Wedding jewellery ideas to suit your own personal style
February 12, 2020
Deciding on the perfect pieces to compliment your wedding dress can be a difficult process, especially with so many beautiful items to choose from. It can be all the more challenging when you want to inject your own signature style into the mix. So we have put together this guide to help you choose bridal jewellery to not only accentuate your wedding gown but to also suit your own personal style…
For The Princess Bride: Those wishing for a fairytale wedding should opt for jewelled designs that offer the ideal balance in size, silver and sparkle. If your dress features a conventional, meringue-style skirt, it will make a statement all of its own – so bear this in mind when picking your jewellery. Necklace, earrings and bracelet…you can have it all, just keep the diamonds small and delicate to avoid over-extravagance. Our Carrie, Vintage Style Pearl & Crystal Stud Earrings are a perfect option for any Princess Bride.
For The Boho Bride: Romantic and whimsical, many boho brides allow their accessories to do all the talking. But you needn’t splash out on a wealth of jewellery, just a few key pieces that provide the perfect complement to the all-important dress. Boho brides defy convention by rejecting the need to coordinate all their jewellery choices, instead opting for a mix of metallics, precious stones and unique patterns. Our quirky and delicately beautiful Dragonfly, Gold Wedding Headpiece will leave your wedding guests with no doubts that you have extended your own personal style to your wedding day ensemble.
For The Classic Bride: Feminine and graceful, the classic bride looks to tradition and heritage in her jewellery choices. From a silver or gold necklace featuring an eye-catching pendant to a ring that enhances her wedding band, the classic bride is elegance and sophistication personified. Our Alisha, Yellow Gold Freshwater Pearl Pendant is the perfect accompaniment to the classic bridal look.
For The Glamour Bride: Making a statement in every aspect, the glamour bride wants the optimum level of sparkle. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and this bride is living proof, only settling for the biggest and boldest jewels to make sure all eyes are on her. Our Jodie, Rose Gold Teardrop Crystal Set, will add a little more glamour to your big day. For The Understated Bride: Keeping it simple and straightforward, for brides who shy away from the spotlight jewellery should be pared down and brought back to basics. However, less can certainly be more, provided the right choices are made. Pearls are a pretty and subtle complement for all bridal wear, as are coloured stones which can offset an all-white/ivory dress beautifully. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires can offer a welcome ‘pop’ of colour without detracting from the dress. Our Shelly, Delicate Silver & Pearl Bracelet, is something we think you will continue to wear throughout your honeymoon and beyond!
