Weddings are hard work – choosing a dress can be very hard. There’s the venue and colour scheme decisions; not to mention the shoes! So, we don’t want your jewellery decision to be tough too. Here are 2 big mistakes that are often made when it comes to choosing your bridal jewellery and how to avoid them.
Falling for The Faux Sparkle.
When it comes to buying your wedding jewellery, quite often we think about what goes with the dress. We can see the right kind of sparkle and fall in love, without thinking about the future. Your jewellery is something that can be worn time after time, unlike your wedding dress. So, buy it to last time after time!
Some popular fashion jewellery brides choose isn’t made of precious metal, so will tarnish quickly and may turn your skin a funny green colour. Not to mention allergies – don’t need those on the big day!
We think your bridal jewellery should be one of your most prized possessions so quality is important when it comes to buying. Check your metals and your gemstones are quality; as this is one step towards your jewellery lasting a lifetime.
Settling. Because you can’t find the perfect piece.
It happens so often, we cannot find what we’re looking for. We have the perfect image of the necklace or earrings in our head but we cannot find them anywhere. So what do we do? Settle for something else.
If there’s one thing I’ve been taught in life it’s to never settle. You deserve the best, so pursue it (that goes for everything by the way!).
Have your wedding jewellery designed to match your dress or to match your perfect idea. It will be worth it on the day, and when you wear it all those years after and are instantly taken back to your first dance.
When having your jewellery designed you can also have conversations with the designer around metal and gemstone choice, to ensure your confidence in the product you are buying.
