Bridesmaids and mothers of the bride are often involved in helping the bride to choose her accessories for the big day but giving enough consideration to their own jewellery is important too. The bride may have specified the colour of your dress, or the dress itself, if you’re her bridesmaid and mothers of the bride tend to take great care when selecting their own outfit. But what jewellery will look best with it? It needs to be special enough for such a momentous day and make just the right kind of statement.
Mother of the Bride
Kiki considers a wedding “the nicest opportunity to treat yourself to a beautiful piece of jewellery. Not only will you look and feel amazing on the day but you will also have something to wear, enjoy and treasure for years to come”. Some lucky daughters may also find such treasures in their own jewellery box one day. “It’s lovely for a mother of the bride to buy earrings for herself. Decades later she can give them to her daughter and remind her that she wore them on her wedding day. It’s very special to pass jewellery down to the next generation.”
Your first port of call should be Kiki’s Special Editions, so named because they are completely unique, and therefore perfect for weddings. These flower-shaped Beryl earrings with Diamonds will catch the light and add warmth to your outfit, while the palest pink Morganite is used for a number of distinctive yet delicate earrings within the Special Editions collection.
Choose a pair of stud earrings or bracelet that make your heart sing to put your own subtle, considered stamp on your wedding day look. You’ll forever have something that reminds you of an incredible day, and a special time in your relationship. Remember Kiki’s golden rule for all wedding jewellery, not just bridal – “you want to be able to enjoy wearing it more than once, not just on the wedding day”.
Lace is a new collection from Kiki McDonough, made exclusively from White or Yellow Gold and Diamonds, with an intricate design inspired by an heirloom brooch. It’s perfectly pretty for weddings, and versatile when it comes to dressing up or down after the big event; this beautifully subtle necklace comes in two variations, while the collection also features three exquisite pairs of earrings.

Being a flower girl is something a little girl remembers for the rest of her life – dressing up, feeling grown-up and being part of something very special. Surprise her with her own Yellow Gold Memories bracelet to wear on the day, whether her favourite animal is currently a pug, panda, penguin or pig. Safe bets are also the teddy bear, duck, bunny and cat, and all the bracelets are slim, delicate and subtle enough to complement her flower girl ensemble beautifully.
Diamonds are not just reserved for brides. Take an extra few minutes to peruse our cufflinks selection; you might be certain everyone will be looking at the bride but you will want to feel your best too. If she’s wearing Yellow Gold jewellery, or Gold is part of the colour scheme, these Diamond halo cufflinks are as smart as they are stylish, and can be worn after the wedding for any number of occasions. If you’re keen to sport a splash of colour, these striking Diamond star cufflinks come in navy, red or pale blue enamel variations.Back to KiKi Stories
