It goes without saying that the most important piece of jewellery at any wedding is The Ring – but the style-savvy bride knows that the best way to complete their look for the big day is with a pair of beautiful bridal earrings. The right style of earring will work with the hair and makeup to draw attention to the bride’s face, which is only fitting for the star of the show on her special day! If you’re trying to decide on the ideal accessories for your wedding for spring or summer, there are a few trendy and beautiful gemstone earring trends to choose from this season.
Pretty in Pastels
Perfect for a summer wedding or a daytime ceremony, pastel-coloured gemstones add a touch of delicate, muted colour to your wedding ensemble, keeping it soft and oh-so-feminine. The great variety of beautifully pastel-hued gemstones out there makes it easy to find the perfect pair of earrings to complete your look. Opals in nude or ivory tones work beautifully with a white wedding dress, and quartz stones can be found in a range of shades, from muted mint green to pale rose-pink.
Pearl jewellery is also an ideal choice, adding a pastel touch along with that beautifully on-trend “Golden Twenties” aesthetic we can’t seem to get enough of right now.
When it comes to weddings (or anything really, let’s be honest), diamonds will never go out of style. The popularity of fancy colour diamonds is on the rise, and sunny yellow shades are proving to be among the most popular in this sparkling spectrum. It’s a current favourite among celebs, and we’ve spotted our fair share of lemon-hued and canary-coloured engagement rocks flashing from famous fingers… this is another great choice of gemstone for a spring or summer wedding.
Emerald isn’t the only shade of green in the spotlight this year; Pantone also listed Tender Shoots among the top ten most fashionable colours for spring 2013, and you can easily add this bright, fresh colour to your look with a pair of peridot gemstone earrings.
Of course, you needn’t be walking down the aisle to wear these beautiful accessories – they’re perfect for a maid of honour or wedding guest as well. Just be sure not to steal the spotlight from the bride!
