How to Find The Perfect Wedding Jewellery For Your Big Day

Why Wedding Day Jewellery Matters For Your Big Day

Accessories are essential elements that complete your bridal ensemble, transforming a beautiful dress into a breath taking look by adding depth, dimension, and a touch of glamour. The right jewellery can highlight the best features of your wedding dress, express your style, and create a cohesive appearance that ties together your clothing, hairstyle, and overall wedding theme.

Moreover, wedding jewellery often carries sentimental value, especially if it includes heirloom pieces or customised elements, making it beautiful and meaningful. On your wedding day, wearing something special, whether bold and statement-making or delicate and intricate, can make you feel extraordinary, enhancing your confidence and beauty as you walk down the aisle.

How To Select The Perfect Wedding Day Jewellery

Selecting the perfect wedding day jewellery involves finding pieces that complement your dress and personal style and make you feel confident and comfortable. Whether you’re matching necklaces to your dress neckline, or incorporating sentimental ‘something borrowed’ items, each choice helps create a cohesive and meaningful bridal look.

Comfort & style when selecting wedding jewellery

The most important aspect of your wedding jewellery is how it makes you feel, so choose pieces that boost your confidence and comfort. Choose items you’re familiar with and suit your style rather than trying something new and untested on your big day.

When selecting the perfect bridal jewellery, diamonds and pearls are classic choices as they add elegance and sophistication to any bridal look. Diamond earrings can provide a sparkling touch, while pearls bring a timeless and vintage appeal. According to Pinterest’s recent wedding report, pearl jewellery is highly sought after, with searches rising over 560%.

It’s also important that your chosen jewellery metal complements your dress and other accessories. For example, silver and white gold pair well with white or cool-toned dresses, while yellow gold and rose gold look stunning with warm-toned or ivory gowns.

Jewellery to suit your neckline and hairstyle

If you want to wear a necklace on your big day, it should complement the neckline of your wedding dress. For a sweetheart or strapless dress, a shorter necklace or a choker works beautifully, while a high neckline might not need a necklace at all, allowing earrings or a bracelet to take centre stage.

While you should consider matching earrings to your occasion, you should also consider matching them to your chosen hairstyle for the day. If you’re planning an updo, consider drop or chandelier earrings to add a touch of glamour. For loose or down hairstyles, studs or small hoops can be a more subtle choice that still offers elegance without overwhelming your look.

Adding personal meaning to your bridal jewellery

Your wedding jewellery should not only be beautiful but also personal. Adding customised elements can make your pieces truly unique and meaningful. While it can be tempting to follow current jewellery trends, choose jewellery that personally resonates with you.

Customising your jewellery with birthstones or engravings adds a personal touch. Consider incorporating your birthstone, your partner’s, or both into your pieces. Engravings can include your initials, partner’s, or new last name, making the jewellery uniquely yours.

Incorporating family heirlooms can add a layer of sentimentality to your bridal look. A vintage bracelet from a grandmother or a ring passed down through generations adds a touch of history and sentimentality, making your wedding jewellery even more special.

Something borrowed, something blue: Jewellery for sentimental value

Incorporating the tradition of ‘something borrowed, something blue’ into your wedding jewellery can add a touch of sentiment and charm to your bridal ensemble. These elements follow a beloved tradition, allowing you to integrate meaningful pieces into your look.

Borrowing jewellery from family members or close friends can imbue your wedding day with sentimental value. These pieces often carry stories and memories, connecting you to your loved ones. The necklace your mother wore on her wedding day, or earrings passed down through generations, can become cherished parts of your bridal attire.

Finding ways to incorporate ‘something blue’ can be fun and meaningful. Blue gemstones, such as sapphires or aquamarines, can be integrated into your earrings, necklace, or engagement ring. Turquoise is particularly popular in jewellery and is incorporated in the latest high-jewellery collections.



Choosing the right wedding jewellery is about finding pieces that enhance your bridal look, reflect your style, and hold sentimental value. Whether you opt for timeless diamonds and pearls, customised pieces, or incorporate meaningful heirlooms, your jewellery should make you feel confident and beautiful on your big day.
