What to Wear to Complement Your Engagement Ring
When you get engaged, you’ll certainly want to show off you ring as much as possible. Becoming engaged is a pretty big deal, so you’ll likely wear your beautiful ring every day. But did you know that you can actually accentuate your new bauble simply by augmenting your wardrobe to complement everything from the stone to the setting? Here are a few tips on how exactly to accomplish just that.
Dress for the Color
A rising trend in engagement rings is colored center stones. The reason for this growing trend is summed up perfectly by the pros at Front Jewelers, “While the perfect classic diamond is completely free of any color, many women prefer a hint of hue in their engagement ring to create visual interest and added beauty.” In some cases, women are opting for colored diamonds, while others are choosing semi-precious stones such as emeralds, rubies, and sapphires for the center stone.
If you are wearing a blue center stone, wear outfits in varying shade of pink to provide a contrast and make that blue stone pop. Various shades of blue can also compliment a jewel that has a deep blue hue. Lavender, yellow, and light green are also excellent colors to bring out the blue in your ring.
Conversely, if you have a red center stone, wear bold shades of green such as emerald and lime. Neutral colors also look great with red. Deep purples will complement a red gemstone as will apricot and lavender. Steer clear of most hues of orange, however, if you really want to make the color of your ring stand out.
Yellow and white diamonds look great with metallic hues such as silver and gold. Nudes and neutral colors also work well with yellow or white gemstones. Soft blues, pinks, and greens also set off a yellow or white jewel quite nicely.
Consider the Fabric
It might sound crazy, but certain types of fabric may also enhance your engagement ring nicely. Silk and cotton ensembles wear real nicely with a vibrant gemstone. Beware of complicated patterns, as they might take the spotlight off of your ring. Obviously, long sleeves that could cover your hand will take away from the sparkle in your ring.
Wear Other Jewelry
If you have a favorite bracelet, then wear it on your left hand. Gold bracelets of all hues will certainly draw attention to your engagement ring. Charm bracelets can also accent a bejeweled ring finger. Of course, a nice tennis bracelet with stones in colors that match your ring is also complementary.
If you intend on taking engagement pictures with your honey, these tips could prove helpful. Chances are that regardless of what you’re wearing, your ring will stand out to friends and family who wish to share in your engagement bliss. Still, there are several ways to dress to accentuate your engagement ring, but the main thing to remember is to simply have fun with it.
