FOR THE BRIDE THAT’S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING A little BIT DIFFERENT FOR HER WEDDING day JEWELS, LOULERIE’S LOUISE STOKES SHARES her favourite PIECES FOR 2020 …
White feather Haley earrings, Mignonne Gavigan, €219, at Loulerie
This is a gorgeous style by New York-based designer Mignonne Gavigan who creates the most beautiful statement bridal jewellery. The feather detail adds drama to the bridal look and is perfect worn with hair up. This earring would be a great way to elevate a bridal look if the dress is quite simple. The flower detail at the top of the earring sits on the ear like a stud and is a wonderful detail for close up shots on the day. One of the most special moments on the day is when the bride is first seen on the aisle and this earring has the most gorgeous soft movement with the feathers, guaranteeing that wow moment on arrival.
Pearl threader earrings, Perle De Lune, €289, at Loulerie
This is a really pretty earring by Paris born and London-based designer Sandrine of Perle de Lune. The fine chain threader is very elegant with a simple pearl at the end which is a classic bridal style but in a more modern and updated design. For me the movement of an earring is really important and this fine chain will lightly hang around the bride’s face. It would be perfect for a bride who has a very detailed dress, perhaps lace or beading and just needs something subtle for jewellery. It’s important the jewellery complements and never overwhelms the dress.
Classic tear drop earrings, Oscar de la Renta, €379, at Loulerie
Oscar de La Renta needs little introduction having dressed some of the most famous women in history; he was one of Jackie Kennedy’s favourite designers. Accessories and jewellery have always been an important part of the brand’s runway shows, creating some really breathtaking looks. This earring is from their classic collection and is really all you could want from a statement earring. It will elevate any bridal look for maximum glamour. The shape is very elegant I love tear drops for a statement earring as they are more elegant next to the face, and the sparkle from these hand cut crystals is stunning. They would also be a great style to have in your collection as they can be worn with pretty much any evening look or even a simple black dress.
Gold diamond huggies, Chamapagne, €1199, at Loulerie
These champagne diamond tear drop huggie earrings are perfect for a bride who wants a more subtle look to complement her dress. The huggie and tiny hoop earring is really having a moment in fashion right now, many brides may have multiple piercings and prefer a more minimal jewellery look combining a few small gold studs or hoops. This style is perfect as the champagne diamond colour is really gorgeous and looks amazing styled with white diamond studs or tiny gold piercings, the perfect choice for a minimalist, fashion-forward bride.
Gold crystal framed earrings, Alexis Bittar, €210, at Loulerie
Alexis Bittar is a firm favourite around the world (and in Loulerie) for amazing earrings and jewellery with a bit of an edge. This emerald cut crystal is quite classic in its cut but there are tiny spike details around the setting – a signature of Alexis Bittar and a nice injection of edge in a classic style. I love the shape and size, this earring is perfect for a petite bride or someone who doesn’t like big earrings. The crystal detailing goes all the way up the earring so the piece on the lobe and drop have gorgeous crystal detailing. It’s a great style to wear on honeymoon and to style over and over again.
