Okay, so yearterday I finally found my dress. YAY! It is Maggie Sottero’s Brigidine.
I was wondering what kind of jewelry I should wear with it? I was thinking something with diamonds and pearls, but what do you all think.
Here is the dress: (I don’t want anything real flashy, like what the model is wearing, and I can only wear clip on earrings. I’m allergic to metal, any kind, so I can’t have peircings. =[ )

I’d go with diamonds, personally. I love pearls but I don’t know that they would match the detail on the bodice of the dress.

i am a huge fan of pearls. i think they always look classic and aren’t too flashy. how about a pendant that incorporates pearls and diamonds? something like this:

if you can’t do earrings i would suggest doing a cute hairpeice so there is still something goin on by your face. then you could do a necklace and statement bracelet. if you can do either or with pearls and rinestones, you should shop arounds and keep your options open till you find something you love!

Actually, I think the necklace the model has on looks great – you could do layers of floating freshwater pearls, or pearls and small crystals; I think it would compliment really well!

I agree pearls are always a classic.

The very fact you said you didn’t want something too flashy screams pearls. : ) Good luck!

I agree with evereyone who recommended pearls. I have never seen a bride look bad in pearls.

I was thinking about doing both diamonds and pearls. I do believe the bodice has some pearls in it, if I remember correctly.
I was thinking about a necklace like this. http://www.overstock.com/Jewelry-Watches/Silvertone-CZ-Faux-Pearl-Leaf-Pendant/3046812/product.html
And I would wear clip on earrings, if I can find a pair, that I like, maybe something like this. http://www.weddingsparkles.com/beautiful-rectangle-clipon-earrings.html
Or something dangling, if I kind find something I like.
I really don’t like big jewelry all that much.
Oh, and the model, is wearing a diamond/pearl combination.

I’d go with something really simple since the dress has a lot of beading already. It’s a beautiful dress by the way, but I’d think too much bling could take away from it. I’d go with a solitaire diamond or crystal pendant and simple earrings.

Jennifer- Thank you! And that’s exactly what I thought. I was just thinking about doing a pendant or something, not like a whole necklace being wrapped in diamonds, and I like pendant necklaces a lot.
Also when I looked at this dress online, sadly the first thing I did kinda look at was the jewelry she was wearing. It looks nice on her, but I could never wear anything like that. I even bought a necklace with a lot of stuff going on, on it, and paired it with a really nice lil black dress, and as soon as I put that necklace on, I hated it, and then I put a much more simplier one on, and felt so much prettier.
I think I know what I’m going to do now! Thank you Bees for your help!

I didn’t wear a necklace but opted for a tiara instead for the day of the wedding. Because a lot of time when you wear a necklace it can end up shifting while you’re dancing. I also wore raindrop earrings which matched the tiara.

hhcheung2000- Thanks for the idea, but i’m not a fan of wearing a tiara. One dress consultant put one on me, and I didn’t like it. Thanks though!

I’d go with earrings since there is so much detailed beading on the bodice of the gown. I love the diamond/pearl combo!

Pearls would look beautiful 🙂
