Tips for planning the perfect bridal jewelry
Step 1 - Consider the neckline of your gown
When choosing jewelry for your wedding day, it is best to select pieces that will compliment your gown without distracting from it in any way. Custom Designed jewelry can make it easier to accent the unique features of your gown perfectly. Sometimes less is more.
Step 2 - Consider your hair style
When choosing an earring style, you will want to consider the hair style you have chosen for your wedding day. If you’re wearing your hair up or have a short style, then you'll look best in drop or chandelier earrings. On the other hand, if your hair is long and left down, smaller earrings like pearl studs or short drops may look best and won’t get tangled in your hair.
General Bridal Jewelry Tips
Heavily Beaded Gowns: Many gowns are embellished with crystals and/or pearls and similar jewelry will be a beautiful compliment. But if your dress is heavily beaded near the neckline consider a more classic, simple necklace or forgo the necklace and add sparkle with elaborate earrings and a bracelet instead.
Watches: Should be avoided by the bride.
Color: A bride can choose to add a splash of color in her earrings, necklace or hair accessories
Swatches: Bring fabric swatches of your gown and bridesmaid dresses along when selecting your jewelry. Samples of beading are also helpful. Pearls and Crystals come in many shades and colors.
Create a Family Heirloom: Start the tradition in your family with some Bridal pieces you can pass on for generations to come. Classic pieces that are crafted with quality elements such as pearls, Swarovski crystals and silver or gold findings are best for this tradition.
