Initially, wedding jewelry used to consist of just a wedding ring, but now,
times have changed drastically. The last 10 years have witnessed a revolutionary
movement in the field of retail jewelry. People have been moving towards add-on
accessories to let them stand out on that occasion. The investment in the field
of jewelry is increasing day by day. Men are no exception.
Now, the women are seen moving towards stone-studded rings. They are just trying
to get out of the plain marriage bands. It is the time for simple to go out and
sparkle to come in. Men have also started being fashionable regarding rings. The
UK had conducted a survey regarding wedding jewelries off late. It was found
that one-fourth of the total grooms preferred wearing a diamond-studded ring.
Men are turning out to be more ‘design-focussed’. They have begun to realize
that they should not only cater to the likes of their would-be better half but
also give importance to their own choice.

Another trend catching up is that of inclusion of a wide range (of jewelry) as
compared to the traditional ones. Tiaras are getting in greater demand day by
day. They provide a huge range of bracelets and earrings matching with the
rings. The headdresses and tiaras are the most sought-after materials these
days. Some women designs continue to be traditional. This is attributed to the
royal style of the past. It proves that the girls wish to look like a princess
on this great day.
Fascinators are also drawing the attentions of the prospective groom and bride
now days. They are nothing but the ones consisting of feathery creations
accompanied by some crystals. They are put on by the bride’s mother and other
female relatives. Bridesmaids have an important role to play in the weddings.
Hence, they should not be ignored at all. Some jewelers have taken a note of it
and come up with jewelries, especially for this category. Whatever might be the
jewelry, women have always been looking for understated, classic designs that
are complementary to the easygoing wedding dress. At times, these designs can
overwhelm the corresponding dress as well.
However, the retailers are facing problem regarding convincing the customers to
go for jewelry like tiara. This is because this jewelry can be put on only on
that special day. Some of them have found a solution to this. They have done so
by taking back the intricate pieces (after wedding) and having stones reset into
a different piece altogether so that they can be worn on a daily basis.
Inspite of all these innovations, there is no sign of color change. Majority of
brides still prefer wearing white dresses. Hence, the jewelry is either crystal
or pearl based. This complements the dress. Colorful jewelry is worn by the
bridesmaids instead. Generally they wear black dresses; hence colored jewelry
suits them the most. It is a known fact that the ring is bought by the groom.
The bride then buys earrings and bracelets, and of course, the groom’s ring.
