Statement earrings are everywhere, from the Fashion Week runways to the pages of Vogue and on your stylist friend next door, but they can be intimidating! We brought in expert jeweler Melissa Lovy to provide tips for finding the perfect statement earrings for the big day!
- Focus on one main piece and build from there – If you decide to go with statement earrings, let them be your one big piece and make sure that all other jewelry is more subtle. You don’t want to wear overstated earrings and a large necklace. It could look gaudy or distracting.
- If you’re worried about weight, go with a statement stud – Statement studs will provide a punch without weighing down your ears. Statement studs are great for higher necklines and long nights of dancing.
- Try a dressed up hoop – Hoops are a great option as they frame your face without taking away from the dress. They also can be worn after the wedding, as they transition well from day to night!
- Statement earrings don’t need to break the bank – You can find beautiful statement earrings for under $200. Look for earrings made with Swarovski crystal – they shine just as much as diamonds but won’t blow your budget!
