Your wedding day is almost here, and you’re still confused about what jewellery to wear. There are some tips from top London jewellers on how to accessorise for your wedding:
1. Match your metals with your dress.
Many people don’t know this, but certain metals look exquisite with only specific dress colours. As a rule of thumb, ivory shines best when paired with gold because gold brings out the natural creaminess found in the fabric. Silver or platinum are great choices for those wanting to wear white because gold might clash with brighter white hues.
A diamond-white gown is a versatile colour that looks beautiful with yellow gold, rose gold, silver or pearls. If your dress has beadwork, use that to guide the colours of your accessories. For example, if there’s gold beading on the dress, look for a necklace, bracelet or earrings with a gold base.
2. When in doubt, remember that less is more
Your wedding dress is the star of the show, so make sure your jewellery complements it. If your dress is simple, you might want to add a statement necklace or earrings. If your dress is already quite ornate, keep your jewellery more understated. Stick to one or two statement pieces, and then keep the rest of your jewellery simpler.
You don’t want to look like you are wearing a costume.
3. Consider your dress’ neckline.
If you are wearing a strapless dress, skip the necklace and opt for an elegant pair of drop earrings. If you have a V-neckline, then a torque necklace will add a pop of sophistication to your overall look.
4. Don’t forget your hands.
Your wedding ring is not the only piece of jewellery you should wear on your big day! Add some sparkle to your hands with some pretty bracelets. But make sure they don’t compete too much with your engagement ring. A tennis bracelet or chain bracelet will do the trick.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! With these tips, you’ll be sure to find the perfect jewellery from London jewellers to match your dress and theme. Have fun shopping!
