The right jewellery is as important as picking your wedding dress. After all, it adds the final touch of grace and shimmer to the blushing bride.
This is why it is necessary to plan everything beforehand and select each piece of jewellery carefully keeping your dress and overall personality in mind. And if you need a little guidance on how to pick the right pieces, read on below.
(Don’t) overdo it
The very first thing you need to accept is that "less in more’’. No matter how tempting it is to load up the bling, you don’t want the jewellery to outshine you. Your mantra should be to stick to a few key pieces rather than accessorising every part of your body. For example, if your wedding gown is a simple one, you can opt for a bold statement necklace or chandelier earrings.
Try this beautiful waterfall chandelier diamond earrings. Light and elegant, it is made of 18k white gold with a claw setting. Each diamond is of similar quality in the cut so that it shines evenly.
(Do) match the jewellery to the fabric of your dress
Finding it hard to decide between white gold or yellow gold jewellery? Let the fabric and colour of your gown be your guide. If your dress is beaded, go for a stunning pair of south sea pearl earrings or a pearl choker. The iridescent lustre from the pearl earrings will perfectly complement the beads on your dress and as an additional tip - pearls make your skin glow!
(Do) consider the neckline of your dress
Your gown’s decolletage will play a vital role in framing your face. Help it do its job by choosing jewellery that pairs perfectly with it. For a halter neck, let’s not match it with a short necklace because it'll be too distracting. However, if you add a gorgeous long strand of pearls or a long diamond necklace, it becomes an instant fashion statement.
(Do) keep the jewellery highlighted
You don’t need so many jewellery pieces. All you need is one piece which you love the most and flaunt it. Pick your favourite jewellery which can be a gorgeous tennis diamond bracelet. We are sure it will be ever so eye-catching when you wave or say hi to all your wedding guest.
(Do) avoid too many colours in wedding jewellery
Wearing multi-coloured jewellery is strictly a NO at wedding occasions because it makes the bride look messy and distracts from her overall glow. Keep it really understated. Diamonds will work best. Pearls are also a fantastic option for bridal jewellery.
Choose a pair of simple diamond ear studs that you can wear not only on your wedding day but also as your everyday staple after your grand day.
(Do) avoid choosing too many different metal pieces together
It is absolutely fine to mix and match different metal jewellery with different gems. However, it is important to pair the right metals with each other. For example, we highly recommend 18K white gold with 18K rose gold and white diamond jewellery.
This is because,18K Rose gold blends beautifully with the Asian skin tone. It also adds more sparkle when you pair it with an 18K white gold and diamond.
