The Emerald Bride

Emerald resembles successful love, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. So for ‘the emerald bride’ who loves everything and all that is emerald, I have selected luxurious fashion and make-up to cater for you.

The Gown

Oscar De La Renta’s sophisticated embroidered silk faille gown oozes elegance and glamour all rolled into one; a difficult look to accomplish. The intricate detailing of jewels and gems on both the bottom, top and borders of the gown is just beautiful. This piece will definitely attract attention for all the right reasons!

Amrapali’s Floral Carved Emerald Earrings

Amrapali‘s jewellery is renown for their designs and high quality; and these earrings are like nothing I have ever seen before. The stunning floral carvings on the emeralds add personality to these and would compliment any outfit without the need of a heavy necklace.

Amrapali’s Trio of Emerald Rings

Wow. Wow. Wow. These rings are beauties! Emerald rings are pieces which could never go out of fashion for years to come. These have a combination of diamond and emerald which are set in silver and gold; which means you can get the best of everything all rolled into one.

These stunning Zambian emerald floral earrings by Amrapali are a statement on their own. This would work well with a white or emerald gown, and would not need a necklace to compliment it. The mixture of delicate small and medium diamonds and emeralds emulate beautiful flowers. The emerald and diamonds are set in gold; these can pair up nicely with an outfit with gold or silver embroidery.

The Clutch

The clutch uses a smooth silver framed push and has luscious metallic lambskin lining. This clutch could also compliment a white satin gown.

The Ruby Lover: Luxurious Accessories

Throughout the ages it’s rubies that have been the favoured jewel of Kings and Queens alike, with their alluring and bewitching charms, when it comes to weddings, rubies add an unmistakably sumptuous and regal touch, a safely luxurious colour for the most luxurious day of anyone’s life.

Evoking elegance, warmth and wonder, ruby is the ideal colour for a wedding reception. As a base colour it’s very easy to conjure together a simply glorious theme, and our wonderful Think Shaadi partners have a splendid array of designs in which to create something truly beautiful.

Accessories maketh the bride…..

Beginning with ruby accessories, the colour has been an integral and distinguished part of bridal wear for centuries, crossing the cultural divides and forever synonymous with love.


You simply couldn’t have a ruby themed wedding reception without including a ruby jewel to dazzle and amaze. Amrapali Jewels, emerging from the Mughal splendour of Jaipur, they have since become globally recognised as purveyors of luxury jewellery design, with unprecedented style and grace.

This pair of stunning earnings, which mix diamonds, rubies and pearls, would be a fine addition to a brides outfit, although of course brimming with regal tones, they also offer a bride a sense subtlety, rather than being overwhelming.

As for a neat yet stunning bag, this design by the much lauded Judith Leiber is a playful yet stylish accessory for a bride wanting to mix colours with confidence. An icon of couture, Leiber has been designing for over 50 years, and has amassed a panoply of devotees, including nearly every First Lady of the United States.

London based Aruna Seth has steadily become a remarkable force in the world of shoe design, making an impact with her range of intricately created shoes, which emphasise comfort and elegance, with a degree of unparalleled craftsmanship.
