How to Style a Statement Necklace with your Wedding Dress

Your wedding dress is something you’ve always dreamt of. While the dress takes center stage, your choice of accessories is just as important. You want your jewelry to make a statement without overpowering your dress. If jewelry has always been your signature, you want to go all out with a bridal statement necklace.


At Glitz and Love, we’re fortunate to play a small role in many special days for our community. If you’re a bride preparing to say, ‘I do’,our range of wedding statement jewelry can help you create a timeless look that is whimsical, romantic, and effortlessly elegant.


We’re sharing our top tips on how to style any of our bridal necklaces with your wedding dress for the big day.


Why you should wear a bridal statement necklace

You want to make a statement on your big day. A statement necklace can take even the most minimalistic silhouette to the next level. Adding our Statement Princess Necklace can add a touch of your glittering personality to your bridal look.


When done right, a bridal statement necklace can enhance your dress and help you channel your inner royalty. Forego a tiara and choose a piece of wedding statement jewelry as the finishing touch for your outfit.


A statement necklace can also be an affordable way to make a simplistic or vintage wedding dress look more luxurious. You can give the appearance of a designer dress without spending thousands of dollars with the right accessories.


What to consider when buying a statement bridal necklace

Should every wedding dress have a statement necklace? The answer is difficult. Several factors what type of statement necklace – if any – you should wear with your wedding dress.


Balance is the key to any bridal look. You want to focus on finding a necklace that pairs with your dress’ neckline. If you’re going all out with embellishments on your dress, you want a statement dress that is more simplistic in its design. Our ‘Darling Backdrop Necklaceis the perfect choice for more dramatic silhouettes and designs as its adjustable to suit your dress’ neckline while featuring various stone cuts.


If your dress is minimalistic and plain, you can get creative with a statement bridal necklace. Whether it’s satin, silk, or chiffon, an understated wedding dress gives you a virtually blank canvas to work with for your accessories. Our ‘Heavenly Teardrops Statement Princess Necklacepairs beautifully with a 1930s-inspired figure-hugging silk dress.


The other aspect you want to consider is your body type. If your dress features a belt or if you’re bustier, adding a large statement necklace could make you appear heavier on top. You want to elongate your frame and give your figure the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. Instead of a statement necklace, you might instead decide to wear a pair of Luxe Teardrop Earrings.


You also want to think of any other jewelry you’re planning to wear for your wedding day. Most brides choose jewelry as a way to add something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. If you have an heirloom piece that you’re planning on incorporating into your wedding look, choose a statement necklace style that complements it. Our ‘Darling Necklace – Royal Floral’ is the perfect partner for your grandmother’s pearl earrings or a silver brooch.


Which necklaces to wear with bridal necklines

Are you looking to add a piece of wedding statement jewelry to your bridal look? Read on to see our guide on the best statement necklaces for each dress silhouette.


  1. Strapless

A strapless wedding dress is the epitome of “less is more”.While you might be tempted to go all out with a colored stone or drop pendant, it’s best to keep your statement necklace more traditional. Our ‘Statement Princess Bib Necklace’ will shimmer against your dress’ simple neckline and add just the right hint of drama to your look.


  1. Sweetheart

A sweetheart neckline is one of the most popular – and romantic – bridal dresses. Just like a strapless dress, you want to choose a statement bridal necklace that sits close to your neck to balance your silhouette. If you’re going for a ballgown look, choose a sparkly statement necklace like our ‘Statement Topaz Heart Necklace’.


  1. Square neckline

When your wedding dress has a square neckline, it’s an opportunity to show off your décolleté and draw the eye to your bust. A round necklace is a perfect choice for adding a touch of sparkle to your look without distracting from your structured neckline. Our ‘Statement Tennis Necklace’ is effortlessly chic and is guaranteed to become a time capsule for your big day.


  1. Plunging neckline

If you’re being bold with a plunging neckline, don’t shy away from a statement necklace. Look for a style that adds length to your look. You want to find one that sits just above your neckline. An adjustable necklace length may be the right choice for you if you want the option of wearing your necklace again in the future. Our ‘Silver Statement Floral Necklacewill add a feminine flair to your plunging neckline.


  1. Halter neckline

The halter neckline is one of the most versatile of them all. It’s a classic choice for a sporty bride who wants a silhouette that is modest but shows off their natural figure. The difference with a halter neckline is that it sits higher than almost any other bridal style. You’ll want to choose a statement necklace that sits close to your neck, but you can have fun with different textures and gems, such as baroque pearls. Our ‘Art Deco Statement Pearl Necklace’ will give your classic bridal look a vintage feel.


  1. Open back

If you’re eyeing up an open-back bridal dress, you might not know where to start with accessories. That’s where our statement necklaces can come in. This silhouette is the perfect canvas for a long necklace or a strand of pearls that will bounce against your skin as they catch the light. You can add our ‘Rose Gold Elegant Teardrop Backdrop' to a simple pendant for a Hollywood-inspired look.
