Pearls with a twist

Jewelry & Accessories, MD, DC and VA

There's something so traditionally bridal about a strand of pearls. I love how Trish Thackston Designs, based in Alexandria, Va., has updated the simple pearl necklace in her bridal collection. The aptly-named "Pearl Opulence" necklace contains over 150 freshwater pearls and would look just lovely with a simple strapless gown. Also check out the "Colette" collection with twists on the standard pearl earring. Trish's jewelry also makes great bridesmaid gifts. Visit for more information on Trish Thackston's collection. —Kim Forrest, Assistant Editor, Brides Local Magazines
