This year, celebrity weddings made huge headlines. From Kim Kardashian’s top-secret ceremony in France to Lauren Conrad’s bridal elegance, tabloids and fans alike couldn’t seem to get enough of this year’s bridal style. The elaborate celebrity nuptials all boasted gorgeous locations and breathtaking designer gowns, but they also highlighted something else: jewelry trends. Although the wedding dress is often considered the star of the show, the truth is that without proper accessorizing, the dress wouldn’t be able to look its best. Follow in the footsteps of Hollywood’s leading ladies to ensure your bridal jewelry is on trend.
1) Lauren Conrad
Conrad married her longtime boyfriend in September and the ceremony was simply perfect. From gorgeous flowers to laughing bridesmaids, the day seemed to go off without a hitch. Of course, the other perfect element was Conrad’s wardrobe. Conrad walked down the aisle in a stunning lace gown that was designed by Mark Badgley and James Mischka. For the reception, Conrad changed into yet another flawless full-length gown. Although Conrad kept her jewelry to a minimum during both the ceremony and reception, she did wear an understated yet elegant necklace. Although small, the necklace added a touch of sparkle and personalization to the ensemble. To recreate Conrad’s bridal jewelry, try the Starlight Pendant in Diamond.
2) Jessica Simpson
America’s longtime sweetheart also said “I do” this year and her dress was simply divine. Designed by Carolina Herrera, the gold embroidered strapless dress fit Jessica Simpson perfectly. Equally swoon-worthy were Simpson’s earrings. Simple yet dramatic, the bride’s teardrop earrings brought the entire look together and added an extra bit of sparkle to Simpson’s already glowing face. Paired with a halfback hairdo, Simpson’s jewelry choices were truly pristine.
3) Kim Kardashian
It was hard not to notice that Kim Kardashian walked down the aisle this year. It seemed that every news outlet in the world was obsessed with the Kardashian-West nuptials and it’s easy to see why. Kardashian looked breathtaking from head to toe on her wedding day, and her jewelry was no exception. Rocking diamond stud earrings, Kardashian’s subtly slicked back hair and lace sleeves were perfectly complemented. Because she wore an intricate dress, stud earrings were the perfect choice for the new Mrs. West.
