Bridal jewelry is so much more than engagement rings, wedding bands and a bridal ensemble.
The tradition of bridal jewelry is a tradition that transcends time, trends and beliefs. Almost all cultures include jewelry as a symbolic part of
the ceremony and isn’t limited to the bride alone. For the bridal party, jewelry is just as important a feature as the bridesmaids’ dresses or the groomsmen’s tuxedos.
From diamond engagement rings to pearl ensembles. From cuff links for the ushers to matching pendants for the bridesmaids – the ring is
only the start of the story. Finding the perfect jewelry ensemble that suits both the bride, the theme of the wedding (casual or formal) and the style of the wedding dress is a daunting task. For example, if you’re wearing your hair up, then more than likely you’ll look best in drop or chandelier earrings. On the other hand, if your hair is long and left down, you’ll most likely go for smaller earrings like pearl
or diamond studs that won’t get tangled in your hair.
Is the neckline on your wedding dress high or open? If the dress has a high neckline, then a longer style necklace (or dare we say it – none at all) would be most suitable. If your dress has an open neckline, a pearl choker is classic way to go – or a simple diamond pendant. Let’s not forget colors… If a wedding is color themed – sticklers to detail will want to reflect the colors in the jewelry too.
