Earrings are one of the most popular options for wedding jewelry. They go well with any hairstyle, any neckline, and any body type. Of course, the variety that earrings offer help complete your look depending on their style, metal, size, stones and proportions. Unlike, say, a necklace, earrings won’t compete with even a busy neckline or illusion neck wedding dress. And even a bride who adores statement cocktail rings in her daily life won’t want a 20 carat sapphire overshadowing her engagement ring (unless, of course, your diamond is 20 carats. If that’s the case, send us pictures.) And earrings are a perfect match for our other favorite wedding day jewelry, bracelets. A beautiful bracelet adds sparkle or personality, and often sentimentality. And nothing sets off a stunning bouquet better than a fabulous tennis bracelet or classic pearls. But we digress – earrings are today’s topic of wedding discussion, and we’ve chosen a few of our favorites from our showcases below.
These Van Cleef & Arpels earrings are perfect for a summertime tropical wedding. With a loose construction that reminds us of azaleas, they’re perfectly tropical without being pineapples. We like these extra sparkly earrings with a loose updo, like a low side chignon or a braided bun and an ethereal, light as air wedding gown. Think a Ralph Lauren sheath and meet us in Maui.
These platinum round and pear shaped drop earrings are perfect for the princess bride. We’d love to see these sparking on a bride with her hair in a high, clean bun and a basque waist ball gown. She’ll probably be wearing sweet and feminine shoes to her Ballroom Wedding.
If you want – nay – need drama, look no further than our most fabulous recent creation. These 11 carat fancy yellow diamonds are set in tri-color gold with additional diamonds (more is always more in our book). These earrings are for the bride who’s wearing Vera Wang, Louboutin, and rocking a huge pear shaped engagement ring (bonus points if it’s also fancy yellow). Dress code is black tie and chances are the yacht she’s holding the reception on is breathtaking. She had better be wearing her hair side swept or up, because these earrings need to be seen.
The ultimate classic, these earrings are for the bride wearing her dream gown and Kate Spade slingbacks. Her country club wedding is pitch perfect whether it’s in Orange County or Connecticut. She’ll don these beauties on the morning of her wedding, a gift from her sweet groom, and let them sparkle beneath romantic waves or a half updo.
