#1: Multi-Strand Pearl Bracelet
First up is a multi-strand chunky pearl bracelet with varying sizes of pearls (4mm, 6mm and 8mm). A silver chain finishes the piece and can be adjusted.
Why We Like It: If a necklace doesn’t work with your gown’s neckline, a bracelet is an easy way to tie in the look. The varying pearl sizes combines both a traditional and modern look.
