What Jewelry to Wear with a Wedding Dress

There are countless options when it comes to picking out the perfect jewelry for a wedding dress; you can choose a look that is classic, glamorous, posh, contemporary, vintage…the possibilities are endless! So where do you begin? This guide can help you decide which wedding day jewelry is right for you.

Less is More

Beautiful Bride

One important thing to remember when choosing your wedding day jewelry is: less is more. Many traditional wedding dresses are already detailed to perfection by the designer, so try not to overshadow your incredible gown with too many accessories! Here is a quick guide to keeping things simple and stylish when you choose your wedding dress jewelry.

Dress Color

White Wedding Dress

If you are opting for a traditional white wedding gown, the sunny and vibrant hues of yellow gold can sometimes clash with a perfectly white dress. For these reasons, the most attractive and complementary jewelry to accompany your white dress may be white gold, platinum, pearl and diamond.

Ivory Dress

Since the color ivory is comprised of white with subtle yellow undertones, this would be an appropriate color dress to pair with your yellow gold jewelry, which will look stunning as they further accentuate the undertones in your dress.

Diamond-White Dress

This color is off-white, and is perhaps the most versatile when it comes to jewelry pairings. Yellow gold, white gold, platinum, and rose gold would all be appropriate and lovely options, here.

Non-Traditional Color Dress

If you are opting for a non-traditional dress in a color other than white, it is likely that you already have a vision for your wedding day look. Once you have decided on the color of your gown, use the rules of the color wheel to find complementary colors that would make lovely accessories.


Another important factor to consider when choosing the right jewelry for your wedding dress is the neckline of your dress.

Strapless or Sweetheart

Perhaps the most popular wedding dress style is a strapless gown. Stand out with a statement necklace that will look fabulous, while accentuating your neck and shoulders. Some brides prefer to skip a necklace and give full attention to their dress. In this case, consider a pair of long, dramatic chandelier earrings< /> or linear earrings.

Deep V-Neck

A deep-V neckline sets the stage for a magnificent necklace. Try on a pendant necklace, lariat pull-through design, or chic choker. If you have a special necklace that has been passed down in your family, or given to you as a meaningful gift, this is a wonderful opportunity put it on display.


Since a halter neckline takes the place of a necklace, add a chic pair of drop earrings or a stunning diamond tennis bracelet to your wedding day look.
