THE long pe­riod of Bud­dhist lent will soon be com­ing to an end and time is just around the cor­ner for cou­ples who are plan­ning to tie the knot. Wed­ding is a very spe­cial oc­ca­sion in one’s life so as time ap­proaches cou­ples will surely be busy plan­ning how to make this event the most splen­did and most mem­o­rable mo­ment for both of them.

Pick­ing and choos­ing of a re­cep­tion hall, the right word­ing for the wed­ding in­vi­ta­tion and print­ing, the menu, wed­ding at­tire, which are guided not only by fash­ion but also by tra­di­tion, are just part of the whole process. There are many more to be placed on the check list which are needed to be han­dled in de­tail. As the bride and groom will be the two most im­por­tant peo­ple and cen­tre of at­trac­tion, jew­elry surely plays a vi­tal role to ful­fill their dream.

So when it comes to jew­elry which kinds of new jew­elry are in fash­ion dur­ing this wed­ding sea­son? Some fa­mous jew­el­ers in Man­dalay shared their opin­ions.

“Brides and grooms need to be the most out­stand­ing cou­ple in a wed­ding cer­e­mony. So as the di­a­mond be­ing the crown jewel which sparkles more than any other valu­able stones will be most suit­able for the happy cou­ple,” says Ko Moe Zaw owner of The Per­fect Di­a­mond Jew­elry sit­u­ated on 26(B) Road in Man­dalay.

The lat­est craze is the three lines, five line and seven line di­a­mond neck­laces and a va­ri­ety of di­a­mond brooches. For those who can af­ford new de­signs are be­ing cre­ated to their choice. When com­par­ing to the past five years now most pre­cious gem­stones like jade, ruby, sap­phire, peri­dot, amethyst and pearl in com­bi­na­tion with di­a­monds are cre­ated into el­e­gant de­signs. As for di­a­mond, it is the fron­trun­ner and de­spite its sky­rock­et­ing costs, the Per­fect Di­a­mond Jew­elry says it fully guar­an­tees the qual­ity of their di­a­monds.

“When it comes to jew­elry which a wed­ded cou­ple must have is an en­gage­ment ring and a wed­ding ring. Th­ese rings can be pre­served for pos­ter­ity. So it’s im­por­tant to se­lect the right choice. The bride and groom should at least think for about three months ahead to se­lect and pre­pare the jew­elry which they are go­ing to wear on the big day. Be­ing an im­por­tant func­tion also for their loved ones, par­ents from both sides should wear sim­ple and el­e­gance jew­elry. The grooms­men should wear di­a­mond stud­ded but­tons and di­a­mond brooches while brides­maids should wear a com­bi­na­tion of di­a­mond and ruby neck­lace or a com­bi­na­tion of di­a­mond and sap­phire neck­lace which will be match­ing to the colours of the at­tires that they wear,” says Ko Moe Zaw.

Ma Phyu Phyu Aung, owner of Aung Thamadi Jew­elry in Man­dalay says she would like to ad­vice brides who have more in­ter­est in jew­elry for not to get con­fused in se­lect­ing jew­elry of more clas­si­cal de­signs.

“If the Bride pre­pares her hair style as a chignon, which is a must, and wears Htain math­ein, a hip-length Myan­mar tra­di­tional jacket, she should wear a match­ing di­a­mond neck­lace or bri­dal pea­cock gold choker and dumpling style ear­rings which goes well and looks more el­e­gant. As a bride has to think of many things for the big day, she should pay more at­ten­tion of a kind of jew­elry which will match her wed­ding at­tire. As for a bride, the first thing that wed­ding guests will pay at­ten­tion is her at­tire and then the jew­elry which she wears. Al­though the wed­ding at­tire is strik­ing and the jew­elry is not that el­e­gant, all in all it will fade the at­tire and the hair style of the bride,” says Ma Phyu Phyu Aung.

Jew­elry does not mean dis­tinc­tive just by be­ing large in size as it is more im­por­tant to go hand in hand with the at­tire of the bride. Just wear­ing a pea­cock gold choker can go match­ing with the at­tire but some­times if the taste and se­lec­tion is right the at­tire and the ac­ces­sories will en­hance the beauty of the bride.

“Brides should take time to think and se­lect the right at­tire and jew­elry. If a bride may con­sult, our Aung Thamadi Jew­elry, will be most happy to pro­vide nec­es­sary ad­vice. How­ever prepa­ra­tion time should be at least two months be­fore the big day ar­rives. Some kinds of di­a­mond neck­laces need more than two months to cre­ate and then some­times re­design­ing to the bride’s lik­ing may be added so it takes about three months to make a neck­lace. Book­ing for rent­ing jew­elry from jew­elry rental ser­vice should be made in ad­vance as many cou­ples get mar­ried soon after lent is over,” says Ma Phyu Phyu Aung.

She also said that as en­gage­ment and wed­ding rings are a must for cou­ples, Aung Thamadi Jew­elry has pro­mo­tion pro­grammes for mak­ing them. Di­a­mond jew­elry falls in with any colour of the at­tire so moth­ers of both the cou­ple mostly rent the one line di­a­mond neck­lace and di­a­mond ban­gles which are sim­ply
