Selecting the perfect wedding jewelry can be difficult.
The jewelry you choose is an important element of your bridal look. The right piece can enhance your overall appearance, adding a touch of sparkle and elegance. Masina Diamonds has created a guide for you to follow when it’s time to shop for your wedding jewelry. Here are some tips to help you choose the best jewelry to wear with your wedding dress:
Consider the Dress Neckline
The neckline of your wedding dress plays a significant role in determining the type of jewelry that will best complement it. For a strapless or sweetheart neckline, consider a statement necklace that sits just below the collarbone. If your dress has a V-neckline, opt for a delicate pendant, lariat necklace, or tennis necklace to accentuate the neckline's shape. For high necklines or halter styles, consider skipping a necklace and focus on earrings and bracelets instead.
Coordinate with the Dress Embellishments
If your wedding dress features intricate embellishments like beading, lace, or pearls, select jewelry that compliments these details. For example, if your dress has pearl accents, consider pearl earrings or a pearl bracelet to tie the look together.
Keep it Balanced
Avoid overwhelming your bridal look with too much jewelry. If your dress is heavily adorned with details, opt for simpler and more understated jewelry to create a balanced and elegant look. On the other hand, if your dress is relatively simple, you can experiment with more elaborate and eye-catching pieces.
Try Before the Big Day
Before your wedding day, try on your jewelry with your dress to ensure that everything complements each other seamlessly. This will give you the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments and ensure that you feel confident and beautiful on your special day.
Things to consider when choosing your wedding jewelry:
Let the Dress Speak for Itself
Remember, the goal is to enhance your natural beauty and highlight the details of your wedding dress. By carefully selecting jewelry that compliments your dress and reflects your personal style, you'll create a stunning and memorable bridal look that shines as bright as your love on your wedding day. Don’t overdo it, don’t overthink it–the dress is the star, not the jewelry.
That Old Saying…
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Take inspiration from this old adage. Consider jewelry from family, close friends. Incorporate sentimental pieces of jewelry, such as heirloom pieces or accessories gifted by loved ones, to add an extra touch of significance to your bridal ensemble. For something blue, look at pieces with sapphire, blue topaz, aquamarine, or other blue gemstones.
One For the Books
Make it a sentimental piece. One of our jewelry experts recalled their experience with customers as well as family members; so many would get a piece that looked beautiful, but that’s all it was to them. Consider getting a piece that you’re proud of wearing and can pass on to others. Continue the tradition and create “something old” and close to you, so you may have something to give to the next bride in your life.
We trust that you picked your wedding dress to best show your personality, body, and feelings towards your wedding day. What jewelry you choose is important, but how and why you choose the pieces you do are things to deeply consider.
