Find the Perfect Wedding Pearls for Your Big Day

Weddings are a marvellous time to celebrate. But they can also be rather hectic. From the catering and entertainment, to last minute touches like make-up and hair, there are a thousand and one things you’ll want to get right.

Jewellery is no exception. On arguably the biggest day of your life, you’ll want the perfect jewellery to equal the occasion. In this respect, there’s no better match than pearls.

In this post, we’ll explore how to choose the perfect pearls for your big day.

Wearing pearls at a wedding

Lustrous pearls are the perfect accompaniment for any Bride as she says ‘I do’. They are guaranteed to accentuate your natural beauty as the eye of the beholder cannot separate the lustre of a pearl from the glow of the wearer’s skin. However, their natural sophistication and elegance also make them the ideal choice for a number of other people at your wedding.

The Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom can pair a beautiful pearl necklace with their show stopping hat or fascinator. Bridesmaids can coordinate with matching pearl jewellery. Pearl jewellery also has a masculine twist - a pair of pearl cufflinks and a tie pin would be perfect for the Father of the Bride, Best Man and Ushers.

As a Bride or Groom, you will want to thank all of those key people that played a special role on your wedding day. What better way to thank them than a bespoke pearl jewellery design that they can wear on the day and then keep for a lifetime?

Choosing the perfect pearls

With an occasion as important as your wedding, you want everything to be perfect, right down to the finest detail. When it comes to pearl jewellery, bespoke jewellery, designed specifically with you in mind, is without a doubt the best way to achieve this perfection.

Whether it’s a stunning pearl necklace or a pair of subtle, refined pearl earrings, you can tailor your choice of pearls and the design to match your individual style, the outfit you wish to wear, and your personal features that your pearls will be forever complementing – eye colours, face shapes and even your personality.

Most bespoke pearl projects start with a consultation where we discuss your requirements and get to know your unique style. Using our comprehensive knowledge of pearl varieties, quality and lustre, our team will perfectly match the pearl shape and tone to your individual style and features.

We draw upon our large inventory of natural and cultured pearls, from Tahitian and South Sea to Akoya and freshwater. You’ll enjoy the unique experience of choosing your specific pearls for your one-off design, which we will couple with some rough sketches of the shape and design so that you can visualise your special look.

At the end of the process, not only will you have the most amazing pearl jewellery for your wedding day – you’ll have a stunning necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings that perfectly complement your natural style. As well as being the ultimate keepsake from your big day, you’ll be able to wear your design again and again as you celebrate anniversaries, landmark birthdays or with a cashmere jumper to achieve everyday elegance.
