From stylish white gold pieces to colourful statement designs, our collection has everything for you to find the perfect gift for her to start her new chapter. From earrings to complement THE dress to jewellery that'll add oomph to her wedding hair, scroll for your top 5 bridal shower gifts.

1. Bridal shower gifts for the big day

Wedding jewellery is the ultimate gift for a bridal shower – thoughtful, personal and precious, the bride-to-be is bound to love it. If you’re asking yourself ‘what jewellery should a bride wear?’, it’s important to remember that when it comes to wedding jewellery, there are no rights or wrongs – it comes down to personal style.

Here are our tips on how to find the perfect pieces. Firstly, keep the focus on the dress itself. It's the most important part of any bride's look, and her jewellery needs to complement it. Next, whether you choose to keep it simple or statement, make sure that the jewellery is well balanced (especially if you’re mixing your metals). Finally, make sure it’s something that the bride will love and treasure forever – a sentimental stone like her birthstone is always a good idea.

2. Bridal jewellery to compliment the dress

As a bridesmaid or maid of honour, you’ll likely have been at every wedding dress appointment (and the ‘yes to dress moment’ still brings a tear to your eye) so you’ll know exactly which pieces to pick when it comes to the perfect wedding bracelet or pair of wedding earrings for the bride.

Is it a heavily detailed gown, with beading or sequins? We suggest simple styling with an understated piece, like a pair of elegant stud earrings. An elegant satin gown? Go for statement jewellery, like a sapphire necklace, plus it makes the perfect something blue. Need more inspo? We’ve got you covered with our collection of modern bridal jewellery.

If you’re looking for a necklace, always bear the neckline of her dress in mind. For a V, U or plunging neck, go for something longer, like a silver locket or pendant. For a sweetheart neckline or strapless dress, a choker is a great choice or add art deco flair with an on-trend string of pearls. And don't worry if it's a high or embellished neckline, we’ve got lots of statement wedding earrings instead.

A bride’s hands and the wedding ring will likely be a focal point of lots of wedding photos, so a delicate chain for her wrist, such as a diamond or gemstone tennis bracelet will complete her look perfectly.

When picking your perfect gift, think about the style of jewellery she usually wears so she feels comfortable on the day (pro tip: always pick a piece that she’ll want to wear on her big day and every day after).

3. Bridal earrings to compliment the hairdo

Along with the dress, her bridal hair plays an equally important role in her aisle-ready style, so her jewellery will need to complement that too. A pair of sophisticated drop earrings will add style to a polished up-do or ponytail, whilst a fish-tail braid or messy bun can be offset by a pair of hooped earrings for bohemian flair.

If her locks are set to be in tumbling curls or beach waves, some subtle stud earrings or tiny hoops are the perfect accessories. A simpler style is also great with a sparkling hairpiece or headband – this wedding season’s must-have wedding accessory.

4. Meaningful bridal shower gifts

Bridal shower gifts for the bride who has everything? Don’t worry, we’ve got just the thing. Our sapphire jewellery makes for the perfect something blue, or choose a gemstone piece with her or the groom’s birthstone? Why not gift two necklaces with each so she can layer them?

As a gift from bestie to bestie, a tanzanite necklace or a pair of tanzanite earrings bring all the good vibes. Not only does it reflect the union of heart and mind between friends but the stone is said to be calming and carry happy, positive energy - perfect for wedding day nerves.

5. Personal and unique bridal shower gifts

To make our unique bridal shower gifts even more personal, our engraving service means you can get them engraved with their initials or wedding date to make your gift extra special. Whether it's a treat to yourself or a gift for a loved one, so many of our pieces are designed by us to be personalised by you.

And as your bridal bestie, we’re here to make your big day easier. Book a personal appointment to learn more about our services or to view our collection of wedding day jewellery.
