Considering a wedding ring can last for a lifetime, it’s worth taking some time on the choice.
A ring has to last a lifetime and also represent the couple in question. Compared to something that might only be worn for a single day, it makes sense to spend a little more time on a wedding ring. These days if you’re going for precious metal you’ll probably opt for platinum, while diamond rings continue to have a very special appeal.
The rings and other jewellery will be under a bright spotlight on your wedding day, so when you’re choosing it you’ll need to decide how it fits in with the shape, style and colour of your dress, and the general theme of your wedding.
If you’re going for a strapless dress then the choice of jewellery should be almost limitless. You can choose from a wide range of different styles with your shoulder and neck bare. Whatever dazzles will immediately catch the eye so you’ll get extra sparkle from bracelets and earrings.
If you’ve chosen a spaghetti-strap dress, the necklace should work together with the straps. Halter neck dresses, though, would tend to overshadow a necklace as the neckline alone is enough – so the sparkle here will probably come from earrings and bracelets.
Vintage-inspired jewellery would be particularly good for the more traditional silk or satin gowns, or those adorned with lace. This is also the perfect chance to wear some much-loved family items that has been passed down through the generations. If you’re buying afresh, pearls have become popular in recent years with designers focusing on purity and flowing shape of simple materials of dresses. These designs can easily be overshadowed by a large cluster of diamonds but that’s not the case with pearls which serve as a wonderful accompaniment.
As you read this, you may still be looking to purchase the engagement ring and are eager to impress – especially as it’s not usually a mutual decision. These days if you’re going for precious metal you’ll probably opt for platinum, while diamond rings continue to have a very special appeal.
The rings and other items of jewellery are a lifelong reminder of your commitment to each other – so make sure you choose something that resonates.
