ESSENCE of Australia Gown - D1154 - Need help accessorizing!

I bought D1154 in Oyster with the black accents.  The BM's are all wearing Saphhire/Midnight Blue and the GM's are all wearing charcoal grey and black.  I have all my colors running on this theme.  However, I have NO IDEA what kind of jewelry to get.  I think this dress is totally unique and want the jewelry to compliment it.  I was thinking pearls is the best way to go, maybe with some saphhire blue accents, but I am having a hard time finding jewelry on the web and I am not sure where to start looking!  Does anyone have any tips, advice, places to check out (or any pictures)?  Thanks so much all!

    Why not black pearls and skip the sapphires?  A black pearl pendant with dangling black pearl earrings.

    I would honestly go with either a choaker or something small.  The dress already has some nice details on it, and you don't want to overpower it.  Honestly, the first thing I thought of to wear was jet, but I don't know if that would be considered appropriate for a wedding!  (though, if it has black accents, i don't think that'd be an issue for you).

    You might see if you can find a pearl choaker with several strands, seperated by black beads.  I bet that would look really nice and elegant!

    Edit: something like this, except maybe replace the broach:

    You read my mind!

    I would skip a necklace or if you do a necklace keep it short and very simple.  Add a pearl bracelet and some pearl earrings and you are done.  That dress is gorgeous (I had a essence dress too!) and doesn't need a lot of jewelry.

    Thanks Dubird!  That is a beautiful necklace. 

    Thanks everyone else too - I guess I never considered black!  I'll have to play around in google and see if I can find some pearls with black thrown in.
