Statement jewelry

Alice Rich, an independent stylist with Stella & Dot, said she’s noticed brides looking for a splash of color to wear on their wedding day.
“Like if you got married on St. Patrick’s Day, they might wear green earrings,” she said. “I saw a picture the other day where a bride had on a navy necklace to match the dresses her girls wore.”
Rich said the pop of color gives brides the chance to add some personality to their wedding jewelry.
“You can always do pearls and that’s great, but you can add a little fun into it,” she said. “Younger brides are thinking about that more.”
Rich said brides tend to stay away from wearing large necklaces because they don’t want to compete with the top of their dress, so they are going for bracelets instead.
“Big, chunky, statement bracelets,” she said.
And jewelry gives brides the chance to add some flair to more traditional dresses, Rich said.
“It’s a way to stand out, and there’s no wrong answer,” she said.
