Most people living in the country know the time-honored tradition of getting something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue for their wedding day. The old represents continuity in a relationship, while the new gives the couple hope for the future. Likewise, the borrowed represents borrowed happiness from another happy couple (usually from the parents) and something blue symbolizes purity, love, and fidelity.
At Southwest Jewelry Designs, if there’s one thing we know, it’s something blue. One piece of jewelry that really gives a wedding dress that elegant and stylish look is turquoise. This is one of the most commonly blue pieces used in this time-honored tradition and we want to help you continue it with your future soulmate.
We have a wide variety of blue pieces that we think would go nicely with your wedding dress. With a wedding outfit for the bride, you don’t want your accessories to overpower the beauty of the dress. That’s why our team has put together a few examples of some turquoise jewelry that would work well with your ensemble.
Something Blue: Bracelets
This piece captures a simple appeal, giving you the blue you need for your wedding day, yet at the same time, it's subtle so your wedding dress can shine. If you want a bracelet, we definitely recommend something smaller, like this piece.
Something Blue: Earrings
Another popular option is turquoise earrings. Earrings pair well with a white wedding dress, especially if you go with a lighter blue color. Unlike a bracelet, you can afford to go a little more extravagant with turquoise earrings. The opal inlay plays well with the white of a dress with this specific set of earrings.
Something Blue: Pendants and Necklaces
This one you have to be a little more careful with. You should choose a turquoise necklace or pendant that’s both small and simple. The effect, however, can be really stunning, especially if the dress has a lower neckline.
Whatever you decide to choose, just think simple and elegant and you’re sure to look gorgeous on your special day!
