****THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Thanks to all that entered!****

Oh MAN I am excited for this afternoon’s giveaway!! A while back I did an inspiration piece on brides with chunky necklaces and that post continues to get a ton of hits all the time. Possibly because statement jewelry can REALLY spice up a bridal or bridesmaids look.

So for today, I am thrilled to announce that we have Stella & Dot here to not only share some serious statement jewelry inspiration, but also giveaway a Love Bracelet & a $50 gift certificate to one lucky commenter!! Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. Giveaway closes Friday, 5 April 2013.

Plain Jane…meet Stella & Dot: Statement Jewelry for the Modern Bride, Bridesmaids & Wedding Guests!

Wedding dresses cost more than a honeymoon these days! So how can a bride create a unique look when she wants to wear a less intricate dress? Jewelry! A statement necklace can instantly turn a $50 dress into a one-of-a-kind presentation.

Stella & Dot specializes in statement pieces, and half of our line is always under $50. Here are some ideas on how to jazz up a low cost dress just by adding stunning jewelry.

Vintage Lace

This white maxi dress is a great weekend dress with flip flops…or add a birdcage veil, some vintage-inspired pieces from Stella & Dot, and it’s a wedding dress! These lace pieces were created from actual lace designs found in our Chief Creative Officer’s grandfather’s lace factory. (Whew! Say that 5 times fast.)

Casual Chic

This dress is as comfortable as a t-shirt. Add an easy-to-wear bib necklace and instantly transform your look. This would be so modern with a fascinator and a bouquet full of white blooms and greenery. Some Naval Academy brides have worn a similar piece, the Bahari Necklace, in their weddings to match the Navy Blues!

Breezy Blooms

Inspired by antique brooches, the Dot Bloom Necklace instantly creates a wow factor. Add it to this easy breezy dress and you’re ready for your bridal photos.

Garden Wedding

Give your garden wedding a creative touch by adding a pop of color to your springy dress, like the green from the La Jolie shown here. Stack eclectic bracelets from antique shops, add a flower in your hair and a birdcage veil, and you’re ready to walk down the aisle!

It’s also widely reported that the Royal Family stole their love of fascinators from Jocelyn.


  1. i absolutely love the green necklace – as a girl who loves black and white, I think it gives the perfect pop of color to accessorize the dress shown.

  2. Not sure if my first comment went through…but I love the Jolie necklace and can’t wait for the summer line to debut.
