These 4 Tips Will Help You Pick the PERFECT Necklace for Your Wedding Look

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

If you are like most brides-to-be, you want to look nothing less than flawless on what is meant to be the most amazing and unforgettable event of your entire life.

Here at Adorn, we understand that better than anyone – and we also understand that a bride’s look is not about her dress only. That is, of course, a very important element – but the bridal accessories she wears can completely change her style. Even the simplest, most basic wedding gown can be instantly uplifted by the right accessories.

And, in most cases, the bridal accessory suite includes a necklace as well.

How to make sure you choose one that suits you from every point of view? Read on and find out more.


  • The dress neckline. Before you jump into any kind of necklace search, consider your wedding gown neckline. This is one of the single most important elements to think of when looking for the right necklace. For instance, an open neckline (e.g. a U-neckline) will look fantastic with a statement piece on it. A heart-shaped neckline will most likely look best with something simpler, such as a dainty necklace. And a high neckline or halter top will probably look best with no neckline at all (although even in this respect, there are daring brides who make a statement by choosing to wear a necklace).
  • The color. Yes, you will most probably wear white on your wedding day – but despite what some people may think, white does come in multiple shades. A warm shade (such as champagne) looks best on warm-toned skin and is best paired with yellow gold jewelry. A cool shade (such as ivory) looks best on a cool-toned skin and is best paired with platinum, white gold, and even rose gold (which might actually work for both skin types).
  • The measurements. Your neck’s width will decide the width of your chosen necklace (e.g. a choker should be about two inches larger than the neck width, but a pendant necklace will have to be at least four inches larger). Furthermore, your actual height can influence how a necklace looks on you (for instance, if your height is below 5’4”, you might want to make sure your necklace isn’t longer than 16 to 20 inches because anything longer than that might look slightly overwhelming for your height and frame).
