Pairing her gorgeous feminine lace wedding gowns from her Romantique Collection, with western attire, complete with cowboy boots, black cowboy hats, lariats and a western belt or two, the presentation provided a fun & refreshing look, as well as endorsed the current wedding day theme of barn yard weddings. Of course in our eyes, there was one perfect detail missing:  jewelry. Turquoise or Native American inspired jewelry is definitely the finishing touch this look requires. See below for our ideas pairing these gowns with authentic Native American jewelry and some of our fabulous jewelry collections from Sorrelli.

Authentic Native American Turquoise jewelry completes the wester look of these gowns.

Native American jewelry, especially designs from the Navajo Indians, offer absolutely fantastic statement rings and cuffs created with turquoise, coral, jet and mother of pearl stones set in sterling silver.

The plunging "V" necklines in these dresses beg for a statement necklace or layers of necklaces that  complement the neckline of the gown, or a stunning chandelier earring as a finishing touch.

A lace bodice with a high neckline calls out for fantastic earrings to complete your look no matter what your wedding day style.  A statement necklace can also be layered over the lace to add sparkle, color and claim your unique style.  Of course, you don’t want the necklace to interfere with the beauty of the gown.  A bold necklace that is in contrast to the fabric will enhance the gown and take your look from ordinary to extraordinary.

Stunning, colorful chandelier earrings add the finishing detail to a lace bodice with a high neckline.  The ruby gems paired with turquoise is a unique look that provides extra color and stays true to the western theme.

A simple pendant, statement necklace or jewels that follow the shape of the neckline layered over lace can create a stunning look.  Turquoise paired with black never fails to be a winning combination.
