If your wedding dress is a ball gown, here is our guide for selecting the right wedding jewelry.
If you plan to walk down the aisle in a full ball gown, go big and a bit over-the-top with your accessories as well. To best accessorize your ball gown look, pair it with beautifully striking wedding jewelry.
Like with any gown, selecting your wedding jewelry is all about balance. Your jewelry should never out-do your dress. Luckily, a ball gown is such a statement, it can support more substantial pieces of jewelry.
Earrings are key. A stunning pair of earrings goes a long way. If the bodice of the ball gown is heavily beaded like this Monique Lhiullier gown, do not worry to much about a necklace. Let the gown shine.
But do add a ton of bling and sparkle with a intricate statement earring and bracelet. One of our favorite earring and bracelet pairings is the Bridal Crystal Garland Drop Earring and the Crystal Multi-cut Link Bracelet.
Alone, each piece is stunning, but together they really impress.
Some ball gowns are a bit more subdued and all of the drama is in the full skirt, like this dress by Waters. The sequined sweetheart neckline has a soft and delicate sparkle, but is not overly glitzy. The magnificent layers of tulle add a wow factor to a less intricate bodice.
Take this ball gown look over-the-top and add real sparkle to your neck with a Floral Crystal Necklace. Pair this necklace with the Crystal Fan Deco Drop Earrings and the Belle Epoque Crystal Teardrop Bracelet to really shine.
For a gold tone look, try the Gold Tassel Pearl Earring and Bridal Floral Crystal Gold Bracelet. You can leave your neck bare and opt for a floral hair comb like the Cherri Bendable Comb with Freshwater Pearl and Crystals.
For a simple strapless ball gown, a show stopping necklace is going to set the tone of your wedding jewelry look. This Carolina Herrera gown has simpler top with a very intricate skirt. Bring some glitz to this look and try the Bridal Marquise Crystal Swirl Necklace. With such an amazing necklace, all you need on your ears are a pair of diamond studs like these beautiful Diamond Cluster Studs.
And to bring the look all together, a Antique style Lace Crystal Cuff will be the final finishing touch. The fine details of these pieces compliment the intricacies of the skirt.
