Today’s modern brides often select pearl, diamond, cubic zirconia crystal or gemstone wedding necklace and earring sets. Whatever you select, make sure your necklace and earrings do not overpower but compliment your gown. White wedding dresses work best with silver tone settings, ivory dresses work best with gold tone settings - and rose gold is gaining in popularity. Of course, though this is your wedding day, and rules are meant to be broken. Whatever jewelry you select – make sure it is what makes you feel the most special on your day.
It is often said that the accessories and jewelry you select complete your outfit and add subtle sophistication to your ensemble. Even some fashion conscious people will select their jewelry and accessories before they pick their outfits for the day – accessories are that important! But before you select your wedding jewelry and accessories, you should consider not only the type of wedding gown you will be wearing, but also your hairstyle, veil and formality of your wedding.
For centuries, brides have worn pearls as symbols of purity and beauty. In ancient Rome, pearls were important symbols o wealth and social standing. In ancient Greece, pearls were associated with love, marriage and beauty.
