Prettiest Thing in Our Office This Week: A Beaded Garter

garter

Gorgeous fashion accessories, flower arrangements, wedding cakes and stationery cross our desks every day here in our New York City office. In “Prettiest Thing in Our Office This Week,” we’ll take you behind the scenes and show you our favorite item each Friday.

It may not be one of your most highly visible accessories, but your garter — if you’re going along with this bridal tradition — is still an important one. We loved this jeweled peach garter sent to us from La Gartier (LaGartier.com) that’s just as pretty as a sash or clutch you’d wear outside your gown. This designer specializes in custom-made garters that are created to each client’s specifications, and they can include anything from the intricate beading on this garter to feathers, vintage brooches, grosgrain ribbon and pearls.
