How to Choose Your Wedding Jewelry

November 6, 2023 | riley

Your wedding is a momentous occasion–one that demands the perfect accessories to complement the beauty and significance of the day. We know there’s a lot involved in wedding planning, including picking out the right jewelry. From the engagement and wedding rings to the smaller details like wedding day jewelry and thoughtful anniversary gifts, each piece captures the essence of your love story. That’s why we’re breaking down how to choose your wedding jewelry while giving you some of our favorite pieces from Charles & Colvard.

Understanding Personal Style and Preferences

Before diving into the details of specific pieces, it’s important to understand your personal style and preferences. Think about your everyday choices. Are you typically attracted to classic, modern, or bohemian looks? Envision how you want to showcase your personality through your jewelry on the big day. And most importantly, remember that this jewelry is going to become sentimental. Although you can always upgrade your engagement ring or wedding band down the line, these are pieces you may want to pass down to generations. They’re also going to be photographed often. Make sure they feel true to you.

How to Choose Your Wedding Jewelry

Engagement Rings

An engagement ring symbolizes the promise of love and commitment. When choosing an engagement ring, consider the four Cs–cut, color, clarity, and carat–as well as the diamond shapes and cut styles to ensure you select a timeless piece that resonates with you. If you’re looking to save a little money, consider opting for a moissanite stone or another gemstone, which offer just as much beauty for a fraction of the cost.

Wedding Bands

Wedding bands serve as a tangible representation of your vows. When selecting wedding bands, consider intricate engravings, unique finishes, or matching designs to complement your engagement ring. Remember, you will be wearing them together, so you want them to create a unified look when stacked. Enhancers and stacks can help achieve this look if necessary.

Wedding Day Jewelry

Wedding jewelry–including necklaces, earrings, and bracelets–is the final touch to complete and elevate your wedding attire. To create a cohesive look, coordinate the style and metal of your wedding jewelry with your engagement ring and wedding bands. If you don’t mind mixing things up, there’s nothing wrong with mixing metals or gemstones! Lastly, opt for delicate pieces that accentuate your gown without overpowering it.

Anniversary Gifts

Celebrate milestones with thoughtful anniversary gifts that capture the love that you share throughout the years. If you want to make it super sentimental, consider custom-designed jewelry that incorporates meaningful symbols or significant dates, such as a pendant with your wedding date engraved or a ring adorned with birthstones representing each family member.
