Planning the Perfect Prom Look

So, exams are over, school is nearly finished and it's Prom time. Whether it is you planning for a very memorable and special night or you are helping you daughter – we know you want everything to be perfect. I am sure you will have had your dress planned for a long time but what about the finishing touches?

Choosing your jewellery can be one of the most difficult decisions to make when planning how to style your dress. You want to look elegant and effortless whilst also making your entire outfit work together. The trick is to pick one statement piece that works well with your neckline and choose subtle accessories for the rest of your look. When styling a dress always try to think “less is more”. Choosing the perfect jewellery can make or break an outfit, so we are here to help you pick out the very best designs for your neckline.  

Sweetheart Necklines  

When you opt for a sweetheart neckline your best bet is to choose a statement necklace - just make sure the necklace doesn’t fall below the top of the dress. You can have a lot of fun experimenting with contemporary on trend necklaces – or why not go for the timeless elegance of the vintage look with our fabulous Waterfall Necklace. Pair it with some simple cubic zirconia studs to complete your look.   


When you’re wearing a deep v-neck dress, go for a long drop necklace to accentuate the beauty of the neckline. Our stunning Twenties Style Drop Necklace would be perfect and complete your look with our long Party Drop Earrings -  this is the perfect jewellery choice that combines sparkle and subtle sophistication. 

High Necklines  

We wouldn’t recommend wearing any necklace with a high neckline as it will draw attention away for the dress itself.  But you can go over the top with some glitzy long statement earrings and  a bling bracelet which wouldn’t look out of place on the red carpet. Try our Classic Elegance Drop Earrings and Graduated Cubic Zirconia Bracelet. All our cubic zirconia jewellery is designed in sterling silver which is rhodium plated and set with the best quality AAA* cubic zirconias – almost indistinguishable from fine diamond jewellery. 

Scoop Necklines 

A scoop neck is the easiest dress style to accessorise as you can choose from a wide variety of jewellery styles – depending on how low the scoop goes, you can pick the perfect piece to accentuate the neckline. We recommend our simple little Pom Pom Pendant or for something more extravagant try our CZ Cluster Necklace.  Add a pair of our Glitzy Girl Earrings and your look is complete. 


So you’re all ready now – dress, jewellery, hair and make-up – so go and have an amazing and memorable evening.
