How to Pick Jewelry to Match Your Gown

Even small weddings can take months of preparation. From coordinating with the wedding party to interviewing caterers to choosing the gown, getting ready for your special day is practically a full time job in itself. When it’s time to choose the jewelry to match your wedding dress, you’ll love the convenience of selecting everything you need under one roof.

At F. Silverman Jewelers, we offer fine jewelry for brides, bridesmaids, and wedding guests. Choose from our extensive collection of diamond earrings, exquisite necklaces, bracelets, and so much more.

Be yourself when choosing wedding jewelry

Your wedding dress may be the fanciest outfit you’ll ever wear, but this doesn’t mean you have to overdo your look. Sometimes, wearing less is more. Instead of focusing on quantity, choose high-quality pieces that complement your dress perfectly. And don’t forget to let your own unique style and personality guide your decisions. You should feel comfortable with the choices you make. Some brides may feel perfectly at ease wearing chandelier earrings, while others might prefer simple diamond studs or diamond drop earrings.

Choose the right hues for your jewelry

White is traditional for wedding gowns, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of your jewelry must conform. If you do choose a white wedding dress, complement it with jewelry that features platinum or silver components. In contrast, gold components look best when matched to ivory wedding gowns.

These days, many brides are skipping traditional white and ivory hues, and opting for lightly colored wedding dresses instead. If your wedding dress is the warm shade of champagne, you can use either gold or burnished silver jewelry to complement it. Blush wedding gowns look lovely paired with rose gold.

Consider your wedding gown’s neckline

The jeweler you work with may ask about the neckline of your wedding gown. This is because it will play a crucial role in determining the best necklace for you. Chokers look great with strapless wedding gowns, and you can choose a classic pendant for a V-neck. Halter and reverse halter necklines are already visually “busy” in that area, so instead of a necklace, focus on eye-catching earrings and hair accessories.

When in doubt, stick with classic wedding jewelry looks

If you still can’t quite make up your mind about which jewelry to match to your wedding gown, it may be best to opt with classic looks. Choose timeless diamond earrings and, for a vintage look, a graceful strand of pearls.
