Every bride dreams of looking resplendent on her wedding day, and the perfect bridal jewellery can make that dream a reality. Whether you’re contemplating modern Si Dian Jin (四点金) sets that’ll still be wearable after the wedding or looking for a statement diamond necklace to compliment the dress of your dreams, choosing your bridal jewellery can feel like what’ll make or break your wedding day.
In other words, it’s not just about adding sparkle to your wedding outfit – it’s about striking a balance between honouring your heritage, expressing your personal style, and celebrating the love and commitment you’re about to embrace.
At Love & Co., we understand the importance of selecting the right bridal jewellery and are here to guide you through this momentous occasion. Our 3 expert styling tips will help you choose the perfect bridal jewellery for your special day so you can walk down the aisle feeling like you’re on top of the world.
Tip #1: Dress First, Jewellery Second.
Before selecting your bridal jewellery, you should have your wedding outfits in hand or at least have a clear idea of what they’ll look like. For brides who’ll go through multiple outfit changes throughout various wedding ceremonies, this might seem daunting due to the different necklines, textures, and styles you’ll be juggling. After all, there are many different necklines for the beautiful outfits that you will be wearing such as the white western gown, a Chinese kua, Malay-Muslim baju kurung or Indian traditional sarees/lehenga.
If your outfit is strapless or has a deeper-cut neckline, then a statement necklace like the LVC 9IN Wildflower 999 Gold Necklace will pair perfectly and capture everyone’s attention. For high-neck gowns and other tops with embellishments near the neckline, a simple chain or curved necklace akin to the LVC 9IN Curved 999 Gold Necklace might be enough to accentuate the existing designs. Alternatively, pair either option with elegant stud earrings like the LVC 9IN Allure Heart 999 Gold Earrings or vibrant bracelets and bangles to direct visual interest to the rest of your outfit as well.
Tip #2: Blend Traditional Expectations with a Modern Twist.
Traditional wedding jewellery sets in Singapore can be quite heavy on gold, creating a heavy, ornate look that some brides may feel clashes with their own personal style. However, it may not be so easy to just tone it down as there are lots of cultural expectations to consider, too!
One way to strike a balancing act is to explore modern takes on traditional heirlooms. Love & Co.’s LVC 9IN 999 Pure Gold Collection is one such collection that reimagines the traditional Si Dian Jin (四点金）set with contemporary designs that can still be easily styled after the wedding.
Pieces like the LVC 9IN Kailey 999 Gold Drop Earrings, LVC 9IN Kailey 999 Gold Bracelet, and LVC 9IN Drop Circlet 999 Gold Necklace are from 5G 999 gold for enhanced durability at the highest 99.99% purity, allowing you to seamlessly transition from bridal jewellery to everyday accessories in your post-marriage life.
Tip #3: Opt for Complementary Metal Colours to your Dress.
To achieve a cohesive look, try to match the metal colour of your wedding jewellery in relation to your dress. White gold or platinum complements cooler tones, while yellow or rose gold can enhance warmer-toned gowns and apparel.
If you’re contemplating wearing a traditionally yellow gold Si Dian Jin (四点金) set but worrying about whether it’ll clash with your outfit, why not opt for the alternative of Si Dian Zuan (四点金) instead? Diamond-studded pieces like the LVC Eterno Celestia Diamond Necklace, LVC Eterno Classic Curved Diamond Necklace, LVC Eterno Celestia Diamond Hoop Earrings, and LVC Eterno Diamond Bangle achieve the same symbolic meaning behind the individual jewellery pieces but in a more contemporary, silver-tinted cooler tone for greater flexibility.
Love & Co.’s wide array of white gold earrings and jewellery can even be combined across collections, such as pairing the dainty LVC Charmes X Diamond Hoop Earrings and LVC Charmes Cupid Diamond Bracelet with the LVC Destiny Infinity Diamond Bracelet or LVC Destiny Infinity Diamond Necklace; the latter two bearing infinity symbol motifs as a tribute to you and your partner’s eternal love.
