Choosing the Perfect Wedding Earrings

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Earrings

Consider Your Dress Style and Neckline

The style of your dress plays a crucial role in selecting earrings. A simple gown might call for more elaborate earrings, while a highly detailed dress might look best with something subtle. Additionally, the neckline of your dress can dictate the length and style of your earrings. For instance, strapless dresses often pair well with longer, more dramatic earrings, while high-necked dresses might call for studs or small drops. These silver cz chandelier drop earrings bring the drama while the yellow gold studs offer just a touch of sparkle.

Match the Metal to Your Dress

Pay attention to the color and tone of your dress. If your dress has ivory tones, gold might complement it well. A pure white dress might look best with silver or platinum jewelry. For a dress with warmer tones, consider rose gold. These two tone yellow and white gold pearl and diamond earrings would be beautiful with ivory tones while the silver pearl drop earrings would complement a pure white dress to perfection.

Keep Your Hairstyle in Mind

Your hairstyle for the day can impact how your earrings are displayed. If you plan to wear your hair down, smaller studs or something subtle may be lost, whereas larger or longer earrings can stand out beautifully. With an updo, you can choose almost any style of earring. These 14ct yellow gold oval link swish drop earrings are ideal to wear with your hair down while the yellow gold diamond swirl studs offer just enough sparkle to dazzle your guests if you wear an updo.

Consider the Venue

The setting of your wedding can also guide your choice. A black tie wedding might call for more glamorous, sparkling earrings, while a daytime or outdoor wedding might be suited to something more natural or understated. We adore these silver shimmer drop earrings, a statement choice for a formal wedding.

If you're wearing other pieces of jewellery, like a necklace or bracelet, aim for a cohesive look. Everything doesn't need to match perfectly, but they should complement each other. If your other jewelry is quite bold, you might opt for simpler earrings, and vice versa e.g. if you were wearing an intricate bracelet like the antique style diamond bracelet pictured below then a simple stud in the same colour is the way to go.

Think About Your Comfort

Remember, you'll be wearing these earrings all day. Make sure they're not too heavy or uncomfortable. Test them out by wearing them for a few hours before the wedding day. We love these 9ct yellow gold pearl drop earrings, so easy to wear.
