We know weddings are not going quite to anyone’s original plan at the moment. But we believe in putting our best foot forward and bridal couples will agree that it is all about stepping out in style – whatever the plan is for the big day. There is no doubt that there will still be a ceremony, maybe even a bite to eat – and definitely pictures. Jewellery is the finishing touch to a perfectly put together look – and choosing beautiful pieces that will be worn time and again long after the I-dos are a beautiful and sentimental way to mark a new chapter in a lifetime of love. There is so much focus from the waist up – whether it’s the exchange of the rings, raising a toast or sitting down to dinner – this is where the sparkle should be.
For her, a dramatic pair of drop earrings can add glamour and fun while an intricate diamond pendant will always be elegant. Bracelets can be a lovely finishing touch although an important consideration should be given to the style when paired with the fabric of the dress. As arms brush against sides more than is possibly realised, a situation should be avoided where a bracelet could potentially catch and snag the delicate fabric of a bridal gown. In the same vein, a brooch is probably not ideal pinned through an important dress – but it can look ideal as a hair ornament, holding a veil in place or sewn neatly by a hairstylist into the side of an updo.

And we will never not champion the lapel pin; add red carpet glamour with a subtle diamond bar brooch or go for something whimsical and fun – this sword pin, with beautiful enamel work, seed pearls and a ruby is a real treasure.
