I am so very much over seeing traditional pearls and platinum being pushed on to brides as if they are the only options available when you get married. If you wear pearls (which I do, and did!) then obviously they would be a choice, likewise, if you prefer silver over gold you will be drawn to that but it is quite OK to say f*ck it to all of the above and wear whatever the hell you want. This is also a good gift guide for bridesmaids/fiancé/friends. I may have bought a couple of pairs of earrings off the back of it!
Whether it is fine or costume, turquoise or opal. I think it is time we shift things away from traditional ‘wedding day’ jewellery in favour of expressing your personality through the medium of golds and tanzanite. I have tried to section this post in to price bands rather than types of jewellery because I think sticking to your budget is essential when planning, and really, jewellery is just a bit of fun. Pretty, shiny, sparkly, beautiful fun.
I have tried to keep the jewellery on the subtle side because your dress will want to steal the show, but if you have quite a plain dress then by all means go all out with the lion rings and spiked earrings! If you have some kind of jewellery idea in mind but can’t find it then let me know because I can guarantee I will be able to locate it for you!
I love the idea of wearing your new initials to be. I think it would make a really sweet morning of the wedding gift (just in case any grooms to be are reading!) or likewise, the initials of your bridesmaids to each of them.
I was very tame in this category, I decided to stay under £500.
