I’m starting to look at my wedding jewelry and I’m having some “problems”.
Lets start from my rings: my ering is white gold, my wedding band will be rose gold and on my middle finger on my right hand I’ll be wearing my late grandmother’s engagement ring in yellow gold.
Here’s some pics:
The color scheme is red, blue, white and heaps of gold (yellow gold) and the theme is 1930s/Old Hollywood Glam. I was hoping to wear some pearl and diamante earrings like the ones below:
I still haven’t decided weather I’ll be wearing a necklace but if I go for it, it will certainly compliment the earrings as will the bracelet as well.
I’m just confused on weather I should be picking rose or gold jewelry settings. I would like to avoid white gold/silver as it doesn’t really compliment my skin tone but I’m worried that since my grandma’s ring has so much yellow gold in it maybe the rose gold jewelry will look completely out of place.
What do you Bees think? Any suggestions or thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your help 🙂

I recommend trying your jewellry with your dress, and seeing how it matches and corresponds. Is there a way you can incorporate your grandma’s ring in a more subtle way? Maybe have it tied around your bouquet, or on another hand? I think it’s a subtle difference, and you should stick to the rose gold, especially if it complements your skin tone. There will just be one item of jewellry that won’t strictly match – which is beautiful in its own right 🙂 good luck

I think you are way overthinking this. Choose the pieces that you love and that make you feel febulous. If you are mixing and matching metals, it’s no big deal.
I agree with PP that it’s best to try the pieces you are considering on with your dress. Detailed earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet may be a bit much, especially if your dress has details and/or you are adding in a hair piece or veil at some point in time. If you don’t have the option to try everything on, create a polyvore board with a photo of you wearig the dress, an then clip in/out different jewelry options. This was really helful to me as I was thinking of purchasng non-returable accessories. I could get a sense of how the piece I was thinking about worked with my dress and any other pieces I had already purchased.
