Bridal jewellery is among the most special jewellery in the world. Emerald bridal jewellery takes the title and pushes it that bit further, adding some luscious greens to the bright, white day that make it truly ethereal.
Whether or not you wear a necklace on your wedding day largely depends on the neckline of your wedding dress, as well as other factors like how you style your hair and what other jewellery you want to wear. The beautiful examples we have today explore two sides of the ‘statement necklace’.
On the left, we have the older of the two, an antique Russian pendant featuring emeralds and diamonds. This large piece would be best suited to a wedding dress with a v-neckline or an off-the-shoulder neckline. Avoid high necklines, as the pendant will end up competing too much with the dress.
On the right, a vintage 1940s diamond and emerald necklace sits close to the neck, hitting the sweet spot between choker and collarette. A necklace such as this one would be perfect alongside almost any style of wedding dress. It would shine best with an off-the-shoulder dress or a halter-style dress.
Earrings are a key part of making your wedding look complete. It doesn’t matter if you choose stud earrings or drop earrings, you just need to make sure you feel like an angelic presence, excited to start your life as one half of a whole.
The vintage 1980s emerald and diamond earrings on the left are studs, crafted in the Art Deco style using platinum. If you have an Art Deco streak in your wedding planning, this is the emerald bridal jewellery for you. Suitable for all hairstyles, these are the perfect accent to your wedding outfit.
The right-hand side shows us some quite delicate emerald and diamond drop earrings. The tear-shaped cabochon cut emeralds add a real sophistication to these earrings. They would look stunning with a half-up hairstyle just as well as a bun or French twist. They aren’t statement earrings, and so will complement a necklace in a similar style.
If you’re going to be a bride with a long-sleeved gown, it could be that a bracelet is out of the question. You certainly don’t want the finer details of either the bracelet or your dress getting into a disagreement. If you are in the market for an emerald bracelet, however, stick around.
The contemporary diamond and emerald bangle on the left is a perfect bracelet for a minimalistic wedding aesthetic. Its yellow gold colouring keeps it warm, the ideal addition to an off-white dress like a champagne dress. This bangle could also suit a dress with gold accenting such golden thread work.
On the right, a stunning vintage 1970s emerald and diamond bracelet steals the show. This statement bracelet has a cluster design that makes for exceptional emerald bridal jewellery. It would suit strapless dresses and off-the-shoulder dresses wonderfully, with its grandeur making it perfect for such a momentous occasion.
Beyond what we’ve discussed, there are plentiful other options for emerald bridal jewellery to be a part of your wedding day. Think outside of the box for ways to incorporate jewellery that might be unexpected for your special day.
For example, on the left here we have a pair of vintage emerald cufflinks. Not every bride wants to wear a gown, and there’s a plethora of ladies who’d rather suit up for their special day. Cufflinks are the perfect accessory to make your outfit suitably formal and fun, bringing the celebration to your attire.
The emerald brooch on the right is an antique Art Deco piece. It’s just the right balance between glamorous and understated that makes it the perfect wedding accessory. If you’re looking to add a special touch to your dress, or you want something to add sparkle to your jacket, a brooch is the bridal jewellery for you.
Your wedding is a celebration of the love you share with your significant other. Make it really feel like a celebration with the right accessories. Emerald bridal jewellery can make your special day that bit more special, and it can be a memento of the day whenever you choose to wear it again. What could be better?
