Tips to Pick the Ideal Jewelry for Your Wedding Look

After choosing your wedding gown and the veil, it’s time to choose the jewelry pieces that will perfectly complete your look on the biggest day of your life. Although you might have a style in mind, you should be aware that your gown has a say in this process and you should make sure to choose the right jewelry that will enhance its beauty.

Therefore, here are some tips that will guide your way!

1 – The first rule to take into consideration is that less is more. Keep things simple and avoid exaggerating with your jewelry set.

2 – Pay attention to the color combinations. If your dress is snow white, opt for white gold or platinum, while an ivory or off-white dress looks splendid with yellow gold jewelry. You should also take into consideration the details of your dress, as one with silver details calls for white gold jewelry even if it’s ivory. And if your dress is ornamented with pearls, choose matching jewelry with a touch of diamonds. 

3 – Consider the cut of your dress when choosing your jewelry. If your dress is backless, you can easily pull off a back sautoir that will make you a truly modern and stylish bride. However, if your dress is supplied with a high collar, stick to a pair of earrings that stand midway between richly ornamented and simple. And if you would rather choose ear studs in this case, you can treat yourself to a tiara or a headpiece that will take your look to the next level. If you are wearing a strapless dress, make sure to pick a richly ornamented necklace to fill the amount of skin showing. Also be aware that you won’t need a bracelet or a watch if you are wearing a long-sleeved wedding dress.

4 – Choose jewelry pieces that complement the style of your gown. If your gown is classic, your jewelry should be of the same style, while modern wedding dresses call for statement pieces that complement them.

5 – Match your gems. Yes, if your earrings feature sapphires, let it be the case of all the pieces of your set. The same applies to diamonds, pearls or any other precious stones you may choose.

6 – Respect your own style. Yes, choosing the perfect jewelry pieces is like choosing your wedding gown. The pieces should perfectly match your personality and stay true to your own taste.

7 – Try on the jewelry pieces before purchasing them. Even if the groom and his parents are the ones who will offer you the jewelry set, you should try it on before you give your approval because you will surely not have the time to deal with such surprises in the last minute. Wear a shirt with almost the same neckline as your dress and make sure that they fit well together.
