How to Match Your Bridal Jewelry to Your Wedding Theme
Selecting fine jewelry to wear on your wedding day can seem like a daunting process. You've probably considered styles that complement your engagement ring and wedding dress, but have you remembered the wedding theme? It’s likely that your dress is already suited to the style of wedding, whether it’s a casual outdoor affair or a more formal style, but you want your jewelry to fit the theme, too.
Be Vibrant in Vintage Designs
If your wedding is inspired by the exuberance of the Art Deco period, or your decorations are characterized by 1940s flair, you may want to infuse your jewelry style with designs and motifs from the same era. Bold geometric diamond earrings and bezel-set diamond chains conjure flapper girl glamour.
Cushion-cut diamond halo studs are the perfect vintage finish to your look, with their softened corners and pillow silhouette.
Celebrate Colorful Love
Depending on the color palette you chose for your wedding, it could be a stunning way to coordinate your jewelry with the theme. For a winter theme of red and gold, consider rubies set in halos of traditional yellow gold. For spring, try vivid green emeralds or sunny yellow sapphires.
If you wear a gemstone engagement ring, think about incorporating its color into your wedding’s palette even before you start shopping for complementary jewelry styles.
Be Radiant in Classic Pearls
For a formal wedding with a white or black-tie dress code, pearls are always a timeless choice. Their natural luster and flattering radiance allows pearl jewelry to bathe the wearer in a gorgeous glow – perfect for brides wanting to look at their best. A layered pearl and pave diamond bracelet, or a pair of teardrop pearl and diamond statement earrings is the ideal finishing touch to an evening wedding look.
Pearl jewelry is an equally gorgeous choice for beach weddings, despite the much more casual tone. A simple pearl necklace complements the location’s natural beauty, and emphasizes the astonishing process that results in each pearl used to create the piece of jewelry.
Whatever your choice of wedding location and color palette, it is important to feel like your bridal jewelry look is in keeping with the tone and motifs of the day. Each element should reflect you and your partner’s tastes, celebrating what's important to you as a couple.
