How To Choose The Perfect Bridal Jewelry
Jewelry can be a difficult choice for many brides. With so many options for jewelry and so many decisions to make on the big day, sticking to a few general rules really helps make the experience enjoyable. Bridal jewelry should not be overwhelming and should match the style of the bridal gown. If the gown is very elaborate, the jewelry should be simple. Exposed skin calls for more jewels, while a more concealed dress may only need earrings. It’s important to have a starting point, because every necklace does not go with every bridal dress. The bridal gown is going to be a distinct color, neckline, and style that determines the overall look, and helps the bride choose her jewelry accordingly
Different metals look better with different shades of white. Though this may seem subtle, matching the colors improves the bride’s look. If a bride is wearing a white gown, silver, platinum, and pearls are great go-tos. Diamond white is very versatile. Be sure to match the types of jewels and metals with the gown and jewelry. Nothing looks worse than a mismatch of jewel tones and metals. Mirroring the neckline of a gown is a great rule of thumb for choosing bridal jewelry. A sweetheart or a V-shaped neckline is accentuated by a pendent necklace. Conversely, if a bride chooses a higher neckline gown, a necklace is not often a great choice. A bride can choose to accessorize with a headpiece or chandelier earrings. However, it is essential not to overdo accessories, but to accentuate a dress with bridal jewelry.
Each gown has an overall style, a point in time, or a fashion by which it is inspired. Take note that the style of the gown should be in alignment with the characteristics of the jewelry. Having a sense of union between the jewelry and the dress improves the bride’s look. There should be coherence between the look of the bride and the theme of the wedding. Know your themes and do not hesitate to incorporate aspects of the bride’s style into other details of the wedding. After all, the dress should be a reflection of the bride; therefore, the theme of the wedding is a cohesive image.
