Our 2018 wedding jewelry season officially begins with a post dedicated to, you guessed it, wedding guest jewelry.
Maybe you haven’t met your special someone yet, or maybe you already snagged yours years ago. If your summer is full of wedding invitations, you’ve got a lot of planning to do: even if you’re in the wedding party, your jewelry is up to you—and you want to look amazing without outshining the bride.
We’re here to help you be the most gorgeous guest at the reception, second only to the blushing bride herself. Who knows? With a stunning look, you might find your own love story—or make your beloved fall for you all over again.
Whatever your party-going goals this summer, we’re here to guide you in selecting the best pieces for every elegant gathering this sunny season.
Obviously, the most important rings at the wedding are in a pair, but your hands deserve a chance to shine, too. Between toasts, the reception, and dancing, there’s a lot of chances for your hands to grab attention with an elegant choice of rings.
Let’s start with this rose gold coil ring.
Going to a daytime wedding? The 18k rose and white gold pairing gives this ring a warm, mellow glow, and its settings, totaling 0.60cts of round diamonds, will catch eyes without being showy or trying to out-sparkle the happy couple.
This next ring is for those of you who love to let their color show. Someone who’s quite happy shining very brightly on their own, thank you very much. If this sounds like you, take a look:
Part of the Primavera Collection, the protagonist of this stunning cocktail ring is a multicolor flower made of 1.54cts of sparkling round diamonds, 3.52cts of exquisite pink round sapphires, and 1.80cts of bright round tsavorites.
You just can’t be shy if you’re going to wear this ring.
A little too extroverted for you? If you’re looking for something little more classic and understated, you need to have this white gold flower ring.
It’s the timeless shine of white gold and diamond- simple and elegant. What makes this ring stand out is the pear, marquise, and princess cut diamonds, expertly set to create the look of much larger stones set under a handcrafted 18kt white gold band. Whether or not you catch the bouquet, all eyes will be on your floral arrangement.
If we’re talking about catching eyes, there’s nothing more important than framing, enhancing, and showing your face—and that’s a job for the most flattering, elegant earrings.
Amazing Face-Framing Earrings
Thinking about keeping your look simple, gem-wise? Earrings are the way to go. No matter whose guest you are at the wedding, no matter the rest of your ensemble, you can complement any style with the right earrings.
For these picks, make sure to keep your hair out of your face, maybe in a flawless bun, a bullet-proof updo or a playful ponytail. We bet that even the bride will be dazzled by your choice.
“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” isn’t just for the bride.
If your destination wedding takes you to the ocean, these white gold drop earrings will echo the deep blue sea with their vintage style and rich, royal color.
These stunning 18kt white gold drop earrings feature 21.16cts of blue sapphires, which are surrounding 0.42cts of round diamonds in an elegant design. Wear these with your most simply flattering outfit—and let them do the talking!
If you’re headed to a more traditional wedding, but want to level up your look with more diamonds, how about showing off a pair of gorgeous drop earrings?
These earrings are made from 18kt white gold, but the real stars are the diamonds (as always!). They showcase a 11.37cts combination of round, marquise, and pear shaped diamonds in an elegant cluster design.
You’ll be able to wear this pair for years and years of wedding seasons—classic isn’t boring OR predictable.
Are you looking for something more vivid?
Our final pick for wedding guest jewelry is another face-framing favorite. This pair will let you bring the princess to the wedding—YOU! It doesn’t matter if the reception is taking place at a Michelin-rated restaurant or at the Plaza; wear these, and you’ll be rocking a look both stylish and regal.
These beautiful, face-flattering hoops showcase 12.94cts of black and white diamonds. The exquisite inside out diamond look and the signature setting with only two prongs securing the round diamonds, make them light and wearable all day long.
With the right dress—we recommend off the shoulder to avoid competing with the palette of these earrings—and the right dose of confidence, this pair will propel you to the top of the best-dressed list of any wedding you attend this summer.
