What Jewellery Style Works Best with Bridal Wear?
Posted on 19 December 2017
Wondering about what kind of jewellery to wear on your wedding day? We understand that you want to look simply perfect and in a way that makes you stand out. This means that everything – gown, makeup, footwear and jewellery – has to be just right.
As Bella Krystal is all about bridal jewellery, let’s focus on the jewellery options to go with your bridal ensemble
If your wedding gown is the most critical piece of your ensemble, your jewellery too plays a big role in defining your bridal look. When it comes to jewellery options, you have three choices: Wear something vintage inspired (resembling designs of eras gone by), go minimalist (wear very simple jewellery) or don something in contemporary (modernist, innovative) style.
Vintage style jewellery
When jewellery designs are inspired by the styles of eras gone by, the jewellery is called vintage inspired. Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian, art nouveau, art deco – all are vintage styles. Most vintage inspired designs are decorative – characterised by ornate floral or geometric designs and flowing curves and contours. Vintage jewellery is all about elegance, luxury and charm.
Genuine vintage jewellery is prohibitively expensive and out of reach for most of us. Of course, there may be some brides-to-be lucky enough to be able to buy authentic vintage or inherit mint condition vintage jewellery pieces from their mothers or grandmothers. For the rest of us, quality vintage inspired jewellery is the next best choice (that’s exactly what Bella Krystal offers).
Minimalist jewellery is all about simplicity. Think a simple chain or a single line pearl string or solitaire studs in your ears. Minimalist jewellery is all about subtlety and understated grace.
At Bella Krystal, we have several lovely minimalist pieces lined up for you.
Contemporary jewellery is hallmarked by a variety of regular as well as innovative base materials – metal, wood, fabric, glass, plastic, clay, paper, unusual gemstones etc. The designs too can be varied – from bold sculptural to delicate abstracts to unusual graphics. Contemporary jewellery is all about new age concepts and expression.
Vintage inspired, minimalist or contemporary – what works better for your bridal look?
Let’s face it. Contemporary jewellery is not everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to bridal wear. Top of the line contemporary jewellery is really expensive. Mid and low-priced contemporary jewellery is rarely classy enough to work with bridal ensembles.
Minimalist jewellery works well if you are wearing a truly ornate and heavily embellished wedding gown that doesn’t need any further jazzing up. You can also mix minimalist and vintage jewellery for a more balanced look.
Being a great blend of aesthetics, luxury and charm, vintage inspired jewellery is a perfect match for bridal wear. Of course, you need to ensure that your chosen pieces have been made with quality materials and painstaking craftsmanship.
At Bella Krystal Online Jewellery Store, we have a vast range of gorgeous minimalist and vintage inspired jewellery for you to choose from. Made using authentic and flawless Swarovski crystals, cubic zirconia, glass pearls and freshwater pearls, crafted with exquisite workmanship and plated with 18K gold or rhodium for impeccable finish, each and every Bella Krystal piece is a joy to wear on your big day.
