  • Wedding Jewellery Guide

    Wedding Jewellery

    Once you’ve found your dream wedding dress, the next step is to accessorise. The colour, style and neckline of your dress are all important in determining which bridal jewellery you should choose. To help you add the finishing touches to your big day, we’ve created a wedding day jewellery guide to ensure you get the perfect match.

    Wedding Dress Shades

    If you’ve opted for a traditional white or diamond-white wedding dress, golds may clash with the cool white hues of your gown so we suggest sticking to pearls, silver and white gold. Ivory, cream and champagne wedding dresses usually contain yellow undertones so we recommend matching your gown with rose or yellow vermeil, ivory coloured pearls or 9ct yellow gold.

    Wedding Dress Designs

    A general rule of thumb is, if your wedding dress features lots of detail, you will need to pair this with subtle simple accessories. If your dress is more of a minimal design, you can add bolder statement jewellery. This season, romantic floral wedding dresses are popular, however it is best to stay away from floral jewellery and instead we recommend curls and circles to replicate the petals subtly for a more complimentary look. For traditional lace dresses, timeless pearls compliment this style beautifully. If your gown features sparkling crystal embellishment, you could add glittering cubic zirconia stones or diamond jewellery.

    V-Neck

    When wearing a V-neckline, a single stranded pendant that replicates a similar triangular V-shape would suit this style best. The length of the necklace depends on the depth of the V, ideally the necklace should sit just above the neckline. Our Silver & Pavé Simple Pearl Pendant creates a perfect V shape and is available in two adjustable chain lengths to suit different necklines.

    Scoop Neckline

    Scoop necklines can be either high or low, so finding the right length necklace is key. A round necklace that mimics the neckline would suit this style best. Our Silver and Pearl Cluster Necklace would sit perfectly above a high scoop neckline, without distracting your attention away from the dress. If you plan on wearing earrings with a high scoop neckline, then we recommend staying away from long dangly earrings which may look overcrowded. Opt instead for small studs or drop earrings like our Pearl Cluster Stud Earrings or Silver Simple Pearl Drop Earrings.

    Boat Neckline

    A boat neckline is one of the harder shapes to style as many necklaces can look too heavy or cut off the neckline. It’s best to keep your look simple with either a small pendant or opting for no necklace at all. Instead choose a statement bracelet or earrings such as our Pearl Triple Stand and Pavé Wave Bracelet or Silver & Pavé Twisting Pearl Earrings.

    Strapless Or Spaghetti Straps

    Strapless and spaghetti strap dresses show the most skin, so by adding a necklace you will create a more balanced look. A simple necklace like our 9ct Gold Pearl & Diamond Curl Pendant will accentuate the neck and collarbone without looking too heavy on the skin. Simple earrings like our White Gold, Pearl & Diamond Twirl Studs or 9ct Gold, Pearl & Diamond Simple Studs would finish this elegant style.

    You can view our full range of bridal jewellery online or if you would prefer one of our expert personal shoppers to assist you, why not head to one of our Azendi stand alone stores. Our stores offer a free one-to-one consultation where you can try on various styles to find the perfect jewellery for your dress.

  • Mother of the Bride Jewellery Guide

    mother of the bride

    The mother of the bride is a big part of any wedding and we understand that you’ll want to look and feel your best. If you’ve already got your outfit and the all important statement hat then the only thing left to complete your look is some complimenting jewellery. To ensure you shine on your daughter’s wedding day, we’ve created a mother of the bride jewellery guide.

    Gold or Silver

    When choosing whether to opt for gold or silver jewellery the most common solution is to match your skin tone. Cool skin tones favour silver and white gold, whereas warm skin tones favour yellow and rose gold. If you still can’t decide, then not to worry, mixing metals is a popular look. Our Entangled collection features a stunning colour combination of sterling silver, yellow and rose gold vermeil that would complete your outfit perfectly.

    A Touch of Sparkle

    The mother of the bride outfit is often known as the second-most important outfit you’ll ever wear so why not add some show-stopping sparkle. Our Glittering Promise collection features some breathtaking sparkling formations which have been crafted from the highest quality of pavé cubic zirconia stones. Available in sterling silver, rose and gold vermeil, the collection incorporates a variety of beautiful designs which will add a touch of glamour to your outfit. You can see the full collection here.

    Matching Colours

    Finding the perfect shade can often be a burdensome task, so we take pride in offering a large variety of precious gemstones. If your outfit contains pinks or purples then the natural choice is amethyst. For autumnal tones, bright amber gemstones would work well. Peacock pearls are the perfect choice when matching your navy or royal blue outfit. Or if you’re wearing a statement red then garnet would add the finishing touch. Take a look at our full colour range here.

