Bridal jewelry and accessories to match outfits.
There is always time to accessorize your outfits with bridal jewelry. It is a busy time when you are getting married. But there is always time to look your best.
A piece of bridal jewelry is not simply an accessory it is a reflection of you. And little satisfies like being able to make that purchase knowing it is money well spent. Here are some tips for looking sensational.
Go for Gold.
Metallics are both festive and fashionable. Whether it is a silk blouse paired with trousers or an all-over sequined dress in bronze, silver or gold. Sparkle and shine doesn’t need a lot of accessorizing. It can make an outfit look too busy. Instead wear one fantastic piece such as a gold mesh cuff with diamond closure or an oversize yellow diamond ring. Pictured right.
Evening attire is all about texture. Silk, satin, velvet, lace and fur make even the simplest silhouette look luxurious. But careful not to overdo it with accessories. Wearing a fur capelet to keep warm? Use a jeweled brooch to keep it closed or pin the brooch in your hair.
For a softer style. A look for empire waistlines. Full skirts or anything with ribbons and lace. Concentrate on the earrings. Delicate enamel flowers surround diamonds and other precious gems. Or for something a little more traditional such as the South Sea pearl and Tahitian diamond stiletto earrings. Pictured above.
The Little Black Dress.
A wardrobe staple. It is elegant and understated. This is a great opportunity to go big with a large cuff bracelet. If the neckline will allow make a statement with a multi-strand diamond necklace with delicately feminine bow or add a splash of color with floating diamonds and floral-pattern jewels. If your dress is red diamonds and pearls are a good choice.
Wear with Everything.
The cocktail ring with oversize stones think three carats in any color. Ruby. Amethyst. Emerald or sapphire. They can stand alone or make an even bigger statement when surrounded by diamonds. Pictured right.
Heirloom Pieces nice mix with bridal jewelry.
Diamond pendants in yellow or white gold are simple enough to wear every day yet exquisite enough to be family heirlooms. They can be set with any size diamond. Customize a pair of earrings to match like yellow and white diamond studs pictured left. Set in any size diamond in removable jackets that are available in a variety of stones such as pink or blue sapphire. Tips courtesy www.serliandsiroan.com.
