For the bride
The possibilities are endless when it comes to wedding jewellery for the bride. The great thing about designing your own is that the jewellery can reflect your personality, as well as making it personal and something you can look at as a memory. Below we have included classic wedding jewellery gemstones - diamonds and pearls are known for their luxury and elegance, be inspired and check out some easy jewellery tutorials to have a go at too...
Add sparkle and luxury to your outfit with diamonds...
Diamonds are said to bring balance, clarity and abundance to your life.
They are certain to make you feel amazing, with their brilliant lustre. They can be incorporated into so many designs, from earrings, bracelets to necklaces...
At Kernowcraft, we have a large selection of genuine diamonds. From our classic diamond faceted stones which offer a beautiful sparkle to diamond nugget beads which look like tiny pieces of stardust due to their natural appearance and glittering sparkle.
Add a touch of elegance with pearls...
Throughout history, pearls have been known to be worn by the powerful and rich, they're often worn by royalty on special occasions. They are the perfect choice for weddings, and offer a simple and feminine look which compliments the classic white wedding dress.
At Kernowcraft, we have a huge range of pearls that can be used with a range of jewellery designs. We also have an intriguing selection of coloured pearls which could be perfect for the more alternative bride. Take a look below at some great pearl jewellery tutorials - we love how simple pearl earrings are!
Simple & Beautiful Jewellery Projects
This design features our genuine black diamond faceted bead, which offers a truly incredible sparkle, offering something simple yet luxurious to add to your overall look. Choose your desired length chain so you can pick between a bracelet or necklace!
We would recommend using our white diamond faceted bead, which could be more appropriate for the big day.
We just love these blush pink pearls! A great way to add a subtle colour to your look. This simple design can be made so easily, with just some Devcon Epoxy glue to secure the pearls onto the earstud settings! Perfect for your wedding day.
On A Budget? Discover Cubic Zirconia...
A wedding is a huge celebration but it can be costly. If you're looking for more affordable pieces for your wedding day, cubic zirconia could be the perfect alternative. The gemstone is man made and is a synthetic crystalline substance, often used as an affordable alternative to diamonds. They're great as they come in a whole variety of colours, so you can choose the best to match your colour theme.
For the groom
Make Your Own Cufflinks
Grooms usually keep it minimal with jewellery on their wedding day but creating bespoke cufflinks could be a great way to inject some personality.
Our sterling silver cufflinks can be used to mount cabochons in bezel cups or even glue the cabochon directly onto the plate.
Make Your Own Wedding Rings
Making your own wedding rings can be tricky but there are so many workshops you can attend to get some help from a professional jeweller.
Why not choose a particular gemstone or metal? A great addition to a wedding ring is to add gemstones such as a diamond - take a look at our black diamonds for inspiration.
Another great addition could be engraving dates on your rings - a lovely personal touch which can be done with a professional jeweller.
For the bridesmaid
What better way to thank your bridesmaids for making your wedding day amazing than a personal piece of jewellery made by you?
It's the perfect way to symbolise your special day, giving your bridesmaids a meaningful gift that they can cherish forever.
There are so many options when it comes to designing jewellery, whether you create matching bracelets to wear on the wedding day or an everyday piece such as incorporating the birthstones of each bridesmaids into a bracelet.
Create Your Own Bridesmaid's Gifts...
Our ring settings are so popular and a great starting point for creating your own jewellery designs! Your bridesmaids would love these adjustable rings and you won't have to ask them for their ring size so it would be such a great surprise.
Create a bracelet for each bridesmaid and use each of their birthstones to create something really special! This is a design everyone will love and something you can all share to remember the big day. Why not even make yourself one too?
