Let's Talk Bridal Style 
If deciding on your jewels is proving more difficult than finding the gown, there's one jewelry duo that's timeless, pearls. A pearl necklace parked with matching pear earrings.

Knowing what color will work with your wedding dress's shade of white is a good way to begin choosing your wedding jewelry.

White Gown: Gold embellishments may clash with this bright white hue. We suggest sticking to pearl and platinum.
Diamond-white Gown: This barely off-white color works with gold and silver (and rose shades of gold and pearl).
Ivory Gown: This candlelight shade is a soft, light white, and some versions even have yellow undertones. Decorate yourself with gold jewelry to highlight the creamy tint of the fabric.

What to wear with different necklines:

Sweetheart or Strapless: For something a little different, skip the necklace, and focus on some great chandelier earrings instead. Wear clear crystal for a sleek look, or punch it up with a hint of color. Try using a meaningful gem like your birthstone (see Swarovski Birthstone Chart at bottom of page), or pick a color from the flowers in your bridal bouquet.

V-neck: this style begs for decolletage decoration. A there strand Jackie or Grace necklace is an elegant way to accessorize, while pearls exude classic charm an crystals bring sparkle.

Halter: whether you wear your hair in a sleek bun or loose ponytail, dressing up your tresses is a great way to accessorize a halter gown. Headbands can add flare to your wedding updo. But if headbands aren't quite your style, try adding some sparkle with statement earrings like the Josephine in crystal AB.

The most important thing about picking the perfect trinkets for your wedding gown is that they are a reflection of you.  Love the way you look. If you're comfortable in all your accessories, your wedding day ensemble is guaranteed to dazzle! Congratulations on your engagement :) Good luck with your planning!
