Whether you're a classic or a bold bride, accessories have the power to pull your entire wedding day look together, and statement earrings are a perfect finishing touch. From delicate chandelier styles to fashion-forward ear-cuffs, and shoulder-grazing pieces, you can never go wrong with an eye-catching earring for any bridal ensemble.

If you're looking to up the ante on your wedding day, opt for earrings that come in bold lengths and shapes, and feature unique details like oversized pearls and bright pops of color. Of course, not all statement earrings have to be dramatic to command attention. Crystal drop earrings will always be a classic look, and delicate shoulder-grazing earrings are stunning yet subtle–plus, they can highlight simple necklines on strapless ballgowns and slinky slip dresses.

Ahead, we've rounded up scores of stunning statement earrings for every bridal style and budget.
