"Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don't bother you - don't bother me."
― Yohji Yamamoto, Fashion Designer
Head-to-toe black is an all-time favorite among fashion editors, models, celebrities, and women who don't shy away from rocking a 'super chic' look. Although there is nothing wrong with wearing black jewelry, adding a pop of color can be highly effective and notice-worthy.
Sometimes, a dramatic necklace or a bright, attention-grabbing cocktail ring is all that you need to make your outfit an instant success. The key to achieving a flawless look is to keep other accessories to a minimum and let a single jewelry take center stage.
9 Ways to Wear Jewelry with a Black Dress
Regardless of the length, there is not a single piece of jewelry that can't complement the versatility of a black dress. Whether it's a show stopping necklace or cocktail ring to pack a powerful punch, the elegance of your dress will not let the ensemble falter.

So, taking 9 different color combination ideas, we have put together a few options for you to select from for whenever you need to dress-up or dress-down that sexy black dress in the wardrobe.
6 Golden Rules to Follow
Many women, and some men, find this color intimidating and hence, stay away from it. However, if you just give it a try, with the jewelry and accessories already present in your wardrobe, you will have a handful of outfits ready at your disposal.
Keep in mind that even though your dress will make a marvelous canvas for a variety of jewelry, you are not allowed to pile on unnecessary accessories. Doing so will only overwhelm the outfit, and that's what we wish to avoid.
The dress' neckline is an easy giveaway for the type of necklace you should pair it with. Chunky statement necklaces only work in some cases―turtleneck, crew, scoop, off-shoulder, strapless, asymmetric necklines.
The same rule (from above) can be applied to earrings as well. Just because you have a favorite pair of earrings, doesn't mean it will stand out or complement the dress. Apart from the earrings being a 'necessary' piece for your dress, it also helps frame your face. Which is why, you need to select a pair that will suit your face shape and enhance your features.
Depending on the time of the day, venue, occasion, and weather, include each jewelry piece with care. The ensemble needs to appear glamorous even if you have worn a pair of earrings, cocktail ring, bracelet, or necklace.
Want to draw attention to your hands? The easiest and trendiest way of doing so is wearing a ring. But don't limit your options with cocktail rings alone. Instead, give funky, out-of-the-box rings a chance as well. Wearing beautiful, yet delicate rings on different fingers can bring a refreshing change to your daily style.
As for the arms, cuff bracelets or bangles are always a popular choice, but can become a distraction for an outfit. To combat this dilemma, wear a cuff bracelet on one arm and, perhaps, some bangles (maximum of 6) on the other. Compare between the two and see which one's the winner. On the other hand, delicate bracelets in gold, silver, diamond, or colored rhinestones too can make wonderful contenders.
Since you don't have to worry about matching a specific jewelry color, style, design, or pattern with the dress, use this incredible dress to your advantage. Black makes the perfect backdrop for any type of jewelry.
