Diamonds, it has been said, are a girl’s best friend and are a popular choice for both engagement and wedding rings, as their eternal nature makes them a perfect representation of everlasting love. However, coloured gems are also gaining in popularity, inspired perhaps by a certain sapphire ring at the recent Royal Wedding, and each one holds a deeper meaning. Rubies represent divine power, sapphires stand for constancy, amethysts for deep pure love, while Australian opals symbolise love, romance and happiness. Of course, when choosing a diamond or any other gemstone, it is worth consulting a reputable jeweller to ensure you are getting a good quality stone and, if you are looking for something unique, there are several talented Peninsula based jewellers who can work with you to create something magical, or you could also consider an antique gem.
Gifts of cufflinks for the groomsmen and antique pins or hairpieces for your bridesmaids are a thoughtful way to thank them for their participation and remember, wedding jewels are not just for the all-important ring finger – let them sparkle in your hair, at your neck and wrists and enjoy the beauty they add to your ensemble.
Whatever you choose, make it something you are happy with and that it is comfortable to wear – after all, you’ll be wearing your rings for a long time!
