Just like your one-of-kind love, the jewelry you wear on your big day should tell a story. When you look back on your prized pictures and pieces, they should spark meaning and joyful reminders of your union. Lucky for you, Martin Binder Jeweler specializes in rare and stunning pieces from all around the globe. Below, we’ve listed some useful tips to get you started on finding the perfect bridal jewelry. Plus, we’re always here to help you pick out the perfect piece in person too.
Color is a great place to start. If you’re having trouble deciding between silver and gold, let your gown be the driver. Bright white dresses pair best with platinum or silver because of their luminous hues. If you select an ivory gown, opt for gold jewelry. The rich color will enhance the creamy shade of your dress. Are you going for a vintage-inspired look? Champagne dresses pair perfectly with burnished silver and gemstone jewelry to create an elegant vintage feel. Rose gold jewelry is the best for highlighting blush gowns because of the pink undertones. Does your dress have beadwork? If it does, let that be the deciding factor in the jewelry color you choose.
Like your bridal hairstyle, the jewelry you wear should complement the neckline of your gown. If your dress is strapless or has a sweetheart neckline, consider wearing a shorter necklace or choker to create height. Some of our top picks are the Gorjana Chloe Mini Choker Necklace and the Kendra Scott Nola Short Necklace. You could also skip the necklace and wear statement chandelier earrings to create the same effect.
V-neck dresses combine perfectly with pendants, chokers or even delicate layered necklaces. We love the Lagos Knot Pendant for this look. If your dress has a sweetheart, bateau or Queen Anne neckline, we recommend a pair of dainty stud earrings. But you could also go with classic diamond or pearl studs as well.
For a dash of color, try some gemstone studs. Not only will they highlight your wedding colors, but also serve as family heirlooms for generations to come. For off-the-shoulder or illusion necklines, pick out a stunning pair of statement earrings. They’ll provide balance and just the right amount of bling to accentuate your overall look.
You have likely heard of the saying “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” However, the search for something blue is typically the most difficult. Luckily, at Martin Binder, our travels have allowed us to bring back a wide collection of rare blue gemstone jewelry. From sapphires to tanzanite, you can complete your look with a meaningful pop of blue.
