Exquisite Day-Of Jewelry in the Cornelius, NC Area
The Perfect Balance
When picking a type of metal, look at your dress in natural lighting. If you're wearing pure white or something with hints of blue, a striking white gold will accentuate the unadulterated purity of the fabric. For gowns in champagne or ivory, yellow gold highlights the golden undertones. Anything with a rosy hue or iridescent sequins looks lovely with rose gold. If you've got a fabric sample of your dress, consider bringing that shopping with you to compare against hues of metal. Always remember that you want the jewelry and the dress to complement each other to attain the right balance of sophistication and elegance!
Something Old, Something New
Vintage-inspired jewelry is very in vogue, but you don't need to go digging through the unorganized chests at the antique store to find the perfect necklace to go with your great-grandmother's earrings. With fine jewelry available in a variety of patinas and vintage-inspired styles, you can find the perfect pieces of fine jewelry to go with a family heirloom, or shop for a completely new set of vintage-inspired earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. If you're wearing a piece of Mom's wedding day jewelry, remember to bring it in for cleaning or repairs before your wedding day! Morrison Smith Jewelers will gladly help you with both your something old and your something new.
What's the Color Scheme?
Depending on your wedding colors, picking jewelry with accent colors can really tie the whole thing together. Sapphires in various hues are perfect for blue or even yellow-themed celebrations, like those at the beach. Rubies are perfect for fall weddings accented by rich jewel tones. If you don't want to match your wedding colors but would love some nontraditional gemstones that shimmer and shine, consider iridescent opals or moonstone. Jade, emerald, or peridot will match any bouquet of greenery or outdoor wedding. Adding accent colors to your wedding day jewelry is a fabulous way to tie together your color scheme — especially for the times when you aren't holding your bouquet!
Jewelry for the Weekend Of
You're probably laser-focused on the big day, but don't forget about the rest of the weekend! From the rehearsal dinner to the after-party and everything in between, your jewelry is important the whole weekend long. A simple pair of pearl or diamond studs is the perfect go-with-anything accessory that you can wear for your bridal shower and rehearsal. It's fun to incorporate some of your color scheme into your jewelry with colored gemstones that you can wear with your bridal weekend attire: go for color with a breezy and relaxed necklace for brunch, and show off your sophisticated side with mysterious Tahitian pearl earrings at your rehearsal dinner. Choose pieces you can wear during your wedding weekend and on your honeymoon to get the most out of your new jewelry!
