The Royal Wedding last year certainly stuck in the minds of those who have closely followed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since early 2017. Meghan’s iconic veil, delicately embroidered with poppies, wintersweet and flowers representing the countries of the commonwealth, floated down the aisle of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle last May, and if there was one word that could sum up that special day, elegance would certainly be it. To many it may only seem like yesterday when the former Californian actress wed the Duke of Sussex, but surprisingly, wedding dress styles have changed since then, thus has the jewellery to wear with it.
We’ve provided a short run-down of the top 6 wedding dress styles of 2019, along with the perfect piece of Berry’s jewellery to complement each design:
1) High Necklines
Large pleated ruffs and high necklines are all in this year. Sure to set the tone down the aisle with a Victorian inspired look – the desirable style can be seen on dresses with sleeves as well as those without. These white gold pear shaped diamond drop earrings manage to keep in line with a vintage-inspired look whilst looking glamorous and understated at the same time. The key feature of the drop earrings is that they display a large pear cut diamond surrounded by a halo of small round brilliant cut diamonds, creating the impression of a much larger centre stone.

2) Subtle Bohemian
The bohemian look has been fashionable for some years now and it looks like these delicate dresses are going nowhere. Full length wedding dresses that touch the floor, paired with dainty lace and a veil to match, are perfect for combining with some simple diamonds. Floral or leaf jewellery is perfect for pairing with a sparkling hair band, like our 18ct white gold diamond set circular flower motif bracelet. Clusters of diamonds shaped into flowers combine with glistening diamond claw sets connected by bars of lustrous white gold.

If you’re looking for a wedding dress that’s hot on-trend, you can’t get more “now” than a bow or two. Bows do more than just hide the Bride’s waistline, they make a huge statement, allowing you to play it down on the jewellery front if you aren’t such a glamour-keen queen. Larger than life bows look sweet with lustrous pearl and diamond jewellery, so these freshwater pearl and diamond drop earrings are sure to look the part with a large bow centrepiece. The earrings have been crafted from 18ct white gold and feature a marquise shaped diamond surrounded by diamonds at the very centre of the design.

4) Geometric lines
Modern and certainly eye-catching, a wedding dress with sharp lines is sure to be a memorial one. Slick and contemporary, a dress like this is sure to open up a plethora of options when it comes to finding jewellery to compliment these iconic geometric styles of 2019. These cuts and clean lines are definitely on the rise since they can enhance a lady’s shape – tucking her in where she needs it most, and enhancing voluptuous curves in others. Our 18ct white gold diamond pave set bangle is a great option to combine with your bridesmaids’ dresses, particularly if you’re looking to mirror the modern, chic lines of your wedding dress onto your bridesmaids’ outfits.

From wedding dresses that look like they’ve been dipped in sheer diamond dust, to dresses with actual diamonds delicately sewn into the material – diamonds certainly are a girl’s best friend. Reflective pieces of confetti create a diamond-inspired look as do sparkling pieces of fabric interwoven into a dress or adorned to a waistband or hair accessory. Since a sparkling wedding dress is sure to add a shimmer wherever the lady goes, parred-down and understated jewellery designs are best for combining with this style. These gorgeous long diamond set hook earrings are perfect for creating a simple look. From the front they look like an elegant drop bar style earring, whilst from the side, the curvature of the hook is certain to mirror the lady’s body shape.

6) Puffed Sleeves
Not entirely the 1980’s style balloon-shaped sleeves that dominate the shoulders, but something along those lines albeit reduced is what we’re talking about. 2019 wedding dress styles are all about statement sleeves. A wedding dress with puffed sleeves opens up options for jewellery since it will look beautiful with a drop style earring or a stud – likewise a necklace or no necklace. If you did want to add a touch of sparkle to this dress style however, our white gold diamond heart pendant will look stunning against the neck.
