Why Fred’s Lovelight jewellery collection works for the noncore brides
Say I do to the ring
If paging through endless copies of glossy wedding magazines still has you coming up short in the inspiration department for your own big day (hipster weddings? Done and overdone), you might want to consider our alternative guide when it comes to tying the knot. For that matter, before you even remotely fuss about the dress and the seating arrangements, the ring takes priority. And while a rock from a maison of renown has a spot in our books, we get the women who are casting their nets wider and further for something a little under the radar (read: A ring that's not flashing on the finger of every other bride).
Enter Fred with the Lovelight collection — yes, besides your favourite Force 10 they do bridal stuff too — which features new additions that sees the brilliant-cut diamonds set on the outside as opposed to taking pride of place as the centre stone. Instead, this spot goes to a 1-carat teardrop-shaped solitaire, uniquely positioned sideways. Even the band itself is of a graphic make, reinvented by the French jeweller in an open bandeau style to create an engagement ring that's immaculately modern yet timeless. Meant to immortalise that meaningful 'I do' moment, the Lovelight collection also includes a pendant necklace and earrings in the same teardrop design for a matching parure to wear down the aisle.
The Lovelight collection is available at the Fred boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Level B2M-200.
