The 2020 Wedding Edit

Wedding jewellery for you to gift and wear for years to come

This time of year always feels ‘loved up’. With Christmas Day one of the most popular times to get engaged (just ask our founders Alice and Ed!) and Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away, many couples are starting the new decade by celebrating their relationships and looking to the future.

Of course, the planning stages of a wedding often begin with the big things on the tick list – the date, the venue, the photographer – but your wedding jewellery is an element that shouldn’t be overlooked. Whether you are searching for the ideal bespoke wedding rings for yourselves, a meaningful wedding day gift for your significant other or something special for your wedding party, the right jewellery can add extra personal and beautiful details to the day.

As we welcome 2020 and look forward to all the wonderful weddings that will take place this year, we have picked some of our favourite pieces of jewellery, ideally suited for gifting or wearing when the date comes. From cufflinks and lapel pins, to personalised necklace and wedding bands, our collections of men’s accessories and women’s jewellery have got you covered.

Bespoke wedding rings, for you

wedding rings | Alice Made This

 “The perfect wedding ring, for me. Understated, considered and beautiful design. The matte finishing is hard to fully appreciate until you see in person.”- Michael, 4mm platinum wedding ring - matte 

First things first, the wedding rings! Our collection of contemporary and simple wedding rings offers the perfect bands to exchange on your wedding day, or a beautiful engagement ring for him. Cast in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter by our expert jewellers before being delicately finished by hand, each of our wedding rings is made to order to suit yours and your partner’s individual style.

Simply choose the width of your ring, the material and the finish and we'll create your bespoke wedding ring to your exact sizing requirements. All of our wedding bands can be made in a range of sizes to fit men and women perfectly. 

Stamped with our unique hallmark by the UK Assay office, our bespoke 2mm and 4mm wedding rings are available in 18ct gold, 18ct rose gold, 18ct white gold and platinum. With clean and honest form, the squared edge and curved underside is designed for the utmost comfort, creating a minimalist, timeless design.

Our made to order wedding bands are delivered to you in our Alice Made This gift box and are paired with a pocket size ceremony box for you to use on your wedding day.

At the moment, our particular favourite is the 2mm platinum wedding band in our signature blasted finish. A classic width for a fine look, the 2mm ring feels refined and elegant while the blasted texture gives it a contemporary edge.

Bayley Quink cufflinks, for him

black cufflinks | Alice Made This

"Going with a black, green and gold theme, I completed my look with AMT's Bayley Quink blue/black cufflinks. Not only did they perfectly complete the outfit, they actually received the most compliments over everything else I wore.” Rikesh

You can’t beat the lustrous blue black colour of our Bayley Quink cufflinks for creating a rich yet timeless statement. If you’re searching for a gift that your new husband can wear on the big day and for the years that follow, these cufflinks are a gorgeous choice.

Precision turned in solid brass before being artistically hand decorated with our London based patina artist Derek Bayley, the Bayley cufflinks are informed by ancient patina techniques. A combination of Potassium Sulphide and Copper Nitrate is oxidised through atmospheric exposure and expertly layered by hand to create the deep colours and their beautiful surface finish. Plus, no two pairs are ever the same so you can gift your fiancé something truly personal, with a unique character and quality of its own. Not sure the Quink tones will match his suit? Our collection of patina cufflinks features shades to suit every outfit.

Dot gold necklace, for her

 “Love this necklace. It is beautifully designed - simple and gorgeous...”- Victoria

Also available in rose gold and silver, the Dot gold necklace is one of our most beautiful and personal gift choices for your bride-to-be.

The solid brass dot token is precision turned in our British Aerospace factory before being hand polished and finished with a 3-micron, 24 carat gold rich, precious metal finish. Hanging elegantly on a 40cm snake chain, made with a vermeil quality 24 carat gold finish, the Dot necklace is a truly versatile piece of jewellery, perfect for wearing every day, including your wedding day.

