As a designer who creates custom pieces for a celebrity clientele and who has outfitted many brides with their bridal jewelry, Joanna knows how to choose the perfect piece to complete your bridal look! Read on for her tips on finding the right accessories for your bridal style.
For the sophisticated city hall bride... Pearls beautifully accent a chic daytime look. They are utterly feminine and will add a little glow to your wedding look. We love the look of classic pearl strands for city hall and elaborately elegant pieces for a more glamorous affair. For the classic, royal-inspired bride... Brides channeling Grace Kelly or Kate Middleton could try a stunning princess collar comprised of fancy-cut gems. If a bride chooses to wear a statement necklace, I recommend pairing it with very simple hair and makeup.
For a bride that doesn't want to wear jewelry but wants to dress up her look, I would suggest a headpiece made of flowers, swags, and bows in cut-crystal. For the boho bride... The bohemian bride pulls in vintage and vintage-inspired elements for a very personal and romantic look. A beautifully-ornamented headpiece works if you are wearing your hair up or down. Floral motifs are huge and when they're in gold and crystal, it only adds to the whimsy of the wedding. Accessories that contain an artful element help finish off the boho bride's look. For the destination bride... For a destination wedding, it's important to be able to travel with your jewelry and keep it compact, so pieces that have multiple uses are key.
convertible earring is perfect for the bride traveling to her wedding. We love that she can wear a pavé hoop to the rehearsal dinner, and then add the radiant-cut stone with a halo for the ceremony. She may even choose to swap in a sapphire color as her "something blue."
