Pritesh Vegad, founder of Diamond Boutique gives his top tips on choosing jewellery for you and your bridesmaids.
As a bride picking jewellery for the big day can be an overwhelming experience. Here a few crucial tips which will make it a fun and simple task.
The first and foremost thing you need to look at is the style and colour of your wedding dress. The style of the wedding dress and jewellery has to complement each other, so if you are going to wear a classic dress go for classic jewellery such as pearls, diamond necklaces and tennis bracelets. If you are going to be wearing a vintage inspired dress go with vintage jewellery. If you use this as a guide you can't go wrong.
For the adventurous bride who wears a dress with "colour" you can use this opportunity to introduce coloured gemstones into your jewellery box. Gemstones come in a variety of colours and selecting the right gem to compliment you on your big day can be exciting and fun.
The most popular choice is blue sapphire however you can also look at ruby (red), emerald (green), tanzanite (shades of purple and blue).. the list is endless. A perfect example that comes to mind is complimenting the red sole of the Christian Louboutin high heel with beautiful red ruby statement earrings or keep it simple with a stunning pendant. The options are open and endless, you can be as extravagant or minimalistic as you like.
Wearing a white wedding dress does not mean you can't experiment with colour. You can also pick out jewellery which will compliment your make-up, eye shadow, colour of your bridal flowers or even the bridesmaid's dresses. Think outside the box.
When picking jewellery for your bridesmaids you need to keep it simple, choose jewellery which compliments their dresses, make-up and other accessories they may be wearing on the day. Remember not to overdo it as the focus should be on you as the bride.
