Four Ideas for Wedding Jewelry for 2024
We’d argue that the jewelry you wear to a wedding is just as important as the dress itself. Here, you'll find our expert tips for curating your jewelry look the next time you're invited as a wedding guest.
Dress Your Ears
You might have your eye on some spectacular diamond drops, or shoulder-skimming chandelier earrings, but that’s no reason to neglect the rest of your ear. If you have multiple piercings, Eva Fehren's Ziggy Diamond Hoops provide an upgrade to your usual huggy in a second hole. You can also bring a little contemporary Place Vendôme style to your look, with Repossi’s iconic Serti sur Vide Earcuff, or look beyond the lobe with the Diamond Pave Halo Link Earring by Shay - a refined, emerald-cut diamond, joined to a delicate ear cuff with the brand’s signature pave curb chain in miniature.
Don’t forget your fingers
All eyes will be on your left hand and your new wedding ring, but don’t forget to give the other one a little love, too. Try matching a statement ring with a natural manicure, to keep the focus on the gemstones; Venyx designer Eugenie Niarchos is known for her richly textured shield rings and the deep-sea-inspired White Una Rainbow Fish Ring is cast in white gold studded with moonstones and diamonds, with a pearly spine. Meanwhile, the Diamond Leaf Ring by Anita Ko wraps the finger in a twist of white diamonds in an elegant yet modern expression. If the power pinkie is your thing, upgrade your little finger with Ascher’s Diamond Pave Bubble Ring, whose softly geometric lines and three sides of glittering diamond pave, exude confidence and composure.
Consider a choker
If your gown is high-necked or richly embellished, you’ll want to keep necklaces high up at the throat to accentuate the cut of the dress and elongate your neck. The Diamond Scales Choker by Shay is a magnificent case in point; five rows of round and geometric-cut diamonds in warm rose gold reflect light up to the face and highlight the collar bones, while the Paloma Necklace by Anita Ko pairs icy diamond drops with cool white gold. The diamond stars of the Astraea Diamond Choker by Venyx would work beautifully with an unadorned, simply cut gown.
Remember your wrists
Sometimes a simple tennis bracelet speaks louder than a stack, especially if your gown is long-sleeved. Eva Fehren’s 2mm Line Bracelet traces a line of light at the wrist, while the Two-Tone Blue Sapphire Link Bracelet by Shay creates a bolder feel, with contrasting blue sapphires and white diamonds. For an exquisitely feminine touch, the Sync Bracelet by Fernando Jorge is a delicate piece that features custom links for extra versatility.
Find your focus
A bold necklace creates a focal point on the décolleté, which can highlight the neckline of a low-cut or off-the-shoulder gown. The Thin Zoe Choker by Anita Ko will let you sparkle through the night in a vintage inspired design, while Shay's Pearl and Diamond Split Lariat provides a unique blend of two gemstones that is sure to turn heads. Or, for the ultimate pop of color, Azlee's Rich Emerald Bead Necklace is the perfect choice to go with a minimal dress.
