How to match bridal jewellery to your wedding gown
Like most aspects of wedding planning, choosing bridal jewellery can be frustrating and confusing. Most brides search for universal and high quality bridal jewellery, to match their fashion style and suitable to wear on other occasions. Ideally, you will buy bridal jewellery which ticks all boxes and matches with your wedding dress. Here are some expert tips on how to do that.
Blue Sapphires are the most popular gem stone choice for bridal jewellery and gemstone engagement rings, as they symbolise loyalty and friendship. Traditionally, every bride should wear something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Sapphires are one of the most popular choices for blue bridal jewellery - they make a great everyday statement pieces, flatter most outfits and suit all occasions.
Planning a vintage wedding? are the ultimate classical choice and the perfect addition to any vintage or contemporary wedding dress. Pearl jewellery is the perfect memorabilia from your wedding day, suitable to wear on multiple occasions after your big day.
How to match bridal jewellery to your wedding dress
We advise to carefully consider your purchase and buy high quality accessories to wear on multiple occasions. A brilliant finishing touch for crystal embroidered wedding dress is diamond jewellery. One of our top recommendations is the universal and delicately eye-catching solitaire diamond pendant. How dazzling you want to be and how much diamonds you wear is entirely up to the bride's preferences and budget. However, bridal jewellery is best when understated and it should complement your dress, not compete with it.
How to match precious metals to your wedding gown
Although most wedding gowns are traditionally white, the dress' undertones can vary depending on the material. Silver jewellery and platinum jewellery would perfectly match with the gown's tones if you are wearing a satin wedding dress. For dresses in ivory nuances or warm champagne tones, we recommend precious metals in warm colours such as rose gold and yellow gold.
If your dress has an asymmetrical neckline or thick shoulder straps, choose a delicate solitaire pendant or skip the necklace. Since these neckline designs are eye-catching enough, adding a chunky statement necklace would most likely overwhelm the dress and clash with the design. Large necklaces are suitable for strapless wedding dresses or gowns with wide necklines.
If your wedding dress has long sleeves we do not recommend wearing bracelets, as they can tangle in the lace and eventually tear or slip under the sleeve and remain unnoticed. Another thing to avoid wearing on your wrists on your wedding day is a watch. It is considered bad luck for the groom or bride if one of them is wearing a watch while saying the vows.
