Everyone adores pearls for their beauty and elegance. These gorgeous gems are the perfect accessory for any bride, no matter what style she is going for. Pearls can be worn with dresses of all different styles, lengths, and colors, and they pair well with an array of accessories like veils, headpieces, and belts.
With their classic, distinctive look, pearls are a perfect match for the unique blend of modern and traditional that defines today’s wedding fashion.
If you’re having trouble thinking of what pearl jewelry to pair with your wedding dress, here are some ideas:
Hanging necklace with a low-cut gown
Some brides like to wear a low-cut wedding dress. In that case, a hanging pearl necklace will complement the simple elegance of your gown and make you look like a million bucks when you walk down the aisle.
Choose a single or double strand of pearls to hang around your neck. The pearls should hang just above your chest, with the top of the necklace resting below your collarbone.
Matching drop earrings and a pendant
Drop pearl earrings with a matching pendant make for a classic evergreen style. The combo will look good with a dress that has less in front and more on top, whether that means a sweetheart neckline, a high collar, or both.
The look is perfect for understated elegance and is especially fitting for a spring or summer wedding. It’s also great for brides who aren’t into jewelry; they don’t need anything else but those tiny drops of pearls to make the statement you want.
A curved bar pearl necklace for a vintage look
The style will suit the bride, who is nostalgic about the looks back in time. A curved bar pearl necklace will create an elegant vintage look. It’s great if you like pearls but are afraid they’ll clash with your gorgeous wedding dress.
A curved bar pearl necklace will look fantastic with a lacey, gossamer wedding dress that’s perfect for whirling around on an old wooden dance floor to classic hits from the 1950s.
An eternity pearl necklace
Pearls are the universal symbol of love and happiness. An eternity pearl necklace is a classic piece that invokes the timeless romance of a forever kind of love. If you settle on something more modern, like a sleek satin gown, this will look great against that minimalistic vibe. It also matches perfectly with traditional lace or even rustic styles—it’s all up to what speaks to you!
An eternity necklace is so romantic, and it’s the perfect thing to wear on your wedding day if you’re feeling super sentimental about committing yourself to your partner forever.
A statement branch pearl necklace and bracelet
If you want something bolder, consider going all out with a statement branch pearl necklace. You can make a stunning set by combining it with a branch bracelet.
Pearls don’t have to be boring. A statement branch set is sure to make an impact—and we promise it’ll look great in photos (which is, of course, most important!). The unique design makes this a sure-fire conversation starter at any wedding party or reception, so wear it proudly.
