EXQUISITE DIAMOND EARRINGS TO PERFECT YOUR BRIDAL LOOK
Earrings form an essential part of a bride’s look; they accentuate the facial features and draw attention to the bride’s natural beauty. When it comes to selecting diamond earrings for your wedding day, there are a myriad of choices. Whether you are looking for dramatic diamond drop earrings or delicate diamond stud earrings, Shimansky has a pair to complement any style and personality. Here are our favourite picks.
HOW TO CHOOSE BRIDAL EARRINGS
Selecting diamond earrings for the wedding day is an exciting event on the bride’s to-do list. Earrings can play a starring role in perfecting the bridal look on this all-important day, framing the face, while adding glamour and style. The choice of wedding earrings is largely influenced by the bride’s personal taste and style. However, there are a few other aspects to consider when selecting wedding jewellery. The bridal look is built around the style of the wedding gown – whether it is timeless and classic, bohemian, or modern and clean. The bridal earrings should therefore be chosen with the dress in mind. Start by considering your gown’s standout features such as the neckline. An ornate gown with a higher neckline will be best matched with smaller, understated stud earrings, for example, while a pair of dazzling drop earrings will complement a plain, off-the-shoulder dress beautifully.
It is also important to consider the colour tones of the dress and match the metal of the jewellery accordingly. White metals like white gold and platinum look best with white wedding dresses, while metals with warmer tones, like yellow gold and rose gold, complement ivory, blush and champagne gowns beautifully.
The bride’s hairdo is another important style-guiding aspect. An intricate hair design and striking hair accessories create a focal point and may therefore match better with understated earrings. The challenge is not to over-accessorise and to choose key pieces that will anchor your look. Statement earrings can add extra allure to a classic up braid, for example, while simple earrings can accentuate an intricate hair design and glamorous drop earrings with micro set diamonds can work perfectly with a slightly undone hairstyle.
DIAMOND STUD EARRINGS
Diamond studs, like the Forever Classic Four-claw My Girl Diamond Stud Earrings, are at the top of our list of wedding jewellery favourites. Exuding elegance and sophistication, these minimalist designs are timeless and can be worn to every upcoming occasion, making them a great reminder of your big day and a worthy investment.
Diamond stud earrings are among the most versatile of all earring designs, complementing most wedding dress necklines and styles. Whether paired with a sweetheart, bateau, Queen Anne or high neckline, these classic designs add just enough sparkle to gently bring focus to the face. Stud earrings match particularly well where focus is placed on the hair. A bohemian flower crown, for example, is rounded off perfectly with diamond studs as they add sparkle to this delicate ethereal look without detracting attention from the floral garland.
For a dash of colour, or for “something blue”, consider Cushion Tanzanite Solitaire Stud Earrings crafted in 18k yellow gold.
CONTEMPORARY-CLASSIC MILLENNIUM EARRINGS
Shimansky’s contemporary-classic Millennium Earrings are elegant and understated, displaying remarkable craftsmanship and design excellence. Expertly set with two perfectly matched round brilliant cut diamonds, these minimalistic earrings have clean and modern lines that best accentuate wedding gowns with straight or square necklines. The iconic Millennium design is a Shimansky original, making it the perfect choice for the bride who is in search of something unique that will accentuate the classic features of her wedding dress in style.
DIAMOND DROP EARRINGS
Diamond drop earrings dangle below the earlobe to create a dramatic, sensual look. Shimansky’s Diamond Drop Earrings are crafted with claw set marquise shape diamonds and round brilliant cut diamonds weighing 1.97ct in total – the perfect pair of wedding accessories to create a shimmering, glamorous look. Statement diamond earrings with a longer drop are known for their fiery sparkle, catching and reflecting light as they sway with every movement. These style earrings are therefore best matched with pulled-back hairdos or with strapless gowns or dresses with an illusion or off-the-shoulder neckline where their sparkle can take centre stage.
PEAR SHAPE FANCY YELLOW DIAMOND EARRINGS
Symbolising tears of joy, a pear shape diamond has a majestic quality to it and is a striking choice for the bride with alternative taste. Pear shape diamond earrings are the perfect way to add sophisticated detail to a sweetheart wedding gown as they mirror the elegant sharp contours of the neckline. Creating a shimmering display of dancing sunlight, Shimansky’s Pear Shape Fancy Yellow Diamond Earrings are an exquisite choice for brides with an ivory or champagne gown. The Fancy Yellow diamond centre stones are set in 18K yellow gold and enhanced by a halo of micro set round brilliant cut white diamonds set in 18K white gold. Dazzling with fire, brilliance and scintillation these pear shape Fancy Yellow diamond earrings will certainly catch people’s attention as you celebrate the most memorable day in your life with your soul mate.
