A winter wedding can be a magical occasion, but to make the day as perfect as possible, it's always a good idea to accessorise your dress with a beautiful piece of antique jewellery. Here is our hand-picked selection of jewellery for winter brides:
If you are familiar with antique jewellery, you will be aware of the dazzling variety of styles available, including rare and unique pieces. However, many buyers are not confident that they could spot a fake among this array of designs. Even worse, fakers can be clever. You may come across old stones fitted into newer fixings and vice versa, but and it's misleading to sell such items as 'antique'. So, what should you look for if you think a piece might be fake?
The musical icons of the early twentieth century radiated glamour and class. Known as much for their style as their talents, these stars captured the imaginations of newly liberated women across Europe and the United States. In doing so, these icons transformed the music halls and jazz clubs of the big cities into hotbeds of fashion. While the flapper dresses and elaborate hair embellishments regularly fall in and out of style, the statement necklaces, eye-grabbing bracelets, and fabulous earrings remain timeless emblems of a more decadent age.
The wedding season is now in full swing. Obviously, the venue, the dresses, the cake, and the wedding reception are front and centre when organising the big day. However, it can be the small finishing touches that can really make the occasion perfect.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. It’s a well-worn phrase for a reason – diamonds have the perfect amount of sparkle and are imbued with historical significance. Besides, they look great on your hand and go with everything. At certain points throughout history, only a diamond would do when it came to a proposal, and an engagement ring should cost three times a monthly salary.
For anyone who loves the timeless beauty of elegant vintage jewellery, one of the best sources of inspiration has to be the stunning pieces used on the silver screen. Movie makers pay attention to every detail in order to weave their magic and transport us to different times and places, which means we all get a wonderful window into a different world. Glorious items of jewellery are not just vital to making the movie costumes authentic, but can even play a role in the drama itself.
