8 Pro Tips – Choosing the Perfect Wedding Day Jewellery for Him & Her

Wedding jewellery etiquette tips by TheDiamondStoreUKWITH the wedding season fast approaching, questions are arising about what wedding jewellery brides and grooms should wear? And importantly, how you should wear it?

Well, we’ve done a thorough search of all the biggest wedding fashion blogs and sites for you, to come up with a helpful list of wedding jewellery DO’S and DONT’S, for both him and her!

Wedding jewellery tips for the BRIDE:

1. BALANCE THE DRESS – Jewellery can make or break your dress, as much as your shoes or hairpiece can. As a rule of thumb…

♦ A heavily decorated dress looks best with simple jewellery
♦ Halterneck, sleeveless and asymmetrical dresses look stunning with drop earrings
♦ Pendants, long necklaces and chokers work with deep V-necks
♦ A statement jewellery piece should be balanced with small items
♦ If in doubt, wear a pair of diamond earrings and a diamond bracelet

2. MIX AND MATCH – The old saying, “something old, new, borrowed and blue” is very on trend right now. Combining heirloom jewellery with new pieces, or adding colour with gemstones, is a great look to go for. However, you should only mix items with similar styles. An antique pendant may look good with a faux-vintage bracelet, but it won’t go with a geometric 80’s bangle!

3. IT’S OK TO BUDGET – You should spend as much as you can afford on your wedding bands, but the rest of your jewellery doesn’t have to cost the moon. Your ring may be platinum, but who’s going to know your earrings are silver or 9K white gold?

4. ORDER EARLY – Not all wedding jewellery items are “off the shelf” and your retailer may have to make, resize or order them for you. Ideally, give yourself at least three months to plan.

Wedding jewellery tips for the GROOM:

1. MATCH YOUR METALS – Men’s wedding accessories used to be limited to rings, cufflinks, watches and tie bars. Today, boys are “allowed” to wear much more: bracelets, earrings, pendants and ethnic or religious jewellery. However, the old rule still applies: don’t mix your metals. Stick to either gold or silver tones, whether it’s a belt buckle or lapel pin you’re combining. EXCEPTION: You don’t have to match your wedding ring with other items, it stands in its own right.

Now is a great time to wear those heirloom cufflinks2. BE MEANINGFUL – Do you have an emotional piece of jewellery? Now’s a great time to wear those heirloom cufflinks or your military service pin.

3. SHOW RESTRAINT – Unless your ethnicity or religion demands otherwise, it’s never a good idea to outshine the bride on her wedding day. So avoid going all Mr. T and stick to 1-3 carefully selected items instead. It’s OK to wear one statement piece, like quirky designer cufflinks, but the rest of your accessories should be few, and kept low key.

4. STAY IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE – This isn’t the day to go for a wild new style. A wedding day is stressful enough and she won’t be impressed if you rock up to the altar with pierced ears you didn’t have before. If you don’t normally wear any jewellery, then don’t do it today either. Your wedding ring and your bride will be decoration enough!

A Man’s Guide to Jewellery

A Man’s Guide to Jewellery

A classic watch is undoubtedly a man’s favourite fashion accessory. Conservative men might go so far as to say that any other piece of jewellery is a definite no-no. We unquestionably believe that this is because they haven’t experimented with male jewellery! The modern man, these days’ looks stylish while wearing a bracelet, chain or ring. Below we have outlined some key details for the modern day man to pick out the perfect jewellery for himself.

Rules to bear in mind:

1.  Keep It Simple

When in doubt, keep it simple.  Start with a classic leather or metal strapped watch because guys… time keeping is essential for dates and picking up children!

Once you’re comfortable with your first piece, then you can start to introduce other jewellery pieces like necklaces, bracelets and rings but keep pieces to a minimum.

2. Bracelets

The trick with the bracelet is, don’t go too thin. Opt for simplicity and classic styles since a man should be able to wear his bracelet every day, whether for a work meeting or a get together.

3. Necklace

Every man needs at least one necklace in his fashion accessory collection. Whether it be a religious emblem or just an accessory. Necklaces should be bold and simple, not multi-colored, clumsy or overweight. A simple chain is usually the option and it is best worn under a shirt or tee.

4. Rings

Wearing a simple ring can be both suave and stylish at the same time. Besides a wedding ring, you can also wear it on your little finger, middle finger or even your thumb. Choose something that you think will pair up with your usual attire. Something small and discrete if you have working hands or something a little more flashy for special occasions. The ring can’t be too big because it’ll seem disproportionate with your fingers, and will come across as flashy.

5.  Colour Code

Gold and silver tones are the most common for mens jewellery. Sadly guys, we think it looks better to stick to one tone at a time.

Gold is a warmer colour and reads like a yellow accent in terms of the colour wheel.  It goes well with browns and other earth tones, as well as with deep hues like royal blue or hunter green.

Silver and silver-tone metals are neutral.  They read similarly to greys outside the colour wheel, falling instead on the black-to-white gradient.  That means it can be paired with most colour combinations. Match silver jewellery with black or dark grey clothing for a sleek, timeless look, or you can wear it with lighter colours in the summer .

Below we have collated our mens top picks! Let us know what you think.

Mens Diamond Stud Earrings

Mens Single Stone Diamond Earring 0.5CT in 18KWOver the past few years more and more men are wearing more and more jewellery, especially diamond jewellery.  I would say the most popular piece of Diamond Jewellery is the Mens Diamond Stud Earrings.


Nearly all the popstars, rappers, footballers including David Beckham wear diamond earrings.  Mainly they wear diamond studs in one ear although David Beckham does or did seem to wear them in both ears which I personally don’t like.  It´s too girly.  I think single men’s diamond stud is quite nice and sexy.    But not too big and not too small.  Its a bit like Goldilocks, its got to be just right.  So the size of diamond you need really depends on the size of your earlobe.  If you are buying a mens diamond stud earring for your boyfriend, husband or son and worried about the size, don’t worry, you can change it no problem.


Here are some of the most popular men’s diamond stud earrings with reviews that you can read yourself.  As a woman, I absolutely love my diamond stud earrings, they are the most comfortable earring I have ever worn.

Diamond jewellery for Fathers’ Day

If you’re stuck for something to buy for Fathers Day this Sunday then you might find some inspiration from what five of the most fashionable Hollywood dads are wearing at the moment:

David Beckham. Father to Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo (with a daughter on the way) is a real fashion icon and sometimes described as “metrosexual”.  He takes basic items of clothing and wears them out of context (like a sarong), accessorised with a diamond earring or over size diamond ring.

Brad Pitt. Father to 6 children is the epitome of laid back cool. Likes the vintage-looking faded jeans with a well-worn t-shirt look shown off by a thick neck chain or large signet ring.

Will Smith. Father to Trey, Jaden and Willow.  Sports the elegant-yet-relaxed look and almost always wears one or two diamond stud earrings.

Johnny Depp. Father to Lily Rose and Jack. Has been described as an “icon of eccentric cool” accessorised with fedoras, bandanas, necklaces, dog tags and quirky sunglasses.

Patrick Dempsey. Father to Tallulah Fyfe, Sullivan and Darby who keeps to the timeless and classic look wearing just a gold and diamond ring or a pair of traditional diamond cufflinks.
