How to Pick the Perfect Jewelry to Complement Your Wedding Dress Neckline
This guide will help you put together a bridal look suited to your own style.
You’ve found your dream dress! Now you have to decide what accessories will best complement your dress on the big day. Wonder no more! Here is your guide to selecting jewelry for three of the most popular wedding dress necklines:
For the Strapless Dress with a Straight Neckline
If you have a strapless wedding dress, adorn that décolletage with a beautiful statement piece. A large necklace will create visual interest. We’re loving this beautiful four-strand cultured pearl necklace—it’s a timeless classic (and a piece you can wear again). Since you’re going with a bolder necklace, keep your earrings more subtle, like this matching pair of freshwater pearl solitaires. Remember, as a general rule, the less adornment your dress has, the more spectacular you can make your jewelry.
For the Sweetheart Neckline
If you’ve chosen a sweetheart neckline, that perfect heart shape will pair perfectly with a drop necklace that treads the line between delicate and bold. This oval diamond drop necklace is the perfect example! With a less prominent necklace comes the opportunity to play up your earrings a little more. A pair of dangly sparklers would be a beautiful choice.
For the V-Neck Dress
You’ve got less space to work with, so a v-neck demands the most delicate necklace of all: a solitaire pendant that falls in a perfect ‘v’ shape. Of course, just because this necklace is smaller doesn’t mean it can’t be a beautiful focal point of your wedding day look. Consider a pendant with serious sparkle or maybe even a pendant featuring a less common wedding jewelry color such as rose gold (which would be spectacular with an off-white dress, by the way). And as you’ve probably guessed, wearing a delicate necklace allows for some pretty spectacular earrings, like these rose gold and white sapphire ones that feature intricate filigree.
