Selecting your Wedding Day Jewelry

Your wedding day jewelry can help set the mood for your wedding and enhance the overall look and feel of your gown. When selecting your wedding day jewelry, think about whether modern jewelry, vintage jewelry, or classic jewelry styles will work best with your wedding dress. Then consider the elements of your wedding and decide if the pieces you like will evoke the mood or look you want to create for your wedding.

Set the mood of your wedding

The style of your wedding can help narrow down your bridal jewelry choices. Will you get married during the day or at night? Is it a big event or intimate affair? Popular options for different types of weddings include:    

Glamorous weddings : You can get away with bolder, and perhaps glitzier, wedding jewelry and accessories at large, black-tie, or nighttime weddings.

Simple, elegant weddings: If you have a romantic lacy dress, simple jewelry styles and vintage jewelry pieces could work for you. Heart lockets or brooches can also help you create an antique feel. To create an elegant, timeless affair, look toward classic jewelry pieces such as strands of pearls and diamond earrings.    

Laid-back beach weddings: A simple strand of pearls and some flowers in your hair can set the tone for an early afternoon ceremony on the beach.   

Cultural weddings: Different cultures have different traditions and customs that can guide your jewelry choices. For example, Irish brides may choose to wear a piece of jewelry featuring a Celtic knot or Claddaugh design. Asian brides commonly wear jade, a symbol of good luck, health, and prosperity.

Your bridal jewelry can also complement your wedding's color theme. For example, simple and understated bridal jewelry can offset bright, vibrant flowers, candles, and linens. On the other hand, an emerald necklace or ruby drop earrings can provide attractive contrast to single hues and neutral colors.

Complement your gown with bridal jewelry

A pure white dress looks terrific with primary color choices. If you plan to don white on the big day and feel like wearing blue sapphires or red rubies, do it. If you choose a simple dress, then big, bold jewelry, even colored gemstones, could look fabulous. When you select the type and length of your necklace and earrings, make sure they look good with the neckline of your dress.

Necklaces for V-neck dresses: The necklace should fall about halfway between the base of the neck and the point of the V.    

Necklaces for strapless dresses: A strapless dress looks lovely with a close-to-the-neck choker.    

Versatile necklaces: A classic 14- to 16-inch choker will work well with just about any dress.

You can generally choose simple and understated earrings if you have a bold necklace and vice versa. If you have a simple neckline, consider chandelier earrings.
