The items of jewellery you choose to wear on your wedding day will become precious keepsakes that will serve as wonderful reminders of a day full of love and joy whenever you look at or wear them. Wedding bands are worn each day and are the most symbolic aspect of your wedding day. Cufflinks, tie pins or pocket watches are excellent gifts from a bride to her groom, while any bride on her wedding day will love a bracelet or necklace from her husband-to-be, it's an uber romantic token of love before taken the steps towards wedded bliss. Take time in your selection – these are special pieces that may well end up becoming some of your most cherished possessions so be sure to check out our list below and then pop along to their shops or studios.
