The tradition of wearing something blue is one that many brides practice on their wedding day. It can, however, be tricky to figure out a fresh way to incorporate the time-honored hue. There’s the old-school option of a garter fixed with a blue ribbon, or you can go more modern by choosing lingerie with a bit of blue worked into the design, or go bold with a blue shoe. If none of those options sound like you, we have an idea that will feel special: blue gemstone jewelry!
Gemstone jewelry is totally having a moment right now, trending across the board from dainty pieces with a single gem to vibrant styles with a mixture of two or three gemstones all the way to multicolored pieces with every shade of the rainbow. So fun! For a piece of jewelry as your something blue, there are many options to consider, thanks to a range of gemstones in the shade: blue sapphire, aquamarine, blue topaz, blue tourmaline, blue zircon, and tanzanite.
Whether you want something subtle or showy, blue gemstones are a beautiful route for rocking something blue.
You can go big with a glittering drop earring like Nak Armstrong’s Kaleidoscope London Blue Topaz Earrings which feature contrast between blue topaz, blue tourmaline, and blue zircon stones set in rose gold. A total showstopper! If you’re into an eye-catching ring instead, Spinelli Kilcollin’s Atlas Bleu ring is comprised of five linked rings in 18-karat rose gold, 18-karat yellow gold, and sterling silver, three of which are set with pavé blue sapphires and tanzanites. So stunning!
If you’re drawn to understated trinkets, Suzanne Kalan’s Thin Baguette Post Earrings feature light blue topaz and are available in yellow, white , or rose gold. We love the contemporary off-kilter design. A dainty ring is a delicate option, too, especially if you don’t want blue to be the focal point of your look. Elisa Solomon’s Anastasia Marquise Sapphire Ring is perfectly teensy, balanced by various cuts of white diamonds.
No matter your taste, a piece of blue gemstone jewelry will serve as an exceptionally special memento on your wedding day, and one you can keep and cherish for the rest of your life. We think that’s well worth the investment of a fine piece.
