I’m getting super excited about the Jubilee celebrations and whilst diamonds are definitely the chosen jewel for Her Royal Highness, I’ve picked a few sparkly pieces of vintage inspired jewellery to inspire you that will not break the bank but will have you looking every bit a Queen on your wedding day.
I’m so besotted by the new products we have in the boutique and wanted to share a couple of my favourites which I think are going to be a hot look this season.
The Contessa Band by Stephanie Browne is a timeless, vintage bridal hair piece inspired by Edwardian elegance. Featuring twin pave style Swarovski crystals encrusted flowers complete with brilliant cut crystals at their centre, this beautiful wedding band is designed to sit against slightly raised ‘up-do’ hairstyles – though it works brilliantly as a dramatic headpiece for shorter hair, especially crops.
Choosing bridal jewellery always starts with the rings (obviously) but where do earrings come in your list of priorities?
Once you’ve decided on how you want your hair and whether to have a veil, a headpiece, flowers or a more traditional tiara, then you can pay more close attention to your ears.
Drop earrings are a stunningly simple yet very effective way of adding a bit of glitz and sparkle to your ensemble, especially if you choose to wear your hair up.
Here’s just some of my favourites from the new collections, I’d love to know which are yours and whether you would choose drops or something smaller…
For brides-to-be looking for a vintage inspired wedding, the era most favoured this season is the 1920′s.
It was the birth of Hollywood, the rise of the glamorous movie starlets and the beginning of an incredibly influential fashion generation.
I love the 20′s for its pearls, ostrich feathers and t-bar shoes and you love it too. Your favourite piece by far has to be the St Tropez headpiece by Stephanie Browne and I don’t blame you.
