Wedding Jewelry By Theme by Urvi Tejani, Tejani Jewelry

My first rule of thumb when accessorizing gowns for my brides is to assess the dress! At this point, it's likely that your gown has already been inspired by your theme, so while the overall tone is important to maintain, you must first pay attention to the lines of the dress and embellishments to guide you in your search for the best jewelry.

I’ve selected some of the most popular wedding trends I curate looks for, with a few styling tips. Read on and see where your look fits!

  1. Rustic: When I think of rustic weddings, ruffles, ruching, light fabrics and simplicity come to mind. This style isn’t flashy, so your jewelry shouldn't be either. Balance your look with a slim bridal bracelet. The scalloped edges on this vintage-style bangle ($150) warm the look and add a girly touch.

  2. Modern: The new bride is fashion-forward and isn’t afraid to take a few risks – be it via color or silhouette – when choosing her wedding gown. Think the same for jewelry. Still, keep in mind the neckline and overall shape, although you don’t have to be matchy-matchy. My pick: these classic chandelier earrings ($125) that are totally fabulous and go with your gown.

  3. Indian wedding: Typically, in Indian culture, jewelry is matched to the sari. It’s big, bold, colorful and intricate, but most importantly it’s GOLD! Add a personal touch to your heirloom jewelry with a piece you love. My fave is this round statement necklace ($275).

  4. Art Deco: Art Deco is all about glamour in clean lines with structure and symmetry. Find jewelry that emulates the look of the gown, or if you’ve chosen a simplistic dress, go for these bold statement chandelier earrings ($120).

  5. Boho chic: This wedding style is feminine, flowing, earthy, yet elegant. Stay on trend and combine these elements with a floral headband instead of a veil. Talk with your local florist about using fresh flowers or opt for a metal keepsake, like this statement headband ($135).
