Wedding jewellery incorporates everything from the engagement ring, wedding rings and of course the necklace, bracelet and earrings that bride will wear with her dress.
What about the superstition about wearing Pearls?
There are two theories on this. One states that the Greeks believed the pearl would promote marital harmony and prevent newlywed brides from crying. The other states the exact opposite – that it will cause tears within the marriage.
If you need more convincing – Queen Elizabeth II wore pearls on her wedding day and it hasn’t done her much harm.
Picking the correct jewellery for your dress
Jewellery for Strapless Dress – the choker, pendant and multi strand illusion necklace all work well with a strapless dress. Team it with delicate earrings and a pretty single or multi strand bracelet.
Jewellery for One Shoulder Dress – this dress shouldn’t have a necklace. Instead choose a stunning cuff bracelet and a great pair of earrings.
Jewellery for Halterneck Dress – this is a tricky one to team up, but a halterneck dress looks great with a pendant or y-drop necklace. If the back is exposed then go for a necklace with a back dangle or lariat.
Jewellery for Open Back
Dress – the lariat is a great way to add the final detail to show off your beautiful wedding gown. A bridal lariat is a necklace that the bride wears around her neck like a normal necklace. However, the back of the neck will have a longer dangling piece of jewelry to finish off the look. The back drop necklace is a real head turner.
Jewellery for V Neck Dress – the best option is the Y-drop necklace as it follows the shape of the “V” shape. Both swarovski crystals and pearls look great.
Jewellery for Sweetheart Dress – this neckline can take either a classic round necklace, choker, pendant or y- drop. Teamed with matching bracelet and earrings that reflect the heart theme will complete the look.
Jewellery for Off the Shoulder Dress – this neckline lends itself to a classic round necklace or a choker. Classic pearls with a hint of swarovski crystals will look great. A delicate bracelet with dangle earrings will make this look complete.
Jewellery for Scoop Neck Dress – the classic round necklace or a simple pendant works well with this neckline. Earrings can be bold or delicate, teamed with a delicate bracelet or cuff.
