How To Buy Bridal Jewellery Online


The Ivory Room's bridal jewellery and wedding jewellery collection is huge, and with so many hundreds of products to choose from how do you choose what is right for you?

We have compiled the following tips and pointers to assist you in making the best choices when buying bridal jewellery online.

1. Check measurements and sizes 

One of the most important things to consider when buying bridal jewellery online is the SIZE.

Necklaces: Typically, when buying a bridal necklace online, sizing takes a one-size-fits-all approach. Many of our necklaces feature extension chains which allow you to customise the length.

If you're not sure if a bridal necklace comes with an extension or not, please feel free to send us an email.

Earrings & Bracelets: Bridal Earrings and bridal bracelets are made in a variety of proportions and sizes and it is important you know that the size you are buying is right.

Most of the bridal earrings and bridal bracelets in our collection will include a detailed description of the design, with accurate measurements provided.

Ensure you check the sizing given, or contact us if you need more information.


2. Test if the size suits you

Simply compare it against something similar that you already own - this is the best way to judge.

For bridal earrings, if you don't own something similar, simply take a ruler and measure the length next to your face from the lobe. You will then see exactly where the bridal earring or other earring will land against your bone structure.

TIP: You could also make a paper cut-out of the size to place next to the face to give you a feel for overall dimension.

For bridal bracelets, the same is useful. Measure the desired item against a similar bracelet you own to see if it will fit.

TIP: You can take a measuring tape or piece of string and measure the circumference of your wrist to determine how well the bridal bracelet or special occasion bracelet will fit you.

Note: Most of our bracelets are designed to be slightly floppy and comfortable when worn, very few are designed to fit super-tight onto your wrist. Bear in mind that every bracelet will have some degree of "give" in it. This is normal!


3. Decide on how sparkly you want your jewelry to be

Bigger stones = bigger sparkle. 

Bridal jewellery and bridal accessories that use dozens of small stones in a "pave" setting will give less of an overtly sparkly look, and more of a subtle vintage shimmer. This is often used to show-off a sparkling feature stone.

Bridal jewellery that uses large stones will have a bold "blingy" look to resemble extremely valuable real diamonds.

TIP: Our Cubic Zirconia pieces with big stones are recommended if you want to mimic the look of Hollywood / Red Carpet Jewels.

TIP: If you prefer more "everyday" sized jewels, then shop for pieces that are smaller sized. This may mean opting for a small sized earring with a single stone, or a larger earring that uses a lot of small stones. 

Special Tips For Buying Wedding & Special Occasion Jewelry Online: 

When buying jewelry online for your wedding, whether it be bridal earrings, a bridal bracelet or bridal headpiece, we understand the need to get it right!

Please read carefully the detailed description and measurements section on each listing.

We also make suggestions on items to match it with to make it easier for you co-ordinate perfectly. 


Accessorising for weddings is a little bit different to the everyday....


Because everything is a little larger than life on your wedding day! You will be wearing more makeup, your hair will be "done", you will have your photo taken a lot, and people will be viewing you from a distance. You're also wearing a big white dress!

With all of this in mind, the bridal jewellery you wear on that day will often look smaller and more subtle than you originally envisage.

What looks big and bold against your everyday clothing will look a lot more subtle next to a wedding gown. 

TIP: You should definitely consider going bolder with your choices (even just slightly), when it comes to choosing the size of your wedding jewellery and bridal accessories if you want them to hold their own in your wedding day look. This is especially true for earrings!

Very tiny or overly modest bridal earrings will be practically invisible from a distance and even less visible in your wedding photos.
