guides on choosing jewellery for your wedding - DeGem



The day has finally come. You have found the perfect wedding dress, the perfect wedding venue, and of course, the perfect someone to share in your happily ever after. All that's left is to choose the perfect bridal jewellery. In many cultures, wearing jewellery beautifully designed with symbolic meaning also signify loving blessings for the marriage.


In this guide, we'll show you how you can choose and invest in the right jewellery for your wedding —to complement your overall look and last you for days beyond the wedding. Read on to learn how you can accessorize flawlessly for your special day.



the right jewellery will complement your overall look for your wedding - DeGem



1.    Match your bling with your dress


Your wedding dress is the star of the show — which is why your jewellery should be chosen to complement it, but not compete with it.


If your dress is simple and understated, then you are able to wear pieces with more elaborate gemstones, or in bolder iconic designs. If your dress is already very ornate or heavily beaded, then you might want to keep your jewellery as simple as possible, with classic diamond jewellery such as a diamond tennis bracelet or a pair of diamond earrings.


It's also a good idea to choose jewellery that goes with your fabrics. For instance, dresses made from satin or silk offer the perfect backdrop for diamonds and pearls. Coloured gemstones, on the other hand, look outstanding when paired with traditional fabrics such as vintage lace.


One more thing: Don't overaccessorize. Stick to a few key pieces rather than adorning every inch of your body. Wedding earrings, a bracelet or a necklace are good, subtle choices to begin with for any wedding. These accessories add just the right amount of a modest yet elegant touch to any bride's ensemble.

2.    Go for something you'd wear more than once


With beautiful, timeless jewellery, you'll be able to look back on your wedding day with fond memories for years to come. Choose pieces you can wear long after the wedding, such as for work or other occasions.


Case in point, we’d go for modern gemstone or diamond jewellery over chunky traditional gold pieces, as — let’s be honest — it’s not likely you’ll ever wear them again after the wedding. For Chinese brides, consider modern jade, Emerald or pearl pieces for a stunning match with a cheongsam.

3.    Match colours well


Colourful jewellery can be lovely, but only if it complements your skin tone and clothing. Try to go for at most one or two colours. They need to match well with your dress. Too many colours can be overpowering.


While there are no hard and fast rules, some precious metals do work better with certain hues. A pure white gown, for example, looks best with colourless white diamonds and white metals such as silver, white gold, and platinum. Pearls are also always a good idea. In contrast, an ivory gown looks best paired with rose gold or yellow gold, Emeralds, and other gemstones since it complements the warmer tones in the fabric.

4.    Comfort above all else


Comfort is paramount when it comes to choosing jewellery for a wedding. The pieces you choose should be comfy enough to wear throughout the day and into the night. So, if you're having a grand ballroom reception, get some statement jewellery that matches the grandness of the setting — like opulent gemstone or diamond necklaces.


It is always a good idea to try on jewellery pieces physically when you shop, in order to experience how which jewels are most comfortable and stunning on you. Like shopping for a wedding dress, necklaces and earrings may look understated when displayed in the boutique, but surprisingly magnificent on you when worn.


If you plan on dancing, try lighter weight earrings or pendants.




Choosing the right bridal jewellery is as important as choosing the right dress, as the right quality jewellery can elevate your elegance and sophistication on your big day. Afterall, for your once-in-a-lifetime, you are the star of your show, or the princess of the day.
