Calling all brides-to-be: if you’re getting married in 2019, you’ve may have already chosen the Dress (up there with future spouse, for many!) Next on the list: finding jewellery that suits you as much as it complements your dream dress. Kiki’s golden rule when it comes to choosing wedding jewellery is to “buy pieces you’d love to wear again. You won’t wear your wedding dress again, but you can wear and enjoy special pieces of jewellery for the rest of your life.”
For those brides that prefer a traditional style, there is nothing that says bridal more than Pearls. Match your earrings to your bouquet with our pointed petal Pearl earrings, or adorn your ears with pretty knot earrings.
When it comes to wedding dress trends, 2019 heralds the return of classic designs and pared-back silhouettes. These styles of dress look exquisite with sophisticated, elegant White Gold and Diamond jewellery, such as these intricate geometric flower studs and striking Diamond Amity knot earrings.
Say It With Diamonds
The new Lace collection by Kiki McDonough combines antique inspiration with contemporary design, which reflects 21st century weddings themselves; many brides now choose to blend traditional elements with more modern touches. The Lace collection features White Gold and Yellow Gold pieces, all teamed with Diamonds – we love this delicate pendant and matching bracelet.
Many brides like to nod to the ‘something old, something new…’ adage and jewellery is the perfect way to do so. “Blue Topaz is lovely if you want ‘something blue’,” advises Kiki. “Keep it pale, light and wearable for the future.” These Forget-Me-Not Blue Topaz stud earrings will add a subtle hint of colour on the big day – and they’ll look just as beautiful on your honeymoon – or you may prefer a touch of Yellow Gold, showcased in this statement Signatures necklace.
Colour Me Happy
Kiki has noticed brides-to-be browsing her jewellery have become bolder, citing the soft baby pink or peachy Morganite as “lovely, more unusual and incredibly pretty”. For a pair that will go with any style dress, these Diamond stud Morganite drop earrings are our pick of the bunch; for those that prefer a more feminine style, try our sweet, heart-shaped earrings.
Alternative Engagement Rings
Kiki has also noticed this adventurous mind-set extending to engagement rings. Use this website’s Drop a Hint function to suggest this beautifully contemporary take on a traditional Marquise-cut ring to your loved one, or perhaps a showstopper like this Green Beryl and Diamond ring.Back to KiKi Stories
