What Kind of Jewelry to Wear with a Black Dress

Choosing jewelry for your black dress may seem overwhelming. There are so many choices you might ask where to even begin. We will discuss what kind of jewelry to wear with a black dress depending on the neckline and the occasion.

What Kind Of Jewelry Do You Wear With A Black Dress?

Nothing defines a fashion classic as well as a little black dress. The black dress has been known to be universally versatile, incredibly charming, and absolutely flattering. This dress has become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, however it also needs the correct jewelry to compliment the dress.

Black dresses are able to be worn to formal events and also not so formal occasions based on the jewelry that is paired with it. You may be asking where do I even start, don’t stress because we have you covered. A few things you might want to consider when choosing your jewelry is the neckline and the occasion.

What Is The Neckline?

If the black dress has a v-neckline you are going to want to choose a piece of jewelry that reflects the same v-neckline. That would be matching a longer necklace like a pendant. For a scoop or square neckline you will choose a necklace that is shorter than your neckline. A diamond choker could be a fun choice or a shorter pendant necklace.

If the black dress happens to be strapless you will want to skip the necklace to make your neck and shoulders really stand out. Instead you would choose a pair of bold chandelier diamond or gemstone earrings for a dramatic look. For a halter-top dress you would pair beautiful cuff or bangle bracelets since the halter will replace the need for a necklace.

What Is The Occasion?

A formal event is the perfect occasion to pull that black dress out of your closet. You could go for the classic Audrey Hepburn look and match a pearl necklace with a pair of pearl earrings for a classy combination. If you are looking for a burst of color try adding a pair of gemstone chandelier earrings. Or you can always stay with the classic theme and add diamond jewelry.

If you are planning on wearing your black dress for a casual occasion you are going to always want to lighten things up with colors. This can be done by adding turquoise or coral jewelry for a pop of color. Another fun way is to layer bangles or choose a cocktail ring for a flirty casual look.

No matter what jewelry combination you choose it is hard to go wrong with a stunning black dress. The Diamond Reserve is here to help give us a call at 303.385.8449 or click here to book your appointment!
