Whether you’re wearing a veil or tiara, don’t forget to bring your jewelry, especially your earrings along to the fittings. You need to be certain that your choice of jewelry won’t interfere with your choice of headpiece.

DON’T Buy Jewelry Before the Gown

This is the most crucial guideline on our DO’s And DON’Ts list. Before selecting wedding jewelry, make sure you’ve decided on a gown. When it comes to bridal jewelry, it’s vital to consider the neckline, fabric, and style of your gown so you know how much jewelry to accessorize your wedding look with and what jewelry items to avoid entirely.

DO Mix Something Old with Something New

You don’t have to purchase a whole set of matching jewelry – although you certainly could – your wedding jewelry should be a reflection of who you are. Wearing heirloom jewelry or a piece from your mum’s jewelry collection is perfectly acceptable as long as the finishes of the jewelry go with your overall wedding look.

DON’T Overdo It – Less is More

Simple wedding jewelry.

You can’t wear a necklace with a one-shoulder gown because it’s a double statement that confuses the eye. You might opt for a gorgeous pair of earrings and/or a bracelet instead. Although the one-shoulder gown should speak for itself, a little sparkle never hurts.

DO Stay in your Comfort Zone

Happy married couple.

You definitely don’t want to leave your comfort zone on a day when your emotions are entirely out of control. As a result, don’t start accessorizing in anything that doesn’t seem right or wearing jewelry you wouldn’t usually wear.

DON’T Forget to Get your Manicure and Pedicure

Your wedding photographer will certainly snap some close-up images of your ring, so don’t allow a bad nail day to ruin your special day. Although, it’s advised to opt for a simple French mani, nude polish, or ombré look to complement your wedding jewelry look. If you opt for a color, be sure that it complements all of your wedding day outfits and jewelry looks.

DO Switch Up your Jewelry for the Reception

Switching up your jewelry look for your wedding reception outfit could transform your overall appearance whether you switch up your hairdo or not. It is your special day so why not go all out and wear those jewelry pieces you’d hoped to wear down the aisle but just didn’t suit your wedding gown.

DON’T Shop at the Last Minute

Bridal jewelry is more than just a piece of jewelry. Make sure you’ve spent enough time shopping around before making your final purchases. The jewelry, like your heels, brings the entire wedding look together, so plan ahead so you can find exactly what you’re looking for and compare pricing. If you want anything custom-made, be prepared to wait up to three months.

DO Shop for a Jewelry Gift for your Future Husband

If you haven’t shopped for a gift for your future husband as yet, we suggest opting for a piece of jewelry that he could treasure for a lifetime. Whether that be an engraved piece or a timepiece we know that jewelry will go a long way in expressing how much he means to you.
