Pearl Jewelry for the Classic Holiday Bride

Most women have been dreaming about their wedding since they were little girls. They know what they will wear; the style of the dress, the veil and the beautiful jewelry that will adorn them for the finishing touch.

After dreaming of the perfect wedding all of their young lives, many women still want to be a classic bride. Selecting a classic style in the dress and also pairing it with beautiful pearl jewels will always be the right choice.

Selecting the right pearl length necklace for your dress will, of course, depend on the style of your dress and the neckline. Here is a guide that will help you find the right length to compliment your dress.

Choker: Usually a single strand of pearls that lay tight on your neck or collar. Great for higher neckline dresses.

Collar: This is made of three or more strands that fit securely around the neck lying at your collar line. This beautiful style looks lovely with a plunging neckline.

Princess:  This length falls below the hollow of the throat. You can find pearl necklaces in multi-layers in this length if you need a bit more definition to the pairing.

Matinee: This size hits the top your chest and looks great with a boatneck or jewel neckline. Check the length with your dress to make sure that it does not get lost and make sure there is not a lot of decoration on your dress.

Opera: This is a long single strand that falls below your chest.  You definitely need a slim style dress with this length, but it can be worn wrapped around your neck a few times for another great look. The Opera length is also great for wearing backwards if you have a plunging back and a high cut neckline. An amazing statement piece!

By pairing your pearls to your dress and neckline, you will find the classic bridal look that you have longed for.  Enjoy finding the perfect piece for your special day!
