WEDDING JEWELLERY – TIPS AND IDEAS
Wedding jewellery is the finishing touch to any bride’s look, but it all starts with a ring! The engagement ring and wedding ring duo is classically beautiful and timelessly elegant. These pieces of wedding jewellery signify that their wearer is in love and spoken for. The power of these small items to communicate volumes about you and your partner is immense. Not least they are an expression of your personal style and taste that will shine on your finger, even when you reach 100 years old.
The history of the engagement ring dates back centuries from the time the Roman’s gave their brides an iron hoop to symbolise their unity to the sparkler that we receive today. Since the 20th century, when diamonds became widely enough available, they became the official engagement gem. Today they are still at the top of Australian brides-to-be wish lists. To the inexperienced eye, two diamonds may look exactly the same, leaving you wondering why there is such a significant difference in the price. Get to know the 4C’s that determine the value of a diamond.
The design possibilities of engagement rings are endless. Along with the various stones, colours and shapes there is also the design surrounding your stone, and the way in which it is set to the ring. There are several different settings you can choose from and each way will affect the overall look of your wedding rings. Check out our settings article and decide which one will suit you and your chosen rock.
Choosing a wedding ring is a simple task as long as you abide by a few rules. Number one – make sure your band doesn’t overpower your engagement ring, instead make sure it is complementary. Secondly consider the style of your engagement ring and find a band that will work well with the style, your jeweller should be able to help you with this. There are some more tips on how to choose your wedding band in the wedding bands article.
Once you have your sparkling wedding rings in your hot little hands, you need to look after them! There are some very simple cleaning techniques including a soapy bath, cold-water soak, professional jewellery cleaner and more. Find a method that suits you. One last note – make sure you insure your precious pieces of jewellery!
When you’ve finalised the wedding rings it’s time to think about your remaining wedding jewellery. There are no wedding jewellery rules. This is the time to embrace your style and choose pieces that reflect you. When deciding on your wedding jewellery take into account the style and time of your wedding, the type of gown you’ll be wearing, the neckline and how you’ll style your hair. Brides are experimenting more with coloured gems and statement pieces to complete their wedding day look. It’s a case of ‘anything goes’.
