Brides and bridesmaids should be wearing diamond jewellery – an eternally fashionable and elegant choice of jewellery for the big day. In today’s blog post, we take a look at the various looks a bridal party can achieve with diamond jewellery.

How to: The bridal party and diamond jewellery


1. Earrings

Earrings for the bride depend on the choice of hair style, for an up do and for the bride that seeks simplicity and elegance – we recommend diamond studs. They suit all face shapes and are a great way to bring out any eye colour, adding just the right amount of sparkle.

2. Necklaces

Depending on the style of dress – the bride’s necklace will vary. For a low neck, a necklace is advised, but remember to keep it a simple yet stunning diamond necklace ... it must never take away from your dress. For a high neck, you may want to consider leaving the necklace and opting for more detailed earrings instead as you will not want to take away from the elegance and gracefulness that a high neck aims to bring.

For the bridesmaids – a simple diamond necklace is effective. Again, their dresses shouldn’t be compromised, so think about something simple and timeless as seen above.


3. Bracelets

For a bride, the ring is the most important piece of jewellery worn on the hand and so should you choose to wear a diamond bracelet, depending on the size – its a good idea to think about wearing it on the opposite hand to that of your wedding ring.

For the bridesmaids, bracelets are a lovely way to add some sparkle to their day. But simplicity is key, so opt for something that is simple yet timeless – as previously mentioned, silver will always achieves this.

Top tips for diamond jewellery on your wedding day

  1. If you are wearing diamonds that you have bought previously – make sure they are in tip top condition. This is not something everybody thinks about in the build up to their wedding, but it’s important to ensure you get your diamonds cleaned.
  2. Don’t go overboard. It’s a day when elegance is key, you should have as much sparkle as you wish but be careful not to take away from the most important diamond – the engagement ring or the most important piece of clothing – the dress.
  3. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and never more so than on her wedding day. Don’t stray too far from the tradition of diamonds on the big day simply because few other jewellery materials offer the simplicity and elegance that diamonds do. It’s hard to think of something so refined and something that matches as well with everything the way diamonds do.
