Wedding jewelry styling tips

1) Embrace the sparkle with diamonds

As the Winter Solstice approaches, we all love to brighten up the dark with light. The warm glow of candles, firelight and holiday lights bring a sparkle to wintry events that you can echo in your jewelry to embrace this festive time of year. Diamonds are a classic choice for wedding jewelry for just this reason - they add a shimmer of light that catches the eye. The enduring nature of diamonds has also made them a universal symbol for a strong and lasting relationship. A diamond circle necklace is a meaningful symbol of unity. Echoing the shape of the wedding band, this lovely necklace is captivating when paired with a set of diamond hoops creating an elegant, unified look.

2) Pair Diamonds with Gemstones

The bright reflective light of diamonds brings out the best in colored gemstones. An Amethyst and Diamond wedding ring pairs the soft violet of the amethyst with shimmering diamonds, two gemstones which have traditional ties to enduring love and matrimonial devotion, adding a meaningful touch. You might choose a gemstone for its symbolic meaning or because it is connected to a significant month, like the month you met or became engaged.  Pairing diamonds with rich toned gemstones like sapphires, rubies, and emeralds is especially striking since the contrast of dark and light makes the color pop.

3) Echo Nature’s seasonal palette

The holidays offer an abundance of natural colors, from verdant green foliage and evergreens, to red winterberries, to glacial blue sky and white fluffy snow. Embrace this color palette by bringing gemstone colors into your holiday wedding styling. For Thanksgiving weddings, November’s golden birthstone, Citrine, brings a subtle warmth, especially when set in yellow gold, and the deep red of Garnet, with its brown undertones, is a rich color choice for late fall weddings.

4) Lean into the romance

The romantic red gemstones symbolize love and passion and tie with the red and green of Christmas. Rubies, garnets, pink tourmaline and pink opal all have traditional connections to romantic love offering a wide range of warm tones from the soft pastel of pink opals to the deep red of a garnet. Pair any of these red hued gemstones with both of your initials as a reminder that love is at the heart of this celebration.

Reflect the winter sky

Want to step away from the red and green of Christmas, but still maintain a wintry feel? The cool tones of a winter sky are reflected in December’s birthstone, Nantucket Blue Topaz, making it a meaningful choice for December weddings. Pair with White Topaz or diamonds to emphasize the cool tones and icy sparkle.
