How much did you spend on your wedding jewelry?

This was just something I was thinking about last night. I was previously engaged, and this was back when my mom was able to help pay for wedding stuff, and she took me jewelry shopping and we ended up spending almost $4000 for necklace, bracelet, and two pairs of earrings. Ridiculous I know! I knew...

This was just something I was thinking about last night. I was previously engaged, and this was back when my mom was able to help pay for wedding stuff, and she took me jewelry shopping and we ended up spending almost $4000 for necklace, bracelet, and two pairs of earrings. Ridiculous I know! I knew in my head how frivolous it was to spend that much on something like that, but my mom had no objection in the world so I just went for it. And then when that engagement fell apart we tried to sell it, with no luck. I ended up having to pawn it and only got back $1800. So what is a more realistic amount to spend? I'm trying to get a budget in my head and this is one thing I'm unsure of. IDK if I could set the budget at $500 or $100...all I know is I definately am not going to be so frivolous this time...but I still want to look nice ya know?

What did you ladies pay for jewelry? What kind of materials? Real or fake? Just curuious.

Thanks!
