So, what accessory trends are on deck for the 2024 wedding season? We spoke with jewelry expert and VP of Merchandising at Brilliant Earth, Annie Chen to get the scoop. "This year, bridal fine jewelry will be led by clean, classic styling with diamonds and a touch of pearl," says Chen. "We're seeing an emergence of drop earrings as a new way to add sparkle to the bridal look." When it comes to necklaces, Chen has also observed a movement away from heavy neck styling, and continued momentum behind tennis and bezel styles.

While many brides are choosing to keep things classic when it comes to necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, it seems the opposite is true when it comes to rings. According to Chen, nontraditional styles, such as chunky ring stacks have recently become a major bridal accessory trend. "Wedding band stacks allow for mixing and matching of different styles such as luxe fancy cut eternities, wide plain metal bands and classic diamond bands. Including a broad range of styles in your stack creates dimension, interest, and personality," Chen says. "We're seeing some customers forego the traditional look, in some instances even wearing these stacks in lieu of an engagement ring."

Where to Buy Wedding Jewelry

"Investing in the purchase of bridal jewelry gives you a physical reminder of your special day for years to come—many of these pieces end up becoming family heirlooms and passed down to future brides through the years," says Lorraine Brantner, gemologist and sales manager at James Allen. "It is an additional expense to consider, so you may want to select a style that works for other occasions."

There are endless places to shop for your wedding jewelry—which is why we recommend setting a budget first. It will help inform your search and lead you to retailers within your price range. You can also get creative with the different items you're purchasing. For example, perhaps you want to get your necklace from a luxury jeweler but prefer simpler earrings. Not sure where to start your search? Read on for more expert advice, plus some of the best bridal jewelry websites.

For Gold Wedding Jewelry

Most well-known jewelers carry an abundance of gold jewelry options, including, most likely, the one you purchased your engagement ring from. "If you are satisfied with how your engagement ring and wedding band turned out, it is a great idea to stick to the same place because you will be guaranteed a certain level of quality and craftsmanship," says Olivia Landau, founder and CEO of The Clear Cut. "In terms of aesthetics, working with the same place can help ensure that your wedding jewelry will be complimentary to your engagement ring and wedding band." Plus, if your jewelry needs any repairing or cleaning down the line, you can take it all to one place.

For Silver Wedding Jewelry

When shopping for silver wedding jewelry, similar advice to the above applies. If you love the quality and craftsmanship of your engagement ring or wedding band, you should consider making it a set by buying pieces from the same jeweler. A few of our favorite retailers to shop for silver jewelry include James Allen, David Yurman and Brilliant Earth.

For Simple Wedding Jewelry

Because simple jewelry is so popular, most jewelers carry a selection of pared-down styles within their inventory. Talk with an in-store stylist to explore your options regarding simple wedding jewelry. Be sure to ask about pieces that can be re-worn after the wedding. For minimalist styles that you'll love for a lifetime, you can't go wrong with Mejuri and VRAI.

For Unique Wedding Jewelry

Unique wedding jewelry can be found in the places where you least expect it. Try exploring your local antique shop or flea market for vintage treasures. Sites like Etsy and eBay are also great places to find unique pieces of jewelry from independent boutiques (and not to mention, that you're supporting small businesses in the process). If you're looking for something a bit more modern, we love the eccentric styles available at Catbird and Chan Luu.

For Affordable Bridal Jewelry

Here's the deal: Wedding jewelry can be expensive. If you don't wear necklaces, earrings, or bracelets regularly, you might want to rent your jewels instead. "Renting your jewelry is a great idea if you do not wear jewelry often or you want to experience the luxury of higher-end items that are typically out of budget," Brantner says. "Of course, the items will need to be returned, but the special moment can live on in memory and photos."

It's also a budget-friendly option. "If you know that you will only wear a specific piece for one special occasion and never again, you will save a lot of money by renting," Landau says. However, there are some drawbacks to renting your wedding jewels. "Jewelry can hold a lot of sentimental value and this is especially true for wedding jewelry," Landau says. "You may want to hold onto your wedding jewelry after wearing it to pass it down—wedding jewelry has a story and a special emotional moment tied to it."

If you're leaning towards renting your wedding jewelry, you have several options. There are companies dedicated to rentals, like Happily Ever Borrowed, Verstolo, and Switch. But many jewelry retailers offer rentals, like The Clear Cut.

For Men's Wedding Jewelry

Bling isn't just limited to brides. There are plenty of stylish options for men too. Head to our roundup of men's jewelry brands to discover the best places to shop, plus editor-approved styles for every kind of groom.

Wedding Jewelry FAQs

Have questions? We have answers. For even more expert advice, check out our guide on how to choose wedding jewelry.

How much should I expect to spend on wedding jewelry?

The short answer: It depends. If you're looking for something simple to sport on the day of, there are plenty of affordable options you're sure to love. However, if you plan on keeping your wedding jewelry as heirloom pieces, and potentially passing them down to loved ones, you might want to opt for more elevated pieces. That being said, the cost will look a little different for every bride.

How can I save money on wedding jewelry?

The cost of wedding jewelry should be factored into your overall wedding wardrobe budget (which varies from person to person). If you're planning on splurging on accessories, you might consider choosing an affordable wedding dress to stay within your budget. Alternatively, if the cost of your gown doesn't leave you with much room in the budget for accessories, you can always rent your wedding jewels to save a bit of money.
