Launched in 2011 in the US, Vera Wang's LOVE collection of bridal jewellery has crossed the pond and is now available in the UK exclusively at Goldsmiths.
A fashion designer best known for her ethereal wedding gowns, Wang is the undisputed queen of the bridalwear scene. She launched her first collection of wedding dresses in 1990 and, over the years, has dress many high-profile stars for their big day, including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge.
The same whimsical beauty captured in Wang's wedding gowns flows through her LOVE bridal jewellery, a collection of white gold and diamond wedding bands and engagement rings, hand-set to exacting standards. Distinguished by intricate milgrain detailing - tiny rows of beads engraved into gold - and a blue sapphire set within each engagement ring - a symbol of everlasting love - my favourite pieces are the vintage-style halo rings. The open setting allows light to flow through the gemstones, which really makes that central diamond glitter. Viewed side-on, the design resembles a crown, beneath which sits that pretty blue sapphire. It's fairytale detailing on a minature scale.
Vera Wang's LOVE collection of bridal jewellery is available in store and online at Goldsmiths jewellers.
