Something blue wedding jewellery for her

If you have ever wondered about the meaning behind “something blue” or you’re just looking for some inspiration, we have selected the most dazzling blue jewellery for you on the big day.

Something blue wedding tradition

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”

This little rhyme is a wedding tradition that has a lot of history attached to it. It originated in Victorian England and is meant to give the bride luck on her wedding day. Each “something” should represent an item to be given to the bride before she walks down the aisle.

  • Something old – represents the tie between a bride’s past and her family. It can be a family heirloom, an antique item or vintage fabric sewn into the wedding dress.
  • Something new – represents the new chapter in the bride’s life and the future with her spouse. It could be the wedding dress or a piece of jewellery.
  • Something borrowed – represents how the bride can always seek support from her family and friends. It is usually an item, such as a garter, from someone close to the bride who is happily married. The hope is that this sense of happiness can be transferred to the couple for many years of marriage.
  • Something blue – the colour blue represents love, purity and fidelity – the ingredients for a perfect marriage. It can be a message written in blue at the bottom of the brides’ shoe or a piece of sparkling jewellery.
