When it comes to wedding day jewelry it’s not that size doesn’t matter but rather that it is done tastefully and elegantly. After all your pictures will last a lifetime. Let’s take a quick look at some of the today’s newest trends for wedding day jewelry.
Tasteful and elegant doesn’t mean you can’t be a little edgy, just don’t overdo it. Today’s brides want to make a statement and what better way than to rock your jewelry with a twist. One of the biggest trends today is to wear mismatched earrings. A few do’s and don’ts:
•Don’t mix your metals. Fashion 101 dictates silver and gold are mutually exclusive deals. One or the other.
•Don’t mix your stones. Keep it simple. Besides if you’re wearing diamonds….wear diamonds!
•Do keep them asymmetrical. Similar metals and stones with an asymmetrical twist. A suggestion would be to wear one gracefully long earing paired with one that’s curiously crawling up the side of your ear. Below Scarlet Johansson pulls this off quite well!
Again don’t overdo it, you can be subtle and still show off your rebellious side. Maybe you like the look but are a little hesitant to carry it off yourself, that’s what bridal parties are for. Let your maid of honor and bridesmaids roll with it.
Color stones are another way to make your individuality shine through. Your accessory jewelry can match or compliment your color theme.
Although this amethyst beauty below isn’t an accent piece it is very much on trend with the major focal stone surrounded by a setting paved with similar smaller cut stones.
Along with colored stones, unusual cut stones are also in vogue.
Of course, we can’t forget the most important piece of jewelry of the day, the wedding ring. Becoming more and more popular is the cigar band style of wedding band for both bride and groom.
The wider nature of the cigar band allows for more detailed engraving and placement of stones. It also lets everyone know without mistake, “he or she is taken.”
Pearls are classic and very much on trend with today’s brides.
Here’s a tip: When wearing pearls- Be careful using hair spray, perfume and cosmetics as they can have a negative effect on your pearl jewelry and cause irreparable damage.
As it is with all new styles and trends in fashion of all types, there are two things to remember on your wedding day. When it comes to jewelry avoid “fads” as they could look foolish down the road and lastly, be true to yourself! If it feels right to you, it is right for you!
