Jewelry designer Penny Preville describes her designs as feminine and romantic, so it was only a matter of time, as she says, before she started her own bridal line. Channeling inspiration from women in historic love stories, her jewelry is both fine and elegant and easily can be worn on your wedding day and beyond.
Here, she gives us style advice for choosing your wedding day jewelry (aside from the rings) and talks about which celebrities she would love to see in her jewels. —Cari Wolfert
What made you decide to start designing a bridal collection?
My designs, being feminine and romantic, have always appealed to brides. The real start of the collection itself was when my oldest son asked me to design a ring for his bride-to-be, Mara. When I started getting other requests I began to realize that now was the right time in my career to launch this line.
What advice would you give to brides about how to pick their wedding day jewelry?
Despite my obsession with jewelry, I am a firm believer that the dress is the most important. A bride should pick jewelry to showcase the dress and not the other way around...
