You’ve got the perfect guy, picked out the perfect dress for your perfect day, all that is left is picking out your perfect finishing touches! You might think that your wedding dress is the star of the show, but your wedding day jewelry can completely elevate your look and bring more of your personality forward.
You might be overwhelmed with the choices you can choose from, so make sure you check out our 14 Karat gold jewelry specialist’s style tips first for picking out your perfect wedding jewelry.
1. Think about your neckline
The neckline of your dress can influence your jewelry choices in a big way. If you have a sweetheart neckline or a strapless dress, a statement necklace, or a diamond pendant could be the perfect compliment. However, if your dream dress has a halter or illusion neckline it might be best to skip the necklace. This can be a great opportunity to rock a pair of statement earrings so that they do not clash with your neckline. If you’re really missing the glam and embellishment of a necklace, some designers encourage the use of a sparkly belt instead.
2. Keep it simple
While one of this year’s summer jewelry trends is layered necklaces, your wedding day might not be the best time to try that particular trend. You want to make sure that your jewelry enhances your look instead of taking away from it. It’s a balancing act of finding a dress and jewelry piece that work together. Some good classic pieces that can be good to fall back on are pearl jewelry pieces, solitaire diamond studs or necklaces and simple 14 karat gold diamond bracelets.
3. Match your metals
While there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to mixing metals, many brides prefer to stick to one type for their wedding day jewelry. Can’t decide between 14 karat gold pieces or more silver toned ones? Take inspiration from your dress again! If your gown is white, then silver tones will look the prettiest. Ivory and champagne colored dresses tend to fare better with gold pieces as their compliments. If you have chosen a blush colored dress, then why not look toward rose-gold pieces? They would coordinate beautifully with your soft pink gown.
4. Less is more
The “less is more” concept applies in two ways. The first way is that you do not want to overwhelm your wedding look with too much jewelry itself. Try to stick to a few pieces that are going to make you look your very best. The second way is through the color of your jewelry. Many brides choose to go the colorless route with diamonds, or stick to a white and cream theme with pearls. However, if you want to rock blue sapphire jewelry, there’s nothing stopping you! Many designers recommend sticking to only one other color, instead of mixing all the colors of the rainbow together as it can look messy and not as well put together for your big day.
5. Be yourself
Really, the only rule that matters is to be yourself. Your wedding day is all about you and the love that you have with your special someone, and you can wear whatever you want and makes you feel the most comfortable. Picking out the perfect wedding jewelry truly comes down to what you think looks the best!
