Published on May 12, 2016

Wedding season is well under way, and if you are the bride-to-be, chances are you have already decided on a honeymoon destination with your significant other. Among all of the other daunting wedding planning tasks, choosing a honeymoon location that speaks to you is one of the most exciting of them all! Of course, a wedding is something many brides have looked forward to for years; but after the big day is over (and all of the stress that may come with it), it’s nice to know you have a relaxing holiday ahead.

Whether you choose to honeymoon immediately following your nuptials, or you decide to wait a few months, it’s never too early to start compiling a packing list. For the more adventurous couple who jet off to Africa, for example, it’s wise to research entry requirements and make sure your passport is up-to-date. For the couple seeking ultimate R&R, your list will probably be pretty lax. Although that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to purchase the bathing suit you’ve had your eye on, or to start scuba diving lessons.

Ahead, we have rounded up five of the most emerging honeymoon destinations and how to pack your jewelry accessories for each – because even grooms are wearing their wedding bands on safari! Prepare to experience a heavy case of wanderlust.

For the couple who has a love of wildlife: North Skeleton Coast, Namibia (Photo credit: iStock)
Located on Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, luxury safari camps and stunning red-rock landscapes create an idyllic desert oasis. The Black Jade collection’s atmospheric silhouettes perfectly capture this breathtaking location.
For the couple who seeks utter relaxation: Cook Islands (Photo credit: iStock)
Southwest of the frequented honeymoon destination, Tahiti, Tapuaetai (also known as One Foot Island) is uninhabited and your answer to luxurious seclusion. Although all one really needs is a swimsuit, a stretchy and effortless Primavera bracelet is a great barely-there accessory for white sand.
For the couple who adventures together: Patagonia (Photo credit: iStock)
With the jagged Andes mountaintops, breathtaking fjords and pristine glaciers to boast, Patagonia is a senses overload. Where wilderness holds all the cards, couples are sure to experience both romance and some early lessons in marriage. Navigating terrain such as Torres del Paine National Park hand-in-hand with your loved one, the only thing you will need is something dazzling to point you in the right direction.
For the fairytale couple who enjoy wine: Colmar, France (Photo credit: iStock)
Located in the Alsace region of France, Colmar is nothing short of picturesque. Situated on the Lauch River, this Alsatian wine capital is home to well-preserved architectural landmarks and world renowned museums. Romance is abuzz in this “ville” fit for a fairytale. Complete the picture with a ring fit for a queen – or in this case, a Princess.
For the couple that desires crisp serenity: Banff, Alberta (Photo credit: iStock)
A honeymoon on the same continent is always a great idea, so look no further than our neighbor to the North. With jaw-dropping landscapes and a lake with the richest hue of turquoise, Banff is a resort town where you can hike, ski, swim and lounge all in one place. And if you’re lucky, you may catch a sight at the top of many bucket lists: the Northern Lights. With a back drop like Lake Louise for one of your many evening meals, sparkle brighter with Classic Diamond earrings.
