Diamonds, aquamarine, topaz and tourmaline. Moulded into platinum bands, or in strands around magnificent Japanese pearls and rose gold settings, we reveal some of the prettiest earrings for your spring wedding.
Showing that the big day isn't all about the ring, a pair of beautifully selected earrings can be the perfect finishing touch to a wedding day look - framing the face and complementing the bride's carefully selected hairstyle and make-up.

Finding a feature stone matching the cut and colour of your engagement stone will tie together your wedding day jewellery and coloured stones are also emerging as one of the biggest trends this season. Emeralds, sapphires or pink quartz decorated the collection of Rosa Clara's bridal line and worked a charm against the designer's catwalk of pastel coloured dresses.
It will come as no surprise that blue is still one of the favourite colours when choosing bridalearrings. When picking something, old, new or something blue choosing soft shades, like aquamarine or a deep sea colour with sapphires is a chic way to show of this tradition at its best.
Diamonds, especially if they are a brilliant cut, are always a classic. They are, of course, one of the most popular stones with brides who prefer fine jewellery rather than following statement trends. For a cheaper alternative to the turn to topaz in white which work perfect as substitutes for the dazzling diamond, especially when set with white gold.
Inspired vintage designs have also made a comeback this season. Loaded with plant motifs and Art Deco details, such as the current collection at Harry Winston, jewellery reminiscent of the roaring 20s will add an on-trend, yet retro touch to your wedding day appearance.
From delicate drop earrings to look-at-me chandeliers, there's a size and shape to suit every bride's face. Drop earrings set a delicate tone and help to elongate the face. Studs and teardrop styles will look beautiful and delicate against most face shapes and statement gems set in large casings will show off the delicate features in a diamond-shaped face perfectly.
