A new wedding season is around the corner. You probably have a wedding in the family or have already received invites to pre-wedding parties and reception. You’d need to pick a few dresses, gowns. What about jewelry? A daring cocktail ring can help make a formal gown quite edgy, while long pendant necklaces go with most styles. Does your gown have a long neckline? Layer up the neck and accentuate the neckline with a long pendant necklace. Bright gemstones and contrast shades set on drop or chandelier earrings are quite charming. Piaget’s Viva l’Arte earrings in pink gold set with red and pink spinels, spessartite garnets, pink sapphires and diamonds can be a delightful accessory for your gown, while the Soothing Lotus collection earrings by De Beers – featuring rough and cut diamonds arranged artfully – are the epitome of elegance. Bulgari’s Festa Tamburelli earrings with bright and contrasting gemstones will instantly brighten up your wardrobe. Accent your wardrobe with bangles, bracelets, statement cuffs, brooches, necklaces in pearls, sapphires, rubies and diamonds that play up the color, cut and neckline of your dress.
Here are some quick tips:
- Opera necklaces tend to fall below the bust line and above the waist, evoking grandeur if you have a tall frame.
- Chokers shorten your neckline. This can, at times, be a slightly challenging style to wear. Choker, for sure, is a statement accessory for glamorous evenings and weddings.
- Open-back gowns demand lariats that are worn in the ‘back-lace’ trend.
- Cocktail rings featuring gem or diamond-paved shanks are attention-grabbing.
