Suggestions for a Spring Bride



The announcement of the engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle has meant that wedding season has started early this year and we are filled with anticipation to see what accessories the beautiful bride chooses to wear with her dress. Not least as this is likely to influence wedding jewellery trends for this year and next. Meghan appears to be a thoroughly modern addition to the Royal Family and so we are expecting to see a happy partnering of modernity and tradition throughout the day, which chimes nicely with our attitude to pearls; an updated approach to a timeless classic gemstone. With this in mind, here is our pick of the Claudia Bradby collections for the wedding season ahead…

Spring Pinks: The wonderful soft colour of natural pink pearls is universally flattering and the perfect complement to an ivory or white dress, with a slightly fresher feel than more traditional white pearls. Pieces from our Cirque Collection combine pink pearls with a contemporary silver hoop design for delicate but modern bridal jewellery.

New Romantic: A fresh update on the traditional symbol of love, the Signature Hearts collection would be our suggestion for romantic English garden weddings. The rose gold pieces work wonderfully with a lace or vintage inspired gown, the beautiful metallic pink balancing the femininity of the dress.

Modern Classics: With white roses rumoured to be the theme for the flower arrangements, Meghan might opt for simple elegance and a more pared back style. Our Essential White Pearl Necklace and Bangle partnered with the Duo White Earrings would make the perfect finishing touches for a gown that prized classic simplicity over intricacy.

We wish Meghan and all spring brides-to-be a wonderful day!  Shop the bridal collection…
