Wedding Traditions—4 “Something Blue” Ideas for Weddings
Congratulations! The big day is finally approaching and you couldn’t be more excited. But wait, you still don’t have the ‘Something Blue’ wedding jewelry picked out? We’ve got your back.
The old English wedding tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe” has been highly valued by brides since the Victorian era.
The “something blue” is often associated with minor accessories to go with the wedding dress. If you’re a bride-to-be who wants to switch it up or a friend thinking of gift ideas for a bride-to-be, here are some stunning ideas to choose from!
1. Blue Hair Ribbons
The most traditional garment used for something blue is hair ribbons. The idea originates from Israel, where brides would wear blue ribbons in their hair to symbolize purity and fidelity. These are less popular today but if you’re fond of hair accessories, they’re a sure choice for you!
2. Sapphire Crystal Beaded Anklets
What other accessory could ever live up to the elegance and beauty of blue sapphire crystals? You can explore handmade beaded anklets containing vibrant blue sapphire gem crystals online.
They come in different colors such as: light sapphire, sapphire, dark sapphire, mystic blue, and more. You can find different types of beaded anklets that combine stunning pearls with sapphire crystals as well.
3. Blue Gemstone Beaded Necklaces
Blue gemstones like sapphire, aquamarine, and transfinite possess healing properties. Sapphire is associated with serenity and peace, while aquamarine is associated with clarification and breathing, and so on. Harness the power of these gemstones by wearing beaded gemstone necklaces or bracelets on your wedding day.
4. Lampwork Beads Blue Earrings
If you’re leaning towards incorporating something blue into your earrings, your best bet would be to opt for stunning blue earrings made of lampwork beads. Lampwork beads are perfect for achieving a glassy and shiny aesthetic, and can be found in a variety of blue shades.
