WEDDING JEWELRY

ALTERNATIVE

Alternative weddings are anything but ordinary and the jewelry for these unique celebrations should be just as original as the wedding!

For some couples tying the knot, having a non-traditional wedding to reflect their extraordinary love story is the only option for their big day. Alternative weddings trade cookie-cutter traditions and style for an event that is imaginative and unique, and the natural diamond jewelry for these one-of-a-kind weddings should reflect the happy couple’s style. If you want to add some sparkle to your alternative wedding while still creating a memorable look, we’ll show you the way with these diamond jewelry pieces for brides, grooms, and the wedding party that balance chic and cool for the ultimate alternative wedding.

Today’s designers are making chic wedding ensembles that suit every woman and groom’s personal style, so you don’t have to sacrifice yours on your big day. Of course, you’ll need the jewels to match. Our selection of diamond jewelry for the alternative bride and the bridal party includes modern silhouettes, sharp shapes and, of course, plenty of natural diamonds.

Diamond Bridal Jewelry for the Alternative Wedding: Necklaces, Bangles, Earrings and the Ring

An elegant suit becomes daring and ultra-modern when worn open with a lacy bralette. To up the edginess, instead of a classic line necklace, pick a piece with some movement. Jenna Blake’s diamond fringe necklace features five carats of diamond drops, each set in black rhodium. The diamonds move as you do, so they’ll catch even more light in your photographs.

The clean lines of modern, architectural bangles complement tailored suiting while adding a serious dose of glamour. Mimi So’s Piece Square eternity bangles are paved with diamonds, plus come in different colored gold and in two different widths, which makes them perfect for stacking.

Instead of drop earrings, opt for stud earrings or petite hoops with unique shapes. Kavant & Sharart’s Origami collection translates the crisp folds and edges of the paper art form into gold and diamonds. These asymmetrical Palm Leaf earrings gracefully climb up the ear. For a sneaky dose of romance, wear Cadar’s hoop earrings. From the front, they look like a classic hoop, but the side silhouette reveals a delicate heart shape.

And, of course, the diamond engagement ring! Anthony Lent’s stunning Adorned Hands ring features two carved golden hands holding a 1.81 carat pear cut diamond. It’s a thoughtful take on an engagement ring and symbolizes your union.

Diamond Jewelry for the Alternative Groom

Who says diamonds are just for the bride? Stylish grooms know that diamond jewelry can elevate their look and help distinguish their wedding from just any black tie affair. It’s his day too, after all, so don’t forget the diamond jewelry for men!

Upgrade his wedding band with Bleu Royale’s 18 karat white and rose gold wedding band,  a unique take on the classic, single-metal wedding band. It features bands of white and rose gold, and a row of black diamonds adds a subtle sparkle.

Instead of a flower, pin a vintage brooch to his lapel. This stunning arrow-shaped DK Bressler pin from the 1940s features black onyx and diamonds. It’s a handsome, unisex piece that will get plenty of wear after the ceremony.

Diamond Jewelry for the Alternative Bridal Party

Instead of matching jewelry, let your bridal party express themselves with their own personal pieces.If everyone wears diamonds, only, they will look beautiful together.

Geometric jewelry is a great way to find a cohesive look that isn’t too matchy-matchy. Start with a statement piece, like Mimi So’s Piece Pyramid ring, and layer on delicate pieces with a twist. Balance the cocktail ring with smaller bands. Eva Fehren’s Kissing Claw ring looks like a traditional diamond-set band, but is actually shaped like two curved claws that connect in the center.

Eva Fehren makes gorgeous diamond line bracelets that are perfect for special occasions, as well as for every day. She has classic styles with petite round diamonds, as well as offset bracelets featuring unique diamond shapes. Stacking several adds visual interest and movement.

Top off the look with Silva & Cie’s choker with a diamond heart-shaped pendant, which adds a romantic touch, Kavant & Sharart’s open hoops and triangular, trillion cut diamond stud earrings.

For a more eclectic look, the bridal party can try mixing lots of diamonds with different cuts, using necklaces as the focal point. Eva Fehren’s diamond charms come in many shapes for a one-of-a-kind look; layer two for even more shine.

Kavant & Sharart’s Origami earrings bring plenty of drama, and could even be worn alone for a more minimalistic look. The architectural shape is ultra-modern and nicely contrasts with the more organic shapes of the rest of the jewelry.

Also, diamond rings don’t need to be reserved just for the bride, especially when worn on the pointer finger. This stunning ring from Eva Fehren recreates the look of a more significant diamond by setting an elongated white diamond baguette with two trapezoid side stones and a pavé band.

The finishing touch is a scattered diamond bracelet featuring mixed grey diamonds from Silva & Cie. Here, rough and faceted grey diamonds add a bit of sparkle without being overpowering. After all, you can’t overshadow the bride on her big day.
