Fabric and Pearl Necklaces Add Color
Fabric is a great way to bring in the other colors used in your wedding decor. Paired with pearls it is classic but also allows the DIY bride to personalize the wedding jewelry to match her chosen colors.
This Beaded Rose Necklace Tutorial from Sew Sweet Stitches is easy to make and adds just a touch of color.

A large piece like this for the bride and then a Beaded Rose Necklace... from the previous paragraph for all of the attendants would be a way to set the bride a part from the rest of the party while still having jewelry that is similar in look.
The Custom Made Pearl Necklace from the Martha Stewart Website looks simple but sophisticated. It would add a little something extra if you could add ribbon from the bridal partys floral bouquets to the necklace.
