Choosing wedding jewellery is no easy task so today I am delighted to share some advice on choosing your Wedding pearls.
Planning weddings can be stressful enough, so a wee nod in the right direction can be invaluable.
When it comes to choosing the perfect jewellery for your wedding, a bride will traditionally wear white pearls on her big day.
The delicate shine of a beautiful pearl really does make them the ideal gemstone of choice. With many different types and designs, a bride will be positively spoilt for choice.
The following suggestions are intended to give you a guide to ensuring that you find the right pearls for your wedding and that all eyes are on the bride on her perfect day.
Elegant and Classic
When choosing your wedding jewellery, pearls are to be worn as elegantly as possible.
A lovely example would be this beautiful Akoya pearl necklace pictured, where the focus is on the quality of the pearls for they will subtly reflect light towards the bride. Choose a simple white gold clasp to complete the look.
Think About Size
There are many types of cultured pearls, with south sea pearls being invariably the largest – such as the stunning necklace pictured.
When it comes to picking pearls for your wedding, it is a good idea to opt for a smaller size of pearl around 7.5-8mm diameter that complements the dress rather than overshadows it.
With this in mind, consider either freshwater or Akoya pearls when thinking about your bridal jewellery.
Less is More
Pearls are such a great choice for any bride, but it is important not to overdo it when buying pearls to complete your Wedding outfit.
Perhaps consider matching a couple of pieces which complement each other, such as a pair of classic Akoya pearl stud earrings and a pearl and diamond pendant.
If you are getting married soon and have been thinking about your choice of luxury wedding jewellery, then the advice above may help you.
Pearls are a classic choice for any bride and an elegant and subtle gemstone.
Some carefully chosen pearl jewellery will add a level of luxury to any wedding dress style and design.