  • Ring Sizing Explained

    free ring sizer

    Ensure you get the perfect fit, with our complimentary ring sizer. To receive a complimentary ring sizer by post, please email us your name and UK postal address here.

    At Azendi we measure most of our rings in European sizes. A European size is the circumference of the ring measured in millimetres.

    Conversion chart from UK to our European sizes

    J = 50                 O = 56            S = 62

    K/L = 52             P = 58            T/U = 64

    M/N = 54          Q/R = 60        V/W = 66

    If it is not convenient to order the ring sizer above, then we suggest you print out the sizing guide below.

    1: Size your finger by printing off this ring sizing guide. You must print it at the exact size.

    2: It is important to measure your ring size at the end of the day when your fingers are at their largest. This will enable you to get the most accurate ring size. Do not measure when your hands are cold as your fingers will be at least half a size smaller than usual.

    3: Rings with a thick band may feel tighter than a thin band. Buying one size up from your usual ring size is recommended in these cases.

    4: If you’re buying a gift for someone, try to borrow their ring and use our ring sizer guide to determine its size.

    5: Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; it should be snug enough so that it doesn’t fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.

  • Cufflinks Guide

    Cufflinks add the final touch to any shirt and will always ensure that you’re dressed to impress. Whether you’re looking for a formal or an every day at the office style, we’ve got a cufflink to suit all needs. Not sure which style is for you? There’s a few things to consider before purchasing cufflinks…

    Cufflink Types

    Cufflinks

    Whale Back Closure Cufflinks

    Whale back cufflinks are one of the most popular styles as they are easy to handle. The ‘whale tail’ is attached at the end and flips completely flat against the post allowing it to be threaded through the shirt and flips back again to lock. This simple mechanism allows the wearer to easily fasten them and keep them securely in place. For a simple but sleek look, our Steel Diagonal Stripes Cufflinks and Textured Steel Cufflinks have a hinged back to create this whale tail effect.

    Bullet Back/Toggle Closure Cufflinks

    Similar to a whale-back fastener, the toggle closure cufflinks are easy to use and keep securely fastened. The toggle is flipped 90 degrees to line up inside the post and flipped back again to secure. These cufflinks are ideal for formal occasions or in the office. Simple yet sophisticated our Black Square Cufflinks would complete any smart suit.

    Stud/Button Cufflinks

    The stud cufflink is the most secure and robust cufflink as there are no moving parts. With a fixed back, the smaller head is threaded through the loop of the shirt at an angle and straightened to lock in place. Stud cufflinks are generally smaller and lighter in weight, making it one of the most practical types of cufflinks as well as stylish. Our Anodised Titanium Cross Cufflink has been crafted from solid titanium on a turning lathe to eliminate the need for any moving parts, therefore making it one of our strongest cufflinks.

    Cufflink Metals

    Cufflinks

    Stainless Steel Cufflinks

    One of the most common and fashionable metals used for cufflinks is stainless steel. Known for being durable and resilient, it will not tarnish or discolour over time. For a cufflink that will stand the test of time, see our Rectangle Steel Grooves Cufflinks which has grooved rectangles for a stylish finish.

    Plated Brass Cufflinks

    Cufflinks crafted from plated brass are strong and durable. Our brass cufflinks are plated with nickel for a hard and shiny finish. Perfect for everyday wear, our Simple Square Cufflinks have a polished finish for a classic look.

    Titanium Cufflinks

    Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all metals making it lightweight and extremely strong. Usually a matt grey colour, we’ve anodised our Titanium Grooves Cufflink, treating them with an electric current to create a rainbow effect of colour, that will not fade.

    Cufflink Designs

    Cufflinks

    Embellishment

    Whether you want to match a colourful tie or your favourite shirt, embellished cufflinks are available in a wide variety of designs and colours. The sky is the limit with these designs and our Aeroplane Cufflinks create a fun and playful style.

    Enamel

    Enamel is a popular material for adding colour gloss on top of a metal surface. Made from fused powered glass it creates a hard and glossy finish which will not fade. The technique used to create these cufflinks allows for intricate, bright and fun designs like our Striped Enamel Rectangle Cufflinks and Union Jack Round Cufflinks.

    Mother of Pearl

    Mother of pearl is a valuable and precious material which makes it perfect for formal attires. The pearl is inlayed into the metal making it strong and resilient. With an iridescent finish, our Mother Of Pearl Piano Cufflinks would create some eye-catching effects on any dance floor.

    All of our cufflinks are delivered in a stunning hinged presentation box, making it the perfect gift for  weddings, birthdays or Father’s Day. See our full cufflink range here.
