Choosing Prom Jewelry

The night that you’ve been dreaming of for years is finally arriving. Now, you just have to make one last decision. Choosing prom jewelry can be difficult, but we have some great tips to make it easy.

There are a few factors that will influence your decisions when it comes to choosing prom jewelry. The first one is your dress. Depending on the style of your prom dress, you may want to go more minimal with the jewelry or you may want to really play up the jewelry if your dress is more on the simple side. For a dress that has a lot of bling and sparkle towards the top of the dress, go with earrings and a nice bracelet, but forego the necklace. You don’t want anything that will detract or try to compete with the sparkles on your dress. If you have a dress that has a v-neck, a necklace is the perfect addition to the plunging neckline. If your dress is a more simple cut, opt for a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. This way, you will shine, even if your dress doesn’t have a lot of embellishments.

Depending on the hairstyle you’ve chosen, you may want to take that into consideration as well. Dangle earrings look beautiful with an updo but can get tangled up in your hair if you leave it down. You also never want to mix dangle earrings with a necklace, as it can be too much near your neck. If your hair is a half up/half down style, you can choose from several different earrings, whether it be studs or drop styles.

Finally, choose based on the color. When it comes to choosing prom jewelry, you can choose clear crystals that will give the appearance of beautiful diamonds or you can go matching, and get a few pieces that match your dress or pull a specific color from your dress if it’s a printed piece. Pearls are also always a classy option for any prom look and come in a variety of colors. The most important tip to remember is to be comfortable. You don’t want to be fiddling with your jewelry all night, so make sure you are comfortable with any of the pieces you wear.
