For earrings, I would look for something small, dangly, and primarily round. The flowers on the strap are round, so you can echo the shape with round earrings. Choosing a long earring will leave the earring too close to the strap, rather than accentuating the space between to imply the wearer has a long, graceful neck. Don’t go too small. I envision the dangly ornament to be about the size of a penny.

Are you doing silver or gold? Gold looks fantastic with plum, but if your dress or accessories have silver, I would do silver for the girls. If you do silver, I’d suggest white gemstones or plum freshwater pearls. Silver only won’t give you that special pop.

I imagine something like these:


If you want a less traditional look, leaf earrings would look very nice with that dress, provided they aren’t too long or too small. Imagine these with a purple pearl instead of a green one:

Let them wear their own jewelry.  No one notices it and you can’t even see it in pictures unless you squint.
