Bridal Jewellery

Jewelry has the power to make or break an outfit, and it’s easy to see why when you look at some of the dazzling pieces out there. Your wedding day should be no exception! Whether you’re choosing earrings or an engagement ring, there are important considerations to think about before buying that special jewelry. In this article, we’ll go over some general guidelines on what makes good jewelry and how to pick out pieces that are right for bridal wear.

The most popular wedding ring

It used to be that most brides wore engagement rings and wedding bands in matching metals. In recent years, however, women have taken a different approach—wearing their engagement ring on one hand and wearing something else—like a plain band or a colored stone—on their other hand.

This trend has changed somewhat with some brides choosing simple gold bands in lieu of more elaborate pieces. Still, there are several options to choose from; here are just three platinum, white gold and yellow gold.

Platinum: Platinum is a metal that’s known for its strength, durability and resistance to tarnishing. Many jewelers say it’s also hypoallergenic, which means it doesn’t cause allergic reactions in people who wear it (some people are allergic to certain metals). White Gold: White gold is an alloy made up of yellow gold combined with palladium or silver.

Avoiding allergies

If you’re looking to avoid any allergies that may be triggered by certain metals, opt for rings made of gold or gold alloys. Gold is hypoallergenic, so it won’t cause skin irritations and allergic reactions like other metals might. While platinum used to be recommended over gold as an alternative metal, it’s important to note that some people can still have skin reactions to platinum. If you do choose platinum, consider one with a high percentage of rhodium plating (at least 90%)—this will help reduce irritation in your skin. Alternatives include tungsten carbide and titanium, but if you’re particularly prone to allergies these may not be good options either.

The value of an heirloom

While you may be tempted to purchase your future spouse an expensive bauble from Tiffany’s, save your pennies and opt instead for a classic and timeless piece of jewelry.

An heirloom provides sentimental value and tells others about who you are and where you come from. In fact, choosing a family heirloom or something passed down through generations will tell your spouse’s family more about you than any five-carat diamond can. It also means less money spent in exchange for far more personalized and meaningful engagement rings.

Options for a vintage look

One of today’s most popular trends in bridal jewelry combines precious and semi-precious stones. Gemstones are durable, beautiful, and are often more affordable than diamond. As an added bonus, you can buy them as a set so you don’t have to worry about mixing different styles or matching colors.

So why aren’t more brides opting for gems instead of diamonds? According to one survey, most women wouldn’t consider buying something other than diamonds if they were shopping for themselves. That could be because they believe that gemstones don’t last forever. Another reason might be cost: many retailers list diamond engagement rings as best sellers, even though gemstone options may actually be much more affordable!

Real vs fake diamonds

You might have heard that when it comes to diamonds, most women will tell you they want the real thing. But not all diamonds are created equal—even if they look alike. There are different qualities of diamonds and each has its own set of pros and cons. A good rule of thumb: If you don’t have a lot of cash to spare, stick with cubic zirconia or other synthetic diamond alternatives; these stones tend to be less expensive than natural diamonds but offer many of their best qualities at a fraction of their cost.

It can also be harder to spot which ones are real and which aren’t, so that’s another perk in your pocket. However, if you do happen to have some extra money lying around, then go ahead and splurge on a real one! Natural diamonds come in an array of colors, cuts and clarity levels that make them truly unique.

Plus, there’s something special about knowing exactly where your sparkler came from (and who cut it). Real versus fake: Which should you choose? Check out our infographic below to find out!

Gold vs platinum vs silver

Which metals are best for bridal and wedding jewelry? There are many different types of metals you can choose from when shopping for your bridal jewelry. Most people go with 14k gold, but platinum and silver are also popular. However, both silver and platinum have important pros and cons that need to be taken into consideration before making a decision.

Gold vs Platinum vs Silver: Which Metal Should You Choose For Bridal Jewelry or Wedding Jewelry?[9] This post will compare all three metals so you can make an informed decision about which metal is best for bridal jewelry.

Choosing games over diamonds

If you want something that sparkles but can’t afford or are allergic to diamonds, opt for moissanite. The lab-grown gemstone (which looks and acts like a diamond) has all of that dazzle without all of that crazy price tag.

 It’s also one of few options on our list that won’t turn your fingers green, so if you’re prone to ring envy—or just have really sensitive skin—you’re in luck. Another great option: sapphires, especially if you’re looking for something blue with an earthy feel. Sapphire is often called the stone of love because it’s believed to be able to promote feelings of trust and security. You might not be ready for marriage yet, but it never hurts to start thinking about what kind of stone you’d like when that day comes. Oh, and don’t forget about wedding bands! That little bit of metal goes a long way toward making sure your special day goes off without a hitch. Choose wisely!

Custom-made pieces

What’s best about buying custom-made pieces of jewelry is that you can choose whatever material and size to suit your needs. For example, if you need something large and heavy, such as inlaid precious stones or gold chains with pendants, you may want to purchase a special setting that’s more durable than standard settings.

Or if you have specific tastes when it comes to color, designing your own ring or necklace might be ideal. Whatever material and design decisions you make will be final; once a piece of custom-made jewelry leaves the shop it cannot be returned. That’s why it’s important to make sure you know exactly what you want before making any commitments!


Jewelry plays an important role in nearly every wedding, so choosing pieces that are best for bridal can be tricky. It’s often helpful to think of your wedding day as a series of events with distinct looks and feels. Selecting different pieces based on these separate aesthetics will help you feel confident and look beautiful throughout all of your big moments—especially when it comes to wearing some sparkle on your big day!
