Check out some of our fun wedding jewelry ideas, and then take a look at our top tips for choosing the perfect wedding day jewelry for the bride.

Start with “Something Borrowed” Pieces First

Not all brides will take the traditional route with their wedding, but many still love to collect something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Doing so is said to ward off evil and bring about happiness and good luck for the new couple. Whether you believe in the meaning behind it or not, it can be a fun way to incorporate a little tradition and cherished possessions into your special day. 

If you’re considering opting into this tradition and you expect jewelry to be a part of it, start with that. Whether it’s something old or borrowed that you plan to accessorize with, beginning with this piece will help you build the rest of your wedding day look around it. Perhaps Grandma’s old brooch will be pinned to your bouquet, your mother’s earrings will be adorning your ears, or your mother-in-law’s veil will be worn. Starting here will help you create a cohesive look that you love.

Wedding Jewelry That Makes You Feel Most Confident

Bridal jewelry ideas are all over Pinterest and other social media, and Hollywood has set the bar pretty high when it comes to wedding dress jewelry. But you should always prioritize your personal style and design preferences when it comes to your wedding jewelry, regardless of what's trendy at the time. Explore wedding jewelry ideas that you love and feel right for you. They can match your dress, wedding décor, personality, and style preferences, but they don’t have to match the latest trends. 

The general rule for wedding jewelry is to find what you’re comfortable in and then push it just a tad further. Don’t totally break out of your comfort level and go nuts, like wearing huge chandelier earrings when you literally never wear earrings. But take something you already love, like stackable bracelets or pendant necklaces, and kick it up a notch. Remember that recommendations from your mom, soon-to-be mother-in-law, or others may not be the best advice for you personally, and that’s okay. Go with what makes you excited and what you feel best in, and you’re sure to love your final look on the big day.

While not everyone wears bracelets or necklaces on their wedding day, earrings are the most popular must-have jewelry for a wedding day. You should consider your dress, veil, hairstyle, and personal preferences when selecting your wedding day earrings. 

Maybe you don’t want to wear big earrings during the ceremony because they conflict with your veil. That’s totally fine—wear your veil and maybe some simple stud earrings for the ceremony, and then when you take the veil off for the reception, put on your big sparkling dangly earrings. Remember, the choice is yours, and nothing is off-limits. 


A necklace can add a lot to your overall look on your wedding day, but it may not be necessary for every woman or every dress. If you do opt for a necklace, be sure to consider your neckline. 

Strapless wedding dress jewelry, for instance, will look different than jewelry that goes well with a wedding dress with a halter top. For higher necklines, you might wish to forego a necklace completely in lieu of dangling earrings. For a V-neck or sweetheart neckline, a pendant necklace or a shorter chain or choker-style necklace will be perfect.


Not everyone is an everyday-bracelet kind of girl, and that’s alright. You might feel great about donning one on your big day, or you might not. Again, you want to make sure you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing! 

If you want to select a delicate tennis bracelet, a bold cuff, or a handful of bangles, go for it. Selecting something that feels like you is ideal, and if you need help pairing your favorite styles together for the most cohesive look, stop by Roman Malakov for some expert advice.

Matching Your Metals

You might be tempted to pick simple wedding jewelry that matches the metal of your engagement and wedding rings. But that’s not a hard and fast rule, and you definitely don’t have to do that. Instead, you might consider metals that pair well with the color or fabric of your wedding dress or go with some mixed metal pieces. Typically, bright whites look best with platinum or white gold, while ivory and cream pair well with yellow gold. If your dress has pink undertones, consider rose gold bridal jewelry.
