Bridal jewelry inspiration for the modern bride
The snow has melted away, the skies are clearing and the natural world is bursting into life. In a changing of season, with new life and new beauty, spring is a time for renewal and limitless possibilities, perfectly symbolizing the magic and romance of your new life together.
When planning your wedding, choosing the jewelry that you will wear on this memorable day is one of the most personal and significant decisions that you will make. From your engagement ring, to that special piece you’ve always dreamed of, this is the jewelry that you will treasure Forever.
Spring wedding dresses
When it comes to choosing jewelry to compliment your gown, certain styles are especially worth noting for a spring bride.
Dresses that make the neck a focal point are always popular at this time of year. “Off the shoulder styles are particularly pretty for spring weddings, and dainty capelets, gossamer-fine panels across the décolleté and even high fitted necklines all draw the eye upwards,” says De Beers Forevermark’s Federica Imperiali. “With this in mind, capitalize on the vogue for statement diamond earrings and necklaces with a selection of striking designs whose fire and sparkle will flatter from every angle. Elaborate diamond clusters, fancy settings and dramatic diamond shapes are all great ideas.”
If you choose to wear something more contemporary – a simple columnar gown, a structured two-piece outfit or even a pantsuit – you may wish to opt for a modern style of jewelry to match. Plain settings, graphic silhouettes, brushed finishes and diamond solitaire stations all support this approach.
Spring wedding venue
For your spring wedding, you may want to select a venue that incorporates both indoor and outdoor facilities, so if it does rain on the day, you can bring the outdoors in with decorative elements that feature flowers, buds and garlands.
In some cultures, rain signifies luck. Hindus believe that rain on your wedding day is lucky as it foretells a strong marriage, and Italians say “Sposa Bagnata, Sposa Fortunata”, which translates as “wet bride, lucky bride”.
For jewelry that reflects the theme and season of your wedding, opt for floral designs featuring blossom motifs. Alternatively, you can channel a nature-inspired aesthetic with jewelry that embraces and entwines your wrist, hand or neck.
Bridal jewelry trends
As with all exceptional design, the best jewelry is timeless, but equally adaptable to current style aesthetics. This is true of your bridal jewelry too. With this in mind, you may want to consider looking to emerging trends to guide you in your choice for that perfect jewelry piece.
“If you’re a fan of rings, vintage-style cocktail rings are a great option for spring,” says Maia Adams of Adorn Insight. “Don’t feel the need to limit yourself to just one or two, either. Multiple rings are a wonderful way to create a truly personalized look.”
Many bridal gowns feature tassels, tiers and other embellishments which you can reflect within your jewelry with pieces that cascade and move. Similarly, pendant drop necklaces are another very popular style whose elongated silhouette will contrast elegantly against all types of neckline.
Lastly, as large diamonds – those of a carat and above – become an increasingly popular choice thanks to their ability to elevate any look, the exquisite Oval Halo Ring With Baguettes featuring an 8.25 elongated oval diamond will add an unforgettable finishing touch.
