Choosing the Right Wedding Earrings – Your Personal Style


Start with what you feel most alive and present with. Select an earring that best reflects your personal style.

Classic Elegance: Wedding Earring Styles 

Stud Earrings: For an understated look, select stud earrings for weddings. They offer subdued sparkle without overpowering your ensemble, making them suitable for both daytime and evening affairs. Stud earrings are a tasteful choice when your dress is very loud, colorful or ornate. They will balance out your look. Just make sure that they sparkle, otherwise they will be lost in the backdrop.

Drop Earrings: If you seek sparkle that is close to the earlobe, then drop earrings are the appropriate choice. They are not long, but if they are both a dangle and a drop earring will move along with you as you dance.

Hoops: Hoop earrings are arguably the most versatile form of earring. Dress them up or down depending on the metal and stones. They also have a youthful charm about them. For a wedding, choose larger hoops embellished with brilliant diamonds or sapphires for a more striking, sparkling look.

  • Consider Your Dress Neckline: The neckline of your dress plays a crucial role in determining the style of earrings that will complement it best. For example, if you’re wearing a strapless gown, chandelier earrings can beautifully frame your face and add the necessary drama to your look. 
  • Hair Up or Down?: The hairstyle you choose also influences your earring selection. If you’re wearing your hair up, consider dangle earrings or hoops that can take center stage. The rule is that when your hair is up, choose a more dramatic earrings.

Matching Metals and Gemstones

  • Metal Tones: When selecting earrings, consider the metal tones that best complement your skin tone and overall aesthetic. Whether you prefer yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold, choose the color that will best enhance your features. You want to show up as your most glamorous self. 
  • Gemstone Selection: From brilliant diamonds to vibrant sapphires and emeralds, choose gemstones that match your outfit. Don’t wear green emeralds with an orange dress! There is an unwritten fashion rule that your jewelry cannot clash with your attire. And of course, remember that diamonds go with everything. 

Tone and Formality – Remember to Check the Invitation

An invitation to a wedding will always include the expectations for attire. Listed from dressiest to the most casual, the following are the general calls for formality for an occasion: Black-Tie, Black-Tie Optional (formal), Cocktail (slightly less formal), Semi-formal, and Festive. When it comes to your jewelry, whether it be earrings or otherwise, unless you really exaggerate by wearing something from one end of the spectrum at the other, there is a substantial amount of wriggle room.

What’s important is just not to do something blatantly tacky like wear fashion silver earrings to a Black-Tie wedding or enormous chunky diamond earrings at a Festive toned-wedding. It’s the obvious mis-matching of tone and formality that you need to avoid. Fortunately, unless you really do something extreme, it’s hard to make a significant fashion faux-pas.
