The do’s and don’ts of choosing wedding jewellery

Choosing your wedding jewellery can be a difficult task. SP Green has a large selection of wedding jewellery in Birmingham that you can browse, so here is some advice to help you choose jewel

The Don’ts!

Don’t Wear Too Much Jewellery.

The phrase ‘less is more’ is true with regards to wedding jewellery. If you wear too many items of jewellery you run the risk of people not being able to appreciate each individual piece. Additionally, if you have lots of sparkle in your dress and you choose to wear lots of sparkly jewellery with earrings, a tiara, a large necklace, bracelets and rings, it might be overpowering and again, prevent guests from appreciating the beauty of the pieces that you are wearing.

So, instead of choosing to wear lots of pieces of jewellery, instead focus on a few eye-catching, beautiful and memorable items of jewellery to wear on your special day. Perhaps you could wear a necklace and your engagement ring as you walk down the aisle. That way you can choose an exquisitely beautiful necklace that works wonderfully with your wedding dress.

Don’t Wait Until The Last Moment.

This is a very important tip, if you leave any aspect of your wedding shopping to the last moment, you’ll be in a rush. You wouldn’t want to be in a situation where you may be unhappy with the jewellery that you wear on your special day.

So give yourself plenty of time and write a list of your likes and dislikes, spend lots of time browsing different pieces of bridal jewellery and after you have spent some time searching and researching, choose the pieces that you want to wear on your special day.

If you would like to browse the collection of wedding jewellery in Birmingham that is available from SP Green, you can visit us at one of our three locations in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, or you can browse a selection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings on our online store.

Additionally, if you start your jewellery shopping as soon as possible, you’ll have time to consider a second set of jewellery. Many brides have two dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the reception; if you’re considering the two dress approach, a second set of jewellery to wear with your second dress could be a fantastic idea to show off your sense of style and wear some beautiful pieces of wedding jewellery.

Don’t Forget About The Groom

Many wedding jewellery guides often focus on jewellery for the bride to wear. However, grooms deserve some special jewellery too; perhaps you could purchase some special cufflinks to wear for the wedding.

The Do’s!

Do Think About Your Engagement Ring When Shopping For Wedding Rings.

A very important item of wedding jewellery is of course your wedding rings.

When shopping for your wedding rings, it is very important that you search for your wedding rings together, that way you can give each other feedback on different styles and materials. Additionally, if you want your wedding rings to match, shopping together is a fantastic way to find two wedding rings that work together as a pair.

However, do not forget about your engagement ring. Many people choose a wedding ring that matches their engagement ring; however you could also take a different approach and choose a ring that stands out. There is no right or wrong approach when making this decision, so give yourself plenty of time and think, do you want the rings to be appreciated as a set, or do you want them to stand out and be seen as two separate rings?

Do Choose Sentimental Pieces

One way that you can make your wedding jewellery feel extra special for your special day can be to choose to wear a piece of sentimental jewellery. Perhaps it was a gift from a loved one or perhaps it is a family heirloom; wearing a piece of sentimental jewellery provides you with an extra special piece to wear as you walk down the aisle.

However, if you do not have a family heirloom that you can wear; why don’t you create one? With our bespoke jewellery service you could design a piece of jewellery that you can wear for your special day. You could then pass this item of jewellery down in your family to younger relatives as they get married, creating a wonderful family tradition for the many years to come.

Do Find Jewellery For The Bridesmaids And Ushers.

Whilst you’re searching for your wedding jewellery, don’t forget about the people at your side. Your bridesmaids and ushers deserve something special too!

Perhaps you could create beautiful pieces of bespoke jewellery for them to wear at your wedding that they can keep to remind them of the special occasion, and thank them for their help during your special day.
