How to Choose Colors for
Your Bridesmaids' Jewelry on Your Wedding Day
by: Penny Olson
When designing jewelry, the sky is the limit as far as color choices, stones,
shapes and over-all design. But just like a cherry on a sundae or the star on
the top of a Christmas tree, no outfit is complete without jewelry.
I would start with making a choice on your bridesmaids dresses. Take your Maid
of Honor with you to help you make a decision because usually there are more
choices of bridesmaid dresses than there are Wedding gowns in the boutiques.
This will help you get some feedback as far as what will work for all of the
girls and she can also try some of them on, since they normally look very
different on a person than they do on the rack.
Once you have made a decision, make sure that you get a swatch of the fabric so
that you have a true reference to the color of the gowns. I would not recommend
trying to match the tones in the jewelry by memory, especially if youíd like to
go with a similar color scheme. This simple, and not to mention free, tip will
make life much easier in the long run.
The next thing you will need to consider is what sort of stones youíd like your
girls to wear on the big day. There are quite a lot of choices when it comes to
this subject, you can go with semi-precious stones, crystals, pearls or even
just a simple pendant on a satin cord. The best place to start is with style of
the dresses, taking into consideration the color and the cut of the dress
Then you can decide if youíd like to go with one type and shape of stone for
example, crystals or pearls, you can have a single strand or you can also go
with a layered look of two or three stands of the same stone. I personally find
this very effective and itís also nice because if you go with a necklace and
bracelet that are of a simpler design, your girls will get much more use out of
them in the future.
If you are having trouble finding something that will compliment your dresses
closely, donít worry, I find that if you go with a mono-chromatic scheme and put
several shades together that are in the same family it will give you a little
more interest in the jewelry and you donít have to be so concerned with having a
perfect match. You can view a sampling of Swarovski Crystal colors using a
Swarovski Crystal color chart. Also, donít be afraid to consider other color
options when working with hues in this manner. For example, you may find that
with a pale green dress, shades of citrine or yellow topaz will look very nice,
or even shades of blue. It all depends on the undertones in the fabric.
The last thing to consider is the shapes of the stones that you wish to use. You
could go with a single size, like tiny pearls on layered strings for a very
feminine and classic look. Or you may want to go with several shapes and sizes
that when put together, will make a pattern and create some interest like a
Swarovski Crystal Round and Bicone Necklace, this can be very dramatic or just
slight variations in the shapes.
