Pearl Necklaces: Finding The Perfect Wedding Combination

Pearl necklaces are often seen in such splendid fashion around the neck of a beautiful bride. Often the bride will be seen wrapped in alluring pearl strands or donning just a single, spectacular drop pearl necklace. However, it’s not about wearing just any pearls. While they’ll look pretty nonetheless, you’ll want pearl jewellery that matches with the rest of your look. Since the necklace is going to be featured in all of your wedding photos, you’ll want to make sure you’re looking as perfect as you can be. So, how do you know which necklace will suit you?

What Are The Best Pearl Necklaces For A Wedding Dress?

The best pearl necklaces for a wedding dress are often colour-coordinated with any pearls or adornments that are on the wedding dress – rather than with the colour of the wedding gown itself. So, if you’ve got white pearls on an ivory coloured gown, you’ll want your necklace to have white pearls too. However, if you’re going for a non-traditional wedding dress, rest assured that there are plenty of different coloured pearl necklaces out there too. In terms of the design, any dress that shows off a lot of your neck should, undoubtedly, be complemented by a necklace. This should preferably sit one inch above your neckline so as to not give the appearance that it is falling into the dress. In regards to the style of necklace, you’ll note that a single strand of pearls worn as a choker, or longer, will always look elegant. You can even go for intriguing, uneven baroque pearls to give off a unique look that may complement your style and persona. If, however, you’re going with a halter cut, a pendant could be your best bet, as anything that is too fussy will clash with the neckline. Aside from pearl necklaces, you can also opt for a pair of pearl earrings too. Stud earrings are often the classic choice, but drop earrings can work too if the drop is both simple and short enough.

Why Go With Real Pearl Necklaces?

Real pearl necklaces are the go-to for any wedding jewellery because they have a long, traditional association with the marital process. The pearl necklace has come to represent respectability and power for women. Coco Chanel famously said that “a woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls” – and her fashion sense certainly never betrayed her. While it’s easy to imagine having Daisy’s $350,000 wedding-day pearl necklace from The Great Gatsby adorned on you, you have to keep it realistic too. There are plenty of beautiful pearls out there that are both pretty and affordable. Such pearls can be found at Lustrous Jewellery. In fact, we sell three specific bridal items. Pearl choker necklaces have a long association with weddings, and we have a stunning classic ivory pearl and diamante bridal choker available that will be sure to leave everyone stunned. There’s also a matching cuff for sale too. And, in terms of earrings, we sell a stunning pair of shimmering cluster white pearl drop earrings that provide the short and simple drop that we were talking about previously. However, you may also find other jewellery suited to your wedding day amongst our collection of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants and rings. The best thing about pearls is that they can be worn long after your wedding day – and will serve as a happy reminder of the big day. They may even become family heirlooms!
