If you’ve ever scoped out the jewelry in bridal boutiques, you’ve probably noticed most of the jewelry has a vintage feel. Looking for something modern? Go with an of-the-moment collar necklace in sleek metals, refined pearls and diamonds to look current. To find one that complements your wedding dress, consider your neckline. Strapless, scoop necks, off-the-shoulder, and v-neck are a good match, then mimic the tone and feel of your gown with one of the below.
