Statement Necklaces from Mimco for Today's Modern Bride

This year for Christmas I was absolutely delighted to receive a truly beautiful Mimco Floral Muse Necklace. Wearing it in the office today, the BD team and I began talking about how statement necklaces are a unique and popular accessory for today's modern bride.

So for my blog today, I thought I would share with you my favourite Mimco necklaces and show you how I think they can be worn to provide the perfect finishing touch to your wedding day style.

The Floral Muse Neck is a tuxedo bouquet of resin, acetate and pewter flowers, with velvet ribbons threaded through chain and pearls. Can be worn long or short by separating the pearl strands. While this may not bode well with the traditional white wedding, it would look fabulous with an ultra modern layered dress, and pulled back hair. Or if you are not bold enough to wear this yourself, perhaps it could complement your bridesmaid dresses… 

The Shambolic Choker in both jet and ivory is a new take on a Mimco classic style. Features acetate bow set with Swarovski crystals on brass chain. Short profile makes for a very wearable style. This choker would be the perfect accessory to almost any style of wedding gown, whether it be a more traditional full skirt, and a modern A-Line style. The choker is also available in black for those more adventurous.

The Tuxedo Princess choker is the darling of the speakeasy collection, teamed with gunmetal plated ball and loop chain and a selection of shell and glass pearls, with a centrally positioned princess motif emblazoned with clear Swarovski crystals. This choker is simply exquisite, with its mixture of pearls and crystals. it would complement a traditional princess gown with a fitted bodice, and a full, puffy skirt. Wear your hair pulled back with this one so that the necklace can command the full attention it deserves.

The Bella Miriam choker is inspired by the aesthetic of the deco period with vintage highlights. Glass and shell pearls, Czech faceted glass beads and metal coated balls are thread between a silver plated motif encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Another simply stunning design that would wear well with just about any style of wedding gown…

Take a glimpse into the future with this silver plated Metal Mesh choker. A combination of yesterday in tomorrow's world armoured with hammered brass rings and tubular metal mesh. Be inspired; layer these up or wear alone. A stunning piece that would look equally fabulous with a modern, fitted wedding gown with a precise cut and structure, or a more stylised cut with an empire neckline.
