If it is a daytime wedding, the colors should be more vibrant. We can choose colors such as aquamarine, fuchsia, and white or mix them all. The Pink Zircon Stone Solitaire Drop are the perfect earrings for modern bridesmaids.

These elegant earrings for a bridesmaid will look great with a fuchsia pink wedding dress, try them and you'll be right!

Or, on the contrary, we can choose a simpler and more concealed option such as the Golden Round Chain Studs earrings, which will be appropriate for the vast majority of outfits and weddings. To continue giving a different touch to the dress, the bridesmaid can opt for accessories in gold tone. Also, you can choose the same color earrings as your bridesmaid dress.

However, we want to recommend a special color for your bridesmaid look: red. This color is very popular among the bridesmaids. Combine your dress like the popular bridesmaids in red with our most elegant earrings: the Mercury Drop earrings.

What long earrings should a bridesmaid wear? Well, the earrings for a traditional bridesmaid are usually not very long (no more than 4cm or so) to prevent them from standing out too much. To give you an idea, Silver with White Circle earrings, which are also perfect for an afternoon or evening wedding, would be the ideal size if you were going to a classic wedding.

On the other hand, if it is a civil wedding such as a beach wedding you can opt for more striking earrings. Long earrings are increasingly seen in bridesmaids. Meteorite Drop earrings would be a very good option. These earrings have an original and different design, but at the same time, they are sophisticated and will bring elegance to your wedding look.


Elegant bridesmaid earrings according to hairstyle

If you are wearing an updo, your earrings will be the center of attention much more than if you are wearing a flower tiara, a loose hairstyle or any other type of accessory. So make sure you choose the earrings that you like the most and suit your bridesmaid dress. Remember that the accessories should not eclipse the eyes focused on the bride.

For updos, we recommend using smaller earrings, such as climbers. The Silver Snake Studs earrings are perfect for a wedding. This silver climber and we are sure that it will give a lot of light to your face.

Plus, you can make the perfect match, creating the most ideal bridesmaid jewelry set by combining the Silver Snake Studs earrings with the Half Eternity Moissanite ring and Silver Serpentine necklace.

Finally, we want to make a special mention of pearls. Pearls are a material that combines perfectly for a wedding look both day and night. The pearl earrings are a classic accessory that never goes out of fashion.

We are seeing more and more pearl accessories for bridesmaids, so here are our proposals:


Finally, look for the balance between bridesmaid accessories

Both the bridesmaid earrings, such as pendants, bracelets, or rings, should match. But not only between them, but also with the rest of the accessories of your look, such as your shoes or your bag. Do not be obsessed with trying to choose the same colors and details in all the accessories, but it is very important that you can create a balance.


At a wedding, the bride will always be the protagonist, but that doesn't mean that the bridesmaid should not be elegant, beautiful, sophisticated, or go unnoticed. Are you ready to be the most elegant bridesmaid on the planet?
