Prom is one of the most significant events in a teenager’s life. It is one of the few things that most of us remember from our high school experience, and it is something of a rite of passage as a girl transitions from childhood to adulthood.
Selecting a prom dress is a primary focus for many girls, and that decision can take a great deal of time and effort. Once the dress has been purchased, the next step is selecting the accessories.
Choosing prom jewelry is a great chance to play up aspects of the dress, and to put the finishing touches on your prom look. At Snow’s Jewelers, we are here to help you find just the right amount of sparkle for your special night.
Choosing a Style
The style of your prom jewelry should complement the style of your dress. Some girls will choose a classic look, and will wear a dress that has a timeless cut, fabric or fit. For classic dresses, the jewelry chosen should reflect the classic elements of design. Pearls are a great choice for some styles, and another option is a pendant that uses a single stone or an uncomplicated setting.
Be sure to consider the neckline of your dress when choosing your jewelry. It is important to select a necklace that is not obscured by the neckline.
For more contemporary dress styles, the jewelry can make more of a statement. Dresses that have an unusual or funky design will pair well with larger and more expressive pieces of jewelry. This is your chance to pick a necklace that has multiple stones, or earrings with a drop or hoop. Here again, it is important that your jewelry does not clash with the neckline of your dress.
Choosing a Color Scheme
Prom jewelry should accent your dress and makeup, not compete for attention. So, if your dress does not have heavy embellishments or a busy design, your jewelry can be bolder. If your dress contains heavy beading, ruffles, draping or other accents, you should choose jewelry in a simple design.
Prom season is right around the corner, and the team at Snow’s Jewelers is here to help you find the perfect pieces to accessorize your gown.
