Wedding Shopping – How to Buy a Necklace


The bridal wedding necklace helps complete the overall look of the bride. It can enhance or change the look of the wedding gown. The bride has a number of wedding necklace options available. Choosing just one may prove to be a dilemma to her. Here are some tips to help you choose a suitable wedding necklace:

1. Consider the neckline. The neckline of the wedding gown will determine to a huge extent the kind of necklace you should wear. The necklace maybe expensive and beautiful but if it does not go well with the neckline of the dress, the result may not be so dramatic. It can even be disastrous. This is why, it is important to choose a necklace that fits the dress’ neckline.

Take for instance, a strapless gown. It is easy to find a suitable necklace for this gown. However, the necklace must not be too long to cover the design of the gown. Any necklace below 18 inches will do. Most gown neckline designs will go well with a choker or a princess necklace. Generally, gowns with low neckline require necklaces about 3 to 4 inches in length. Gowns with higher necklines may need a longer necklace.

2. Gown Details. Another factor to look into when choosing a wedding necklace is the gown detail. If the gown is filled with beads, pearls and patterns on the chest area, it will be a good idea to skip the necklace altogether.

The design on the gown is meant to be center of attention. Adding a necklace to an already crowded neckline may defeat the purpose. It will only disrupt the natural flow of the design.

On the other hand, if the bust part of the dress is bare. For instance, the dramatic design of the dress is on its train then you need to go all out on the necklace. It will be a good idea to get a good idea to find a necklace that is eye-catching. The more dramatic the necklace, the better it will be.

3. Compliment the Dress. Find a necklace that matches the overall look of the dress. If your dress has pearl beadwork on them then a pearl necklace will make sense. If your dress is made of dazzling silver-colored gemstones, wearing a gold necklace might seem out of place. The rest of the jewelry you wear must also complement the necklace. A pearl bracelet will not complement a silver necklace. The jewelry pieces must have similar styles and metal finishes.

In most cases, pear is the most obvious choice. It is a safe choice since it goes well with almost any dress design. Elaborate pearl designs often look good in a wedding dress. Some utilizes colored pearls such as green, pink or gold pearls to go with the color motif.

4. Season. The season will also influence to a certain extent the kind of necklace you will wear. Most brides choose crystal necklaces for summer weddings. For those marrying in the winter, a sparkling necklace such as a pearl choker will do.
