    Of all the pieces you’ve shown, I think that the earrings and either one of the bracelets (though my favorite is the first one) would go best with your dress. I would not wear a necklace with your dress.  It already has so much gorgeous detail!

    @moczarna00:  I like the second bracelet only because the stones match the necklace and earring stones.

    I think any of these will be fine, but you shouldn’t do all three. Maybe a simpler earring with the necklace and no bracelet, or those earrings with the first bracelet and no necklace.

    I agree with @Brielle:. Go for big earrings, skip the necklace. 

    As for the pearl question… To pearl! Totally!

    Yeah. I’m also not so sold on the necklace. The earrings would overpower it, and especially since the bodice is so beaded I would forgo the necklace and just have the earrings and a bracelet. I prefer the first bracelet but both are lovely.

    If you’re set on the necklace, I think you need smaller earrings. Otherwise it’ll all just look like way too much.

    I think you should choose two pieces of jewelry.  Your dress is really elaborate, so I think wearing a necklace, dangly earrings, and bracelet would look too busy.

    BTW, love the earrings!

    @moczarna00: Here is another factor for you to consider when contemplating a necklace — unless the necklace you choose is something like a string of pearls that will look the same no matter how much it begins to shift on your neck, or unless it has a floating, weighted element in the center (which this one does not appear to have) so that it will remain centered at all times, you’re going to be dealing with a necklace that will shift and twist and not hang straight throughout the evening. You literally will need to have someone in charge of making sure your necklace is in the right position in all of your pictures and that it doesn’t look off-kilter throughout the night.

    However, if you really love the necklace, and if budget is no object, you can always purchase a necklace that coordinates with your bracelet and wear it with other outfits in the future. I’ve done that before – purchased dramatic earrings, a necklace and a bracelet all from the same “family” of jewelry, but I knew that the earrings would overpower the necklace and could not be worn simultaneously.  I just enjoy wearing the necklace with the bracelet and the earrings with the bracelet at different times. :)

    I think you could do all three and if the necklace is too much maybe try a simple one pearl on a delicate chain!
