Looking for a great necklace that will go with your dress as well as be perfectly wearable with your more usual attire? Want to lavish a little something on your bridesmaids, or perhaps your mom? Then take a look at the fab handiwork of Turq Bridal.
Partners Lee Addison and Katherine Weeks worked together as graphic designers before launching their jewelry business. Here's what their hookup has produced: Amazing pearl and mother-of-pearl jewelry in classic forms, updated with sparkles of color or unique shapes. Some pieces are statements, others are simple—but it's all beautiful.
Designs are named after Lee and Katherine's friends; I love the Hilary line's necklaces, with chunky pearls in cream, slate, platinum and champagne, and the Penelope collection's multi-colored strands are to die for. The site helpfully suggests other pieces to go with the ones you're currently slavering over. But the cherry on top is the jewelry bag in custom colors—brides monogram these to personalize their gifts to their maids, and bridesmaids often give their bride a monogrammed lingerie bag for the honeymoon packed with goodies. —from our Local Scout Atlanta blogger Melissa Diskin
