As most retail jewelers know, the engagement ring is merely an appetizer—albeit a very filling one—to the main course of jewelry served at the wedding. That goes double if your client is a statement-making bride looking for a suite of spectacular day-of jewels to create an unforgettable impression as she walks down the aisle and cuts a rug at the reception.
Besides matching a necklace to the neckline of the wedding gown, there are no hard-and-fast rules. Earrings are an easy and obvious way to make a dramatic impression. Bracelets can be stacked or stand alone. Necklaces can be set in yellow gold, even if the rings are all platinum (and vice versa). Even jewels featuring surprising symbols, such as the slinky diamond-pavé snake set by Roberto Coin featured below, are fair game for today’s nuptials.
The only thing style-conscious brides should keep in mind, as the 10 bridal statement pieces featured below indicate: Don’t be afraid to embrace bigger silhouettes. When it comes to wedding day jewelry, size matters!
