Bridal jewellery inspiration for the modern bride
The leaves have fallen and the cold, crisp air has set in. Thoughts turn to frost covered pine trees, cosy fireplaces and falling snow. With icy whites, midnight blues and berry reds, there is something ethereal about a winter wedding.
An important decision you will make prior to your special day is what jewellery to wear. Your bridal jewellery is something you’ll cherish Forever, so as well as considering your style of dress, you must trust your personal taste when making your selection.
Winter wedding dresses
“If you’re the kind of bride who dreams of breathtaking gowns, this is a fantastic season in which to get married,” says Federica Imperiali of De Beers Forevermark. “Channel the key trends from the bridal catwalks and you’ll easily pick jewellery that is the perfect accompaniment.”
“One of the most eye-catching current bridal trends has seen a return to opulence characterised by all-over beading, light-as-air layering and bejewelled fabrics.” explains Federica Imperiali.“With lace, embroidery and bows at the heart of many dress designs, romantic jewellery with a vintage element is a perfect option”.
Alternatively, simple, elegant gowns with minimal detailing and architectural lines are the ideal excuse to invest in pieces whose streamlined white gold settings will showcase your diamonds exquisitely.
Given the cooler weather during the winter season, gowns with high necks and long sleeves are a lovely style. “Popular belief states that bracelets and necklaces should be avoided with such styles, but a beautiful fabric can, in fact, become a striking backdrop for daintily layered pieces,” says Maia Adams of Adorn Insight.
Winter themed wedding
It’s almost certain that your winter wedding celebrations will take place indoors and lighting will therefore play a big role. Whether you opt for a classic candelabra, twinkling fairy lights, or flickering candles, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase the fire and brilliance of your diamond jewellery.
If your decorative scheme is inspired by frost and snow-covered landscapes, why not pick your jewellery to match, with pieces that feature snowflake motifs, ice-like silhouettes and textural pavé settings.
On trend earrings
“As earrings continue to top the trend lists, ear cuffs and hoops in particular are styles to focus on,” says Federica Imperiali. “The Luna Ear Cuff and Oval Hoop Earrings really suit a wintry mood and add just the right dash of contemporary appeal.”
Alternatively, choose to make a statement with your choice of rings. Whether you opt to showcase a single ring or to wear multiple rings on both hands, “not only will this approach result in a look that’s unique to you, it will furnish you with a collection of rings that you can continue to wear for years to come,” explains Maia Adams.
The diamond jewellery that you wear on your wedding day is more than just decoration. As a diamond lasts Forever it’s the representation of the real and raw romance between two people, the binding words you say to one another and the lives that you will share together, now and Forever.
