    My wonderful husband and I got married a little over 2 weeks ago! I feel so fortunate to be married to my favorite person in the world...and really happy to get settled back into normal life after all the wedding and minimoon festivities!

    Click here for our epic proposal story and video, as well as lots of engagement ring photos: https://www.pricescope.com/communit...-the-omc-cluster-and-man-of-my-dreams.238116/

    Obviously, jewels were my priority when it came to my wedding day fashion! I got an amazing deal on my dress and put those funds toward jewelry instead!

    First, my new (but old) married lady stack!!!! My wedding band is the plain one in the middle. It's platinum, 2mm, midcentury vintage with sweet milgrain on the edges. We had it engraved inside with out initials and wedding date and I love that it's simple and stackable! The floral band was a great Art Deco find that we bought on our minimoon in New Orleans right after the wedding! I had a blast browsing the antique jewelry stores on Royal Street and every time I look at this band, I'm reminded on the amazing week we had there!

    This vintage 1940s Hamilton 14k and diamond watch was my major gift to myself. I feel so glamorous when I wear it and have worn it to a few events since the wedding too!

    I wore this OEC filigree
    brooch in my hair and Victorian OMC cluster dormeuse earrings.

    And on my right hand, I wore an 18k garnet cluster ring that I inherited from my great grandmother. We were both January babies and I have so many memories of her wearing this ring. She lived to be 101 years old, so I was very lucky to have been able to spend a lot of time with her! I loved the way the garnets mirrored the deep burgundy flowers in my bouquet!

    And now just one more of my dress and my gorgeous bridesmaids and bridesman :kiss2:

    You made a beautiful bride and the pieces you wore only highlighted that! I love the sentimentality behind the garnet ring....your great-grandma was there with you! Congrats and best wishes for many years of happiness!

    Thank you so much MakingThe Grade!

    Those really are the most important things, aren't they! Thank you so much for your well wishes!

    Thanks so much Mamabean! I feel like I really hit the jackpot.


    Thank you asscherhalo_lover!!!

    Thanks you so much yennyfire! I'm such a sap when it comes to jewelry...probably one of the reasons my collection becomes more vintage-focussed by the day. Those jewels have such a story to tell.

    You are so sweet, hypermom! I'm blushing! There's nothing more beautifying than genuine happiness!

    Thank you for sharing the pictures of your day. You looked exquisite and your party, too.

    Your jewels are gorgeous and the beauty of the meaning behind your great grandmother's ring is wonderful. 101 years!

    This is exactly what I think jewels are for, to be worn everyday and special occasions, to mark significant events and to celebrate significant people. Clearly, you are wearing these jewels. They are not wearing you. And you've made them part of your life, and that feels wonderful for even a stranger reading about it across the vast expanse of the internet. Congratulations on your wedding and your new life together, and may you have many more jewels to commemorate even more significant milestones to come.
