    I really wouldn’t worry about the jewelry relative to your ering – your rings are going to stand out no matter what on your wedding day.  I really like the first pair of earrings you posted – very classic and it does complement your rings a little.  I think the earrings will also depend a lot on how you wear your hair.  If you’re wearing it up, the longer earrings may look more overpowering than the 1st and 4th options.

    I prefer set #1.  The milgrain is great, I love the focal stone, and I love the little detail on the ear wires.

    The chandelier set looks cheap to me – not “tacky” cheap, but cheaply constructed.  I make jewelry, and just glancing at it it’s very obvious that it’s not a well-made set of earrings.  The larger round rhinestones appear glued into their settings (lack of prong/bezel to hold them in contributes to this appearance).  The overall look is plasticky.

    The long dangles are also nice, but might overpower your other jewelry/overall look.  Then again, long earings like that can also make your neck look very long and slender, if your neck is exposed and not already kind of short and wide (like mine).  So that’s something to consider.

    I think that set #4 doesn’t match the look of your other jewelry or your gown.  Who cares about modesty?

    You are totally overthinking! Pick the pair you like best and go for it!

    I like the 1st pair. no one is going to be comparing them to your ring unless your hand is up by your ear all night long!

    southern_sweetheart91:  I love #3, but I think #1 or #4 will look better with your dress.  The only ones I didn’t like were #2!  Great choices. 🙂

    I agree that you shouldn’t compare your ering to the earrings you’ll wear.  But I’m personally more drawn to the “modest pair” you posted.

    I voted for the first pair, but I also love the third one as a close second. The only one I would avoid is the modest pair. If you want to go bold, do it!I actually love when brides wear bolder jewelry (I will), and I think it photographs well.
