Bridal Jewellery

Once the proposal has taken place and you now have the most beautiful engagement ring on your finger, it is time to start thinking about your big day, the most wonderful day where you and your beloved exchange vows and celebrate love with your family and friends.

Once this step is done, it is time to have fun and think about the bigger picture: matching jewellery for the wedding. From glamorous tennis bracelets with a river of diamonds to embrace your wrist, to diamond earrings that will sparkle as vividly as your smile on that special day; and necklaces that will shine brightly as the diamonds catch a glimpse of the sun whether you choose a diamond pendant or a necklace with a myriad of diamonds.

Tips for picking Wedding Jewelry.

The choice for your bridal jewellery is not an easy one as there are so many magnificent designs to choose from. When it comes to style, we’re all for breaking the so-called “rules.” But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still tried-and-true tips to help you look your best, including for your wedding day jewelry. So if you need a little guidance when it comes to accessorizing your gown, read on below.

1. Think "less is more", don’t overdo it.

The first commandment for picking out your wedding jewelry: Don’t go overboard. No matter how tempting it is to load up on bling, you don't want to risk letting your accessories outshine you. Keep “less is more” as your mantra and stick with a few key pieces rather than accessorizing every part of your body.

2. Match your metals to your dress.

Can’t decide between the different colours of gold? Let the colour of your gown guide your choice.

White gown: This bright hue looks prettiest with platinum or white golden pieces.
Ivory gown: Yellow golden jewelry will best enhance this creamy shade.
Champagne gown: Yellow golden jewelry will complement the warm tones in this very light beige color.
Blush gown: Try rose gold. The pink cast in the metal will coordinate with the soft pink of the dress.

3. Consider your dress’s neckline.

Your gown’s décolletage will play a role in framing your face. Help it do its job by selecting jewelry that pairs perfectly with it.

Sweetheart or strapless neckline: To create height and direct all eyes to your smile, consider wearing a choker or shorter necklace. This style has made a huge comeback the last year and looks timeless with this neckline. Another option: Skip the necklace and wear statement chandelier earrings instead. Pull your hair off your face and add a few fresh leave design earrings or another simple embellishment that works with your look. As your décolletage is the focal point, you’ll want your standout pieces there, but don’t hesitate to add a smaller bracelet, bangle or cocktail ring to balance everything out.

V-neck: This style is made for décolletage decoration. Opt for a choker or pendant, or try layering both if they’re delicate pieces. Pair the necklace with earrings, which could be small or dangling—whichever looks best with your hairstyle.

Halter or reverse halter: Focus your accessorizing on your hair by decorating it with pins, combs or vines. These can be sleek, bejeweled or floral, depending on the effect you want. Going for a retro vibe? Try a gorgeous embellished birdcage veil. If you need a little extra something, wear a bracelet or cocktail ring.

4. Don’t get overwhelmed.

If deciding on your jewelry seems more difficult than finding the gown, focus your search. Find one piece you absolutely adore and want to invest in, and wear that. Still in doubt? Simple diamond studs are always classic. Just be sure you don’t buy them as part of a set. While jewelry suites used to be a go-to, modern brides avoid accessories that look too matchy-matchy.

5. Be yourself.

The most important thing about picking the perfect pieces for your wedding gown is they should be a reflection of you. If you're not comfortable wearing big, chandelier earrings, stick to studs. Love the way you look in a chocker necklace? Go for it! If you're happy in all your accessories, you’ll feel confident—and that’s the best accessory of all.
