So I love these posts, so I thought I'd ask for some help here too . I have this dress and these shoes. So I just need help with jewelry. Necklace, no necklace? Just earrings? I'd love to hear your ideas!
(Oh, and it's for a cruise.)

Cute dress! Since the dress is kind of busy (not said in a bad way) and with that neckline, I wouldn't wear a necklace. I would wear silver hoops and a few chunky silver bangles

I love these threads, so interesting to hear how different peas would wear something

I'd go with a silver cuff bracelet, rather large and that's it, no necklace, maybe some simple hoops. Cute dress

I'm thinking all silver jewelry paired with the silver shoes might be too much of a good thing.

Maybe switch out either the earrings OR the big chunky bracelet to something with color. An enameled red maybe.

An Eye of Sauron dress! LOL- wear it with one ring around your neck.

Just kidding, it is very pretty. I like the idea of red enamel accessories- or yellow.

No necklace. Wear some accessories like bracelets and earrings with colors such as; turquoise, red, or yellow.

I wouldn't even wear the silver shoes with the dress, I would do black. I would make the dress the center of attention and wear black shoes and simple silver jewelry.

I'd go with red bangle bracelets and red hoop earrings.

I had to ask the Peas what socks to wear the other day, so not sure you should pay too much attention to my opinion

I think that since the pattern on the dress and the straps on the sandals are thin lines, a thick bangle would be a nice compliment... I'd worry that too many thin lines and stripes and accents would make it look too cluttered/scattered... I'd go with a solid black colour for any jewellery for the same reason - the dress has a lot of interest and the shoes are metallic, so I'd go solid and subtle for anything else...

I'd avoid a statement necklace (I usually wear a diamond solitaire on a chain if I'm not wearing a statement necklace, so I'd leave that on), and keep earrings simple too... Diamond studs, simple hoop or chain... Since it's simple, whatever looks best with how you're doing your hair...
