Something New, Something Blue!

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue—you have probably heard a reference to this tradition in pop culture, but did you know that it dates back to the Victorian era? This sing-song rhyme details the items a bride should collect from friends and family to wear on her wedding day. Each item is supposed to bring luck to the bride in various aspects of her marriage, from wealth to fidelity. Although brides today aren’t as superstitious as in the past, it can still be a fun challenge to attempt before your big day.

But where do you start? There are so many ways to incorporate this tradition and you want your way to be unique and memorable. Plus, planning a wedding is already stressful, and now you have four more decisions to make! Well, luckily, if you decide to make your “something blue” a piece of jewelry from Shane Co., you can cross “something new” off your list as well. Here are a few ideas.


When styling your wedding jewelry, you don’t want anything to overpower the beauty of the dress. Jewelry is meant to accent an outfit, and wedding jewelry is no different. That’s why this Kentucky blue sapphire pendant is a great addition to any gown. With a one-carat center stone, this necklace has a classic look that is sure to enhance your style. Shane Co. carries multiple chain lengths as well, so this pendant can complement a variety of necklines.

They incorporate an infinity symbol, which is a beautiful representation of your everlasting love. With 10 diamonds accenting the main sapphire, these earrings have enough sparkle to be noticed with either a bridal up-do or a loose hairstyle. They are the perfect combination of a stud and a dangle, extending just below the earlobe, but not so far as to snag your dress. These earrings are timeless and can be passed down to children or lent to friends or family members on their wedding day.

Whether you choose one piece or all three, choosing jewelry for your “something blue” will complete your bridal look.
