Necklaces and rings ‘top bridal favourites’
Dubai, July 14, 2009
Wedding jewellery styles presented on runways this year indicate that necklaces and rings lead the way as bridal favourites, said a top official of the World Gold Council (WGC), a commercially-driven marketing organisation.
“A wedding represents the most auspicious time in a woman’s life, heralding a lifetime of joy and togetherness,” said Anan Fakhreddin, WGC’s managing director, Middle East and Turkey.
“Its warm, golden glow and timeless immutable qualities perfectly epitomises everything a wedding stands for, such as abiding commitment and lasting love. Most bridal gold jewellery pieces such as pendant chains and rings especially are meant be worn over a lifetime and are often passed down to future generations.”
Particularly favoured this season are chandelier earrings designed to drop almost to shoulder-length, while elaborate studs are equally stunning and eye catching, said Fakhreddin. He recommended trying on different styles to see what looks best with your bridal outfit’s neckline and the hairstyle you are planning to wear.
In a bridal jewellery set, neck adornments take centre stage. Highly decorative pieces, necklace styles can range from elegant and classic pieces that are simple yet intricate to more lavish, multi-layer ones.
Top of the list are chokers, followed by multi-layered necklaces with Indian brides particularly favouring the latter.
Next in line this season come bold bangles and cuff bracelets in dramatic styles. Particularly favoured are nature-inspired vintage style designs which add a romantic touch to a bridal ensemble.
Endowed with a filigree-like beauty which is highly feminine and charming, one other option to wear them is to stack several such slender pieces together.
However, if you are still undecided about the right gold jewellery designs, you might consider having your wedding jewellery custom-made, added Fakhreddin.
In fact several brides allow their latent design abilities to unfurl by getting their designs crafted in the universal metal of choice, gold. – TradeArabia News Service
