Your wedding dress and necklace should complement each other, which is why it’s a good idea to wait until after you find a gown to secure a jewelry.
Here are some tips for choosing the perfect necklace for your wedding dress:
1. Based on Your Neckline
For a strapless gown, bolder necklaces are recommended, like a collar, choker, or multi-strand piece. Since more of your collarbone and shoulders are showing, your accessory will allow you to make a statement without detracting from your gown. This also applies to off-the-shoulder dresses.
For a V-neck silhouette, keep things simple with a small pendant. Gowns with sweetheart necklines also pair well with pendant jewelries, which have a similar drop as the sweetheart shape.
If opting to sport a gown with a high neckline, it may forgo wearing a necklace.
2. Based on Your Dress Style
If your gown is embellished with gems or pearls, match those embellishments with your necklace. For example, opt for a pearl jewelry if there are pearls on your gown and a diamond accessory if your look is embellished with crystals.
3. Start by picking a metal
Your most common metals are going to be yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, and sterling silver. Opt for the metal that goes nicely with your gown, especially if it’s embellished. Additionally, think about the other accessories you want to wear. If your headpiece has silver and pearls, for example, you might want to stick with that theme.
4. Avoid too many colors
A coloured gemstone can look really beautiful on your necklace, but you may want to avoid anything too bold or colourful. With a white dress, something too multi-coloured may clash.
5. Buy a necklace that matches your earrings
If you can’t find a matching set, you may want to try and keep your earrings and necklace similar. Only mix metals if you’re comfortable with it, and if not, stick to the same metal and similar embellishments. You can also opt for statement earrings and a delicate necklace, or vice versa (two statement pieces may distract from the gown).
