Brides say Yes! to Patty Tobin Bridal Jewelry
February 22, 2012  |  Get The Look

It’s that time of year! With March rapidly approaching, wedding season will soon be in full gear. While Patty Tobin does bridal jewelry all year round, spring and summer is the time we find ourselves in high demand. Whether it’s a necklace, a pair of earrings or a bracelet for the bride, something for mothers, or matching sets for your bridesmaids, we are always happy to work one-on-one with brides to find the perfect accessories for the big day.

Bride (Ashley) wearing Patty Tobin pearl neclace and earrings at her weddingLast week, Ashley walked down the aisle wearing one of our favorite bridal pieces: a delicate three-strand freshwater pearl and 14K gold necklace that sits lightly right along the base of the neck above the clavicle with a simple single pearl drop earring to match. Ashley came in unsure of exactly what she wanted – maybe a bracelet, maybe a necklace or maybe just a pair of earrings – but looking for something that was classic, elegant, and not too “blingy.”

Like many brides, she was having a hard time finding something that was “just right” and within her budget. As you start to look, many brides will likely find that a lot of “bridal jewelry” is costume with lots of rhinestone action and sparkle. While that look totally can work for some, there are those looking for something a little more special that they can hold on to, wear again and one day pass onto their children.  That is why so many come to us to design something especially for them with real pearls, real gemstones and precious metals. Every bride is different, which is why we enjoy working with each one individually.

(Moms always love to find something special for their outfit when they come in looking with their daughters and we couldn’t be happier to oblige.)

Bridesmaids’ jewelry is another fun element that we love to design. Working with your wedding colors is such a great opportunity to incorporate any number of semiprecious gemstones or colored crystals. We may be a little bias here, but as far as we’re concerned there’s nothing that makes a better gift for your bridesmaids than a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Beautiful bridesmaids

Take for instance one of our recent brides, Elizabeth. She had five close friends in her bridal party, all of whom had been extremely helpful and involved in all the various planning stages of her wedding, and she really wanted to give them something very special as a thank you that they could wear again. Together with Liz, we designed a beautiful matching necklace and earring set using a deep red faceted garnet and 18K vermeil chain that complimented their cabernet shade chiffon dresses. The girls looked stunning and we’re so thrilled with their gifts they wrote to us to tell us so.

If you are a bride to be and are interested in designing something custom for your wedding day, you can call 212.414.0174 to set up a private appointment with the designer in our NYC store, or just stop in and talk to a member of our staff who will be more than happy to help.
