With the – not yet planned – wedding, I think it’ll be a mixture of modern and traditional themes. I don’t think we’ll have a church wedding because neither myself or Sam are religious but I definitely intend to stick with the something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue tradition. Bridal Jewellery is something that will probably be considered last because I don’t tend to wear much on a daily basis anyway.
Lillicoco is a jewellery brand fit for all the ages. Whether it’s something from the Victorian era or Art Deco, they have pieces to suit everyone’s tastes. I find companies like this a lot more interesting than your standard bridal jewellery you’ll see in high-street stores and wedding dress shops. I put together a few collections of jewellery that I love from the site and hopefully if you’re getting married, you’ll get some inspiration.
I think when it comes to jewellery for me, I love anything that’s white or rose gold. I feel like we tend to suit certain colours and I don’t really suit gold rings which is why I gave Sam some helpful pointers when it came to the engagement ring.

For those who want to look lavish on the day, these pieces are sure to give off the illusion that you’re dripping in diamonds. I absolutely love the earrings and could see myself wearing them on my wedding day. I’d probably want it all white gold though.
Emerald For Days
There’s something about the colour emerald that gives me all of the feels of love and happiness when it see it on a piece of jewellery. I don’t know why it emotes these feelings but I just love the richness of the colour. The idea of wearing a brooch on a wedding dress isn’t usually the norm and its often worn on the mother of the bride or other wedding guests but I love the shape of the brooch below.

I also love that dripping effect on the necklace, it’s oozing luxury and paired with the pearl and emerald drop earrings, they’d go together very nicely. If you want a bit more colour within your wedding outfit, then these are perfect for the job.
A Homage To Gothic
From top to bottom – Fine Antique Edwardian Silver Paste Brooch -c.1900 (£115.00) | Beautiful Vintage Silver Marcasite Pendant & Chain -c.1930 (£95.00) | 9ct Gold Victorian Garnet Stick Pin c.1850 (£195.00)
This sort of jewellery takes me back to my very short ‘gothic‘ phase that I had back in high-school. I rocked the arm warmers like a trooper and wore too much eyeliner. That was pretty much the extent of it – oh and of course the teenage mood swings. I’m loving the gold pin with that red stone sitting pretty at the top.
Gold, Gold & More Gold
If you’re the complete opposite to me and love gold, then these pieces will certainly be for you. Gold is classically deemed as the richest of metals but I feel it’s a bit more old school now.
From left to right – 9ct Gold Edwardian Heart Locket c.1905 (£175.00) | Vintage 9ct Gold Russian Wedding Ring c.1990 (£215.00) | Victorian 9ct Gold Garnet Necklace c. 1850 (£245.00) | Large Italian Gold Statement Earrings – c.1975 (£185.00)
However saying that, some of these pieces are swooning me. I love those moon curved earrings, they remind me of the 50s/60s and of course, they’re very Italian. I also really like that Gold Russian ring with it’s layers of metal interweaving to create a ring that’s unique.
Do any of these take your fancy? Let me know which one you like from Lillicoco in the comments below. It’s safe to say, this is getting me all excited for my wedding day.
