After your dress, the next step is to choose your wedding jewellery. It will completely finish off your whole wedding look and will make you sparkle on your special day. There are a few things you should know before choosing your jewellery to make sure that it accentuates your natural beauty and helps you to feel your absolute best on your special day!
Choose Something Timeless
The first tip when it comes to choosing your wedding jewellery is to go for something timeless. These pieces of jewellery are going to be extremely special to you as they will be such a big part of your wedding day, so choosing something that will always be in style is important.
Go for something simple and timeless like a classic set of pearls and pearl earrings, or simple diamond earrings and a pendant. Although you won’t be choosing something you will wear on a daily basis, choosing a jewellery set that you can continue wearing for special occasions for the rest of your life will be really meaningful.
The next tip for choosing your wedding jewellery is to consider vintage, especially if you have a vintage engagement ring. There is something exceptionally special about vintage jewellery, as the pieces would have been a significant part of someone else’s life in the past. Vintage jewellery has so much more character, as it was created before the era of mass production, so each piece was carefully handcrafted.
Vintage jewellery tends to last better than modern equivalents thanks to the level of craftsmanship, so the pieces you choose could potentially be passed down to your children and their children to enjoy on their wedding days, too.
Additionally, you can buy fantastic vintage jewellery at a much lower price than the modern equivalents. As vintage jewellery would have been owned before, VAT would have already been paid on it, making it VAT exempt. So, you could choose a piece containing the same size and quality gemstone for 20% cheaper.
Choose Your Dress First
Choosing your wedding dress before your jewellery is absolutely essential. You might have a specific idea of what you want your wedding dress to look like, however it is extremely common for people to change their vision once they have tried on a few different dresses.
It is possible that you will fall in love with a dress that is a completely different shape or with a different neckline, which will change the jewellery you choose. Make sure you have your dress and you are 100% sure about it before buying your jewellery!
Your wedding jewellery is a big part of your day and potentially the rest of your married life, so it is important that you spend time to get it right! Go for something timeless, consider vintage jewellery and choose your dress first. Most importantly, make sure you fall in love with the jewellery to make your day all the more special.
