The best jewellery for a low-key wedding
Tying the knot in a laid-back, intimate setting? Great choice. Now, let’s talk about the bridal jewellery – you’ll probably want pieces that match the vibe of your day: understated, yet chic. Here’s a quick guide on picking the best jewellery for a low-key wedding, keeping things simple yet stylish.
1. Subtle Sparkles:
Dainty necklaces: A delicate chain with a small pendant adds just the right touch of elegance. Opt for a solitaire diamond necklace to tie in with your diamond engagement ring.
Simple earrings: Think small studs or minimalistic drop earrings – classic pearls or diamonds work a treat. You could also opt for gemstone earrings, if you have a gemstone engagement ring.
2. Understated rings:
Thin bands: Your wedding band doesn’t have to be extravagant. A sleek, slender band can be both elegant and understated. You can also stack eternity rings on your other hand, to keep the look more informal.
3. Less is more:
Keep it simple: Don’t feel pressured to wear every type of jewellery or to have a full ‘matching set’. If you wouldn’t wear matching earrings, necklace and bracelet daily, you may not want to on your big day either. Sometimes, just a pair of earrings or a bracelet is all you need. Consider your dress and overall wedding style. If everything else is low-key, your jewellery should follow suit.
4. Personal touches:
Sentimental pieces: Got a family heirloom or a piece of jewellery with sentimental value? Your wedding day is the perfect time to wear it. You can also incorporate other wedding traditions into your wedding jewellery, such as ‘something borrowed’ (maybe borrow a family member’s beloved diamond necklace) and ‘something blue’ (incorporate blue sapphires or lab-grown coloured diamonds into your look).
5. Think about the long-term:
Re-wear value: f you’ve opted for a low-key wedding, you might be thinking about ways to make sure your special day is sustainable, or how you can reuse things after the event. And your jewellery should be no exception! So make sure to choose pieces you can wear regularly after your wedding, that fit with your style and day-to-day outfits.
