Getting married and need some help finding the perfect bridal jewellery? Here are five things to keep in mind while you shop — including the strange reason some people say you should never wear pearls on your wedding day.

Go for something timeless
Marriage is (hopefully) eternal, but trends come and go. Bridal styles tend to reflect the fashions of the era, as these wedding dresses from across the decades go to show! From the voluminous sleeves of the 1980s to the strapless dresses of today, bridal styles are constantly changing, and trends in jewellery are no exception.

When it comes to choosing your jewellery for the day, why not choose pieces that will look great with other outfits! If you go for versatile jewellery items, they can add glamour to an everyday look too, helping you make the most of your jewellery wedding budget. Wearing the jewellery again and again will also act as a reminder of your special day.

The Multi Stone Collection is guaranteed to make a statement with its sparkling nature and high impact design, and with price points ranging from £400 to £4,000 it’s suitable for a variety of budgets.
