Pageant Jewelry: What to Wear, When to Wear it

How to Pick the Best Pageant Jewelry How to Pick the Best Pageant Jewelry

In the world of glitz and glamour we have been taught that bling is always a good thing.  Look at some of the shoes on The Pageant Planet’s pinterest if you have any doubt that we are bling-aholics, but is there such a thing as too much? When it comes to wearing jewelry the decision is a personal one but there are some rules of thumb that should be followed. Below is a breakdown of specific types of jewelry and when to, and not to, wear them.

Earrings

Earrings are appropriate for every aspect of a pageant depending on the type you wear. Pearls look great for interview or really anytime you are on stage. Studs are stunning for intro, casual wear, swimsuit, and talent. Chandelier earrings work well anytime you are wearing a gown or cocktail dress so think of them when preparing for intro, talent, evening wear, or anytime you are on stage wearing your gown. Bracelet earrings, the kind that form a small half hoop, work well with talent and evening wear. The key is to look for subtlety and find something that draws the attention to your face.

Necklaces

Necklaces are especially tricky to know when to wear and when to avoid. A rule of thumb is to not wear them on stage. They have a habit of being eye-catching and cutting you off at the neck, which stops the judges from seeing you! Look at Miss Nevada at the 2012 Miss USA pageant. She is an obviously beautiful woman but your eye gets stuck at her neck. If you are off-stage in interview or preforming in casual wear and talent necklaces can be a good thing. Remember to go for simplistic over outrageous, the eyes should be on you not on your neck.

Bracelets

Bracelets are best when used sparingly. A great bracelet can make a dress or interview outfit. A good rule of thumb is to only wear one when you are wearing nothing else, it ensures that you never will be over accessorized looking like something out of a bad episode of the Jersey Shore. Bracelets can work in any phase of competition but save them for a special moment, like when you are preforming a talent. A stack of bangles are very appropriate for swimsuit to keep up that fun vibe. Avoid them for evening wear though as they detract from your beauty.

Rings

You can never go wrong with a great ring. They are never overbearing, always in style, and normally represent a meaning that is not only personal but can express something about yourself that shows more than meets the eye. Wear ones that mean something to you, ones that make a great story. You never know what can become a topic in the interview room. Wear these little baubles for every phase of competition.

Wild Cards

Wild cards can be a great asset or a huge disadvantage. Belly rings are a no, always a no, and always will be a no. Toe rings are rarely seen, gages can be interesting depending on what kind of competitor you are, and any other piercings will be up to you. The key thing to remember is to stay classy, never trashy. Use bling, but keep it in moderation.
