If you are a keen follower of fashion, you may have already read our article on the Best Looks from the New York Bridal Week SS18 featuring bridalwear by Monique Lhuillier, Oscar De La Renta, Marchesa, Berta, Naeem Khan, Anne Barge, Reem Acra, Lela Rose, Ines Di Santo, Jenny Packham, Marchesa Notte, Mira Zwillinger, Randy Fenoli, Christos Costarellos, Sachin +Babi, Theia, among others. Whimsical play on lace, whispers of Chantilly, accented with applique work, pearls, crystals, intricate embroideries, hand painted laces, very tailored specific details, statement pieces that make you feel like a princess on your wedding day – we reckon that’s what your list of things to look for in bridal wear probably reads like. Now, add some diamonds to your shopping list.

Classically timeless jewels are your best friends no doubt. For instance, Chopard’s For You collection embodies elegance. Dainty creations inspired by springtime and pretty cherry blossoms sparkle through necklaces, earrings, single rings adorned with pear-shaped diamonds and sparkling corolla. 

The Tulip solitaire ring by Nirav Modi draws upon the beauty of the tulip flower. An ancient declaration of love, the tulip is said to symbolize passion and grace. The soft contours of the flower have inspired the tapered setting for this brilliant-cut solitaire ring.

Non-traditional pieces too can help you walk the fine line between classic and contemporary. Spinelli Kilcollin shows the way with its newly-launched Wedding Collection rings. Inspired by the musician poet Orpheus, who is said to have charmed all living things and stones with his music, this Orpheus ring by Spinelli Kilcollin features a conflict-free diamond hidden on the inside of the band.

Be it a statement diamond necklace from Graff and tiara from Cartier or minimalistic diamond jewels from Messika’s Joy collection, wear what matches your style and gown.
