Happy Wednesday everyone. As we reach the mid point of the week I hope it’s...
There are so many things to consider when choosing your overall look for your wedding. The dress is the obvious one, but then there are all the accessories and jewellery to think about. Picking out an necklace to match all the other aspects of your outfit is an important element of your over all look, so today I have enlisted Emmeline Smith necklace expert to tell you more.
When it comes to weddings, it’s all about forever. You’re letting everyone know that you’re in love and that this one’s for keeps.
There are many wedding traditions, some are historic, while others are more modern inventions and all of them add up to make it a day like no other. The exchanging of rings is a significant part of the ceremony in many cultures and is one of the oldest traditions. Some of the first recorded wedding rings date back to the ancient Egyptians who exchanged rings made from reeds and hemp. But rings aren’t the only wedding jewellery you need to consider.
It’s important to make the day your own and only adopt the traditions that you both want. For example, if you or your partner are terrified about dancing in front of all of your friends and family (like me and my now-husband were!) – don’t do it. People won’t notice the little things you didn’t do, they’ll just remember the wonderful love-filled day. So, I’d encourage you all to personalise your day as much as you want and you’ll have no regrets. I certainly have no regrets that I took time to choose my wedding day necklace – I cherish it so much and still wear it 14 years down the line.
Jewellery plays an important part in most weddings and we all know about the engagement and wedding rings, but that’s not the only jewellery you should think about.
Some people choose not to wear rings; they can be uncomfortable if you have skin conditions or allergies. And there are many professions where it’s just not practical to wear a ring every day, sometimes for safety reasons and sometimes because you could damage your precious ring.
But there are still ways you can wear a memento of your wedding, that won’t get in the way or get damaged. As well as the all-important engagement and wedding rings, I love the idea of a beautiful wedding necklace that can be worn discreetly every day.
And when it comes to choosing your wedding necklace, it’s good to remember to select something you’ll want to wear for many years to come, so I’d suggest avoiding anything that’s too ‘trendy’ and go for classic styles.
It took me quite a while to find a necklace that was right for me and within our budget, so if you’re struggling to decide which style or type of necklace to go for, let me give you tips I found useful. I’d suggest looking for styles that compliment your engagement and wedding rings. Selecting the same colour metal, then consider the stone cut you’ve already picked – they don’t have to match, but it’s a good place to start. Remember to pick something you’d be happy to wear for many years to come, when you’re not in your wedding dress, it would be a shame to only wear it once.
Make sure your necklace compliments your whole look. Whether you’re going for a traditional wedding dress, or something more contemporary, how your necklace sits with the shape of the neckline of your outfit is super important.
There are so many different necklines: v-neck, boat, sweetheart, off-the-shoulder, asymmetrical, halter, Queen Anne, straight, square, scoop, high neck and the list goes on! All of these will affect the length and style of your necklace – the most useful thing I found was to try the necklace on wearing a similar neck shape to what you’ll be wearing on the big day.
The neckline – and how you’ll style your hair on your big day – should influence both your earring and necklace choice, to create the perfect look. Whether you go for a simple pendant, or something with more going on, pick something that suits your own personal style. Simple is good, so it won’t look dated in your photos in years to come.
If you’re opting for a lower neckline, you can probably go a bit bigger with your necklace, such as this gorgeous round cut moissanite, vintage octagon drop pendant from Infinity Diamond Jewellery, which will add just enough glamour to complete your dream look.
A beautiful necklace is a wonderful way to set off the whole look and there’s something so special about anything you wear on your wedding day. Jewellery’s a wonderful way to keep wearing something for the rest of your wonderful lives together. When it comes to bridal necklaces, I especially love the idea of how a necklace hangs close to your heart.
Www.infinitydiamondjewellery.com has an elegant collection of bridal necklaces with prices to suit all budgets. If you want to keep it simple, a delicate drop is the perfect solution. Infinity Diamond Jewellery’s necklaces are made from the highest quality moissanite, a fabulous stone that looks similar to a diamond. They’re lab-grown – which is much more environmentally friendly than mining – and they’re still a natural mineral that will last a lifetime and never go dull or cloudy.
Moissanite is the second hardest mineral known to man, so is durable to be worn every day and you’ll notice that a moissanite produces more colourful flashes of light than a diamond and is ranked higher on the refractive index. This means a moissanite is even more brilliant than a diamond!
The other huge benefit of choosing a moissanite is the price – they can be up to 80% cheaper than a traditional diamond! A moissanite isn’t a ‘fake diamond’ it is a beautiful gem in its own right, in the same way as an emerald or sapphire is. They’re colourless, like a diamond, but they have a slightly different hue with even more sparkle!
