Inspired by Kate Middleton, Brides Choose Classic Jewelry                                          

 Ever since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle at WestminsterAbbey in her fabulous fitted gown and crystal teardrop earrings, brides everywhere have been emulating her classic,elegant style.

 Fashion jewelry leader CAROLEE quickly named its popular version of the earring “The Kate” — and at $32 it’s within reach of elegant brides in every price range.Throughout 2011, brides from Kate Middleton to Hollywoodcelebrities chose very classic styling fortheir jewelry,” said Jill Maier, Vice President of Design at CAROLEE. “We’re with them on that level, and we have an extensive collection of beautiful designer crystal and pearl bridal jewelry to suit the tastes of today’s discerning brides.”Ms. Maier has these tips for brides who want to look royal — British or American style:

- Choose crystal and pearl styles that are distinctive yet not overwhelming in scale

- Balance the proportions of your earrings and necklace. If your earrings and necklace “match,” keep them close in size with each other. Or if you choose major chandelier earrings, scale down your necklace or don’t wear one and make the wrist a focal point.

- Bracelets are an important bridal accessory, and they look great worn in multiples — stacks of crystal bangles, mixes of decorative floral pearl and crystal links, or a combination of bangles and links.
