Wedding jewels are a wonderful way to add glitter to your bridal ensemble. Our pick of dazzlers includes both glamorous costume jewellery and gorgeous heirloom pieces to wear on your wedding day and keep forever
Wedding jewels can be as subtle or as statement as you please, and our selection of finery ranges from classic pearls and gold to glitzy crystals and colourful gemstones.
While there are some pieces that you will love wearing on your wedding day, and then cherish forever, it’s also worth considering gorgeous faux pieces – especially if you want to party long into the night without worrying about losing a fortune or are planning a destination wedding where jewellery needs to be secured in a safe. Either way, our pick of wedding finery from some of London’s finest will finish off your outfit in style.
