5 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Jewelry
With the many details involved when planning a wedding, you may overlook the wedding jewelry that tops off the overall aesthetic of your ceremony. Like the decorations on the cake, it takes something that is already spectacular (you) and accentuates it, making everyone turn their heads.
But wedding jewelry shopping can often feel overwhelming and is put off to be a last-minute addition. To help relieve some of that stress, follow the tips below to make your special day even more perfect.
Match Your Jewelry to Your Dress
Choosing your dress is a whole process, and there’s nothing like the feeling that rushes over you when you’ve found the one. The best wedding jewelry complements your dress and doesn’t take away from its original splendor.
If you’ve chosen a simple design, you can add jewelry with a bolder flair to enhance your final look. Conversely, if you’ve chosen the kind of dress that requires a small team to keep the train pristine, jewelry that softly complements your bold dress is the ideal choice that will give you that extra sparkle.
Color matters, too. Both your dress and the metal of your jewelry should complement each other. Off-white and ivory dresses work best with warmer metal colors like rose gold and yellow gold. On the other hand, bright white dresses can be accentuated by cooler colors found in metals like platinum and white gold.
Make Sure Your Jewelry Complements Your Neckline
Your dress’s neckline determines the type of jewelry to wear. If, for example, your wedding dress has a v-neck, you can wear a long pendant or choker to adorn your chest along with dangling earrings. For a bolder look, pair the pendant and choker together, like with the 14k Gold Layered Necklace.
Gold Diamond Halo Studs are powerful in their simplicity and can be the idyllic accompaniment for an ornate neckline. If your dress has a high neckline, you can opt to make your earrings the statement piece (think chandelier style earrings) and skip the necklace altogether.
Ditch Trends, Make It Yours
There’s always a hot trend to follow and there are always going to be different opinions about what looks best on you. Drown all that outlook at yourself in the mirror and choose the wedding jewelry that makes you feel say, “Yes, this is it.”
If you don’t get that feeling when you’re looking at an online jewelry store, keep searching. You’ll find the perfect pieces, like the Gold Diamond Bar and Paper Clip Bracelet, that not only give you an ethereal glow on your wedding day but that you can use on future occasions, as quiet reminders of the day you wed your beloved.
Keep It Flexible for the Reception
Any statement pieces you incorporate into the ceremony don’t have to stay on for the reception. You can switch it up to give yourself a different look and continue the party as a married woman.
If you choose to keep your wedding dress on for the reception, a simple change of jewelry can subtly alter your appearance. If you choose an entirely different dress for the reception, matching jewelry can effortlessly complement the new look.
Only Buy from the Best
