Back Stage At The Reem Acra Fall 2015 Wedding Show
Jewelry is a fundamental part of a future bride’s wedding ritual. However, finding the right set is easier said than done. Apart from selecting exquisite jewelry, brides have to make sure that what they like also flatters their face and personal style. Personal taste, skin tone and face shape matter just as much as current trends. Bridal jewelry sets have to be purchased with extreme attention otherwise the bride risks making an investment that doesn’t match with her sense of fashion.
Here are some tips on finding jewelry that will make you look like a princess on your big day.
Know More About Your Face Shape
It’s fundamental that you understand what kind of face shape you have to be able to pick a set of wedding jewelry that flatters your complexion. To be sure that you’re making the right choice, first you have to assess your forehead.
Broader foreheads are perfect for women who like statement piece with precious stones; however, if yours is rather narrow, then you’d better stick to more discreet pieces.
Now let’s have a closer look at your ears. Women with big ears should stay away from earrings that are too bold and voluminous; these will accentuate the dimension, and you certainly don’t want that happening on your big day. If your ears are not complementing your face, then you might also want to let your hair down.

Matching Jewelry With The Dress
Future brides are extremely meticulous. They want to have the perfect dress, perfect hairstyle and make-up, and of course, perfect jewelry. However, all that is useless if you can’t have balance. There has to be fluidity when mixing all these things. The dress for example, has to go well with the jewelry. A beautiful white gown for instance, shouldn’t be adored with gold embellishments. Instead, you might want to consider platinum or pearls to match with the white gown.
Diamond-white dresses on the other hand, work great with silver and gold accessories, even rose gold if you’d like. But then again, if your gown is ivory, the best jewelry sets are the ones in warmer undertones of yellow. The creamy tint of your dress will match perfectly with discreet tones of gold.
Finding the perfect jewelry to go with your wedding dress, face, and personal sense of style seems like a real struggle. And yet, it’s not something impossible to achieve provided that you learn to create balance. Women with long, oval faces should consider statement sets made from a mix of materials and precious stones. However, if you have a rather chubby face with prominent cheekbones, discreet thin jewelry might seem like the best idea. In spite of current trends, always consider selecting jewelry that you like. Bottom line is, it’s your wedding day so you can do whatever you want and whatever you think it’s required to feel confident in your own skin.

Jewelry That Works With Your Skin
Metals are the easiest to select. They’re easy to divide into warm and cool categories too. If you have a pale tone, then you might want to go with silvery white metals such a platinum, white gold, silver, stainless steel or titanium. On the other hand, brides with warmer tones are advised to opt for metals in yellowish darker nuances of copper, brass, yellow gold, or pewter.
Selecting The Perfect Wedding Ring
Before jumping in and choosing the shiniest ring you can see in a jewelry store, you have to settle on a budget. Your next step is to decide on the metal, and last but not least on the model. Classic wedding rings are the best; they’re timeless and they’ll never go out of style. However, if you’re a fan of trendy rings, then you might want to know that this season is all about family crest signet rings, and vintage-inspired bands with a twist. As far as the material is concerned, platinum is one of the best choices you can make. However, you have to be aware the price. Platinum doesn’t come cheap; its greatest advantage is that it’s strong, long-lasting and enduring.
