Jewelry that completes a classic wedding dress A pearl necklace and crystal earrings are perfect jewelry to complete a classic wedding dress. They will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your look, and will make you stand out on your wedding day.

Our advice for choosing your wedding jewelry:

  • Consider the style of your dress. Indeed, the neckline of your wedding dress is the determining criterion for choosing the necklace you will wear. For wedding dresses with a strapless, boat or bardot collar, a choker or short round necklace will be perfect. However, if your dress is low-cut, our suggestion would be a rather plunging necklace which will highlight this aspect. On the other hand, if the collar is high or very decorated with lace, precious stones or other details, we suggest that you avoid collars.
  • Find good consistency with the style . Crystal earrings can add a touch of glamour. Make sure they match the overall style of your outfit. If your dress is modern, clean-lined crystals may work, while a more classic dress can accommodate more traditional crystals.
  • Find harmony. Make sure the earrings match the necklace or other jewelry you might be wearing. The balance between the different pieces is essential. Also make sure that the white shade of the pearls, dress, veil and other accessories is in harmony. Don't overdo it, as excess or bulky accessories can distract attention.
