How To Pick The Perfect Wedding Jewelry

Congratulations! You’ve found the one, you have the perfect dress, and now your wedding date is inching closer and closer. With the perfect dress and engagement ring in hand, it’s time to accessorize! It may seem daunting to have yet another wedding decision to make, but picking out your wedding jewelry can be fun and sentimental. Don’t stress about matching Pinterest trends or reinventing your wedding look, trust your instincts and ultimately choose what you love. If the idea still seems a little daunting to you, follow our tips and tricks for picking the perfect wedding jewelry for you.

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

It’s traditional in weddings to have four good luck charms (something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue) If this is a tradition you want to take part of, consider your something blue to be a piece of your jewelry. Adding a beautiful sapphire to your look will stand as the perfect ‘something blue’. Another gemstone that would work well is a blue topaz. This gem is lighter in color than a sapphire and has a brighter hue.

Pay Attention To Your Hairstyle

The hairstyle you choose to pair with your dress can have an impact on what kind of jewelry works best with your look, especially earrings. An updo provides a lot of options for jewelry. Having your hair pulled away from your face clears way for lots of earring options. Statement studs or a bold hoop are just some to choose from. In addition, an updo provides opportunity to wear some hair jewelry. Hair jewelry can add glamour and sparkle to your look, but make sure it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the jewelry.

If you choose to go to with a beautiful down do, you may need to add a bit more thought to your jewelry. Because a down do can hide your earrings, choosing diamond studs may be your best option. However, if you’d like to wear longer earrings, we suggest going with an earring that is longer and can sparkle through your hair.

Less Is More

When it comes to wedding jewelry there are so many big and beautiful options to choose from. It may be tempting to want to stack on all the marvelous pieces, but remember you should be the focus on your wedding day, not your jewelry. In order to refrain from over accessorizing, bring your jewelry with you to your final dress fittings. This way you can put everything together before the wedding to make sure its just right.

Match Necklace To Neckline

Arguably one of the most important things to note when picking your wedding jewelry is the neckline of your dress. You always want your jewelry to work harmoniously with your dress, complimenting it not overpowering it. Think of your jewelry being used to cover pieces of skin the dress does’t touch. If your dress has a strapless neckline, we suggest a chocker or shorter necklace to pair with it. This will help keep your looked balanced. If your dress has a drop-V neckline, we suggest a pendant or drop necklace to fit well with the deep V created by the dress. Lastly, If your dress has a high neckline we suggest potentially skipping out on the necklace and going for a bolder earring.

Switch It Up At The Reception

If you’re looking for something fun to shake up your wedding look, consider switching things up for the reception! Whether you’re switching dresses or not, changing your jewelry can provide a fun way to change your look from wedding to after party. Whether you’re wearing a long sleeved dress and want to add bangles or a high neckline and want to throw on a statement necklace, changing your jewelry can be a great way to switch up your look without breaking the bank with a new dress.
