For the traditional bride, a Something Blue Backdrop Necklace from Two Be Wed Jewelry is a new way to display and honor this long standing wedding custom.
The backless bridal gown is a seemingly never ending trend which inspired Noelle to create a jewelry piece that attaches to the back of a necklace and gracefully hangs down a bride’s back.
“Backless gowns create an expanse of jewelry real estate that just needs to be filled. This is the most perfect, gorgeous way to accessorize a backless bridal gown,” Noelle said while participating in her last bridal show in Phoenix. “It just hit me right there in my booth, what my next collection needed. For my next backdrop necklace collection, I’m adding in a blue element to keep with tradition.”
Two Be Wed Jewelry is excited to announce one of the new Something Blue Back Necklaces will be seen in the November issue of Brides Magazine. A bridal jewelry designer since 2008, Noelle decided in 2011 to branch off to specialize in backdrop necklaces, a jewelry niche that the main bridal jewelry industry had not seen much of. Since then, her more glamorous designs have been worn to the Oscars, Miss America Pageants and have adorned the backs of countless prom-goers and brides around the world.
“Jewelry is the finishing touch that completes a look. The popularity of backless wedding and formal gowns that designers and brides everywhere are favoring, present wonderful fashion opportunities for brides to express their unique sense of style with backdrop jewelry that is modern, elegant and traditional all at the same time,” Noelle says. “Your exit should be as memorable as your entrance.”
Noelle Kostraba is ready to launch her second back necklace collection. The Something Blue Collection consists of 10 of her signature best selling backdrop designs with the bottom pearl or crystal in blue. Lately, her clientele has been requesting longer backdrops as the backs of the bridal gowns are getting lower so there will be 3 available lengths. The additional blue detail makes these heirloom quality backdrops really something special, to be handed down to future brides as a family keepsake. Every piece is handmade by Noelle with exceptional quality materials such as Swarovski and Czech crystals and Swarovski pearls. Only solid sterling silver and gold filled metals meet Noelle’s design standards.
