We’re officially halfway through 2019, and it’s been a year full of new and exciting wedding jewellery trends. The rise of minimalism in wedding gowns has not gone unnoticed, and jewellers are catering to this shift. From Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen embellished satin and lace dress in 2011 to Meghan Markle’s sleek Givenchy number in 2018, brides are favouring simpler styles.
Take a look at the top 5 emerging wedding jewellery trends of 2019 so far. Discover how to wear and style them in the most effortless and understated way possible.
You’re getting married and you’ve met your perfect match, but this doesn’t mean that your jewellery has to match too. This year’s overwhelming earring trend has been the mismatched style. Stars and moons, naughts and crosses, lock and key… we’ve seen it all. But our focus has shifted from the fun and novelty designs, to something quite refined.
Alison Fern Jewellery has released a stunning and elegant line of mismatched pearl earrings. Subtle and minimal are words synonymous with these beauties. They are great for the bride that wants to retain a sense of individuality and edginess in her style, but still channel a traditional wedding aesthetic.
There is a long tradition behind the popularity of wearing pearls to a wedding. First and foremost, they bring good luck. The Greeks even believed that the pearl gemstone would promote marital harmony. Sounds enticing… am I right?
Pearls will always be a wedding staple, but they did begin to drop in popularity following the number of celebrities that decided to ditch pearls of the past. However, they’ve been making a strong comeback in recent months, especially following Fashion Weeks. What makes their reinvention even better is that they’re no longer solely associated with the classic wedding style. In fact, they cater to a variety of wedding themes including bohemian, vintage, romantic, modern and even rustic.
Moonstones are also on the rise this season, particularly because of their whimsical and iridescent aura. They’re almost other-worldly in their setting, and are not overpowering in their finish. A subtle and elegant sparkle is all you need on your big day. Nothing overpowering, nothing too extra… just be authentically you.
Do you know the meaning of a moonstone? It’s an energising gem that is both nourishing and sensual. It’s not only healing, but it is immensely powerful. It has an impactful presence, it can change the tides and inject motion into your life. Your wedding day is an important day of change. You’ll be riding an emotional wave. So why not take along a calming piece of jewellery to remind you of the peacefulness of your love?
