A new year is a time to shake things up, start something fresh. And as new beginnings go, getting married is a pretty magical one, full of romance, promise, and a life shared with the one you love. The proposal’s happened, you have your eye on an outfit, and the venue is being discussed. The next thing on the list has to be jewellery. Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a treasure trove of ancestral jewels to choose from, which means having the wonderful pleasure of getting to select your wedding day parure yourself. With the help of Goldsmiths, of course.

Pearls are always a good place to start. This gemstone has been associated with marriage since the Ancient Greeks and Romans when they were worn as a symbol of purity and brought with them the promise of a long and happy marriage. Pearls have since garnered a reputation for primness, which seems strange when you consider how sensuously luminous they are. Steering clear of the twinset associations is Goldsmith’s single-line necklace and bracelet. Both have a gorgeous, minimalist 18-ct gold hoop-and-bar clasp, which brings a Scandi chicness to these lustrous gems. These are the ultimate “buy for the big day, wear forever” duo. If pure pearls are more your style, then there is also the option of a simple, elegant strand – a truly timeless piece that will no doubt be a future heirloom.

While diamonds have previously had the engagement market cornered, modern brides are turning to this gemstone to brighten up the big day as well. Tennis bracelets are a perennial favourite and this 18ct white gold Linear bracelet is a contemporary take on the classic. Rather than a uniform line of stones, the designers at Goldsmiths have spliced the lines of smaller diamonds with larger ones, either solo or as a trio transforming the traditional tennis style into something altogether more decadent. This beautiful arrangement of precious stones has also been translated into a necklace and drop pendant, which means that whatever the neckline on your chosen outfit, there is a Linea design that will fit it to perfection. There is also a pair of sophisticated Linea drop earrings that are wonderfully kinetic and designed to dance when you do.

Another diamond duo option is the 9ct white gold Smile necklace, which pairs beautifully with our 9ct white gold petal stud earrings. If you’re the type of person who likes jewellery that makes a statement but doesn’t weigh you down, then these dainty diamond designs will be your friend. And if you prefer a dash of colour to your gold you won’t be able to resist this precious-stone set style of classic hoop. The diamonds are graduated in size and surrounded by rich 18ct yellow gold. Wear once and you’ll never want to take them off.

Everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect; and while you can’t control everything, you can be assured that, when it comes to jewellery for that special day and beyond, Goldsmiths will be there to ensure you and your jewels look absolutely flawless.
