Wedding Jewelry – How to Pick Jewelry to Match your Gown

You have found the perfect dress, you’ve decided on the colors for your wedding, tasted cakes, picked out the perfect bridesmaids dresses….now its time for bridal jewelry! Finding the perfect jewelry to go with your beautiful gown is like adding the icing to the cake! And we’re here to help!

Know Your Colors

Believe it or not, different shades of white will work better with different types of jewelry.

White Gown: White gowns work best with pearl and sterling silver jewelry. While beautiful, gold embellishments may clash with a bright white hue.

Diamond-white Gown: You can pretty much do anything in terms of jewelry with a diamond-white gown. Go ahead and pick your absolute favorite! Whether it be gold, silver, rose gold or pearls, you can’t go wrong.

Ivory Gown: Ivory gowns are a soft, light white and can sometimes have a bit of a yellow undertone. You should go for gold jewelry – this will highlight the creamy tint of the fabric.

Consider the Neckline

The neckline style of your gown can play a huge role in choosing the ideal jewelry for your wedding day.

Sweetheart or Strapless: You can basically do anything you want with a sweetheart or strapless neckline.

Choose an accent necklace paired with simple studs.

Or try the opposite, put the focus on your earrings by going with a larger option like chandelier earrings and pair with a simpler necklace – or even no necklace at all if you dare to be bare!

V-neck: Gowns with a V-neck give you the perfect opportunity for wearing a beautiful necklace and earring combo.

Try an elegant, thin and dangling jewelry combo:

If you’re going for more of a royal look, a crystal choker with matching earrings could be the perfect combo – think Lady Di

Halter or Reverse Halter: This neckline can give you some trouble if you had your heart set on wearing a necklace. Your safest bet in terms of jewelry is to go with a pair of stand-out earrings and a can’t miss bracelet to ensure you sparkle like a bride should:


If you still don’t think you can walk down that aisle without any jewelry adorning your neck, try something simple that won’t compete for too much of your gown’s attention:
