25 Jewel-Toned Wedding Centerpieces Sure to Wow Your Guests
Whether you favor shades of emerald, sapphire, ruby, or turquoise, incorporating jewel tones into your color palette is an easy way to make your wedding feel more elegant. There's a reason why this color family is so popular—there's a way to include these tones at nearly any wedding reception, but we particularly love when couples use them in their centerpieces. From deep greens to vibrant reds, jewel tones represent a wide variety of shades, which means it couldn't be easier to add gemstone-colored blooms to your floral arrangements.
What we love most is how unexpected and romantic a jewel-toned centerpiece can be. Just look to this Molly Taylor + Co. arrangement—which featured stems in every color from fiery red to pale yellow—for serious jewel-toned inspiration. Even the glassware was selected for their gemstone hues, and they were a beautiful complement to the dahlia centerpieces.
What we like best about flowers done in jewel tones is that they're incredibly versatile. Depending on what you pair these gem-colored flowers with, the hues can brighten up a spring arrangement or feel moody enough for a fall or winter wedding. Another benefit of this color palette? Many different flowers are naturally available in these shades, which makes it easy to select the blooms that are right for your day. For a classic event, there's nothing more fitting than a traditional red rose. If you're throwing a modern wedding, look for vibrant blue anemones to feature in your reception arrangements. They even work well for nonfloral centerpieces. A statement candle or charger in one of these pretty hues will elevate any muted décor.
If you're excited about adding these rich, luxe tones for your reception, you're going to love the beautiful jewel-toned centerpieces ahead.
To make your jewel-toned centerpiece pop, stick with one color. Kate Asire Flowers created this uniform arrangement using only amethyst-colored garden roses against emerald greenery.
Use jewel-tones as a pop of color against white floral centerpieces. Sebesta Design, LLC paired blue candles with white dahlias, garden roses, and other pale blooms in this subtle display.
Hints of Blue
Jewel tones really pop when added to an arrangement of white flowers. Here, A Very Beloved Wedding used a mix of sapphire and white anemones, white ranunculus, and greenery.
La Fleur Du Jour added ruby-colored dahlias to this otherwise light centerpiece for a pop of moody color. The bold teal tablecloth only added to the jewel-toned aesthetic.
White and Magenta
Moody ruby ranunculus were the only gem-colored blooms in this centerpiece by Posey Floral + Event Design, but because they were paired with sapphire linens and candles, the look worked.
Jewel-toned flowers don't have to be reserved for the table alone. Make like this couple and let your magenta blooms cascade from the table to the floor.
Pink and Blue
Sapphire table runners, water goblets, and menus meant that this couple's pink centerpieces still felt at home in a jewel-toned wedding.
Onyx and Pink
When it comes to jewel tones, don't overlook onyx. Combine the jet-black color with a centerpiece of pink and red hues for a dramatic look.
Light and Feminine
Although inherently moody, jewel tones can feel feminine, too. By pairing white roses with ruby dahlias and ranunculus, Beargrass Gardens made this arrangement feel appropriately light.
Magenta and Emerald
Although Tinge created this mix using beautiful magenta garden roses, we can't stop looking at the surrounding emerald-colored greenery.
This compote Statice Floral centerpiece was packed with jewel-tones in the form of deep red dahlias, plenty of emerald greenery, and sapphire thistle.
Ruby, amethyst, and sapphire hues may feel luxe, but Lale Florals proved that they work for rustic weddings, too. The pros arranged this unique centerpiece of red and purple roses and dahlias, which popped against the raw wood tables. Topaz glassware and sapphire vases ensured every gemstone color was represented.
Purple and Pink
For a simple yet eye-catching arrangement, Tanya List Design paired tall vases of deep purple stock with small clusters of magenta blooms.
Subtle Jewel Tones
Magenta ranunculus popped in this overflowing arrangement by Loop Event Arts, but it's the subtle amethyst-hued foliage and emerald greenery that really helps to evoke a jewel-toned vibe.
Ruby red dahlias, zinnias, and coneflower were arranged around one statement blush dahlia in this Bash and Bloom arrangement, proving that despite how statement-making jewel tones are, they can play a supporting role, too.
Stand Out Centerpiece
Make your centerpiece the only pop of color on your table. Cherries Flowers chose eye-catching pink blooms and emerald-hued greenery for this arrangement.
