What jewellery should I wear to a wedding?
One of the questions we regularly hear from people is, what jewellery should I wear to a wedding?
People don’t want to wear something too big and overshadow the bride or draw too much attention to themselves; but they also want to be dressed up and show that they care about the event.
This is a fine line to walk, but it is doable. To help you find the perfect pieces of jewellery to match your wedding guest outfit, we have collected some of our favourite celebrity jewellery choices at recent weddings.
Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker
Kendall Jenner, the global star who is part of the Kardashian clan, wore a brilliant vintage Dolce & Gabbana maxi skirt and blazer to her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding in glamorous Portofino. To accessorise her striking outfit, Kendall adorned herself with a subtle gold chain necklace and pendant. Her NBA star beau Devin Booker opted for a small bracelet and a chunky gold chain.
Whilst it might be hard in any situation to outshine Kourtney Kardashian, let alone on her wedding day; Jenner expertly avoided any risk of that happening with her jewellery choice. A simple gold chain with a delicately crafted pendant is certainly a good option to consider for the next wedding you are invited to.
You can emulate her choice of a simple gold chain with this both beautiful but understated rose gold necklace.
Or if you were more focussed on Kendall’s pendant, then this Trillion cut necklace has a delicate emerald centre stone would be a perfect option.
Ashley Graham, the inspirational model, wore a pair of brilliant pearls attached to a very delicate chain, to Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s celebrity hotspot wedding in Avignon, France.
These pearls matched the white theme of the wedding, meaning that it would fit in with everything the other guests were wearing; rather than drawing attention to herself. This means that if the wedding has a theme, pick jewellery that will match that theme rather than standing out from everybody.
Reese Witherspoon chose to avoid drawing attention to her jewellery by wearing a stunning purple floral Saloni dress and then paired down gold and aquamarine accessories to Zoë Kravitz’s wedding.
Aquamarine is a good choice for subtle jewellery, because the pale blue is less striking than ruby red or a deep emerald green. Whilst it is a lovely vintage style ring, this aquamarine halo ring doesn’t demand people’s immediate attention.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton
It would be quite easy for the Duchess of Cambridge to overshadow Pippa Middleton, her sister, at her wedding. Being a royal, it is hard for Kate to go under the radar; but she tried to keep her outfit and jewellery choices looking chic but wouldn’t draw the limelight of the bride. She accomplished this by wearing a long-sleeved blush-pink dress, from her favourite designer Alexander McQueen, with a matching hat. She paired this with some dark ruby earrings that blended well with her dress.
If you like Kate’s demure ruby earrings, these round ruby and diamond studs will completely fit the bill.
