We don’t know if you’ve seen anything in the media, but there’s a certain wedding occurring in Windsor on Saturday. Alongside this mysterious ceremony, there’s been a whole lot of focus on everything bridal in the media. We thought, as purveyors of high-quality, eclectic jewellery, we’d run through some alternative wedding jewellery styles, rather than the ones you might see on your television on Saturday. From animal-inspired designs to green amber and beyond, this guide will leave you filled with stunning jewellery ideas - whether you’re in the wedding party or an honoured guest.
Pure pearl inspiration
Kicking things off is a fairly well-known vintage look, as the simple lines of pearl based jewellery are an excellent subtle style option for a traditionally themed wedding. Our elegant Silver and Pearl Blossom Drop Earrings are a beautifully simple option, but if you’re looking for something with a little more zazz and sparkle, then the Pearl, Cubic Zirconia and Silver Earrings (pictured below) are your best bet, combining the muted elegance of pearl with the shine of a cubic zirconia.
If a classic themed wedding is not your style, and you want more of a woodland festival vibe to your ceremony, then you’ll need the jewellery to match. Our options on this front are as varied as the flora and fauna that you can find in the deepest woodland. Green amber jewellery, such as our Green Amber and Pearl Marquise Shaped Earrings, injects a certain amount of subtlety into your style for a magical woodland wedding. Green amber is a material created from fossilised tree sap from millions of years ago, so you’re literally wearing part of an ancient woodland on your ears. If amber earrings aren’t your style, then try the same design on a delicate silver chain around your neck. For further woodland themes, this time using dainty silver, try our recently released range of royal fern leaf jewellery - appropriately named, as we think it’s fit for a royal wedding. Our Silver Royal Fern Leaf Miniature Necklace (featured in the introductory image) is perfect for an understated yet regal back to nature look, especially when it is combined with the other pieces in the collection.
Regal colours: amethyst
Purples and violets have long been colours associated with nobility and royalty, so what better time than the present to show off our range of amethyst jewellery? While not a colour typically associated with weddings, we think these would look great as a more unique bridal jewellery option. Richly coloured in a gloriously royal purple, the Amethyst & Silver Simple Teardrop Necklace is the epitome of elegance. Amethyst as a material was feted by royal families in the medieval era, so for a historical nod to the lavish ceremonies and feasts of that period, choose amethyst as one of your wedding’s principal styles.
