 If we look back to the 1980s, we see faux pearl bridal jewelry as the dominant wedding day jewelry for the walk down the aisle.  Since then rhinestone has seen quite a drop in price and as it became more affordable, it increased in popularity for brides.  While this happened, faux pearl jewelry became scarcer.  Well, some manufacturers recognized the void in the market and reintroduced traditional looks in faux pearl jewelry, which is quickly catching on again.  

FAUX PEARL BRIDAL JEWELRY

 

 The traditional faux pearl jewelry is plastic pearl pearlized with a quality coating that provides nearly the same luster as the real thing.  The most familiar bridal sets in faux pearl are a single strand of pearls with a drop in the center, matched with earrings that usually copy the drop.  Length is usually adjustable and numerous choices in design are available with the drop changing the look. Is there any more popular design than a pendant of faux pearl surrounded by small crystals? 

HAND-KNOTTED FAUX PEARL NECKLACES

 

 Hand-knotted pearls carry bridal jewelry to an even more realistic look.  Each faux pearl is separated by a knot the same way genuine pearls are strung.  Usually these are single strands of pearl that provide simple elegance indistinguishable from the real thing. 

GLASS PEARL BRIDAL JEWELRY

 

 

 Glass pearls offer a quality option with weight that clearly separates the bridal jewelry from plastic pearl.  Glass pearl provides the same luster and is often provides pearl jewelry ideal for the mother of the bride.  Glass pearl necklace sets also make wonderful church accessories or necklace sets for special events like teas or dining out. 

ABS PEARL JEWELRY

 ABS pearl was practically an unknown that is gaining popularity today.  Still, consumers may see pearl advertised as ABS, but have no idea what it is.  The letters stand for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, which is sometimes called ABS polymer.  It is a thermoplastic with impact resistance and a flawless shiny finish.  ABS is capable of injection molding, which enables the production of beads that many say are very close to the finish of real pearls. We are receiving ABS pearl soon to be available to our customer base. 

FRESHWATER PEARLS

 

 Freshwater pearl is genuine pearl that usually has irregular shapes and various colors.  They are often farmed using freshwater mussels with each mussel producing 24 to 32 freshwater pearls at a time.  That makes freshwater pearls far more abundant for jewelry making than cultivated pearls.  Bridal jewelry in freshwater pearl adds perceivable value to the accessories for the wedding day, but cost is also higher, which can be a burden with all the expense a modern day wedding calls for. 

BRIDAL EARRINGS

 

 Most of the time, bridal jewelry brings to mind the necklace and earring sets worn on the wedding day.  But sometimes the bridal gown does not accommodate a necklace so earrings provide the jewelry for the special day.  Brides that choose faux pearl earrings usually prefer modest size and a realistic look for the wedding day jewelry.  Classic post earrings or modest drop earrings provide elegance in moderate to understated size.  Earrings with domed faux pearl in crystal-laden frames are the utmost in classic design and please today’s brides with a timeless look. 

BRIDAL BRACELETS

 

 Finally, bridal bracelets are all the more important in the 21st century when bracelets are dominating the runways and show up in every fashion magazine.  In bridal jewelry bracelets need the utmost of elegance and what delivers it better than pearl. 

Every type of pearl we have covered contributes to this category.  Faux pearl in designs that include rhinestone are very popular and these can be single strand or five strands wide. 

Glass pearl, freshwater pearl, and ABS pearl can all provide glamorous bracelets for the special day.  Bracelets are also wonderful bridesmaid gifts so this part of your formal accessories can generate multiple sales. 

Prepare for a resurgence of faux pearl bridal jewelry by mixing the design in your wedding accessories.  Thumb through a bridal magazine and you will see the renaissance of faux pearl bridal jewelry.
