I had the same issue (pink and gold wedding colors), and for my bridesmaids I avoided the issue by going with pink pearl jewelry. For myself I went with silver jewelry and it looks completely fine in photos.

I had the same dilemma,  and on top of it my dress was light gold.  I bought 2 different pairs of gold chandelier earrings as options for myself, but they looked terrible with the dress (gold is really noticeable when your all decked out in white/ivory)  I ended up with silver/swarovski earrings in the end-it really does look better in the pics regardless of the gold accents.   However my bridesmaids all wore their own yellow gold jewelry (mostly borrowed from their mothers as they are silver/white gold people as well)…  it did look better than silver would have.  I opted to not buy them jewelry for that reason.

If you are concerned with this, then buy them their jewelry to wear (except for watches and or rings).

I think jewelry is such a subtle accent in the grand scheme of your big day, that if you don’t 100% match the rest of your wedding, you’ll be okay   Just my two cents!  It is something very few people will notice.  What is most important is that you’re all comfortable in what you’re wearing.

i agree with cupcake. i don’t think you have to worry so much about matching your wedding colors; i’ve actually never noticed it when i’ve seen other weddings. i think it’s better to have jewellery that complements your dresses and your bridesmaids so they look fabulous!

My own wedding gown has gold in it, and I’m still wearing silver jewelry, so I’m all for it!

I think that it’s fine.

I am using gold as a wedding color too. I am thinking about sticking to either diamonds (fake ones) or pearls for the wedding jewelry.

I agree with Cupcake…if you feel strongly one way or the other about wearing certain color jewelry, pick what you feel comfortable with!

At the end of the day no one is going to say "gosh the wedding was so winderful, but did you see that the bridesmaid’s jewelry clashed with the wedding colors!?!?"
