Top Tips For Finding The Perfect Jewelry to Make Your Quinceañera Dress Pop!

You’ve finally found the perfect dress for your quince and now it’s time to accessorize. First up, jewelry! Figuring out the type of jewelry that will flatter both you and your dress most can be a challenge, but we’re here to help and make sure you have fun while doing it.


Here are our top tips for finding your dress’ perfect jewelry match.

Shop Small

Next, it’s time to decide where to shop. When we say shop small, we don’t mean go with a small piece of jewelry (unless that’s your style, of course!). What we mean is, seek out small, locally-owned shops or one-of-a-kind online stores like Etsy, or an online auction house like Invaluable.

Etsy is the perfect place to connect with makers who can craft a customized piece, while Invaluable gives you a great opportunity to place a bid on vintage jewerly. You won’t be able to find anywhere else. Choosing one of these routes over more common retailers will make sure that your look is truly unique, and that you’ll end up buying something no one else has. If you’re working with a much smaller budget, consider looking in your mom’s or grandmother’s jewelry box! Wearing family jewelry is a beautiful homage to both your family and your heritage, making your day that much more special.

Ask the Fashion Experts

If you’re at a loss for what kinds of jewelry match the kind of dress you’ll be wearing, do a little research. What kinds of pieces are trending? What do the experts say goes well with your dress’ silhouette, neckline, and sleeves? What about the color?

For example, many fashion writers agree that certain metals look better with certain colors. Some general pairings include:

  • Ivory and gold
  • Pure white and silver, platinum, or pearls
  • Diamond-white and yellow gold, rose gold, silver, or pearls

There are also plenty of helpful jewerly charts that help you decide things like which kinds of pieces (necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc.) go best with various necklines.

Don’t Overshadow Yourself

Sometimes, less is more. You don’t want to outshine the stand-out features of your dress, but more importantly, you don’t want what you wear to steal your show. The focus should be on you, and if you get too carried away, what you’re wearing can end up wearing you instead. If you find yourself getting overwhelmed or feeling like there’s too much going on, don’t be afraid to scale back and keep it really simple. Find one piece you adore and keep it at that, or go with something classic.

Listen To Your Heart

At the end of the day, your quince is a celebration of you, and just like your dress, your jewelry should reflect who you are as a young woman. Think about the things you love most about yourself, and keep those personality traits in mind when browsing. Which pieces really seem to call out to you? Which pieces bring you joy when you think about wearing them? Let your own feelings about what you like guide you to the perfect jewelry for you.
