STYLE EDIT: 11 jewellery must-haves to style with your gown - Suzanne Harward

STYLE EDIT: 11 jewellery must-haves to style with your gown

editorial 27 February 2018

We have cumulated 11 on-trend pieces for all different tastes to save you from spending 3 hours on the fine-jewellery page of Net-A-Porter. You’re welcome.


There truly is nothing like a woman who knows what she wants. Au contraire, women who usually know their personal style inside and out are indecisive when trying on wedding gowns. Although we dress ourselves daily, the enormity of selecting the ‘perfect’ wedding look makes the task impossible.

We theorise that the concept of wearing an all white, floor-length gown is too foreign for our casual society. Similarly, pairing your accessories to match can be difficult. Noticing the pattern, we’ve done the research for you. Click below styles to shop.

1 . Ditch the dangly earrings for a crown; LELET NY

Cool girl status? Confirmed. Extra credit for styling at the back above a low pony.

 

2 . Inject pretty pastels in line with S/S 18 trends; Christie Nicolaides

 

Summer’s almost over in the southern hemisphere, but we’re not ready to call it quits with our colour-crush. (SH Bride Anna via Madeline Druce)

 

3 . Be a tastemaker and wear mis-matched earrings; Delfina Delettrez

Fendi descendant Delfina Delettrez ‘[likes her] pieces to have a classic feeling from far away, but when you approach you see it’s a contemporary piece. [She wants] to make pieces that reflect [her] attitudes to jewellery and [her] generation.’ Spoken like a true artist. Quote via Matches Fashion

 

4 . Keep it modern with a textured armlet; LELET NY

Simplicity with a twist. Editorial via Farewell Fiancé

 

5 .  Bohemian luxe; Samantha Wills

  

Half classic, half whimsical. Silver drop earrings are a mainstay in our couture showroom, often well liked by women with Boho style influence.

6. Bond-girl boldness; Christie Nicolaides

 

No one pays homage to the eternal European summer like Christie Nicolaides. We are channeling starlet Ursula Andress in all her golden glory. SH bride Jess’ earrings via Sam Jackson

 

7. For the woman who has it all and knows less is bestMisuzi For that effortless uptown-girl-elegance. You’ll catch us heading out to dinner during NYBFW wearing Misuzi. *Fun fact: Misuzi is handmade in Melbourne, just like SH, earning quality credentials.

 

8. For the traditionalist; Lucy Folk 

 

Lucy is not the designer we would usually label as ‘traditional’, though her Jewel of the Nile Studs have us coming back down to basics.

 

9. Eclecticism for the Collingwood local; Natasha Schweitzer

 

The suburb Collingwood (where our couture studio is located) is identifiable for the quirky characters you’ll see parading the streets. Not a day goes by that we don’t see a modish woman in the area, tote bag in-hand wearing geometric hoops. We picture Australian designer Natasha Schweitzer’s Alex Earring paired with our Galaxy 2.0 Gown.

 

10. Techni-coloured dreams; Sarah & Sebastian

Ok, we admit, these ones are a splurge. The limited edition Sarah & Sebastian Prism Earrings are a statement piece that will always remind you of your day, plus you can wear them again. Our pick is to style them with the S/S 18 Utopia Gown.

 

11. For the more-is-more bride; Viktoria Novak

 

You want to be unmistakably the bride by wearing a glamorous crown. You’re spending $300 a head for 500 guests and need to stand out. This is the answer.

Care & Alterations

General Care

Ensure you read the care label and cleaning instructions before attempting to clean.

By following the instructions on the care label you will keep your couture gown looking fabulous and at it’s absolute best.

Alterations

Suzanne Harward does not provide an alterations service and this also applies to Suzanne Harward online styles. We recommend you take your pieces to a reputable local tailor. Please contact our Customer Care Team should you require advice regarding alteration services in your area.

Delivery

Your couture gown will be delivered wrapped in acid free tissue paper. Gowns with embellishment will have a protective organza cover placed over the embellished area of the gown. Your gown will arrive carefully packed in to a keepsake heirloom box for safe keeping. This box will be packed inside a shipping box with a Suzanne Harward protective garment bag included in the delivery. To protect your exclusive Suzanne Harward gown we recommend you hang your garment within the protective bag provided.

Dry Cleaning

Each Suzanne Harward gown is individually handcrafted with great care and uses delicate fabric, embroideries, embellishment and lace to convey the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Suzanne Harward handwriting. This may lead to variation in finish, colour and fabrication. Please take the utmost care when cleaning and wearing your gown as jewellery, finger nails and harsh detergents can harm delicate fabrics and finishes. Embellishments and fabrics may change in colour with time and wear adding to the charm and individuality of each piece. These are not faults in the production of the garment and are consistent with handmade couture quality. Your gown will arrive protected in acid free tissue paper and an organza cover covering any embellishment. A protective garment bag is provided to ensure the gown remains in impeccable condition. Please hang your gown in the garment bag when you receive your delivery.

If you wish to clean your gown after your special day we recommend you take your gown to a reputable specialist drycleaners experienced in cleaning of delicate couture pieces.
