Find the finishing touch for your dress with this guide to wedding jewellery suited to your specific style
Deciding on the perfect pieces to complement your wedding dress can be a minefield, especially when faced with so many options. Jian London are here to help, showcasing jewellery to suit your own personal bridal style.
The Princess Bride
Those wishing for a fairytale wedding should opt for jewelled designs that offer the ideal balance in size, silver and sparkle. If your dress features a conventional, meringue-style skirt, it will make a statement all of its own – so bear this in mind when picking your jewellery. Necklace, earrings and bracelet…you can have it all, just keep the diamonds small and delicate to avoid over-extravagance.
The Boho Bride
Romantic and whimsical, many boho brides allow their accessories to do all the talking. But you needn’t splash out on a wealth of jewellery, just a few key pieces that provide the perfect complement to the all-important dress. Boho brides defy convention by rejecting the need to coordinate all their jewellery choices, instead opting for a mix of metallics, precious stones and unique patterns.
The Classic Bride
Feminine and graceful, the classic bride looks to tradition and heritage in her jewellery choices. From a silver or gold necklace featuring an eye-catching pendant to a ring that enhances her wedding band, the classic bride is elegance and sophistication personified. Remember the four Cs when deciding on the perfect diamond: cut, colour, clarity and carat.
The Glamour Bride
Making a statement in every aspect, the glamour bride wants the optimum level of sparkle. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and this bride is living proof, only settling for the biggest and boldest jewels to make sure all eyes are on her.
The Understated Bride
Keeping it simple and straightforward, for brides who shy away from the spotlight jewellery should be pared down and brought back to basics. However, less can certainly be more, provided the right choices are made. Pearls are a pretty and subtle complement for all bridal wear, as are coloured stones which can offset an all-white/ivory dress beautifully. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires can offer a welcome ‘pop’ of colour without detracting from the dress.
