The bridal jewellery style you opt for will largely depend on the style of your wedding dress. Will you be wearing a very simple, elegant dress? If so, opt for contemporary, minimalist jewellery. Like a cuff bracelet, or long pendants.
Red gold jewellery looks amazing with a lacey vintage dress. Entourage bridal earrings or an entourage pendant will complete your look to perfection. If you'd rather not wear diamonds, pearls are exceptionally beautiful too.
A traditional dress often features long sleeves and a slightly higher neckline. In this instance a necklace or bracelet will be less noticeable. Why not opt for striking wedding earrings instead, to still add that extra touch of sparkle?
Is your wedding dress already set with lots of tiny stones? If so, to ensure all eyes remain drawn to your dress, opt for understated jewellery, for example, diamond stud bridal earrings and a satellite necklace.
Your ‘something old’ doesn’t necessarily need to be inherited jewellery, it could also be a veil, bolero or stole to keep you warm. Whatever it is, it will make your wedding even more special.
If your dress already fully sparkles or has a lot of lace, tone down your jewellery. Your diamond jewellery should complement your dress, not detract from it. Nor are you obliged to wear a veil, tiara, necklace, earrings and bracelet. Go with what feels right for you.
If you're wearing a more modest dress, a statement necklace is definitely worth considering. How about a sapphire necklace or eternity ring? Modern bridal earrings or a striking bracelet will also look fabulous with this type of wedding dress.
Decide on your preferred style beforehand, to then choose the appropriate jewellery. If you want your wedding jewellery to tell its own story, you could engrave an item of jewellery, or have your birth stone set into the pieces.
Determining the style of your bridal jewellery, and your wedding rings, is essential. You’ll be wearing your wedding ring for the rest of your life, so it needs to match your individual tastes.
Please don't hesitate to seek wedding ring advice from your jeweller. They can advise on the best precious metal to choose, and whether to have it set with diamonds, such as with an eternity ring, for example.
Try to avoid combining precious metals. This can often come across as too fussy, upsetting the harmonious bridal look.
Consider the colour of your wedding dress
- A white dress is best complemented by platinum or white gold jewellery.
- An ivory coloured dress is ideally combined with yellow gold, as this is a warmer colour than white.
- Similarly, champagne coloured dresses look stunning with yellow gold jewellery.
- Does your dress have a pink sheen to it? If so, opt for red or pink gold jewellery.
We’ve outlined the different types of neckline available to help you choose your bridal earrings and necklace style.
A halter neck
Instead, accentuate your bridal look with diamond bar earrings for a modern look, or pear-shaped earrings for a romantic look.
Is your dress understated? If so, you can wear a necklace. There are a range of options to choose between, depending on your preferred style. Take, for example, a simple pendant necklace, or conversely, a statement necklace. Are you looking for something truly unique? Why not mix and match different necklaces.
A V neckline
Would you like to draw more attention to your cleavage rather than your necklace? If so, opt for a simple, gold necklace, with a small pendant.
Another possibility, of course, is to draw no attention to your V neckline at all. In this case, a stunning bracelet and a pair of elegant earrings is the way to go.
A boat neckline
Jewellery in combination with a boat neckline should be understated. We advise against a necklace. That would be too much. A stunning pair of medium-length earrings and a matching bracelet will complete your outfit fabulously.
A high neckline
With this style of dress we do not advise wearing a necklace, but you can add extra sparkle with a tiara or diamond clips in your hair. Similarly, medium-length earrings or a delicate bracelet will look stunning with this style of dress.
You could choose medium-length pendants, but do make sure they are in balance with your necklace.
If you'll be wearing your hair up, then striking stud earrings will look fabulous — or even a tiara.
Will you be wearing your hair up? If so, opt for striking earrings and perhaps a tiara too, to attach to your veil. A short necklace is recommended, such as a pendant necklace or choker.
This will also entail less upkeep and cleaning. Of course, you can always clean your jewellery yourself. Yet, regular, professional cleaning by a jeweller is highly recommended toensure your jewellery looks as good as new again.
Bridal jewellery is often regarded as a great investment, so why only wear them once? If you have chosen understated bridal earrings and a bracelet, you can pair them with your everyday outfits to add a touch of sparkle. Likewise, with more striking pieces, take them out on special occasions — an anniversary, a birthday, or a holiday.
