The days are getting longer and we can start enjoying the sunshine more again. With spring approaching, wedding season is also around the corner! When we think of weddings, we immediately think of a beautiful wedding dress, man in suit and a romantic ceremony. During a wedding, wedding rings are of course essential. But apart from that, there are many more stunning pieces of jewellery to complete your bridal outfit! In this blog, we will tell you which jewellery completes the look of both the bride and the groom!
For the bride, the jewellery she wears at her wedding is of course completely dependent on the dress she is wearing. Therefore, the jewellery is almost always selected only once the perfect dress has been found. Indeed, jewellery can easily be adapted to the style of the wedding dress. The style of jewellery also often depends on certain trends. In the past, for example, jewellery with pearls was often worn during a wedding. The white pearl was seen as a symbol of eternity and was therefore perfect for a wedding. In addition, it was also common to wear an old piece of jewellery that had been in the family for years. This piece of jewellery had a special meaning and fitted perfectly with the old English saying "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".
No matter how striking the dress; earrings go with everything. However, it is important to think about the hairstyle you choose. This will prevent your earrings from standing out too much or not at all. Is your dress full of glitter, stones, straps and lace? Then opt for subtle earrings. We also recommend modest earrings for a pulled-up hairdo. Think of a diamond in a nice subtle setting or a small pearl. Are you wearing a dress that is beautiful in its simplicity? Then consider finishing off your outfit with real eye-catchers. Combined with a hairstyle where your hair hangs loose, long earrings also complete your dream outfit.
Are you still in doubt whether to wear a necklace in addition to earrings? In any case, make sure the earrings and necklace match well. In addition, there are some other aspects that are important to keep in mind when choosing a beautiful necklace. Do you have a beautiful strapless wedding dress with a heartshape neckline or a wedding dress with a V-neckline? Then a necklace with a pendant is perfect. It will accentuate your beautiful neckline. If your wedding dress has a straight or round neckline, it is very nice to wear a choker. This necklace sits a little higher around the neck, showing off the tight/round shapes of your wedding dress. For a busy wedding dress, we recommend a subtle chain.
Nor should we forget a bracelet when it comes to bridal jewellery. People often think that a bracelet is too conspicuous, but if you have a beautifully simple dress, you may well shine with a slightly wider, conspicuous bracelet. When picking it out, make sure it doesn't have any sharp edges. This could damage your wedding dress and of course that should not happen.
Wearing a ring alongside the wedding rings... That's a real DON'T! The focus should, of course, be on the gorgeous wedding rings you will slide on each other's fingers.
Wearing jewellery during the wedding is slightly less popular among men. Still, a beautiful watch and a pair of stylish cufflinks can provide the perfect finishing touch. Note, however, that wearing a watch during the wedding is a big DON'T for ladies! To give you a little help, we've listed our favourite jewellery items for you.
This subtle diamond jewellery set will connect the dots. The yellow gold set consists of the Eline ear studs and Eline pendant. The jewellery exudes simplicity and luxury. The Eline ear studs both feature a 0.40 ct diamond. The Eline pendant contains a striking 0.50 ct diamond. With all diamonds, you will receive a GIA certificate. This set is not eye-catching, but will provide a sparkling finishing touch. In addition, the jewellery is perfect to keep wearing after your wedding. The ear studs and pendant match every outfit and are a memento of your beautiful day. You can view the ear studs here and the pendant here.
Still prefer to see some colour in your jewellery? Then our second suggestion is perfect for you. This modern and colourful set consists of the pear-shaped Ginger 1 pendant and Ginger 4 earrings. The entire set is finished in white gold and features a pear-shaped cut aquamarine surrounded by diamonds. The white gold pendant has an aquamarine measuring 7 x 5 mm and 0.11 ct of diamonds. The earrings have a 12 x 8 mm aquamarine surrounded by 0.58 ct of diamonds. The aquamarine is beautiful with a white dress and yet not overpowering because of its light colour. It will subtly complete your outfit. Curious about this beautiful jewellery? Check out the pendant here and the earrings here.
Of course, we cannot forget the groom. For him too, we have the perfect accessories to complete his outfit. One of our favourite men's accessories are the Joris cufflinks. These white gold cufflinks feature a beautiful aquamarine and the edges are finished with a total of 0.66 ct of diamonds.

To conclude, let's come back to the old English saying "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"... The meaning behind this is that when a bride carries something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue with her during the wedding day, it will bring happiness into her married life. This has become an international tradition at many weddings and is still commonly used today. At DiamondsByMe, we can help you incorporate this tradition into your jewellery in a number of ways:-
