A bride’s gown is clearly the most important piece when it comes to her wedding day style. However, the jewelry and accessories are close runners-up, because they tie her dream ensemble together. While the perfect pair of shoes is a must, jewelry choices are also of utmost importance (especially the wedding bands, since they will be worn daily).
With all the choices available, here’s a look at the jewelry trends dominating the runways this spring, courtesy of Amanda Hennigan at premierbride.com.
Colored stones making a comeback
According to Premier Bride, colored stones are increasing in popularity as a choice for engagement rings, including rubies, sapphires, emeralds or colored diamonds. They’re becoming increasingly popular in wedding bands as well, being used by brides as a way to bring eye-catching color to their ring set.
Partners are also choosing to experiment with stackable rings as an alternative to the traditional wedding ring set. These rings can bring color, texture, and even mixed metals to the set. This trend is a great way to play with different looks and get a feel for what works best with your existing rings.
Drop statement earrings
What adorns the ears plays a big part in wedding jewelry. Hairstyles can either hide or accentuate earrings, but for brides with pierced ears, they often are used to tie together the entire ensemble.
Trending for 2019 are drop statement earrings, encrusted with diamonds and other stones. This style complements traditional, sleek partial or full updos, and is perfect for the bride looking to add a dramatic accent to her bridal attire.
Statement necklace pieces
Depending on the neckline of the gown, necklaces can be statement pieces or understated additions to the overall look. With this year’s trend of statement earrings, necklaces are taking a back seat, encouraging simple and delicate, yet elegant pieces.
Layered necklaces create a similar effect to stacked rings. They add color and texture, while accenting the bride’s décolletage. Designers are even incorporating that mixed metal trend that we’re seeing, while keeping the pieces simple.
Choker necklaces, which have been making a comeback for the last few years, are being seen with an addition of a long end that’ll work with most necklines on bridal gowns.
