Bridal Jewelry and Gown Matching

Choosing the Perfect Bridal Jewelry for My Gown

You’ve found the gown you’ve always dreamed of wearing on your wedding day, and now you’re ready to put the final touches together to make your bridal look complete. No matter how beautiful a piece of jewelry is, if it doesn’t match the neckline or style of the gown, it may never look quite right. It is important to understand the connection between bridal jewelry and gown matching to ensure a beautiful look that is flattering on your special day. Check out these foolproof examples to help you choose the perfect bridal jewelry types for your dress.

strapless

Strapless

Fashion Fact: An extremely versatile neckline and the most popular gown style, this style gives you lots of options for bridal jewelry types to choose from. The goal with this style is to play up the neckline with dazzling necklaces. If you choose to go bare or simple on the neckline, you definitely want to play up the earrings instead.

Top Choices

  • Choker
  • Princess
  • Statement
  • Y-Drop or Pendant
  • Back Dangle
  • Bracelet
  •   or
  • Statement Earrings & Bracelet
 
sweetheart

Sweetheart

Fashion Fact: A sweetheart neckline may or may not be strapless, but the same rules apply when choosing a necklace. Again, you want to play up the neckline or the ear area with this type of cut. Make sure you choose to highlight one or the other but not both to avoid going overboard.

Top Choices

  • Choker
  • Princess
  • Statement
  • Y-Drop or Pendant
  • Back Dangle
  • Bracelet
  •   or
  • Statement Earring & Bracelet
 
Jewel

Jewel And High Neck

Fashion Fact: With this high rounded neckline, choose a necklace that is longer in length. This will help to elongate the area while adding some elegance to what might otherwise appear rather plain or get overlooked for other details.

Top Choices

  • Matinee
  • Opera
  • Statement
  •   or
  • Statement Earring & Bracelet 
 

Halter

Fashion Fact: A low or wide cut dress will allow for a necklace but if the halter is high and narrow or comes to the top of the throat, go without. A better way to add extra elegance to this cut is to choose a beautiful pair of earrings and wear your hair in an updo to draw attention, or select a stunning cocktail ring for subtle grace.

Top Choices

  • Y-Drop
  • Pendant
  • Statement

  • Statement Earring & Bracelet 
 

Bateau

Fashion Fact: This neckline covers you up on top, so you want to go the opposite with a long necklace. Of course, you can forgo the necklace altogether and opt to play up other areas with a statement bracelet paired with a bold ring. Make sure you match the two pieces together and wear one piece per hand to avoid being gaudy.

Portrait and Of The Shoulder

Fashion Fact: Much like the strapless gown, many styles look great with this style neckline. When choosing the type of necklace best suited to this dress type, you should also consider how you intend to wear your hair on the big day. If you are wearing it up, go for bolder accessories. If you are wearing it down, keep the accessories more on the simple side.

Asymmetrical and One Shoulder

Fashion Fact: Sometimes, when it comes to bridal jewelry and gown matching, it is best to know when to skip the accessories. For instance, a necklace with this style is not generally a good idea. The symmetric lines of the neckline clash with the gown and create unflattering results. For this cut of dress, play up other areas such as adding a beautiful hair clip or a stunning ring.

Top Choices

  • Earrings
  • Bracelet
 

Elizabethan or Queen Anne

Fashion Fact: Our advice is to skip the necklace and let your neckline steal the show with its striking high collar. If you feel too naked without some sort of accessory to accompany you down the aisle, pair this dress cut with a beautiful pair of earrings, a statement bracelet, or a bold ring.

Top Choices

  • Earrings
  • Bracelet
 

Square

Fashion Fact: Strong right angles define this neckline which plays a role in which shape of necklace is most beneficial to this cut. A rounded necklace will soften the lines while adding extra elegance to your look. You can also pair it with a beautiful pair of earrings but make sure any geometric shapes found in one area are present throughout the other accessories for a unified look.

Top Choices

  • Choker
  • Princess
  •   or
  • Statement Earring & Bracelet 
 

V Neck

Fashion Fact: Choose a necklace that imitates the lines of the dress. If it is cut high, look for more delicate designs as to not crowd the neckline. A rounded necklace would take away from this style. Make sure any pairings are similar in shape to avoid clashing. For instance, do not pair rounded earrings with a square necklace as it will clash overall, especially when considering the outline of the dress itself.
