For much of history, the color blue has been a symbol of love, loyalty, and trust. There is a lovely rhyme that has been popular through the ages: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in your shoe." Believe it or not, this charming rhyme dates back to Queen Victoria's time.
Queen Victoria was born in 1819. She ruled from 1837 to 1901. Her marriage to Albert was celebrated in 1840. It was a timeless romance. One for the ages.
