Your gown’s decolletage will play a role in framing your face. Help it do its job by selecting the jewelry that pairs perfectly with it.
If your dress has a sweetheart or strapless neckline: To create height and to direct all eyes to your smile, consider wearing a choker with this silhouette. The necklace style is making a comeback and looks timeless with this neckline. Another option: Skip the necklace and wear statement chandelier earrings instead. Pull your hair off your face and add a few fresh flowers, ’20s-inspired feather barrettes, or another simple embellishment that works with your look. As your decolletage is the focal point, you’ll want your standout pieces there, but don’t hesitate to add a smaller bracelet, bangle or cocktail ring to balance everything out.
If your dress has a V-neck: This style is made for decolletage decoration. Opt for a choker or pendant. Or try layering both, if they’re delicate pieces. Pair the necklace with earrings, which could be small or dangling—whichever looks best with your hairstyle.
If your dress has a halter or reverse halter: Focus your accessorizing on your hair by decorating it with pins, combs or vines. These can be sleek, bejeweled or floral, depending on the effect you want. Going for a retro vibe? Try a gorgeous embellished birdcage veil. If you need a little extra something, try a bracelet or cocktail ring.
