Wedding jewellery that won't outshine the couple

Posted on: 26/04/2021

We all look forward to the wedding season for several reasons. Not only do we get to celebrate the love of our nearest and dearest, but we also get to dress up in our best attire.

As well as turning up in a white dress, there are a few things to steer clear of so that you don’t accidentally steal the limelight from the happy couple. This includes overly gaudy accessories.

With this in mind, we’ve created a guide on the most simple and understated items of jewellery. These won’t outshine the bride(s) or groom(s), making sure that the focus is solely on them for their big day.

Watches and Cufflinks

To find a suitable watch for this occasion, use filters to narrow down your choices. Then, you’ll be left with a selection of classic watches that look stylish and smart without being too flashy. 

Perhaps choose an analogue face with a leather strap, like this Rotary Stainless Steel Automatic Watch. After all, leather (especially in darker tones) won’t stand out like silver and gold metals do. 

Although novelty cufflinks can be charming and charismatic, they may draw too much attention. Ask the groom(s) what they are planning to wear so that you can decide accordingly. To be on the safe side, invest in a pair with a sophisticated yet minimalist design, such as these Sterling Silver Square Cufflinks.

Earrings and Necklaces

We recommend picking out some small and dainty earrings. Studs are a great option to consider, and there is a wealth of styles that you can coordinate with your outfit. Take these 9ct Gold Freshwater Cultured Pearl Earrings, for example, which simply exude elegance.

It’s always a wise idea to match your earrings and necklace; this creates a well-put-together yet effortless look. You needn’t stay away from stones, either, which can appear unostentatious in the correct style. 

Try the Silver Blue Topaz and Diamond Earrings and Necklace Set from our My Diamonds collection. If you would prefer a gold chain, there’s still plenty of options on offer.

Rings and Bracelets

While diamonds are one of the most glamorous precious stones, it might be best to leave yours at home, unless they feature on your engagement or wedding ring. Instead, select something simpler, or maybe do without for the day. This means that the newlywed’s wedding bands can truly shine through.

If you’re interested in wearing a bracelet, remember that less is more. Try to avoid anything too chunky or brightly coloured, and veer away from stacking bracelets. Opt for a fine chain or thin bangle with one extra element, much like this 9ct White Gold Heart Charm Bracelet.
