Wedding Jewelry Without Tradition: the Pear and Diamond Necklace

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

In the world of bridal jewelry, a delicate string of pearls is considered to be the most secure and conservative option. Tradition, on the other hand, is not something that every bride enjoys. A more glamorous and bolder bridal accessory, such as a pear-shaped diamond necklace, may be chosen by the bride who wishes to make an unforgettable style statement on her wedding day.

Forget about being subtle or conservative. Instead, channel Liz Taylor, whose most iconic piece of jewelry was the 68-carat Taylor Burton pear-shaped diamond, which is considered to be the most valuable diamond in the world. Taylor was regarded as one of Hollywood's most stylish and chic glam goddesses during her lifetime. She adored her jewelry, and she knew how to accessorize with gems in the most graceful and elegant manner.

In Taylor's opinion, pear-shaped diamonds enhance the collarbone, help to lengthen the neck, and create a stunning accessory that can be worn with any gown when worn as the focal point.

In the event that brides are still on the fence about ditching the pearls in favor of a pear diamond, here are a few ideas for how to style pear pendants for classic or more daring bridal beauty.

Pears Are A Classic, And This One Is Perfect

A pear-shaped diamond necklace is worn differently by different brides depending on their dress design—or, more specifically, the neckline of their dress. Rather than channeling the Liz Taylor mega-rock look while wearing a dress with a sweetheart neckline, choose a demure pear-shaped necklace to channel a delicate conservative look.

Instead, opt for a necklace with a smaller pear-shaped diamond as the focal point. The goal is to draw the viewer's attention to the neck without making an ostentatious display of it. Due to the fact that sweetheart necklines already draw attention to the bust, choosing a delicate necklace keeps the design tasteful and traditional.

When it comes to wedding gowns with a scoop neckline or a higher strapless bodice, a little more edge can make all the difference. Choose a pear diamond necklace that has a higher carat weight, or a pear diamond necklace that has a diamond or gemstone halo around the center stone. (Sapphires make an excellent "something blue" accessory!)

A halo enlarges the diamond's apparent size and creates a more dramatic effect than a solitaire. The design is still elegant and beautiful, but it attracts a little more attention.

Gowns with a bateau neckline provide more coverage around the bust area than other styles. Choose a pendant with a short chain so that the diamond hits the base of the neck right at the throat, and you'll have a dazzling neckline. This is not a true choker, but it comes very close in terms of style.

Liz-Inspired Luxuriousness

Bold and opulent are the best choices for the Hollywood glamour bride. Brides who want to be noticed, who do not want a traditional or conservative look, and who want to make a statement should opt for larger carat necklaces, which are more noticeable. When going big, keep in mind that the chain length is important.

Never allow the dress neckline and the pendant to appear to overlap in any way, no matter how large the carat size of the pear. Only the skin should be in contact with the diamond; no fabric should be used. In order to accommodate the weight of larger carat diamonds or pears with double halos for a more dramatic effect, choose a heavier chain to create a more balanced look by balancing the weight of the necklace.

Also keep in mind that diamonds are a timeless and elegant choice. Although the dress is heavily beaded and dazzled, the right diamond necklace will still look stylish and elegant when worn with it. Bold does not imply ostentatious. Experiment with different styles and carat weights until you find the necklace that complements your dress and your personal style.

No matter which pear-shaped diamond necklace you choose to wear on your wedding day, the classic tear-drop design of the pear is the ideal way to elevate the look to the next level of sophistication. Choosy brides can choose a pear for the perfect wedding necklace, enhancing their bridal beauty with Diamond Registry’s jewelry.
