Getting Married? What’s The Trend At Page Fine JewellerySeptember 19, 2016
Being an established family jeweller since 1925, Page Fine Jewellery Ely and Newmarket has seen years of jewellery trends come and go, and more often than not, come back again. This is true for bridal jewellery too. This wedding season, we have seen a pattern emerging for brides to be when it comes to their engagement ring, wedding ring and bridesmaid’s gifts, in both our ready-made designs, brands and bespoke jewellery. Across all of these, the movement is personalisation. A name, a date or a quote can now be easily applied to any item of jewellery and thanks to engraving technology, in any style imaginable – even your loved one’s own fingerprint. For the bridesmaids, a charm bracelet such as Thomas Sabo always goes down a treat, with charm to represent the day, or their initial for a more personal touch. Charm bracelets will always be a hot trend!
As for our bespoke engagement ring customers, it has been noted that they are now looking for that “modern, but with a classic twist” style, for example clean solitaires but with deco style millegrain shoulders, or a trilogy with a curling Victorian profile, and these styles will be carried on to the wedding rings, with couples choosing a design that has a matching element for both of them, and somewhat unsurprisingly, white coloured metals still come out on top. Our engagement and wedding rings pictured are from leading brands Brown and Newirth and The Raphael Collection are some of the hot trend styles, with different diamond shapes becoming more popular.
Pearls are the most popular choice for brides, in silvery white tones, accented with diamonds, which creates a classy and elegant look. Because pearls have been fashionable for so many years, we often find that a customer wishes to match her “something old” pair of pearl earrings with a necklace, usually just the one pearl on a delicate chain.

For those brides who prefer the real “wow” factor, Diamonfire has been ticking that box, made to look like real diamonds, large glitzy statement earrings and glamorous tennis style bracelets with the matching necklace create a real sparkle.
For next year, the patterns and styles on the horizon are delicate swirls with a celtic feel, and romantic love knot designs, so we may see this translate into the bridal jewellery!
