Romantic Jewelry at BHLDN



In my final review of BHLDN, Anthropologies new bridal destination, I will share thoughts on just a few of the many unique and romantic pieces that  make perfect finishing touches to wedding day garments – whether for the bride or her lovely maids. 


The charming Frozen Rock necklace by Dana Kellin (above) is one of my favorites.  I see this as a timeless treasure that would become a signature piece in a woman’s collection - worn on both special and everyday occasions (and always carrying memories of her wedding day).  

Also love these whimsy little charmers – “Cascading Earrings” from Lee Angel.  Great for the girl that wants to add a little fun to her classic look.   




I couldn't agree more with the description of the “Tussled Necklace” by Lee Angel on the site: “ We think the put-together look is a bit, well, stuffy.  Throw on these tangled strands over your dress for a bit of glamorous dishevelment.”

In true Anthropologie style, this is an unconventional classic and will add interest and volume to any bridal gown.

BHLDN is chalk full of pretty earrings.  What I love about these hand-set crystal hoops is their simplicity of imperfection.  They are “hand-hammered” giving them a little bit of a crooked appearance.  The Crystal Fob Drops are the perfect dainty size and are ideal for special occasion dressing.

And how about the retro-glam styling of the “Bygone Earrings” by Lee Angel?  I love the understated drama that they radiate.  These should be worn with pulled back hair so you don’t miss a second of them.   The Galore Earrings have a vibrant Indian inspiration with beautiful turquoise beading mixed with crystal and glass beads.  I think they would be a great color compliment to a bridal gown, but also perfect for bridesmaids.

Love the super-cute “Oui” ring with little floral accent.  Just one of those little things that commemorate the special day.  Bracelets are often a forgotten touch, but I adore this silk based, neutral toned crystal piece of loveliness from GB Couture by Emily & Ashley.  The sheer chiffon tie makes it adjustable for all wrist sizes. 


I am definitely a brooch lover and I simply can’t take my eyes off of this one.  The “Twinkling Agate Brooch” by Anton Huenis is composed of natural elements so the color and shape of the stones will vary slightly.  That said, the design is such a statement piece and adds the perfect amount of fancy to special occasion or any feminine classic dressing.  

BHLDN sure has a fan in me - I hope you all like it too.  Brides-to-be are lucky to have this amazing new resource of choices to create their perfect wedding day look.
