Your wedding day is one of the most significant moments of your life. You want everything to be perfect but also sentimental in every way possible. Personalizing your bridal look is essential for making the day extra special. Having a "something blue" is a great way to incorporate a family heirloom or a cherished gift from a loved one. Or, maybe you’ve decided to wear a dress, veil, or accessory like a hairpiece, pendant, or earrings from your mother or grandmother. Another great way to make your bridal look one-of-a-kind? Wearing a piece of jewelry with your birthstone. If you don’t care for your own or want to add a different color into the mix, go for it! You can opt to wear you fiancé’s birthstone as a romantic gesture or that of a loved one to honor them in a thoughtful way.

If you love the idea of wearing birthstone jewelry on your wedding day, it’s important to be discerning with your selection—certain birthstone pieces can skew cheesy. Delicate pieces are the ideal, especially if your birthstone is rich in color and you don’t want it to take away from a bridal white palette. A teensy ring, fine chain necklace, or barely-there studs are all subtle options to consider. Injecting color is, of course, a welcome choice too. A drop earring or unique necklace with more saturated gemstones are gorgeous for bolder brides.

If your birthstone is a diamond, pearl, or opal, lucky you! All three are impeccable choices for bridal jewelry. To make a modern statement, opt for an unexpected piece like asymmetrical earrings or a necklace with your stone set slightly off-kilter. The effect is undeniably fresh.

Gemstones range in price—some stones are more precious and rare than others—but smaller, delicate pieces often come with more affordable price tags. The best part is that wearing your birthstone will feel incredibly special and become a memento of your wedding day long after the ceremony. You can treasure it forever and eventually pass it on to a family member down the line. We love a sentimental opportunity like that.

Whether you’re looking to wear your own birthstone or your fiancé’s, or are simply in the mood for a gorgeous piece of gemstone jewelry, we’ve edited a stunning selection ahead that’s elegant for your wedding day and beyond.
