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.
