I don’t think that onyx would clash at all. The middle is silver and well, I think that’s kind of neutral. If not.. could you replace the middle with something?

If you love pearls, what about going with something like this?

I am wearing one for my wedding. I just search for “pearl bridal necklace with broach”. They sell a ton on etsy. I am thinking about making my own (a lot cheeper). Just sting a few pearls together and add a broach that you like. You can get all the supplies from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s for less than 20 bucks.

I don’t think that the onyx pieces you pictured would clash at all. Silver with silver and black. Perfect!

It’s hard to say without seeing it on, but it’s not the clashing I’d be worried about; it’s the competition. Black & white are the highest contrast which garner a lot of attention–so the black onyx drop juxtaposed with your white neckline might be sort of a “hot spot.” I might be a little worried that that hot spot would compete with the focus of the beaded element at your waist. Again, though, it’s difficult to say whether it WOULD compete without seeing it on–it really depends on the size of the stone and the length of the necklace; the brilliance of the beaded element at the waist, etc.

At the same time, I don’t believe in buying jewelry just for a wedding anyway–buy jewelry to wear for your wedding, but make it something that you’d be able to wear afterwards. So if you really love the necklace and earrings and you buy them and find that they’re not the right look for the wedding, is it really a loss if you love them and can use them in your everyday life?

I think the Onyx looks very elegant, regardless of your wedding colors (unless they’re very happy, spring-time or something).
