Something Blue for the Bride: Earrings
June 10, 2009 by Yelena Jenkins
Despite the evolving nature of wedding trends, most brides still follow the wedding tradition of wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. The wedding dress easily serves as a bride’s something new, and family heirlooms such as handkerchiefs, veils, brooches and garters are classic picks for something borrowed or something old. The item that most brides struggle with is finding their perfect ‘something blue.’
Our favorite way to incorporate something blue into the bride’s wedding day ensemble is to pick a stunning piece of jewelry with a blue stone. Sapphire, blue topaz and aquamarine are lovely blue hued gemstones for a bride to choose. Brides who prefer a quiet, understated something blue should choose small blue gemstone and diamond earrings. By wearing delicate studs or earrings with just a small drop, the ‘something blue’ is not overpowering; it’s a subtle compliment to the wedding dress.
These earrings are crafted in a classic vintage design with timeless appeal. Brides striving for that vintage, romantic aesthetic would be well served by the beautiful blue topaz and diamond studs on their wedding day. We also love that these earrings are versatile enough to be worn everyday as well.
Like the earrings above, these delicate beauties also have a vintage allure (pictured at top left). Dainty oval sapphires are surrounded by a burst of diamonds totaling nearly a half carat in weight – simply stunning, and perfect for the bride incorporating a vintage theme into her wedding attire.
For a little more flair, these pear shaped blue topaz drop earrings are an ideal pick. A small drop gives them extra oomph and the modern shape is great for brides who want small earrings that still make a statement. Best of all, they are a steal at under $200.
