Tips for Selecting the Perfect Bridal Earrings

Weddings require a lot of decisions, especially for the bride. Once the wedding dress shopping is complete and you’ve selected your dream dress, it’s time for the icing on the cake! Time to find just the right bridal jewelry to wear on your big day. We recommend keeping these tips in mind when shopping for bridal jewelry:

Consider the Hairstyle 

When it comes to wedding hairstyles and wedding hair accessories, every bride is different. Some might prefer for their hair to be pulled back, while others opt to wear their half up or entirely down in flowing waves. Weather you’re wearing your hair up or down it’s important to consider how much of a statement you’d like to make and how much you’d like your jewelry to show in photos.  For example, a classic stud style paired with an up-do will provide a beautiful peek of sparkle for photos but if you’re wearing your hair down you might miss them.

Find Just the Right Color Match for Your Gown

Consider your gown and if there are any rhinestones, metals, or pearls in it.  You’ll want to find jewelry with matching metal tones and stones that are in the same color family.  You may also want your jewelry to match your wedding rings and select silver or gold metal accents in your earrings to reflect that.  If you’re not sure which route to take an easy rule of thumb is that a classic white gown pairs well with platinum or silver earrings. Both ivory and champagne wedding gowns go beautifully with touches of gold. A blush-colored wedding dress will look beautiful with rose gold accents.

It’s All About the Neckline

April’s first question when consulting with brides is to see a photo of the bride in her gown so she can see the neckline on the dress. Wedding dresses come in many styles and the neckline is one of the first things to consider when selecting earrings. Strapless or sweetheart style wedding gowns are ideal for earrings that are longer in length and we work closely with our brides to find a pendant shape that fits beautifully with their face shape. Wedding dresses that have a plunging neckline or v-neck offer a good amount of flexibility, where you can let the neckline be the center of attention and go with a small stud, or glam it up with a chandelier style.  If a bride is sporting a gown with a high neckline a statement stud earring is always a great option.

Choose Earrings That Reflect Your Style

It’s your day to feel beautiful, elegant, and glamorous, but you also want to look in the mirror and see a reflection of your own personality and style.  There’s nothing wrong with wearing a little more sparkle than you normally would, but never feel like you need to go over the top to achieve a look that simply doesn’t feel authentically you.  We’ve designed everything from giant emerald green stunners for a bride to wear with a simple chic white dress to teeny tiny Mini Crystal Clusters for a bride who rarely wore jewelry and wanted just a touch of sparkle.  Today is all about you so make sure you find just the right accessories to make it feel that way.
