Some Do's and Don'ts for Wearing Statement Earrings at Your Wedding

Your bridal jewelry should complement and enhance your overall wedding day look. For some brides, this means opting for statement diamond earrings. But at other times, understatement is a better choice. How can you decide which to go with? Here are a few dos and don'ts. 

Do Use Statement Earrings Alone

In general, if you opt for statement earrings, avoid other large statement pieces. A large and intricate necklace with a V-neck dress and a set of diamond chandelier earrings can easily overpower one another. Viewers' eyes don't know where to focus, so the impact of both can be lost. So if you plan a statement necklace, start by looking at small drop or stud earrings. 

Don't Use Jewelry You're Uncomfortable With

Your wedding day jewelry should be at least a little more special or unique than what you wear every day. But don't feel the need to go overboard. If you're not one to wear large, dangling, or heavy earrings, doing so could distract or unnerve you on the big day. Instead, look for a beautiful heirloom diamond set that's daintier or simpler and enjoy them more. 

Do Consider Your Hairstyle

Before choosing earrings, determine the type of hairstyle you'll wear. Statement earrings, such as large drops or floral designs, pair particularly well with an updo or partial updo. Not only does this allow more to enjoy the statement made by the earrings, but you can see them from all directions. Whether or not to use studs or small drops with long, flowing hair depends on how much they will be hidden and what your other jewelry is. 

Don't Overpower the Dress

The bridal gown is the centerpiece of the wedding look, so nothing should take away from it. The right earrings enhance its beauty and make up for its weaknesses rather than compete with it. The simpler the dress, the more likely that a pair of stunning diamond earrings will add to it. The more complex the bodice, the less you need to embellish. 

Do Work With the Neckline

Along with your hairstyle, the dress's neckline is a key factor for earring choice. Off-the-shoulder dresses, V necklines, and boat necklines often work great with a larger earring. High necklines and illusion dresses tend to work pair well with smaller diamond studs. While there is no hard-and-fast rule, start with these guidelines and adjust only as your dress warrants.
