Bridal jewellery inspiration

Bridal jewellery inspiration

You've said 'Yes', the dress is picked out and the date set. Tick, tick, tick. However, brides often stumble when it comes to picking out their bridal jewellery for the big day. It can feel a bit overwhelming with a lot of factors to consider - the veil, dress neckline, hair do, colour scheme... here are our top tips to finding your perfect wedding jewellery.

While 'bridal jewellery' is traditionally classic and minimal, anything goes. Our first and top tip is to choose something that is 'you' rather than because it fits your theme. Also pick something that you will love and wear again.

It's often useful to have any earrings chosen before you meet with your hairdresser so you can see how they look with your final 'do.

Whatever your style, make sure there is a common theme between all your wedding jewellery so it looks considered - be it gemstone colour, metal or design.

Be guided by your dress - if you have elaborate beading or detailing on your dress, perhaps consider paring back your jewellery - or if your dress is a classic silhouette, a statement earring could look stunning.

You don't need it all! A veil, tiara, earrings, bracelet, necklace - that's without the dress and flowers! Pick one or two pieces that you love.
Here are our top picks for every bridal style...

These gorgeous rose gold, geometric earrings and necklace set from London based contemporary jewellery brand, Osylia, will flatter any skin tone and twinkle beautifully come dusk.
Ellie Air's delicate pieces are perfect for adding understated elegance to your bridal outfit, or even those of the bridesmaids! These Star Sleeper earrings beautifully combine rose gold and grey diamonds.
If you'd like to keep your neckline minimal, why not go for the Russian Bangle, a contemporary, romantic take on the Russian Wedding Ring combining three fine bangles of 9ct yellow gold, rose gold and sterling silver which are twisted together into a bracelet.
Amarilo's demi fine jewellery is perfect for classic elegance - the irridescent opal mini hoops would be perfect for a feminine, delicate shimmer of colour.


For boho brides, the 'Lovers' earrings from Milk Tooth would be beautiful with loose beach waves.
If you have a brief, budget or design in mind, drop us an email at hello@collectiveboutique.co.uk and we'd love to help you find something special from one of our designers!

Summer jewellery inspiration

Summer jewellery inspiration

Just like fashion, jewellery has its seasons. From the sparkly statement necklaces and chandelier earrings of Christmas to the gorgeous, beaded friendship bracelets and stackable bangles of summer.

Whilst we love the heirloom, demi-fine jewellery that we wear all-year long - having a 'jewellery wardrobe' that you can dip in and out of to embellish an outfit is just the magic of jewellery that we love - here are three looks we love.

A long-chain pendant necklace is a great summer option for over floaty kaftans and tanned skin. We love this mixed metal bar design from ethical jewellery brand, Kimsu.

Sidai Tanzania beaded jewellery

We have just recieved a new drop of our perennial summer bestsellers from Sidai (above). Sidai Designs is a non-profit organisation, located in Arusha, Tanzania. The centre supports Maasai women by working with them to produce beautiful beaded jewellery based on traditional techniques and modern aesthetics. Choose from fine, beaded hoop and drop earrings - or delicate, stackable friendship bracelets with leather and metallic detailing.
