As a wedding professional, Waldemar Jewellers offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.
The easiest tip we at Waldemar Jewellers can give is to make sure that your jewellery should all match in some way. Say, you chose to incorporate your "something blue" and decided to go with sapphire earrings, then incorporate shades of blue somewhere in your necklace, too. In order to look stylish and sophisticated, choose gemstones that match in either color or shape for whatever pieces you choose to wear. To further perfect the look, your choice of metals should all harmonize too. Choose one metal color, whether it be yellow gold, rose gold, white gold or platinum and choose all your accessory pieces that would be finished in the same metal.
To be honest, it can be easy to go a little overboard with jewellery and accessories because here are so many gorgeous pieces to wear! However, sometimes the "less is more" motto is very true when it comes to jewellery. Try picking one or two essential pieces so you don’t end up looking like you overdid it. Remember, this is about you and you want everyone getting distracted by your accessories.
Lastly, you want to remain true to your own personality, especially on your big day. Your whole ensemble - your dress, hairstyle, shoes and jewellery should complement your own unique personality so you still feel like yourself, only better!
Some may view a wedding ring as only a material possession but everything that it symbolizes makes it the single most important wedding representation. This is the only physical piece from your wedding day that you get to take with you and wear every day. It has the power to remind you of all the happiness you've felt and the commitment you've made on that very special day. It is a daily reminder to you that every decision you make will impact not just yourself, but your spouse (and family) as well. It is a symbol of respect to your spouse and will serve as a first line of defense against infidelity. It will always be a visible symbol to everyone that your marriage matters.
So, yes, there are some people who may want to do away with tradition and look at a wedding ring as something shallow but we all need that daily reminder. Your wedding ring does that and more. Amazing how something so small can hold that much weight, huh?!
Yes, they definitely can be. I'd say that 95% of the time, the clients that we work with have different wedding rings where the gents wedding ring does not match the bride's. Go ahead and get the ring that you like rather than trying to match up with your partner. Another idea is to have complementary rings where the style can be different but made out of the same type of metal. The key here, I believe, is to know what you really want (as you will have this ring for the rest of your life) and get a jewellery designer who can accommodate these in their designs while at the same time guiding you through the wedding ring purchase.

If you personally believe in bad omens, I think so but I think there may still be ways to counter the bad juju, right?
Personally, though, it is bad luck only if the ring is damaged, I guess. Even then, you would be able to have that repaired. We can help you, if that is the case. Give us a call on (02) 9232 6289 or book an appointment with us. Our office is at the Sydney CBD.
If you are just looking for a quick clean up a soft bristled toothbrush and dishwashing liquid will do the trick.
To have the ring / Jewellery professionally polished we charge $40

Our Engagement rings start from $4000 , however I would say the average sale with our bespoke jewellery designers is $8000 + but depends on the centre stone you are looking for.
I personally feel you should only spend what you can afford.
