You may have seen the recent Chicago wedding of Jen Schefft (who did her time on both "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette") splashed across the pages of Us Weekly. If so, you saw that the local girl chose Chicago jewelry designer Erin Gallagher to create looks for both the bride and her bridesmaids for the big day. In honor of this historic occasion, Gallagher is hosting a bridal bling sale.
Schefft chose the "Becca," a freshwater pearl bracelet, and the "Kristen," a double-strand faux pearl bracelet, to complement her Carolina Herrera gown (OK, yes, we have an Us Weekly subscription). Both styles will be offered at 25 percent off, along with the rest of Gallagher's collection, on both the designer's Web site (enter the code BridalBling) and in her West Loop boutique (1017 W. Lake St., 312-492-7548) from Thursday, June 11 through Monday, June 22.
Gallagher's looks feature streamlined designs starring both semiprecious and precious gems in simple, stunning settings. You can also create your own custom pieces, choosing stones, chains and metals for one-of-a-kind earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Because you know what they say: When you finally find "The One," you stick with it.
