When most people think of weddings and jewellery, they automatically think of rings – the most obvious symbols of commitment connected to the ceremony of marriage. However, although the rings are hugely important, they are not the be all and end all of wedding jewellery. Here is our top 5 list of pieces that are not to be forgotten!
Strapless gowns in particular are set off well by a pretty necklace. Whether you choose classic pearls or dazzling diamonds, a necklace is an essential part of almost every bride’s jewellery repertoire.
It’s not for everyone, but some brides opt for a tiara over a traditional veil, whilst some opt for both! Tiaras can be pretty and delicate or big and bold, depending on how much sparkle you like, but either way, they are the ideal hair accessory for the big day.
Anything from simple studs to dramatic drop earrings will inject a bit of glamour into a wedding outfit. Earrings work especially well for a bride who is wearing her hair up, as this gives more opportunity to show them off!
Grooms and their ushers will surely want to look smart and stylish too, so it is worth investing in some cufflinks to keep their sleeves together and their look streamlined. Personalised or matching cufflinks also make a great memento of the day.
Jewellery is the perfect gift to give to thank important guests, such as the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and parents. Engraved watches, for instance, are presents that will look stunning, get plenty of use, and last a lifetime.
