Getting married is one the most important days of any bride’s life. Everything has to be perfect down the very last detail. The one thing that any bride will want to get right is her dress for the big day. It’s not only the dress but the accessories that complete the whole look of her wedding day. When it comes to choosing jewellery, pearls are the most popular choice today. In fact, pearl jewellery has been a popular choice for bridal jewellery for many thousands of years.
The lustre that pearls offer has been admired all over the world in many different cultures and is considered to be a symbol of ever lasting love. In ancient times in Greece, pearls where revered as a jewel that was sacred and the Greeks regarded them as a symbol of love; every single guest at a wedding in Greece would wear pearl jewellery and they were often given as gifts to the bride.
Pearls do come in many different colours but the most popular choice for brides is white; the reason for this is obvious, they are going down the aisle dressed in white. When choosing the right pearl jewellery to go with a wedding dress, you will need to take into account the style of your dress. For example, you may have a plunging neck line, in which case a delicate strand of pearls lightly adorning your neck will look beautiful and will finish off the overall look of the wedding dress.
Many brides will have pearls sewn into their veils to add a touch of class or select a pair of earrings and a bracelet to match the necklace. Pearls do not have to be limited to the bride, you can have your bridesmaids where matching earrings and necklaces to go with their dresses and you can even purchase pearl cufflinks for the groom.
As said, pearl jewellery has been the favoured jewel of choice for brides around the world for many centuries and is not set to go out of fashion anytime soon.
