Here’s another guest blog post from Diamond Manufacturers on how to choose your style of wedding jewellery.
Picking the perfect pieces to complement your wedding day look is never an easy task. Do you go for statement style and wear pieces that will stand out or opt for classic, understated sophistication with minimal jewellery pieces?
Vashi Dominguez, Diamond Expert and Founder of Diamond Manufacturers (www.diamondmanufacturers.co.uk) offers his top tips on how to ensure that you dazzle on your big day.
If you are looking for something understated and classic for your big day, opt for a solitaire diamond pendant (http://www.diamondmanufacturers.co.uk/solitaire-pendants) and diamond stud earrings (http://www.diamondmanufacturers.co.uk/earrings/preset/) to complete your bridal look. These pieces will sparkle and stun without drawing attention away from your dress.
However, if you are looking for something a bit different you could choose a piece from Diamond Manufacturers’ new jewellery collection (http://www.diamondmanufacturers.co.uk/new-arrivals/). Delicate vintage style pieces such as the Flower Stud Earrings or Spiral Diamond Necklace can add a touch of glamour to your day and are great additions to any jewellery box.
Choosing jewellery that you can wear long after your wedding day is a sure investment. Not only will your pieces then hold sentimental value but can also be mixed and matched with other pieces in your jewellery collection too.
When choosing jewellery for your big day make sure that it complements your look and style and with any diamond pieces make sure that you are getting the best diamond for your money. Do your research on the 4 C’s (Carat, Clarity, Cut and colour) and shop around.
The cut is the most important factor when determining value of the diamond. A good cut lets a diamond handle light well and emit sparkle. Grades of cut range from ‘Super Ideal’ to ‘Good’, ‘Super Ideal’ being the highest cut grade.
The Carat is the weight of the diamond. The higher the carat the bigger the size.
The colour of a diamond is graded by how ‘white’ the stone is. Grade D is colourless and Z has a yellow tint. The whiter the diamond the greater it’s value.
Clarity is affected by flaws known as ‘inclusions’ on or in the stone. Grades of clarity range from FL (flawless) to i3 (visible inclusions).
If you place an order with Diamond Manufacturers (www.diamondmanufacturers.co.uk) before 3pm you can have your items with you the following day, perfect for trying on your complete look before the wedding. And for whatever reason you feel that the pieces you have chosen are not quite right, Diamond Manufacturers offer a 90 days returns policy.
