Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

MarriedThe old bride’s adage goes that on her wedding day, she must wear “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”. Because its usually difficult to fit four different things into your wedding day ensemble, brides can combine more than one into an item – i.e. something old and borrowed, or new and blue. Jewelry is a great way to combine these things.

On one of the most special days of your life, you should feel beautiful and confident, and nice jewelry can give you a little boost. The focus should all be on you – not the dress, hair, bouquet, or your jewelry. They should all work to complement the glowing bride!

Classic, understated jewelry works best. The great thing about these pieces is that you can keep them for years to come and maybe even hand them down to future daughters on their wedding day. Pearls are a very popular choice among brides; whether it is in a choker strand form to station necklaces or drop earrings. By-the-yard styles are a great choice too as they give an illusion of stones suspended in air. Diamond by-the-yard are the most popular, but for a unique touch try blue topaz or blue sapphire by-the-yard for your “something blue”.

If you are lucky enough to have inherited jewels, you have something both “old” and sentimental to wear on the big day. Alternatively, you can also ask to “borrow” your grandmother/aunt/mom’s jewelry.
