What Jewelry for Maggie Sottero Jennifer w/out jacket

I have purchased a Maggie Sottero jennifer dress. there is quite a big of beading/detail on the top of the dress. Any suggestions on what kind of jewelry to wear? I want to wear some kind of jeweled headband but I don't know if I should wear a necklace or not. Please help! Here is what the dress looks like.....

    I think with that much detail at the top, you'd be better off choosing one other element to compliment.  Either a jeweled hairpiece (NOT a tiara!) or some cool earrings, but anything else would be total overkill.

    Gorgeous dress. I wouldn't wear a necklace with it because there is a lot going on up top with the detailing. If you absolutely insist on a necklace, I would keep it very simple. Personally, I would wear a really killer earring instead.

    Howeverrr if you want to wear something jeweled in your hair, I'd just wear a simple diamond stud earring. Instead of a headband or tiara, what about a jeweled fascinator? Etsy seller LaBoheme is really popular on the Knot http://www.etsy.com/shop/LoBoheme

    Hi! I would go with beautiful chandelier earrings and stay away from a necklace to show off the top of the dress. I would also do a side comb for your hair and stay away from the tiara. This is a contemporary dress that you want to show elegance and glamour. Good luck!

    I am also wearing a Maggie Sotterro dress, and I thought I wanted a tiara. Now after reading these other messages about not to wear a tiara with this dress because of the beading, I am possibly changing my mind. Any other comments or suggestions about the Maggie Sotterro hampton dress?

    Thank you so much for all the advice. Do you think it would be too much if I wore simple earrings and a headband or comb??

    I think something like this would be pretty, where your hair is done in romantic curls, hastily pulled up with a rhinestone headband or hair vine.

    Tiaras are, for most people, pageant wear, and with that dress, you'd be running dangerously close to pageant.

    I was looking around on Etsy for an idea for you and happened on these:

    <a href="http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40210061" rel="nofollow">http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=40210061</a>

    I think these would be perfect scattered through your hair either up or down.  If it's down, no earrings (sparkles too close and all that)

    If it's up, this would be a good time to mix pearls and sparkle, like this:

    Thank you so much for that great website! What gorgeous handmade jewelry. I love those earrings in silver! I'm also going for a somewhat 'vintagie' (sp?)  look with my chantilly lace Mon Cheri  strapless gown. Thanks for the fabulous ideas!
