Jewelry has always been a language of love in the world of Van Cleef & Arpels. In fact, the story of the house has started with the love that brought Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef together and made the Maison part of the greatest stories. Finding inspiration in the latter, Van Cleef & Arpels has now an exceptional range of creations that bring poetry – which has always been a skill that the house masters so well – together with high-jewelry, savoir-faire and excellent precious stones.
To make your bridal experience even better, let us share with every future bride some tips that guide her way to choosing the perfect Van Cleef & Arpels jewel for her big day.
1 – To choose the right jewelry, you must first pick a theme for your wedding and create a mood board that helps you determine your style and pick your dress, then start using accessories to complete your look.
2 – The color of your dress is very important to help you choose the right jewelry. While platinum best suits a white dress, ivory looks gorgeous with yellow or rose gold jewels. However, your skin tone can be more reliable, so don’t hesitate to match your jewelry with it and the style of the pieces with your gown. And if you’ve got a warm skin, Van Cleef & Arpels has the right yellow-gold high jewelry for you!
3 – After choosing your dress and your hairstyle, jewelry comes next to put the cherry on the top of the cake.
With strapless or sweetheart dresses, highlight your collarbones and the length of your shoulders with short necklaces or statement chandelier earrings.
A wedding dress with an ornate neckline already compliment the upper part of your body. Therefore, chandelier earrings are once again a great choice, along with classic bracelets and rings.
When it comes to dresses with V necklines, their low cut deserve to be highlighted with a classic choker, long earrings or small studs.
High-neck dresses have been all the rage lately and if this is the case of your wedding dress, focus on your earrings and maybe compliment your look with a brooch.
4 – Dare and don’t hesitate to go all out. After all, it’s your big day and being creative is your way to stand out on this very special occasion. With this in mind, why not adorn your hair with a brooch?
5 – No matter what, stay true to your style. Be yourself every step of the way, even if it was your wedding day.
Last but not least, diamond jewelry remains the Maison’s specialty. Somehow, white diamonds reveal their full brilliance when set against white gold or platinum. However, with variety in mind, every bride will certainly find her joy and jewels with Van Cleef & Arpels.
