A Real Gem
The pearl is an absolutely beautiful gemstone that symbolizes classic style and a refined taste.

Consider giving your bridesmaids pearl jewelry and be sure to use them as a part of your decorations. Faux pearls are very easy to find and incredibly affordable. They’ll look amazing throughout your reception. The wedding cake is another shining example of using “pearls” to decorate. See what your baker can do with this classic accent.
