Finally the return of necklaces! The bridal trend for so many years has been large chandelier earrings and a clean neckline. Even at Kleinfeld, our selection of necklaces was almost non existent?until recently. The end of this year’s fitting season launched a new and unexpected trend of chunky statement necklaces. From a faux vintage diamond necklace to layers of pearls, there’s a necklace for every dress and every bride.
If you’re dress is strapless and more simple, a necklace like this Haute Bride piece would look perfect. It’s a combination of pearl and swarovski crystal and mixture of different shaped filigree flowers.
Another option for a simple gown is this Maria Elena cabochon pearl V-shaped necklace with a ribbon tie back. This necklace would work well with a plunging or sweetheart neckline.
If your look is softer and more romantic, choose a fabric necklace such as this Meg Jewelry piece. This piece has 3 hand sewn silk flowers with crystal and pearl centers. It would look great with an organza or chiffon dress and especially for a spring garden or beach wedding. Although it is large in size it very light and comfortable to wear. The best part? The piece can also be worn as a headband!
A huge trend in necklaces is layers and layers of pearls or strands of crystals. This Erin Cole piece can work with many different style dresses and necklines. This would be a great piece to put on for the reception.
For those of you who don?t like pearl, this Ti Adoro crystal necklace is a great pick. It is smaller in size but still has enough sparkle and presence. It is made of large chunky swarovski crystals.
As always, remember proportions are more important then fashion. If you?re petite, a very large necklace may be overwhelming. Also, wear only one statement piece and ask to try on necklaces when you purchase your gown. Avoid a large necklace if you?re wearing a large tiara or headband. Try different pieces to see what looks and works best.
