pixkris: Wedding Day Smiles (Shiny!)
[personal profile] pixkris
Shallow fashion help needed!

I'm looking for a beautiful red pendant of some sort to wear with my wedding dress. The dress is strapless and rouched, so I'm looking for something relatively short (I don't think a choker, but maybe if it was the right one) and RED. I could go gemstone (ruby or garnet) or crystal or glass or something else, but I don't want it to be too small or too big (too small won't show up; too big will overwhelm my frame). I want it to pop, but I don't want to spend a fortune. Classy is good, but fun is too. Unique is a must! I'm carrying the red bouquet in the center of the top row of the "bouquets" page here. The dress is style #3966 on this page.

Caveats--I hate yellow gold and I'm very allergic to nickel, so cheap metals are out. I can usually do silver for a limited amount of time. White gold would be awesome.

Help a girl out? (Barb and Jilli, I'm especially looking at you, fashion goddesses!)

Here are a few things that piqued my interest so far:

clicky link #1 (too busy?)

clicky link #2 (but not brass or gold)

clicky link #3 (this is too long for the wedding dress, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!)

clicky link #4 (too simple?)

clicky link #5 (HA! Just kidding.)

Oooo! I love the keyhole heart (I hadn't planned to do a heart, but that's pretty cool). The filigree looks to be too long for my frame/dress, I think.

Also, did you see what I accidentally bought while browsing on esty? Oops. (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22126565&ref=sr_list_3&&ga_search_query=Steampunk&ga_search_type=category&category=jewelry.necklace&ga_page=5&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title)

I love the filigree and if the chain could be adjusted, I think it would look lovely with your dress.

Of your clickies, I really like No. 1 and No. 4, although I worry about 4 being too small, judging by the size in the picture of it resting in someone's palm.

I found this rough cut pendant (http://www.swarovski.com/Web_US/en/1031268/product/Galet_Bordeaux_Mini_Pendant.html?CatalogCategoryName=0109). It's currently strung on cord, but if you have a chain you like, you could restring it, I think.

Very symmetrical, simple flower (http://www.swarovski.com/Web_US/en/1035135/product/Hedge_Siam_Pendant.html?CatalogCategoryName=0109)

Not exactly what you were describing, but I think it's really striking and it's only 16" long: Inner Fire garnet necklace (http://www.sundancecatalog.com/PRODUCT/Jewelry/Necklaces/47380.html).

Here's a choker that falls under the nifty category (http://www.victoriantradingco.com/store/catalogimages/1a/i15754.html).

Might be too much... not sure (http://www.victoriantradingco.com/store/catalogimages/7g/i12279.html), but I think it's awfully elegant.

Perhaps under the fun category (http://www.1928.com/bella-rouge-ruby-red-charm-necklace.html).

I like the ribbons on this one. (http://www.1928.com/bella-rouge-ruby-red-pendant-necklace.html)

#3 does say they can modify the length of the chain...

I like your number 4 and barb's "Inner Fire" the best. But perhaps my sense is too simple for what you are looking for. But those are my favorites, fwiw

(I had to re-type favorite 5 times to get it right. And it's not a hard word!)

Everyone has such great options. I think I like #3 and fashionista's flower the best, but love a lot of other ones, too.

What's the actual date, again? (I am a bad friend with a brain of a sieve.)

Not a bad friend! Wedding itself is on the 5th, west coast reception is on the 23rd. Details on our wedding website: http://web.me.com/ktaylor9/Site/Home.html

Thanks, Kristin. I wish I could make it to the West Coast reception. I'll even be in CA that month, but earlier, farther North, and completely busy with family. I'm sure it will be wonderful, though, and more importantly, that your life together will be.
