The most important rule when it comes to shopping for your bridal jewelry is that less is more! The second most important is choosing your jewelry according to your wedding dress neckline.
You’ve already gone through the tough part of choosing your wedding dress and now it’s time to consider the last touches. When coming to choosing the jewelry you must put into consideration your hairstyle, veil, shoes, gerb, and the style of the dress with its fabrication and adornments.
Just like hairstyles jewelry depends on the type of neckline of the gown. In this article, we have gathered several jewelry types to suit different wedding dress necklines.
Search for your dress’s neckline to find the jewelry that best suits it:
• Statement Earrings
You can a bit of drama with a clean strapless gown. Remember those statement earrings will always draw attention to the face.
• Choker or collar-length necklace:
You could wear a choker or a collar-length necklace with either a matching earring or simple studs.
• Statement Necklace
Statement necklaces are a bit tricky. However, if worn right they are absolutely exquisite. Make sure that your dress’s fabric is simple if you’re opting for this option. No extravagant headpiece or earrings or hairstyle either!
• Drop earrings or studs
The high-neck means that there is already a lot going on in the neckline area which means no necklaces. Instead, go for diamond or pearl studs. You can also go with not so big drop earrings.
• Simple earrings or studs
In the case of a one-shoulder gown, the neckline naturally draws attention to the collarbone and so don’t tangle it too much with a necklace. Go with simple earrings, studs, or drop earrings with this one.
With boat necklines, you must go simple. Go with a smaller necklace with either a solitaire diamond or pearl. You can skip the necklace and wear colorful studs or drop earrings.
• Matching necklace and earrings
Again we must stress that less is more with bridal jewelry. With scoop necklines try wearing a simple choker with matching stud earrings.
• Drop earrings
Other than this option you can go with drop earrings and drop the necklace altogether.
• Choker with studs
Go simple with a choker and matching studs.
• Earrings with movement
Skip the necklace and choose a sparkly earring instead.
• A set of pearls
Wear a set of pearls with matching earrings.
Choose a simple pendant with a drop pearl or diamond and a matching stud earring or ring.
