When it comes to Ibiza wedding jewellery and gifts, there’s one designer in Ibiza who is passionate about creating the right pieces for the right people. And there can be a lot of people to think about! Obviously there’s the engagement and wedding rings to start, then there’s jewellery to match your dress, gifts for your bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, flower girls… the list can become endless!
Cyd Hutton of JOY Jewellery is an expert when it comes to creating personalised pieces for any and all of the above, and also offers a range of beautiful collections that are perfect for weddings for those who prefer instant gratification when shopping!
Where to start on your wedding jewellery shopping list? Well, usually the bride and groom are the best place to begin, and Cyd is well-known in Ibiza (and around the globe) for her beautiful bespoke wedding rings. After meeting with each couple to get a feel for their style, she designs and creates the perfect symbols of your union. Then once you’ve got the main pieces sorted, then there’s the rest…
THE BRIDE: Cyd is brimming with ideas for simply stunning wedding jewellery that go beyond the classic matching earring and pendant set of days gone by (though she happily makes traditional pieces too). Think elegant gold headpieces that drape delicately over your hair in place of a veil, Indian-inspired ankle and foot pieces that are ideal for a barefoot beach wedding in Ibiza, hand pieces in a similar style, given vibrant modern style with colourful semi-precious stones…
THE GROOM: “Popular gifts from bride-to-groom are custom-made cufflinks,” says Cyd. “There’s also money clips, or chunky ID bracelets from the ‘Love Letters’ collection that can be customised with a lyric from your favourite song – engraved on the back of course, so he can still look tough around his mates.” Looking for a pressie for your dad too?
THE BRIDESMAIDS: “Traditionally, brides like to give their bridesmaids pretty necklaces or bracelets as a thank you, whether to be given on the morning of the wedding to be worn with their dresses or during the speeches as a thank you.” Cyd can work together with you to create something that matches your theme and colour scheme, as a unique memento of the event, or pieces from her delicate collection ‘Black to Gold’ make the perfect love-themed gifts.
THE MOTHERS: Both mum and mum-in-law are likely to have more of a taste for tradition, and Cyd loves to create personalised lockets that are designed to provide a long-lasting, wearable memory long after the wedding day is over. “It’s nice to put a piece of fabric from the bride’s wedding dress on one side and a photo in another,” she says. “Classic gemstone earrings are also a popular choice.”
THE FLOWER GIRLS: In place of a toy they might not remember long after the wedding, why not create a personalised piece designed for your littlest wedding party members to continue wearing into the future, such as a locket or pendant?
AFTER THE WEDDING: Yes, the gifts just keep on giving after the big day, as Cyd says the trend for eternity rings is coming back into fashion, plus pieces to celebrate the birth of each baby, anniversary pieces to match your wedding ring… there’s no limit to the ways you can say “I love you” with jewellery!
