One-of-a-Kind Charleston Brides

Charleston has always been an incredible place to get married, but in recent years, it has become THE wedding destination of choice, even for Charleston girls! We love selling to brides, especially our one-of-a-kind vintage – it means a lot to know we’ve contributed to such a special day. Check out these two fabulous Charleston Brides in some of our vintage jewels. Ginny had a beautiful wedding at Boone Hall Plantation wearing one of our delicate, vintage 1940’s rhinestone bracelets (photos by Juliet Elizabeth Photography):

And Stella looked stunning in our vintage deco tassel earrings and complementary vintage necklace:

Her beach wedding was at Castle Mugdock and they even raised the pirate flag!  Love the combination of glamour and adventure!

From a plantation to a castle, congratulations to two beautiful Charleston brides!
