We already revealed the gorgeous Spring 2012 Rivini wedding dresses
, but who knew Rivini's creative director Rita Vinieris was a jewelry pro, too?!
These statement bridal necklaces
are definitely fit for a queen and
a princess-to-be (aka Kate Middleton
). The stunner in photo two is especially royal
, don't you think?
While all the necklaces are high on glamour and drama, each piece appeals to a different type of bride, from modern to romantic. But remember— these aren't called statement necklaces for nothing. If you choose to don such a strong statement piece, keep these three bridal style tips in mind:
1. Wedding dress neckline
: If your bridal gown
has a high neck or embellished neckline, a statement necklace probably isn't right for your wedding day style. Statement necklaces look best with strapless
and sweetheart necklines
2. Don't over-accessorize
... and let your statement piece make a statement!
3. Wedding hairstyle
: all-down loose locks vs. a classic bridal updo? Statement necklaces look best with sleek wedding hairstyles
. So if you're thinking a statement necklace is right for you, choose an updo like a chignon, ballet bun, or high-volume ponytail. You'll want a style that pulls your hair back so the statement necklace can really shine.
Which one of these statement necklaces makes you swoon?
