The style of the wedding dress will usually dictate the brides jewelry although customs, traditions and personal taste play a big role also. Your jewelry selection should complement your dress and not be a distraction. Bridal jewelry usually consists of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets and tiaras. Of course not every bride will wear all this jewelry. The combination that is right for you will depend on your personal style and the style of your wedding dress.
Usually, the more simple the wedding gown is the more ornate or elaborate the jewelry could be. This could mean a larger, more dramatic necklace or a strand of colored gemstones. A simple wedding gown is also perfectly suited to simple jewelry such as diamonds and pearls.
Wedding dresses that boast tremendous detailing, beadwork and other embellishments are usually best paired with simple, monochromatic jewelry. This works perfectly to highlight the details of the dress.
Take into consideration your headpiece when selecting earrings. If you are wearing a veil, ensure your earrings will show well and won’t get caught in the fabric.
Although anklets aren't overly popular right now they are still well suited to some brides and to their style of dress. If you decide to wear an anklet, ensure it is a smooth finish that will not get caught in the fabric of your dress.
With so many choices, adding personality through jewelry has never been easier.
From the very traditional pearls your grandmother may have worn to contemporary colors and styles - pearls have been a mainstay in weddings for many years. Freshwater pearls have been dyed many colors but pink remain a popular choice for wedding day jewelry.
The perfect brides jewelry should be something that looks magnificent on your wedding day, holds special meaning and is priced within your budget.
Many brides will wear their bridal jewelry for special occasions throughout their lifetime - in particular on their wedding anniversaries. When you purchase quality pieces they will last for many years and will become treasures for your family.
