How to Save on Your Wedding Jewelry

"Everyone knows that celebrities can get 'loaners' for big red carpet occasions. Now so can brides," says Gonzalez. Several sites have popped up that rent jewelry by the day or week for a fraction of the value.

adorn.com: "If diamonds, statement necklaces and earrings are your thing, this the site to go to,” says Gonzalez. “Did you love Kate Middleton's earrings? You can rent [the identical look] for $160 against an $8,000 purchase price.”

saricloset.com: "If you are looking for something more unusual in the costume jewelry department, take a look at saricloset.com, where you can rent and buy amazing, costume bangles, earrings and necklaces that get noticed," she says.
