls sewn into your gown, then selecting a pearl combination is an obvious choice. A crystal embellished veil is best along side earrings and a bracelet with crystal or cubic zirconia components. Also consider the formality and total look of your wedding. A strand of pearls may be perfect for most occasions, but jewelry with a lot of bling might be out of place. There are so many bridal looks and styles today, so finding the perfect bridal jewelry and accessories to fit your look will be easy and fun to do for you and your entire bridal party.

To all of you, from all of us at AnnaBellagio - Thank you and Enjoy Your Special Day!
