Wedding earrings really came into their own after the Duchess of Cambridge wore her Robinson Pelham diamond acorn earrings. This gave confidence to brides everywhere that they did not have to settle for a pair of pearl or diamond studs.
It is best to choose your earrings after you have decided on your wedding hairstyle and your other accessories. You can then complement your look with your earrings.
Here are some ideas and advice to help you pick the perfect pair of wedding earrings…
Pretty Drop Earrings
Follow the Duchess’ example and go for a pair of drop earrings, and add a pretty pearl for added femininity.
Statement Chandelier Earrings
A lot of brides choose discreet earrings for their wedding day, especially if they are wearing their hair up. But if you are keeping the rest of your accessories simple a pair of statement earrings can add the wow factor. Chandelier earrings are very popular.
I also like simulated diamond sparklers like these. They’re perfect for black tie events and parties after your wedding, making them great value for money accessories.
Art Deco Designs
The fabulous Great Gatsby and other period dramas fuelled a love affair for the twenties, and there are some beautiful art deco wedding earrings available.
Clip-On Wedding Earrings
Don’t despair if you don’t have pierced ears – there are lots of fabulous clip-on earring designs out there. If you are not used to wearing earrings, wear them around the house so they’re comfortable on your wedding day.
On a final, practical note, a lot of cheaper earrings have nickel in them. If you are worried about allergies look for rhodium or silver plated earrings. Also, pierced earrings are not exchangeable due to hygiene regulations, so try to see them before you buy to make sure they are right for you.
