Your wedding jewellery is an important part of your special day that, if chosen carefully, will last a lifetime. Choosing those all important finishing touches can be difficult, read on for our top tips on how to choose your wedding jewellery.
CLASSIC OR CONTEMPORARY?
There are plenty of options to choose from when looking for your wedding jewellery. A simple way to narrow down your choice is to decide whether you’re opting for classic and timeless or stylish and contemporary.
If you love all things classic, then opt for timeless designs such as a halo pendant or delicate chandelier earrings. Looking for something more modern? R&O’s selection of contemporary pearl designs are the perfect finishing touch.
CONSIDER YOUR DRESS
Wedding jewellery should be the icing on the cake for your bridal look. With this in mind, be sure to choose pieces that will highlight your gown and all its detail. Consider your dress’ neckline, if you’ve chosen a plunging gown or an open neck, you can choose a more dramatic necklace or if yours is a high neck design, then delicate drop earrings are an excellent way to add a touch of shine.
Look at the details on your gown, such as embellishment, beading and embroidery and try to match these to the tones in your jewellery. The shade of your dress may also inform your jewellery choice, with crisp whites matching best with colourless stones and richer creams suiting rose and yellow gold.
COMPLEMENT YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING
Tie your wedding jewellery in with your engagement ring for a stunning set. For those with classic engagement ring styles, colourless stones like cubic zirconia or diamond will add sophistication to your bridal look. As more couples chose coloured gemstones for their engagement ring, keep this theme throughout with matching gemstone jewellery from regal rubies to stunning sapphire.
