5 Deep Necklace Designs for Low-Cut Wedding Dresses

So you’ve finally decided to go a little risqué with a low-cut neckline on your wedding day. Fabulous! Now, you just need to find a necklace that matches your daring neckline-- not quite the easiest bridal mission! Yet not to worry. It’s all about mastering the careful balance between finding the right decoration for your neck, while preserving the sexiness of your neckline. You don’t want to cool down the sizzle, right?

Here’s our most popular necklace favorites chosen by fashion-forward brides.

Queen of Hearts


Keep the things you love closest to you -- and by “things” we mean this gorgeous heart-shaped necklace. It catches everyone’s attention immediately due to its uniquely hollow outline, even though you’ll already be turning heads with that gorgeous low-cut dress! It’s seriously love at first sight, and we’re not talking about the groom.


Blue is Best


For the girl who isn’t afraid to stand out, colored gems are your best friend. Sapphire, a stunning blue gem, and Kate Middleton’s favorite rock, will give you that wow-worthy factor and your big day.

This circular pendant is a unique piece, best suited for the vintage bride, but with that sexy plunging neckline, it works well for the millennial era - you get the best of both worlds!


Keeping it Simple


Whoever came up with the phrase, “less is more” was a genius-- letting your natural beauty shine is way more tasteful than hiding behind heavy mounds and heaps of glitz. Every bride should take note.

Dainty necklaces like this precious piece match beautifully with bare necklines. Featuring dazzling diamonds encased in a teardrop shaped silhouette, it truly defines comes to style and simplicity.


Back to Black


Seeing as you’re already a bit of a daredevil, since you chose a cleavage-baring dress (tastefully, of course), you’ll have no problem taking your edge to the next level. Perhaps sporting black jewelry on your wedding day will spice things up? This subtle hint of black in this pendant necklace will create a dramatic contrast to your white dress, rebelling against the cliché of the all-white blushing bride.


Blinded by the Light


Last on our list, but certainly not least, is this radiant pendant glistening with more diamonds than you can count. Blindly bright with its clear-cut stones, it draws attentions to your face and bare neck. So, if your face wasn’t already glowing with excitement, your jaw-dropping necklace will surely light you up-- and the entire room!


Ultimately, you should find a piece that decorates you, while still preserving your bare decollete-- after all, that’s why you chose a dress with a low neckline, right? So, it’s all about balance. Your necklace shouldn’t be too noticeable and cover up your bareness, but it also shouldn’t reveal too much bust-- unless that’s the look you’re going for and in that case, kudos!  Take these necklaces ideas as inspiration for finding that special jewelry piece that matches your dress. Hopefully, it will be another match made in heaven!

Top Engagement Ring Styles for the Anti Girly Girl

So you're not a girly girl, but a woman through and through. While other ladies might be bedazzling themselves from head to toe in diamond earrings and extravagant bangle bracelets, you might be more of the hemp and beads type of gal. Not to worry! The thought of now having to wear a ring on your finger forever might freak you out a little, but you can relax with the help of Gottlieb & Sons. We promise it won't be pink or flowery. Deep breaths!


Bigger isn’t Always Better


There's a common misconception when it comes to engagement rings that the bigger the bling, the nicer the ring...and while there's nothing wrong with giant diamonds, these things just aren't for the tomboy type. But that’s not to say you can’t add a little sparkle without blinding everyone you wave at. Thin bands with diamond accents like this one can be just the right amount of glimmer you need to feel feminine without going over the top.


Something Sapphire


Just like it’s now totally acceptable to rock a pantsuit to work instead of a dress, you can wear a more subtle engagement ring that doesn’t scream girly girl. This gorgeous ring with sapphire accents is perfect for the woman who embraces the fact that she may not be all florals and frills, but she still has great taste in jewelry.


Shoot for Gold


The anti girly girl isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty, so choosing a ring with fewer details is a must. For every groove in your ring, that’s another minute you’re going to spend cleaning gunk out of it, and as a famous meme once said, “ain’t nobody got time for that”. If you’re the type of girl that also tends to appreciate quality over quantity, opt for a simple band with a beautiful center solitaire diamond like this one.


Three’s Company


One of the best things about the non-girly girl personality is that you’re practical. You’re not going to wear a skirt you can barely walk in, and you’re definitely not going to wear a ring that’s going to get caught on everything and get in your way. Choosing a ring with a smooth band and embedded diamonds like this gorgeous trifecta of awesomeness is exactly what you need.


Strikingly Solid


Does shopping for a ring make you want to tie up your running shoes and run for the hills? We promise there’s something for everyone, even the girl who isn’t a fan of all the fanciness. This gorgeous thick banded ring is strong and beautiful, just like its soon to be owner (lookin’ at you!).


It doesn’t matter if the other girls have always fantasized about their engagement rings-- sometimes the best decisions are clean-cut and practical, just like these options. Your ring can be simple and easy-to-wear, while still being as gorgeous as anyone else’s. You can truly have the best of both worlds!

Ring Styles for your Personality

So, your significant other listened to Beyoncé, and wants to put a ring on it?  Congrats!  But, are you now a little overwhelmed by the mission to find just THE perfect engagement ring?  Does it seem like Mission Impossible with so many options out there?  Well, the best strategy is just to relax and let your instincts (and maybe also your budget?) guide you.  Because ultimately, choosing the right engagement ring is pretty much an instinctive thing – you will likely be naturally drawn to designs that reflect your personality and taste, and you will know which ring should adorn your finger the minute you spot it.  It will be one of those Oprah’s “Aha” moments!




If you’re someone who chooses function over fashion, consider a solitaire set. With its classic simplicity, this setting evokes a subtle beauty—perfect for ladies who prefer taking a quieter approach to being fabulous. And best of all, it can easily match with your other jewelry pieces, making the art of coordination a delightful no-brainer.

If you’re a diva who likes to stand out from the crowd, there are plenty of contemporary designs available. Halo settings, where your stone is encased by a heavenly pillow of small diamonds, is hugely popular. You could also explore the different shapes of stones available, from circular to marquise.

If you’re still not sure, you can add some oomph with a mixed metal band, or a pop of color such as rose gold. Who says engagement rings can’t make a statement?

Elegantly complimenting your freshly polished manicure and designer clutch, you’ll be thinking, “I’m so fancy. You already know!” while sipping on your low-fat latte and reapplying your rouge lipstick.

Style 29707



For the foot-stomping bridezilla, glitz is the way to go! Jam-packed with high-quality diamonds, sapphires and a fat rock, you’ll join the exclusive club of A-list engagement rings.  While inexpensive (and totally brag-worthy), you can treat your finger like royalty, giving her a crown fit for Kate Middleton herself.

You can wear it alone as a stunning statement piece or go wild by matching it with other jewelry. Go bling or go home!

Style 28172



If you’re a bohemian or a romantic soul, you’re best to simply follow your heart. Ignore the trends, the hype and the pressure to be fashionable and choose a ring that genuinely speaks to you. It could be unique, quirky or vintage— walk your own line when it comes to finding the perfect design. This way, whatever you choose will make a natural accompaniment to your carefree style, whether you’re a guitar player, hemp wearer or completely addicted to sriracha.

Style 29794


There are, of course, a few other styles betwixt and between those mentioned here.  But the point is, to think about and settle on a handful of descriptors that feel true to your personality and style before you embark on your engagement ring quest.  And once you’ve armed yourself with this critical criteria, it shouldn’t be too long before you’ll be waving your left hand in front of your friends to the tune of their sincere “Ahhs” and “Wows”!