What’s more, the Dot necklace has been precisely designed with a dedicated space to engrave a personal detail or message on, making it a beautiful gift for your fiancé. Whether you want to engrave the date of your wedding, her initials or a message, you can gift her a piece of jewellery that will not only look great, but hold special meaning.

Edward copper cufflinks, for the best man and groomsmen

copper cufflinks | Alice Made This

“I wanted to give my ushers and best man a really beautiful gift that they could wear on the day and keep to remember the occasion. I opted for the Edward copper cufflinks. My ushers and my best man were blown away and the cufflinks received lots of compliments. The cufflinks complemented the colour palette of our wedding and were a really special part of our outfits. The craftsmanship is exquisite and I am glad I was able to find such a meaningful gift.” – Tom

One of the most sophisticated ways of thanking your best man and groomsmen for their support has to be with a timeless pair of cufflinks. Our top choice is the Edward copper cufflinks with their warm, rich tones and flat face for engraving.

Precision turned from a solid bar of copper the Edward cufflinks have a clean, machined finish. Made in England, by a team that specialises in aerospace and engineering part production, our Edward cufflinks are beautifully simple and unique, offering the perfect attention to detail for your big day. Also available in brass and steel, you can decide whether your groomsmen would prefer matching metals or to have a different pair each.

These copper cufflinks have a flat face which is the ideal surface to engrave on to, meaning you can personalise your gifts with the initials of your groomsmen so that they can wear them to work and other special occasions for years to come.

Charlie rose gold bracelets, for the maid of honour and bridesmaids

"Beautiful, elegant and modern. Looks stunning with my gold 'Dot' bracelet. Perfectly understated in a statement kind of way!" - Cassie

As with your groomsmen, when it comes to showing your bridesmaids how much they mean to you, personalised jewellery is a great way to go. In the studio, we are loving the Charlie rose gold bracelet, a beautiful ID bracelet made with a vermeil quality 24 carat rose gold finish.

Featuring a black twisted cord manufactured in Malvern with our British marine rope makers, the minimal and personal bracelet for her is perfect for gifting. With the precision milled bar, you can engrave the names of your bridesmaids onto the bracelets for a fantastic, personal detail.

These bracelets are one size, featuring a flat disc toggle that can be tightened or loosened, so you don’t need to worry about buying the wrong size. Also available in gold and silver, the Charlie bracelet will be a gift that your special ladies cherish as their new favourite wardrobe staple.

Dot oversized pin by Jessica Bird, for your dad or new father-in-law

rose engraved lapel pin | Alice Made This

“I wanted to create pieces that were personal to me but also resonate with many others and therefore chose flowers based on their symbolic meanings… The rose (my middle name) is symbolic of love.” Jessica Rose Bird

Lapel pins are a wedding classic with flowers traditionally pinned onto the lapel or worn through the buttonhole of a suit jacket. At Alice Made This, we have taken this wonderful tradition and approached it with our signature, minimalist aesthetic.

Our collection of lapel pins, designed with Scottish artist and illustrator Jessica Bird, see her gorgeous illustrations of British flowers engraved onto their surfaces. Featuring the rose, thistle, freesia and poppy, we have created a collection of colourful patina lapel pins as well as a more pared back series of oversized steel pins. If you’d prefer a blank canvas, we also have brass and steel lapel pins available with a blank face, in either a mottled or machined finish, so that you can choose to engrave your own initials, messages or memories onto the pieces.

For the ideal gift for your dad or your new father-in-law, we recommend the Dot oversized pin by Jessica Bird, with your choice of flower engraving. A meaningful token, the intricate flower artworks are diamond drag engraved into the surface of each pin after each piece has been precision turned in solid aerospace grade stainless steel, creating a clean and machined finish. Bring the tradition of wearing flower lapel pins up to date with this precise and engineered take.

Our Mia silver necklace is just that. A clean and refined statement, this circular token is the perfect example of understated elegance. Not only will it go with any outfit she has planned for your wedding, but she will be able to dress it up and down for any occasion that follows. More of a gold or rose gold fan?
