diamond stud hoop earrings

The mother of the bride plays an important role in her daughter’s wedding journey, offering love, support and a calming presence throughout the planning process. On the wedding day, all eyes turn to the bride, but it’s a special day for her mother, too, and she also deserves to look and feel her best. Choosing the perfect outfit is just one piece of the puzzle. The right jewelry can elevate her look from beautiful to unforgettable.

However, choosing the perfect wedding earrings or necklace can be daunting. The jewelry shouldn’t compete with the bride’s ensemble, of course, but it should still enhance the mother of the bride’s beauty and overall look. Here’s a guide to help you find the perfect piece to make her shine!


1. Classic Pearl Studs

A timeless and elegant choice, pearl studs are universally flattering and work beautifully with various dress styles and formalities. They come in multiple sizes — from delicate and understated to more prominent and dramatic. And when the big day is over, the mother of the bride can wear her drop earrings as everyday jewelry.

2. Gemstone Drop Earrings

Add sparkle and sophistication with gemstone drop earrings. These earrings elongate the neck and create a sense of movement. This style is great for a formal wedding or a dress with a higher neckline.

3. Chandelier Earrings 

Chandelier earrings add drama and glamour to black-tie weddings. However, it is important to choose a style that complements the mother of the bride’s hairstyle and doesn’t overpower her face.

4. Delicate Pendant Necklace

A delicate pendant necklace featuring a single sparkling gemstone or meaningful charm adds personality without overwhelming the outfit. This versatile option works well with various necklines and dress styles.

5. Statement Necklace

A statement necklace is an easy way to elevate the mother of the bride’s look if her dress is on the simpler side. Consider a jeweled bib necklace for glamorous vintage vibes or a bold pendant with colorful gemstones for a modern look.

6. String of Pearls

You can't ever go wrong with pearls when it comes to weddings, and a single strand is a classic option that offers timeless elegance. Pearls come in various lengths, from short chokers to long, opera-length strands. When choosing the length, consider the neckline of the mother of the bride’s dress. 


7. Tennis Bracelet

A tennis bracelet adds understated luxury to any mother-of-the-bride outfit. This bracelet style features sparkling diamonds or gemstones, creating a timeless and elegant look.

8. Cuff Bracelet

A cuff bracelet is a great choice when you’re looking for a bolder statement piece. Cuff bracelets come in various widths and styles, allowing you to find one that complements the mother of the bride’s style and personality.

9. Bangle Bracelet(s)

Bangle bracelets are a simple and elegant option that can be dressed up or down. The mother of the bride could wear a single bangle bracelet or stack multiple bangles for a more layered look.

Caring for Jewelry

Proper care is essential to ensure jewelry pieces maintain their shine and longevity, especially when it comes to gold-plated pieces. Not sure how to clean gold-plated jewelry? It’s easier than you might think. Gently wipe the piece with a soft, damp cloth. Don't use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they could damage the plating. That’s all there is to it! 

Additional Tips

Shop early to find the perfect piece. The more time you have, the greater the chance of finding a piece that truly resonates with the mother of the bride’s style, so don’t wait until the last possible second to shop. Consider borrowing a special piece from a friend or family member. A vintage brooch or pair of heirloom earrings can add a sentimental touch to the mother of the bride’s look. Most importantly, choose jewelry that makes the bride's mother feel beautiful and confident on her daughter’s special day. Her inner glow and happiness will be the most radiant accessory she can wear.

Final Thoughts

The right jewelry is the finishing touch that elevates the mother of the bride’s look from beautiful to unforgettable. By considering her style, the formality of the wedding and the details of her dress, you can find a piece that complements her perfectly. There are no hard and fast rules. The most important thing is to choose jewelry that makes her feel confident and radiant as she celebrates her daughter’s special day.
