2011 Bridal Style Inspiration: Stunning Statement Necklaces

By Azure Nelson, Published Apr 20, 2011

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?
