I bought my dress last weekend, Denise by Maggie Sottero in ivory. And now that I’m looking for jewelry, I can’t decide what looks best. My hair will be up.
I’m considering a simple pearl necklace and some fancy pearl chandelier earrings and a big pearl bracelet.
What do you ladies think? (Please excuse the fit of the top in the pictures, this is obviously before fittings. 🙂 )

You look great in your dress!! I would go for just a simple single strand of pearls…or a single pearl pendant on a nice sterling chain.
I think these earrings and bracelet would look great done in ivory pearls!

Congratuations on your beautiful dress! Your waist looks amazing. With regards to the necklace, have you tried a slightly longer strand of pearls? It may elongate your neck a little more. The choker style is a little distracting as it cuts you off at the neck, and takes away from the amazing fit of the dress.

@cliffette: Yeah, I just wore that necklace to get a rough idea of how pearls would look. I was considering a single strand choker, but you’re right, I don’t like how it looks.
Now my problem is finding a reasonably priced simple strand of pearls. Any suggestions?
I’m also looking at simple pearl pendants, any ideas on those?

Maybe a slightly more disperse strand would give a softer look..
Otherwise, I’ve seen pearlsonly.com recommended around the boards–not sure if they count as reasonably priced though!

what about a drop pearl necklace? With sweetheart tops I think it looks nice to have something dangling. I love the earring posted

I just have to say that you look STUNNING in that dress… gorgeous hourglass 🙂
I personally wouldn’t wear a necklace with that dress… it has such a gorgeous neckline and the detailing with the beading etc is beautiful.
I would opt for chandellier earrings instead (not necessarily as large as the ones I’m posting if that’s not your style though)… and a nice bracelet as you mentioned. [attachment=1384867,175778] [attachment=1384867,175779] [attachment=1384867,175780]
