Essential Jewellery for Weddings

jewellery for weddings

When you’re planning a wedding, you’ve already got a lot on your mind. There’s so much to organise, and usually so little time. That’s why you need to take advantage of a few shortcuts wherever possible. One of those shortcuts is to see one professional for your jewellery for weddings.

Catanach’s is happy to help with all your jewellery needs, from the all-important wedding rings to beautiful designer bracelets. It’s important that all of your wedding jewellery ties in together. Particularly, it needs to match the rest of your outfit. That’s where a professional custom jeweller comes in.

Here are some of the essential items you should have for your wedding day.

Wedding rings

Needless to say, the big-ticket item is the wedding ring! You’ll need one each, and you can choose to have them match or not. It can be difficult to find the right ones because often a man wants a different type of ring than a woman does. Working with a custom jeweller gives you a chance to get matching rings without making them identical.

For example, if the bride-to-be wants a diamond wedding ring but the groom is looking for something more understated, an expert can do that. You’ll be able to stick with the same design themes while having two totally unique rings.


Your choice of necklace depends a lot on the type of dress you’re wearing. The simple way to look at it is if your wedding dress is low-cut or strapless, you can wear almost any type of necklace, particularly longer ones. However, if you have more coverage around the neck and shoulders, a shorter necklace is preferred.

In terms of material, silver is the most popular for wedding jewellery, in no small part because it looks great with white dresses.


While not necessarily essential, bracelets are extremely popular. When planning jewellery for weddings, look for sleek, slim bracelets. You don’t want anything to draw attention away from your wedding ring. But a subtle bracelet adds to your overall look. You can even wear small charms on the bracelet to memorialise relatives who have passed and can’t be there. Again, silver is your best choice, and don’t go too overboard with the design.
