A quick guide to choosing your Wedding Jewellery
Less Is More:
Don't overdo things, remember it’s all about the dress and each piece of jewellery should compliment your gown. Aim for an overall well-blended look for your entire ensemble. For example, if your gown has an ornate neckline, then don't wear a necklace because it may cause the neckline to appear too busy. Instead, go for drop earrings like our Violet, Teardrop Pearl Gold Earrings.
Make A Statement:
If your bridal gown is on the simpler side then you have carte blanche to make a bold statement with your chosen bridal jewellery. Statement necklaces are very on-trend this year and our Eve-P, Statement Pearl Necklace is perfect to add some drama to your simple but elegant look.
Choose Wedding Jewellery That Compliments The Colour Of Your Dress:
If you're undecided on whether to wear yellow gold, white gold or rose gold, then there is an easy solution, let the colour of your dress dictate the metal!
If your gown is white, go for white gold or silver pieces, if you’ve chosen an ivory dress then yellow gold will enhance the look and if your wedding dress is hues of pink or blush then rose gold is most suitable. Our Kiki Rose gold hair comb would be a perfect addition for a bride wearing a blush dress.
Consider The Neckline Of Your Dress:
The neckline of your bridal gown is THE deciding factor for the sort of necklace you should wear. A choker or a shorter necklace is suitable for dresses with a strapless neckline or sweetheart neckline. If your gown has an ornate neckline, then ditch the necklace for a beautiful hair accessory hair. If you feel out of balance don't hesitate to add a little bracelet into the mix, we love the Nancy, Art Deco Inspired Bracelet for this purpose.
Don’t mix your metals:
Too many metals can potentially spoil the whole look of your ensemble. Perhaps try and match everything to your engagement ring and wedding band. If they are platinum then try to add accessories of white gold or silver, such as the Ariel, Swarovski Pendant & Earrings Set.
The most important thing about picking the perfect bridal jewellery to accompany your wedding gown is that they should be a reflection of you. If you're not comfortable wearing drop earrings, stick to studs. Love the way you look in a chunky necklace? Go for it! If you're happy in all your accessories, you’ll feel confident and wear a smile which is the most important accessory of all.

“Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”
This comes from an old Victorian rhyme, with the old being a link with the bride’s family (often a piece of family jewellery, the new representing good fortune and success in the bride’s new life. The wedding dress is most commonly the new item, or perhaps the bride’s shoes, with something borrowed is a reminder that family and friends will be there for the bride when help is needed. Something blue represents faithfulness and loyalty.
