The Statement Bride

Last month, we talked about jewelry picks for an understated bride. If that didn't quite tantalize you, perhaps statement jewelry is what you need. Your wedding is all about YOU; so what better time to turn heads with some jaw-dropping bling? Here are some of our favourites.

1. The statement necklace

There's nothing like a big sparkly necklace to make a statement. It's the perfect finishing touch for almost any wedding dress. Don't forget to consider your neckline - a large piece like this would pair well with a strapless dress, while a higher neckline might fare better with a shorter necklace.





2. The statement earrings

We love a good statement necklace, but a statement earring can certainly hold its own. These pearl duster earrings are as simply elegant as they are stunning. From dazzling vintage button earrings to ornate chandelier earrings, the choices are endless. Just remember to wear your hair up to let your ear candy shine.





3. Pearls à la mode

Pearls have been a go-to fave for brides since anyone can remember. Instead of the classic rope of pearls, change things up a bit by going for a pearl statement piece instead. Choose an uber-mod piece like this, a versatile pearl lariat, or a stylish pearl encrusted earring.






4. Color!


Who says a bride has to be in white from head to toe? If Casper's look is not for you, try colored jewelry instead of the normal pearls and diamonds. Stay chic by keeping to one statement piece, and tie that in with a color from your wedding theme, like your bouquet, decor, or even your bridesmaids. For the truly edgy bride, why not a touch a black?
