While your gown may be the focal point of your entire look on your wedding day, it's not the only thing that matters. That's because the right accessories have the ability to enhance your overall style, make you look more put together, and give you a chance to show off your personality. Meaning, brides should put special thought and consideration into their bridal jewelry, especially when it comes to their earrings- Brides Magazine

One could argue that bridal earrings are an equally (if not more) important day-of detail. They are, after all, the sole jewellery piece that will frame a bride’s face. The challenge is not to over-accessorise and to choose key pieces that will pull together your look. You don’t need to look or feel overdone and earrings are the perfect alternative if you don't want to wear a headpiece or veil. Here are our Top 6 pick of earrings styles for your big day!


Stud earrings will typically feature a gemstone (like a diamond) and will fit snuggly on your earlobe with no dangling. They are minimalist and simple and they don't hang down, so they're comfortable for every occasion. Try our Daphne earrings for an uncomplicated classic addition to your dress.

Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier earrings are glamorous and fun, they hang down from your earlobe around 5 or 6 cm. But unlike dangle earrings, chandelier styles are wider and more elaborate and sometime include diamonds, pearls or semi precious stones. They elevate your look to give a more formal feel, just right for black tie weddings. Try our Carter luxury diamond drop earrings for a touch of sparkle or our Diptyque earrings for a softer botanical feel.

Drop Earrings

Drop earrings will fall past your earlobe slightly, but don't move when worn. They have an elegant look and work with almost all dresses. Try our Astor Asscher Cut Earrings.

Teardrop Earrings

Teardrop earrings are similar to drop earrings, but they fall a little lower and the gemstones or pearls featured on this accessory are shaped like a teardrop. They lend a romantic and timeless feel to any bridal style. Try our Thalia or Vermeer earrings for a luxurious yet effortless look.


One of the most popular earrings of the moment, huggies are mini hoops that fit closely to your earlobes. They are a neat and modern style that suit simplistic gowns. Try our Boughton huggies or Nala huggies for a touch of understated chic.

Dangle earrings also hang down past the earlobe, although they are usually longer than drop earrings. These styles are typically slender and sleek with some movement to them. Our Beatrix earrings are the perfect dangle earrings with both silk bows and pearls or our Narin drop earrings for sparkle and shimmer.

Things To Consider.....

Your bridal hairstyle, wedding dress and neckline should all be taken into consideration when selecting bridal earrings. These elements will affect the overall look and feel of your wedding style.

  • A low V or backless dress will handle chandelier or drop earrings more effectively than say a high lace neckline where it may appear fussy or complicated.

  • High lace necklines suit smaller studs for an elegant touch or very delicate pear drop styles.

  • Off shoulder styles work particularly well with drop or stud earrings for a clean and open aesthetic.

  • Longer dangle earrings with an illusion neckline will elongate the neck and also frame any details that might be appliqued to the neckline or sleeves.

  • Sweetheart necklines generally tend to be the most versatile style to accessorize, giving you the freedom to be really playful with your choice of earrings - From statement chandelier styles to the daintiest of studs or drop styles.

Your bridal hairstyle should also be based on the neckline of your dress, your personal style and what will feel the most comfortable on your wedding day. If you don’t like to expose your neck or shoulders , there’s no reason why you should feel the need to wear your hair up on your wedding day. In addition, there’s no reason why you can’t wear long drop or chandelier earrings if you choose to wear your hair down A half up hairstyle or swept to the side style give you the option to still wear your hair down and accessorise with larger earrings.
