Worn to enhance her features and complement her gown, wedding jewellery holds its own as an integral part of a bride’s costume. an indulgent purchase that is a keepsake for life. Inspired by the regal brides of the opulent past or created by contemporary jewellery designers, wedding jewels should catch your eye, be worn with pride and stay in your heart, forever.
When selecting your jewellery, take into account the style and time of your wedding, the type of gown you’ll be wearing, the neckline and how you’ll style your hair. For example, a morning wedding where simplicity is the order of the day may require little more than a simple necklace and pearl drops, but a night time soirée with a theme of glitz and glamour allows you to be a little more elaborate. Indulge in a statement jewelled collar or cuff and a pair of blingy chandelier earrings.
When it comes to choosing the all important engagement and wedding rings, it’s no longer a case of one size fits all. The simple gold band and solitaire diamond ring might be all you’ve ever dreamed of, but if you’re looking for a way to personalise the most important jewellery you’ll ever own, it’s never been easier. Start by selecting your diamond, remember to take into account the four C’s (cut, colour, clarity and carat weight) as well as the diamond’s shape.
A diamond’s shape is its silhouette when seen from above. New cutting techniques and technology now mean there are numerous shapes that take the world’s most treasured gem beyond the classic brilliant cut. Each shape has its own way of revealing the radiance that is unique to diamonds. Whether you choose a round, pear, oval, princess, marquise, emerald or heart shaped diamond, or elect to stick with the classic brilliant cut, be sure to choose a setting that shows off your stone’s beauty.
Wedding bands have also come a long way; the range of shapes, styles and materials available is wider than ever before. Your wedding bands are a symbol of your love and union and thus, should represent you both and fit in with your personal style. You can even go so far as to have your fingerprints cast into your wedding bands, forever a symbol of your uniqueness.
Your wedding jewels should be an indulgent purchase, a keepsake for life. Whether they’re inspired by the regal brides of the past or created by a contemporary jewellery designer, wedding jewels should catch the eye, be worn with pride and be true to your personal style, so you’ll be able to wear them for the rest of your life.
