When it comes to making your wedding wishes come true, there’s only one label that springs to mind: Vera Wang. Renowned and adored around the world, Vera Wang’s heartfelt passion for love is breathed into each and every one of the meticulous pieces she puts her hands to, making her jewellery the perfect way to mark each chapter of your love story.

From coveted collections that utilise the most exquisite of gemstones to her philosophy on love itself, Vera Wang deserves to be celebrated in style, so read on to find out more about this lauded designer and why we simply adore her, here at Ernest Jones.

A brief history of Vera Wang

Having graduated from university with a History of Art degree, Vera Wang initially turned her interests to figure skating before entering the fashion industry where she put her artistry in sartorial excellence to the forefront.

Proof of her fashion credentials, Wang became the youngest ever editor of Vogue upon leaving Sarah Lawrence College. Serving at the magazine for 17 years, she left to join Ralph Lauren before resigning to launch her eponymous bridalwear label.

Not until after designing the gown for her own wedding in 1989, did Wang discover her love and natural talent for bridal design. The following year she opened her flagship store on Manhattan's famed Madison Avenue, introducing fashion to the bridal industry with contemporary styles and refined detailing.

The designer of choice for wedding gowns worn by personalities including Ariana Grande, Victoria Beckham, Ivanka Trump and Kim Kardashian, this is a testament to her mastery in all things bridal and how everything she puts her hands to is rooted in celebrating the resplendence of romance.

Inspired by love

Much like her work in bridal fashion, Wang's diamond creations are all inspired by love, which she infuses into every design. For Wang, love has no limits, no bounds and is an emotion that every person deserves and needs to experience, as reflected by the inclusive nature of the brand’s current campaign.

Furthermore, Wang describes her collections as paying tribute to, “A love for people who are willing to take a chance in their lives” and that “engagements are the most positive, optimistic thing we all do because you’re taking a chance on the future.”

Now that we know more about what drives Vera Wang, it’s time to explore some of her most iconic collections.

Love is all you need

Translating her pure enthusiasm for love into jewellery, the Love collection encapsulates everything that is wonderful about the iconic designer. A harmonious fusion of style, elegance and beauty, the range offers designs for both men and women that ensures the wonder of love is distributed equally.

Epitomising the beauty of the collection is this timeless and elegant pear-shape diamond ring. A beguiling choice for your betrothment, this piece is a stunning way to mark the start of your next chapter. Set on 18ct white gold, the classic stone is surrounded by a halo of glimmering diamonds and engraved with Wang’s signature LOVE inscription – ensuring the design will be the talk of many occasions to come.

The perfect complement to the bride’s ring, this men’s diamond ring is equally as sumptuous as the rest of Wang’s bridal creations. Imagined in 18ct white gold, the piece sees the thicker band accented with a strip of claw set diamonds for a truly luxurious finish. As an authentic Vera Wang piece, the inside of the shank includes the Vera Wang LOVE inscription as a tribute to your everlasting devotion.

A Wish come true

A new addition to the ever popular Love capsule, the Wish collection sees Wang turn to the ethereal splendour of sapphires for inspiration. Symbolic of optimism, purity and love, sapphires are incorporated into every piece in this range, enriching your look with both dazzling colour and coveted appeal.

Showcasing sapphires in all their glory are these 14ct white gold, sapphire and 0.14ct diamond stud earrings. An effortlessly exquisite way to add a touch of ‘something blue’ to your wedding day look, this sumptuous pair is given a signature sign-off via the WISH inscription, with further dazzle provided by a blue sapphire sitting underneath the setting.

Complete your bridal masterclass with this matching pendant from the Wish collection. Crafted from luxurious 14ct white gold, and hanging from a fine, feminine chain, the precious pendant homes a beautiful sapphire surrounded by light-loving claw-set diamonds for a truly decadent finale.
