5 Tips for Bringing Color to Your Wedding Jewelry

As a bride, putting together your complete look is high on the list of priorities. You want a look that is all you, and will get a great reaction from your groom and guests.

Once you have picked your dress, it’s time to accessorize! A wedding dress is the perfect blank canvas, so take advantage and express your unique style with colorful and unique wedding jewelry.

Here are some tips on how to tastefully bring some color to your wedding day look with your jewelry:

Choose Your Metal

First, you need to decide what metal you want to use.

A bright white dress goes great with silver or white gold. The warmer tones of an ivory dress work best with yellow gold. If you have a champagne colored dress, the pink undertones will pair beautifully with yellow or rose gold.

If your engagement ring doesn’t quite match your chosen metal, don’t worry. Your ring is a separate entity, and does not need to dictate the metal you choose for the rest of your jewelry.

Stick to One Statement Piece

When it comes to statement pieces, less is more! Go for one statement piece paired with more subtle pieces in the rest of your jewelry.

If you go for a statement necklace, complete your look with simple studs, a subtle hair clip, and delicate bracelets.

Keep your dress neckline in mind: A statement necklace pairs well with a straight neckline or strapless dress. If you have a v-neck dress, a pendant will fill in the negative space while still making a statement. A more delicate necklace will accentuate a flattering sweetheart neckline. Skip the necklace altogether with a halter or a one-shoulder look, opting for a different statement piece, such as earrings.

For large dangly earrings, you can wear any length veil and either thick or thin bracelets. No need to add a necklace, as the proximity could pull attention away from the earrings.

Gorgeous floral headpieces are very popular in many modern weddings. If you are going for this look, complete it with simple studs, a longer necklace (pearl looks great!), and delicate bracelets.

Lastly, if a jeweled headband is more your style, keep the rest of your jewelry subtle for a timeless wedding look.

Coordinate with Your Wedding Colors

Want to bring in some color? Choose gemstones that coordinate with your wedding palette.

Be sure to pay attention to warm and cool undertones to avoid clashing. You can also use the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses as inspiration.

Mix Borrowed or Old With New

If you choose to wear an heirloom piece, complement it with more modern pieces. Keep metal color the same, and try to keep stone cuts very similar for a cohesive look.

Something Blue

Incorporate your “something blue” into your wedding jewelry! There are a variety of beautiful blue hued stones. You are sure to find one that goes with your overall theme.

Choose from:

  • Sapphire
  • Blue topaz
  • Aquamarine
  • Turquoise
