So, I suck at pairing jewelry…. typically I wear my engagement ring and maybe a necklace if the shirt has a lower neckline. Earrings if it’s a special occassion.
For the wedding day I want necklace, earrings, and a bracelet. Oh, and I have a tiny tiny budget for my jewelry (in comparison to some people)- about $65 for all of it.
Here’s what I ordered for a necklace:
And here are earrings that match really well:
but……. I really like THESE earrings…………….
Do they match the necklace??? They both have diamonds… but the earrings have pearls…
And just for kicks- here’s the bracelet I want:
Help please 🙂

((note)) The earrings and the necklace both have a swirly pattern to them… if that helps. 🙂

I think the pearl earrings have enough of the characteristics of your necklace that they will look fine together. As a friend of mine says, ‘they don’t have to match, they just have to go.’
Pearls and diamonds were made to go together. And if you love them, then they go together and will look beautiful.

@Loribeth: aww, thanks! I like that saying- I have to keep reminding myself that ten years down the road it’s not going to matter if my jewelry matched. It’s the fact that I get to spend the rest of my life with the man I love.

@Loribeth: I totally agree with what your friend says.
@almostmrs.v: None of my jewelry “matches” per say, but they all have very similar aspects of pearls and rhinestones.I really don’t think there’s any reason why you couldn’t wear the earrings you really want with the rest of the jewelry.
Here are my earrings, hair comb and bracelet.

@Mrs.tobe: very pretty! Thanks for your input! I think I was actually looking at those earrings or something almost identical as an option as well! 🙂

I’d go with what you like. They have elements that are similar enough.

I like the idea of matching bling and pearls. My friends aren’t all so keen, but at the end of the day it’s not them wearing it!

Good advice! I think I’m gonna go for it! The necklace comes in the mail this week- so I want to see it with my dress before I proceed. Can’t wait!! 🙂
