(Do) match the wedding theme

The style of the wedding will help inform the jewellery inspiration for the event.

Is it a casual outdoor wedding or an indoor black-tie affair? Your jewellery should be in line with the dress code because at the end of the day you want to look graceful and not stand out like a sore thumb.

Have a personal jeweller custom design your jewellery. How special would it be to mark this very special day with exquisite jewellery pieces that can also be passed down to your own daughter or daughter in law?

(Do) be classy and simple 

Keep it classic and simple because it is your daughter’s (or daughter in law’s) time to shine. It is not a day to be experimenting with your jewellery unless you are wearing a very simple frock – then a gorgeous statement necklace would be most appropriate. 

Overall, your accessory should accentuate you as a host of the special day, yet not too much to overpower the star of the show – the bride. An elegant set of pearls, a statement brooch or a simple pair of south sea pearl stud earrings are great pieces for the mother of the bride/groom

(Do) choose comfort

It is best to stay clear of jewellery that is too loud, heavy or over the top because it may make you feel uncomfortable. Especially since you will most likely need to wear them for at least a couple of hours. Instead, choose elegant pieces like a jade bangle or simple bracelets that are also timeless pieces.
