Not surprisingly, a sparkling engagement ring often takes center stage, but most wedding gowns call for another co-star on the big day: a necklace. Strapless dresses and open necklines transform a bride’s décolletage into a blank canvas made for a show-stopping accessory close to the heart. Whether an ornate diamond pendant, a strand of colored stones (something blue, perhaps) or heirloom pearls, the right necklace can pull everything together from head-to-toe and make a real statement. Bravo!
