You may have settled on bridesmaid dresses, but have you considered the statement jewelry to tie everyone’s looks together? Our latest guide answers a few FAQs and includes bridesmaid jewelry ideas for every dress style.
We get it—every bride has a unique vision for her big day. Here are a few ways to decide on wedding jewelry for bridesmaids.
For our brides-to-be, we advise letting your bridal party choose their own accessories. After all, they’ve already invested in matching/color-coordinated dresses, so pushing for matching bridesmaid jewelry may or may not pan out the way you’re envisioning. Encouraging them to wear their own jewels will allow them to personalize their ensembles and avoidtoo much matching.

What jewelry to wear as a bridesmaid will also be determined by the neckline of your dress. Here are our styling tips:
There is no shortage of options when it comes to jewelry for a strapless bridesmaid dress! Don’t be afraid to be bold here. Opt for a dramatic pair ofshoulder length earrings, acontemporary choker, or an eye-catching statement necklace.
Pro tip: If you go with bold earrings, keep it simple (or forgo the necklace); if you choose a statement necklace, keep the earrings simple (e.g., a pair of classic studs).
