Q. I have an understated dress for my wedding and I'm looking for statement jewellery. What would you suggest? 

A. Kirsty Taylor says: A pair of statement earrings would be on-trend and would work well with any simple dress.

It can be hard to choose a necklace if the neckline of the dress is high or plunging as the accessory could be lost entirely – so earrings could be the answer.

Traditional pearls and diamonds can be overlooked, so why not go for these icy blue topaz drop earrings? These unusual rose cut stones are large and unfussy with a great amount of sparkle.

For the traditionalists, the icy blue relates perfectly to the traditional wedding poem that says, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a silver sixpence in her shoe”.

These earrings are made in sterling silver with a contemporary matte finish and are handmade to order in our Corbridge workshop. Other matching items in blue topaz are also available.
